Eventually all the pieces fall into place

“Eventually all the pieces fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason….”   -unknown

For anyone who is currently going through a time of uncertainty, or working hard to make something happen, or trying to figure things out…so pretty much all of us…this quote says it perfectly. No matter how hard things seem in this moment, the fact is that things really are going to work out. Maybe not in the way you think, or not in the way you want them to…but they WILL work out exactly how they should so long as you are putting in full effort and trying your best to do things the right way.

Our problem is that we are always coming from a limited set of facts. Because we aren’t God we don’t have all the data about everything. And the picture we might have in our head that seems amazing to us might actually be a child’s sketch compared to the amazing masterpiece that God has in store for us.

I truly believe that everything will work out in the end if we just do our best. But we have to trust God and we have to be willing to accept that some of areas of uncertainty might just be for our best good. When things get hard instead of asking “Why is this happening to me?” we should ask “What can I learn from this to help me?”  It may seem like a simple change in the question but it actually a massive shift in our thinking. It allows us to acknowledge that we trust God and that we believe that things are happening for our good and taking us to the exact place he wants us to be…it shows we believe that everything happens for a reason that will be to our benefit in the end…

Have faith…and don’t forget to laugh at the confusion and live for the moment.

    As I am sitting at my desk, overwhelmed by decisions I am making to change jobs and wondering if I’m doing the right things…wanting to run far, far away…your blog pops up in my in box….”eventually all the pieces fall into place”. Perfect words for my imperfect life. Thank you for the message that I so desperately needed….

    That’s really true. God must have a high tolerance for messes because he sent all of us “hopelessly human” mortals to try to sort things out! I think He also has a great deal of faith in us, and in HIs plan for us. He never loses hope. Why should we?

    Thanks, Amy.
