The Bigger Picture

Afghan cloudsI left counseling a few weeks ago feeling pensive and vulnerable, having just delved deeper into some past hurt.

And so I was praying as I was driving, feeling especially emotional, when I noticed a unique cloud formation.  The more I looked (cautiously, since I was driving), the more I realized that it looked like a crocheted pattern on an afghan.

That’s when He said it.  “Serena, you’re focusing on one small part of the afghan of your life.  I’ve made the whole thing beautiful.” 


We can’t see the bigger picture as clearly as He can.  So sometimes He gently reminds us…with cloud formations.
