Whole Again


We pretend.

We want others to see us as put together, as okay, as whole.

Yet, inside us, there is a little chaos…the truth is, we are a mess.

A beautiful mess.

We wonder, we pray, we lament, we lose hope…we find hope.

God breathes upon our weariness because we are worthy, even those times when we feel we are not worthy at all.

Cleaning up a mess can be lengthy, treacherous work—dangerous—painful—and hopeful…and freeing…and healing. For God, cleaning is love. Let God take out the trash. For God, healing is love…freeing us from the burdens we place upon ourselves and the burdens that are put upon us.

Faithful hands are holding us, in love. Stop trying to wriggle out of the hug. You are worthy.
