The Master Weaver's Plan - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Many are the plans in a person's heart,
but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails

Proverbs 19: 21 New International Version (NIV)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~

Some writings are considered classics. They endure the test of time and are worth going back to and rereading time and again.
The poem The Master Weaver's Plan is a Christian classic.
So said Corrie ten Boom during her life.
She is a famous Dutch Evangelist during WW II, lives in Haarlem.
After the war, she has traveled a very lot to tell the world about God's Great Wonders she has got during these war times and

As Corrie ten Boom said:
As far as I know, the author of this poem is unknown.
Whoever wrote it has conveyed a reassuring message that has touched many hearts and lives through the years.
It has touched mine too.

I pray it will be a blessing to you today as you read it once again or discover it for the first time, Corrie ten Boom.

Corrie wrote that with much love, and so am I humbled and honored presenting this loveliest poem by Author Unknown, God's Blessings, Sylvia Frances Chan

CORRIE ten Boom's Favorite Quote:
I like the words here so much that I wanna let you know too,
please read, thank you.

The Master Weaver's Plan

My life is but a weaving
Between the Lord and me;
I may not choose the colors-
He knows what they should be.

For He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side
While I can see it only
On this, the underside.

Sometimes He weaves in sorrow,
Which seems so strange to me;
But I will trust His judgment
And work on faithfully.

‘Tis He who fills the shuttle,
And He knows what is best;
So I shall weave in earnest,
And leave to Him the rest.

Not 'til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needed
In the Weaver's skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern, He has planned.


Based upon research, have discovered that more than one person have been credited with authorship of this poem.
For now, have decided to list it as "author unknown" until there is further clarification. Thank you so much, Corrie ten Boom.

I only present this as Corrie ten Boom ever said during her life,
thank you so much, Sylvia Frances Chan
