The other day when I was at my embroidery class. My friend made a comment, that her sister would not approve of her embroidery piece. She went on the say that the back was not pretty and neat.
It got me thinking, my life is like that embroidery piece in many ways. Knotted, frayed ends, threads that start from one point going to what seems to be a random direction, crossing other threads. Some places it resembles a pattern, there are even beautiful colors worked into it. I may try to make it neat and pretty. No matter how hard I try, it still looks messy.
Then I asked myself, is it my handiwork or is it God's? When I look up at it I see a mess, but when God looks down at it He sees a beautiful picture! Without all those messy knots that handiwork would fall apart. So I thank God for the knots in my life, no matter how bad they may look. Others may not always see me as a beautiful piece, but God does. Maybe we need to look pass the messy knots and the frayed ends in ourselves and in others to see what God sees. A beautiful work of art!!!
