Life is a Puzzle

The third day of our trip quickly approached, and it was about to come to an end.  I was more confused than ever. 

Do you ever wonder if there is a greater plan and purpose for your life? 

Life is a puzzle.  God seems to unveil only pieces of the puzzle at a time.  How frustrating.  Yet, would I yield to His plans if they were made known to me all at once?  Most of the time He is gracious enough to reveal big changes in my life slowly, over time.  As weary as it was to live with uncertainty, God wanted to teach me to lean on Him, to trust Him.  I could truly say that in all my past experiences and adventures with God, He had always been trustworthy, so much so, that I had no reason to doubt Him.  I know I can put my life in His care, I quietly reminded my heavy heart. 

Now calm my soul. 

Rest assured within the hands of your Creator.

Wait on Him with complete assurance that He will speak when it is time.  In his perfect time.

Isn’t it during the times that we have to wait on Him that we draw the closest to Him?

Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:14

I wondered, when God answers “Wait” to a prayer, is He really just saying, “Trust me”?

And so I yielded.  “Okay, I will trust you, God, until I forget to which will probably be in ten minutes.  Then please remind me again.....and again....and again....and…..because I am not sure if I will ever get this trusting thing.  Amen.” 

A part of our life's puzzle would be pieced together by the end of this trip.  Little did we know, an appointment had been set for us.  It would be a brief encounter with two complete strangers, and it would make an impression upon us and our future.


  1. Um, cliffhanger?!? Really?! I can't wait to find out what's next in the Saga...

  2. Yep, I get the ten minute surrender. I just did this exact thing yesterday!

  3. Will any of us ever get this whole trusting thing?
