I am whole
My experience with spirituality begins and ends with Jesus.
I have known that he loves me all of my life. I remember feeling as though he walked beside me in the halls at school.
When I was in despair, I prayed and he rescued me. He still does. When I have been conflicted about something, I have prayed for guidance, and I have literally heard God’s voice, not audibly, but in my heart, giving me the wisdom I needed to make the right decision.
The voice could only be God’s, it so clearly did not come from my own experience or knowledge.
There have been times when I have been exhausted and felt as though I could not go on doing the things I needed to do, and I cried out for help, and the strength flowed into my arms, and I was able to keep going.
Jesus is with me all of the time. Because of him I can get through anything. When I am sad, he comforts me, and when I am angry, he helps me see the other person as a child of God. I always have hope because of Jesus.
My life isn’t perfect, and sometimes I isn’t very good at all, but Jesus is always with me. I have a sickness that makes me weak and in pain, but I still have hope and I have joy in him.
I have never seen a ghost, or spoken in tongues, or witnessed a miraculous healing, but I don’t need to, but inside I am whole and healed and full of joy.
