When you were younger, you probably went through a million changes of the trajectory of your life and career. Throughout this, there were small and major things that you experienced or decided that have made a huge impact in everything that you are today. Even when we were little, God began to place desires in our hearts. Although most probably had little to no meaning, God was instilling His future plans within you during that tender age. Those accumulated moments are part of the pieces that are assigned to you. Everything is connected to God’s purpose in our lives. While you would dance and sing in front of your mirror as a child, you were building the stage for later in life to become a singer, actor or performer. Maybe you wrote in your journal that you anticipated marriage at a particular age, and now you are prospering and walking in that marriage. Perhaps you would play doctor on your stuffed animals as a child; in due time, you became a nurse, doctor or a medic. Recognize that God had His hand over you before you were even formed. Those instances you encountered as a child were not in vain. Everything is connected in our lives. It is a matter of using our connected pieces that He has given us for His glory.
Those pieces that God planted in you while young, will birth the promises spoken into your life. If you are questioning His plans, you can backtrack to those desires that He has deposited in your spirit. You have always been in the mind of Jesus. His validation is in the completion of your works that He has already given you. Even if the pieces that God put inside of you are not specifically for you, it is all connected. Those implanted pieces may even be used for your future son or daughter. God is so in to you, that He has already thought about your lineage and legacy. What an amazing God that cares about every little detail involving you. God may use you as a vessel for their future. God never misuses pieces of His plans. He will collaborate with us to fulfill our destiny. Those pieces are not hints that are pointless; He has given you these moments to place the pieces together and build on what has already been predestined. You have already started building on the pieces that He gave you as a child. It is up to you to continually use those pieces for His purpose. Start on that project you let go. Continue being the best parent you can be. Keep going in your career. It will be hard, but there is proof that God has been and will always be with you. God will never let a vision die within you.
When you feel as if the pieces do not fit, remember the dreams that you had when you were younger. Remember how God kept track of those pieces. His establishment has been with you this whole time. He has now placed you in position to go after all of what He already put within you. You will have many plans and assignments from the Lord. Even if you feel as if you have accomplished everything, or even if you feel like you have accomplished little; you will perpetually draw from the pieces placed in you. Everything that happens is connected to you. Even in the hardships, setbacks, failures and tears—they are all connected pieces in your story. No rejection or disruption can change your path that God has already established. God has been preparing you all along for this time. You have everything it takes and more because you belong to God. He has already supplied you with everything you need to fulfill that dream. Produce results with what God has entrusted you with. Sometimes it takes going back to that childlike stage to find the fuel to finish what has been started in you. Use your predestined pieces.
