Before I was Born by Raymond A. Foss
While I was in My Mother’s Womb

Selected by my Maker
chosen by the Creator
to serve in this time and place
called to witness
known by my Savior
Before I was born
in my mother’s womb
God knew me
forming me, molding me
filling me
with His Spirit
to be poured out
to be shared, light
shining my witness
to God’s endless grace
light in the darkness
for the whole human race

January 14, 2011 and January 15, 2011 (last 2 lines)
written at the House of Purpose Coffeehouse
