    You Are Already Complete by PI Girl Meredith

    You know that moment when you feel like you’re surrounded by beautiful, talented people who just have their lives together? And you feel like the most untalented, unwanted blemish that ever walked into a room?

    Maybe you haven’t been there, but that moment was my life for a really long time.

    Really, I have always struggled with feeling incomplete. I have never seemed able to escape the idea that I need to look better, do things better and just be better. Without realizing it, I was always measuring myself against everyone else, taking stock of how this girl or that girl was better than me. And to be honest, I often still do.

    But the Lord showed me, and still reminds me, of one truth that always helps put all of that back into perspective. Colossians 2:10 says that we “are complete in Him, the head of all principality and power.”

    Whoa. That’s earth-shattering. There is just so much packed into those few little words!

    First, that verse reminds me how loved we are by God. God personally created us and intricately designed us before we were even born (Psalm 139:13). He knows literally everything about us from the number of hairs on our head to what thought we are going to think next (Psalm 139:2). Not only that, but that same God who loves and designed us is the same God who we praise as holy, the God who never makes mistakes (even when He made me).

    Second, it reminds me that I was incomplete. I am not perfect in and of myself, even though I was designed by God, because I have messed up. “Sin” is the word we usually use for it, and I have certainly done more than my share. That sin broke me inside and separated me from God and His love. But that verse says that when I accepted Christ’s gift on the cross, He forgave me of all of that, and restored me to Himself (Romans 6:23). God healed what was broken inside of me and made me whole again, truly complete.

    With that amount of ravishing love and unconditional forgiveness, we have no reason to compare ourselves to others! God made us who we are for His good reasons. Who are we to question Him?

    And trust me, I know this is easier said than done. Every day I have to ask God for strength to change my thoughts, but He says in His Word that He will, and He is so trustworthy.

    You are complete in Him… (Colossians 2:10)
