Me: Hi God.
Me: I’m falling apart. Can you put me back together?
God: I’d rather not.
Me: why not?
God: Because you are not a puzzle.
Me: What about all the pieces of my life that are falling to the ground?!
God: Leave them there for a while. They fell for a reason. Let them sit there for a bit and then decide if you need to retrieve any of those pieces.
Me: But you don’t understand! I’m breaking!
God: No, you don’t understand. You are transcending, evolving. What you feel are growing pains. You are letting go of the things and people in your life that are holding you back. The pieces are not falling off. The pieces are falling into place. Just relax. Take a deep breath and let those things you no longer need fall away. Stop holding on to the pieces that are no longer for you. Let them fall. let them go.
Me: ok… but once I start doing that, what will I be left with?…
God: Only the best pieces of you.
Me: I’m afraid of changing…
God: I keep telling you: YOU ARE NOT CHANGING! YOU ARE BECOMING!
Me: …Becoming who?!
God: Becoming who I created you to be! A person of light, love, charity, hope, courage, joy, mercy, grace and compassion. I made you for much more than those superficial pieces with which you have decided to adorn yourself and to which you cling with so much greed and fear. Let those things fall off you. Love yourself! Do not change! Become! Do not change! Become! Become who I want you to be, who I created. I’m going to keep telling you this until you remember…
Me: oops… there goes another piece…
God: Yes. Let it be so.
Me: So… I’m not broken?
God: No, but you are breaking through the darkness, like the dawn. It is a new day. Become! Become who you really are!
