Five Minute Friday - Whole

I know what I have been and most of that isn’t worth repeating.  Cracked and broken is the sum total of my yesterdays. 
Damaged and flawed is what is easy to be.  It requires little effort.  It demands no faith.   
What I have been is not who I am.  Though broken and cracked - in Christ - I am whole and complete.   The former things have passed away and the new has come.
Wholeness in Christ requires effort.  Not effort to achieve but rather to believe. 

I know what I have been and now I seek to trust what I am.


I am joining in with Five Minute Friday over at The Gypsy Mama. Where you write for 5 minutes - no more and no less.  Each week is a new topic and today it was WHOLE.  Check out the link and see what others have written!

  1. Coming over from Gypsy Mama's site ... your post really speaks to me. You are so correct--it is easier to remain in our brokenness, damaged and flawed. Accepting the gift of salvation is simple, but walking by faith requires that we make a decision. And most of the time we have to make that decision with each new day. Thank you for your words!

  2. You always implant in my mind and heart to think, feel, love and believe in Him more and more and more. Just when I think I can't feel any stronger and be filled up any more than I am...your words permeate the air around me and sink deeply within my soul.

    You are an absolute treasure that He uses so uniquely and beautifully on this earth all for His praise, honor and glory.

    Love you my friend,

  3. oooooo seek to trust what I am. that's a challenge! my one word for the year is trust and it's so true that i too need to trust what He says about me and who I am. thanks for the reminder!

  4. So thankful for the One who takes our brokenness and makes all things new - completely whole. I loved your words today.

  5. "I know what I have been and now I seek to trust what I am." This is the cry of my heart, too.
    Beautiful. Thank you.
