All the Pieces
Posted on December 21, 2016 by Graeme Wilson in Victory Call
This will be one of those shorty but good Victory Calls. I say that not because I’m writing it because I’m actually stealing it and so I take no credit whatsoever for it.
Recently I was listening on-line to a gentleman give his testimony at a Keswick event. He made a simple yet profound statement that gave me pause to ponder.
It’s not new – you’ve heard it many times, at least most of it.
Here it is:
“It is amazing what God can do in a broken and hurting heart…”
Then he said,
“…when He has all the pieces.”
When we are broken-hearted or perhaps feel shattered we desperately want God’s healing and restoration, but how often do we offer Him the shattered pieces – at least most of them – but hold back the deepest wound, the greatest fear, the one piece that God needs to restore us to wholeness?
I will forgive all except…
I will love others except…
I will surrender all to You except…
I will obey You except if…
I will follow You except when…
I will trust You in all things except…
It is the EXCEPTION that delays, hinders and thwarts God’s healing in our lives.
In your brokenness will you give your loving Heavenly Father all the pieces?
