One of my favorite hobbies is putting together jigsaw puzzles. I find it is a stress reliever as well as way to occupy my time during the winter months. To me, it is like solving a mystery. Where is the piece that goes next to this other piece? Or, what part of the picture is on this piece?

There are times where finding the right piece can be frustrating. But then, there is that “aha” moment when you find where a piece goes. I have often found myself thinking “oh THAT’s where that piece goes.” Sometimes it goes in the puzzle in a place completely different then where I thought it should go.

Our lives are like a big puzzle. As the years go by, pieces gradually fill in. Sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned and the pieces don’t fit where or how we thought. I have had times in my life where I don’t know where the next piece will go. Then, later on when I step back and see the picture, I have that “aha” moment. I can see how God was putting the picture of my life together.

You see, God sees what we can’t – the big picture. His plans and ways are always better than how we think the picture should go. We may not see the full picture on earth; we may have to wait until we get to Heaven and the Lord reveals it to us.

Regardless of how your think your life’s “puzzle” is going, know that God has a plan. He has the solution. We just need to seek and follow Him.

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, so that we may follow all the words of this Law. – Deuteronomy 29:29

Wisdom and might are with Him; Advice and understanding belong to Him. – Job 12:13
