This is a fun scarf story from a friend and loyal Dyed4you customer. She’d bought a 6×24 scarf for her 3 year old daughter and a fun story was birthed. Here it is:
The first thing I noticed was the colors – she loves blue and green, and these were so vibrant – very her!
As she was playing with it, it ended up on the floor near her potty (not as a wipe – LOL – just in proximity!) and I was struck how the color matched her potty. I found it intriguingly odd that her scarf matched her potty. That’s when the Lord began speaking…
Her speech was delayed (2.5 yrs old) and using the potty didn’t come until 2 weeks before her 3rd birthday, and both seemed like insurmountable struggles. Yet when she did learn it was an accelerated learning where as she progressed it was the miraculous hand of God everyday because of the rate of learning despite the fact that process itself had been delayed (many days for speech, and with the potty – it was literally in one day).
He was speaking to me that she is not delayed, she is right on time. That I was to stop comparing her to others (which was difficult because I am a clinical psychologist), and simply to trust her on His time-line. Regardless of what I see or hear – He has her, His hand of guidance is leading her, and He cares about the tiniest details. There is no cry that is insignificant to Him – even crying over a potty. 🙂
The potty is now a representation of a place of intercession 🙂 Because even though she was potty trained literally in one day, after that had happened other issues arose that made pottying uncomfortable for her. And even in those the Lord gave specific wisdom on how to resolve those issue after intercession had occurred.
So the scarf encompassed for me the fact that she is an overcomer (which is even represented by the frog potty since frogs leap!). The name of the scarf being significant (Refreshing Joy) because it reminds me that despite difficulties – joy comes in the morning. When I look at her, I speak joy over her. One of her favorite songs is the Jewish Melody by Julie Meyer – she calls it the “Joy Joy song” 🙂
Although I’d intentionally ordered the small scarf for her to worship Him with (I didn’t want her to trip), I felt like the scarf that I ordered for her was really for me (as encouragement) – and that I am supposed to get her an 11×60 because she hasn’t been given a “Holy Spirit junior” so she doesn’t need a “junior” worship scarf – so I think she’ll be getting her “big girl” scarf for Christmas 🙂
I just want to encourage others, that what may seem like an insurmountable challenge is really just a small beginning to victory 🙂
