Why do we have to endure pain year after year?
Why are our days wasted or so it may appear?
The refining process may be a lot of pain-
But it will not destroy us for God tends the flame.
He monitors the process, waiting patiently,
Until His face is mirrored in you and me.
So, try not to be fearful and don't worry or fret
For, in God's refining, the best to come is yet!
The refining process of God, that the poem speaks about, is, I believe, similar to the refining process of a writer. When I write a poem or a song, my final copy's words or notes, usually, never wind up to be exactly the same as my first copy's words or notes. In my refining process, as a writer, I may add to, take away from or I may rearrange the first copy. The original inspiration or idea, I had, for the first copy remains the same. But, in the creative process, it undergoes refinement until the time when I consider the final copy of my work to be the best expression of my first or original idea.
Psalm 66:10-12 (NKJV)
For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined. You brought us into the net; You laid affliction on our backs. You have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
