Issue 566 – Verse of the Week

October 27th – November 2nd, 2022


In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight, making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.   Ephesians 1:7-10

Puzzle Pieces

During the lockdowns of the COVID-19 pandemic, some people found their kitchen tables holding colorful jigsaw puzzles. Unlike the various parts of life, the puzzle pieces come with a photograph of what the completed puzzle would look like. Still, the parts have to be put together one at a time: flower by flower, structure by structure, cloud by cloud. Life is a puzzle made up of many pieces but, as you step back and take a look at how it is developing over time, you may see how God has been working to create a masterpiece of His liking. Whether the current pieces are dark or shining and colorful, know that God is working all things according to His plan for you, now and into the future.
