Beyond the Dot to Dots…

Man between the lines…

We are mind, body, soul and spirit…not just the sum of what is seen exteriorly.

But when sin entered the world man was fractured into parts no longer whole.

The world continues to promote the broken man…

“Live for yorself”…”discover the fountain of youth so you can always look young”…”if it feels good do it”.

And in our relationships we often relate to others in this broken way.

But Jesus came to put all the pieces back together.

Sparks fly when we relate to to others as the whole person they are before us.

We are seeing them as God sees them and speaking to them in their wholeness even in their brokenness.

The transfiguration is a reality to us.

We are men and women beyond the lines….beyond the dot to dots.

Lord may I be given the grace to see the dignity of the whole person in myself and before me.  Let my eyes not remain fixed on the broken pieces but on the Glory of the Divine Image before me.”

  1. “Let my eyes not remain fixed on the broken pieces but on the Glory of the Divine Image before me.” I am adopting this as my prayer for the remainder of this week, especially. I like to think that when we see sparks looking at the entirety of another person, it is because we are then allowed to see the Divine within that person!

  2. What a wonderful message fromtheheartofj and yes we do indeed need to value others as people of worth and as the Body of Christ we are to have sacrifical Love, can we do this without Jesus, not a hope, the flesh will always dominate, we can’t even forgive without the empowering of The Holy Spirit but we must choose to do so always.

    Thank you J your message was a great way to start my devotions this morning.

    Christian Love Anne.
