Regenerating God

2 Corinthians 4:16

‚ÄčTherefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

‚ÄčLord,

I visited the Olympic Village today

The whole site is really quite astounding.

Fresh clean pavements

Shiny new buildings

And mature trees sprouting up all over the place.

And yes, water features like rivers  in the middle of the  the streets

It was a revelation.

It was a recreation

A renewal and much more

To think that all this was wasteland 

Polluted ground

A place to discard rubbish

Yet nothing was wasted 

Every piece of soil reclaimed 

Oh Lord,

This place is a parable

A vision

A physical reminder of what it means to be regenerated

 

 

Come,

Regenerating God,

Move into my neighbourhood

My sphere of influence 

My wastelands

Reclaim my ground

My life 

My backyard

Make me one of your regeneration wonders
