Look below and what do you see?

Doesnt look like much does it? Isolated by itself it just looks like a black jigsaw piece which isnt very beautiful at all. Now look at  the picture below

Now when we look at the bigger picture, we can see how when that piece is put in the bottom right hand corner and placed with other pieces, it becomes a beautiful picture. Sometimes when we are going through various trials, at the time, we cant see where God is but we have to trust that God sees the bigger picture and our ‘trial jigsaw piece’ is part of a beautiful picture that he is painting. To see this in action, please watch the Josiah Grauman story. I hope it encourages you

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4)

    OK, I needed this today.
    Just when I just finished blogging on hating where I am right now, where I wish I was and how I should’ve gotten there.
    Ugh!!! Duly noted God….
