Are Your Seams Showing?

Women my age will all remember the time of seams in the stockings. There were no panty hose back then. We all  wore stockings with seams, and you always wanted to make sure the seams were straight, when you went out.

Today, you will find that 'seams' are coming back. Oh, I'm not speaking of the seams in women's stockings, but in the clothes.  I've been guilty of telling my grandchildren that they have their shirt on inside out. I was wrong! Seems that the clothing was made to look like that.  The edges of the cut material has a finish stitching on each piece, then it's sewn inside out - the outside looking like it should be the inside.  Not my taste in clothing at all!

Are your 'spiritual seams' showing?  Do you have leftover scars from a bad marriage, a bad upbringing, abuse, or maybe even from the church?  Do you feel like you are coming apart at the seams, and losing out on life? Do you feel like you have been turned inside out from things that have happened in your life, and the worry of every day problems?  If you are troubled in your soul, down on your luck, feeling bad toward yourself, then there is help.  Jesus is "the way, the truth, and the life. " John 14:6

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
