Healing

We are always in need of healing. Conversion progresses when we realize that the word always has to be in any discussion regarding our neediness. We aren't ever completely converted, completely healed, completely in tune with God's will, completely surrendered to Jesus. We always can go deeper in our conversion. Just knowing that assists us on our spiritual journey and keeps us from becoming discouraged at what seems to be our lack of progress. It keeps us from becoming complacent because we think that we have somehow made great progress. We are always short of the mark of where God wants us to be. Perfection only happens in heaven.
