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. For everything in this journey of life, we are presented with a choice as to choose to do right or get off track and do wrong. Life's journey begins at the instant we open our eyes in the delivery room. Our parent leads and guides us step by step through life's mission to complete one section of the puzzle toward adolescence; then we start another segment of the puzzle expecting to finish it but to no avail. In our life puzzle, we begin another part when we reach adulthood; we are set to take control and start to travel our own path and put the puzzle pieces together one at a time.

People may make plans in their minds, but one of life's most excellent adventures starts when God changes the direction and establish our step. Proverbs 16:9 (KJV) A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps. 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 tough to figure out where to place the pieces. Usually, this makes us shuffle and reshuffle those puzzles to get a proper answer.

By continuously looking to and reading the Bible, we put those mystery puzzles pieces in the right places, and the end gets a response to each of those which appeared to be a piece of the puzzle to different aspects of life. Until you understand what God is doing in your life and how you fit into bringing about His purpose, the puzzle pieces cannot be put together. Although life’s mystery starts when we start living our lives after the first piece of the puzzle is put in place, and the puzzle pieces are sorted by colors. However, After working on different sections of the puzzle and unable to find all the parts 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 piece of the puzzles trying to make them 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. 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 religious reference to regulate the direction to build upon still bear in our mind everything is a pile of scattered jigsaw puzzle pieces.

The Diverse phases of life create lots of pieces to the puzzles. Each part of life’s mystery 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 roadmap for growth and real and lasting life.

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 puzzle pieces will fit together. If we look to the Bible, we will find the missing peace, we are so in search of, and the puzzle piece will fit together. Moreover, submission, accept 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.

When we fail to structure our lives according to the Bible, we are living our lives in an attempt to put together puzzle pieces that will not fit in the proper place. Also, we have only been 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, nearly a disaster.

These “almost” present margin of in need — how God’s protection is 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.

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