Pot holder

I’ve been working on this all day.

It went to the Allergist office with me this morning.

I had just begun one side.

It went to Michaels craft store, as I was not going to be able to finish it without more yarn.

It’s been on my lap during Math and Science.

I worked on it while taking lunch break.

Just now, I finished it.

I’ve never made one before, but I’m happy with the results.

Because it’s not about the time or energy it took, it’s about the love.

I have every intension of giving this away.

Hopefully, with another exactly like it.

As I was praying for someone yesterday, the Lord mentioned my yarn box.

I opened it, wondering what He was leading me to.

When my eyes fell on the cotton yarn, His voice spoke.

Make her a pot holder.

Of course, I was hesitant.

But thankfully, I didn’t argue.

My day didn’t allow for me to start the project, so I simply prayed about it.

This morning God brought it to mind again.

And now I can praise Him, for it is finished.

I’m always amazed at how He uses small things to teach me large ones.

Like making this simple gift for someone I love.

The time, energy, and prayer I put into this was all a joy, because of my love for the person who will receive it.

As I reflected on my joy in doing for another, my heart took another step toward the Lord, for He is always at work upon my behalf.

And His work is simply a proof of His love.

Both are unmeasurable.

My heart swells with the thought.

I deserve none of this and yet He loves me.

And the lesson came from a day crocheting a gift.

Which He told me to make.


Praise God.

I’m so thankful for so many things.

I’m grateful He taught me how to do this.

I’m blessed with the ability to move my fingers and create something.

I’m thankful for His heart that shows me how loving and steadfast He is.

Truly, what a blessing it is to serve the Almighty God!

Hebrews 12:28 KJV — Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

God is love


It’s often misunderstood and misrepresented.

It’s been used to buy and sell.

It’s been tainted and tarnished in every way possible.

All because true love comes only from God.

Man without God can’t truly understand love.

Although it’s poured out on us daily by our heavenly Father.

Romans 5:8 NKJV — But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Praise God for His love which brought Jesus to the World, that He might demonstrate love.

John 15:9 NKJV — “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.

Through Jesus, through God’s Holy Word, through the Holy Spirit’s teachings, we can find true love.

We can also learn how to love.

Infact the Bible is so full of what true love is, the definition becomes clear.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8a NKJV — Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 

And this is only one portion of the many, many passages which teach us what love is.

God’s love becomes a gift to share as we ourselves understand and daily accept it.

Through personal, one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ each of us can not only experience true love daily, we can give it freely.

Because God is love.

He already loves each and every single one of us.

I’m learning, each day, a new way to see God’s love and prayerfully, new ways to share it.

I hope you are as well.
