Jeremiah 18 – Holy Bible

He meticulously takes the clay and its dust,
adds the other ingredients of the recipe
that only He knows;
uses His mighty hands
to mix them thoroughly together,
and creates (wo)man in His own image;
yet none is like the other.

He painstakingly adds water

so that it becomes neither too wet nor too dry
and stirs the mixture until it sticks together,
to create twins who are identical,
but each unique in its own way.

My sky has slowly been getting dark,
but before they gather
to return body to dust,
I’m not finished with the World just yet;
my fighting spirit is

Even though I keep my eyes closed
against the morning light as long as possible,
thank you, Lord, that I can see.
Many are blind.

I have sung the hymnal, “How Great Thou Art” countless times;
but it’s not until now that it is clicking in my mind
how great Thou actually are.

That when I say that I consider
all Your awesome wonder,
I never got to that part where
I could visualize
that it is Your greatness that prevents:
• Schools being cancelled.
• Self-distancing measures being put in place
• Entire sports seasons being cancelled.
• Concerts, tours, festivals and entertainment events being cancelled; and,
• Weddings, family celebrations, holiday gatherings being cancelled.

That when I say that I consider all
the worlds Your hands have made,
I never got to the point where
I could visualize
that it is Your greatness that
