Time to relax and let yourself be loved; your “massage” starts…now. There’s nothing like having a good work ethic, and I’d be the first to support the idea of being productive, and getting stuff done. However, I believe there are times when we can take things to the extreme.

For example, I once signed up for a particular self-development course. It was the kind that you can take at your own pace; but I found myself in a sense trying to rush to complete it. Now while it’s healthy to make steady progress in a self-paced course, it is not okay to rush to complete it, without allowing yourself time to properly absorb the information.

I also realized that the reason why I was trying to rush to the end, was in order to get the result they had promised – a brand new me!

I think it’s important to find balance, and to realize that in the midst of our efforts toward self-improvement, we are already amazing, and quite okay! I discuss this in my book: I’m Okay: Discovering that you don’t need to be someone else to get God’s attention. You can get a copy here.

I once heard Graham Cooke say: “There’s no place to get to; you’re already there.”

Don’t believe me? Check out Colossians 2:10 (AMP) which says that you are already complete: And in Him you have been made complete [achieving spiritual stature through Christ], and He is the head over all rule and authority [of every angelic and earthly power].

Still not convinced? How about 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV), which says that you already have everything you need: His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.

And check out Ephesians 1:6 (KJV), which states that you are already accepted: To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

So remember: even while you progress and changing from glory to glory (see 2 Corinthians 3:18), know that you are quite okay, and already amazing!
