CHANGE

Every second something changes.
Someone's life rearranges.
A dad goes off to fight a war.
Someone knocks at your front door.
A small child enters foster care.
A cancer patient loses her hair.
A mother stitches pearls and lace.
A teenage daughter faces disgrace.
A husband starts a brand new job.
An innocent bystander gets pummeled by a mob.

Every second something changes.
Someone's life rearranges.
Change is a chance to be used, like a potter
Who can take a little clay and just a little
water;
And casting down the old pot, make a new bowl.
Just so, God, the Potter, can make a man whole,
Rearranging life's changes, and making a new
end to the story,
So that in all life's changes, He gets all the
glory.

Changes big and changes small.
Some form of change comes to us all.
When change is viewed as merely chance,
We fail to see God's providence.
For change, like a potter molding the clay,
Can be shaped and molded as we pray.
And even those changes that break the heart,
Are transformed by God as he uses each part
Of the pain that we feel to refine and renew us,
Into all the good works that He will do through
us.
So change, when seen through eternal eyes,
Brings us one step closer to Paradise.
