What I Am Worth // Day 18


Worth is a mirror,
A shining image of what is.
How the light catches my skin and eye,
The gleam of a dream
I hope to be,
I think?

Then I see how a dream is not
The me I am
That you see.

Just as I see you differently
Than you see your skin & eyes.

Worth is deep like soul,
Tide of God rushing in and out
Washing our faces
Clean & seeing
The shining promise of the time,
Shaped gems & pebbles,
We are.

This is why I let my daughter
See my bare face.
I tell her the scars are to me, are evidence of
What God’s love is,
God’s hope IS,


I take her to the beach
Whenever I can.
The water shows our skin, white and shining in the sun with shells
We feel worth in the water & the knowing of our God.

True worth comes in knowing God loves us in spite of how worthy we feel. Tweet This
