Five Minute Friday: Whole

Joining, on a Sunday, Kate Motaung and other members of the caring and encouraging Five Minute Friday Community, for our weekly writing adventure. To learn more about Five Minute Friday, click here. This week’s prompt is “Whole.”

“Whole”
Merriam-Webster defines “whole” as complete or full, not lacking or leaving out any part.
And just in case I was still struggling to understand the meaning of whole
It goes on to tell me, “whole implies that nothing has been omitted, ignored, abated, or taken away.

Whole.
We are all broken, by virtue of being human and heirs of the legacy of the first man and the first’s woman’s disobedience.
How is wholeness found?
How do we become whole?
Not through another human, regardless of what the romantic novels say,
As articulated in statements such as, “You complete me.”
Not so.
Not true.

There is only one Who completes us –
The One Who was all man and all God.
Christ Jesus.
Here this truth spoken in Colossians 2:9-10
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”

Broken? Flawed?
We all are.
But we do not have to remain that way.
There is One who makes us complete.
Whole.
