Still a ...
"Work in progress ..." by Wendy G

I am a daughter of the King, the perfect "I AM" …

I can see He delights in me, just as I am.

I will delight in Him, for who He is.

I am one who is blessed with His riches ...


I can see all the treasures He offers me …

I will give what I can to serve others,

I am ready to share with my sisters and brothers.

I can share His love with those who have need …

I will give what I have – in both word and deed.



I am blessed to be in His family …

I can love Him also, in response to His love …

I will rejoice in being His by adoption, chosen with love,

I am aware He holds my hand as His child,

I can see His love and patience undefiled.

I will always thank Him for my new start,

I am in awe of what He's planned –

I can truly praise Him, from my heart.

I will never really understand …
  

I am ready to follow and be guided by Him.  

I can
trust in His far-reaching wisdom.

I will believe that His plans are best.

I am improving, but not by myself …

I can learn and grow, for He is teaching me …

I will be shaped with skill and finesse …

I am daily being changed into His likeness.

I can improve myself, but it would mean

I will lean on Him - for we're a team.


I am His and I will follow His will

I can ask Him for grace and peace to "be still" ...

I will then a better person be … and all will see                 

I am
able to show His love more perfectly.

I can show His grace at work in me

I will praise and bow the knee ....
 
I am acccepted as I am and as I will be

I can change, and be changed, and still be me,

I will love, and be loved, eternally.

 

Self-Improvement Free Verse Poem writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
Write a free verse self-improvement poem, with some rhyming. Use words such as I am, I will, I can.

Author Notes
My take on the topic is that while I can improve myself by various strategies, which may produce some improvement, it is clear that if I am changed from the heart the improvement is likely to be greater, more authentic, real and long-lasting. It's not so much by self-improvement as by His transforming qualities.
"Be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12;1)

Although it is to be in free verse, the contest required some rhyme as well as the use of the words "I am", "I can", and "I will", which I have used in order throughout.
The rhyme is intermittent, fine for free verse.
Four stanzas, each of nine lines, each has three "I am ..., I can ..., I will ..." statements.


Pays one point and 2 member cents.
