“Knitted Together”

I recently saw an image taken by a friend, the title “knitted together” spoke to my heart. In Psalm 139:13-14 it reads “For you created my innermost being; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful.”

I am grateful for these words I need right now in this time. After being sick for so long, feeling broken, and somewhat worthless, I am reminded that I am wonderfully made. I was knitted together by God, He has made me, perfect for His purpose. Not mine. My intentions for myself are always far more demanding than His plan for me. 1Peter 4:11 reads “If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power…” God’s strength, not mine. God’s plan, not mine. God’s will, not mine.

A new pastor spoke at church this week. He spoke about looking at our reflection, and seeing. Listening and hearing God’s word and purpose for us. That there was no regret when walking out God’s plan. God’s plan, not mine.

Over the last 2 weeks, I have been filled with self-doubt, regret for not being able to care for my children the way I felt they needed to be cared for because I am sick. And I see Linda’s picture. Knitted Together. God has knitted me together, He has knitted me together with my family as well. He has brought me together with people that He has placed in my life. People He is using in my life, to help me. He knitted my heart together with Kevin’s, so that I am not alone in caring for my children. So in this time when I am not well, my children are cared for, not in my way, but in God’s way. I am cared for and healing, not in my time, but in God’s time. In seeing Linda’s picture, my strength is renewed, not on my own, but through Christ.

Thank you, Linda.
