Day 15: All Things
So…YOU say this is going to fit????
Oh 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,
& 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 & the tears
exerted to force things to happen before their time,
as I force "my will be done in my time"~
striving to fill 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 remain~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~
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.
Oh the holes of life~
Past, Present & 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 at a time
because HE loves me & you.
A NEW year & A NEW you one peg at a time.
I am finished trying to fit my own man made pegs into holes
when I can trust the MASTER Peg Maker to use HIMSELF
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?
"...we know that in all things GOD works for the good of those who love HIM,
who have been called to HIS purposes."
