What’s Happening

Life is but a weaving (the Tapestry Poem)  Corrie Ten Boom


My life is but a weaving

Between my God and me.

I cannot choose the colours
He weaveth steadily.

 

Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

 Not ’til the loom is silent

And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal the reason why.


The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned

 

He knows, He loves, He cares;
Nothing this truth can dim.
He gives the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.

 

‘Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for a future that only He can see’. (Corrie Ten Boom: The Hiding Place)
