SPRING 2018 FEATURED MESSAGE Are You the Piece to My Puzzle? By: Riika Wright T There are some days you just feel like caving in and quitting; let’s just be honest and transparent for a moment.  I know, I know, you thought this was going to be warm and fuzzy, didn’t you?  We’ll get there, I promise.   . First, I’d like you to answer the following questions, either on paper or in your mind: what type of day are you having right now?  How is your month going? Has everything gone as planned for you so far in the New Year? As you begin to think about and answer these questions, I want you to know that your answers are all a matter of perspective.  Whose lens are you seeing things through? Often times, we view life’s challenges through our own lens. When we do this it can distort the real picture, the beauty that we really need to see.  God has made each and every one of us so unique and beautiful and we fit into life’s huge, intricate puzzle.  You are extremely special and valuable because you are the only one holding your specific puzzle piece that the world needs.    You may be asking, “Well, what piece of the puzzle am I?” That is an awesome question and one that needs to be asked and explored.  Some of you know what your puzzle piece is: musician, photographer, speaker, author, doctor, minister, entrepreneur, and the list goes on.  If you are unsure, the best place to start is in the word of God.  9
