I Change You

Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to your word.

I change you.

From sunrise to sunrise
and every fragile moment in between
I change you
with My voice,
calling you by name.

I wrap up your desire for Me
and give it to you as a gift
which you offer back to Me
with hands grubby from pawing through
the world’s muck.

Through your tears I change you
from trembling child
to confident adult,
your confidence shifting from self
to the One who makes your feet
like hind’s feet
on high places.

I whisper to you in dreams;
sodden with sleep
and limp with the humiliation
of another day’s battle
fought in your own tenuous strength,
I speak to your heart
of the plans I had for you
before you were formed
in your mother’s womb.

As you slumber
I count the hairs on your head
and this too changes you.
You awaken with the vague sense
of feeling more loved, more yourself,
than the day before.

In a thousand ways
I change you
until you become
the you I created you to be.

Your tears are kept in a bottle;
aged like old wine
they will one day
be poured out in blessing
in countless lives,
like the fragrant oil that ran
down Aaron’s beard.

I change you by making you
more you than eye has seen,
or ear heard.

Because I love you
I promise not to leave you
as I found you,
broken and uncontained
like an old wineskin.

Because I love you:
I change you.

I Change You
