Recently I pulled into a store parking lot. I was going to go inside to pick up something for my wife. To my amazement, I looked down and there it was! It was simply a piece to a puzzle. It was a puzzle piece laying on the parking lot just outside my car door.

I smiled. I quietly laughed. I thought, “There it is y’all! I’ve finally found the missing piece to the puzzle!” Of course I had to snap a picture of it as well. I didn’t want to forget this little moment.

Of late I have really been asking God for wisdom and direction. After a few weeks of seeking God through tears, fasting, prayer and such, I come across this “missing puzzle” piece. A random lil’ happening in life? Sure. A lil’ reminder from Heaven that answers have come and are on their way? Absolutely! I believe God works in our everyday lives in big ways.

Have you ever felt puzzled? Missing something? Missing pieces?

Have you ever had God answer you with unexpected answers? He is a prayer answering God. When we need wisdom, He will provide us with it. It is scriptural to pray for a word of wisdom when we need it. It is equally biblical to ask God for wisdom when we need it.

What a great God we serve. He is God. He is the only God. He gives wisdom when we ask Him. If you are looking for the missing piece to your puzzle, ask God for wisdom and direction. He will lead and guide you. Perhaps He’ll even surprise you with an unexpected sign in the night while you’re going about your daily life!

Keep praying. Keep seeking God. Keep hoping. He is your answer. You are complete in Him.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
Ps 34:6

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Prov 3:5-6

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
1 Cor 12:8

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Jam 1:5
