Pieces

The Leprosy Mission produces an internal daily devotional guide, The Bridge, for use in offices, hospitals, clinics and projects around the world. Current and former staff and trustees from many countries contribute to the guide. We will share with you contributions made by our staff team.

Luke 10:27

Several months ago, I came across a song from a popular American worship band. The song is called Pieces.

The song talks about how God’s love is not given to us in pieces, it is not reserved, restricted or ashamed.

After listening to the song on numerous occasions, feeling uplifted by hearing of this love that knows no bounds, it then struck me that this song wasn’t only about how much God loves you and cares about you, this was also about how much you care about Him.

The song talks of a love which is not broken, insecure or selfish. As I listened, the message became clear to me. God gives you all of Himself and He wants all of you.

He wants you to love Him with all your heart, soul and mind just as He loves you with all of His being. He doesn’t want you in pieces, He wants you to submit every part of yourself to Him.

This is a hard task for everyone, there are parts of us we feel are unworthy, we struggle against the desires of our heart which are not in line with God’s will but if you consider how much God works in your broken life, how much more can He work in it if you give it to Him whole?

With the help of the Holy Spirit we can surrender more and more to Him.

Pray that by God’s Grace He will help you to bring your broken life to Him in one piece.
