A Little about Me

Over at dVerse Poets Pub we’re celebrating the 4-year anniversary of the pub with Marina’s prompt that calls us to get to know each other a little better. Each poet is to pick six words—three that describe us and three that describe things or people we are grateful for. Then we are to write a poem of no more than twelve lines using those six words.

My words are: beloved, fearless, writer, grace, encouragement, beauty

A Little about Me

I know deep in my heart that I am beloved
for my God has told me so
His Word is my evidence
His grace is my proof

Once known as the fearful one
now I stand strong and fearless
Confident of my purpose, sure of my salvation
Thankful for the encouragement
of friends, family, and my God

I am a writer, not because I write, but simply because
I was created with a passion to share the beauty
of my Creator and His creation

    I so love how strong and sure this is. And the word choices of fearless and beloved. It reminds me, as I am walking through a storm myself, of the sureness of His grace and His love and protection. Thank you.

    I love the closing stanza. It completely captures your relationship with God and who you are.

    “His Word is my evidence
    His grace is my proof”

    My pre-teen daughter is struggling with her beliefs, so this really touches me. You’re so right. Grace IS the proof we need. In the moments of greatest suffering, desperation, and emptiness, nothing can pull us up other than grace.

    • There’s nothing wrong with struggling with beliefs — it means there are beliefs there to care about. God will be with her in the struggle and I pray grace does serve as the proof she needs. Peace, Linda

    Is it this line where you say you cheated and combined it into one?
    ‘I am a writer, not because I write, but simply because’
    I think it works perfectly as one line – and in fact that whole final stanza is just perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing. I really like your word choices – fearless and beloved – how wonderful!

  13. If we’d been able to choose more than six words, I certainly would have added grace. And, fearless, too. And don’t they go hand-in-hand.

    When you know – that is all that matters. It frees you to do what you are called to do, and not have that dictated to you by the world.
