Bridget A Thomas’ Whole Heart Challenge

This is a timely challenge, for me.

Lately, I’ve been thinking about wanting to give myself wholly to God. However, I’ve also been more aware of my habit of holding back. No matter how much I want to give Him my whole heart, everything, I fail, on a couple of levels.

First, I’m afraid of failing. Yes, I do see the irony.

Second, I’m afraid He’ll ask me to do something and either I won’t understand or I’ll fall short. I’m afraid I’ll mess it up. Yes, irony here, too.

Third, I’m not sure where all the pieces are. I once described to my sister how I felt. My heart was shredded, and the pieces were scattered everywhere. How would I ever gather up all the pieces? What about the pieces lost forever?

I listened to the song Bridget included and let YouTube roll to the next song and the next. The third song was Danny Gokey’s “Tell Your Heart To Beat Again,” Including the story behind the words:

It’s time to tell my heart to beat again.


  1. Beautifully said. I am so thankful that God does not give up on us. He is a loving, caring, and reassuring Father. If we fall short, He will help us get back on track, if we allow Him to. I pray the journey ahead helps you to find the freedom in giving your all to the Lord.

    • Amen. ❤
