I was teaching my “Discover Your Destiny” class, and before we started a student came up, completely distraught.
“There is so much to do in the world,” she said. “I get overwhelmed when I think about it!”
“You don’t have to do it all,” I explain. “You just need to do YOUR piece of the puzzle.”
Her fears, about trying to decide on her purpose in life, are common. Many people feel that there is so much to be accomplished in the world, and so many needs, that they can never meet them all.
That’s right. You can’t.
But you don’t have to do it all.
You just need to do YOUR piece of the puzzle.
You see, the heart of God is like a big puzzle. We are all a part of it. If we each do our piece of the puzzle, then the whole picture comes together.
It takes everyone doing their piece of the puzzle for God’s work to get done. It takes the usher at church as well as the preacher. It takes the guys to set up the chairs in the auditorium as well as the well known conference speaker. It takes the guys selling tickets to the world series as well as the pitcher for the game to be successful.
You just need to understand what your piece of the puzzle is. You need to see how you fit in the big picture vision of what God is doing. That way you can see that even the most mundane tasks that you have to do are part of fulfilling the destiny that God has for you.
Everything will get done if we each do our piece.
Do you know what YOUR piece of puzzle is?
