“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call on Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God,
for He will freely pardon.” Is. 55:6-7(NIV)
Said to be hopeful in God above,
Show the world His abundant love.
I thought my life was prime example,
I mean, I’m a church girl,
Isn’t that ample?
I filled my world with fitting in,
Hoping with others I would blend.
Now I’m seeing for real this time,
My eyes are open, no longer blind.
In this talk the preacher gave,
I began to ponder the role I play.
The talk was on the lost at heart,
How God can use me to take a part.
The analogy was plain and simple,
It’s message meaning clear as crystal.
Consider mining for gold if you will,
The time it takes and certain skill.
Removing first the layers of dirt,
Carefully leaving the vein unhurt.
Under the layers of rock and grime,
Hard to discern the nugget sublime.
Consider those lost, a precious mine.
Tell them you see the shine underneath,
How He will use it to make them complete.
Tell them how much you long to know,
What God has in store, for them to show.
Tell them you know they’ve gifts deep and buried,
How they can use them in ways that are varied.
Talents God gave them while still in the womb,
Never intending them stay in a tomb.
So to one that I hold dear, He knows you,
He loves you, He sees through your fear.
You have nuggets deep within,
Christ will refine you, turn now from sin!
For those of us who’ve held our tongues
In times we should have spoken,
With lesson learned go spread the news,
That God will heal the broken.
Don your lamp, bright and burn,
Mine for gold in everyone.
