Something to think about.
I read two things yesterday and then had a dream. This is why the blog question has been written for us all to ponder.
If our lives are forming a picture – no matter our age or our circumstances and parts are to slot in like a jig-saw to make a composite WHOLE – then what pieces may be missing? What pieces are we trying to force in that don’t really belong….for example ………hurts, disappointments and anger.
Yes indeed Grace can shape the pieces to fit perfectly but there must be forgiveness and peace to make this possible.
What if we have a piece that doesn’t belong to us – we know in our hearts it is not ours to keep……give it back….Don’t hold on to someone else’s triumphs or ‘agro’
What about the piece you absolutely reject…..I don’t want that sorrow, that tragedy, that illness. How could that piece possibly slot into my beautiful life……
All of our lives are indeed going to reveal a tapestry or picture of great difference and variety but it is the experiences that challenge us a human beings that make us truly human. For people of faith we live with the Hope that God indeed will make all things beautiful in His Time. In the struggles character is formed. The potential of what can be achieved in, after, and through the heartache make the jigsaw piece when it has been softened and redefined by GRACE truly incredible.
My challenge this week may be different to yours but I will pray through the thought that if any pieces of the slotting jigsaw of my life need to be reached, oiled by Divine Grace, and then connected where they should be I will hear and respond. This is not necessarily about heritage or family connections but letting go of what is impossible but embracing and nurturing what must be redeemed.
Hope you have an astonishing week! Peace and Grace to you.!
