“I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything, there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery!“ (Colossians 2:2-3)
This truth stuns me. Without intentionality, I have spent years of my life searching for love, acceptance, and approval. My self-confidence was on a lifetime sabbatical and real rest was a far off fairy tale.
However, woven into the intricate fabric of my DNA a core need for meaningful relationships exists. I believed “it was up to me” to make that happen. For example —-I believed if I had “the guy” then I was loved. Yet incompleteness haunted my soul. Nothing quite measured up. THEN something drastic happened. I experienced the love of God. I did not just hear a lot of facts about Him and check off my church box once a week; NO. I opened up my restless “do it yourself” heart and invited this “Source of Love” into my world. He was already reaching for me and this time I grabbed hold.
To look back now and see the stunning breathtaking “tapestry of love” He has woven through my life is PROFOUND! To be truly loved without arranging it- WOW! To be confident and clearly see my confidence has nothing to do with me and everything to do with Him- WOW! To experience real “rest”; not “take a nap” rest, but a restful heart in the middle of my chaos- WOW! And, for the first time, to feel complete – in Him- WOW WOW! It is truly a mystery. And it is wildly beautiful. He unveils my true beauty- from the inside – out. He sets me in relationships with profound belonging. He awakens, heals, and frees my heart to live Fully Alive.
When we are woven into something it becomes the very fabric of our being. How awesome is that?
This is not just for me. This is for you too. Will you allow His love to be woven into the tapestry of your life? His love has no limits. You just have to receive it. Then your mind will be confident, at rest, and focused on Christ.
Hallelujah Darling Friend- you are so LOVED!
