IF: written by a 16 year old girl on the street*

If all lips spoke the truth,
All pride was cast aside,
Greed was packed and stored away,
And jealousy subside,
If love could rule the universe,
Kindness was sown to every race,
Then one could glance into a mirror
And view God in His face …

It did the same to me Ali.
We got this on a printed handout at our last Overcmers In Christ fellowship as a supplement for the studies in section one of the program: TRUTH.
Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Yes, a remarkable read. The reality that we all bear the image of God resounds in her writing. How far the human race fell! Only a Redeemer can reunite one's image to one's Creator. May this young writer find Him, and thus, see as in a glass the image of the One she [he] seeks.

Hi ~ angi :),
I so appreciate your comment and I agree with you. The only way to reunite ourselves with the "Being in whose Image we are created" is through our Redeemer.
Thank you & Blessings

Oh my this is simply inspired no doubt. A voice crying out into the dark for help.

I just know in my heart that God reached down and touched this young lady in a very special way.

I also am very impressed with your chalk image on the previous post. I think Aslan you are possibly a blessing that God has deposited into my life.
God Bless,
