My Aunt and I went shopping for her wedding ceremony coming up in three months time. She bought a lot of things including the material for her wedding gown which I admired the least of all the things she bought.
She took it to the tailor’s and when the tailor was through with the sewing, my Aunt and I went to collect it. The gown was very gorgeous and beautiful.
I then asked the tailor how she came about the beautiful gown. She smiled and said, “It’s the in between that matters”. I told her to expansiate as I didn’t understand what she meant by the ‘in between’.
She then explained to me the sewing process. She said she had to cut the material into the desired style, sew it, put some pieces together to make some other necessary parts and then, fix some accessories like beads and roses.
The ‘in between’ sounded like a very long process to me, but she said it all depended on the stuff of the material and also the tailor, but the most important thing us that the cloth comes out fine.
Every great person that we know of also has passed through that stage of ‘in between. – This represents the challenges, discipline and trials a person has to go through and overcome. God is the tailor; the sewing process depends on the individual’s co-operation. And then when God is through, he makes our life beautiful and pleasant.
And like John (Jesus disciple) said,” …. He (Jesus) brought to us one gracious blessing after another” (John 1:16b-NLT).
That is what God gives to everyone, just be patient with your ‘in between’.
