Life is Like a Rubik’s Cube

Have you ever tried to solve a Rubik’s Cube? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried and failed to unscramble this complicated mess of colors. It amazes me that there are people out there who can decipher this puzzle. I once saw someone solve a Rubik’s Cube in less than fifteen seconds! I think life is much like a Rubik’s Cube. Time and time again, I have struggled against the obstacles of life, doing everything in my power to put things back together, to fit all the colors into place. But each time, all I manage to do is jumble my life even more. So what can we possibly do when the Rubik’s Cube of our life gets more mixed up than ever? The answer is: turn to the One who can help. Jesus Christ, the master puzzle solver, is the only one who can sort out the problems of life. When I try to solve my troubles on my own, I quickly become overwhelmed. But Christ invites me to give all my worries and cares to Him. Instead of trying to figure out my problems on my own, I get to follow Jesus one step at a time. When I let Him carry my troubles, I can rest in the safety of His protective and guiding hand. His power alone can sort out the cares that threaten to overpower me. Right now, God is working to bring about His good purposes. Even when I can’t understand what He’s doing, I can look forward to the day Jesus will return to earth to right every wrong, heal every brokenness, and restore all of creation. And I can know without a doubt that no matter how mixed-up, cluttered, and confusing life may get, God holds me in the palm of His hand. Because I belong to Christ, I no longer have to worry about solving the puzzles on my own. When I cast my cares on Him, I can be sure that He will take care of me. The Rubik’s Cubes of life are no puzzle to God. • Eliana Canfield • Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the struggles of life? Consider taking a moment to bring your problems to God and ask for His help. • How do you usually try to solve your problems? Remember that God doesn’t expect us to be able to figure things out on our own. He calls us to be in community and help one another.
