There are puzzle pieces that just go together. It is a pattern but also a connect time. Let us not forget that we were designed by God to connect and sometimes things just don't go together. Trying to figure things out on own can be difficult. Turning out thoughts over to God and allow him to reconnect at times and guide our lives daily is valuable. The great connect is with God and then others.
Colossians 2:19 New International Version (NIV)
They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.
THOUGHT PATTERN ~
Throughout life, we will find times of being right and times of being wrong. We grow from mistakes and learn from others too. We find God's word remains the same throughout history. He has a love for each of us that grows daily and wants that love returned. Returned through actions, words and turning our will to his will. To be like Jesus, is to be kind, forgiving and all good things. Yet, to realize that the devil is real and goes about to destroy, divide and disconnect lives.
1 Peter 5:8 (NIV)
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV)For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
My thought pattern has changed over the years. I try hard not to question the why of things, but to deal with things. I lean not to my own understanding and I know that God makes a way where there just seems to be no way.
New normals will happen and my joy continue deep in my soul. Making my words good, my thought valuable and ready to speak wisdom when my mouth opens. Yet, I am human and make mistakes. It's nice to know that God connects us and puzzle pieces do go together to make a beautiful picture. In this case, a beautiful life! Hold fast to God's word and continue doing the right thing in life.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
