Philippians 1:6

I feel a constant tension when it comes to giving into perfectionism. There is a part of me that so anxiously wants to indulge in the ideal, the perfect, the controlled way of life like it's some delicious hot fudge sundae topped with nuts, whipped cream, and a cherry!

Then there is another part of me that says with urgency, "Wait, stop! Don't let yourself go there! RELAX!" So I drop my spoon, and push the sundae away and go for the fresh veggies instead.

We all have hang-ups, don't we? Whether yours is perfection or food or something entirely different, there is hope for us both! Philippians 1:6 says that "He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
