Sunny
and the Potter


My name is Sunny
I'm nothing
nothing at all
it took me
five years
five long years
to graduate
and gain
my high school
leaving certificate.


Sunny
you are
fearfully
and wonderfully
made1
you are the
work of
my hands.2


Oh, people were
proud
of me
everyone was
except
my Dad
and dead Ma
they, like me,
only saw
the years
and years
of failure.

I have numbered
the hairs
on your head3
and will restore
the years
that the
locusts have eaten.4


I coped.
I am the potter.5

I screamed
in fear
and anger
as I smashed
the mirror
against the wall
then
smashed
the furniture
the plates,
bowls and glasses.

I love you
with an
everlasting love6
and will
build you up
again,7
for my perfect love
will cast out
your fear.8


Thus my life was back in order,
shattered at my feet.

Sunny
the kingdom of heaven
is yours.9


When the clouds
parted
I realised
the only
broken
thing
that day

was me.

I will heal you
bind up
your wounds10
and you can take
refuge11


in me.

What a wonderful example of God's love and wisdom being applied in the midst of our angst and anger. This is very poignant. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Simple, yet profound...great stark imagery, mixed with calm, soothing balm of God's Word.

Really like the intermix of how we see what are, as opposed to how God sees what we can be and the vivid view of inner “blowout” and breaking and spiritual healing! Good job!
