Ever see the back of an unfinished rug? It is messy. Kinda like life sometimes. Recently, I watched Pastor Robert Morris preach a sermon on how it parallels our journey. People and events come and go which weave an intricate pattern called life.
At first glance, you may look at it and think that doesn’t look very nice, but then you turn it over and see the final product. The beauty is astonishing.
God sees us and can take the messes of our lives and turn it into something beautiful like a Persian rug shown below. Wow!
We may not get the answers to all of our questions here on Earth that we’d like, but my hope is when we look back on our journey, we will see how God put all the pieces together that created our unique story.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
– Proverbs 3:5-7
Do you have a story you’d like to tell about how God wove a beautiful story in your life? I’d love to hear it.
