I'll admit it, I'm a channel surfer-whether it is on TV or the radio station, I like to switch channels and see if something better is on. Yet, at times I am fairly content with what is being shown/heard. The first time I heard Pink's new song, "Perfect," I really liked it. (By the way, I just googled the lyrics and I guess, there is potentially another word in front of Perfect on the unedited version, so sorry). Anyways, the chorus reads...
Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than, less then perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel like you're nothing
You're perfect to me!
When I first heard these couple of lines, I thought of God pleading these words for us. I know it is odd because this is definitely not a "Christian" song, but it made sense to me. There are people and things all around us trying to make us something we are not. For girls, magazines depict how we can firm up, drop waist sizes, apply the perfect makeup, and have the best de-frizziest hair...just to name a few. Then, maybe you feel like you have to be "perfect" for your guy/girl...whatever that means in your relationship. Or, maybe it is just having a guy/girl. It just seems the world is demanding us to be "perfect" in their eyes, which isn't always Godly. And, often this leads down to the path of destruction.
God created us in His image; He has made you a beautiful masterpiece-He said so! (Psalm 139:14) I truly believe He looks at us and thinks we are beautiful and PERFECT! I'm not saying it is always easy to believe it every second of the day, but I do believe He wants us to see that in ourselves because He sees that in us. To know the Creator of the Universe looks down on us and sees something beautiful, makes me feel extremely loved. Thank you God!
