Honestly this is one of those sketches I didn’t think much of when I did the concept sketch, but as I was thinking of a name for it ‘Missing Piece’ kept coming to mind.
I thank Holy Spirit because 1. It’s kind of ironic that Eve is formed from a missing piece of Adam, but she is also the missing piece of the Garden that he doesn’t even know is he’s missing.
And that’s so beautiful because as I’m on this journey to figure out my purpose and calling the Lord has for me, I almost can relate to Adam in those moments.
Where even the expression on his face in this illustration looks like he’s looking for something but he doesn’t quite know what’s missing. So he’s just wondering through the Garden. And he may not have felt lonely or necessarily incomplete but God knew exactly what he needed.
He didn’t have to be sad or depressed for the Lord to know he was not good (Genesis 2:18). So this brings me comfort to know that the LORD knows the desires of our hearts far before we do and he already know exactly what we need before we ourselves even know what is missing. But first as Adam did we must find purpose and wholeness in Him and His presence first.
"May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!" 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 MSG
