Worldly Perceptions — Woman of God

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” –1 Samuel 16:7

Worldly Perceptions
April 20, 2013

perception 3
Who are you woman of God?
Defined by so many who know me not
Struggling to find the real me
Without reflecting through others eyes
I am a teacher leading the way
Instructing little minds in the ways of the world
I am a colleague constantly going here and there
Supporting coworkers as best I can
I am a daughter regarded so highly
With lost emotions and insecurity to spare
I am an artist relaying life in words and pictures
Bringing beauty to the ordinary
I am a musician praising the Lord with my voice
Singing praises to His glorious name
I am a helper always lending a hand
Attempting to make light the heavy load
I am an aunt admired for what I have achieved
Yet wanting to do so much more
I am a friend willing to be there
Listening and helping those I love
I am a mother trying to navigate a deceptive world
Striving to show my child the narrow way
I am a leader others seek advice from
Feeling ill equipped in my own sinfulness to show God’s light
Without the title who are you?
Where will you find yourself woman of God?
