Today’s Writing Prompt: PERSPECTIVE



The difficult question plagues my mind
It burdens my very soul
I wonder if she knows Who You are
I desperately want her to know
I tell her Who You are to  me
And what You have done for all
But how do I explain your death on the cross
When she only thinks of dead batteries in a doll?
I cry out to You for answers
Show me what to do and say
So that she can know Your tender love
And follow in Your way
But lovingly You speak to me
My child, do not worry or fear
I see your desire for her to know
I’ve witnessed every tear
Remember, I AM the One Who created her
She’s exactly who I knew she would be
Do you trust that I can speak to her
And show her all of Me?
It may be differently than what you know
Or what others might expect it to be
But I, the Lord, designed her heart and mind
And I speak perfectly.


Cami was skillfully wrought by the Lord, Who chose to knit together each delicate part of her according to His plan; therefore, He is able to meet each physical and spiritual need that she has.

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” 
(Psalms 139: 13,14)
