Everyone loves Jigsaws. There is something very calming about sitting down to complete a 1,000 piece puzzle. But we all know the worst thing about puzzles – getting to the end and finding there’s a piece missing! It’s so annoying! If you want to do a jigsaw properly, you need all the pieces.
Life is a bit like that. We spend our days putting it together like a puzzle, bit by bit, hoping to create a complete picture. But sometimes it seems like a piece is missing. Even though we may know that life without God at the centre has lost the most important piece, it’s easy to forget Him in our daily lives. And even though we may go to church and our youth group, is He the king of everything we do? Sometimes we even get used to feeling distant from God. This makes it easier to be selfish and go our own way, adding to the sense that something important is missing.
But no matter how far we drift from God, He wants us near to Him. He called out to His people, Israel, through Isaiah: “Why spend money on what is not bread, and your [work] on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare” (ISAIAH. 55:2).
If something is missing in your life, remember that God is the only one who can fully complete and satisfy you. Without Him, you’ll always be missing the most important piece of life’z puzzle.
ONLY JESUS CAN SATISFY.
