YOU HAVE IN YOUR HAND the missing piece that others are looking for to “fit in” and feel validated. Many are needing connected to feel complete. Don’t lose sight of the fact that we can influence one another.
Jesus has told us that “He shall establish the works of our hands.” Psalm 90: 16-17 Our hands, our words, or a simple act of kindness, might just be used as the missing piece to help establish and validate another. We can miss an opportunity, not recognizing what’s right in our hands. Wanting our own needs met becomes a priority and that’s all we see. It can blind us not to see one another’s needs.
I believe, laying down our own desires, and reaching out to pull someone else up, will release the piece missing in our own life. Here’s how we can be helped through the process:
“Open up before God, keep nothing back; He’ll do whatever needs to be done: He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day and stamp you with approval at high noon.” Psalm 37: 5-6
There is a complete picture that is yours and yours alone! God has something special for you as you wait. While being validated, we don’t have to be like anyone else or compete either. You are uniquely and wonderfully made and of high value. God knows what we need and when to release it.
If it seems like it’s taking forever, be encouraged to: “Wait passionately for God, don’t leave the path. He’ll give you your place in the sun.” Psalm 37: 34
Don’t let the waiting puzzle you! Reach out YOUR hand to help another, and watch HIS hand complete what is missing in their life, and in yours!
Letting Him Complete Me,
