The Missing Piece...
Jigsaw Puzzles can be confusing. It’s often difficult to patiently put tiny pieces where they belong. It takes skill, determination and hard work to complete an entire board.
There are many pieces in a puzzle which must be joined together. Each piece has been created for purpose. Without the other, a connection cannot be made and the puzzle will not be complete.
Life is like a puzzle. We gather pieces of purpose, and try to make them fit together. We carefully choose what is needed to complete the task before us. But, as we prepare our hearts to recognize the rewards of our hard work, sometimes we discover an empty space…a hole in the heart which needs to be filled.
We spend time looking to discover what has been missing in our lives. We search for the hidden piece which is needed to complete us, and become frustrated when it cannot be found.
But, God lovingly holds what waits to be discovered. He fills our hearts with His love and prepares us to understand that he is the missing piece! When we put out trust in him, we begin to see how everything else fits together.
Perhaps we need to see how God is preparing us to receive his blessings. He shows us how he has connected us for his will and reminds us that he made each one for his great purpose. The Bible says, " And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 (NIV)
I pray you recognize how very much God loves you, as you work hard to connect with Him. He holds the missing piece that will complete your perfect peace, and rejoices when you lovingly remember where it can be found.
God is near,
