PATTERNS

“Jesus said to him, you do not understand now what I am doing, but you will understand later on.” John 13:7 (Amplified Bible)

The date was October 10, 1934. The young bride-to-be was from a poor family, and the wedding celebration would be held on her childhood farm. There would be one professional photograph taken of her in her floor-length wedding gown. The dress was made of white satin, the lace bodice adorned with a red corsage. None of the guests could have known that the young bride in the picture had made the gown herself, with no pattern….

My grandmother’s wedding dress symbolizes what life can be like for the Christian. We are fearful or lacking in faith because we can’t see what God is doing—we want to see the pattern that shows us how things will turn out. This is where faith comes in. God is the creator, piecing together the fabric of my life and yours. In the end, we will see the finished work. We simply have to trust the Creator of all things with the“later on” mentioned in John 13:7.

How many times do we look back on our circumstances and see what God was doing all along? In the end, He makes something beautiful of our circumstances when we serve Him. Just like my grandmother, an excellent seamstress, knew how to create a beautiful wedding dress, God creates beauty with the circumstances of our lives. Trust Him when you don’t see the finished product.
