At that time I wanted a wool cutter that bad. God in His Mercy told me no to what I wanted and as I knew in the deepest part of my soul, I could very easy forsake all I cared about, just like Gomer, for wool.
I gave that up and decided that I would wait for God and if He never wanted me to hook a rug again I wouldn't. I boxed up that dream and put it away. I went on with life. Then as you know a wonderful friend,
in God's time gave me more wool than I had ever seen, backing to make rugs a wool cutter and things to get me started. I sat on the ground as I opened the box and wept over that wool, every time I use my cutter I am reminded of how good God is and why it is so much better to wait on Him.
( The Shaping of the Christian Family, p. 89)
I have time to think and when I was in a frenzied pace it was easy to ignore what weeds were cropping in my life. Now, I have to be pulling up the wrong thinking I have been doing in my life by the roots. Someday, I will learn.
Have a great Wednesday. Thank you for stopping by today.
