Poetry

I am

I am the woman at the well

The sinner thrown to her knees

The woman wiping perfume with her hair

Mary, Martha and the rest of these

 

I am the thief on the cross

Zaccheus and a Pharisee

Judas, a friend and a traitor

I am the least of these

 

I am Saul as he was blinded

I am Mary at the open grave

A witness on the road to Damascus

By my faith, I am saved

 

Luke 7:47-50

47 “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” 48 Then Jesus said to the woman, “Your sins are forgiven.”

49 The men at the table said among themselves, “Who is this man, that he goes around forgiving sins?”

50 And Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

    1. It would be really cool if I could also see myself in all the talented, amazing, perfect people too. Just kidding, thanks so much for the likes and comment.

      1. I think it takes a great deal of courage to see yourself in people that are less than perfect. Understanding where you are is like standing at the trailhead of life. Enjoy the journey.
