Famed crossword editor Will Shortz says: "We're faced with problems every day, and we almost never get clarity ....With a human-made puzzle you have satisfaction you don't get much in real life. You feel in control, and that's a great feeling."
That is the reason we have problems beyond human solution. Problems remind us we are not in control, prompting us to cry out to God. In life's puzzles we hear Jesus’ words, "Apart from me you can do nothing."
