~Object 45~ A Puzzle

The whole picture is unseen.  The pieces blend together and seem confusing.  We don't know what it will turn out to be in the end.

Bit by bit the edges fit together, outlining the puzzle.  Slowly, one piece after another, the picture starts taking shape; a beautiful masterpiece.

Puzzles take time, and they can be frustrating.  We try fifty pieces before we find one that fits, but when it does it is almost seamless.

Life is a puzzle, and we don't have the box.  We try things and they don't fit, and that is when you have a choice.  You can throw the pieces off the table and give up, complaining that it's too hard, it isn't working, you've already tried for a long time, the future is too uncertain.  Or, you can patiently try another piece, and then another.

God has the box; He has painted your picture.  He is the Master Artist Who knows all.  Trust Him with the fragments of your life, and the pieces of your masterpiece will fit together seamlessly.

But you must first trust.
