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)

Jigsaw Puzzles are confusing. It’s difficult to patiently place pieces where they belong. It takes skill, determination and hard work to complete an entire picture. Pieces must be joined together. Each one has great 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 our best to fit them together. We try to complete the tasks before us, but often discover an empty hole; a space which needs to be filled.

Sometimes, we spend time looking for what’s missing in our lives. We search for hidden pieces and become frustrated when they cannot be found. But, God lovingly holds what waits to be discovered. He fills us with His love and prepares us to understand; He is the missing piece! When we put out trust in Him, He finds the way to show us; everything fits together by power of His will.

God will prepare us to receive His blessings. He will show us how we’re connected and remind us we have been made for His great purpose. He loves us. We must work hard to connect with Him. 

When we have been readied to see the entire picture of our lives, God will help us place the missing piece where it belongs. He will bring peace to the heart of our faithfulness and remind us why we must always trust in Him. 

Dear God, Thank you for moments to remember You are in charge of our days. Help us learn to be patient, as we connect with You and wait to see what has been planned for our lives. We will love You with all of our hearts and faithfully remember; all things work for good, for those who trust in You. Amen
