In my experience, I have come to recognize that I do not have the big picture. I do not know what thread needs to be weaved into the tapestry or what puzzle piece that needs to fall into place. What I have found to be true is that I can trust the process – the threads and the puzzle pieces – to a loving God, Who alone has the big picture. The 2 metaphors help me to recognize that good things are happening in my life, even when I can not see them.
For many years of my life I did not understand or grasp the reality of the metaphors. Instead, I believed that life was filled with gauntlets and mine fields that I needed to survive each day. With my process and journey my eyes slowly opened to recognize the reality of the metaphor’s message. What I saw as disappointments and disillusionment were in essence threads that needed to be weaved and puzzle pieces that needed to fall into place for me to pursue my destiny.
In October of 2013 I had the opportunity to give a keynote presentation at the 2013 Southwest Conference on Disability. In preparation for my presentation of 25 minutes, I wanted to provide some back ground information to those attending the conference and my keynote presentation. I would invite you to read the article to see what I discovered about my threads and puzzle pieces. What I share in this article helped me to see that I am not a victim of my circumstances.
Instead, I am empowered to be a co creator who is given the opportunity to learn from my circumstances and in the process weave a tapestry to complete a puzzle.
Here is a link to the article in which I shared back ground information:
