Life’s tapestry

Snuggle in God’s arms. When you are hurting,
when you feel lonely, left out. let Him cradle you,
comfort you, reassure you of His all-sufficient power and love.
~ Kay Arthur

Tapestry copy
I will not leave you comfortless John 14 v 18


Jesus we rest in You.
We wait before You as You pour Your healing balm
in the wounded places of our lives.
You embrace us, and dry our tears with Your soothing presence.
You fill us with fresh hope and abundant life.
Your plans for us are loving and kind.
You remind us, that as we look to You,
all things work together for our good.
You take all our sadness, disappointments and pain,
and weave them into a beautiful tapestry.
As we look at the unfinished work, at times it may
seem  meaningless, but Lord when You reveal the finished work,
we will recognize that all Your dealings with us,
have been inspired by perfect love.

Not ‘til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reasons why-
The dark threads are as needful,
In The Weaver’s skillful hands
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.      ~ B M Franklin
