My wife and I were putting together a 1000-piece puzzle of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree in New York City.
It was a tough puzzle! Often, we can put together a 1000-piece puzzle in less than 24 hours, but this one kept us busy for days.
What I noticed, though, was near the end, the pieces started flying into place. The last two hundred pieces went together very fast compared to the first few hundred pieces which seemed to take forever to place.
Spiritual healing can feel the same way sometimes. At first, it might look like our prayer isn’t bringing any results, or meager ones at best. But we should never lose heart. Our initial prayers to get grounded in Truth are laying the groundwork for the complete healing to come. Once we get a clear view of the pertinent spiritual reality that addresses the immediate need, the rest of the healing can come quickly.
So, never give up. Keep going up in thought until the full healing light of Truth dawns. The “pieces of the puzzle” will come together for you.
