The Plan of the Master Weaver

Our lives are but fine weavings that God and we prepare. Each life becomes a fabric planned and fashioned in His care. We may not always see how the weavings intertwine, but we must trust the Master's hand and follow His design for He can see the pattern upon the upper side, while we must look from underneath and trust in Him to guide.

Sometimes a strand of sorrow is added to His plan and although it is difficult for us, we still must understand that it's He who fills the shuttle… It's He who knows what's best. So we must weave in patience and leave to Him the rest.

Not until the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why…. The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver's skilful hand as the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned. Author Unknown
