So, sometimes, I'd like to demand of God to see the big picture of my life. He only gives me about a year at a time (you will go here, you will work here. . .etc). Sometimes it is frustrating and I have to be continually reminded (thank you Mom) that God works with me on a much smaller scale. And it's true that if I were to be given the WHOLE vision of what is ahead of me, I'd probably want to skip a few steps to get there.
The thing about the big picture is this. . .I want to see the end result of the work that I'm doing. I want the happy ending. I want to know the future before the present.
This season of my life, God is teaching me about the word DEPEND. I think this whole big picture thing has something to do with this word too. As I depend on God to see the big picture, I am going to give it a try to just be satisfied with his "bite-sized" chunks of the present that he gives me!
