Set in Stone-A Poem

A package came in the mail today
for me--
it said on the envelope.
I tore it open and looked inside.
There was joy on every page 
of The Book I found,
hard won joy from my Jesus
who said He was enough
to set me free
because He loved me.
"You're chosen," I read,
(me? imagine!)
treasured like a bride
(because I am, you know).
He said He came
because I am valuable,
worth dying for,
beloved as a child
(for I am, you know)
worth healing,
one wound-in-the-light
at a time.

I heard someone say
I think this is the manual for
how to be whole.
This poem is prompted by my reading of the book "Love Idol" by Jennifer Dukes Lee, releasing on April 1st (available March 21st on Amazon.)  
The words in bold are on a "Preapproved" printable available on Jennifer's website here.

What kind of lies do we worship and worry about instead of looking at Jesus?  
THAT is the question....there are some answers inside this book.


  1. Jody - beautiful words here. We are treasures more loved than we can fathom. Love Jennifer's message of being pre-approved by Jesus.

  2. Jody~The poem captures the joy and essence of Jennifer's book. Enjoyed this much.
