God made my life complete
when I placed all the pieces before Him.
2 Samuel 22:21 (MSG)
My sons and I recently worked on a 1000 piece puzzle together. We spent many hours over a period of several weeks slowly piecing the puzzle together. First we began with the border of the huge puzzle, then worked our way inward. The closer we got to completing our project, the more excited we were about seeing the end result. We each wanted to be the one who fitted the very last piece in its place. It was amazing to watch how the picture took shape from fitting together hundreds of tiny pieces. In the end, we were all disappointed to realize that we were missing a few of our pieces. We had worked so diligently, for so many hours, only to find out that we couldn’t complete the picture without those pieces.
The verse above tells us that God wants to make our lives complete, but He can only accomplish this if we give Him ALL the pieces. Our Heavenly Father sees the grand picture of our lives, and He knows exactly which pieces fit together perfectly. If we withhold any part of our lives from Him, we will never know the beauty of the complete picture as designed by our Creator. Trust Him to know what is best for you. Place all your “pieces” before Him today, and allow Him to make your life complete.
