When The Puzzle Fits

Updated on August 27, 2017

When The Puzzle Fits

When I use to go to visit my sweet precious mother, a lot of the time I would find her in her room working on a puzzle. During the visit I would set there with her trying to help her find the pieces of the puzzle.

What a challenge it is when there are so many tiny pieces that look alike and so many shapes and sizes its amazing. As I visit with her helping her she gladly shows me the already finished puzzles that she already worked on and is already pasted and put there as a picture.

Watching her satisfaction in completing her task and sharing it with me, the beautiful finished outcome, is very gratifying to see her so content.Life is kind of like that. It is like a puzzle meaning to solve by, careful study or effort. There are so many pieces, shapes and sizes that are found as we journey through life itself. Sometimes it comes with disappointments, sadness and questions that we don't always have the answer to.

There are to many pieces in our life that we still don't know where they go.

To fit: is to be adapted to or suitable for a (purpose, object, occasion etc. Prepared or ready for.

My mother started this puzzle knowing very well that it would be a challenge. Instead of concentrating on the challenge, she already saw the finished picture of the puzzle.God is that way with us.

He already see's the finished picture. THE WHOLE PICTURE! He doesn't see our shortcomings, or where we sometimes fail. He see's the finished task of His creation, His child the apple of His eye.

God Has A Plan

He already has the pieces of the puzzle put together

It is up to us to stop trying to figure things out and trying to make the pieces fit together when they don't belong there in the first place.Since we already know that God has a plan then when temptations, disappointments and trials come our way it is up to us to trust God with the WHOLE finished picture. Knowing very well that He already has the pieces of our life put together.

Romans 8:28 "

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"God sent His Holy Spirit the comforter to help us in our time of need.

John 14:26 "

But the comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name. He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you". 27 " Peace I leave you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you, let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid".

Not only does God have the WHOLE picture He has provided a way for us to get through these challenges that life sometimes brings us. He has also giving us His Holy Spirit to lead and guide us along the path of this journey called life. So when ever you get discouraged or dismayed and you want to finish with the pieces of the puzzle of life, remember that God already has the pieces put together. He see's the WHOLE picture. Therefore we need to just trust Him always with the finished touch. After all we are the apple of His eye. He knows our beginning and our ending He knows what is to come. Glory to God, He knows all things.

2 Corinthians 5:5 :

Now it is God who has made us for His purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit guaranteeing what is to come.

ONEchurch ~ The Puzzle

When The Puzzle Fits: - Our life is in His hands

That is because God made it to fit by creating it in the first place, the puzzle of our life should be in His hands; so let it.Heavenly Father you are the creator of life you have a plan and you see the WHOLE picture help us to trust you with it and to believe and have faith that the end result is beautifully put together and completed according to your purpose. Give us the strength to let go and allow you to work in our life's, putting those pieces where they should go. This I pray in your Son Jesus name. Amen!

My precious mother - In loving memory of her

I dedicate this message to my mother Virginia who was a great example of actually being a woman who walked the talk, she was my rock, advisor and support. I really do miss her!

A pillar of strength you were, even to the end-fighting life's battle, knowing that God, His strength will be sent.

Even in your darkest hour, you tried to comfort me, and because of my whining and complaining, I couldn't see that in just a few hours, you'd be gone from this earth, in the arms of Jesus, starting a new life, a rebirth.

You have always been there for us through the thick and the thin, letting us know all is well and with Jesus we'd win!

Mom, throughout your life, you did many good deeds. Constantly thinking of everybody else's needs.

The sun will still shine, but the rain is like teardrops for us left behind.

I find relief in knowing I will see you again some day soon. It could be today, tonight. or tomorrow at noon. Yesterday, today and forever, my whole life through, I will always love and cherish you.

I can only imagine the joy and the peace that overtook you that day, when you looked at our Lord, not knowing what to say. I'm sure He laughed and said, " My daughter, come in come in" as he led you away to your lovely mansion. And in it were waiting our dad and our brothers, the reunion so sweet for you our dear mother. It makes me happy to know your rest is complete, and that now and forever you'll sit at His feet. (Jesus)

      What a great analogy! I agree with you about just letting God take over the challenges, and work on being a part of His plan, ready to follow His Divine plan He has for us! You have some of my favorite Bible verses listed! God bless you ~ Thanks for the inspirational thoughts, Lorlinda! B : )
