But one thing's clear.
We are each an important piece of a grand puzzle, interlocked with countless other lives. None of knows quite how we fit in or exactly how we'll look when this is all over. As time goes on, we may catch a glimpse of the picture. Only God knows for sure.
We are His masterpiece...His magnum opus.
And if we'll trust Him, and go where He tells us...or trust Him, and wait...
He'll make something beautiful.
Right now things may look like just a jumbled up mess of shapes and colors. Circumstances don't make sense; the people we have in our lives don't always make sense. But we fit into their picture, and they in ours.
And the final scene will be more beautiful than we can ever imagine.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Lord, help us to go where You tell us and do what You've designed us to do. Help us to wait when You want us to wait. Help us to trust You through all our trials. Help us to love the people You've put in our lives.
Help us to put our faith in You more and more each day, knowing that You are not a God Who doesn't care. You love us and You're actively involved in our lives with good and godly purposes in mind.
You are our Master. Do with us what You will.
In Jesus' Name,
