Forged by … a Toaster?


Hebrews 4:12
New International Version (NIV)

12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.


It’s like a sissy hammer,
This thing that’s made of wood,
It’s made for hitting something
Just not as hard as you could,

Instead of using brute force,
We coax it into place,
We do not want to dent it
Or do damage to its face,

Give me a big ol’ ball peen,
Then quickly step aside,
For I’ll be making changes
That need to be applied,

It’s swifter and it’s kinder
Just to go on and end the pain,
There is no reason to delay
And nothing much to gain,

So think it over while you can
And try not to delay,
When you’re using just a mallet
Most things won’t obey

Heat us up and place us in Your forge. Place us upon Your anvil and change us with Your hammer sure and mighty. May we be changed into silver and gold. Precious in Your sight and worthy for Your service.
