Our wills get tangled up in God’s ways.
Our ambitions get wrapped around the Lord’s divine guidance.
Our ways cloak themselves in god-like manners.
Our lives ~ a beautiful mess. Wrapped up in ourselves. Tangled.
The Father’s hand, unwinds our hearts and quiets our souls.
Aims us in the direction of His way ~ grace. Until we wind up – wrap around and find ourselves, once again, tangled.
As time goes by, we learn to welcome the hand that frees us. We’ve been here before.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
“Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” Psalm86:11
