We Are His . . .

You write us 

as Your poetry.

We write ourselves 

penned by our actions.

Destiny is within us!

The mystery of our future 

we discover. 

Others may see it . . .

we must have it revealed,

seen through aha moments. 

Hard wired for our mystery, 

we dance with our future . . .

Cheek to cheek 

Stepping HIS song . . .

Waltzing With HIM.

Here's the verse I wrote the poem from.

We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!

Ephesians 2:10 TPT


The beauty of language translation are the meanings of the root word. In this verse the root word for workmanship is Poema which is translated poem or poetry. When you have a revelation of poetries intricacies, the prophetic inferences here are beautiful and very colorful 

God is amazing how he reveals Himself to us individually. There is such depth to our destiny and desires which we don't know are part of us. It's as if we discover ourselves as we walk life out and meet ourselves in the different circumstances of life. We are able to analyze and correct ourselves along the way, with God being our ultimate tutor through The Holy Spirit. 

Here's one of my favorite verses, along with the 100,000 others :)), which describes this process. 

I John 2:27 NKJV,

But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

You can look at this another way. God and us write the script of our lives. All the twists and turns we go through either enhance or correct that script. That's the place where our lives have color and textures added to them and is the beauty of our mystery. 

Imagine your life being painted by an artist using different paint mediums, brushes, and painting knives to etch character into your image. Some will be very bold and with deep color, which will be your main gifting or talent. Other parts will be feathered colors merged and mixed to highlight you as a person with the skill of the artist. This would be the ultimate portrait but not necessarily of your face.

There are many types of poetry writing styles and even mixtures of styles as well. Every one of them is unique as we are. Going back to the artist, imagine the variety of possibilities you would have if 100 artists were given the same project to paint your life?

There are so many rich possibilities invested in you to discover. Don't waste your time comparing yourself with others, find your own hidden treasures. 


# God calls you His poetry, how has He written your script? Have you written it down yet?

# If you had to complete this sentence, what would we read? I am going to change the world with or by . . . . . (Fill in the blank)

# Do you enjoy the times of analysis and self-correction? How would you share this revelation with a young believer?

1 Corinthians 4:5 TPT

So resist the temptation to pronounce premature judgment on anything before the appointed time when all will be fully revealed. Instead, wait until the Lord makes his appearance, for he will bring all that is hidden in darkness to light and unveil every secret motive of everyone’s heart. Then, when the whole truth is known, each will receive praise from God.
