What thoughts come into your mind when you think of the word ‘complete’?
Is it a construction project or a book you have been working on? Is it an outfit you have put together to wear? Is it a terminal degree on which you have been working?
Or, is it yourself? Are YOU complete?
The word ‘complete’ is a lot like the word ‘where’. It only has meaning in the context of a relationship.
If someone asks “where are you?”, your answer is always based on where you are when you answer.
Have you ever asked yourself, “why don’t I feel complete? What’s missing?”
If you have asked yourself those questions, you are in a very small minority.
Many spend their entire lives seeking and acquiring ‘things’ in the belief that having those things will make them feel complete. The fine house, the beautiful spouse, the perfect job, the Championship, the car they have always dreamed of owning, etc. etc., etc.
Wars, divorces, murders, strife of all kinds and dimensions are the result of people for whom something was missing, who did not feel complete….who were not fulfilled.
Is something missing in your life? Are you still waiting for your life to come full circle?
If so, there is only one answer, and it IS a relationship…WITH YOUR CREATOR.
Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28,29 M
OH! REALLY? YES!
