O, Lord God, thou knowest.

God's Handiwork

In a book by Max Lucado entitled "Come Thirsty", I came across the following I'd like to share related to the power of God's love in our lives.  In his book, he tells a story of fishermen eating at a seaside inn sharing stories of great catches.  During the story telling, one of the men's arms caught in the serving maid's tea tray and sent the teapot flying, scattering brown tea stain all over the white wall of the inn.  A stranger who happened to be a famous painter of wildlife offered to work with the stain, and ended up painting a picture of a stag with a great rack of antlers on the wall.  The stain blended beautifully with the design.

The point here, is shown best by a quote from Max Lucado's book:

God's hands do the same, over and over.  He draws together the disjointed blotches in our life and renders them an expression of His love.  We become pictures: "examples of the incredible wealth of his favor and kindness toward us" (Eph 2:7).
