Sometimes my finished projects make it to Etsy. Other times I give them away.
My yarn basket shows that I am a person of many interests who has trouble dedicating myself to one task. Can God use my yarn basket to help me grow?
Proverbs 3: 5 and 6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not upon your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.”
I am learning that when I dive into too many projects at once, I am getting ahead of God and leaning on my own understanding. When this happens, I have too many unfinished projects and a rat’s nest of a yarn basket. When I concentrate on what the Lord wants, I am more productive. I am more at rest and happy.
In everything we do, our mind should be set on pleasing Christ. If we do this, he will show us what to do.
This makes me wonder what would my shop, and yarn basket, look like if my mind were set on Christ? How are you doing in this area? What does your particular craft or artwork say about you? What does it say about Christ’s influence in your life?
