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 takes determination and hard work to place the pieces where they belong. Each must be joined together, so the puzzle will be complete and the entire picture will be revealed.
Life is like a puzzle. We gather pieces of our purpose and try our best to make them fit. We complete the tasks before us, but often discover empty spaces which need to be filled. We take time searching for what’s missing in our lives and become weary when it's hard to find. But, God lovingly holds what waits to be discovered. He fills us with love and prepares us to understand that HE is the missing piece!
When we put out trust in Him, God show us how everything fits together. He prepares us to receive His reward. He helps us remember we were created for His great purpose and He shows us how to connect with Him. When we are ready to discover the bigger picture in our lives, God will help us place the missing piece where it belongs. He will bring peace in patience and remind us why we must remain faithful and trust in Him.
God is a good, good Father! He will work for the good of those who put their hope in Him and patiently wait for what will be revealed in the timing of His love.
Dear God, Thank you for moments to remember who’s in charge of our days. Help us learn to be patient, while we connect with You and learn to recognize what is missing in our lives. We will love You with all of our hearts and faithfully remember; all things work for good, for those who will trust in You and love You with all of their hearts. Amen
