PINTEREST PERFECT?

easter-toddler-crafts

Don’t you just checking out Pinterest for creative ideas?  Doesn’t everyone have stuff like this on their mantle or dining room table for the Easter holiday?  So many times we hope things will be Pinterest perfect in our lives.  We try and always seem to come up short.

We expect our homes to be properly attired with the right color of accent pillows and the most beautiful accessories, but even those things aren’t going to cover up the hole in your couch.  Using trendy colors and adding fabulous pieces of art isn’t going to wash away the dirt underneath.  We put so much pressure on ourselves to LOOK good.  We don beautiful clothes, get hair coiffed, flawless makeup and manicures, but still we are just covering up the ugliness inside of us.

When we set unattainable goals, we are setting ourselves up for failure, but we’re also trying to cover something up with something that’s only temporary.  Pinterest has been a delightful resource for creative ideas to make our world more beautiful, but I wonder how many of those ideas have flopped or actually turn out like they do in the picture.  Much like our lives.

We try to cover up our sinful nature, our bad habits, our ugly side, but we can never wash away the disgusting truth that lies beneath the surface.  The only One who can do that is God.  What He does is  way beyond our perception of what things should be.  He even did the unthinkable to make that possible.

God knows what’s in our hearts and minds and only He can wash away our sins.  The new life He gives us, comes with a guarantee to be free of pain, tears and suffering,  it will last forever, it will be beyond perfection – as was originally intended.

As we ponder Christ’s Passion for us this week, let’s never forget how awesome God is.  He sent His Son to take away our sin permanently.  He washed the dirt away and we can now approach His throne completely perfect.  HOSANNA!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
