Becoming whole and well through Christ

Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.

~ 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, ESV ~


The process of becoming a whole person, becoming a true person, and finding spiritual enlightenment are very similar. Both, require a slow progression of growth over time. We are only capable of following these paths in small steps. One day, hour, and minute at a time. Some of us grew up in a faith based family. Some of us did not. Others may have been brought up in toxic and dysfunctional families. Yet, there are those who were brought up in healthy and functional families. Regardless of one’s background: The simple truth is that when we truly come to Christ, our Heavenly Father works within us. He molds us and transforms us into the image and glory of His Son.

It is quite a difficult path to learn to look to the present moment. However, when we are willing to take small steps, we begin to realize there are no instant fixes to complex problems and issues we may face. Only when we surrender into the intimacy of God’s divine will and grace are we able to truly be human and redeemed. We no longer need to pretend. We are authentic, we love others because we have a true love for Christ. We enjoy the fellowship and companionship of others because we enjoy our fellowship and companionship with our gracious Heavenly Father.

We come to understand how we are sanctified through Christ and we are healed in body, mind, and spirit.
