As Adam, of creation fame, was shaped from dust, and then given name,

I too was made again from what was dust, abused and left to rot.

Broken far beyond repair, who could have known that He'd be there,

gathering particles, piece by piece, the shatterings of violent griefs!

Nothing left but filthy dust, completely trashed by grasping lust.

 

A soul afflicted, broken, bruised, unloved, ravaged, sold, abused,

How could He ever so restore a pile of dust to something more?

And yet how Adam came to be, was done again for all to see.

As He formed Adam, then breathed His life, He gathered me from all the strife,

and formed a new identity, and breathed His new life into me!

 

I do not wait for “someday” now, My Prince has come, I know not how.

Gratefully, I live each day, in the wondrous beauty of His Way,

Now “normal” things, miraculous seem, as I live with a Joy I dared not dream.

As I sleep with peace I dared not hope, live life abundant, find grace to cope,

Love, I dared not dream I'd see, plus the promise of love eternally.


 

Now whole, though scarred enough to prove, that in His love, He will still move

upon the chaos, in darkness finding, broken ones, to His heart binding,

bringing order by His Word, comforting the cries He heard,

still bringing light to eyes gone blind endlessly seeking someone kind,

Still, He is speaking forth His light to those still lost in darkest night.

 

He's speaking, always, “Peace! Be Still!” to ones storm-ravaged, sea-sick, ill,

stumbling, falling, grasping, groping, tired of living, far from hoping,

as good as dead, hearts cold as corpse, He still commands them to come forth!

As Phoenix rose from smoking ash, so He brings diamonds forth from trash.

How He works His wonders I can not know, but I here I am, it must be so!

 

 

Selah! (Pause, & Calmly ponder that!)
