Five Minute Friday/Look

When you look at me Lord, what do You see? I truly hope that You see a woman that loves You beyond measure, and believes in You more each day. If You look closely, You will see that I am a work in progress. I am like a jigsaw puzzle, pieces of me are laying around lost, waiting to be found. Other pieces of me are broken, in need of some repair. But, one thing is for sure, all of the pieces belong to You. One day soon, all the pieces of this puzzle, will come together to form a picture for Your eyes to look upon with much recognition.It will be Your daughter, put back together by Your tender loving hands.

I love that we are both broken and whole in Him and that he sees the pieces and the process and knows what He is doing when we place ourselves in his hands.

"It will be your daughter, put back together by your loving hands."--I'll be carrying these words with me today, making my step a little lighter, my burden a little easier to carry, friend. Denise, *thank you* so much for all of your kind, faithful comments. You are a beautiful encourager. Blessings. {Dropping by from FMF}

Love it! I often thought of our lives being like a mosaic. Hard to fully understand until you see the picture as a whole.

Lori said...

That's just beautiful!

Paula Barnett said...

O' Denise, I believe that God sees you right now just as you were originally created. Perfect. Whole. Complete. I do not believe that God has limited vision. He sees our Truth. Everlastingly. And this is the Truth that I see for you, too. In love. In grace.

Kristin Bridgman said...

The picture of you is already showing and it's beautiful :)
Have a wonderful week-end~

Cathy said...

Aw, so sweet, my friend. Lord, heal my dear friend, Denise, and make her whole. In Jesus name, Amen.

I love this. The pieces of our lives lying in disarray, torn and in a mess, that's just how life seems to go does it?

Great thoughts here.

LOLITA said...

Oh, Denise, you make me cry. You cried out the words I long to say to my father. I have the same vision as you do, being a puzzle with pieces yet to be found and patched on the very spots, or am like a clay on the mold.... in progress.

Hope to be perfected in time as I have great wishes for your too.

Thanks for your visit.

Know that God sees you completely whole ... He has said it, "woman, thy faith hath made thee whole."
You must see yourself as He sees you.
God bless you richly.
