Sacred Spaces 419– Puzzles and Jesus the carpenter
13 May 2014
I’ve picked up this new hobby. I am building puzzles. I love it! It’s therapeutic and stimulating at the same time. I love how the pieces come together over time revealing a scenic puzzle.
Searching for the pieces can be tough but when I find it… and it fits into place, I am satisfied.
I then think of Jesus, his earthly profession as a carpenter. His job was about putting “pieces” together to make completed furniture.
I can’t help but think… while He did that. Making furniture… He peered into His feature… thinking about each of us. He may have thought:
As I put these joints and bits together to create some beautiful furniture.
These ‘pieces’ of wood are in my hands… I know what the finished product will look like.
Same with you, children of God.
I am creating something in your life. Putting the pieces together. Over time…
I will reveal my masterpiece.
You will be complete!
