Life's Tapestry

Like so many I've wondered,
even though I trust in God,
How twisted circumstances
appear, even downright odd!

In the course of my life
I've come to understand,
by seeking God's wisdom
and resting in His hand,
that my life is like a tapestry,
God's arduous undertaking,
woven thread by thread as
a production in the making!

I realized I'm looking at the
reverse side of the tapestry,
a tangled web of threaded knots
that make no sense to me!

I cannot see the other side,
the work of God in progress,
because from my perspective,
it appears to be a mess!

It took time to quell my feelings,
because although I cannot see,
God's weaving His perfect will
in my life's tapestry! (c)

Gradually more & more of God's purpose is revealed if we faint not and trust Him, even when our reasoning & logic tells us otherwise!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
