You know, I love yarn! Walking through a yarn store or aisle just makes me happy! Beautiful colors and glorious soft textures! I just love it! The problem is I can't do a darn thing with it!! I can't crochet or knit. My son is world class knitter, I'm just a knotter, if you know what I mean. He makes scarves and mittens, afgans and sweaters and yes, he tried to teach me...without success. Try as I might, it always ends up a mess. Knots and dropped stitches, never a finished project.
I feel like that sometimes too. A mess, lots of dropped stitches and knots. Ever feel that way?
Does God really know what He's designing in me?
Do you ever dislike the design He has planned for you, like I do?
You know, none of us are completed projects. We are all works in progress. And we all have a few dropped stitches too!
Psalm 139:13 says, "for you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
Although like me, you may be a knotter, and not a knitter, remember that God is working on us and in us, designing us exactly the way He wants us to be.
So whether you knit or knot, when you think of yarn, remember that you are God's beautiful work in progress and He never drops a stitch.
