The Perfectionist


If there is one thing I have learnt in this life, it is that ideas mustn’t be perfectly executed before it is released for the world to benefit.
Even the Bible said “the path of the just is as a shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto a perfect day”.
God being omniscient knew we would one day be “life giving spirits” when he chose to first of all make us “living souls”.
To me that’s humility right there, knowing you can do much more yet let it be revealed through time despite external views and judgement.
Sometimes creative artists like myself hold unto these so called ” unfinished ideas” because these ideas don’t match the knowledge we have acquired so far and also because of our concern over the impression the idea would make on the receivers.
What we have to know is that most times you may know something but it doesn’t mean the time is right for that which you know to be made manifest or you may not be fully equipped(spiritually and physically) to apply that which we know. Some of you may then ask “why do we know it then?”
The answer is simply because knowledge is from our spirits for our souls, that’s why we carry it on even when we leave this world and the fact that your soul is rich with the knowledge you feed it doesn’t mean its strong enough to put the knowledge to work.

The strength to put it to work would only come by continued exercise with that which you know starting from the little to the great. I also think we should be more concerned about the good it would do to the listeners however the stage it is in.
I am not in any way trying to downplay excellence but there is just so much you can do at a certain time based on the resources available to you, how far you have exercised your inner gifts/skills and how aware/how much you have made use of the grace of God on your life and outer gifts(People & their respective gifts, resources and grace).
After all, your excellence today would be improved upon tomorrow either by you or someone else because excellence is with respect to the times we are in. I for one have been guilty of this very thing I am talking about till God spoke to me and I repented. Have you?
