I love poetry.
When I was younger I would write poems. I expressed my feelings through my teenage and adolescent years this way. I have many journals filled with my poetry. Going back to read through them is quite nostalgic for me – some are silly, some are sad, others are deep and some very joyful.
Each poem however, triggers a reasoning within me. The reason I wrote the poem in the first place. This expression I wanted so deeply to portray through my poetry. It’s still there.
The “workmanship” here translates ‘poiema’ in the Greek and our English word ‘poem’ stems from this to mean – something constructed or something made.
I now imagine that God in His infinite wisdom, love and creativity expressed himself in the form of a meticulous and beautifully written poem – a work from His inner most being – you and me.
We are His poetry. We are his workmanship.
Created for a purpose. On purpose.
His plan set for us before He even expressed us.
We are poetry – each of us – with our differences in gifting and talent, the intentional ways He fit us together – each tiny and complex detail – expressing the fullness of God to everyone who reads us
