Love and the Rubix Cube

The Rubix Cube came out sometime in the 1980s and I was one of millions that had one of those toys. I was also one of the millions who couldn’t solve it “legally” (I would take it apart and put it back together). Turn here—twist there, but I never quite figured it out. I’d get one, maybe two sides right, but getting the other 4-5 sides seemed impossible to solve. Life can be like that. So can love. Brian Cramer says, “Love is like the perfect Rubix Cube. There are countless numbers of wrong twists and turns, but when you get it right, it looks perfect no matter what way you look at it.”

Twist, turn, study, twist, turn, study, intermixed with wrong twists and turns. This is one of many ways to look at life and love. You work on solving a temporary situation and make a couple of adjustments. Then, you notice that on another side there is a jumbled mess of colored squares. So you attempt to solve it again by twisting and turning, trying to get all the sides to correspond to their appropriate color.

As you think about your life right now, how many sides are you getting to match up? Are you twisting and turning with no avail to get the sides to match? As you continue on in life, think about all the twists and turns that come your way. Some may be incorrect, but eventually they will come out where all the colors match up.

Enjoy life and love and look forward to those times when the sides match up!

PRAYER: Father, thank You for watching over me as I may not see what twists and turns I am supposed to make in life. You know how to make the sides match up. Please guide me in making the correct twists and turns as I go about life.

“Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long” (Psalm 25:4-5 NIV).

    Jarrod, thanks. You’ve solved the cube for me; I don’t have to have the sides all matching at once! What a relief. I’ll enjoy the twists and turns more now.
