Ever done a puzzle that just made you go mad?
I still remember how my dad and I fixed up a 1000 piece puzzle. It’s what you see first when you visit us at home. That experience taught me a lot of lessons about life. It taught me that every piece has four edges( except for the edge pieces, but then, that’s beside the point).
Sometimes we look at life looking at the one piece only. Some of us are smart enough to try and look at the edges, but the farthest we go is the one piece next to it. But sometimes we find a piece in solitary, without a match.
The whole picture of life is something man has always searched for. They did find many pieces along the way that many of us never noticed and it made them great. But the truth is only God knows the whole picture of each life because the last pieces of the puzzle may be put in only after our lives on this earth are over. Our lives create an influence on this world and it affects the lives of the generations after us. This also reminds us how important our lives are. We have only one life to live. Live it well.
So, leave it to God, trust in him and ask him for guidance.
We sometimes get depressed when we fall. Remember there are four edges to every piece. God may be leading you through that situation to make you stronger or to make somebody else stronger.
The fascinating part of the puzzle of life is that you don’t have to always figure out each piece. They always fall into place.
So when you feel like you’ve lost it in life, look up at the sky and tell yourself,
“The puzzle is not complete. There is always a beautiful picture in the end. God made it to be like that.”
The one part you can influence is what your picture will be able to tell others.
Will it inspire?
Will it guide?
Think about it. In my post ‘Elementary, dear Watson’, I implied how each man makes a tremendous difference in this world.
The whole world and the people in it is in fact is a puzzle consisting of many puzzles. Each of our lives. We all have a part in the huge picture.
Know that your life matters. Know that no matter how many times you fall apart, there are always four edges to every piece.
