33rd -- Touch Of The Master's Hand


This is a good story that shows that we may be beat up in body and 
spirit, but when the Lord comes into the picture, all will be restored 
and made better than before.

Trust in the Lord in all your ways, even when things don't look like they 
will end up the way you want. God sees the end of the road that we are 
still traveling on. Keep trusting the Lord and He is faithful to make 
every crooked path straight. (Isaiah 40:4)


Well it was battered and scarred, and the auctioneer felt It was hardly 
worth his while, to waste much time on the old violin But he held it up 
with a smile..."It sure ain't much but it's all we got left, I guess we 
ought to sell it too...Now who'll start the bid on this old violin, just 
one more and we'll be through."

And then he cried, "One! Give me one dollar! Who'll make it two? Only 
two dollars! Who'll make it three? Three dollars twice! Now that's a 
good price...now who's got a bid for me. Raise up your hand and don't 
wait any longer. The auction's about to end Who's got four? Just one 
dollar more... to bid on this old violin." 

Well the air was hot and the people stood around As the sun was setting 
low. From the back of the crowd a gray-haired man Came forward, picked up
the bow. He wiped the dust from the old violin, and tightened up the 
strings... Then he played out a melody pure and sweet...sweeter than the 
angels sing. 

And then the music stopped... and the auctioneer with a voice that was 
quiet and low, He said, "What am I to bid for this old violin? " Then he 
held it up with a bow.

And then he cried, "One! Give me one thousand! Who'll make it two? Only 
two thousand! Who'll make it three? Three thousand twice! Now that's a 
good price... but who's got a bid for me. The people cried out, "What 
made the change? We don't understand" Then the auctioneer stopped and He 
said with a smile, "It was the Touch of A Master's Hand" 

Now you know many a man with a life out of tune is battered and scarred 
with sin And he's auctioned cheap to a thankless world, much like that old
violin. Then the Master comes, and the foolish crowd. They never 
understand The worth of a soul and the change that is wrought, Just by
one touch of THE MASTER'S HAND. 

God is able to change any heart and make any life worth living to those 
that feel worthless and unworthy. He is able to do exceeding abundantly 
above all that we ask or think, Ephesians 3:20. If you sometimes feel like
that violin, then I encourage you to seek a touch of The Master's Hand and
He is faithful to do for you all that you ask of God.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new 
creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

Ephesians 4:22-24 "That ye put off concerning the former conversation the
old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed
in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after 
God is created in righteousness and true holiness."

Psalm 103:2-5 "Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who 
redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness
and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy
youth is renewed like the eagle's."

All scriptures can be found in the KJV.
