When you hear the words “duct tape,” you probably don’t think of something as cute as a hair bow, but at the school where I teach girls are making cute fashion designs with assorted colors and styles of this heavy-duty hardware supply.
As I was looking at some of their creations the other day, I thought to myself, “If humans can take something like duct-tape and create something cute and useful, why are we surprised when the Bible says that God makes all things beautiful in His time?” God longs to take every practical part of us and use it for His glory.
Yesterday, Olivia had a good first day at my school. The girls welcomed her with open arms and the teachers embraced her with love. It was a hard day in some ways. She was nervous about the new schedule, the new work. Shew……….what a journey this has been.
By the end of the day, she had made some new little friends that I know will be a blessing for these last six weeks of school.
God is going to turn a duct-tape kind-of spring into a beautiful hair bow for Olivia, and I am thankful.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
If you feel like you are in a duct-tape season, remember this promise.
We are waiting, trusting, and learning as we continue to cling to Him for our daily strength.
Praying for you today as you do the same.
Thank you again for every prayer.
I love you all so much,
