10. God's Indelible Stitches in the Tapestry
Slide 10 of 10
Our lives on earth are continual cycles of small, ordinary tasks, sprinkled with moments of life changing opportunities which show us the current needs of our heart.
Here are a few words from Corie Ten Boom, about the tapestry of life…
The dark threads are as needful in the weaver’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.
He knows, He loves, He cares; nothing this truth can dim.
He gives the very best to those who leave the choice to Him.
I’ve survived enough dark moments to treasure the indelible stitches God is stitching in my life. And those brilliant colored stitches I’m sure will begin with small, ordinary tasks achieved to honor God—to love my children and grandchildren, help family and friends, and comfort those who’ve lost loved ones.
What kind of stitches do you think God is recording in your life’s tapestry?
