A Quote of Encouragement

"Only heaven will reveal the top side of God's tapestry."
Corrie Ten Boom

If you have ever looked at the back side of a tapestry, it is messy and unorganized, sometimes ugly and doesn't make sense. Much like this life that we live sometimes. But, when you turn the tapestry over, you see that each messy thread has a wonderful and beautiful purpose and that the designer had a reason for the placement of each.

Trust God with your messes. Know that your threads are interconnected with others and that He has a wondrous design that is larger than anything we can imagine.

That was a great reminder. I think I probably am a mess if you turn me over...but it is nice to think that what matters is how it looks to God!

Blessings!
