Ready…

Remember that story by Shel Silverstein called ‘The Missing Piece’? My favorite #2son has that illustration tattooed on his arm. I love that story. I love the illustration. I can relate to that story. I spent years and years searching for my own missing piece. I never felt whole. I always felt like something was missing. I felt half at best, usually much less at worst. 

When my dad died, I felt like God had sucker punched me. So I told him I’d never speak to him again. I went from 3/4 to 1/4 in an instant. I spent 26 years searching for my missing piece. I couldn’t find it. Try as I might. I looked for it in relationships. Nope. I looked for it in a bottle of alcohol. The bottles got bigger and deeper, but it wasn’t there. I looked for it in tattoos. I got a lot of doodles on my skin, but it wasn’t there either. I tried online communities. They sort of helped a little, but again I struck out. 

When I finally concluded I couldn’t find it and maybe I would never find it, I decided to give up and die. Then my friend told me about Jesus. How he changed everything for her. My heart leaped a little. Could Jesus be it? The missing piece? I took one last chance. I cried out to Jesus to save me. And he did! I finally found it! My missing piece! After 26 long years I became whole

STOP

Happy FiveMinuteFriday!

  1. Dear Micey,
    Such a beautiful piece. I have read your story before of course, but it never gets old.
    Well done!
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Cheers,
    Leah

  2. Your short testimony here has made my eyes prickle a little bit…
    It’s a good reminder of where I should be setting my sights, rather than on other distractions. Searching to get better by all sorts of means but it all has to come from Him.

    Thank you
