Origin of Being Woven
The title of this blog stems from my years of actually weaving with homespun and dyed wool, a craft I learned in the 70s. As I became more and more proficient, I can honestly say that it is an art for me.
I am ‘being woven’ daily. I am growing in the LORD. I am learning from my Savior. I am truly loving each step, too. When I say I am being woven, God created me in His love, in His perfection. For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13 NASB (Other versions use ‘cover’, ‘covered’, ‘knit’, or ‘knitted’ in place of ‘wove’.)
Have you looked at a weaving up close? The warp is taut on the frame. The woof or yarns are woven over and under each warp, row upon row until the piece is complete. Looking at the back makes me wonder if I could possibly know what I am doing. Loose end are hanging everywhere, yet the front is beautiful. How does God see me? From the front? Do I see myself from the back? God knows me and knows what areas where I need work. I may look more like the back today, yet in eternity, will I be as the front? Perfected in Christ Jesus? I believe so. Oh, how marvelous!
Because I am human, I am ever-needing God’s hand to become all that He created me to be. I am being woven by God with each step. He teaches me through trials and tribulations. He encourages me through joy and sorrow. He holds me through pain and comfort. He guides me toward Himself. He loves me no matter how I look or act because I am His through His Son. I confessed my sins, repenting and acknowledging who I was before I said, “Yes, LORD, I am Yours. Please allow me the privilege of having Your Holy Spirit dwell within me. I desire to walk in Your Way and follow You. I am not perfect here on earth. I am the back of that weaving. Yet, I am being woven, hopefully, not by my own hands, but by Yours.”
Hallelujah! I am allowing Him to take each woof, weave it over and under each warp until I am done, until this life is complete. Then I shall stand before my King in His perfection. Oh my!
