Good Afternoon my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray you’ve spent your time living intentionally and with purpose. I wrote this piece on my lunch break today. I know that it’s the day of “love.” I’m sure most of you have made some gesture to a loved one, a friend, Jesus, or yourself. One thing that I love about Yahweh is that He is the epitome of intentional. Everything He does is with purpose. So in the spirit of this “love” day, I was drawn to reflect on how much He loves me. Poetry is my first love when it comes to writing. I don’t share it much but this piece meant something to me. I pray you
Who is this woman you created me to be?
This creature who I’m learning to love.
I wonder what you were thinking when you weaved me together.
Did you intentionally make me a creative?
Did you say, “Passion” will be in this one?
I wonder if you intentionally made me with dimples and long hair.
If you purposely gifted me with my hands.
Did you mean to make me a “go-getter?”
What about my desire to build women up?
Did you place that in me while I was in my mother’s womb?
How did you find the time to be so methodical in creating me?
Did you know that I would be in this place right now?
A place of complete submission to you?
Did you know that you would be introducing me to your original craftsmanship 33 years after her birth?
I can’t imagine how it feels to perfectly form something that won’t begin developing til decades later.
How loving and patient you are.
The more I think about you the more I am in awe of your existence.
I’m filled with emotion every time I try to conceptualize your thoughts.
You love in a way that I will never.
Your mind goes beyond my greatest ambition.
You’re the ultimate creative.
Guess that’s why you made me in your image.
You wanted me to see the greatness of you in me.
Thank you, Yahweh!
Thank you, for loving me.
