Fullness of God

Today my heart is enraptured by the unfathomable love of Christ.
Ephesians 3:17-19 NIV
" And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
I am whole. 
I do not completely grasp the concept. Can anyone really?
Yet for some reason, this morning it is all that I can think of. 
Fullness...Lacking nothing. Complete. Whole.
To be filled of all the "fullness of God" is to know God. 

John 17:3 NIV "Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."
When I know God, I know His love. I can begin to see the depth, and overwhelming vastness of His love for me. And when I can see that love, I can trust Him. I can trust in the motive of that love, and I trust in the undeserved favor and grace that was offered through Christ.
Because of Christ and because of His the unmerited favor, love and affection, I lack nothing. 

I am complete.
