A dear friend of mine gave me this card. The inside was blank. Well, here is what I would put on the inside if I were to send this card to you...
Yes, this photo is a graphic of the Missing Piece. And, when it comes to my life, God completes the puzzle that is me. God is the missing piece—AND the missing peace.
I have heard it said that “EGO is Edging God Out”
So true. When I edge God out, or take that piece out of the equation, I cripple myself—by thinking I am in control. God and I cannot both be in control at the same time, or there wouldn’t be a relationship. My ego must be deflated and pushed aside to commune with God.
He talks, I listen—I talk, He listens.
He is in control—I have surrendered.
Have you ever clung to something so passionately that you simply could not let go? Perhaps the struggle feels like life and death. That’s how the grip of alcohol felt on me. Maybe it’s another addiction that you are clinging to.
I was strong-arming God to say, I can beat this (EGO)—when in fact, at the end, I could not stop without His help.
Try putting that last puzzle piece into your heart.
Humble yourself and let go of the control. Let go of the alcohol, drugs or other addiction and let God nestle right in there and complete the picture for your life. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
What have you got to lose?
“For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
