No matter your past, your present, or your future, when you are a follower of Jesus, God is working all things together for your good. He means for you to be conformed to the image of Christ, which is your ultimate good, and so He ordains that each piece of the life you’ve lived, and of the life you’ll yet live, will, in the end, fit as a perfect part of His love-encompassed plan for you.
Pieces painted by happiness, as well as those molded by sorrow, are needed for your life’s mosaic.
Each piece required. All for your good. All from Love.
We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. For those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers…What then are we to say about these things?…Who can separate us from the love of Christ?
…I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!
Never separated. No piece allowed to go missing. Each piece designed, and cut out, and fitted together for this final purpose:
The puzzle pieces reveal Love.
