Just Wait and See!!!

Psalm 27:14New International Version (NIV)

14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

For the last few months I have been on a shawl knitting kick. These to me have become hugs around the shoulders and necks of the recipients. 

My latest project has been the Ambrosial Flash Dance Shawl/Shawlette by Pam Jemelian the picture is beautiful and for two weeks I have been working away.  Questioning my ability every 10 rows, fretting over whether I should frog it or not.

The tumble of thoughts and comments persist, “…it doesn’t look like the picture” “why did I think I could do this?”  “Maybe it is time to move on to another project.”  Defeating self-talk all!

Each and every one of us is a work in progress!  God is molding, hammering and chiseling at us each and every day.  Word by word, deed by deed and stitch by stitch.  Each designer knows exactly how the final product should look and if each pattern is followed precisely a duplicate will evolve.

Lacking perfection but not an enthusiastic desire, my confidence like the tide ebbs and flows.  It is in these moments that I remind myself to wait on the Lord, only He knows the beginning and the end.  Patience in the outcome is not my job but a very important part of the journey.  They are called prayer shawls for a reason, each stitch is a prayerful reminder that God is in the business of details!

Thanking God today for the willingness to create in imperfection so that His perfect work can be done!

Making His praise glorious!
