THE GRAND PUZZLE/ RUSH “Closer To The Heart”


I put together these Hugh puzzles then glued them to keep the pieces together. How wonderful it is to take the pieces of our life, past mistakes and mile stones and keep those pieces together to try and get the bigger picture of our lives:


Frustrated with using my cell phone to try and add these pic.s but hope you can see close up, individual pieces.

2 Samuel 22:21-25 MSG               “God made my life complete when I placed all the pieces before him. When I cleaned up my act, he gave me a fresh start. Indeed, I’ve kept alert to God’s ways; I haven’t taken God for granted. Every day I review the ways he works, I try not to miss a trick. I feel put back together, and I’m watching my step. God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.”

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

When looking at just one piece of a huge puzzle it is near impossible to see the whole picture from that one piece.

Whatever your going through right now, regardless of how many pieces, know that God knows the whole picture and can put it all together, may this encourage you to let Him.

Psalm 41:4-5

4 I said, “God, be gracious! Put me together again – my sins have torn me to pieces.” 5 My enemies are wishing the worst for me; they make bets on what day I will die.

Even in our darkest, most confusing times when

we don’t know what the future holds, we can know who holds the future.

If i may let me change the words to a great song by the great band RUSH…

I would only change one thing, the very last line in the song…Converted lyrics would go like this:

“You can be the Captain, let God draw the chart, sailing into destiny ‘closer to the heart’.”

Original Closer to the Heart – Lyrics

And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones who start
To mold a new reality
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
They forge their creativity
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart

Philosophers and plowmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
You can be the captain
I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the heart

Let’s do our part, be the Captain, but go by the charts God draws (circumstances He allows us to be in, both good and bad situations) following His word as Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (B.I.B.L.E.) and sail into destiny HE calls us to, closer to the heart.

Romans 8:28 NIV
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Phil. 4:6-7  Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. 7 Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

Once again i say, “i don’t know what the future holds but i know who holds the future.”  We can not control many things but we can hold the hand that CAN. He knows what storms your way will oppose. HE knows.
