Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-
It’s Monday which means if you’re highly motivated like me, you’ve planned the rest of your week. I started the day thinking of my daily affirmations, and then it was time to get up and dressed for the day. As I met each appointment, I barely had time to eat because there was so much to do. I had a thought about my to-do list and I realized that if I wasn’t whole, then all of my accomplishments would be in vain. First things first, heal.
We live in a world that hates the process. If we can get what we want quickly or easily, we’ll bypass what is good for what is mediocre because of our own laziness. How beautiful would it be to enjoy our accomplishments from a place of wholeness? I think it’s one thing to go for the gold and it’s another to hold on to what we’ve gained. Wholeness gives us the capacity to hold onto what we have accomplished. Before we aspire to be known or to leave our mark the world, let’s become whole.
Have you ever met a person of influence who was full of emotional wounds? They have everything: the dream job, the dream house, and dream car but are so broken on the inside. These individuals have so many people around them yet still feel alone. These individuals have all of the accolades yet are bound by substances such as drugs and alcohol. Have you ever met someone who was one scandal away from losing everything they have worked hard for? I have met so many intelligent, creative and beautiful broken people who have lost so much because they were not whole. I don’t believe it is the heart of God that we live in perpetual brokenness. We should live with our hearts broken towards him in a continual state of humility but we do not have to live in emotional turmoil. Jesus still heals and he desires that we enjoy the wholeness he so readily provides.
If I can encourage you to aspire to be anything, be whole. Take time this week to prioritize healing, for things will fade but your soul will last forever. Let’s face our dysfunction with courage knowing that we are allowed to be works in progress refined through the power of Jesus and therapy. It’s okay to be a hot mess but it is not okay to stay there. The grace of God empowers us to become the best versions of ourselves and Jesus has given us the grace to heal.
If you have any questions or just need someone to talk to, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m here for you guys, I’m praying for y’all, and I believe that you were created to live emotionally healed. Have a great week!
