New "My Form Created" Poem - The Lord Had Other Plans

The Lord Had Other Plans

I know how far reaching He spans
That time is sometimes what is needed
When to my life the Lord had other plans

As to the situation I'd clasp my hands
Down on my knees as I pleaded
For I know how far reaching He spans

To His plan my life fell, not man's
As man's plans to my life growth receded
When to my life the Lord had other plans

Now that time has taken it's past
I see why to man's plan my life did suffer
As growth in sufferance His plans recast

Although at times life did get rougher
When to His plans I knew to obey
But to this my being became tougher

At last I understand His ways
Now I know how far reaching He spans
Time and space to my life He gave array
When to my life the Lord had other plans

Thoughts: You know, this one touches on a personal note. Sometimes waiting on the Lord can be difficult; especial when waiting for something or someone you've waited for an extended amount of time. But if it is truly of the Lord to have what you've waited for one must learn if it is yours to have He will eventually grant it to you in His timing; not yours. Trying to force something to happen in your own timing never works out well. Too, being faithful and devoted to the Lord means to allow Him to work things out in His own timing and to know the Lord may have others plans for your life; must better plans. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope" (Jeremiah 29:11. NKJV). I've learned this the hard way and know now for my life the lord has other plans that I can't wait to see; but, I will wait for the plans He has for my life. Wonderful Plans!

Holy Spirit- Acrostic Poem

"But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him." (1John 2:27. NKJV) "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13. NKJV). "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." (John 14:26. NKJV).

Two poems preview for "Growing Strong in The Lord - part one"

  Here two more preview poems from my Growing Strong in The Lord Collection. These are from where I left off in my Part One previews. I will be mostly posting preview poems, as promised, from my published books. Rarely will you see a new poem here on this site. These two poems from my Growing Strong in The Lord- Part One, "I Am Sowed By God's Words" , came out of knowing God was with me during an impact with my car and a full grown and huge doe deer. I listed these two poems just days apart, as I still felt the grace God delivered me that fateful day; reminding me of His grace and presence throughout my life.  It's Not Luck, But Grace ⭐ When one is thrown a curve ball Like something unexpected takes place That can bring an unforeseen pitfall One holds tight and does brace As one calls on the Lord above all He then sees you through this place In the aftermath you then recall The Lord got you through, you embrace For He can, no matter how big or small And then you rea
