How He works

Pondering this poem this morning realizing it also applies to a woman who God is shaping and the need we ALL have to trust Him as He works in our lives:

When God wants to drill a man, and thrill a man,
and skill a man,
When God wants to mold a man,
to play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart,
to create so great and bold a man,
That all the world shall be amazed,
watch His methods, watch His ways.
How He ruthlessly perfects whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
and with mighty blows converts him
Into trial shapes of clay which only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying,
and he lifts beseeching hands!
How he bends but never breaks
when His good He undertakes.
How He uses whom He chooses, and with every purpose fuses him;
But every act induces Him to try His splendor out.
God knows what He's about.
