Stitches and Knots
I’ve heard so many times that you and I are God’s Treasure.
We are His Masterpiece. His Tapestry. And He has a plan for us!
That’s so wonderful to hear. Isn’t it?!
I love knowing that He has a plan for.us.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
I love hearing about His promises.
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. and so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:20
I am overwhelmed when I hear how much He loves us.
“But God shows his love for us that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
It’s so comforting that the God of the Universe cares about us individually.
We often hear of these amazing truths and never fully receive what the Lord has for us because of our perspective.
The other side of the Tapestry.
Many of us view life looking at the back side of this Masterpiece.
It’s a mess!
Random threads. Jumbled. Purposeless. Knots. Chaotic.Tangled. Frayed. Senseless.
God is the Master Weaver. His view is complete. Every thread of failure, loss, rejection, triumph, faith, and promise are woven into His wonderful design.
He is creating His Master Work!.
Everywhere you go. Everything you see. There are no accidents. Your experiences are custom made.
Every now and then He gives us a glimpse of what He is weaving. We see the beauty in life. We understand our purpose. We see the colors and patterns of answered prayer. We see the threads of impossibility woven to create possibility. We get the courage to continue because we can see that life isn’t random and nothing is an accident.
Where are you today? What are you dealing with at this moment?
During these times we often lose heart. Whatever it is, it’s not the full picture.
“For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.” I Corinthians 13:9
Every experience from the top of the mountain to the inmost depth of the valley is not wasted.
Even when we don’t see it.
Every stitch. Every thread. Every knot. Every color. Every direction.
For His Glory.
What threads of difficulty are you facing?
What are the glimpses of hope and beauty you see in your life?
What is your prayer regarding the stitches and knots in your life?
