  1. “Where we have lacked and He has been enough. Where we have fallen and He has not faltered. Where we have holes and He has filled them.” —Oh how true this has been in my life. It makes me so relieved to know that our end is not one with holes, that because of His love and sacrifice I have been given the freedom to live wholly. Wholly in Him and for Him. What a comforting thought.

  2. You said it in a nutshell: “our relationships, our fears, our doubts, our insecurities and even in our greatest moments of success that lead us to stumble over our own egos.”
    “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us” 2 Corinthians 4:6-8…. your holes remind me of all my cracks that I need to let God fill!

  3. Triple hooray for Lisa’s words here at (in)courage! I especially love this: “Because when we are willing to look at those deep down places we discover truth. We feel community. We become brave. We find healing.” You remind me why it’s important {and healthy!} to dive deep into our holes: so we my become {w}hole. I’m thankful for your healing message here. Love you so much!

  4. Lisa,
    Thank you for your words – so much needed by me right now as my husband and I struggle with a big hole – the looming probable sale of our family home of 26 years to help pay our debts. We are in our 60s and retired and never in our wilest dreams expected to be in this position at this time of our lives.
    We have caused the hole by being bad stewards and making reckless decisions, not reyling on God for guidance with our finances. Now, we are faced with the cosequences and know God is our only answer to make this hole, whole. Your books sounds great – i will download the first chapter, as books are not included in our budget which had been drawn up for us be a great Christian organisation started in England (we live in Australia despite my email address seeming otherwise), and now well established in Australia – Christians Against Poverty,who work with anybody who signs up with them, and helps them cope with the “Big Boys” in the Debt Collection business, taking a lot of the stress of those struggling. It’s very early days for us yet, buy praying God will keep nudging us on with Baby Steps to make the w(hole).

    Sorry for the scroller!!!!

  5. Sounds like a great book. Please enter me for the giveaway. I think different life seasons produce different holes. My best testimonies have come from hard times when He filled me as learned to trust more, question less, and obey. The Christian life can be so freeing but we get in the way. Our doubts and the enemies voice cloud our vision, fog our focus, and prevent us from yoking ourselves to Him. Make God bless you Lisa as you illuminate the holes and open the discussion to provide healing, change, and a clear passage.
