Desperate to end Waiting

In considering the act of mating
Slow is a blessing to God's best
Don't be so desperate to end waiting

Settling for thought can be negating
When attention given that expressed
In considering the act of mating

Attention in thought one then debating
Where contentment of heart God attest
Don't be so desperate to end waiting

Waiting can become a blessing
As one realizes it's to God be content
Because to one's heart He's addressing

Where to your waiting He sends one meant
Not in settling for second-best
In contentment your time is then spent

Knowing your heart He has assessed
In considering the act of mating
God fills you content better than the rest
Best not be desperate to end waiting

Thoughts: Sometimes we can get anxious in ending our singleness in the waiting for a mate. And, sometimes this anxiety can lead to settling for second-best or worse as one is given attention by another. Also, some try to make this happen, when trying to acquire God's best, it's all in His timing; no need to do anything in trying. Waiting can be a blessings. "But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth" (Psalm 37: 9b. NKJV). It is always a blessing to wait on the Lord's timing in any situation; but in particular if you want His best in a mate. "Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him..." (Psalm 37: 7a. NKJV). I learned this, in what seemed like a life long lesson, as I took to the first that came along (well, they picked me). Settling for the first to give attention in my life lead to some disappointment and great discontentment in becoming a single mother; unfortunate lesson learned. Much wiser now, years, even decades later, I know now to wait. And, in waiting am very content in giving my heart to the Lord to protect and to give away to the right one; when and if that time comes, in His timing. Although, much older and up in age, I do not worry and refuse to live my life in discontentment in not having a mate, as the Lord my God is my best, for now and forever; if that's what He plans for me. I live in waiting for my future in His blessings in contentment and know the future He has for me is and will be a triumphant win. My joy/contentment is with the Lord. "You will show me the path of life; In your presence is fullness of joy; At your right hand are pleasures forevermore" (Psalm 16:11. NKJV).  And, in waiting He is my strength: "...for the joy of the Lord is your strength(Nehemiah 8:10. NKJV). Contentment in God gives joy and joy produces strength; strength in waiting. If you are a female in waiting, are you waiting on a Bozo (not worth giving of yourself ) or a Boaz (Read Book of Ruth Chapter 2 for Boaz qualities)? This also applies to males in waiting on a Ruth or a Proverbs 31 woman (Read Ruth & Proverbs 31 for these qualities in a woman)! A piece of advice: It's not good to settle for someone you think you might can change later once married; it doesn't always work like that; that's a mistake many make in dating. If these qualities aren't there before, or at least something he or she is seriously working towards (everyone is not always on the same level of spiritual maturity), then they want be there later. And, sometimes you are not where your spiritual maturity needs to be; you may need some spiritual growing to be ready for a mate. And that's okay. It's best to let God work His plan for you, and in you, in patience and in His joy. A note: In marring, one brings into the marriage what one practiced before the marriage. For instance; if one practiced abstaining from sex outside of marriage in respect to this as Christian morals, then one will be able or is more likely to be faithful in this in marriage because he or she has already learned how to control this human urge before marriage. Waiting can be a preparation period/season for God's best. It's always best to wait on God in His timing of giving His best; even if His best for you is to remain single. Meanwhile, try to learn to be content in living in the fullness of His blessings He has for you now and not be so desperate to end waiting.   

Where is Your Source of Contentment and Joy? 
The One True Source--Jesus Christ!

"These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full" (John 15:11. NKJV). 

Waiting is a prerequisite for God's best!

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).

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
