There's nothing extra special about it, but I always think it's amazing nice when visions or dreams actually become reality - because we know that they do. ""As a man thinkth, so shall it be" (the Holy Bible); and "if you can conceive it, and believe it, you can achieve it" (Napoleon Hill I think). (Probably got that one a little twisted, but I'm sure you know what I mean.) I finished the purple skirt last night, and it became my first sewing project of the New Year. It was part of my simple vision come true outfit from way back in August. The memory triggered about the skirt/outfit were actually these Bible verses:
- Exodus 13:12 That thou shalt set apart unto the LORD all that openeth the matrix...,
- and Exodus 34:19 All that openeth the matrix is mine...
My next thought was whether my work was worthy/perfect enough to dedicate to God. But then nothing I could give will ever be worthy or perfect enough. I think what matters most is that whatever we dedicate is already his (Exodus 34:19), but He wants us to return it to Him.
The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. Deuteronomy 28:12 NIV
Then the LORD your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands... Deuteronomy 30:9 NIV
Alright, enough preaching for today. Here's the outfit, the first one (sewing project )through the matrix for me of the New Year.
Although not perfect, I'm praying that God will bless the works of my hands all through the year!!!
