You Know Me Well


Pondering Job 40:1-5

You Know Me Well, O God

Who am I?
How often have I asked that same question?
For today, I am not made up of all that I saw and
dreamed of yesterday.
Yet tomorrow I may be more.
Am I yet a hypocrite? A weakling hidden in the middle?
Who am I yet?
These words mock me.
I am mocked by my own pronouncements.
As I did in adolescence, I
struggle with my identity, my centering.
Whoever I am, you know me God.
I am your servant.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
