As I began to use this yarn to create I began thinking of the psalm 139, and how God created us, knitting and weaving us together. I began to imagine that we were once just piles of sheeps roving, created in His likeness, the Lamb of God, and He picked up His spindle (or maybe sat at His spinning wheel!) and began to spin together our personalities, strengths, weaknesses, paths, likes and dislikes, our laughs the quiet giggles and the bust a gut almost peeing our pants roars of hysterics, the sound of our tears, etc, etc. Then carefully creating-knitting and weaving together each and every one of us! He never missed a stitch, He never made a mistake with any of us. He has His purpose and He made us beautifully for it. And when finished He sat back and took at look at us and went "TADA! Now this is a work of art! LOVE!"
Just sit back and think about it. He loves us all so much that He took the time to create us, and to love each and every single one of us. Sometimes His sheep go astray, no longer following Him
We're all like sheep who've wandered off and gotten lost.
We've all done our own thing, gone our own way.
And God has piled all our sins, everything we've done wrong,
on him, on him~Isaiah 53:6 (MSG)
He created us, and even when and He KNEW while He was knitting us together that we would wander off to another field to try the grass and see if it really is greener on the other side, He still wanted to die for each and every one of us.
Isaiah 48:17 “...I am the Lord, your God, who teaches you WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU, who directs you in the way you should go."
