Wet Paint

 

at my beginning, God spoke

 

“Let there be!”

and there was me

and He loved me

 

unfailing

 

upon this ball of dust

from which I am being formed

He the Master Craftsman

prepares His beloved work

for the goal He knew of old

had planned before time began

 

it matters not what stripes

our foe may lay along my back

His plan, His hand are sure

even our enemy’s worst

serves to craft me more nearly

what He planned for me to be

 

a prize of beauty

in which He will rejoice

whose testimony of His power

serves to show His mercy

“Wet Paint” (as I call it) was painted by Fred Asbury

as a sermon illustration by Pastor Don Symons

to demonstrate how even the enemys wreckage

of God perfect plan God somehow makes part of

His plan; perfect as it has been from the beginning.

 

Fred began the painting then, as he stepped aside,

Darlene Morgan came up and painted random lines,

which Fred then worked into the trees seen above.
