The Puzzle

Life is like a puzzle

We keep looking for the next piece

How much and what will it take 

to make us happy and complete?

 

We may buy this and decorate that

and then redecorate, because

we found something better 

to go with the this and the that

 

We may be concerned 

with the way that we dress

As a result, our closets are full 

of things we possess

 

We put so much importance 

on so many different things 

that we neglect filling in the piece 

that makes our puzzle complete

 

The many pieces we try don’t quite align

and never will until Christ is first in our life

Right before Jesus died, He said, “It is finished”

He accomplished everything He’d been sent to do

 

There were no gaps—Jesus filled in each space

His blood was shed so that sin could be forgiven and erased

His holy sacrifice was the piece enabling removal of our sin

Does your puzzle include Jesus? He included you in His!

 

“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?”

Matthew 16:25-26

About the Author

Debbie always had a desire to write a book, but didn’t have a clue as to what the content could be. Children’s books and short stories piqued her interest most. She had dabbled with writing family-oriented poems, off and on over the years, but became overwhelmed with a hunger to write about God and His love in her late fifties. She started seeing God everywhere she looked whether it was in a deck of cards, movie titles, nursery rhymes, popular sayings, flower petals, or a baseball game. She finally realized that prophecy was being fulfilled when one of her sons told her that her poetry glorified God and was meant to be shared. The Lord’s words from an encounter in 2011 immediately returned to her. She had found her way to speak about God just like He told her she would. Debbie is sharing her poetry in hopes that it will nourish and strengthen souls for the Kingdom of God. She refers to her poetic style as floetry, as it is the move of the Holy Spirit flowing from her heart to another. Her desire to flood the prisons with her book is due to God’s belief in her, and in her belief that no one can cast the first stone, but that everyone can help someone who is in desperate need of a Savior.
