Here is a poem I wrote about how different things would be if we put our trust in the Lord.
If only I trusted that I am worthy of love, I wouldn’t let people use and abuse me.
If only I trusted that I was chosen to be a child of God, I wouldn’t dwell so much on the times my earthly father disappointed me or hurt my feelings.
If only I trusted that I am God’s masterpiece, I wouldn’t believe what others have said about my appearance.
If only I trusted that I am holy and dearly loved, I wouldn’t listen to the hurtful comments people have said to me.
If only I believed I was an heir to the King of Kings, I wouldn’t spend so much time and energy trying to acquire material things.
If only I trusted that I belonged to a royal priesthood, I wouldn’t be so worried about fitting in here on earth.
If only I trusted that my sins are forgiven, I wouldn’t spend my time beating myself up over mistakes in the past.
If only I trusted that God had a plan for me and a purpose for my life, I would be willing to step out of my comfort zone and into His.
Shelly, this is fantastic!! Our true identity is what’s been firmly on my heart this week, and this amazing poem says it perfectly (i just have to reblog)! Thanks so much for sharing! God bless, your loving brother, Steve. 🙂
