For those of you who are new around here, I am test driving a solo podcast project. It may take off, and it may not. I am simply letting things unfold and putting in the reps to become stronger in brevity when sharing a message. Thank you for sacrificing five-seven minutes of your day to listen. If you missed episode three, you can find that here.
In episode four of Worth Your Time–a brief conversation about topics worth consideration, I address perfectionism and the trajectory life takes under such weight.
Perfectionism leads to burnout, mental health issues, and fatigue because it always points us back to ourselves—what we can do, prove, or explain. There is no rest for the perfectionist because there is always more to be done.
I think that is why this quote from Paul David Tripp lands on me like it does. We can exhale. We can trust God. We can move away from perfectionism and into healthy habits.
Have you considered how much of your life you are trying to get right–or how much weight you are carrying on your shoulders? It’s not up to us, and that is something worth considering day after day.
May you be rooted to the author and perfecter of life. Jesus. In him, we have been made worthy.
Until next time, walk whole, walk tall, and walk worthy.
