Jigsaw puzzle of life
You have hopes and dreams that shape the vision for your life. You also have detours and disappointments in your life that defy that vision. You work hard to wrap your mind around the information you have, but the brokenness of unfulfilled dreams is like a mental jigsaw puzzle.
You place the pieces the way you think they should fit. Even if the pieces don’t fit, you try to make them fit, or look for another piece that will. You hope the puzzle will come together, but it seems to continue in cycle of brokenness.
God operates in wholeness
The wholeness that God creates is actually from the broken pieces in you life. He takes the pieces of your life that seemed pointless, confusing, and even hurtful, and makes something whole out of them.
So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives. (Romans 8:28, TPT)
Perhaps you have become frustrated with your lack of understanding. You have attempted several times to receive some kind of clarification. You read the Bible, but the information also seems like a jigsaw puzzle that you have a difficult time putting the pieces together.
The secret is simple: ask the Holy Spirit to show you
Information is the depositing of facts into your mind. Revelation is the impartation of truth into your spirit. Information informs. Revelation transforms. The Holy Spirit doesn’t just give you information; He gives revelation and leads you into all truth.
This is why God wants you to trust Him. You may not think He really knows your desires, but this is far from the truth! He knows what you want and like better than you do—He created you. And He knows what you need to fulfill the very reason He created you for. He will bring this kind of wholeness to your life by putting all the pieces together!
