Let's Be Poetic

In His Image

Inspired by my understanding of Genesis 1:26 ♡

“And in all this, we see God at the centre of everything as He intentionally created human beings to be His image bearers.”

‘Made by Design’ – Sex, Purity and the Longing of a Girl’s Heart (YouVersion Plan)

Lord, you are too intentional 
too detailed 
too unconventional 

I mean, you deposited 
Yourself in me 
Who does that? 
Who sees - truly sees, me
The way you do 

It’s so profound 
It’s so new 
A new means of thought 
That you give yourself up 
For us 
Though you wanted that cup 
To pass over  
Because it was scary, that’s the truth 

Death for something you had no part in 
Something you didn’t do 
& several things we did not fess up to 
Because you needed us to look like you 
To be renewed 

Restored & honoured 
Given a rightful place in your arms 

Veil tears 
Earth shakes 
Dead are risen 

Actions preceding more actions 
Love outpouring 
A maker showing His glory 
Showing His face 
Never seeking to replace 
But to restore, to revive, to erase 

Erase all the burned matter 
The things we shouldn’t have sought after 
The things He knows weren’t designed for us to do 
Yet we gravitate towards
That shock factor 
That mildew 

Why can’t I be satisfied? 
Why can’t I be filled? 
For only you can satisfy 
You made me 
You been knew 
You’re aware of every little thing I do 

Every move
Every touch
Every thought 
Every thrust 

As I force myself onto sin 
Because my flesh says it’s okay to let him in 
But you wait outside 
Waiting to hug me 
To be near me as I cry 

Waiting for me to speak 
To confess, to be me again 
Not looking elsewhere 
For all I found in you 
But somehow forgot that was the #mood 

Whenever I’m with you 
I feel safe 
I feel brave 
I feel okay 
I feel sane 
Sane enough to smile 
To know that this life 
Can produce joy 

But only if it’s rooted in you 
Only if I never lose sight
of what the mirror says 
that I’m made in your image 
- I look like you.

My thoughts are best expressed by writing.
So that's what I do - I write.

It's how I make sense of it all.
My prayer is that someone somewhere is blessed or is able to relate to what I write.

"Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them..." ~ Romans 12:6
