Towards Wholeness

“Not good enough” is a lie indeed 
It’s fodder spreading farther out
Than just the shame it breeds within
Casting thoughts full of doubt

So if I’m finally “good enough”
What does that portray of my worth?
That I’ll do as the last resort?
That I’m ok though far from “first”?

Like a worn out fishing net
“Good enough” used for decor
But not the choice for catching fish
Just for looks, nothing more?

Is this how I see myself?
Dream to be accepted as?
Nay, this soul wants something more
Greater worth past earthly class

I’d rather take where God does meet
Patience wrought from tested faith,
With joy, refining work indeed
Grown to perfect and complete

“Perfect and complete, lacking nothing” - being made whole

Thank You, LORD, only You uplift!
You redeem us more than “good enough”
Wholeness, the best you have to give
What an astounding gracious gift!

James 1:2-4 (NKJV)
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

James 1:2-4 (CJB)
2 Regard it all as joy, my brothers, when you face various kinds of temptations; 3 for you know that the testing of your trust produces perseverance. 4 But let perseverance do its complete work; so that you may be complete and whole, lacking in nothing.
