My sister Margie is an amazing person in many ways and one of her many gifts is to do embroidery/stitchery. I thought of Margie when reading Hope for Each Day by Billy Graham and it said,
We can trust that God is doing what is best for us. God says in His Word, “I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope for a future.” (Jer. 29:11 NIV)
As Corrie ten Boom once explained “Picture a piece of embroidery placed between you and God, with right side up toward God. Man sees the loose, frayed ends; but God sees the pattern.”
God is in control. Whatever comes into our lives, we can confidently say, “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Rom.8:28)
I just pray that I am called according to His purpose.
Margie gave me this embroidery over 30 years ago. She and Aunt Lorna have created many beautiful works of hand art.
