If I were to Remake my Lifestyle . . .

         If I were to remake my lifestyle, I would make it – even just a little bit – like “Mother Theresa.” She lives a simple life but full of passion , making a difference, and reaching out the world for the Lord (that’s why a trial for her was a joy). She absorbs other people’s pain, feels it and makes it her own.  She shows the world  what’s all about  God’s unconditional love through her touch of passion in caring God’s creation.

         The best part is, she puts into action God’s  love everywhere – from her hometown to the suburbs of  neighboring nations and to the uttermost part of the world. She travels, affects people and manifests God’s love to everyone she meets.  She transforms lives and fervently  pray for them and delivers to them the service that none other can compete. 

        We have our own deliverables to God. Each one is destined to be distinctly different from one another. In fact, the blue – print of our life has already been laid down  through our experiences and trials, for us to realize and know that God is our planner, our engineer, and our architect.  We are here to carefully follow the plan.  

         May I share Corrie ten Boom’s  tapestry poem:

“Life is but a Weaving” (the Tapestry Poem)

“My life is but a weaving                           The dark threads are as needful
Between my God and me.                          In the weaver’s skillful hand
I cannot choose the colors                          As the threads of gold and silver
He weaveth steadily.                                   In the pattern He has planned

Often times He weaveth sorrow;                   He knows, He loves, He cares;
And I in foolish pride                                  Nothing this truth can dim.
Forget He sees the upper                             He gives the very best to those
And I the underside.                                    Who leave the choice to Him.”

Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas                                   -
Corrie ten Boom-
And reveal the reason why.
