The Puzzle

The Puzzle dan skognes leadership development trainer coach consultant motivation blogger speaker

My Mother-in-law used to love jigsaw puzzles.  The more pieces the better.  She loved finding the right pieces and putting them together to make the picture complete.  My wife would buy her the hardest ones she could find just to make it a challenge.

The one thing that would drive my Mother-in-law crazy was when a piece or pieces were missing. Can you imagine the frustration of putting a whole puzzle together and not have the final pieces there to complete it?

That is what our lives look like without God.  When you are missing that piece, the picture is incomplete.  Nothing is going to fix that except having God in the picture.  We have a thousand pieces that go into the puzzle, family, friends, work, hobbies, travel, etc., etc.  They make up part of the picture.  Then we have our character, our morals, our beliefs.  They make part of the picture as well.

But isn’t if funny that we can have all of that in place and still not be complete?  God designed us that way.  We were put together like a master jig-saw puzzle.  In fact, we are the Master’s jig-saw puzzle.  Since He designed us and made us, He intends to be part of the picture.  Make sense?

So if you are puzzled at your life and how fragmented it is, check out the missing piece.  God fits perfectly into the picture, and you will see that it makes you look a lot like Jesus.
