Fully Human, Fully Alive
Genesis 15: 6 "Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness."
Fully Human, Fully Alive [by John Powell]
God says: I am covenanted,
committed forever to love you;
to do whatever is best for you.
I will be kind, encouraging and
enabling, but I will also be challenging.
At times I will come to comfort you
in your affliction. At other times,
I will come to afflict you in your comfort…
Whatever I do, it will always be
an act of love and
an invitation to growth.
I will be with you
to illuminate your darkness,
to strengthen your weakness,
to fill your emptiness,
to heal your brokenness,
to cure your sickness,
to straighten what may be bent in you,
and to revive whatever good things
may have died in you.
Remain united to me, accept my love,
enjoy the warmth of my friendship, avail
yourself of my power, and you
will bear much fruit. You will have
life in all its fullness.
