Image Bearer

i am
an image bearer
Your image-
Your face,
Your hands,
Your love,
Your attributes
i carry them all
as a mother
holds her newborn
counting their fingers,
tracing their mouths,
so have You
known me,
rejoicing over my
first steps,
first words,
shushing comfortly
when i fall,
holding my being
during my frustrated fears,
i become swaddled salavation
rebirthed by Your blood
and love,
feed me
in grace
and mercy
to satisify
pangs of injustice
and selfishness,
teach me to go
in light and obedience,
for then
Your essence shines
through my image,
the image i bear
of You.
