Just a Small Part

just a small part
of the
bigger picture
Have you ever asked God “Why?”
I have…many, many times. And you know what?…He has always
answered my “whys” … in His time. =)
I have asked God many questions…questions like:
. . .What’s next?
. . .What is your will for me?
. . .What do you want me to do?
. . .What’s your BEST?
. . .Why did you allow this?
. . .Where do you want me?
. . .What are you trying to say to me?
. . .When you see me, are you pleased with what you see?
Asking questions is good. I realize that more times
naught, I have asked those types of questions when times were hard,
uncomfortable, challenging, or just when I didn’t know what to do or
to turn. He has always been there for me when I have asked questions!
It’s in times like these that I get focused on that one
particular situation and I don’t see or grasp the bigger picture that God sees.
It’s like zooming in on a photo and focusing on a few pixels. Just that part of the
picture will seem fuzzy, out of focus, and it just won’t make any sense! But if
I were to merely step back and see that part of the picture included in the
whole, I would see the beauty of that part in the picture in its entirety!
God allows the hardships, difficulties, and the “unknowns”
as merely parts of a picture that unfold over time to reveal His beautiful story
in and through our lives!
He is painting a story! And it’s beautiful! Will you and I
trust Him, as the Master Artist, that those fuzzy or out of focus spots in our
lives are really a part of a master work!
“For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you;
and the God of Israel will be your rereward. “
 Isaiah 52:12
