Road Work Ahead!

“God seems to cause these intersections of life to enlarge my heart.”
Susan Hill*
 
 
God’s doing a construction job,
Enlarging this old heart.
It may require removal of
Some surface dirt, to start.
 
Some digging and some scraping will
No doubt be useful, too,
In getting my path ready for
What God intends to do.
 
Often, He’ll make new intersections -
Bringing to my life
Someone with whom to share the grace
And love of Jesus Christ.
 
Then other times He’ll send someone
To minister to me,
And offer sweet encouragement
As I wait, patiently.
 
And once the job is finished I’ll
Again be on my way –
My heart enlarged to make more room,
Christ’s own heart to display.
 
 
“being confident of this,
that he who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 1:6 NIV
