I started this poem nearly 2 years ago, but couldn’t get the beginning or ending right. I tried finishing it several times, but it just wouldn’t come together. Tonight, I opened it up once again and God gave me just the words to complete it.So after 22 months, here’s the finished poem.
How do you measure what you’re worth,
What value you contain?
Objectively, what price is fair
For body, soul & brain?
A chemist may not pay too much
For what you are made of.
Your worth is so much more to those
Who look on you with love.
But there is One Who truly knows
Just how much you are worth.
For you, He left His heavenly throne
And came to die on earth.
The Maker of the universe
Came down to die for you.
Do you reflect this awesome worth
In everything you do?
If God, our heavenly Father, thinks
You’re worth the price He paid,
Remember you are valuable:
A treasure that He made.
So don’t let others tell you that
Your worth is very small.
The Lord of lords, the King of kings,
Thinks you are worth it all!

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
