The One Missing Ingredient

I made a pretty bracelet with tiny beads and bigger ones too crafted in circles as pretty as can be, in all different shades of blue.

Although it was lovely, it couldn't be worn, for it had no clasp at the ends.


The directions had instructions for the clasp, but I did not have the one part that would enable me to make the pattern as I should, to make the end meet with the start.

Lacking that one thing made it useless to me, so I put it away with regret.

Months later I came across that beaded bracelet, and this time I saw what it could be for now I had the one missing ingredient to complete the design, to set its beauty free.

It filled me with joy to know that now I could wear this lovely thing on my wrist.

It made me think of how I was in the days before I met you; I was like a pattern that was at a standstill, at a point where I didn't know what to do.

I had almost given up, decided it was over, that happiness just wasn't to be mine.

At that moment when I had nothing more to lose, I looked up and what did I see?

That Jesus had been there all along, patiently waiting just for me; He let me know that it certainly wasn't all over, He would make me brand new.

I read His book with joy in my heart, for it taught me all I needed to know of how to follow in His footsteps, to come alive and let my spirit grow,

But there was still more blessings that God had planned for my life to be truly free.

Jesus was like the clasp on the bracelet, He had been the missing part and now that He was living in me, now He was King of my heart.

What I didn't know what the plans that he had to make my joy complete.

There came that day, that shining day, when God made my dreams come true for on that warm spring day with His Son shining down, was when I first met you.

In His wisdom and never-ending love, God had now made my life complete.

Now every morning I get up and pray, sending my thanksgiving to my Father above; for all the blessings He's put in my life, and most of all for giving me love.

And all through the day everything I say and do is to tell how very much I love you!
