Image Bearer

by Rachel Jamerson

The creator placed you,
In a vessel made of clay,
One he shaped so wonderfully,
For which you did not pay.

Created by his hand,
With tender loving care,
Seeing as here on earth,
His image you would bear.

He placed within the vessel,
A tiny speck of light,
To point the way and comfort you,
As you travel through the night.

You'll encounter many thorns,
Be filled with much despair,
With bloody feet, you'll push ahead,
For the pain with him, you'll share.

Father, please enlighten us,
Lest we bow our head in shame,
The reason why that serving you,
Is met with so much pain.

Though the enemy hinders you,
His efforts are all in vain,
For the light within your soul,
Cannot be snuffed by pain.

He throws you to the ground,
Then stomps upon your frame,
For every good, there seems to be,
Some form of hurt and pain.

The thorns that prick your flesh,
Will always be unfair,
That done to you is done to him,
Whose image that you bear.
