Unique Pieces of our Life Puzzle

fearfully and wonderfully made
I love the words of Psalm 139:13-15

You brought my inner parts into being; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will praise you, for You made me with fear and wonder, marvelous are Your works, and You know me completely. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, and intricately put together in the lowest parts of the earth.

No matter who we are, no matter what we are able to do or not do, no matter what we look like, nothing is hidden from God. He knows each one of us intimately.

How do we deal with the uniqueness of the puzzle pieces of our lives? How do we interact with those who may have some special puzzle pieces in their lives? Sometimes these pieces are short term such as when I broke my knee and needed a brace, crutches and six weeks of not putting any weight on that leg. For six weeks I had some special needs. Crutches and I did not get along well at all. In addition, it happened in February in Saskatchewan with snow and ice covering sidewalks and roads outside. My townhouse had stairs everywhere and I felt trapped in one part of my home. I needed extra help for everyday chores. I knew the time frame until I could be rid of these extra pieces in my life but it made me think of others who need mobility aids everyday, with no hope of them disappearing.

Other times these unique needs in our lives happen, maybe due to aging, an accident or an illness. Almost two years ago I knew the time had arrived to have my hearing tested. I constantly felt like I needed to ask people to repeat themselves. When I taught workshops, I often could not hear the participants, especially those with a soft voice. The result of the test showed hearing loss and a suggestion of hearing aids. I had barely passed sixty and I needed hearing aids! A loss of hearing was not reversible but for me hearing aids were a viable option. It took awhile to get used to them and know I needed them for the rest of my life. Yet I became grateful when I could participate in a discussion with someone, hear my friends share something or know what my grandchildren were talking about ( well at least having an option to understand – some subjects are just beyond me!)


This clip art of button covered puzzle pieces says that every kid needs some help and someone to believe in them is great but I suggest that all of us, no matter what our age, need some help from time to time and we all need someone to believe in us. I am grateful for family and friends who know me, love me for who I am and encourage me to be myself.

What unique puzzle pieces show up in your life? Who offers you help and encouragement?
