Putting the Pieces Together
I believe health is more than what you eat and how you exercise. Although the primary focus of this blog is food and exercise I wouldn’t be staying true to myself if I didn’t bring up the spiritual side of health every once in a while. So if you’re not fond of things of the spiritual nature don’t worry I’ll be back to the nuts and bolts of health tomorrow.
I wish I could feel happy and vibrant every day but sometimes I feel overwhelmed. Sometimes Garbage Girl yells so loudly that all I can do is curl up in a ball and cover my ears. I still have days that I don’t want to get out of bed because life feels so heavy and, although I believe in God, still empty. Days that just don’t feel “right”. Days when you feel like the time is slipping like sand through your fingers. This morning was one of “those” mornings. I found myself kneeling on the floor of my living room needing to pray but unsure of what to pray. So I just asked for God to put the pieces together because I’m too overwhelmed to think beyond the now. Sometimes life feels like one of those gigantic crazy jigsaw puzzles. When I was a kid my parents had one that was a picture of all kinds of dice. Game dice. It was a picture of hundreds of dice broken into a 1000 pieces. I remember looking at it as a kid and feeling totally overwhelmed. Each piece looked the same yet different. That’s how life feels today. It’s actually sort of felt like that all week.
But I know God will keep putting my puzzle together regardless. That gives me hope. Hope for tomorrow and even hope for this afternoon. Day by day He puts together new pieces. Most days I don’t think I’m actually aware of it. And it’s rare that I know exactly what piece is being found and pushed into place but I know that the puzzle is coming along slowly but surely. And I know yours is too. All of us are being put together day by day. This makes me smile even when I’m sad
I hope you are having a great vibrant day but if it’s just one of “those” days remember God is still at work putting together the pieces for a better tomorrow.
