Fit the puzzle
Have you ever tried to force a puzzle piece into a picture and it didn’t fit? “But it should fit,” you say, “because the color is right.” And then: “There is too much blue sky for only the few pieces left. There certainly must be a missing piece or one of these must fit!”
And isn’t it a joyous feeling when it does fit and the puzzle is finally put together? We see the perfect picture and are pleased—realizing it was there all the time!
Well, often our problems seem to take forever to find a solution. We may try every which way to get the proper answer and try to force the outcome, which perhaps is not the right fit, or the right solution. Finally, we turn to prayer, listening for God’s direction and find that the right answer was there all the time.
