If you had come into my office back in the days when I was working with WIC, you would like have seen piles of papers , folders, binders and files all over my desk. There might have been post it notes stuck on some of the piles, along with a few tacked to the front of my computer screen. A book or binder may have been lying open on one corner of the desk.
To you it seemed random and unrelated. It might even look like one big mess.
But to me it all made sense.
I could see the bigger picture. I knew my plan, and everything was there for a reason to help get a goal accomplished.
It’s like that with life also.
When we look at life, it may seem like a long string of random events. Some may seem like they are related - one leading to the other. But much of it just seems like those piles of papers on my desk - a scattering of stories, events, and memories. And some of it just seems like a total mess
To God, it all makes sense.
He has a plan. Like a puzzle. Each piece fitting together to create the bigger picture.
All of the highs and lows. The good times and not so good. Yes, even the messes. God takes all of them and fits them together to reach His eternal goal.
