God Uses Change


Life will surely have ups and downs, in large cities and small towns,
No one anywhere is sheltered from, changes in life when they come.
It is said when on the mountain top, be mindful that you could drop,
Back down into that valley low, at a time when you won’t even know.

Change may not be pleasant friend, but with change there is no end,
What may be unpleasant to some, can reverse with change to come,
When what is up does come down, that fixed smile turns to a frown,
This when we pin our emotions to, the changes seen by me and you.

Through all changes that are seen, there is a joy which we can glean,
This when we see the One above, those changes that are spoken of,
Joy, which fits hearts like a glove, all provided by our God with love,
Who in all times remains the same, God above Who doesn’t change.

Life’s changes experienced by all, are of a plan that’s far from small,
It’s God’s plan with a sure destiny, with the final place being Eternity.
All these changes are used by God, as a mental and a spiritual prod,
Moving men’s hearts to the place, so they accept unchanging Grace.

God desires one change for all, to change the destiny of one’s soul,
To make all souls Heaven bound, where constant change isn’t found,
That is after one more change to come, for all who know God’s Son,
As the rapture changes all in the Lord, for they shall live forevermore.

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
