Poets have written that the days of our lives are like pieces of a puzzle which all fit together to form the mosaic of human life. For many of us, that emerging mosaic can often seem downright confusing. And we struggle with God over this issue. We say that we believe that he is ordering everything according to his good and perfect plan but so much of what happens in our lives is certainly not what we would call good or beneficial or even productive. Then we look at human history and the whole scene becomes mind boggling in its complexities.
The problem may be two-fold. First, it very well could be that we are imposing our view of what should happen in our lives and world history on God. And that just isn’t going to happen. He knows a whole lot more than we do. It is much better that, as the old song goes, “He’s got the whole world in his hands,” than us having the whole world in our hands! The second point worth considering is that God’s ways are usually much more simple than ours. We tend to complicate things, pretty much because we are so compromised in our outlook.
Before Jesus ascended into heaven he gave his disciples the last piece of the Divine Puzzle for humanity. The incredible thing is, he gives us an opportunity to be a part of putting that piece into its place. If you want to be part of something which is going to last a very long time, join us for one of our weekend worship services!
Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
