Wholeness isn’t about needing God less…

can it
Be
that You promise to make my heart
Still,
at the same time
As
You give Your consent to the stirring up of
Every
anxiety that hides beneath the surface of my tender
Little
heart? how can You make anything better, inviting every
Detail
to get as awful as it
May
…is there anything about You that makes sense? your best
Work
leaves me baffled, but healed.
Wholeness
isn’t about needing You less, but wanting You
More!

  1. Thank you. Your expression of who God is and the beautiful relationship we enjoy with Him as our Redeemer touched me in a significant way. …baffled, but healed…isn’t about needing you less, but wanting you more! So good to be reminded.

  2. Oh I find the more whole I feel the more I need Him. Wonderful poem. I like the style of the lines too. My dad said when he was about 90, in his very strong Nigerian accent, “I thought I was such a great Christian, but now I find I’m just in kindergarten” :). I mean if he, who had followed the Lord since he was 11, fresh out of the palace of my grandfather, where they worshiped many gods, could admit that about himself, how can any of us think any different about our walk with Christ.

    1. That is such a good point you make–especially in what you shared about your dad! The farther we get along, the farther we realize we have to go. Praise God He enables us to make the progress He does. 🙂
