Every year between Christmas and the new year I do one jig-saw puzzle. They can be a time waster and one a year is sufficient. This year I bought one at a charity shop and on the box it said ‘one piece missing.’ As I worked on the puzzle and struggled on a particular part, I kept wondering whether that was the piece which was missing. It quite spoilt the fun for me.
The experience made me contemplate whether I was ever the ‘piece’ missing in God’s plan and how it would spoil His plans for my life and others.
So a New Year resolution – not to be God’s ‘missing piece.’
