Zaiah conquers his puzzles with vibrancy and optimism – never doubting his ability to overpower any minute setbacks in his ultimate victory.
And He gladly aids his older siblings in a triumphant success. In fact, they recruit his avid puzzle skills.
His puzzling is SERIOUS business.
His mind can conceive the ultimate end. He can see how it all fits together.
And with every puzzle, Zaiah paints me a fresh and comforting picture of the sovereignty of God…. how beautifully God orchestrates the humbling details of my life to precisely fit together and creates a perfect reflection of His unconditional, astonishing LOVE in my life.
In retrospect, I can marvel at God’s work.
From my lowest point of self absorbed, crippling anxiety, He restored me beyond my expectations.
The struggle against Satan’s attempts to posses my mind pales in comparison to God’s ultimate FREEDOM and hope.
Because I desperately needed His deliverance, I behold His precious grace with a renewed sense of wonder and excitement.
His love conquers all.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
