His Unique Masterpiece, by Stephennie Segrest


Pastor Stephennie Segrest is the inimitably dignified, gracious, gentile, hospitable, honorable poet laureate of Lighthouse Church of All Nations. She is over our VIP Ministry for first time guests services and there could be no one more appropriate for that position.  I have never heard her voice more than a few decibels above a hush.  The extremity of her kindness exudes from her very being; from the touch of her hand, to the smile in her eyes; from the sweetness to her every greeting of, “Hello, Beautiful!” to her gentle and consistant departing words of, “May God bless you, always.” 

Even on her bad days (that no one would believe that she has if you weren’t close to her), she maintains a steadfast, steely gaze on the Source of her supply. This woman is dear to my heart and the epitome of Proverbs 25:11, “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold In settings of silver.

This is the poem Stephennie has graced us with.

Isaiah 64:8

New International Version (NIV)

Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; <=”” sup=””>
    we are all the work of your hand.

Our lives are not of what we plan,

our lives are shaped and mold by the Master’s hand

 

Our Lord is the potter Jesus is the Messiah, the Master of all,

black and white, short or tall

 

The Lord is our Heavenly Father,

Heaven is His throne

He’s forever in our hearts, we are never alone

 

For He knows of our beginning and the end

He is my Lord and Savior …my Best Friend!

 

God knows our hearts, and understands our weaknesses,

the word says

“He knows of our frame, He remembers that we are like dust”

but only in His eternal love we must trust

 

We all are rare gifts, in our Father’s eyes,

as rare as the beauty of nature, the sun, the moon

and the glorious skies

 

For the day will come when our lives must cease,

but forever you are God’s child

and forever you’ll be… His Unique Master Piece!! 

 

God Bless You Always!

Pastor Stephennie
