Journey Through Wellness - Life is a Puzzle
Originally posted on Journey Towards Wellness.
Life is like that puzzle.
It is full of delights, surprises, struggles, disjointed parts, empty gaps, lost pieces and things that don’t belong. Sometimes our lives fall apart and need to be reconstructed. Sometimes our lives become mixed up with the lives of others, and we can’t be sure where our life ends and their life begins. Sometimes we may mistakenly think we need things that are part of someone else’s life when we really don’t. We try to fill in the gaps of our lives or make connections. Sometimes we can put our lives together ourselves and other times we need help. Sometimes we try the wrong thing, and, more often than we want, we have to go back and start again. Living takes lots of perseverance and patience. When we get tired or discouraged, that is when we most need God incarnate in our loved ones. My life was like that puzzle. I couldn’t find a church and wondered if I was supposed to be a minister. My dreams and hopes were gone and my life was broken apart into pieces. I wasn’t sure how to put it together or if I’d be able to do it. Fortunately, I had friends and family who stood by me.
