my crooked lines

Tonight we were at a banquet, and my former pastor Mr. Wilson happened to be the keynote speaker. He, as he often does, used one of my favorite lines of his: God loves to draw straight with crooked lines.

And it made me wonder all over again: what is God drawing beautifully straight with the horribly crooked lines of my life?

I can’t wait until He gives me the perspective to see His masterpiece. Even if it isn’t until I join my sweet littles in heaven.

  1. Wow, what a wonderful thought! I know He is doing something beautiful with your lives and I pray that you will get to see the masterpiece soon.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I have been thinking similar thoughts lately and actually noticing that it is actually because of my “crooked lines” that I feel in some ways that I have an advantage. In many ways, I feel like God has broken any sense of control in my own life and there is something remarkably pure about that. I can’t understand your grieving, Melissa, but just wanted to say thanks for sharing your walk. I wait expectantly for how God continues to use your story to bless others.

  3. Oh Melissa, that is beautiful. I need to copy that quote and post it around my house where it reminds me that the trials I go through are perfectly planned. Praying for you too, my friend.
