Falling and Getting Back Up…

Is “Wholeness” perfection?

Or rather in this life is “wholeness” realizing we are sinners doing the best we can,

falling and getting back up as we journey through the chaos of the world?

Always, however, embraced in His love and mercy.

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best night and day to make you everybody else,

means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight;

and never stop fighting.” (E.E. Cummings)

“Have mercy on me, God, have mercy on me.  In you I seek shelter.  In the shadows of  your wings I seek shelter till harm pass by.” Ps 57:2

  1. I love the images as usual, and the message is a relief, frankly. Be yourself, everyone else is taken. Yes. And I think you’re right Wholeness does not mean perfection. Nice, thought-provoking post. 🙂

  2. Oh this is so perfect for me!! Especially the part about “everyone else is taken”, so I should just keep being blessed to be me. I love that Psalm verse, and also e.e. cummings. Thanks a million, Sister–God bless you abundantly! love, sis Caddo

  3. “Be youself” . . . yes, please, because God made me (re-made me) and He continues to change me, making me and moulding me into His image. One day, His work will be complete and I will be with Him for eternity. It is one day closer.
    We serve an amazing God!

  4. “Christian holiness does not mean being sinless, but rather it means struggling not give in always and getting up after every fall. Holiness does not stem so much from the effort of man’s will, as from the effort to never restrict the action of grace in one’s own soul, and to be, moreover, grace’s humble partner.” JPII

  5. e.e. cummings is so very correct: living out our lives each day in the unique image into which God created us is THE hardest work we ever do. Let God mold us,not the world.l
