The dictionary defines complete as “to make whole or perfect” or to “finish making or doing”.
Without Christ, I am not complete. He who began a good work in me is faithful to complete it.
Sometimes I get impatient. I want to know what the end of the story is, but I’m still living it out. I look at my lack, at my imperfections and shortcomings and in doing so, I feel hallow and unfulfilled. It is then when I realize how incomplete I feel when I focus on myself or my circumstances rather than on Christ.
It’s hard to understand that I am still a work in progress. Although I’ve walked this earth for over 50 years, a little more than half of those with the Lord, there is still so much I have to learn. In this season of drought and longing, I wish that I could say that I’ve only looked to the Lord for comfort and fulfillment, but I haven’t always. Yet, He has always been and will always remain by my side.He has always been and will always remain by my side. #fiveminutefriday Click To Tweet
Without Christ I can do nothing, and without Christ I remain incomplete. Even though I have some time to go before Christ perfects His work in me, I can live every day fulfilled and whole because He is with me.
