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

Is Your Divine Design.

And you saw it as wonderful!

You outlined my days. You numbered them.

NOTHING about me is a mistake!

I am part of the Heavenly Father’s “Designer Collection”

 And I wear His label!

“You formed my inmost being; you  knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works! My very self you knew; my bones were not hidden from you.  When I was being made in secret, fashioned as in the depths of the earth. Your eyes foresaw my actions; in your book all are written down; my days were shaped, before one came to be. How precious to me are your designs, O God.” Ps 139 13-17

Encircled…

Oh God you are my SUPPORT.

“Behind and before You encircle me and rest Your hand upon me.”

Like the seamless garment Jesus wore upon the earth…

I am encircled in Your love. Clothed in Your presence.

“Such knowledge is beyond me, far too lofty for me to reach.” (Ps 139:6)
