Transforming Grace

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
and the dry land springs of water.”
Isaiah 41:18b
 
Lord, who can take the wilderness
And make of it a sea?
There’s none in heav’n or earth below;
There’s none, oh Lord, but Thee!
 
Or who could fill a barren sky
With sun, and moon, and stars?
Who is this great Creator?
Oh Lord of Heav’n, You are!
 
And who can take sin from a heart,
Then put love in its place?
There’s nothing that can change a soul
Like Your transforming grace!
 
Lord, in Your mercy, grace, and love,
Transform this heart of mine.
Remold, remake it as You will,
Till I am wholly Thine!
 
 
“Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus…” Philippians 2:5
 
“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be
conformed to the image of his Son…” Romans 8:29a

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.

A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, Lindsey. I love how God can get a message to our hearts in so many creative and unexpected ways. I do hope you'll stop again, and that you'll find many more blessings here. I am working on adding more pictures. But I'd like them to be my own, if possible. So it's slow going. But thanks for the suggestion. God bless!
