This poem has been running through my mind a lot lately. The first time I saw it was the night I graduated from high school. Inside each of our diplomas was a little card with it written on.
Stumbling Block or a Stepping Stone
Isn't it strange that princes and kings
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings
And common folks like me
Are builders of eternity.
To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass and a book of rules:
And each must make, ere time is flown,
A stumbling block or a Stepping Stone.
I am that shapeless mass and God's Word is the set of rules.
He also gave me different talents or gifts to use for Him. (His plan for our lives is to LOVE Him and GLORIFY Him forever.)
When I accepted His great salvation my live changed very much.
II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Praise God He is still changing me to be more like Him.
I know before I knew Christ I was a stumbling block.
If you know Him isn't the love of Jesus WONDERFUL!!!
