When the Creator exalts us, it is sure fired.
Permanent though often hard-earned.
Others will see our good works
Like a light sitting high upon a hill.
After enduring blood, sweat and tears,
Along with some misgivings and perceived misfirings.
We will come to understand that quite like a volcano,
He is both purging and creating at the same time.
Still molding, still shaping and still making us presentable to the world.
In a fashion which truly honors and represents Him.
No longer cleaving to the fleeting tinsel which only shines and blings,
Temporarily before changing to rust, disgust and immense letdowns.
To those who understand that we ourselves are not the molders
Of the clay, will quite likely continue to carry on!
So, wait and work and work until the One who made it all,
Is pleased with our efforts.
For He can exalt us like no mortal ever could or can,
As we showcase our wares for a borrowed season!
