I Am a Temple

I am a temple.
He stands before me.
He turns over
my money tables.

I am a temple.
He lays hold
of my salesman.
He smashes their
cages of doves,

I am a temple.
He tears the curtain
of my holy of holies.

I am a temple.
He cleans out
the bazaar
I have made
of myself.

Ditto, all of the above, Glynn. I love this poem.

As the first comment began with "Oh, my"... that's exactly what was hitting my heart before I even pulled the "comment" system into place. Worth carrying before the Lord and asking Him where those Temple portions need to be addressed very specifically in my life, where repentance needs to be infused. Thanks.

I stand there too Glynn. This is so inspirational - so true.

I've been thinking about "Do you not know that you are the temple of God?" a lot this year. This? This is beautiful ... I feel like it was written for the path I'm on. Thank you for sharing.
