Life is made up of many pieces, like a puzzle. Here I attempt to put them all together.

The View From the Bridge - Chapter 2 of "Ordering Your Private World" by Gordan McDonald

The story is told of a submarine navigating crowded waters. Because of the number of other vessels in the water, the submarine had to make many twists and turns to avoid collision. The captain, who had been in his cabin, came onto the bridge to see why there was so much unusual activity. Looking around, he asked the duty officer if all was well. Receiving the assurance from the officer that everything was ok, he looked around, said "it looks ok to me too." and went back to his cabin. Because of the many hours of training and practice in proper procedure, his crew knew how to handle whatever circumstances came their way. And after a quick look from the bridge, the captain could see that all was under control and was able to go back to his own duties with the confidence that all would be well.

What is view when I look from the bridge of my life? Is all in order? Have I taken the time to establish the necessary order in my private world to withstand the sudden twists and turns so often encountered in life?

Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:23
