EMBROIDERY

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 1 month ago
When I was a little boy, my mother used to embroider a great deal. I would

sit at her knee and look up from the floor and ask what she was doing. She

informed me that she was embroidering. I told her that it looked like a

mess from where I was sitting, which was the underside. I watched her work

within the boundaries of the little round hoop that she held in her hand.

 

She would smile at me, look down and gently say, "My son, you go about

your playing for a while, and when I am finished with my embroidering, I

will put you on my knee and let you see it from my side."

 

I would wonder why she was using some dark threads along with the light

ones and why they seemed so jumbled from my view. A few minutes would pass

and then I would hear Mother's voice say, "Son, come and sit on my knee."

 

This I did, only to be surprised and thrilled to see a beautiful flower or

a sunset. I could not believe it, because from underneath it looked so

messy.

 

Then Mother would say to me, "My son, from underneath it did look messy

and jumbled, but you did not realize that there was a pre-drawn plan on

the top. It was a design. I was only following it. Now look at it from my

side and you will see what I was doing."

 

Many times through the years I have looked up to my Heavenly Father and

said, "Father, what are You doing?" He has answered, "I am embroidering

your life." I say, "But it looks like a mess to me. It seems so jumbled.

The threads seem so dark. Why can't they all be bright?" The Father seems

to tell me, "My child, you go about your business of doing My business,

and one day I will bring you to Heaven and put you on My knee and you will

see the plan from My side."

We do not always see the big picture for our lives and so we need to keep

in mind that God is in control and He will use every good and bad thing in

our life to make us stronger and in turn more useful to do His work.

 

Even though we face problems in life, let us stay faithful and true to the

Lord.  Always remember that God is a giver of good and perfect gifts and

even though the enemy will cause us trouble or heartache, God will turn it

around and use it for His good. (Romans 8:28)

 

I encourage you to never think that just because you have made mistakes in

life that God will not forgive you or use you to minister to others.  God

is a forgiving and forgetting God (Isaiah 43:25). Once we come to Him in

repentance, God is faithful and just to forgive us from all iniquity

(Titus 2:14) and make us pure, just as He is pure.

 

Stay faithful and one day we will see how God shaped and used our life for

His purpose and will hear those glorious words "Well done, thou good and

faithful servant." 

 

 

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

 

2 Corinthians 4:17 "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment,

worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory."

 

1 Peter 1:7 "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than

of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto

praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ."

 

Psalm 5:11-12 "But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let

them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that

love thy name be joyful in thee.  For thou, LORD, wilt bless the

righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield."

 

Luke 6:20-23 Jesus says ".Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of

God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are

ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate

you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall

reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is

great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the

prophets."

 

Psalm 104:31-33 "The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD

shall rejoice in his works.  He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he

toucheth the hills, and they smoke. I will sing unto the LORD as long as I

live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being."

 

All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
