A Letter to a Whole Father

As I write this letter the first thing that comes to mind is the story of Jesus healing the man at the pool of Bethesda (John 5). Wilt thou be made whole, Is the question that Jesus asked the man who had an infirmity for thirty-eight years. What is whole? The word whole is defined as many different things: an unbroken or undamaged state, all of something, a thing that is complete within itself. I know when I look at my life sometimes, and some of the things that I have gone through being whole seems like an unattainable goal. It’s not until I decided to give all of me to Jesus that I discovered this goal is very attainable. I know you may be asking how I can be made whole. You can be made whole by accepting Jesus in your life. The next thing is loving God with ALL of you according to Luke 10:27 (And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself). Then allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth (John 16:13). What is this truth? The Kingdom of God and your assignment for the Kingdom of God, which is your purpose. This is the way to wholeness, true fulfillment for your life. You becoming whole is of vital importance not only for yourself but for the children you are raising. The reason I desire wholeness for your life is so that we can raise whole children not broken children. So that we can break the cycles of dysfunction and get back to the way that God originally intended families to be, whole. Some of the attributes of becoming whole are changing your behavior, being around whole people, giving everything to God and I mean everything all of your bad habits and insecurities. There is a secret that I must tell you; you can’t make yourself whole God does that through his son Jesus. He does it in our everyday lives through the choices we make and our behavior. One little helper I use is, Does the decision I am about to make edifies the Kingdom of God ?, does my behavior teaches the Kingdom of God. Also, am I listening to the Holy Spirit and letting the Spirit lead me to the truth or am I overriding it and doing what I want to do. As I am writing these words to you, I write to myself. I know you may be wondering why I addressed this as A Letter to a Whole Father. I addressed it in such a way because I believe if you are reading you want to be made whole. Do you want to be made whole?
