Written a year ago, this is uncannily applicable to today.....

Heart-sore, body-sore -- all to Your glory.
You waste nothing -- including all this.
Take my soreness of heart and make something beautiful.
Take my soreness of body and encourage someone with it, bringing tranquility.
Create gems which have eternal value,
sparkling and laughing like happy children.
Then string them on golden threads of Your making,
refined from my obedience and surrender,
and adorn Your body with them, to Your eternal purpose.
