Psalm 27:13 (CEB)
13 But I have sure faith that I will experience the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!
Some months ago I embarked upon this incredible quest to consciously and more actively help others. Being able to spend copious amounts time doing something I enjoy such as the of changing balls of yarn into hats and scarves was and is an added blessing.
Wait, now how exactly does that translate into stitches in faith? Well, I believe that God blesses us when we help those in need, as listed in Matthew 25:40 – ‘I assure you that when you have done it for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me.’ I was already knitting, a lot, but it lacked a truer more useful purpose. With the realization of purpose came the growth and testing of my faith. I believed God would send yarn and knitted goods so I opened a post office box and put out the word! Admittedly, self-promotion or promotion in general is NOT my gift, after all for the most part, I am shy.
Imagine my sheer delight when I received not one, but two separate donations! My glee was barely controlled. The needles never stopped. I prayed for eager helpers and found two sitting right under my nose! Bored students with time on their hands have been my angels.
Last night digging through the slowly dwindling yarn stash trying to cobble together enough yarn colors to make even more items, my prayers began anew, “Lord, please send more yarn and soon! The nights are getting colder and the need to meet the need of others has not diminished!!! I thank God daily for the heart of a servant who desires nothing more than to do the will of my Master and lead others into glorious relationship with Him!
Making His praise glorious!
