Sunday, standing in praise and worship I heard God whisper “You are whole.” It wasn’t audible, but it was clear.
I admit with all that I have been going through, that was the last thing I expected to hear this week. Although I have felt at peace, in the back of my mind, my worry was that I would break after the death of my mother. I have anticipated it because of our closeness and the way I responded after the death of my father. Yes, I am in a different spot in my life and I am not twenty-years old; it has still been my worry.
Hearing God tell me that “I am whole” made that worry dissipate. No, my life is not perfect. Yes, I am a work in progress. However, because of what Christ did on Calvary and the empty tomb, I am whole. It was finished before I ever started.
I realized how important it is to listen to what God says. Not just to memorize and meditate on, but to let His Words penetrate deep in my heart. He brings life through His Word. He brings healing through His Word, not just physically. God brings healing to the point that we become whole in Him.
