The Mark

I pulled out a few of my old journals today. I just wanted to sift through some of the things God has spoken to me in my time alone with Him over the last year. I came across this page. At first I didn’t even remember writing it, but I’m so glad I did. I tend to be hard on myself. I tend to beat myself up when I say stupid things or act in a way that I’m not very proud of. I tend to miss the mark from time to time. I needed this reminder. I needed for someone to tell me that it’s okay to not be perfect.

For every mark I’ve missed there’s one that overshadows them all – – I accepted Jesus. I chose to follow Him. I receive His love, and I love Him back. That is the only mark that is celebrated in heaven. All of the angels rejoice over it. Every mark I have ever missed pales in comparison.
