This past week I purchased a computer virus that I thought was virus protection software, which ended up shutting down my computer and resulting in a cancellation of my credit card, I had an error in a deposit with my bank which lead to a bank investigation and last minute transfer for billing purposes, and last night the heat went out in part of the house on a very cold morning.  It is so hard to not get extremely frustrated when things aren't perfect.  But the fact of the matter is that in this world things will never be perfect.

The challenge I face each and every day is to recognize the lack of perfection in this world.  To embrace my need for help, and to also recognize the security that comes from the knowledge that I can not, and will, not do it alone.  I have been made incapable of total independence.  God made me needing Him, and others, it is when I actively and joyfully embrace this need, that I can have real peace.  God did not promise me, or anyone else, a world without difficulties, but He did promise to never leave us or forsake us (Heb. 13:5).  My strength comes from imperfection, it comes from Him.
