Just keep weaving...

Don't despise the past.

Don't live in regret over your mistakes.

God knows! God plans! God uses!


God uses every detail in our lives to weave together a beautiful tapestry called our lives. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

A mistake often looks ugly. We sometimes spend so much energy wishing we had not made that mistake.

Picture the mistakes of our lives as brown strands of string. One brown strand (our mistake), by itself, is rather unattractive. It is bland and plain.

When we allow Jesus to touch our mistakes (the brown strand), He makes them shimmer and stand out, often causing them to be part of our biggest ministries.

Look at a piece of material or a blanket and notice the gold strand weaved throughout it to give it that beautiful and completed look. Without that, it is a plain, pretty, but plain color. God takes the pretty, but plain part of our lives and weaves in those things we think that God could never ever use to make us beautiful. God takes our "brown" and turns it into "gold"...

& God just keeps weaving...

Just keeps weaving.

  1. Nice reminder of God's abilities to work all things together for good in our lives! I love the picture of the tapestry, where we see the underside with all it's knots and blemishes, but He sees the beautiful picture He's weaving. Some things won't be revealed to us until heaven. I sense a brewing blog post here...



Hi! I'm glad you're "swimming" with me. Put your floaties on, grab an inner tube, and be prepared for anything. Sometimes the water is calm and relaxing, while at other times, it's a little rocky and full of waves. Either way, I'm heading upstream where truth isn't always comfortable. Come along for the ride or join the journey...cuz...We're learning to "Just keep Swimming, Just keep swimming!"
