Body Acceptance - my poem entitled

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Renewed by Marisa Marshall

This body You have blessed me with,
Was once my enemy.
I tried so hard to escape it presence,
But there was no where I could flee.

A stranger in a shell of flesh,
But still part of who I am.
A place I could spend an entire life,
Detached, disconnected, condemned.

Yet in my brokenness and despair,
You lovingly came to me.
And set Your Spirit inside this body,
So that I could truly be set free.

Free from the disconnect,
Free from the shame,
Free from the condemnation,
Free from the pain.

I was wonderfully made to be connected,
Body, soul, spirit living as one.
Just like You have been for eternity,
Father, Spirit, Son.

My body is now a living and holy sacrifice,
Acceptable to You.
My old self has passed away,
Now is Christ...I am renewed.
