Work of Art

You are stored away in a closet until they’re ready to show You off

They put You on only when you match with their outfit like a scarf

When it doesn’t seem like You would fit along with the rest of the parts

They put You back into a box until the colors they’re wearing can match with the scarf

 

I don’t want You to be an accessory that I wear only when it’s convenient

I want Your presence in my life to be radiant

To shine so bright that everyone can see Your excellence

And always know that I am fully dependent

 

On You and Your promises to me

Knowing that nothing this world could give me

Could ever compare to the life that You have for me

As I continue to honor You with my life completely

 

A scarf to me is something I pray You will never be

I hope that we can all accept You into our hearts

And remember You even when it feels like our life is falling apart

Because we know that’s when You do Your greatest work of art

 

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”

-Romans 1:16
