ďYou are Godís workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.Ē (eph 2:10-NIV)

The work workmanship is derived from the Greek work poema, from which we get the English word poem. In some ways we could say, we are Godís poem. Does God rhyme? Is he free verse?

What would Godís poem look like? Look in the mirror. I have a scar near the base of my neck. Godís poem is missing a thyroid. Are we defective? Obviously my thyroid didnít work well. It all depends what you mean by defective.

Look beyond what you can see in the mirror. You are bound to see sometimes you are incomplete of the things that God meant to give us. In music, there is a term, called creative dissonance. A chord is deliberately misplayed and grates on our senses. The hearers wait for the resolving final chord that says, ďYes, thatís it.Ē

My life has had a lot of dissonance lately. There are parts of my life that seem to have little rhyme or reason. A career was taken away and the resulting notes are not pleasant or seem worthwhile. How long will you make me wait for that beautiful chord that makes things seem complete and worth hearing and living?

As for the rhyme Lord, you know Iíve never been able to do it. You give me visions and they are complete by the touch of your heart.

We are Godís poem. We donít get a chance to really constructively critique it. How would you rate something conveyed by heaven?

We are carried by the mists of Heaven,
Sent of heaven with hearts to leaven.
A touch, a stroke, a world to possess
In the heart of His caress.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Just fascinating - so much to ponder here. God's poem. I'll be thinking about this for a while. Thanks.
