DIVINE METAMORPHOSIS

Evidence Of Change


Part One: WILDERNESS,  WASTEPLACES,  DESERT.


These thoughts are an isolated wilderness of loneliness
In a mind remote and inaccessible;
Inhospitable, cut-off, shut-off;
No-one comes here.


These lives are forsaken waste places of rejection
In a world hopeless and confused;
Neglected, meaningless, abandoned;
Nothing useful here.


These hearts are a dry desert of defeat
In a soul solitary and sad;
Scorched, blistered, bare;
Nowhere to grow here.


Part Two: GARDEN, DWELLING PLACES, OASIS.


Now these thoughts are a glorious garden of communion
In a mind close and reacheable;
Accommodating, inviting, welcoming;
We have fellowship here.


Now these lives are treasured dwelling places of acceptance
In a world hopeful and learning;
Nourished, meaningful, belonging;
We have stewardship here.


Now these hearts are a well-watered oasis of victory
In a soul sociable and glad;
Refreshed, healed, abounding;
We have worship here.


Part Three: CHANGE, TRANSFIGURE, TRANSFORM.


Transform these thoughts from wilderness to garden,
From waste places to dwelling places, these lives transfigure,
Hearts from desert to oasis change,
Your metamorphosis divinely trigger.
