Finding God's Goodness

Week Eleven: Perfect Love. Christ is Love

Month Three: The Virtue of Prudence. Valuing God and finding love.

During this season of Lent, sin reminds us that love can only be made perfect in the chaste Christ. This has been a hard concept for an achiever and recovering perfectionist like me. When I do something, I want to succeed. It is difficult emotionally when I don’t, and I’ve set my life up to avoid these situations.

As I mature in my spiritual journey, I realize how ego-driven thinking this is. I am dust and will return to dust. Only Christ is perfection, both human and divine. Sin, or anything I do that disconnects me from God, ultimately ends up helping me constantly to look for God, to strive for perfect love. If I achieved the perfect love in this life, I would experience heaven on earth. My eternal resting place will be lived in perfect love.

I am forgiven for all my sins.

Ephesians 1:11

Thank you, Lord, for allowing me moments of perfect love in my life yet not allowing me to be complacent.
