If you (like me) love poetry and have or want to develop a deeper understanding of exactly what it means to be made in the image of God…you will love this book of over 70 poems my mentor Jennefer Payne wrote throughout her earlier journey. Beautiful pieces to convey hidden truths.
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the honor of kings to search a matter out. If you are seeking encouragement and understanding in your worship time, one of these can at times set you off on a conversation with your Father that will uncover gems of wisdom too wildly amazing to ever abandon!
Gems like this one:
You are the living Logos, the Father’s perfect Word.
What He thinks about you, is the truth to gird.
Jesus came to show us, the investment He has made;
In the oaks of righteousness, His glory is displayed.
In His image were we formed, He breathed His life from deep within.
Then soil became a living soul, and we see where we begin.
The witness is the truth; we are created as His kind.
The part which sets us free from being trapped in our mind.
The source of life which springs from us when we become aware,
Produces all the fruit we need, which was always hidden there.
When I step into the fullness, who I was always meant to be,
The promise of the ages culminates in me.
So much wisdom, inspiration, encouragement…I urge you to get this and include the reading of one poem a day in your morning meditation/worship. You will see your mind renewing according to His Word, and be amazed at the things you will be able to start thinking and creating. You are after all, made in the image of the Creator…you were made to also create!
I could just be a poetry nut…but I really do love this book!! If ever was to sing “These are a few of my favorite things…” This book for morning time…would definitely be edited in to the words of Julia Andrews (as I mix up her lyrics to accommodate MY favorite things). It has sparked a lot of amazing conversations with my God. I really think you will enjoy it!
