“…Something is missing… something you need, but can’t quite put your finger on it.  The missing link, when found, will complete the process…of feeling complete….”

Image result for caricature of 'feeling complete.'You complete me.  W-O-W….that’s a mouthful.  Let’s analyze it.  It’s so empowering, so overwhelming, and so loving…..and, well….so complete.  What is it… that makes one…eh…complete? 

Could it be a satisfying career?  It could, and should be… be a satisfying marriage, and family life.  When things go such… that we are happy… have joy in our lives… then it is easy to feel complete.

What’s it feel like?  It’s like riding around with a car that has just been washed, runs and looks immaculately… and a full tank of gas…you can’t help but feel complete.  Well, at least… when it comes to transportation.  When you’re happy with your job, your boss, your co-workers, and especially with your job-performance… and you’re able to provide your family with the necessities of life….all…make you complete.

Is there anything missing?  Do you detect that something is… just not quite right.  Sure, you might feel pretty good…but you sense that something is not right in your life.  What is it… that will complete your completeness?  You guessed it.  It is, of course… a complete relationship with Our Lord and Savior.  If we’re not on good terms with Our Maker, then there is “no-way” we can feel complete….EVER!

You’ll be thinking….something is missing; something you need, but can’t quite put your finger on it.  The missing link, when found, will complete the process…of feeling complete.  Let me be clear…one CAN have every ‘material thing’ known to mankind… and STILL, not be complete.  Things are ‘only temporary.’  We’ve all heard the expression… you can’t take it with you.  THINGS… are not going to get you to Heaven.  The way to complete happiness…Believe in, and accept Jesus as you Lord and Savior.  Repent of your sins, and ‘change your ways….’  Meaning… change from bad stuff to good stuff.  There you have it.

Don’t leave God out. “For when I am weak, then I am strong.” Paul had just written in 2 Corinthians 12:10. God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness.  Paul further says: “farewell. Become complete.” He is asking them to “Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.”  The grace of Jesus, the love of God and the communion with the Holy Spirit makes us complete. I praise God that in my weakness I seek grace, love and the presence of the Holy Spirit.  In the process of… seeking I become complete.

Blessings… cjlb…2/4/17
