Five Minute Friday- Whole- Looking at the Whole Picture

Here is to another Five Minute Friday. The word is "whole".

As a Christian, it is hard to look at the whole picture. It is so easy to get wrapped up in the small details of life that seem so overwhelming. Life is just hard. Everyday I swear that a particular love one will never get it. Or that when I get upset with my little one how much am I going to "mess her up".

But then I take a step back and refocus. I don't know the whole picture but God does. He sees the things that I do in order to direct my little one to Him and how He will use that for His glory. He knows what will happen in 5 or 10 years from now. He knows when and how my love ones will accept Him as their Lord and Savior. I always hold onto verse 16 in Psalm 139,

"Your eyes saw my substance being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them."

 Every single one of my days, the days of my love ones and yours are in His hands. He sees the whole picture and I need to trust in that.


  1. It is SO easy isn't it? To get caught up in the momentary, that we forget He has us completely in His care for all of eternity. BTW, don't worry, you will mess up your sweet one, we all do, I'm so thankful that God is bigger than our humanity and He will us it for His glory :) Behind you at FMF in the #10 spot

    1. It is!! But I am so glad my life is in His hands and He sees the whole picture. It really brings me peace. Thanks for dropping by : )

  2. Ooh I LOVE your use of the prompt! God definitely sees the whole picture and learning to trust Him is a daily lesson!
