POEMA

“We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus…” (Ephesians 2:10
The word for “workmanship: is “poema.”

Each of us is a poem, written by God, adding lines and stanzas as we live out our days.
some phrases are joyful; others are sad.
Some are funny, bringing smiles and laughter;
Other lines are tragic and sorrowful.
Many parts of our poems seem mundane; yet without them, there would be no depth or substance.

Each poem tells of God somehow:
His love, strength, creativity or great sense of humor.
Line after line details His goodness and unfathomable wisdom
Pictures made from being and doing show His glory.
His deep compassion, hope, joy and overwhelming greatness are reflected in us.

Each poem is a unique work of art
That demonstrates aspects of God as no other can.
His paradoxes are spoken in all languages;
Shades of color and light shape His reality.
And it is only when all creation is put together that we even come close to expressing Him.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
