I gaze in the mirror with fleshly eyes
The enemy’s voice resounds in a cry
“You’re not much to look at – a beauty you’re not
You’ll never achieve much – with what you’ve got
You’re too insecure and fear what others think
How can you make a difference
In this world that you live ?
“Look again”, comes the voice of my Father above
“Look again at yourself, but look through My eyes
Look again and you will see – the enemy lies”
So I look at myself and say “God what do You see?
What am I like Lord? – what will I be?”
“You are an ambassador of the Most High God
Part of the Royal Priesthood – a beautiful bride
You’re radiant and fragrant to those around
You’re a jewel in a million – of you I am proud”
“I’ve moulded and made you to be someone great
Your life has a purpose, a great destiny awaits
So when you see your reflection – don’t hesitate
But thank me for what you see – I never make a mistake”.
This poem I believe was inspired – I had hardly written any poetry before this and it came to me in a matter of 15 minutes. This was to be a blessing to me in the months to come as everything I had written about was to be tested in my relationships over the following year.
