The Rubik's Cube

Ever had one of those days when life feels like a Rubik's Cube?  (Remember those?)  I mean a day when no matter how you twist it and turn it, life is an unsolvable puzzle!  Nothing you do makes the pieces fit together the way they're supposed to.
I had one of those days yesterday.  No matter what I did, nothing was working out the way I hoped and wanted it to.   I ended up with a monster-sized headache and crawled into bed, feeling defeated.  I was having a rubik's cube meltdown moment.
When I woke up this morning, in the still, dark, soft quiet of my room, my first thought was, "Uggghhhh!!!  Head and heart still hurting and I am going to stay under these covers and pretend it's still night time!"

But God…  (those famous words, right?)  
But God had other plans.  As I lay there, He spoke to me.  He is the One who gave me the image of the Rubik's Cube.  And he said, "Just give it to me…  I will solve the puzzle.  I will put all the pieces together the way they really are supposed to fit.  Let go and give it to me…"

So I did…  I gave it to Him, who is able to 'fix' things as only He can.   In my hands that rubik's cube  is a twisty, turny crazy box of squares that want to go in all kinds of crazy directions, and never the right one.  

In His hands, the rubik's cube of my life fits and works just right.  And so I wait expectantly, because He is always faithful to His promises.  
His love never fails!

Ephesians 3:20 CEB

Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us;
