The Jigsaw Puzzle

When I was younger I loved jigsaw puzzles. As an Enneagram 8, I love the challenge of it. Trying to find the pieces, the colors that coordinate, all the wonderful things that bring it to life including working on it as a team.

I’m finding that life is like a jigsaw puzzle. There are thousands of pieces, and those pieces have all different shapes and colors. It takes a lot of time and patience to put it together. But one thing is for sure all the pieces are there if we just keep believing.

Why is it we have more faith and belief in the puzzle’s manufacturer than we do in ourselves or God? If we believe that every piece of the puzzle is there then why can’t we believe that every piece we need in life is there? We may not find it when we need it but it’s there. We may not see it right away but it’s there.

Patience is a requirement to work the puzzle but it’s also a requirement in life. It will come to you. You will find it when you look for it. Remember keeping your eyes wide open to look for signs is important. We miss so many synchronicities because we are too busy, distracted with stress, and worry.

Allow others to help you with the puzzle we call life. Let them also look for the pieces that you need. God works through everyone, not just the ones that look like you, think like you, and believe like you. Dismiss that you are the smartest one in the room and let others guide you. And never give up because all the pieces are there if you just believe.
