Perfection
10 CLUES YOU’RE STRIVING FOR PERFECTION NOT EXCELLENCE
When overwhelmed doesn’t make sense, ask yourself: 1. Am I sitting still with GOD on a regular basis? If so, am I taking in the full meaning of what it means to be still with God?

Quite honestly sometimes when circumstances are beyond our control it is easier to trust and give it to God. In those particular moments, we know without a doubt we are helpless and need him. 2. Am I carrying a load that God never intended for me? Sometimes we are overwhelmed by our own doing. We have picked up burdens that God never intended for us.
