The Crumbling Clan


I can tell you how He helped me.
I can tell you what He said.
I consider each day gifted.
I have lost my greatest dread.

I embrace a broader family.
I have dropped my trust in self.
I am focused on the treasure,
That transcends all earthly wealth.

I would love to take you with me
On this Christ-embracing trek;
But I know just how the Spirit
First must leave your plans a wreck.

And the brokenness He looks for
Seems a weakling’s lot to you.
And that list of natural talents,
He will, every one, subdue.

It must rate a poor investment
While the game is still at hand,
And the friends still pull the levers,
And your house seems sure to stand.

But if Love once grabs the heart strings
And reveals the Cross in power,
You may join the clan whose crumbling
Has become their finest hour.

Are you sure that it won’t happen?
That this Gospel is a lie?
Comes to mind another breaking,
But the rebel, then, was I.

A really good read, enjoyed then flow. One thing a bit troubling to me is the statement, "And that list of natural talents, He will, every one, subdue". Am I to understand that if I still have some of those talents, that there is something wrong with my walk before Him?

Carl: Consider Philippians 3: 7,8.
We have seen how God may employ a natural pre-disposition to His glory The gift came from Him in the first place...But if we take any self-assurance from the talent, we may have to be chastened. All bows to the sovereignty of Jesus, and awaits His marching orders.

It was not my intention to suggest that the gift must be annihilated, only surrendered.
