The Turning

by Mark Weinrich

Like the wine jars at Cana 
I am empty and used up.

I long for the pouring,
the overflowing joy
of fullness.

But most of all, I
yearn for the turning,
the transformation
like water changed to wine.

For I know Jesus will not
leave me empty, even
when I’ve overestimated
my supply of strength.

Whenever I call 
His plan is working
in moments of pouring, 
seconds of turning, and
a lifetime of knowing, 
with Jesus the best 
is yet to come.
