    Let me think about it for a bit and be back shortly to respond . Never thought about it , but great question to reflect on!

    I don’t know when I quit “trying to measure up.” I have pretty much decided that “what you see, is what you get.” And I try to live my life that way. However, that also means that I pay attention to what makes people do well, and what they care about, and try not to be contentious about their preferences. Unless, of course, it requires me to behave outside my values. If I am nice to you, it does not mean that I agree with you, or support your behavior. If you ask me, I will tell you. If you make it known that you expect me to do something against my values, I will either tell you, “No.” or I will ignore you.

    If you are “in Christ” then the only one who matters has declared you to be all that you are. When you consider the idea of “being in union with Christ” and all of the implications contained in that, the peace that passes all understanding floods your soul.

    That is a great question, I haven’t stopped and never will.

    The only person I need to measure up to is where I was yesterday. That answer is based on how well do I know what Gods will is for my life and how close did I come to being obedient to it. Do I know what God expects from me as a husband, father employee and friend. Do I understand what my gifts and talents are and how to use them.

    My problem is knowing I could be better at any of the three at the expense of the other two. And at many times being good at one means doing good at another. When I am doing good at my job, I am also being a good father and husband. When my daughter and I are goofing off and playing around I know my wife appreciates me (until we break something). The balance is where I struggle

    If I never had to measure up, my life would be much less stressful. I would feel “un-burdened,” free, content. Unfortunately, although I catch glimpses of that here, I don’t think it will be a permanent condition until I reach Heaven.
    So, I continue to strive for longer glimpses!

    • Scott,

      Thank you for sharing. I am glad you have glimpses.

      I am wrestling with exactly what you said about not thinking (aka believing) it can be permanent here on earth.

      I concluded that I’ve been believing poorly in the past. Since adjusting those false beliefs by focusing on my Foundational Core Values, I have had a dramatic increase my number of glimpses.
