Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing.Some eat, smoke, drink or use drugs when stress, I write.

As we begin life journey, there are so many different paths we have to travel. Although in their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their step, Proverbs 16:9 (NIV) So it is best we start planning accordingly on which particular path to follow to gain instant success. Moreover, various aspects of life often appear to be so many puzzle pieces to us and in life puzzle pieces it can be very hard to figure out where to place the pieces. Often this makes us shuffle and reshuffle those puzzles to get a proper answer.

By continuous looking to and reading the Bible, we put those mysteries puzzles pieces in the right places and in the end get a response to each of those which appeared to be a puzzle at one point of life. Although life’s mystery starts when we start building our lives after the first piece of the puzzle is put in place, and the puzzle pieces are sort of colors. However, After working on different sections of the puzzle and can’t find the piece to complete that particular section that means we are building our lives without that sure foundation of Jesus as the keystone. We can spend hours and hours of shuffle and rearrange the pieces trying to fit, but it can only be very frustrating. After rearranging the pieces finally, the pieces start to fall into place. The pieces fall into place when we structure our life according to the word of God, and His guide to the way of salvation.

When life resemble piles of Puzzles pieces

Sometimes we envision the "picture" of our life as puzzle pieces and wonder what in the world is happening. In other words, we try to make everything fit into our life as easy as putting together a lot of jigsaw puzzles pieces. Just imagine if only life was that simple, but it not; life as we see it is like a pile of scattered jigsaw puzzle pieces. Although we know God, have laid stone upon the stone with a spiritual reference to regulate the direction to build upon still in our mind everything is a pile of scattered jigsaw puzzle pieces.

The Diverse phases of life create lots of puzzles in life. Each part of life’s puzzle represents life’s experience: loss of the first tooth, the first day of school, graduation, first job, first true love, first born, first car, first new home, and the day we commit to God, first vacation, etc. We go on adding mysteries and puzzle pieces to each day of our lives. We gather the pieces of the puzzle to live each day of life; it is not easy to see how to fit each piece together. Some people start their life puzzle pieces by doing the outside pieces. Then, some begin in the middle; some start from the bottom and the other starts from the top while some start with the edges. Me I just take one piece at a time. I learn patient is a virtue, and life experience is a guide to adulthood and a new way of life. Also, it is a road map toward growth and a real and lasting life.

Life's Puzzle Pieces

When we fail to structure our life according to God’s plan we are living our life with an attempt to put together puzzles pieces that will not fit in the proper place. In additional, we are only establishing the basic outline of our life and then fill in the details along the way with the tendency to view them as "edge" pieces in our "life puzzle." However, when we choose to obey God, God’s word is that one, a rare and unique piece of the puzzle that everybody needs to complete the puzzle. Imagine this common sense scenario of almost disaster; I witness my best friend almost back into another car because she was not paying attention. I remember thinking how blessed she was that life is often full of “almost”—almost collisions, almost death, almost disaster.

These “almost” present margin of in need—how God’s protection are necessary over those who do things without paying attention or thinking about life’s consequences. A similar scenario applies to children growing up as a child they need parental guidance but when they disobey parents that the pieces of the puzzles that seem to get away lost that need parent help to be found. The bible and the word of God are the precious piece of the puzzle that we can gather to use as pieces of the puzzle as a journey by placing each piece of the puzzle together, which can become good memories to the final piece of the puzzle to a lifelong masterpiece.

Life is like a jigsaw puzzle look to the Bible for the missing peace, when we let go, surrender, accept God’s help and His word all the puzzles pieces will fit together. If we look to the Bible, we will find the missing peace we are so in search of and the puzzles piece will fit together. Moreover, submission, take God’s word, and you will be able to complete the puzzle. The last few pieces are quite simple, they fall into place quite effortlessly, and you start flourishing in life. Your life tends to get more meaningful once you start solving the mysteries, and we let go, surrender to God that complete the last few pieces to the puzzles and you find the missing peace.

Do you agree, Life is like a Jigsaw Puzzle Which Can Only Fit Together by Walking on the Path Laid Out by God?
