An Unfinished Work

Here’s a poem that Lauren, my wife, wrote. It blessed me greatly. I pray you will be blessed, too.

I am an unfinished work of God
He designed me for His good purpose
With His plans in mind He formed me
He knows me well
In this world filled with evil
I fight through the barriers that box me in
I battle against the pressures to conform
I struggle with the expectations of others
and what they would reshape me to be
I wrestle with my inner thoughts
as I hear my own words of self condemnation
Amid the noise I fail to see what He sees
and I fail to hear who He says I am
I am a child of God
I am being renewed
He refreshes my soul
He refines my innermost parts
He faithfully continues His work
I am His unfinished work
