Becoming Perfect & a Pizza Omelette

Philippians 1:6 (easy)

I know that God has begun to do good things in you. And he will continue to work in you until the day when Jesus Christ returns. Then God will finish this work in you. I am sure about that.

Read

I struggle with a lot of things – anxiety, self-doubt, envy – just to name a few. I completely believe in the power of Jesus’ death on the cross and the forgiveness it represents. The Bible tells us that everyone who has accepted Jesus will stand blameless before God one day; that God won’t remember our many sins (Hebrews 10:17). Even though I know this is true, I still long for a life where I do better.

At least once a day, I do something that I feel conviction about, or guilty for, and I ask myself the same daunting questions: “What if I go my whole life without ever becoming better?”, “Will I die one day still struggling with these issues?” or “If I haven’t figured this is out yet, what’s going to change in the future?”

The Greek word for perfection is teleios, which translates to mean complete or mature. It makes sense that there is no human perfection here on earth, because we aren’t yet complete. That truth isn’t meant to discourage us, but instead, it offers us hope. In the same verse, God’s given us a promise that He’s started doing good things in us, and that He will continue to work on those things until we are complete; until we’re perfect. And while we’re waiting for Him to complete His work, He offers us His continuous grace.

It’s so easy to become frustrated with what often feels like a lack of growth, a lack of trust, and even a lack of understanding, but we get to rest in the truth that we’re under the care of Someone who knows exactly what we need to become perfect. He not only knows what we need, He’s providing those things to us; every success and failure, every joy and hardship, every relationship, every day – He’s working in you and in me.

Tips & Tools

I’m pretty sure I’ll just continue to post these tips every time I share an omelette recipe, because they can be such a challenge. If you’ve seen these before, or you’ve mastered the omelette, feel free to breeze on by them!

  • Use the right pan. A non-stick pan is essential!
  • Spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray or grease it with oil/butter – I still do this even with a non-stick pan.
  • Make sure your pan has ample time to heat up before you pour your egg batter in.
  • Pay attention to your eggs and try to keep them loosened on the bottom of the pan at all times.
