The Starry Night

During this Christmas break we've been working on a 2000 piece puzzle of Van Gogh's Starry night!
It's coming, slow but sure!

The puzzle was a gift for Christmas

It's coming along and we have friends coming on Friday
to help us with it more!

While working on the puzzle, Jill Phillips song, "Wrecking Ball" goes through my head....
piece together these little mysteries
It isn't hard to see the writing on the wall
Triumph and tragedy, only God can be
Both the builder and the wrecking ball

God uses all the pieces of our lives for His glory and our good!
The light and dark, good and bad, all fit together into a beautiful picture. Truly, only He who sends good and bad into our lives is truly the builder and the wrecking ball.

Isaiah 53 speaks to this in verses 10-11....
Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief;
...Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see
and be satisfied;

He uses the good times and adverse times in our lives to teach us His way.
Lead on O King Eternal....
