Whole: Five Minute Friday

Whole: Five Minute Friday

I am giving myself a “whole” five minutes to write this post. Today I am rejoining Five Minute Friday where all we do is write.

The prompt is WHOLE.


As soon as I saw that word I thought of my testimony. In 2001 I became whole. Before that I didn’t know who I was. I lived. I enjoyed. I cared. But I had no purpose – no idea why I was here.

In that moment in 2001 when I asked Jesus to reveal Himself to me – and He did – I became whole. I knew He created the universe. I understood God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. I felt renewed, energized and excited to see where God would lead me.

It has been an interesting time during those intervening years  – new friendships – real ones; creativity – in writing, in painting, in speaking and even culinary arts. New ideas. Learning and learning more of everything but especially His Word.

I know He is in charge. I know He has plans for our lives. I know He can change us. IF WE LET HIM. (tweet this)

My trust has expanded. My faith has exploded. My caring is growing.

I have learned to forgive. I have learned to open up my heart and soul.

I see more. I hear more.

I am at peace almost 100 percent of the time.

I love to be whole because now I am starting to know me and like me. I am more confident in new situations. I rely on God 24/7.

and in Christ you have been brought to fullness (Colossians 2:10, NIV).

Time is up.
