INTO SHAPE

INTO SHAPE
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Struggle builds stamina.
Crisis builds character.
Conflict builds courage.
Christ builds faith.
----
God has chosen:
Hurts,
Heartaches,
Headaches,
Trials,
Pain.
The stuff that aches …
To mold you,
Make you,
Break you,
Take you,
Get you into shape.
The soul becomes softer,
The heart becomes purer,
The thoughts become wiser,
The mind becomes clearer.

You change.
----
In the end
The stuff that aches…
Conforms,
Creates,
The soul.
----
Don’t despise,
Or criticize,
The One ... who won’t let go.
He loves you with an everlasting love.
He loves you …
And He’ll never let you go.

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."
2 Corinthians 5:17
