Five Minute Friday: Whole

John-10-10-tree

 What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Broken from birth.
Innocence stolen.
Heart destroyed.
Faith demolished.

Lies are all I’ve ever known
From people who say the words,
“I love you.”

Words as manipulations.
Destroying trust.
Lies are reinforced.
My life is nothing.

I am nothing.

Parents, spouse, others.
All liars, all adulterers, all abusers.

All claiming the name of Christ.

God’s Word.
His Truth.
His Son.
His Blood.

Lies rebutted.
Abusers rebuffed.
Mockers denied.
Truth triumphs.

The thief came.
He destroyed.
He still does.
In our silence.

The Savior came.
He returned life.
He still does.
In our voice.

In Him we are made new.
In Him we are given life.
In Him we are restored.
In Him we are whole.


Linking up with Five Minute Friday.

  1. Yes! I love that song. There is nothing like redemption of the things that the enemy tried to destroy us with. That is power in the blood. Praying for God to continue to show up in your midst and for wholeness to ring out the healing that Jesus brings. Blessings you =)

    Powerful writing here, and it really speaks of the power of Jesus to restore what was stolen and destroyed and bring wholeness.

  3. YES! So powerful and so true…
