Learn to Knit

Learn to Knit (Photo credit: abbynormy)

12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”  Exodus 4:12 (NIV)

Someone actually asked ME to teach them how to knit!  No, I did not laugh or giggle, though I wanted to,  did not offer the excuse “but I am just learning” or look for the hidden camera to see if it was a joke. I just said ok, provided a small list of getting started supplies and watched as many of the learning to knit videos I could to refresh my memory so that when and if the time came, I would be ready.

Well that day came and my first surprise was the pupil arrived.  Not only arrived but  prepared with needles and 3 skeins of yarn, so we began, with a slip knot.  For those who grew up and were fortunate to have Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts or lived around outdoorsmen we take it for granted that everybody can do a slip knot, which is not true. So the first lesson was this basic knot was repeated over and over, patiently again and again until it was mastered.   Oh and my other challenge, that I found out during the first lesson, this pupil unlike me, is left-handed. God always provides moments when the instructor has to not only has to remember what it was like to get those basics down until they felt natural but also must learn to do things in different way so that others  can learn in a way that is comfortable for them.  Everytime it feels  I still have so much to learn, God reminds me that a willingness to share what little I know more will always be given to me because He knows and sees everything!

6 He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the LORD. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.It  has been a little over a year since I picked up knitting needles and began this journey of knitting with God.  As I was reading Jeremiah and re-reading the story of the piece misshapen in the Potter’ hand I thought back on my year of projects.  Jeremiah 18:6 (NIV)

I, an acknowledged, novice somehow neglected to check my gauge in the early days, ok it is still a problem, and as a result there was more than one odd-shaped, twisted, gaped piece that should have never seen the light of day.  In the beginning the idea of taking it apart, after hours and days of diligent work was unimaginable.  What a difference mere months made.

I might bind off to the last stitch, but if it is wrong, it is wrong it is wrong and out comes the ball wonder.  More than once in my life I have been that imperfect work in the Potter’s hands, how thankful I am that He takes the time to make me over and over, and over again.

Making His praise glorious!
