If you came over from Encouragement for Today, welcome! I’m so glad you are here.

Maybe you feel unfinished.

I used to think that was a bad thing, but now I realize most of us are unfinished in some way. It’s become an adventure of sorts.

Where we discover what our God sees that we don’t.

Where we take big steps of faith (that might seem small to others) and discover God waiting on the other side, applauding as we follow the path He carved out for each of us.

Where we find grace when we fall short and not to linger in that place overly long, but to keep on moving.

Where we dance in delight when we accept our unfinished selves as we trust in a God who completes us.

If I could share one piece of advice from living unfinished, it would be this:

Unfinished doesn’t equal unworthy. 

It just means that we are still growing.

Maybe like me you need a reminder of that from time to time. I’m so excited that you’ve joined me today that I want to share one of my favorite visuals. When I get all tied up in knots about what I’m doing, or not doing, or what I’m supposed to be doing, or comparing myself to what others are doing. . . (exhausting, right?), I just remind myself of these truths:

God is with me every step.

I am never too broken (too unfinished, too anything) to be restored and loved by God.

I can rest in what Jesus has already done on the cross.

God loved me first. He meets me right where I am. 

 There is a place beyond where I am today.

Maybe you need to remind yourself of those same truths. Download this free printable to help: The Mended Heart_Quotes Poster
