His Thoughts

I wrote this poem June 14, 2016.  My devotional that day assigned me to write briefly about how God may think of me.  This is what flowed out of that time sitting in my back garden in the cool of the day.

  • When my chin is down, my face forlorn,

You never stare at me with scorn.

You see each part of me you knit,

And smile above in love and bliss.

  • The scars, the flaws, the fears I see,

Are far removed from memory.

In grace and peace I feel the sun,

And realize this journey has just begun.

  • As I delight in your creation here,

I sense above the atmosphere,

A change in me to know your thoughts;

For I was chosen and then bought.

  • Free of constraints and limitations,

I can lift my hands in adoration.

You, Oh Lord, above all things,

To you alone my heart will sing.

  •  Reveling in, basking in, receiving your smile,

Here I may just sit for awhile.

To you who knew all my days before,

All praise and worship forevermore.

 

  • As I delight in your creation here,

I sense above the atmosphere,

A change in me to know your thoughts;

For I was chosen and then bought.
