Tuesday's Trust - Pain is Like the Dirt...

Tuesday's Trust

Pain is Like the Dirt...


In Grief, God's Power Is Expressed In Love's Creativity

Pain is like the Dirt that springs out the Gift

of Creativity like a Flower

of Poetry, Music... My spirit does lift

with each Life-sign of the Creator's power.

O Lord God, Creator of me, please sift

Through my wreckage~bring Beauty from Ash Tower.

Use my Pain like Black Dirt. Weed Deadly Dross.

Till Sorrow's Soil midst Calamity's Cross.

Spark Sorrow's Sprout amidst Death's Cruel Cross.

Yield Love's Life despite Deplorable Loss!

(Old Testament scripture which Jesus said He fulfills ~See Luke 4:17-21:)

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on Me, because the Lord has appointed Me to...
provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them

  • a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
  • the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and
  • a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
  • They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor.

~Isaiah 61:1,3
