Today is just a piece, and then another

We all hold in our lives
         pieces of a puzzle
we don't understand
"Does this one belong somewhere?"
This difficult person,
a hardship endured,
an opportunity missed,
      and even what appears a dead end?
And at the oddest times it seems,
connections are made when suddenly,
    another incomprehensible shape is found,
sometimes what was cast aside as arbitrary,
sometimes hidden in the folds of the couch,
sometimes like a dime on the sidewalk.
"I wonder where this one goes."
It is not that we create what connects them
but see that the interlocking mechanism
          was there all along,
                forming an intricate design.
And so, that bit of darkness
simply contrasts with the light
       for divine purposes yet to be realized,
           His goodness revealed.
Today is just a piece,
           and then,

And I am sure that He
    who began a good work in you
will bring it to completion...

                   Philippians 1.6
