Last weekend I had the opportunity to share God’s love with women I love. Some I have known and loved a long time. Others were brand new to me. All were gifts straight from the Father to me. I look at this group of women as a tapestry. Some have a story that isn’t quite perfected yet- but they came seeking a Word for their season. One woman told me of her son’s miraculous change and we rejoiced that in just a year from the last retreat we were at together God had done the exceedingly abundant miracle of life for that son and so too for his mother. Another young woman shared of the miracle of making it in spite of the storm, in spite of the horrors of loss. Altogether such a beautiful tapestry of God’s unfailing love and His awesome love plans for His daughters no matter what.
Oh beloved, your life too is a tapestry. Woven together by the Master’s Hand. Oh so lovingly, God puts thread after thread together – not apart. Your tears become part of it. Your joy becomes part, your laughter, your hurts, your blessings, your pain. Each thread alone might look wrong or not fit at all or be the thread you’d like to cast away from your memory. But God – He knows how to make a tapestry. He knows the plan is: This girl is becoming a woman of faith, a valuable asset of Kingdom proportion. He knows you will need every single thread for it all to complete. And He says little daughter, do not fear. I AM the Great I AM. There is no other. None can save you, none can heal you, none can deliver you or make your worst nightmares into magnificent stories. None but Me. He says I love you, I love you, I love you. I AM going to complete this tapestry for your good and My Glory.
He goes on to encourage and pour out His love on you. He’s always going to pick you up out of the dust and ashes of whatever it is. He will not leave you defenseless, broken or cast off. This Lord and Savior is in Love with you! He loved you so much that He made a way to live with you forever! Not just heaven, but here on earth. You’re powerful, invincible, indestructible, courageous, beautiful, perfect and more. All because He loves you. Your tapestry will go on the Wall of Faith for all to see. This tapestry is sewn with His love, put together with His love and finished in His magnificent love. You are so very blessed!!!
God loves you and He’s for you. If you will allow Him, and trust Him, then you can be sure that all things in your life will work together for good. He is oh so trustworthy, He is oh so faithful, He is oh so loving and caring and kind. Rejoice that you are one of His most prized possessions and live with a view to His glory as you walk and talk in the Light of His Wonderful Truth!
