I stared at the puzzle in frustration. Would I ever be able to figure it out? It seemed every piece I tried just never fit. I was ready to give up and put the puzzle back in the box. But, as I worked, I thought. Isn't that a lot the way life is sometimes? It seems all the doors are such and we don't know where to turn next. Often life ends up looking like this:
But, God already sees it as finished. It isn't a puzzle to Him! And He knows just where each piece will fit and that in the end it will be a beautiful creation, like this:
So when life puzzles you, trust God's heart. He DOES know what he's doing, and where each puzzle piece fits; even when we don't understand, or we think it should be different.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:7-9)
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
