Missing pieces to the puzzle

Ever notice how things somehow just don’t make any sense at all? When something happens and you go “What was that about” and then 2 years later there is clarity and the jig saw puzzle fits perfectly together but only because that something happened.

We can never be certain about why things happen when they happen. We just have to trust that there is a reason for it all. So many times in my life I have questioned “Why me?” and not received an answer only to find the answer way down the road upon reflection. As a teenager I wondered why my mom’s tennis buddy asked for me to babysit and clean her house instead of my sister, who had a driver’s license at that time and was older and ready to work. I worked for her for 8 years. She taught me how to raise children, keep a house and most importantly how to speak out loud to others about my faith. That is why she asked for me, because I was being set upon this path. She chose me because God chose me.

There will be many times in life that we doubt and cannot understand life. We just have to do what God calls us to do and continue on with faith that we will understand later in life why it all happened. We have to trust in God and follow Him and we will be lead closer to Him which will reveal complete understanding to each of us.

“At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face.

At present I know partially; then I shall know fully as I am fully known. “

 – 1 Corinthians 13: 12
