Something To Believe In


Wild Child


If I were a wildflower 
You would know precisely where I was.
You would walk to my exact location, 
bend down, and pluck me out of the ground.
You would examine me, 
declare that I am beautifully 
and wonderfully made,
place me in Your pocket and 
continue Your stroll. 

I would not question Your choice. 
I would not list my endless flaws, 
nor would I compare myself with 
the other flowers You have made.
 I would know that a wildflower is supposed 
to be unique and possess a distinctive beauty 
all their own.

But I am not a wildflower. 
I am a person. A woman. A girl.
I fail to recognize that it is 
You who has sought after me.
You, who has designed me and who delights in me.
You, who has picked me up, 
placed me in Your pocket 
and declared that I am Your's. 



He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me. 2 Samuel 22:20

The LORD delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love. Psalm 147:11
