Puzzle Pieces

Have you ever heard someone compare life to a puzzle?

Each person is like a puzzle piece. We all run around trying to figure out where we fit. But we, as tiny human beings, can't see or comprehend the big picture. It's like trying to understand the entire universe - we're just not big enough; we don't have that kind of mental capacity.

So if we can't see the big picture, how on Earth are we supposed to find where we fit?? If we can only see a couple of pieces at a time, how would we know if we fit in that place or if we need to move to a different part of the puzzle? What if we are in the right place and we can't tell because there aren't enough pieces around us?

Think of putting a puzzle together. If you get all the edge pieces connected, can you guess where that one middle piece goes? Maybe. Now zoom in to where you can't see any of the edge pieces. Pretty much impossible to get that one little piece in the right spot when you have no reference points.

Oh, if only we had the picture on the box to look at....! But didn't we just establish that we're too small to understand that picture?

Guess what? Life is like a puzzle, and only God can see the picture on the box. Oh thank goodness. If He can see the box, His perfect master plan, then we can rely on His guidance to get us to the right place in the puzzle of life.

  1. I love this! Absolutely love this! Truly, so cool analogy. Even with Heavenly Father's plan, sometimes it still feels like I'm running in circles. I just need to trust his hand. But just imagine the people who don't know who God is or his plan, it must be awful for them!

    1. Feeling like you're running in circles is the worst. I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to learn about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints :) cuz now I feel like I have a purpose :)

    2. Haha, I guess you don't have to imagine, because you were once there. I am so grateful for the church. Just because I've grown up a member doesn't mean I've grown up always listening, learning, and following. The testimony I carry now is growing every day. I'm so grateful not to have to run in circles anymore

  2. Wonderful analogy, Marie-Rose! I love this! It is so comforting to know that Heavenly Father sees the whole picture.


  3. I love this! I can't even count the times that I have worried myself silly about something, and then was able to step back and realize that God is in charge, and that He will make everything okay in the end.

    You are so great!
