WHO is this Renown Poet Writing About?



👓Ever read a poem and wondered, “What in the world is this talking about?!”🤷🏽🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏼‍♂️


I have. Especially during my college years sitting in Literature classes. Oh how I hoped the prof wouldn’t call on me to share what I thought the poem was about! 😱🤦🏼‍♀️


I found, however, that if you take the time to CONSIDER the poet and REFLECT on the subject for which the words he/she were penned, you could begin to get a clearer understanding.


Interestingly...God is into POETRY! And His subject is YOU!


“For we are God's masterpiece.

He has created us anew in Christ Jesus...” Ephesians 2:10


YOU are God’s masterpiece!


As I listened to today's devotional on Lectio 365, the author mentioned "the word [‘masterpiece’] in this passage is actually from the Greek word ‘poiēma’, from which we get the word ‘poem’.


According to the apostle Paul, the life of every believer is a UNIQUE EXPRESSION of God’s masterful, loving creativity."


You & I are God’s poetry!


😓And what do we all too often do? We try copying all the other “poems” around us with the idea that our own unique “poem” is just not good enough.😢


That’s like telling a world-renowned Poet that their poems are lacking.🤭


🙏🏻Lord, Help me to discover a little more of the poetry that You are uniquely writing in and through my life today.


In Jesus name,

Amen


Ever had a poet write a poem about YOU?

Dayna Mazucca, a published poet, has written a poem about me. She wrote it just after God allowed us to meet over Zoom and share our stories together.
