Here is my Five Minute Friday writing for this week.
The word this week is COMPLETE.
This made me laugh. Talk about COMPLETE instructions.
What instructions are you following? I want to be me. COMPLETEly me. A natural born people pleaser, I have discovered more this year, when my ability to perform to any kind of "standard" I might set for myself or anyone else might try to set for me, I fail. COMPLETEly.
I'm not the me I used to recognize easily in the mirror. A couple of years ago I saw this in a store window and I bought it. It's a recycled bag. It still speaks to me. There is nothing wrong with being regular. I like regular, but for me to be COMPLETE it's gotta be like this:
"Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and COMPLETE, not lacking anything." (James 1:4)
No further instructions needed.
If you haven't found your COMPLETE yet. Not to worry. You will.
If you need help. Let me know.
