For over a year now, I’ve purposely kept one puzzle piece laying in my car, next to my gearshift. Every time I drive somewhere, I see it and I’m reminded, “It’s only one piece in the puzzle.” At times, one certainly doesn’t understand life’s circumstances or reasoning. One may think it’s unreasonable of God to withhold the full picture from view. We can speculate and assume we see the full picture, to no avail. I’ve learned, more times than not...when completed, the picture is absolutely different than the one we ever thought it would be, in fact it turns out much better. I’m thankful, I don’t have to know what tomorrow looks like. I don’t have to figure the future out today. I don’t have to see all the pieces fit together in advance to know that one day it will all come together perfectly. I know who holds my tomorrow and I know He will hold my hand each step of the way. I know God sees the full beautiful picture of each life He creates, while still in our mother’s womb. I do not need to fear, nor be discouraged regardless of what life may look like, currently. I don’t need to try and force pieces to fit that don’t belong. I can put my full trust in the One who knows the beginning to the end. I can trust the One that has a prepared place for me and a perfect plan; A perfect picture. I rest easy in knowing, today, this season, this time...is only one piece of the whole puzzle and picture. Soon all questions will be answered and what doesn’t make sense will all show to be part of the beautiful plan. God has a special way of putting all the pieces together, just right. I’ve learned God's grace is sufficient.
