You Complete Me

It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with other writers. We get a one-word prompt and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is COMPLETE.


Do you remember this scene from the movie "Jerry Maguire"?  It's a 14-second clip.

You complete me. How romantic is that? But can another person really complete you?

I'm so grateful for the love my husband and I have for one another. Our marriage isn't perfect, but we enjoy sharing life together.

A good friend suddenly lost the love of her life just months before he was set to retire. They looked forward to spending more time together, but it was cut short. It can be so heartbreaking to lose a loved one.

We want to be known intimately. I thank God for the gifts of relationships and also of community.

But the only One who can truly complete us is Christ.


Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  1. I believe that Ray and I complete the image of God through and because of our marriage. It's obvious from this post that you do too.

    Blessings to you and yours!

    1. Marie, thank you for stopping by! Yes, marriage is a gift from God.

  2. We definitely need human relationships but it is important to remember that the one who can really complete us is Christ.

    1. Yes, so often women have expectations for our spouse that only God can truly fulfill.

  3. Debbie, this is so true! We can be completed only in Christ...and that is a door only we can open.

  4. That was great... and I agree 100%... only Jesus!

  5. Debbie, you are so right. Twenty-four years ago I entered marriage believing he could complete me, and I him. I was wrong. While we do complement one another, we both must look to Christ for our completion, for our wholeness. If we were completed in our spouses, where would be the healing after the loss of a spouse? Marriage is wonderful, and it is meant to be a picture of the relationship between Christ and the church, but the highest of all relationships is the one I have with Christ. I enjoyed reading your post, and I'm so glad you visited mine. Have a wonderful week!


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
