A Poem and Thoughts

 When Your Drive Does Change

Most times in life things do rearrange
Causing one's foothold to miss and slip
When in your life your drive does change

Your goal has taken on that of strange
For what once was now hard to grip
Most times in life things do rearrange

To this your thoughts you learn to exchange
Giving new reasoning to ownership
When in your life your drive does change

In this time of strange, God you rely on
For with Him He recalls your strength of past
When the drive in your life leaves and is gone

Especially when your life goes so fast
And then to that day you do realize
Your purpose in life to new it cast

As to new purpose your drive revise
For most times in life things do rearrange
Bur your purpose to God is no surprise
When in your life your drive does change

Thoughts: It seems with most people, there is something that drives one in life to keep going, even through the hard times. And when that thing (purpose) is gone, one may slip and find it hard to regain one's footing; thus, purpose for keep going. For example, take my experience as a single mother raising four children by myself.  Because of my love and devotion to them, no matter our situation, it was this love and devotion for them that kept me going, even through the hard times. That was my drive and my life. Then they all grew up, and my purpose to keep going, was all of the sudden, gone; thus, my drive in life had to change. At first, I was happy I was no longer responsible for them (other than occasionally helping them when I could and lending an ear). Then, I was lost saying "well, what do I do now". I no longer possessed a purpose; or at least, that's the way it seemed to me.  I needed something or someone to devote myself to in regaining my drive in life as it was the love and devotion to raising my children that keep me going. That's when, as circumstances in my life played out, I was brought back to my Christian roots and was led back to God. He gave me drive again; thus, purpose. Still my path seems a little slippery due this change in drive as I gain more and more understanding of my purpose now; but, at least now my drive is back, even thou it has changed. 

Side Note: Someone recently told me, when I mentioned to them how hard a certain situation was (how heartbroken it left me), saying "You need to be tuff". If I could only tell that person, "You have no idea how tuff I have been and still are, only that my life has changed and I am still-somewhat- getting a grip on my drive in life". As Christians we are supposed to love someone enough to encourage one another and not laugh or make fun of someone when one is expressing concerns in something they are not used to or when one is experiencing a change in their life.

Happy Valentine, Love of my heart!

  “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:14-19.

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). "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God," (Romans 8:16. NKJV). "By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit." (1 John 4:13. NKJV). "For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all b

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
