    Thank God way back when I was nothing
    Before I even knew how to be anything
    HE saw fit to turn around my everything
    And make way for me to be something

    Who you see standing before you today
    Is only able to because He made a way
    He was the potter and I was the clay
    He molded me into what you see today

    Though I'm not quite all I ought to be
    I know He has made a difference in me
    I've come farther then you'll ever see
    And one day I'll be a mirror image of HE

    So if you see me seeming to stumble
    Please don't begin to judge and mumble

    For I am still just a work in progress
    And still sometimes will make a mess

    But thanks to grace and mercy combined
    I will one day be able to sparkle and shine

    And be all that HE created me to be
    So please just simply pray for me

    God sees our luster, even when we don't realize we are able to shine. Many can bear witness to God's works, continue to praise him poet.

    Amen and AMEN! This reminded me of Malachi 3:17

    [17] And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
