Recently I attended a Police zoom Prayer Meeting where only one other person was able to attend. We had a very special time together. We had only met each other once before. I was intrigued by what seemed to be a tea towel hanging up in the distance behind her (she was sitting in her kitchen).
We spent precious chatting time together and we Prayed about those things that were on our minds. Eventually, because it so intrigued me, I asked about the “tea towel”. My friend turned around, looked at what I could see, stood up and removed it from her fridge. It was a blank sheet of green paper with small slits in it and narrow sheets of red paper had been woven in between these slits. Her Daughter had created it and as ever had brought it home and it was now on display. I have continued to think about that beautiful yet so simple piece of art work. I did at the time express to her Mum, that there would not be another one in the world quite like that.
My thoughts went on… You and I are like that, we are a one off, each one of us totally different to everyone else.
Ephesians 2 verse 4 – 20:
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you.”
That is indeed my Prayer for you today. No matter how flimsy and ineffective you may feel, you are God’s Valued Child in this world today. As my friend’s Daughter’s creation caught my eye, so will others around you be aware of you and want to know you.
