Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. I was going through my art files and found a pencil drawing that an artist-friend rendered of me after my diving accident: it looks like a puzzle with “pieces of the puzzle” missing in my hair and my neck. It’s a very true representation of what I was going through right after my diving accident. I was young and scared and just beginning to fit together the puzzle of my suffering by sorting through God's Word. And what did I find out? Simply this: Wisdom is not the ability to figure out the puzzle pieces of your life and how they fit. Rather, wisdom is trusting God even when things don't fit; even when some pieces of your life-puzzle are missing. First Corinthians chapter 2 says, our faith doesn’t rest on our wisdom, but in the power of God to work gloriously in us. So trust in him; rest in him; because one day, Jesus will complete the puzzle.
