Ask and See

©2013 Diana Rasmussen

When I look in the mirror
I ask and I see
What happened
to the younger me?
Is she in there
the girl I knew
before life happened
to change you?
Give me strength Lord
faith to believe
that I’m still me
despite my age.
Though wider now
with graying hair
let me shine
in spite of
wear and tear.
What the world
wants to throw away
is treasured by
You anyway.
Renew my youth
restore my mind
and help me see
Your loving
kindness
inside of me.

But God told Samuel, “Looks aren’t everything. Don’t be impressed with his looks and stature. I’ve already eliminated him. God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; God looks into the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7 MSG)
