THE - GREAT - TAPESTRY - MAKER -

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

WRITTEN   AUGUST  2013

BY S.C.MITCHELL

Father - You are the Great Tapestry Maker of our lives - and 
So much of what we see is just a tangle of different colours - 
Contrasts - knots ansd weaves - with what seems to be a lack
Of rhyme or reason - so much so - that we cannot see at times
Which way ahead You'd have us go - but all the while our trust 
Is in Your skilful hand - which moves - according to the way You've
Planned - with sunny hues and then the grey - to lead us through 
Each changing day - where - as we see our lives unfold - we see
The rainbows and the gold - though hidden through a veil of tears -
As sorrows come - as do the fears - but through it all Your hand is 
True - and deep within the midnight blue - there shines a light into 
The dark - that guides us through the darkest night - into the 
morning and the light - and sweet 
Refreshing dew .

One day - when we have reached the other shore - the loom is
Stilled - and moves no more - then we can see the picture true -
That speaks of labour - borne with love - from You - as You turn 
Your work of art towards the Son - we see the marvels You have 
done - with the paltry bits we've offered You - we stand in awe at 
All You do - as now - what could have been a tangled mess - is
Glorious in its Holiness - as You have cleansed us from our 
Grimy past - and covered us with wondrous Grace - as of a
Bridal veil of purest white - our shame is gone - and 
All is bright .

So - thank You Lord - that now I see - Your love has 
Blessed and covered me - and all my sins have 
Been replaced - by the reflection of 
Your Lovely Face . 

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

I know that I am still a work in progress , and the 
picture isn't yet complete , but I am so grateful 
that Jesus is the Master Tapestry  Maker of my 
life , and He won't give up until it is complete . 

I also pray that you will let Him be the same for 
you .

God bless you
