New Blog!

 Hi guys,  I know I haven’t been very active here, but there’s a good reason. I’m in transition to a new to me logging site. Sense the domain hooked to this site does not run out for some months you will on occasion see a post here. To check out my new blog go to my author’s site link below.

A Poem of Thought

  What I Did To Myself

Blaming the other rather than oneself
I have often done throughout my life
Lord help me through what I did to myself

I've not noticed the position itself
That I placed on us causing strife
Blaming the other rather than oneself

Realizing what I've done to our-self
Knowing it's affecting my afterlife
Lord help me through what I did to myself

All I could see was me being right
In trying to remain with you strong
Going on in that situation of plight

For in the situation I thought I belong
Giving the other my essence of
Knowing to this my fault all along

Gave the other my life a place thereof
Blaming the other rather than oneself
Knowing, in this I pray to God above
Lord help me through what I did to myself

Thoughts: It's real easy to put the blame on the other when a situation turns sour. I know I've done this sometimes throughout my life. Life is hard and letting people into your life is even harder in today's techno society where fakeness and scamming has become rapid. Heck, it's even hard face to face to make a true honest connection due today's society of "me". In making these connections one may be in a mode of fantasy without even realizing it until feelings are involved and one becomes hurt. In these situations, it is easy to say it's the other person's fault and/or in blaming the other person, as well. When most times the other person already knows his or her place in the connection ahead of time; especially if they are only playing or pretending. I've learned in one giving themself totally in the beginning one is more vulnerable to being played and getting hurt. If one goes into the situation doing this allowing one's emotion to get involved, thus fantasying the situation, one is more likely to get hurt. Then how is the other person to be totally blamed when one gave the other permission into one's life and to use this vulnerability in playing one's emotions? At some point, one has to realize, "Well, I let them into my vulnerable place"; thus, as a mature person see some of the responsibility is one's own fault. Now, I am not talking about long term heinous crimes or crimes of stature at all. Merely saying, if you let someone into your life be prepared they may already have an idea of their intended involvement. And, if you are willing to give them that vulnerable place in your life, to be prepared the other may use that for their own ill purpose and to not blame the other in allowing that person into your life. With me, I don't really care about people knowing my life as it is about to be out in book form any way as a testimony to God as He helped me through some bad choices and hard roads. However, as you will read in my book-to be out soon-I have let others into my life in a vulnerable manner. But now realize, it's doesn't matter. And, even thou my emotions gave way to hurt in that vulnerable state, I know to a certain extent I did that to myself and can only say now, Lord help me through what I did to myself.

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
