“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways.” This is the Lord’s declaration. 9 “For as heaven is higher than earth,
so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
Hopie and I have worked a few puzzles together over the years and I have to tell you, I love seeing how everything comes together. I especially love the big, complicated ones with thousands of pieces. Occasionally, we get toward completion and realize a piece is missing. Panic ensues because we have invested so much time and energy into this masterpiece and it’s not coming together! We know how it’s supposed to look in the end but what we have before us doesn’t look anything like the picture on the box. Thankfully, the piece was just wedged between the couch cushion and everything fit just as it should.
Life can seem like a puzzle, mixed up with big gaps of missing pieces. Many times, we wish the puzzle of our lives would all come together at once in our timeline of things. It’s easy to focus only on bits and pieces and fail to look toward the end result. Often, things don’t seem to come together and the gaps in the picture lead to confusion. Gradually, depression and anxiety creep in and steal away our joy and peace.
Thanks be to God that He holds all the pieces and will put them into place at His perfect time. He will make a beautiful picture out of even the messiest of circumstances. His thoughts and ways are so much greater than ours. His plan and purpose are much higher than anything you and I can comprehend. We have hope that one day He will slip that last piece into place and the picture of life will be complete. With God, there are no missing pieces!
In Christ,
