Before I met my husband, I had a few boyfriends who were nice guys. Some of them were really smart, some of them were very funny, some of them were very philosophical and some had some great business skills. They were all unique and great in their own ways. When I met Reece, it was really obvious that we were both very different people, but in a really good way. Of course we had some very essential commonalities, but to this day after more than 18 years of marriage, we are still very distinct and unique individuals. One of the beauties of our relationship is how well we complement each other.
So I’ve been thinking about this idea of complementary natures as it relates to God and us as individuals. It seems to me that we are God’s complement – broken, weak, frail, dysfunctional, insecure, etc and God is our complement. Sometimes I’ve tried to find my complement in various human relationships only to be disappointed and hurt. The only true complement to our true self is the Truine God. They have designed us to be Their complement 🙂
