God's Got The Box

Last night we had classes for our kids department. This session I teach the 12 & 13 year olds with my friend, Brenda.

Last night we talked about God being our pilot. He knows all the controls, all the right paths, all the right angles, how to land, how to take off, how to keep things steady even when there's turbulence. He is in control of the "plane".

Brenda taught the lesson last night and one of the analogies that she used really got me thinking. She was explaining that when you put a puzzle together it's easier when you can see the cover of the box. The pictures is whole on the cover, not in pieces. Once you have the cover you can see where certain colors need to go, what the edges look like.

Just like life, things may be in a jumble, just pieces to a puzzle. But, God has the cover and see's the whole picture. He knows where every piece belongs, every color, every edge. He is in control.

Great analogy. Though with the pilot thing, I would think that I would be the pilot and God would be the control tower. I can't land or take off without him.

Loved the puzzle illustration! I'll have to remember that one for my youth group.
