Being Or Becoming

Lord, Your word says I am Complete in You.

I look at myself, and I see imperfections, large and small.

In each moment Your imputed righteousness

Covers me, and Your love accepts me,

And I am perfect in You.

As an unborn baby is perfect, complete,

At each stage of growth, AND is growing toward maturity,

So I am both BEING and BECOMING.

I live with the growing awareness

Of waiting for the ultimate perfection,

While enjoying the completeness of each moment.
