This is me ~ who am I?

This is me
This is who I am ~
and who I am to become

But who am I to become?
I do not know

Come and see
He says
but I am fearful
of the new
of what is to be

I shut my eyes tight
turn away
avert my head
lest I see
that which I cannot yet

Yet I stop.

And in the stillness
the quiet
reflect upon his words
those words of wisdom poured forth
through thousands upon thousands of ears

What do they truly mean
to me?

Everything I am
I have
each gift
is of God

So it would follow that He would know why
and for what purpose
if I so choose to…

He knows every hair upon my head
by number
I cannot hide
He knows me
sees me
Loves me

Believes in me
and sees
what and who I can be
will become

Artist's Description

I stumbled across this piece of writing today while hunting for something else. I wrote it in January 2002, over 8 years ago, in response to and after reflecting upon the morning’s readings and preaching in church.

And when I say ‘I’ wrote it, well I’m actually not at all certain I did, as it simply wrote itself.

But as so often happens when re-visiitng writings of years gone by, I am amazed at who I was when I wrote it and where I have travelled since then. And sometimes there is a poignancy about such inward self reflection and examination.
And revelation at God’s hand at work in me and in my life.
