is but a weaving (the Tapestry Poem)
Corrie Ten Boom
My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
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
He knows, He loves, He cares;
‘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)
