I am feeling torn in pieces lately. I am feeling pulled in a lot of different directions. In all reality, I know what I need to do, but I am having a hard time just doing it. I know that when I finally do make the leap that I will find peace.
Life is like a big jigsaw puzzle isn’t it? I have pieces that are marriage, children, family, friends, food, shelter. I have pieces that are homeschooling, art, reading books. I should have more pieces that are exercising. I have pieces that are baseball, dance, art class, basketball that belong to my kids. I have pieces that are cleaning, grocery shopping, cooking, laundry. I have pieces that are Jeff’s company. My faith is woven throughout, holding all the pieces together, but it also has pieces of it’s own.
I have a corner of my puzzle that is broken, a few pieces are lost. I am frustrated looking for the solution. How am I going to complete this puzzle? Several of the other areas are just not fitting together right. They are jumbled and I need to sit down, organize them, and put them back where they belong. Or they made need new homes.
Ever feel that way?
What’s funny, is I painted this artwork last fall. I put a little post it note on my blog calendar to share it today. God is so great. How did He know I would need to see this art today? That I would need to reflect on this very thing?
I know what I am doing this afternoon now. Of course, a nap is the first order of business, because really, one should never make big decisions without one. 🙂 But after that, I am going to sit down and REALLY prioritize and organize what needs to be done to make all the pieces fit together again. I need peace. I am ready for clarity.
Don’t we all? I hope that you are able to align all of your pieces. I hope the peace of Jesus floods through you and it all becomes clear.
