Your Little Gem

Your Little Gem

Your Little Gem

Like a little gem
Lord, You're keeping me
in Your private jewel box
where I'm safe in Thee.
Despite my imperfections
I'm wonderfully designed,
but to meet Your standards
I have to be refined.
It hurts to be examined
by Your brilliant light
under constant observation
in Your flawless sight.

I cringe when You plunge me
in Your cleaning solution
to scrub away the dross,
impurities and pollution.
I don't like to be tossed
in Your polishing machine,
but it helps me sparkle,
stay spotless and clean.

When You died on the cross
Your life You gave,
for a little lost gem
You chose to save.
I'm one among many
under close inspection,
thankful to be a part
of YOUR gem collection.

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
