The colors are blurred
Only chaos we see
As dark threads are woven
With our heartache and grief.
“Trust me,” you say
“With the story that’s unfolding
Though it’s impossible to see
The masterpiece I’m weaving.”
But, Lord, your ways are mysterious
And your hand hard to trace
These aren’t the colors we prayed for
Only dark colors in their place.
“Stop striving, my child
To make sense of what you see
Trust the hand of the Weaver
For faithful I will be.
Behind the choas of this tapestry
There’s more than meets the eye
You don’t need to know the answers
Only in me you must abide.
One day you will see
My love in every thread
Purposeful and perfect
Each moment that I’ve led.
The day will surely come
When you’ll see the beautifully woven story
In awe and joy you’ll see
A tapestry of my glory.”

I'm a stay-at-home mom of 4 kids under 14 and have been continually learning in deeper ways what it means to follow Jesus Christ - no matter the cost. I'm the co-author or Hope When It Hurts: Biblical Reflections to Help Your Grasp God's Purpose in Your Suffering, Together Through the Storms: Biblical Encouragements For Your Marriage When Life Hurts, and a forthcoming evangelistic book on God's compassion and mercy in our sufferings (April 2022).
My husband and I have been given the unique calling of raising a child with some very challenging needs, as well as 5 of us battling Lyme Disease. Some days, it seems as though the burdens that we carry will destroy our family. However, as we seek Christ and learn to lean on Him through every struggle, we are being strengthened, molded, and learning to be more satisfied in him alone. I am learning deep truth's of God's Word and hope to encourage and challenge others through what He has been teaching my family and me through this valley. May he alone be glorified in and through my words.
