Inspired by 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Philippians 3:8
It’s not much,
these slivers chiseled
from my soul,

small offering of self
like sand or chaff,
worthless except in loss.

Chip by chip,
what I release
reforms me

into something new
not made with hands
but by God

and by letting go
the stone that encases
His masterwork within.

I am raw,
rough hewn,
but becoming.

Inspired by the Come, Follow Me readings for October 14-20
