So…YOU say this is going to fit????
Trying to fit a square peg into a round hole…
Seems impossible, doesn't it?
But isn't that what we try to do when we want what we want when we want it,
and take matters into our own hands?
Boy have I forced many square pegs into round holes that never fit.
The effort, the blood, the sweat and tears...
exerted to force things to happen before their time...
forcing "my will be done in my time"…
filling the holes in my life with those things which I thought would be enough to fix me.
But a hole is still a hole in need to be filled.
Our tender hearts, have all been broken in one way or another.
The scars: the holes left behind that need to be healed.
Our gracious God, could leave them as they are,
but His desire is to fill them completely in the best way for each one of us.
Someone may have left a round hole in your life,
but then He sends another to fill it.
It comes in a different shape,
in a different unique way that is designed just for you…
to fit perfectly.
It may appear that there is no way that it is going to fit,
as we have our own ideas of what our lives should look like
the Master Planner…
the Master Builder…
the ONE who calls you His workmanship,
has the "perfect" peg to fit into the life He has designed for you.
He is whittling away,
behind the scenes,
those pegs that look "square" to you,
the people, the places, and the things in your life,
into round ones,
using the finest tools
so they will fit perfectly into every hole,
better than what was lost…
better than any peg that we try to make fit.
He first fills the hole with His Son…
then He starts
one peg at a time…
taking as much time as He needs,
so each peg will fit perfectly
according to His perfect will.
Some pegs take some extra whittling to fit,
but knowing that they will all fit
in His perfect timing,
is where peace is found…
in every moment.
There are so many holes that need to be filled as we travel through this life...
and holes to come.
I don't know how many holes I have left in this life of mine,
or how many in yours,
but I do the know
the Hole Filler Who is hand whittling each peg,
one peg at a time…
because He loves me
He loves you.
I am finished trying to fit my own man made pegs into holes
when I can trust the Master Peg Maker to use Himself instead…
Who fits perfectly...Always!.
Smile at the square pegs that are in your life right now,
because God is using them in the perfect way
that is beyond your wildest dreams.
What square peg do you need to surrender to the Master Peg Maker?
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him,
who have been called to his purposes."
