“In repentance and rest you will be saved,
In quietness and trust is your strength” (Isaiah 30:15)
Mohair is a beautiful yarn – on its own or double stranded. Mohair is gentle, delicate, warm – and thin. I’ve had days lately where I’ve felt like a thin strand of mohair – come upon a knot.
Spinning my own yarn; walking my own story.
Sometimes this yarn I spin is like bulky wool. Knots that happen are easy enough to unravel, to work out.
There’s no undoing a knot in mohair, though.
My story has stretched me thin lately, mohair thin – and the knots, they’re beyond anything I can do.
In myself, I’m mohair thin.
I was designed to be double-stranded with God.
Spinning my own yarn; walking my own story
God can . . . unravel the mohair knots in my story, unravel and leave my heart llama warm – and I can pull my yarn on into the next stitch of this story I’m working.
This last week, God unraveled a nest of knots.
Knot – A car-load of people I love learned that
God makes a way in a traffic jam, even when
there’s no logical way out
Knot – Someone in authority wasn’t willing to open a can of worms
until someone else was
relief and solution spilled out
Knot – Someone saw truth and stood up for it
knit, slip a stitch
knot, knot, knot
knit two together, pearl
knot, knot, knot
This week found hands on shoulders in a circle
young and old
praying for God to unravel
either we make, others make
or just-happen knots
There’s no wrong-side of a knot
when we take it to God
Spinning my yarn; walking my story
the sweet aroma of praise
in a hard moment hallelujah
for the lord God almighty reigns
and his name is like honey on my lips
water to my soul
a lamp unto my feet
the knot unraveler
in a world of cannots
