From the Poem: Useless
everything about this life
useless and ruthless
the means to all strife.
the treasures on earth
useless and fruitless
they hold no true worth.
are the worlds delights
useless and hopeless
with no future in sight.
under the sun
useless and senseless
without the Son . . .
King James Version
“Vanity of vanities,
saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities; all is vanity.”
Deborah Ann Belka
He’s sniping at my pride,
my smugness and my ego
so His life in mine . . .
will finally start to show.
He’s trimming each branch,
until their shaped and formed
He isn’t going to stop
until I’m totally ~ transformed.
He’s cutting out the dead wood,
striping back what is loathed
until each new branch
in Him is fully clothed.
Although at first it hurts,
all this cutting and trimming
I know that one day
In Him ~ I gonna look amazing.
I’m being cut and snipped,
God’s pruning me limb by limb
until I resemble someone . . .
who looks a whole lot like Him!
King James Version
“Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away:
and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it
that it may bring forth more fruit.”
Deborah Ann Belka
