We are His poem

I have always liked poetry.  From the time I was a small child I have been drawn to language and the beauty of words. I have no patience with mediocre fiction. Give me a real and beautiful story, one where there is pain but with it resilience and hope. Give me an author who can write well.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

My pastor preached a sermon where he mentioned that the word “workmanship” could be translated “sculpture” or “poem.” We are His sculpture. We are His poem. Already written. Already made beautiful. God has prepared us for these good works ahead of time and gifted us to walk in them.

I was sharing some of these thoughts with Marissa the other day. How she is uniquely chosen to walk this path. How this is part of her story. How this is part of her poem.

How she can trust the Author Who writes beautifully and well.

  1. And you, Colleen, are one of those beautiful writers, who can journal a real story of trial and pain in such an amazing way, that everyone who reads is drawn closer to our Savior.
