5 Quotes On Wholeness That Go Deep

As human beings we have many parts to us. The “good,” the “bad,” the “beautiful,” and the “ugly.” None of these parts are good, bad, beautiful, or ugly. They just are. Let's not leave out any part of ourselves. Let's be whole.

Wholeness Quotes


1.

“Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.” 
- Maya Angelou

Pondering: Hmmm . . . the unshaken need of an unshakable God . . . the need . . . needy me . . .There is something in the depths of my being that hungers for wholeness. My job can't make me whole. My family can't make me whole. Money can't make me whole. Mr. Man can't make me whole. Only God can make me whole. Only Jesus. Jesus is enough. I need more Jesus.

“Wholeness means to be one with God.”
- Anonymous

Pondering: Gbam! There is really nothing to ponder here. Continually abiding in the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the love of God- the father, and in the communion with the Holy Spirit makes one whole. I get it!


3.
“Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance, your understanding of how the various parts and principles apply and relate to each other. It embraces judgment, discernment, comprehension. It is a gestalt or oneness, and integrated wholeness.”
- Stephen R. Covey

Pondering: Excuse me, what has wisdom got to do with wholeness? By the way, "gestalt" is a new word to me. I checked it up in the dictionary; it means "an organized whole that is perceived as more than the sum of its parts". Hmmm . . . Is wisdom is the bedrock of wholeness? Ohhhh! wisdom is whole in itself! I see. The more I grow in wisdom, the more I grow in wholeness.

“When we are not honest, we are cut off from a significant resource of ourselves, a vital dimension that is necessary for unity and wholeness.”
 - Clark Moustakas quotes

Pondering: I have to be real, transparent, and free enough to expose every resource of my being. I may be healed, but I am a broken person. And I know exactly where my cracks are and how deep they run. I don't pretend not to be a broken person and therein lies the big difference. Because the truth is, we are all broken in places, but it is those who know exactly where and how they are broken, who also know exactly where and how they are whole! And we may not be whole in all places and in all ways, but we take whatever wholeness that we do have, and we make good of it. And we try hard to work on the broken parts, and we ask for help when we need it.

5.
“Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him trembling in fear, and she told Him the whole truth. And he said unto her, Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace, and be whole of your disease.”
- St. Mark

Pondering: I've been asking myself these questions frequently. “Am I whole?” “Are there parts of my character that are lacking?” “Am I satisfied with where I am right now?” “Do I have the required faith to make me whole?”
