The WHOLE of Me~

Not one-fourth.

Not one-half.

Not three-quarters.

Not even 99.9%.

The WHOLE of me.

This is what you desire, Abba Father. You know until I am wholly yours, I will never be truly whole. And yet, I hold back. I withhold. I come close to surrendering, but never surrendered.

Wholly yours. Mind, body, soul.
Wholly yours. The good, the bad, the ugly.
Wholly yours. Redeemed. Restored. Re-created.

This is the cry of my heart.


Lost in you.

Found in you.

One of one.



Today I am linking up with The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Fridays. To read more devotional thoughts on WHOLE or to join in on the fun, visit her at:


  1. Visiting from the 5 Minute Friday. Wow, this is an amazing post and also the cry of my heart, to be wholly His!

  2. I love this post, so beautiful and so true. May I give to him that 0.1% I tend to hold back at times! Happy 5 Minute Friday!

  3. Beautiful! To be 100% "lost in You" and "found in You". Love that. Wonderful Five minute post! And, how neat that we were both led to write with a math analogy. :)

  4. Yes, it is the cry of my heart, too. I know just what you mean by coming close to surrendering, but not surrendered. Lovely post.

  5. Wholly surrendered. So thankful for this reminder. I tend to think I need to be wholly burned out or wholly altogether or wholly perfected already. But he just wants ALL of me, right where I am.

  6. Oh to be wholly His it is my heart's desire. Love your 5 minute words today. Beautiful!

  7. Lost and found in the same that!


Thank you for leaving a "heartprint" of your own.
