I’m reminded of Charles Schultz and his character Lucy. Her definition of team work went something like this, “These five fingers, individually they’re nothing but when I curl them together like this into a single unit, they form a force that is terrible to behold.” Lucy usually got her way too. In anything we do, it is better done when we do it together.

God uses this illustration when He refers to the individual parts of a human body. Each part has a function and it gives assistance to the rest of the parts in their operation. When sight fails, another sense takes over to accommodate.  When we lose the use of a limb, another will gain strength. I’m not sure where I fit into the scheme of things here.  I hope I’m not something unnecessary like the appendix.

When we work together as a team we can accomplish great things. Each one of us has something special to contribute to the mix. This can be seen in all areas of our lives, whether it’s a work situation, a sport, any kind of competition, discovery through exploration or science, building things, and the list goes on. God wants us to work as a team. That’s why He created more than one of us.

Lord, When I lose focus and turn inward, allow me to turn my eyes back to you.  I can not accomplish this life alone.  You have promised to be my pilot, my partner and my protector.  There are times when I need the help of others as well.  Help me remember to ask for help when I need it and not to try to accomplish everything  by myself.  I know that were all pieces of the big puzzle.  We all play an important part, so allow me to experience the joy of working together with others to share your wonderful news.  In Jesus name, I pray.  Amen!





About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
