HOW DOES YOUR LIFE-QUILT LOOK?
“I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and my soul knows very well.” Psalm 139:14 (NKJV)
Have any of you ever made a quilt, or know someone who has made one? What pops into your head when you hear of quilts? Unique, special, made with love? Have you ever heard of the phrase, ”When Life Throws You Scraps…Make a Quilt”
Our lives are like quilt- pieces put together. Each thing that happens to us in that certain material that is included in our life quilt. The pattern forms itself and God has stitched each one of us with love!
In the original Hebrew text, the word ‘fearfully’ means: with great reverence, heart-felt interest, and respect. The word ‘wonderfully’ means: unique, set apart, uniquely marvelous. According to this Scripture, every single one of us is .... truly a Master Piece! He takes time with love and leads each of us down a path (that we might not have chosen) to form a life quilt. Each piece is put together to tell our own story.
What kind of “life-quilt” do you think you are creating?
Prayer: God, Thank you for reminding us that, like a quilt, that each of us was made with great reverence, heart-felt interest, and respect; each one of us unique, set apart, uniquely marvelous... that You see each of us as a Masterpiece. Thank you for reminding us that even without world riches and the worst times strike, You are always there. Help us to create our “masterpiece quilt” with You included. Amen.
