God has laid on my heart the idea of being "complete." What does it mean to be complete in life? Is completeness something I can strive for on my own? The more I thought about it, the more I realized that nothing I can do will make me any more complete than I am right now in the presence of my Lord. Each day I am striving to know Him more intimately and follow Him more closely, and in this mutual pursuit I am becoming even more complete than I was the previous day. As I walk closely with my Lord I allow myself to be surprised by His goodness and the joy He brings each day. I have realized that striving for my own measure of completeness far undercuts what God actually had and has in store for me. I cannot comprehend the blessings He will bestow upon me when I place my whole life, my whole significance in Him. I don't have to be a mother or have a job to be anymore complete than I am right now in the Lord!
