Water In Gods Hands

    I've seen skies of blue and clouds roll away,
      I've heard birds that sing on a bright sunny day.
     
      Then again most people have seen and heard this too.
      It's not any secret that's hidden from you.

      But as the sun sets and the day turns to night.
      Look at the beauty of the colors that cover the sky.

      Whether it be stars shining in the night or the moon glowing
      so bright.
     
      God has blessed us with this creation and it's not made by
      men or hid from our sight.
     
      God has created all things big and small.
      Things of beauty, He created them all.

      Sometimes I feel like water poured out into God's hand.
      And He sifts me like grains of sand.

      He sifts through the dirt that' accumulated over time.
      Of the many things that have cluttered my mind.

      He pours and He pours but always holds me up.
      This purification test can sometimes get rough.

      Then before I know it, I am standing on my feet and God's
      pouring out Holy rain all over me.
      I am being washed from top to bottom.

      Now God is searching my heart and He's pouring His spiritual
      rain through the dark places and the valleys. When He gets
      done, I will be good to go.
      For every area in my heart will be washed white as snow.

      I know I've been forgiven and God has cleansed me from with
      out and within.
      I've been forgiven from all of my sins.

      Because I've been poured out like water, in the master's
      hands.
      I've been sifted and shaken as grains of sand.

        You just sound really, really talented, Ms. Tuchezzzz and multi-culturally sensitive, too and just full of spunk--or spit or something.  I sooo look forward to seeing some of YOUR work here on Hubpages!  Isn't it rewarding to appreciate others' poems?

          I don't want to quote what you said because I find it so racist that it is offensive when attached to something so beautiful. What I will quote is from the forum rules:

          "Respect: Please maintain respect for other Hubbers, even if you don’t necessarily agree with them. Keep your language clean and don’t make personal attacks."...

          "Making Personal Attacks: debate and disagreements on points of substance are all right, but personal attacks, petty bickering, and thread hijacking will be dealt with swiftly."

        I think that's funny! (Worship cow...) So that would mean we worship Michael Jackson over here, or Obama, or whoever it is in this moment stealing headlines, right? Wow! We're so similar after all! And I even know people who worship their pets because they are afraid of children! Crazy world, huh.

        BTW, like the poem. It's lovely. Most sincere. Keep writing.

    What's your point ??

    1. DeaneMc profile image57
      DeaneMcposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      I guess I would have to say that my point is: When we first come to God we come as we are and then over a period of time as God molds us and shapes us and clean's us for His glory we become a new creation.He changes us from the inside out. Then the things that we once took for granted we look at differently. Such as the beauty of God's creation. And ourselves. We begin to see ourselves as God see's us.

    Yeah, what amazes me is that someone actually took the time to construct such a message.  Not too bright, either, on multiple levels.

      I was tempted to report her but I figured she was new and maybe has never been on a forum before. Hopefully, what I wrote will make her think better next time.

      Joined your fan club and wrote a fan letter you'll get a kick out of.
