God's Image by Teresa Mathews


 
     Before the world was, I was there
And in my heart you were.
I could see the child that you would be
And the things that would occur.

I made you in my image

So you are precious in my sight.
Your very being I gave to you
When into your body I breathed life.

No matter where you go

I will always be there.
Watching out for you
Keeping you in my care.

No one will ever harm you

I will keep you near.
My angels will watch over you
To make your pathway clear.

You are my dear beloved

I will hold you in my hand.
Until that day in Heaven
Before me you will stand.

  4. TERESA, your poem really touched me this morning! As I've shared personally, there's a few things on my mind today... and then I read your poem and now I'm tearing up but in a good way. I know God is reminding me that He is in control and He is always there for me, just as He's always been.
    Thank you for being His instrument, and CARRIE for making it possible! Love you guys!!

  8. Okay, this made me cry, Teresa ... I know, I know, admittedly not a difficult thing to do, but then not everybody can do it to me, but you always do. Like Marian said, absolutely beautiful, this gift of yours and how God uses it!

    Love you!
