Life is not all pretty bow ties & lace. It is also messy piles of disconcerted mayhem. But even these challenging circumstances can be good, if you allow God to guide you through it all with loving grace. He will make what seems the unexplainable & unusual situation you go through, a living masterpiece.
Answers are often messy… Some of the most beautiful Patchwork quilts seem to have a few loose threads. Workable Solutions are seldom precise equations but seem to be untidy conditions that somehow work.
John Fischer called it “Life between the answers.” When it seems that things are coming apart, then surely unexpected meaning is dawning around the corner, just over the horizon.
Mysteriously beautiful is God’s tapestry weaved through the course of Our Lives. The King was born in a dirty manger. Truth died willfully, a heinous death on the cross. Victory exploded; from the dark, gloomy recess of a grave.
So Don’t be overcome when it seems your life is full of that which is troubling & confusing. God paints His most wonderful masterpieces in the midst of what seems to be disaster to our natural eyes, if we are looking. Seek and you shall find.
Beauty will be born in the faithful heart, if not here, in the hereafter. Even though she may have to push aside the dirt, new life will come forth in the spring. Do not give up in times of dark dismay. Life is being formed on the inside even in this season!
The Majestic, fantastic, brilliance of New Life is often formed in the soupy gloom of distress & pain. Even now I sense a supernatural, Everlasting Beauty arising in the lives of those readers who curiously seek to have a deeper truth deposited in their hearts.
Arise for your light has come. The glory of the Lord is risen upon you in Christ. Do not be dismayed. God is with you even now. Bow your knees. Open your heart. Dry your eyes. If the trials that you go through, draw you closer to the Eternal God. Then they are surely light afflictions. Because the beauty of the Lord is with you come what may!
Consider it not strange what you go through. God will make it beautiful to you , if you make yourself freely, available to Him.
