The words to this poem began over 20 years ago. I was living and studying abroad at the time. They flowed as if from God’s heart directly to mine. I hope it speaks to you as it has often spoken to me.
To whom do you compare yourself?
Do you think it is unwise?
By what standard do you measure?
Looking through imperfect eyes
On each is My Designer’s mark
Stamped “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made”
Each a masterpiece of art
For which a great price has been paid
As I’ve purposed, I’ve created
Never two to be the same
And it was I from earth’s foundation
Who has called you by your name!
So for a glimpse—a longing stare
At who you’re meant to be
Gaze at the mirror of My Word
And your reflection you will see
Don’t walk away and then forget
The image you behold
Keep fixed on it—hold tight to it
And a changing will unfold
Yes, a changing to a likeness
That is far beyond compare
To any earthly image
That once did hold your stare
