Beautiful Disaster

Recently, I was listening to a song that had been free on iTunes many months ago. The song refers to a teenage girl being a “Beautiful disaster” that is “Perfect only in her imperfection.”  God gives us many examples in the Bible of those who are imperfect:

    ~ Abraham was too old

    ~ Isaac was a daydreamer

    ~ Jacob was a liar

    ~ Leah was ugly

    ~ Joseph was abused

    ~ Samson had long hair and was a womanizer

    ~ Rahab was a prostitute

    ~ David was an adulterer and a murderer

    ~ Elijah was suicidal

    ~ Job went bankrupt

    ~ Peter denied Christ

    ~ Martha worried about everything

    ~ The Samaritan woman was divorced (more than once)

    ~ Zacchaeus was too small

On Sunday, we will have a chance to hear from an author, Dan Hettinger, who captured the story of Darrel Chaney. A summary of the book, Every Man's Journey to Significance, the Darrel Chaney Story, states Darrel “had a nagging frustration that eroded his belief in his significance. Disappointments, setbacks and opposition attacked his dream. He was a utility player among superstars.”    Darrel is a motivational speaker and his topics include Every Man Has a Journey to Significance. All of us are affected by how perfect we are in our imperfection – this feeling impacts how we feel about ourselves, and how we live our lives. But, God has a purpose and a significance for each of us, even with our imperfections.

1 Peter 3:1-22 

Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
