I see life as an unfinished tapestry being woven by amighty, loving God, who carefully chooses the colors of each individual thread, placing every single one exactly where it needs to go to make us into the people He put us on this earth to be.
As multitudes of thread colors are used to weave the most beautiful of tapestries, so the Lord uses a multitude of experiences to weave us into the people He created us to be. Some experiences are wonderfully bright and cheerful; others are bleak, bland, and seem boring. The darkest times in our lives, the most difficult, are often the ones God dramatically uses for that punch of contrast. Then there’s white, which brings out the highlights and opens our eyes.
We may not like some of the colors God has chosen for our tapestry, but when it’s fully complete, each color will make sense.
