Peace family, when was the last time you’ve worked on a long-standing project that was well worth it?
I haven’t been able to talk about it on this blog or on the air, because it’s been a surprise, but for more than a year, I’ve been working on a quilt for a friend as a high-school-graduation/going-to-college gift. It’s finally finished, and when I gave it to my friend, she loved it!
Peace family, this was a hard, expensive, time-consuming project. It took months to find and collect the right fabric; every piece of fabric refers to a special memory from my friendship with my friend. I realized that my original pattern wouldn’t work with the fabric that I had, so I switched patterns and did a lot of math! Friends and acquaintances didn’t always understand the vision that I had for the quilt, and questioned my fabric choices. The second pattern that I used, I had to alter it for the size that I wanted. Then, it took weeks for me to cut out all of the fabric, and weeks to piece it together. There were also several other unforeseen obstacles, like the store running out of a specific kind of fabric I needed, which I then had to order off of the internet. I also had to rent a large, long-arm machine several times in order to do the quilting, and it wasn’t always available. Plus, during one of my sessions, a lightning storm knocked a tree over onto the store’s power-line, and cut off all of the electricity!
So, what am I saying with all of this? We all have ongoing, long-term projects in our lives, and other people don’t always see the value of them. Many of our projects are costly and involve sacrifices and discomfort. Some of our projects delight us most of the time, but frustrate or discourage us at other times. Don’t give up! So many large, difficult projects are so worth it!
What long-term projects are you working on right now? As one worker to another, I can tell you, “Eventually, it will get finished!” Enjoy it, be faithful, and keep up the good work, Peace family!
“But they could not stand up against the wisdom the Spirit gave him as he spoke.” —Acts 6:10
Peace family, do you ever feel isolated? Are you feeling alone right now?
I think we all feel isolated sometimes. We start to wonder why we bother sharing our hearts or troubles because no one seems to care. We start to feel like we don’t matter to anyone. We grow tired and bitter about super friendly people who tell us they’d love to have coffee or hang out, but then never respond to any of our multiple texts or calls.
Peace family, are you going through any of those things right now? Do any of them sound familiar?
Maybe you feel isolated in your family; maybe you have different values from them, and they look down on you.
Maybe you feel isolated at your job or school; it seems like everyone else is on the inside track, included in the jokes and activities, but you feel pushed to the outside.
Maybe you feel isolated at your church; everyone has their own problems so you don’t want to share yours, you feel like you don’t measure up in some way or look put-together enough, most people don’t notice when you’re missing, or they shut you out if you open up to share your pain and brokenness.
Maybe you feel isolated socially. Whether because of your work or school schedule, the season of life that you are in, your culture, or a problem or disability, you feel unable to connect with friends on a deep level, or possibly unable to connect on any level. Maybe you’re new to town and have had trouble meeting anyone.
If you feel any or all of these kinds of isolation, please, do not despair. You are not alone. Our God is a friend to the friendless, a father to the orphan, and a comforter to the widowed. God loves you, even if it’s hard to feel his love through other people right now. Don’t give up on reaching out or meeting people, even though it takes energy. If there aren’t people to talk with right now, talk to God. I am praying for you right now, Peace Family! Know that you’re not alone, and you are loved!
