You've Got to Love It When Things Come Together

Have you ever worked on putting a giant jigsaw puzzle together? I mean the ones that have a thousand pieces? There's something about linking together all the edges and then filling in the middle. Sooner or later you there's only a few pieces left before your puzzle is completed. And then you do it. You place the last piece in the puzzle and this complex picture that has challenged you immensely is now complete. There's something about seeing the puzzle come together. You may not even see the complete picture yet but as you put puzzle pieces together, the excitement builds. It's the same way with life and what I've been experiencing lately. It's so exciting when things start coming together. When pieces to the puzzle begin falling into place. And yes, even with life, you may not be able to see the whole picture, yet when you begin seeing pieces of it, it energizes you. Proverbs 16:9 tells us, "We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps." What peace that should bring us, knowing it's the Lord who determines our steps. As the puzzle of life is put together, you may not see the completed puzzle yet but only bits and pieces. However, there is someone who sees the completed puzzle, and He's the Lord. And as His plans come together, there's nothing quite like it :)
