Complete

I found these cute pillows the other day that say "you complete me". They are intended for a husband and wife, and while I think they are adorable and would love to have them on my bed, I can't bring myself to make them. Because it would be a lie.

Ray doesn't complete me. He doesn't come close. Even if he were to do everything right, I would still feel a void. I would still be incomplete. Parts of me would still be missing.

There is ONE who can complete me though. There is ONE who can fill that void. There is ONE who can make me whole, even when I feel like everything around me is crashing into pieces. Especially when I feel like everything around me is crashing into pieces.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4

I long to be complete.
