Crooked Line Project
Inspired by an understanding that in every person’s toughest life moments there is serenity through a belief that “God Makes it Straight With a Crooked Line”. This is a comforter that can provide warmth and hope through a daily reminder that not only can life improve, but sometimes it takes a crooked line for it to do so. Remember that you are not alone. There will be moments that are unexplainable, full of sorrow and fraught with loneliness, but if you have your faith, you are never alone. "Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name, you are mine." Isaiah 43:1 Place your trust in Jesus so, no matter your difficult situation (crooked line), you know that God is working behind the scenes to bless you in ways you never dreamed possible. Live each day trusting that "God Makes it Straight with a Crooked Line". A Comforter with Meaning Imagine that, while you are on your crooked line, that you are able to see all the way to the end where it becomes straight. However, the problem with this is that it's most difficult to see God's purpose when the line is crooked. Having faith can often be a frustrating and difficult journey, but when you're in the midst of a difficult time (crooked line) it is important to stay strong in your faith and believe in your heart that, "All things work together for good to those who love God" Romans 8:28 Accepting with trusted faith that God makes it straight with a crooked line is not easy. It's for this reason that we started the Crooked Line Project. It was created to help provide a daily affirmation to keep your faith strong. It's a comforter with a message of hope and inspiration. A subtle reminder that if you accept God's path you will not just personally be fulfilled, but you will also be led in ways to serve and help others, too.
Message from the founder of The Crooked Line Project: Have you ever had a 'gut feeling'? Something that overwhelmed you in such a way that it couldn't be ignored? I like to think of these life moments not as 'gut feelings' but as "God feelings". It's a lot more compelling and logical to believe that God speaks to each one of us vs. believing that our stomach organs have such authority. In being open to and accepting a "God Feeling", I set out to design a comforter that would provide not just warmth, but also one that provided encouragement and a purposeful hope. At the time I had no idea what I would do with such a comforter once it was made, but I remember that didn't matter. I guess that's why I call it a "project". What it lacked in planning, it made up for in meaning. Please allow our comforter to serve you, someone you love, or someone you know who needs it. Whether you need it for warmth through the winter or for a daily reminder to always have faith, our intention and mission is for our comforter to feel as though you are receiving a warm embrace from God. I am grateful and honored that you took the time to understand the meaning and background of our Crooked Line Project (which continues to evolve). May God Bless you in ways you would never have thought of or known to pray for.
