Opening Meditation

This poem is part of the Shoetry collection.

God who:
Brings the miraculous out of the mundane,

Brings the supernatural out of the ordinary,

Exhibits glory in apparently lesser things,

Radiates and creates splendor from grit and grime;

God who:

Out of dust created a man,

Out of ashes delivers beauty,

Out of the storm brings peace and tranquility,

Out of despair gives life changing joy,

Out of abject poverty shows the riches of His grace,

Out of weakness brings prevailing strength,

Out of the mire of hopelessness produces a hope and a future,

Out of small men makes spiritual giants……..

Is with us

Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
