The biggest challenge to move was a very large wardrobe that belonged to my grandfather. It is a unique piece in that it has no nails or screws keeping it together. The piece fits together like a vertical puzzle with the crown like top fitting onto the cabinet holding it securely together.
I had completed the whole room except for the wardrobe wall. I could not resist the urge to work around it pulling down wallpaper I could reach beside & above it using a tall ladder.
It was while on the ladder that I accidentally shifted the crown piece. No one was home but me, & though I tried, I didn’t have the strength to put it back in place.
It was like watching a disaster in slow motion. Down it crashed! And there was nothing I could but survey the damage & pick up the pieces. I shed a few tears, of course, did what I could preserve the part of the cabinet still standing, & called a friend who is a master builder.
I was reminded that life is a lot like that cabinet. The pieces of our lives fit together for a purpose that should have Creator God as the head piece holding us securely together. It is when we remove Him as the One we turn to for decision & direction that life just falls apart much like my poor old cabinet.
But God is able to repair & rebuild the most broken of lives. He can make us useful with a renewed purpose & joy only He can give. He is the Master Builder, but only if we allow Him to be.
