A lot of sock patterns, while you're making the heel, will tell you just to trust the pattern. It's funny, because once the heel is done, it looks just like it should. But while I was knitting, I was a bit skeptical. I really think this is a lot like my life. God just tells me to trust, because he knows what the finished product will look like, and how to get there. But I can only see the one step, and not the big picture, so it's hard for me to trust without knowing for sure that the finished product will make sense. I feel like this is a good thing for me to remember next time I feel like I'm not sure what God is doing, and I'm facing an Everest. (Which is fairly regularly.) If a sock pattern turns out, how much more will God's plans for our life turn out?
