When Life is a Mess!

“'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'” Jeremiah 29:11

How are you doing? Right here, right now. Life in today's world is complex, confusing and uncertain. As hard as we try, we can’t control all the variables. What looks great today can turn out to be a mess tomorrow.

Maybe your life feels a little like the scene Emma found when she returned from an errand. Her cat had discovered the balls of yarn near the couch. One good slap led to another and soon tangled lines of green, yellow and blue strands covered the floor! In the middle of the mess sat Emma’s cat—stranded and exhausted.

Emma disentangled the yarn, and while the cat watched from her cushion, Emma began to knit the colors together. The same threads were soon shaped into beautiful patterns that formed a warm blanket with lovely colors.

Have you ever found yourself as entangled in circumstances as the cat—batting them around and only making a bigger mess? There is a wiser One very near, who knows everything and has a purpose for every thread of your life. Rest in Him. Let Him show you the next step and the next and the next. In the end, you will look back on a beautiful tapestry of a God directed life.

Your View of God Really Matters…

Unfolding events surprise us, but they never surprise God. He has seen them coming all along. What would it look like for you to trust Him today to knit every strand of your life into a beautiful design that will glorify Himself and strengthen you?

Read God’s Word Today…

Job 28:23-24 NLT “God alone understands the way to wisdom; He knows where it can be found, for He looks throughout the whole earth and sees everything under the heavens.”

GOD, because You know everything I will look to You for direction.
