A Bespoke Savior


“I will begin as you began*,”
He whispered,
“But I will suffer what you ought
That you might not.

“I am your Bespoke Savior.

“Don’t try to shape Me
To fit your purposes
Though —
Let Me shape you
For Mine.

You can be bespoke too.”


Quite honestly, I was not familiar with the word BESPOKE.

I thought it sounded King James-ish. I could picture angels bespeaking or God bespeaking — and in the end, that’s the direction I took.

Bespoke definitely means something different, though, than what I thought.

From oxforddictionaries.com



1. Made for a particular customer or user:
‘a bespoke suit’
‘bespoke kitchens’
‘bespoke software systems’
‘group tours and bespoke itineraries’

From Wikipedia:

Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. It may be altered or tailored to the customs, tastes, or usage of an individual purchaser.

* Jesus is fully God and fully man. His beginning is before all time — and that’s not the beginning I was thinking of. I was thinking of the helpless baby beginning — dependent, weak, human.
