Submit the Broken Pieces 

This is the story of my life. I have been broken and my pieces were scattered on the ground. But God saw my broken pieces and thought, "I can use those pieces. If I mend a little here and put this piece here, I can make this a masterpiece." But He soon discovers that most of the pieces are missing.

Sometimes, when we have pieces of our life that are ugly, we try to hide them from God. The pieces of hatred, anger, bitterness, and unforgiveness, we don't think God can use them. But He does. He needs every piece of our lives so that He can make us a masterpiece.

Have you ever tried to put a puzzle together and find that there are pieces missing? You're so frustrated because this puzzle can no longer be perfect like you planned it.
That's the same way God feels when He wants to use you, but He can't because pieces are missing.
We have to submit every single piece to God so that He can mend them into a masterpiece.

Once we have submitted every single piece to God, He can create a masterpiece. Then He can use you in ways you would have never imagined. In place of all that ugly stuff, He will give you joy and peace and contentment.

It will be painful and it will probably be one of the hardest things you've ever done, but it will be worth it.
Yes, you will have scars, but that will all be part of your testimony. You can tell the world, "Look, this is where I came from, this is what God did for me and He can do the same for you."

Submit every piece to Him. Every single ugly piece. Don't hold back anything, give it all. God will use your testimony and you will be amazed at how God will use you.


  1. There are some pieces we would rather keep hidden but God is the only one who knows just how to mend all our pieces into a beautiful masterpiece.

    1. Yes, He does. He knows exactly what to do to make you who He wants you to be.
