Being A Woman of the Word

This short poem will inspire you. You may want to put it in your Bible as a reminder of what it means to be a "woman of the Word." #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

I wrote this poem years ago, praying it would reflect my life. I hope it encourages, challenges and inspires you to love Christ more.

This passage of Scripture is my inspiration for this poem: "I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ." Philippians 3:8-9

A Woman of the Word

The Bible wore her imprint
It’s cover soft from use
The pages rubbed and wrinkled
The binding coming loose

And even if this Christian
And her Bible were apart
She still would have it with her
Hidden in her heart

Oh make me such a woman, Lord
Who hungers to be fed
Who cherishes a line from You
More than her daily bread

And when my days are over
May it be my epitaph
“She longed to spend
more time with Him
And now is doing that.”
