“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV
From God’s perspective, our lives are like this embroidery. God uses the threads of our circumstances and choices in life to weave a masterful design that displays His glory.
What a contrast between these two sides of the same work of art! When trials and difficulties come along we can lose perspective. All we can see are the tangled threads of our circumstances.
“Although the threads of my life have often seemed knotted, I know by faith that on the other side of the embroidery…There is a Crown.” Corrie ten Boom quote on this embroidery hanging in her house.
