L.I.W. – Abandon (I)

“His design for you is the best thing He has for you. Let God hold the threads so that you will someday see the beauty and the marvel he had in mind when He created you. … If you fail to find this design, the biggest price you may pay is your children or those who look to you as an example. As you let God’s design be worked out in you, you will see its impact in others and for generations. Let the tapestry show its beauty. Shun the threadbare existence. God holds the threads; you hold the shuttle. Move it at God’s behest, and watch the making of something spectacular.” (The Grand Weaver, Ravi Zacharias)

Lyrics

What holds us back? Maybe not fully believing that God intends only the best for us. Not fully believing He will go the distance with us. Not fully believing He knows.

But He is perfect in every way – and that includes His plans & purposes. And He is trustworthy & faithful.

Listen with new ears, see with new eyes – understand the reality of a fullness that comes from being emptied.
