Pieces make a whole image
Updated: Apr 30
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, yadda, yadda...I just felt very isolated in what I was dealing with. I don't honestly remember what that was, but I thought I wasn’t getting something I prayed for, so I thought God wouldn't bless it. So I walked into the church, and I sat in the back. I looked over at this particular image and noticed what the Lord had brought to my attention.
One small picture at a time
How many times do we see something, one small picture at a time? We can look at this image and tiny see tiny glass fragments. They're different shapes. They're different colors. They're placed differently throughout the entire image. It's hard though 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 that they were held together by little bits of concrete. It's like the defective glass parts that made this perfect image. It allowed me to start seeing things in my life a little differently.
I’m imperfect. I don't have everything together. I'm a sharp piece of glass, and I stick out most of the time. 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 complete picture. It's okay if the only part that I understand is this little piece of shard glass. I stared at this image. I.e., I realized that my God is good. 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.
