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.
