The Great Puzzle
As I helped my little daughter with the puzzles I realized how much our life is like a puzzle. God, our loving heavenly Father, knows exactly what has and will take place in our lives. He knows every detail and He works out the details for His glory and our good. We just need to look to our Father for a little help to get started on this great puzzle of life. At this point in time our lives feel like a very challenging puzzle. It is nearly time to return to Peru but there are so many details yet to be determined. We have final medical appointments, new medications to try, airline tickets to purchase, and international documents to secure. We know all the pieces are on the table but it is sometimes hard to see how they'll all come together! Each day we're learning that we need to do our part to sort and analyze every piece of life's puzzle. More importantly, we're leaning that we need to stop more often and just look to our Father for a little help along the way.
1 Chronicles 16:11 reminds us, "Seek the Lord and His strength, seek His face continually." Psalm 37:23 tells us, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way." Finally, Proverbs 3:5-6 is a favorite reminder, "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
Yesterday I was once again reminded that I need to constantly look to my heavenly Father for help in this great puzzle of life!
