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.” 

*tears.

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