Today is a day of reflection. I have a perfectionist complex. I want to live not just godly, but flawless and perfect. Instead of living by Your standards, I have lived by standards that are impossible to attain. I sometimes I have set the bar too low and also ending up making mistakes. What are some realistic standards that I need to set for myself? Help me to live strictly by Your standards and to see myself, You, and everything else realistically. I am afraid of lowering my standards because I end up giving up. God, give me the motivation and energy that I need to make it through the day. Give me the wisdom and strength that i need to follow through those standards. I give You complete and total control over my life.
