We are all a tapestry



When things get difficult the first thing I try to do is turn to God, its not always my first thought, but He reminds me that I need to do that. He is my refuge, He is my rock, He is my salvation. I know there are so many people hurting around the world for different reasons, some more extreme than others. But I just want you to know that God is with you always, even when you don’t think He is. He takes care of us when we can’t do it ourselves, He lifts us up when we can’t, He loves us when we don’t. So for all those who are hurting in any way I pray that you will feel God’s presence today, in some way! When I want to feel or see God, I look around me and He is everywhere. Look at the beauty of a flowers, a child’s eyes, a baby laughing or crying, a bird flying. He is there, we just have to look and feel Him. We can’t understand everything because we are not capable of seeing the whole picture, we only see the bottom of the tapestry, all messy and not very clear. But God sees the top of the tapestry, a beautifully woven picture of His people that He loves. I hope your day is blessed with God’s love.
β€œIn the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.” John 17:18 (MSG)
