What is your strategy to put together a puzzle? Kandra loves puzzles! When space and time allow, she frequently works on a puzzle. She works in the typical fashion for doing puzzles, corners, edges, separate the colors and patterns, work from the easiest to hardest.
Sometimes, she does something unusual. When the puzzle is nearing completion, she will sneak a piece of the puzzle into her pocket. Then, when only one piece of the puzzle is lacking, Kandra slyly pulls it out and puts it in! The most important piece of the puzzle is the missing one!
What does that have to do with anything? Everyone wishes they could be the symbolic corner edge piece. Typically, these are the first on the list to find. Second, to be sought out are those with unusual lines or colors which are easily matched. No one wants to be in the hard-to-match pile!
Yet, when the puzzle is complete, each piece is equally important. If a piece is taken away, that is the one that gets noticed, not the others!
For a long time, I wanted to be different than who God made me. I wanted to have a more outgoing personality, be more extroverted, or try to be someone else. Much later in life than I should have, I learned that God created me to be just the way I am. I must be the piece of the puzzle that God created me to be!
