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.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
You are an original masterpiece of God. No one else on earth is just like you. Your Heavenly Father knit you together in your mother’s womb per His special design for you. You are hand crafted by Him, and He considers you to be His wonderful work. Your life is a miracle of God.
God knows every detail about you ~ inside and out ~ how many hairs are on your head, how many eyelashes are on your eyelids, the rhythm of your heart, even how many tears you have shed in your lifetime. He knows your thoughts and your dreams, your strengths and weaknesses. Nothing about your life is ever hidden from Him.
He wrote the story of your life…from once upon a time to happily ever after… and every moment in between. He is your author and creator, and He wants you to trust Him with all the intricate details of your life.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made
