Do You Love You?

Do you love you?

Do you understand,

That you are part of His divine plan?

You were not a mishap because a man forgot to drawback.

For Psalm 139:14 says that you are fearfully and wonderfully made?

That means you, my sister, were swayed

And knitted comfortably

in your mother’s womb.

These days so many women are running to doctors

As though they were proctors in God’s elaborate masterpiece.

For the women are looking at the body parts of others in order

To inject that they may project another image from which God created them to be?

All the while it’s because when they look in the mirror they do not like what they see?

I ask again, do you love you?

Woman, for you are still made in the image of God as told in Genesis.

That may not sit well with you.

But the one who knows the number of hairs on your head

Didn’t plan for you to med

The changes on the outside

To heal your inside.

That’s His job.

Woman, do you love you?

Do you know the one who created the heavens and the earth

Organized your birth?

He above has so much love.

I ask again,

Do you love you?
