There is a saying, “You cannot see the forest for the trees.” In life, it is not always easy to understand why things happen as they do. We have heard before that God works in mysterious ways. Oftentimes in life, things happen that seem unexplainable. We may find ourselves wondering why bad things happen to good people. We may find ourselves doubting our life and the Universe. We may wonder when the good will finally come to us from all the good we have done. We may even find ourselves experiencing great difficulties for seemingly no reason at all. In these moments, I like to remind myself that life is like a beautiful tapestry. Up close, we see a disarray of color and patterns creating an unpleasant and disordered image. But when the tapestry is hung on the wall and we step back, we can at last see the beautiful image concealed from us the whole time. Life is just like this tapestry. We may find ourselves meeting and knowing myriads of people all of which seem random and meaningless. We find ourselves a part of an endless number of experiences, good and bad, that may offer us, at the time, no reason. But, if we are willing to, we can look back on our own past, and I bet, if we try, we can see how everything we experienced had purpose. We can see why the events unfolded in our lives the way they did. When we zoom out, we can see the divine orchestration in every thread of our lives.
