If you were to watch a weaver of tapestry and focused only on a small piece of the work , it would not look beautiful. It would look like a few peculiar threads randomly placed. Often I use that same, limited perspective to look at my life – especially when I’m going through a difficult time.
I am learning to have perspective when I go through confusing and difficult times. When events make me feel, think, and question, I am in the midst of learning something important.
I can trust that something valuable is being worked out in me- even when things are difficult, and I feel lost.
Insight and clarity do not come until I have mastered my lesson. These learning experiences are for trusting that things will work out.
Events in my life are not random. My experiences are not a mistake. I am going through what I need to go through to learn something valuable, something that will prepare me for the joy and love I am seeking.
