Treasure Island

Roy Allen


Today... 'God my Maker'


I was intricately woven upon His heavenly loom
As He carefully knit me together in my mothers womb
In that most secret of places where my conception took place
Ready at the time of my birth to enter the human race

Before the first moment of my earthly existence began
God had written in His book my inmost being and life plan
Each syllable penned and words in calligraphy composed
There sentences were handwritten and the paragraphs disclosed,

From the first chapter of my birth to the last one of my death
Each had been thoughtfully written before I'd taken a breath
I praise God that I am fearfully and wonderfully made
The handiwork of My Great Creator is in me displayed

Living letters turned into syllables and then became words.
These words began to form phrases and then sentences emerged.
Chapters made out of many paragraphs were arranged with care
each carefully written by the in the book of my life there.

Now my life is like a book to be read by everyone
because it speaks of God's Grace and the wonders Jesus has done.
For in His mercy before the world was made and time began
He had included Roy Allen in His great Salvation plan.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Created by God and fashioned out of His love
With a 'designer label' from my Lord above.
'Made in God's image' is written for all to see
Fearfully and wonderfully God has made me.

***********

Job 35: 10—10 But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker,
who gives songs in the night,
11 who teaches us more than he teaches the beasts of the earth
and makes us wiser than the birds in the sky? '

Psalm 139: 13-16
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

All quotations ©NIV

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'God my Maker'
