The Little Loom

I was thinking this morning of the little loom I was using to weave tiny seed beads into a design, and how it was just not up to the job, it was a toy and not meant for serious work.

You could not adjust either end without the entire thing falling apart, and all the work you'd done lay in disarray, till you finally get discouraged and put it up somewhere, leaving that effort to be continued another day.

But then when you search out and find just the right one, one built to last that holds together - it makes all the difference in the world and you come back to your craft, renewed in spirit, ready to start a new endeavor.

I felt like that toy loom before I met you - each project was begun with determination and grit, but before long the flaws in my life would all come out, and nothing I'd created seemed to fit.

I would try to adjust it, but nothing would do, the entire thing just fell apart the more I tried, and I got so discouraged that my efforts all met with failure, that I gave up on the whole thing and just let life pass me by.

Then Jesus came along, and He held in His hands exactly the tools He knew I would need - for if I would just let Him, He would give me a whole new plan, along with all the tools to make the thought become a deed.

He transformed my heart, He made me brand new, and showed me a new way to be, and taught me that if I would just follow in His lead, a whole new life would be spread out in front of me.

I accepted what Jesus offered, I took what He gave me to use, and I learned to life in faith and hope once again, and every day was better, I was learning to use my new tools, I was going forward, not looking back at the failures that had been.

And at just the right moment, Jesus knew just what to do, He brought me to a place that was brand new, and to continue on my journey with Him, into my life He brought me you!

Now the tools I've been given are just right, God's pattern is clear and bright, and I have been given the dream I'd thought I'd never have, and now I get to live in the light!

Each day is a brand new pattern, the underlying foundation is sure and true, and I know that all the hours of the day I will adore working side by side with you.

For in you I have been given a treasure beyond any I ever knew, for our lives are forever entwined with love, and each day I give my heart again to you.

The Lord is so merciful in that He not only causes us to become new creations in Him, but He takes the time to teach us (being that omnipotent Teacher that He is) how to leave our pasts behind us and press on toward that mark. I am blessed for having read your work, as always.
