Just a Pinch

it's been a tough week
like salt in the wound
or sticky tears that creep between the lips
but I can still feel You near
still calling me to more than this pain
that is really
just a pinch
compared to that day on the hill
still calling me to be the salt of the earth
bringing out the best flavor in others
and getting lost in You
I know You will warp this pain
into some kind of salty goodness
so sprinkle me however You wish
just a pinch
so I can somehow lessen the pain of others
standing overwhelmed at the edge of an ocean
afraid to dip their toes in the salty waves
of the depths of You
Use me as I dive in and beckon them to join me
with a little salty hope
even if it is
just a pinch

"Salt does not exist for it's own sake. Salt is to lose itself in something more glorious than itself. Don't underestimate the power of the salt, the power of what God can do with small interventions. God puts his 'super' on our 'natural' and something supernatural happens."Rob Wegner Viral Interventions sermon March 29-20, 2008

"You are the salt of the earth." Jesus, Matthew 5:13
