There is a PERFECT Plan for every IMPERFECT Person

During my church service yesterday morning, my pastor preached a sermon entitled “The Perfect Place for Imperfect People”. Within his sermon he discussed how Jesus has a PERFECT plan for every IMPERFECT person. This particular statement really spoke to me, as I began to reflect on my present circumstance and where I desire to be. When you find yourself in difficult situations, and you have a plan but you are concerned about the end result, it’s easy to get discouraged and doubt your future. When you doubt yourself and question your success, it causes you to become stressed and discouraged. Just continue to keep your faith and realize that the work is already done. Despite your imperfections and your lack of clarity, a perfect plan has already been established for your life. With hard work, determination, perseverance and faith, you will arrive at your predestined plan at the right time, and in the right environment. Do not allow distractions and frustrations to cause you to believe that your passion-filled plan will not come to fruition. Keep this phrase in your heart and in your mind, “There is a PERFECT Plan for every IMPERFECT Person.”
