One of my good friends had been saying the same thing over the months, they said, “when our situations settle, everything will fall into place”. I knew exactly what that meant. It means that God has a plan and when all the situations work out, then the pieces that we have been trying to find the proper place for will suddenly fall into place. I have spent so much time trying to force pieces into place, not being content until the puzzle was solved, however being willing to ensure that this occurred even if the final image was bent, torn, and close to the correct size but not right after all. That is called impatience. That is called fear. Fear of not having a completed puzzle, and fear that God will leave me to figure it out on my own. Even though this is something I couldn’t consciously comprehend, that is what was beneath the surface festering, causing me to put together and try to force together pieces of the puzzle that were not meant to fit. This friend also once said to me, “don’t force anything!” That wisdom has never left my mind, and it has since lingered and guided the path that I have been taking since than. So, what will the final outcome be? The truth is that none of know what we will end up being, or what God has in store for us. We couldn’t even fathom or imagine it, the bible tells us this. All we have to do is trust in God. We just need to have a relationship with him, talk to him, and seek him in earnest. Do our best to please him as a wife would do for her husband, a Son for his Father, A daughter for her mother, a husband for his bride, though that is what we are to Jesus. Jesus never got to have a bride. I got to thinking one day that maybe Jesus would have loved a bride. Maybe he would have loved Mary Magdalene or someone else, and maybe that was the need that God intended to satisfy him with and made the church his bride. Maybe that was Jesus secret prize for faithfulness. I am not pretending that that is what the bible said, rather it is just a guess because that is the way God is. He intends on giving us back far more than we could ever expect or give him in return. We are his bride. We are his pride and joy, and our completeness is his eternal joy. That is what is his prize, to see us truly fulfilled. That is what love is. So for this reason we can trust that everything is meant to fall into place for us. It surely will.
