“Yet through all, we know this tangled skein is in the hands of One who sees the end from the beginning; He shall yet unravel all.
Alexander Smith

“Remember the former things of old, for I am God and there is no other.
I am God and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done.”
Isaiah 46:9-10

Have you ever had a long rope that was all knotted up? How about a garden hose that wouldn’t untangle? Maybe it was a long electrical cord with many knots and kinks in it. All you can do at times is sit down and find a loose end and begin to thread it back through. For many years I did tree work, and as a climber I had to take very good care of my ropes. Seventy feet up in a tree is no place to run into a knot or kink. When I came across the quote from Alexander Smith I was reminded of a long rope with many tangles and knots. At times this life seems like a tangled skein of yarn in which no one can untangle it. Only God who has put it all together can gently take the knots out, not pulling on them to make them tighter. I don’t know how life gets so tangled up at times. I can be going along so smooth, and then all of a sudden there it is, a big mess of everything crossing over, running through, and tying me down. I know that God always see the end and will unravel it all. Until then I have to trust and try and not to pull to tight one way or another to make it worse. Some knots if you don’t pull on them too tight, just take care of themselves. How grateful I am to know that God knows the end from the beginning, and cares how I take each step. God is doing for me what I could not do for myself…………………wolf

        I wrote this is 2006, wanted to share again. In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and he was God. He was in the beginning with God. He created everything there is. Nothing... more
