A Poem for Thought - Used to You


Used to You!

Life can sometimes make me blue
Especially when it seems no one cares
I can say, I've gotten used to you!

For in my thoughts your being grew
As a friend indeed, my heart declares
When life sometimes makes me blue

The need was there to this the Lord knew
And you to others, to this none compares
For I can say, I've gotten used to you!

When others failed, you by my side stood firm
Through the ups and downs you never left me
For this, a true and good friend I affirm

Thou from the start It was hard to see
As I denied this couldn't be true
When to this, I just wanted to flee

However to this my heart sang and flew
As life can sometimes make me blue
When you stepped in and made us two
Now I can say, I've gotten used to you

Thoughts: I know and agree with the Lord as my friend, Our friendship is supposed to be enough. But as human, sometimes we really do need a human friend by our side. True and good friends are hard to come by these days in this me, me, me society. I've learned from the lack, there of, that a true and good friend is not selfish, does not turn his/her back on you, and never gives up on being friends. That he or she will be there for you through thick and thin. Also, sometimes we want to be picky about who we friend and can, sometimes, deny someone simply because we either can't see his or her friendship, or that he or she is so different than ourselves (in action and beliefs) that we want nothing to do with this person. Thus, in the process of denial, loose out on a potentially great friendship. Friends don't happen over night. They grow on us. True and good friends grow together; not apart. And, in today's technological world, distance should not be an affecting issue; as well. I will learn, and hope others do too, to say to a true and good friend, I've gotten used to you!

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."

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
