I Want To Be A Lake
by: Jacquie Wagner

I want to be a lake ~
still, glass flat
reflecting, jade green,
His standing, multi-membered forest,
and flying friends in silver sky, 
oh Majesty! 
a loving message
His creation ~ 
to send out and back
praise for His awesome work! 

A lake? but an ocean! 
Surging, powerful, relentless ~ 
faithful icon of His determined
insistent grace! 

An ocean? perhaps a lighthouse! 
The introvert’s delight!
Tall, solitary, overlooking
the beyond beautiful
yet sending forth His saving light! 
What better?

Who I am in Truth ~ 
child of God, 
His image-bearer,
beloved daughter, 
ambassador for Christ,
following the Good Shepherd
as He leads to the lost,
the broken, the bound,
reaching with His redemption
and healing ~ Life!
