Pieces of a puzzle are scattered about a living room floor. It's not a jumbo puzzle made up of a few pieces. Those are fairly easy to put together. No, the puzzle is made up of a thousand smaller pieces. They're made up of a variety of colors and a different cut here, a jagged edge there. It's not so easy to put together as a puzzle consisting of a few large pieces. Now, just how do all of the pieces come together?

Life is like a puzzle. We experience situations that we don't always understand. At times we can make sense of things, but other times we just can't seem to understand what happened, why it happened, or why it happened to us. It's like a puzzle that hasn't come together just yet. The picture isn't clear. Every experience, situation, or event is a puzzle piece that slowly fits with one another to make a complete puzzle. 

Whatever you're going through right now might not make sense to you. The puzzle piece doesn't fit. It's out of place with the other pieces. We want to see the complete picture. We want to see how it all works out in the end. The Lord knows all things. He knows how all of the pieces fit and when they all come together. Just like working a thousand piece puzzle can be a tedious, it can take some time for the pieces to come together in your life. One day they will fit together, create a complete picture, and it will all make sense to you.

Trust the process. Trust the Lord.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5

Be blessed.
