What God Does with Stones

And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. - Ezekiel 36:26

Take this stone of fear

press it carefully into the curve of the leather strap

and use it to show that Your power alone can slay any giant

Let this stone of helplessness

be just the beginning of a towering ebenezer

reminding the world that our God helps

Use this stone of stubbornness

to pillow my head as I wrestle and realize

that a blessing is mine and God always delivers

When this stone marks a hard ending

shake the ground and roll it away

and send Your angels to remind me this is only the beginning

Only You could take this Stone of stumbling

and create a masterpiece of a tabernacle within me

with a Cornerstone that is vaguely familiar but completely changed

Remove this stone of hopelessness

that longs to beat inside this chest

and restore a heart of flesh that longs only for You

Dear God, please never let me forget that You can do miraculous, unexpected things with stones. In Jesus' Name, Amen...

  1. Happy Easter, Shelly. He is Risen! I pray you're doing wonderful and I love today's blog. I have a couple of rocks in my car, of all places, with the words "trust" and "move forward" on them. Part of a sermon we did at our churches and I keep them to always remember.

    My heart continues to be softened. Oftentimes through life it becomes hardened, work in progress here, but it is devoted and captured solely by my Lord who is worthy to carry it and protect it.

    Hugs and blessings! Tammy
