New Sight

by Mark Weinrich

Though my eyes are old,
they have youth through Christ.
For I know even now
He is making things new.

What others dismiss
as useless or beyond
renovation, Christ delights
in displaying 
endless acts of grace,
reversing lives and
circumstances we never
dreamed could be reclaimed.

His creative vision
is ever open to the seeds
of dreams, the wonders beyond
imagination, and even to those 
who think they are blind 
to expectation.

Lord, I know I am a miracle
through Your transformation,
may my life sow hope
so others will believe
no matter how rough they feel
that they are the clay
for Your recreation.
