When Life is a Puzzle

"When we can't piece together the puzzle of our own lives, remember the best view of a puzzle is from above. Let Him help put you together." ~Amethyst Snow-Rivers

When worries weigh me down, I have to remember that there is someone who knows the way through this maze we call life and has a plan for each of us. I must rely on His view and His ability to put [and keep] me together.

Isaiah's writings are such a mystery most of the time but this couldn't be more clear:

"Hast thou not known? Has thou not heard that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait up on the Lord shall renew their sterength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary: and they shall walk and not faint." [Isaiah 40:28-30]

I love the idea that when we're in the mucky muck it's hard to see the big picture. Things will always work out.

life seems to always be a puzzle doesn't it? sometimes life hands us an easier 24 piece and sometimes we get one of those crazy 1000 piecers. i prefer the toddler wooden puzzles myself:) right now we are dealing with a 500 piece puzzle. aye.

What a wonderful quote. It is so comforting to know there is someone directing us through life and we don't have to face it alone. It is so scary to face the unknown. But as you said we are led down the right path, although there are bumps and detours along the way.

Good advice. I hope everything "puzzling" you at the moment is resolved quickly.
