Pieces make a whole image
Updated: Dec 13, 2020
I had one of those days where I was in a funk, like the whole world was against me. God, wasn't on my side, yada, yada, yada, yada...I just felt very isolated in what was I was dealing with. I don't honestly remember at the moment what that was but I remember thinking that I wasn’t getting something I pray for so I thought God just wasn't going to bless it. So I walked into church and I sit in the back. I look over at this particular image and I began to take intent notice...examining the different colors and shapes to it.
One small picture at a time
What the Lord brought to my attention was how many times we see something, one small picture at a time. We can look at this image and we can see the little glass fragments. They're different shapes. They're different colors. They're placed differently throughout the entire image. It's really hard to see the whole picture if you're looking specifically at the small pieces of glass, but as I was examining this glass piece, the Lord was showing me how it takes more than one glass or even one perfect glass piece to make this image look the way it's supposed to look. I noticed like they were held together by little pieces of concrete. I believe it's in between and they’re sharded together. It's like the most imperfect parts of the glass that made this perfect image. It allowed me to start seeing things in my life a little differently.
I know I’m a very imperfect person. I don't have everything all together. I'm a sharp piece of glass and most of the time I stick out. I learned looking at this image that it's okay. It's okay that I don't have all the answers. It's okay if I don't have the full image. It's okay if the only part that I understand is this little piece of shard glass. As I stared at this image, I came to the realization that my God is a good God. All I have to do is focus on what he has in front of me at the moment and then the whole picture will become clear.
