Do you think that God paints a portrait of our lives and lays it out for us to see? Or does
he lay it down one piece at a time, like a jigsaw puzzle. I recall that I asked God why he
took me through 5 years of schooling in my late 50’s and 10 years of conducting a
counseling practice only to have it fail. He told me because He was still working on me.
Some puzzle pieces just don’t look right as you stare at them close up. Trust God, it will
be a beautiful picture when it is all finished.
