One Day Changes Everything

by Mark Weinrich

Joseph was humiliated
by his brothers and
sold into slavery.
Falsely accused
and thrown into prison.
He extended kindness
to a desperate prisoner
and was forgotten
for years.

Yet all that the world
defines as misfortune
was overturned.
He was lifted from prison
and presented in the palace.
He explained Pharoah’s dream
and was clothed like a king.
Everything changed in one day,
from a slave and prisoner
to the governor of Egypt.

When we remember Jesus’ death
in the prison of our sin. When we
claim and trust Him, one moment,
one day, changes everything.
We are lifted like Joseph, 
and we experience 
the dizzying transformation
from slaves and prisoners
to children and co-heirs 
with our King.
