Sometimes we stop and take a look at our lives, or an event that happened to us, and we think… “I’m Christian, God is good, what did I ever do to deserve this?” Perhaps it’s some variation of that.
I ran across this poem once by an unknown author that was really good, and has stuck with me every since… I would have to agree with someone who once suggested that this was quite possibly written by someone in ministry… But whomever wrote it… it sure does give you food for thought. Enjoy…
When God wants to drill a man, and thrill a man and skill a man,When God wants to mold a man to play the noblest part,When He yearns with all His heart to create so great and bold a man
That all the world should be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways,
How He ruthlessly perfects whom He royally elects;
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him into shapes and forms of clay
Which only God can understand,
While man’s tortured heart is crying and he lifts beseeching hands;
Yet God bends but never breaks when man’s good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses,
And with mighty power infuses him,
With every act induces him to try His splendor out,
God knows what He’s about.
