The Puzzle of Life


Do you love putting puzzles together?

I do. My strategy is do the frame first.

.. this is like setting a foundation ..

.. it matters not your tribe or nation ..

Foundations are essential in the "Life Puzzle" @Farooq Omar 

A wonderful metaphor for life .. a PUZZLE 

In truth .. we ere very much like that .. in PIECES 

Human beings are “broken” 

Our shards are like glass tokens           

Not all fractals are filled with glamour

LIFE comes at us .. a pounding hammer

Each soul .. in due time .. gets battered

At some point .. we fall apart .. scattered  

With hairline fractures or completely shattered

.. life is like that .. this is how we all begin .. 

.. in a spiritual condition .. called sin”

.. eventually the cracks appear .. within

We have broken places. We are in pieces. A puzzle

.. a body

.. a spirit

.. a heart with a mind

.. a soul: mind-will – emotions 

We have this wonderful “treasure in a jar of clay”

.. will we allow The Potter to make us

.. or will the clay argue .. till there is only dust

It takes time & deep searching to understand 

.. the pieces 

.. how they fit 

.. where they fit 

.. to find your purpose

.. to understand the complexity 

.. the puzzle of life .. is often filled with strife 

.. choices & decisions made .. eventually they define us 

.. try not to “rehash blunders” .. but seek how they refine us

.. be in His Light.. this will be a guide .. DARKNESS confines us

.. how do you find the RIGHT piece? .. after you've chosen the wrong

..  who you are .. why you’re here .. what is the destination .. your song?

“In their heart’s humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps.” – Proverbs 16

Earth is bound: everything & everyone is in process

 .. moving mysteries .. make not knowing more complex

.. we grow in understanding or we stand still in ignorance 

.. every step along the way we are putting together our life puzzle

“At last, every one of the bits of the riddle with meet up and the image will be finished.” @Farooq Omar 

I love this about God .. He is the “God of All-Grace” 

.. yet how much time we foolishly waste .. 

.. with all the worthless things we chase .. 

Still His LOVE endures forever .. His kindness is everlasting  

.. even when we mess up (expect it) 

.. even when we make “blunders” (we all do) 

.. even when we do wrong things & our path is crooked                                                                         

Look up .. look within .. be willing .. open your heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3

The Lord makes firm the steps
    of the one who delights in him;
though he may stumble, he will not fall,
    for the Lord upholds him with his hand." – Psalms 37

This Rock is my foundation ..

I will proclaim the name of the Lord.
    Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
    and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
    upright and just is he.” – Deuteronomy 32

As my heart turned to God .. I became a woman of faith .. this is written on my heart

“It is in Christ that you find out who you are & what you are living for. 

Long before we heard of Him .. He had his eye on us .. designs on us for glorious living 

It is part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone.” – Ephesians 1 


Giving honor ..

Thanks Jerry .. 

“the puzzle of life .. is often filled with strife"

“Pestilence” and many perils have ever swept the globe.

I take comfort knowing that "Mother earth .. reports to Father God 

.. even if the mountains fall into the sea 

.. "in Him all things exist” 

.. “in Him we live & move & have our being”

There are many things I do not have answers for 

But I know the ONE who does ..

Our days & times are in His able hands 😇

Fay, “the puzzle of life .. is often filled with strife ” Mother earth seems to have had enough and is taking away all the things we thought were sacrosanct. Droughts, Storms, Floods, and Pestilence are sweeping the globe. This puzzle we must solve…together. And so it goes.
