"The Unfinished Puzzle, written by Ashley Alice White, is aunique devotional that addresses the many problems we may come across and talksabout how to cope with them. She starts off by comparing the complexity of ourlives to big puzzles with many pieces. She continues to explain how we may feelthe urge to simply place these pieces wherever we wish, but in the end, thisnever works out. She tells the readers to 'stop forcing things to happen' andinstead 'leave it up to God' to put things in the right place.
She gives countless references to explain how God's promisein the bible reaches out and comforts us in a time of desperation andneed.
The writer writes from her ownexperience and I can tell, based on the way she's certain that
even when you feel like you've hit rockbottom, it's important to know that God is there with you. The Lord sees us ineverything we do and knows how we feel because everything is predetermined frombefore we were even born; God knows us inside out so undoubtedly, he knows whatyou can and can't handle.
The writer has given many ways that readers can adapt tostressful situations and they revolve around the premise of thinking about Godto be one's friend. Her advice to readers is to remember Him later on afterward
when you overcome a hardship becauseit is only with His help and guidance that you did so. Moments of joy andhappiness are usually spent without remembrance of His blessing and that'swhere most go wrong. I've learned, after reading this book that it helps tothink positively about the problems you're going through because 'a miracle iscoming your way'. White, through her book, will inspire a countless number ofpeople to study the word of God and put their faith in Him wholeheartedly."
