Do you know who Steve Perry is? No. Do you remember the group Journey? No. Well, I know you’ve heard the song “Don’t Stop Believin'”! Steve Perry was the lead singer of Journey who originally made the record “Don’t Stop Believin.'”
In the 90’s Journey had a toxic break-up. Steve Perry all but disappeared from the music scene. Now at 64 years old he did a revealing interview recently. He said he may release a follow-up to his 1994 solo album. He has over 50 original compositions. His problem, though, is perfectionism on the inside and lofty expectations on the outside. “I just don’t want to have any pressure,” he said. It seems no matter how good people say he sounds, he always feels he needs to make it better. To make it perfect.
People do that with God. They think, since he is perfect, they have to be perfect to join him. Not true. God is perfect, but he doesn’t expect you to be perfect. Quite the opposite. He wants to help you because you’re not perfect. He wants to forgive your flaws and help you to do better. But, he knows you’ll never reach perfection while on this earth. No way, no how.
So, stop believing you have to be perfect to go on life’s journey with God. He doesn’t want that. He just wants you to rely on him, and do your best.
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life. Revelation 22
