God Identified

Posted on Updated on

This week’s Poetry Tuesday feature is a poem about trying to create our own identity and coming to the place of realizing we can only find our true identity in Christ. Be blessed my friends.

God Identified

Who are we?
Searching for ourselves
Trying to build a dream
That always seems to fail

Spinning imaginations
Out of control
Creating an image
On which to hold

Forgetting that it’s simple
Looking the wrong way
Focused on self
Forgetting to pray

All that we need
All that we are
He already gave
And bore the scars

Ask our Father for
Identity revealed
Based in the truth
Not in how we feel

A lesson we learn
In God identified
Created with purpose
Delivered, transformed and sanctified.

Ephesians 1:4 According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love
