One Step at a Time, Together


Exodus 15:26, "He said, 'If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you.'"


Imagine you're assembling a complex jigsaw puzzle. At first glance, the multitude of pieces can be overwhelming, and determining where each fits is a daunting task. Yet a beautiful picture emerges when each piece finds its perfect place.

Life often presents situations that can feel like scattered puzzle pieces—disjointed and perplexing. It's tempting to force pieces together, hoping to find any appearance of order quickly. However, letting God guide our choices is like having the puzzle's creator sitting beside us. He knows the bigger picture and where every piece belongs. By trusting him daily, even when the design isn't immediately clear, we can be confident that a beautiful masterpiece is in the making. When placed in his hands, each decision and every moment contribute to his great plan for our lives.  


Challenge yourself to approach each day as another puzzle piece. Seek God's wisdom to understand how today's piece fits the broader picture. Spend moments in quiet reflection, allowing his Word to illuminate the way. Recognize instances where you felt his guidance and create a journal of these moments, celebrating the evolving masterpiece of your life under his direction.


Father, I acknowledge the complexities of life and the moments I feel lost among its pieces. I trust you, the creator of my life's puzzle, to guide every move. Help me to see the beauty in the process, trusting that you're crafting a purposeful masterpiece. In Jesus' name. Amen.
