A woman once visited a weaver’s school, where the students were making beautiful patterns. She asked, “When you make a mistake, must you cut it out and start from the beginning?”
“No,” said one of the students. “Our teacher is such a great artist that when we make a mistake, he uses it to improve the beauty of the pattern.”
This is what the Lord does with our mistakes. He is a skillful weaver. He is the greatest artist, but we must surrender our blunders to the Lord. When we do, He can use them to make the pattern of our lives more beautiful.
Can you recall a time when you didn’t make the best choice, yet, somehow, someway, God was able to use it to “improve the beauty of your life’s pattern?”
Write about it in your journal and be reminded of the mercy, wisdom and awesomeness of God.
