It has been said by someone else that each believer is but one thread in a Grand Tapestry that is being woven throughout time by the very hand of God Himself.
Believers represent a multitude of colored threads that have been CROSS Stitched together with the one Crimson colored thread of the Lord Jesus Christ…forming a living tapestry of people who are eternal and will never die.
The embroidered story of our lives represents bitterness, sweetness; times when prayers go unanswered and we must trust in patience as we wait on the Lord. There are times of great sorrow and of great joy and worship of the Living God all woven together to tell our story.
But then something else happens. God takes our thread and weaves it to create touch points with the threads of other people and then He CROSS Stitches the Crimson thread of His Son around two people at the same time.
These times in my life have been few, but when they happen my heart grows warm within me and I feel inexpressible joy. God weaves me together with another believer or a person who is a True Seeker of Christ forming a moment in time that is precious beyond words.
It is here that I have an opportunity to strengthen the faith of someone, or to defend the name of Jesus. It is a God Moment in time where I am humbled to hear the story of another believer and how the Lord Jesus carries their Cross for them and they still through all the pain can have JOY in the Morning.
God Moments happen when we share the story of our storms in life and realize HE is always with us. God Moments happen when Jesus becomes so real to us that our walk by Faith almost becomes a walk by sight…we can FEEL HIS Presence.
This living tapestry we are members of in Christ is difficult to visualize. From our perspective at best all we see are the threads from underneath the tapestry. We cannot see the grandeur of the story being woven above.
So life gets the best of us more often than not in our journey of faith. We get disappointed; the brightness of our hope grows faint as we continue to look through a mirror dimly.
But then when we need it most, because He loves us and understands our needs…He CROSS Stitches two threads that believe in HIM with His Own Crimson thread. Then the Scriptures become real again, because we can feel His Presence as He said…”For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
As I said these God Moments of True Reality and clarity of Mind, Soul, Heart and Purpose have been rare. When they do happen Heaven melts into Earth, my Spiritual senses become heightened within me and I feel the touch of the Masters Hand…and am humbled.
