Whole

Sunday, standing in praise and worship I heard God whisper “You are whole.”  It wasn’t audible, but it was clear.

wp-1460431894582.jpegI 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.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
