Missing part!

What kind of joke is this? Who makes you put something together and then doesn't include every part?

What I didn't tell you yesterday was that when we were putting Nathan's bike together we realised that there was a 'nut' missing from the saddle. At first we looked all over the floor, in the box it came in, under bits of packaging - basically, we looked everywhere. Nothing! So where do you go to find a missing 'nut' - especially when it is late at night? Trouble loomed large...

...thankfully we scratched around in the garage and found a nut on the old saddle. God is good - it was an exact fit! Whew - that was a close call. I was just picturing Nathan riding around the garden on his bike with no saddle - not a cool thing to do on your 5th birthday.

When God shapes us into the people he has in mind, there are no missing pieces. God knows exactly what we need and the Spirit has every 'piece' to make us whole. God doesn't scratch around looking for a 'nut' or 'bolt' to make us the complete article. God has everything in his storehouses.

Psalm 135:7 - "He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; he sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses."

Made complete by Grace,
