Today’s Sunday Lyric is inspired by the FMF Prompt, COMPLETE
Our family enjoys building puzzles together. In recent years, my husband has sneaked into the den to take a piece of the puzzle. We would work for weeks to finish the puzzle only to find the last piece missing. We would look everywhere for the piece to no avail.
Just at the right time, my husband would walk in and place his one piece into the puzzle and claim the “prize” as the one who finished the puzzle. He did this several times. Soon the kids caught on and more quickly ran to him for the final piece.
Then one time, he swore he had not taken a piece of the puzzle. So the puzzle was incomplete. There is nothing like not being able to complete a puzzle. It feels like all the work was to no avail. So what do you do? Leave it sitting there until you find the piece or just through the whole thing away? My husband tried finding another piece from other puzzles or from the edge to fit in, but nothing ever looked right.
Do you Feel Complete?
It is similar in our own lives. You see, God created man in His image and he said, “It is good.” But he wanted to give us a choice of letting Him be a part of our lives. So He took one piece, a God-shaped piece and He waits for us to include Him in our picture. He waits for us to ask for that piece.
Typically, we put our lives together but something is missing. We try all kinds of things to fill the void in our lives.
- good things.
But the problem remains that it does not fit in the void.

Ecclesiastes 4:9 & 10 says Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
That is why my we, Mandy and Michele, have decided to join together to hold each other up and at the same time, we hope that you are lifted up as well. We will share about chronic pain issues and raising children with ADHD, Things we’ve learned about leaving a legacy, and then some fun and laughter along the way as well.
We will be sharing about how God helps us through the worst of trials and the best of days. We hope that you will sign up for our newsletter.
