Tapestry

Our lives are like a tapestry.  Have you ever closely examined a tapestry? It is a wonderful kind of exquisite art form with intricate designs woven into a beautiful wall hanging. The artist must know how to take threads and create something beautiful. The artist has a picture in their mind of what the tapestry will look like when it is finished.  God is the MASTER weaver and creator and He had a tapestry in mind when He created us. He is still working on us and weaving our lives into what He has pictured for us. Sometimes we look at our lives and see what seems to be a haphazard bunch of threads because we cannot see the beautiful tapestry that God is creating.  We need to trust the Master weaver, designer and creator and know that He will make all things beautiful in HIS time. “Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT). We may not know or fully understand His design in our lives until we get to Heaven but we need to trust Him with our lives.

God bless!
