A few weeks ago, my sister and I were piecing a puzzle together. It was a 400-piece jigsaw puzzle, so it was a bit challenging. Pieces fit into place, and others did not. Some were missing and there were gaps in the puzzle. But, when all of the pieces came together, they made a beautiful picture.
I haven’t the slightest clue as to where I fit.
I get scared when I can’t see the path ahead of me. I get frustrated when I can make the piece fit or I can’t see the full picture.
I have to remind myself to be patient. I have to remind myself to trust in God’s plan for me.
Years ago, God came to a man named Abraham He told him to move his family, lead them to a land that he had never even been to.
Can you imagine? One day God calls you up, “Hey! Yeah, you’re going to need to come with me to a place you’ve never been to. Oh, and you are going to be leading a bunch of other people with you and they are going to be super whiny!”I don’t know about you, but that sounds like something that I would worry about!
But, Abram went anyway. He trusted in God. He knew that God’s plan would be greater than his.
Later, God promised Abraham that he would be a father, with offspring as numerous as the stars! I must mention that both Abe and his wife Sarah were up there in age. They were shocked and couldn’t believe that this would happen to them! They doubted that they would be parents.
But, as always, God prevailed. (God NEVER Fades!). Abraham just needed to trust in God. He was too worried that God wasn’t going to follow through with him. God doesn’t abandon you though.
Like Abraham, God has a plan for you.
God knows the plans that He has for you and I. He knows the perfect place that you will fit in, just like a puzzle piece in a puzzle. God will place you in your place, if you only wait for his perfect timing. I try to think of it as a test. God is testing me, trying to see if I will be patient enough for Him to make my crooked paths straight. After all, you can’t fit a puzzle piece in a place that doesn’t fit. Let God show you where you fit in perfectly!
