This past Sunday, I was wearing pants and a pair of knee-highs that did have a run in them. I went ahead and wore them because time was of the essence, and figured they'd be fine for one more morning.
When I was standing and walking - the run was invisible. When I sat down and crossed my legs, it began to show.
I sat there and wondered how many of those we see every day are like that run. On the outside, we look put together and like we are fine, but underneath something is wrong. Something is unraveling.
Thoughts like this continued to come to my mind as I sat in church. I was fine with the small run in my hose for the morning - but unraveling in spirit or heart is something completely different.
I'm thankful that You can take my runs and make them whole again. You can keep me from unraveling and help me when I feel like I am. Please make me aware of those around me who may feel like they are unraveling beneath the surface. Give me a sensitivity to them and a willingness to reach out.
Thank You for being the great mender!
In Jesus' Name,
