I am not a big puzzle fan. I like them, but lack the attention span to work a large one. I like things to be done now. Working a puzzle so large that it takes days or weeks is excruciating to me. I like having all the pieces in place as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, I can be that way in every other part of my life. So often, I find myself saying, “God, if I just understood what Your plan is, then it would be easier to do what You’re asking.” or “If I just had the missing pieces, I could figure this whole thing out!” Fortunately, our God is a loving Father Who understands His impatient daughter. And He reminds me that He is in control and that He has it all worked out and if I knew what the finished product was supposed to look like, I’d spend all my time trying to do it myself. Which is completely opposite of what He wants from us.
So, tonight, I encourage you to have faith. Trust in God. To “let go and let God.” (Yes, I know that by now it has become a tired cliché, but it’s still so very true.)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Be blessed and tell someone that you love them!
