The Weaver

Fern fronds

He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 8:27-28 (MSG)

The Weaver

My life is but a weaving,
between my God and me.
I do not choose the colors,
He worketh steadily.

Offtimes 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 explain 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.
