“My life is but a weaving…”

Ever look back on a series of events and see that all the pieces were coming together perfectly? Ever look back and realize that the hand of God had to be orchestrating things because there’s no way that you could make things happen the way they did? Ever stand back and say, “Wow. Everything that has happened, the good and the bad, has led my life to this moment“? It leaves you awestruck and breathless. Well, it leaves me awestruck and breathless, anyway.

While I cannot share many details right now, I promise I will in the very near future. In the meantime, let me say this, friends:

God has been at work. He is still at work.

He hasn’t put all of the pieces into place yet, but I can see how He has already brought so many threads together. He’s weaving an incredible work of art. It’s been pretty amazing to stand back and watch it all start coming together as He slowly reveals His handiwork.

I can’t wait to share the story He is telling. But for now, I’m going to watch Him work in the amazing ways that only He can.

It leaves me in awe.

It takes my breath away.

My life is but a weaving - Corrie ten Boom

Life is but a Weaving
(the Tapestry Poem)

My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaveth steadily.

Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal the reason why.

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.

All I can say is I’m genuinely intrigued by whatever is is God is doing in your life to leave you so awestruck and breathless. But you’re right, God does work in mysterious ways. We have a saying that goes “God writes straight but in crooked lines”, meaning there are times when one simply can’t comprehend why certain things have to happen, albeit with the assurance that everything’s a part of God’s grand scheme. All we can say when faced with such circumstances is Thy Will Be Done.
