A Psalm to God and a Corolla

Let me tell you a story, a modern twist of a parable,
a bit of everyday good news about God’s grace:

There’s a Corolla in my life
and it has been a witness
to God’s provision of
sanctuary to a weary soul.

And there was the Corolla, and there was God,
offering peace amidst the raging storms.

There’s a Corolla in my life
and it has manifested
God’s familiar presence
across miles and miles of road.

And there was the Corolla, and there was God,
reassuring like a pillar of fire in the wilderness.

There’s a Corolla in my life
and it is born the stain
of life’s chaos, crumbled
and matted into the upholstery.

And there was the Corolla, and there was God,
and there was grace for life’s messes.

There’s a Corolla in my life
and it has carried me
every time God said “Go” and
it has guarded me as I heeded that call.

And there was the Corolla, and there was God,
and there was the courage to follow.

There’s a Corolla in my life and I suppose
it’s very materialistic of me to say
but I am grateful to this car
that has faithfully revealed God to me.

And in this modern twist of a parable,
as I listen to my own story, I remember
that God’s grace continues
everyday in bits & pieces
no matter the vehicle …
because there is God and there is grace.
