God’s moulding of Men that he calls to serve

‘When God wants to drill a man, and thrill a man, and skill a man
When God wants to mold a man to play the noblest part
When He yearns with all his heart to create so great and bold a man
That all the world should be amazed,
Watch his methods, watch His ways:
How he ruthlessly perfects whom He royally elects;
How he hammers him and hurts him
And with mighty blows converts him into shapes and forms of clay
Which only God can understand,
While man’s tortured heart is crying and he lifts beseeching hands;
Yet God bends but never breaks when man’s good He undertakes
How He uses whom he chooses,
And with mighty power infuses him,
With every act induces him to try his splendour out,
God knows what he’s about…’
(Anon, Quoted in When God Weeps)
