The Chisel

Although it won’t be pleasant

Chisel

File

Sand

Your handiwork

So that when You take me from the shelf of earthly life

You can flick away the shavings

Brush away the lingering sawdust

And say

“Yes! Yes! This is what I had in mind for your life.”

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  (Ephesians 2:10)

“Throughout our days-year after year-the lifelong quest for character development goes on.  While we wait, God works.  So let’s not grow weary.  The more He hammers and files, shapes and chisels, the more we are being conformed in the image of His Son.” Charles Swindoll
