But then I started getting this nagging feeling in my heart. A word. It kept worming it's way into my day. Into my thoughts. It just wouldn't go away. And although I avoided it I'm giving in and posting about it because I think posting about these kinds of things give me accountability and makes me more real. And I'm all about that!
It's kind of a weird one. Most people pick words like blessed...relish...bloom...faith...grace. Nice pretty words. Words that would like awesome stamped on a gorgeous piece of silver jewelry or on a plaque hanging up in your living room.
Complete just seems like an ugly word.
But it is so beautiful to me.
You see what I learning is that even though I am struggling with figuring out who I am, I don't need to. Because I am complete in Christ. I am a daughter of the King. He made me and that means I am complete.
I'm committed to being consistently in the Word. I started following the She Reads Truth reading plan. Here is what really spoke to me yesterday...
“The Lord God [Jehovah Elohim] made the earth and the heavens”. He is a God of both power and perfection, Maker of heaven and earth, the Lord ofabsolute completion.
And you know what I love? When the powerful and perfect God made man, he made something absolutely perfect out of something absolutely plain. He made man and woman, and he made them complete.
He – the great Jehovah Elohim – makes much out of little. He makes extraordinary out of the very, very ordinary. We’re talking dust into man here. And we’re talking you and me into new creations.
I certainly have other things I wish to complete this year. Weight loss..crafting...organizing...travel. I like the word for that reason too. Often I start a project or a room but fail to finish it. So my lowercase uncapitalized goal is to do that. But My mail goal is to BELIEVE that I am COMPLETE!
Did you pick a word of the year? I'd love to hear it!
