Have you ever put together a puzzle? Robin and the Girls love to work them, they are a lot of fun and are also quite a challenge. When you work a puzzle, there are several things that are very important. First, you will notice that there is a picture on the box of what it is supposed to look like. It would be almost impossible to work a puzzle if we didn't know what it was supposed to look like when we finished. There are many pieces of different sizes and shapes and you need to know how they all fit together.
God has done the same thing for us, to help us to build our life into what He wants us to be. First of all, He gave us a picture. He sent His Son, Jesus, to show us how to live. Then He gave us the Bible as a set of instructions on how to put all the pieces together. Then he gave us prayer. Prayer is the glue that holds it all together. That is what we need to build our life to be like Jesus.
During this Lenten season, when asked what to give up, let’s give up worry, as it indicates you do not trust Him to heal the situation.
Give up Fretting as it indicates you are impatient with His process.
Give it all to Him and be the joyful souls He created us to be.
