In church this morning the man who gave the communion meditation had a song played that was about our lives being like a puzzle. I do not know the name of the song or who sang it, but it spoke volumes to me and got me thinking.
Our lives indeed are like a puzzle. We can’t see what the finished puzzle looks like because we don’t know what will happen between now and the time our puzzle is completed. All too often we try to take control of putting our puzzle together and end up cramming pieces of our puzzle together, trying to make them fit, even when they weren’t meant to. We mess our puzzle up completely – it doesn’t fit together seamlessly and the picture doesn’t look right.
However, if we let God take over and put our puzzle together, things will fit together and become more beautiful with each piece. At the end of our lives our puzzle will be complete and will be something beautiful for those who love us to remember.
