Puzzle

A soul-easing reflection for those hard times.

View Transcript
Close your eyes and imagine you're standing in a large open space. Laid out in front of you are thousands of pieces of an enormous jigsaw puzzle. A few edges are complete, but most of the pieces are still a jumble. This puzzle is your life. Imagine yourself picking up the brightest piece and examining it. What is this bright moment in your life? How did this moment feel at the time? Now, imagine yourself picking up a dismal gray puzzle piece. What is this ugly moment in your life? How did it feel at the time? Hold these two pieces in your hand. Now imagine that the puzzle has begun to assemble itself. The edges fill in, then a few middle sections, and soon the puzzle's design comes into full view. It's the most stunning image you've ever seen, but there are two pieces missing. The bright piece and the great piece in your hand. At this moment, is either of these pieces more important than the other? And now ask yourself, how did that gray dismal piece become part of such a beautiful life? Finally, reach to God with thanks for every moment that's passed and every moment yet to come.
