Diamonds from coal, Pearls from sand,
Things which were worthless, now become grand.
Coal under Pressure, Sand Irritates,
That which is stressful, changes their states.
Statues from stone, Carvings from wood,
Things which were worthless, now become good.
Stone chipped away, Wood cut to size.
That which was plain, now pleasing to eyes.
Metals refined, made pure from the fire,
Things which were worthless now please any buyer.
Iron to Steel, enduring and strong.
Made from the heat, with hammer and tong.
Think you are worthless? God disagrees,
What you are now, God does not see.
Things sometimes painful, or irritate,
Are used by God, so He may create.
A Work of Art, from you God can make.
Because you are precious, He Died for your sake.
Though people reject you, hold you in scorn,
To God you're a gem, which waits to be formed.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
