The Master Pruner
By David Smith July 3, 2010
Matthew 7: 18, 19, 20 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit: but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Hebrews 4: 12 For the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
As God wants to mould me and shape me to mend
Closer to Jesus by His Word he did sent.
He gave a wife to hit heads with all day
To realize the Value, the power to pray
With painful jabs, God’s Holy Word
Piercing the heart so wicked and reserved
To point out the stubbornness to let in the light
The joy of a Christian with a restless night
The master pruner, with knife in his hand
A two edged sword on God’s word that I stand
Far from the truth and out in left field
By faith alone; to God’s way that I yield
And every day; change appears so slow
Through cutting and whittling, the Pruner to know;
He is the surgeon to bring me closer to the Cross
Sacrificed His Begotten Son; that I might not be lost.
O what joy as I hurt in his hand;
As he guides me and prunes me; for His Promised Land.
