What They Are Not


Beauty from ashes

Aaaaahhhh, what a thought

To make something new out of something it’s not

The earth formed from nothing

Humankind from that earth

The first breath of life

From the darkness of birth

Fine wine from well water

Five fish feed a crowd

Blind eyes receive sight

Deaf silence turns loud

Enemies of God

Become friends with His Son

The cross battled death

And new life was won

The same God of miracles

Since the beginning of time

Still does His magic

In your life and mine

Despair morphs to hope

The can’ts become cans

When we witness the wonder

Of life in His hands

Beauty from ashes

Aaaaahhhh, what a thought

He still makes new things out of what they are not.

Isaiah 43:19 – See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

2 Corinthians 5:17  – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!

Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.
