Providence: Your story is weaved into something bigger than you

A while ago I wrote a song and put it in a drawer and forgot about it. One day it dawned on me that this song was in the voice of a woman. I had the picture of tapestry, of an artist weaving a single thread that makes its mark by how it is thread through the fabric of history. Providence is like this thread. We cannot see the whole picture, but the grand design and fabric might make sense if seen. Often, we will not see on this side of heaven the entire piece of art. However, we can still be connected to the mystery and have security in the fact that there is a plan and that the plan is working both in our personal favor and in the favor or humankind. The good news is that Jesus, the crucified man on the cross unveiled with his act the mystery. God wore and wears our human skin. He loves us, that much. Love wins!

PROVIDENCE

I’m just a stitch in God’s tapestry Through the marking of passing time I’m being weaved in history. With providence it all makes sense.  With Providence it all makes sense.

A scarlet thread, the redeemer’s plan. We see a holy and loving God, simply reaching out his hand. With Providence it all makes sense.  With Providence it all makes sense.

Nations will rise, nations will fall. Kings will come and kings will go. But, one thing’s for certain. All of history will show the simple fact, our God is in control. Our God is in control

When trials come, why be tattered by our fears. The choice is our to trust a God who keeps and counts our tears. With Providence it all makes sense.  With Providence it all makes sense.

Nations will rise, nations will fall. Kings will come and kings will go. But, one thing’s for certain. All of history will show the simple fact, our God is in control. Our God is in control.

Unraveled lives, desperate people make their plea.  Adjusting to God’s grand design means no guarantees.  I walk by faith and not by sight.  And, as I take each step I see the face of Christ.

Nations will rise, nations will fall. Kings will come and kings will go. But, one thing’s for certain. All of history will show the simple fact, our God is in control. Our God is in control.
