I have never been one who knits or crochets or darns. My mother crocheted beautiful afghans and delightful baby garments. When I think of her, sometimes it's her hands that I see, holding two colorful knitting needles, wrapping, twisting.
We know that God knits. Psalm 139 tells us that He knit us together in the secret place before we were born. He is a knitter and a potter and probably also one who darns, because I know He is a "mender!" This morning I received a word from Robert Heidler (Glory of Zion) that was like water to my thirsty soul. Heidler had heard this from the Lord: " I am re-knitting your emotions. Fragmentation that you have experienced in the last season should not keep you from experiencing my wholeness in your future. The re-knitting of your emotions and re-aligning of your desires will set my motion in you. This will direct your feet from wrong ways and cause you to see the signs for your right path. Do not resist the needle of mending!"
I share this with all of you because I feel certain there must be others who have been trudging through a season of fragmentation. To me, it feels like everything was just fragmenting and fragmenting until there was nothing left of the ministries I joyfully soared in. So now there are holes that need to be mended. Empty places that need patching. Out-of-control emotions that need to be re-knit by the steady hands of the Creator.
We are clay in the Potter's hand but we are also yarn in the Knitter's hand and I for one am so grateful to know that He can take His needles and re-knit me together, re-aligning me according to HIS desires. Perhaps this is a new way to look at these days of counting the Omer. The process is often painful, but just to know that soon my heart won't have all these holes anymore and I will be useful again to my Father, the pain is worth it. I will not resist Your needle of mending, Abba! You choose the colors of the yarn and you pick the pattern.
