5 Minute Friday


 
I am one of those girls who grew up always believing that something was missing.
I remember wanting desperately to fit in with other girls and I guess that in many ways it looked like I did. 
But it never felt like it.
I could play the part and look like I belonged to whatever group grabbed my interest at the time but true authenticity was always something that escaped me.
Whenever I felt as though something was lacking my immediate response was to fix it.
And I tried...hard.
I have done every foolish thing I can think of to feel right...to feel WHOLE, to know peace.
Sometimes to the point of self-destruction.
And the very last thing I ever wanted to try,
has been the only thing that has had any power over the gaping hole.
The only thing that has not lost it's power.
The gospel.
 I was made for the King.
And His love makes me WHOLE.
Far from perfect.
But WHOLE.

  1. Lisa (great name, by the way), this is beautiful! The very thing that I have fought against - complete surrender to God - is the only thing I need. These words jump off the page at me: I was made for the King, and His love makes me WHOLE. Nothing satisfies like Jesus!
    Stopping by from The Gypsy Mama and now following you because I love your heart. Many blessings!
