I was listening to UCB, a christian radio, a little while ago when I heard about God’s patchwork masterpiece. Basically someone went to heaven and had to sew the pieces of their life together. This guy, having finished, looked round and saw everyone else had the most amazing and beautiful pieces of cloth. Then looking at his he realized that it was full of holes and was ripped and ragged. After a while he was told that the reason his piece of cloth was so filled with holes because God was shining through.
So if you think that your life is filled with holes and cracks just remember, it is so God can shine through.
