God has inspired a beautiful verse for myself and fellow perfectionists: " . . . whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things" (Philippians 4:8). These are not the thoughts that tend to occupy the mind of a perfectionist. God, in His graciousness, tells us that we are not to dwell on our shortcomings.
Yet it takes more than positive thinking to win the battle against perfectionism and discouragement. I'll share more about how to win this battle in my next post The Remedy for My Perfectionism.
