Cracked

“Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That’s how the light gets in”…            -Leonard Cohen

As a recovering perfectionist, I used to struggle with being perfect and doing perfect. All futile attempts. But my awareness of my weakness and need allows room for God to break through, to me and through me.

That’s how His glorious light gets in. Jesus clothed us in perfect grace, righteousness and belonging and still extends the invitation to partake of kingdom life that is at hand daily when we look to Him.

Dispose all pride of self and place confidence in Him who will build something more beautiful than you could have achieved of your own. In your weakness, He is strong. It’s where the supernatural, wisdom, strength, and breakthroughs are attained. The resurrection, repentance…life. Realize that you don’t have to be perfect to be found perfect by Him and to live greatly. Beauty spills out of people who offer themselves and imperfectly rest on a perfect savior.

His perfect light, shining through imperfect vessels. – Cessna Kelley
