Under Construction

In New York City at Ground Zero The World Trade Centre Tower once stood After its grim aftermath destruction The illustrious tower is under construction To minimize future structural failures and other catastrophes The new tower is design and constructed To be earthquake, fire and wind resistance As wind pressure increase with height distance There have been slight changes made to the original It is reinforced to resist compression and tension Engineer MacGray is so far thrilled As they are a step closer seeing the mission fulfilled A Christian is a structure under construction We are under a divine construction of the Holy Spirit God is at work in you to shape and to remove your imperfections According to that Mighty Glorious Power of His resurrection Your life may be of no rhyme or reason The Master Engineer is at work to bring balance, symmetry and order He is reinforcing His ideas for a spiritual transformation The Holy Spirit is empowering His new creation The structure is not built in a single day Neither is His Divine Masterpiece So as the Master Designer hammer and chisel your wall with affliction Though painful, remain silence for you’re under a divine construction For the House when under construction was built of stone prepared at the quarry so that no hammer or chisel [noise] was heard in the temple while it was being built [1kings6:7]; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure [Phil 2:13]
