Deep within the center of
this chosen piece of wood
is an image to behold and touch,
if we only could.
Their in dwells potential
of a bird emerging free,
but initially this bird
through eyes of faith we see.
The transformation is a process
flowing through the master’s hand,
tools and skills and wood alike
must obey his sure commands.
Then what was placed within this tree,
so deep within it’s heart.
shines forth as what the Master saw
so clearly from the start.
This allegory illustrates
something God would have us to see,
of His sovereign plan to manifest
His Son in you and me.
So daily count it as an honor
that the Master works on you,
for as He chips away the flesh,
the love of Jesus will shine through.
