Wholeness in Progress


God is renewing all things…you included.

(Listen to my song “Heal Me” by clicking HERE)


Psalm 51:12

A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit.


No matter how many times we screw up…no matter how many times we come up short…God is always embracing us in love.

That’s what “Love” does (“God is love” 1 John 4:8).

Our Loving Source only wants to heal us, restore us and renew us.

Forgiveness is always given.

Any pain, suffering or death will eventually lead to resurrection and new life.

Jesus demonstrated this pattern for us. The pattern is all around us. The darkness of night is followed by the light of dawn. The dead of winter is followed by the new life of spring.

God is constantly but patiently working to heal us, renew us and bring us…and all of creation…to wholeness.

There is some helpful advice on cooperating with God’s grace in creating a clean heart. It comes from Ira Byock in his book The Four Things That Matter Most. The four things are:

  1. Please forgive me
  2. I forgive you
  3. Thank you
  4. I love you

If there is someone who needs to hear these four things from you…why not do it today?

May your heart and spirit be renewed!
