ποίημα (poy'-ay-mah), Greek
1) ballad, poem
2) a thing made, a work, workmanship
3) a masterpiece
4) a work of God as creator
a) made with a purpose
Most translations of the New Testament adapt this Greek word into English as workmanship, but I prefer a more literal translation when it comes to this particular verse:
I am a poem, written by the hand of God...
This speaks volumes to me. I write. A lot. I know how much the pieces I've written mean to me. I understand the emotion and thought that goes into writing them.
They belong to me, and I love them. They are a part of me. They mean something.
I'm overwhelmed with love when I think that this, this is what I am to God. I am His poem. His ballad. He wrote me, and as with all things written, I do have meaning.
