Life is but a Weaving

Were you ever in a situation where everything is seemingly meeting with failure? The very existence of life is questioned. Desperate to see success you are clutching at straws. Your days are swiftly passing as a weaver’s shuttle. You are unable to understand the reason behind the events in your life. This may be happening to you or someone you love dearly. There is suffering and helping them is beyond you. It is breaking your heart.

The Psalmist wrote as he turned to God for his answers. Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart, and my part forever.” The tapestry of your life is woven so intricately that the present does not yield the full view. The designer is God. He is the one bringing you into your situation. It might seem grievous now, but it is ultimately for the glory of His name. The answer to your desperate cry will be fully known when at last you stand before Him in glory. But here, now, keep thanking Him for His presence, His love and His grace. Every tear rolling down your cheek is accounted for in His presence. Your body, your mind and your heart may fail, but take heart, God is your strength. He is your rock, your salvation, your defense, your expectation, your glory, and your refuge.
