He's A Carpenter

Surrounded by various profession
Business, medicine, soldiership and education
It's heaven-sent and planned  for Him to labour
To work manually with strength and effort
True hardships; entails a great man of honor

He picked up woods and tools to craft
From small drawers and tables to houses that will last
An impression of humility and expression of equality
Though He is reverence; a Saviour from heaven

Joseph was the adoptive father
Where His skill of carpentry originated
He worked night and day; perspired with pain
He asked of no demand and with no complain

The name is Jesus born in Betlehem
The only begotten son of our Father in heaven
He could have worked in another occupation
But chose to make a living from down-below

Carpenters make
Carpenters create
They take the common and make it something to consider
Equipped with right materials they bind things altogether
The reason-being, for us to know He's a builder

Don't you know that we're under construction?
Whenever our hearts broken and the world is all we know
When we pray and call, Jesus is at work
To fix us and forgive; improving mind and soul

No work is greater if hardwork is shared
Truly, Jesus had proven that a carpenter's noble
To help us build our dreams and make the world stronger
"In Him, all things hold together"'.

    ...And of the same profession of carpentry, a shameful cross He hang to earn us pride and wealth, and turn the cross into a symbol of freedom and life rather than damnation and death, HALELUJAH!

    As we all say, "SPREAD THE LOVE" and love itself is God! Whenever we share the word to others, we are sharing the good news. A news that could transform someone into a heart - loving and pure. If we can translate oir artistry by glorifying His name, then this will be the perfect poem that we could ever write. Bless you! I'm happy to know that a smile was just painted on your face. Love,love,love! :-) - Den

    Thanks, Lara! Jesus was a great example that life is equal! It maybe fair or unfair to others but Jesus Himself didn't complain of anything in this world. Instead, He made all things possible from being too ordinary! He's a carpenter that'll always be there to break us and remake us whenever the need arise. Love,love,love! :-)

    God is working in you and me! In times that we think that we're broken, just call onto Him and pray, and He will be there to remake us and guide us through! Love,love,love! :-)
