Trusting in God’s Sovereignty
by Darlene L. Turner, author of Abducted in Alaska
Jigsaw puzzles seem to be the rage lately. Do you remember doing them as kids? Placing each piece in its specific spot was fun . . . until you either couldn’t figure out how one fit—or heaven forbid—you lost a piece. Then everything changed. It wasn’t fun anymore. More like frustrating. This got me thinking about life and how much our lives are like a jigsaw puzzle. When things are going along nicely, the pieces fit perfectly. The picture is becoming clear. We can see it and it’s just within our grasp. And then—WHAM!
Something happens. We can’t make the next piece fit or we’ve lost one. Our path changes. And not the way we want it to. We question God. “What are You doing? This is not what I wanted.”
In Abducted in Alaska, Canadian border patrol officer Hannah Morgan receives bad news that rocks her world, crushing her well-thought out plans for her life. How could this be happening? She questions God and what He’s doing. She goes through a roller-coaster set of emotions and has to work through the journey of trusting in God’s sovereignty. Her bump in her journey doesn’t fit into her perfect jigsaw puzzle. The picture is now distorted and she can’t see the end result.
We’ve all been there, right? So what do we do when that happens? Do we shove the entire puzzle on the floor and start over? No. We pick through each piece one at a time and trust we’ll find the right one. Hannah has to do this too and in the end becomes stronger.
God knows the big picture. He sees all the pieces of our lives—from the beginning to the end. Every happy moment and every blip in the road. Do we throw Him to the curb and stomp our feet thinking we can do things on our own?
No. We fall to our knees and TRUST. He’s sovereign and knows all. From the beginning to the end. He has bigger and better plans than anything we could ever dream possible.
We just need to trust Him with every piece of the jigsaw puzzle.
Jeremiah 29:11 (VOICE)
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that.”

Sounds like a book I will enjoy reading.
This sounds like a really good book that centers on a topic that you don’t here too much about but that you know is happening around the world.
Lovely! Thank you!
I spent more time doing puzzles than reading during quarantine last year, I think because it helped me calm and zen out while not escaping the reality of what was going on around me (the way books do).
yes, i agree!
I would enjoy this captivating story very much. A great setting and characters which make it come alive.
Sound good. Nice cover.
