Provoke Me With Love

Romans 6:23
New Living Translation (NLT)

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Provoked by Time

Like flowers that have lain too long
Amid a tired and aging vase,
Where the workings of timeless sun and wind
Provoke the aging of their face,

And the water that gave them nourishment
Has slowly festered and turned a mossy green,
Choking off the flow of life
So slow it’s hardly even seen,

The sun’s rays break through the window panes
And cause a diffuse pattern on the wall,
Its light now revealing the toll of life
On every flower, one and all,

Time too has taken its toll on me
As the clock hands quickly turned,
Soon I’ll rest inside an earthen vase
Where to the dust I am returned,

But unlike flowers cut from the root
Destined to fade away and die,
The Gardener has come to graft me
Into His garden in the sky

Thank You for rescuing us from the ravages of sin and time. You are the master gardener who cuts and prunes and grafts us, changing us from tares to wheat. Please be with us as we walk through this field of life.
