The Puzzle of Life

Life is in some ways like a puzzle. Every piece is made to fit in a particular place. The pieces of the puzzle are not to be forced into the wrong place. Sadly, some people try to make themselves fit in the wrong place. Rest assured that God has a place for you. Ask God to put you in your special place. Trust God to put you there in His time.

Joy comes as you discover your place . Don't try to force your way into the wrong place. It is constant discomfort. When you don't fit, you know it. God has made you for a certain time and place. Ask God to direct you to your place. That place is God's will for your life.

Being out of place is being out of God's will. Trying to force it to work will never work. Peace and joy comes as you know your place in life. You know in your heart. That's where you belong.

If you are not there yet, you will be. Submit to God. He knows the way for you. "He leads the humble in what is right, teaching them his way" (Psalm 25:9).

God has a special place for you. It may not always be an easy place. There may be challenges where God wants you. Don't look for the place by outward circumstances. There's a better way. Follow the peace of God in your heart. "And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts" (Colossians 3:15).
