When I consider the pieces that make up my life I am astounded. You never would have thought that piece could fit but it did and perfectly so. Our lives are so complex, we control so many of the moves yet God says all our days are written in his book. Psalm 139.
How can this be? I think what makes it work is Romans 8:28 all things work together for good to them that love God and are called according to His purpose.
This is only just the tip, and the beginning of understanding the ways of a complex yet simple God and his ways.
Last year I added some pieces that were very hard indeed, I thought they would spoil the overall picture for sure but now I can see how the shadow section highlights the brightness around it.
It’s a big puzzle and it’s going to take a lifetime to complete. Some of it is a real hard slog and some of it is thrilling to watch slot into place.
What the picture will reveal in the end is more of God than me, a tribute to His grace, strength, power and love that saw me through my life to the end.
