“We look at life from the back side of the tapestry. And most of the time, what we see is loose threads, tangled knots and the like. But occasionally, God’s light shines through the tapestry, and we get a glimpse of the larger design with God weaving together the darks and lights of existence.” – John Piper
In the dailyness of living, glimpses of light enter to remind us that beyond our efforts, circumstances and struggles, grace is ever present. In the unknown and mystery, there is an unfolding, becoming and assembling. Beauty in the order and in the mess. A gift to be opened, not figured out.
Beyond the doing, the hustling, the calculations, the planning, the striving, the wrestling, we are held by grace, buoyed, carried. Take the next step, keep going and allow grace in. Pay attention, listen for the whisper, be held.
“There is a design behind the world that we are living in, which is veiled to most of us most of the time, but every once in a while, you catch a glimpse of it.” – Mark Frost
