A Poem of Thought

 

Afraid of True Love

It's something I can barely conceive of
As to this thing I'm not that familiar
Lord help me not to be afraid of true love

In knowing Your love, how true thereof
But as for man's love, true unfamiliar
It's something I can barely conceive of

Definitive love as Yours from above
I have not known in a mate; thus far
Lord help me not to be afraid of true love

For I know under Your gracious care
To this unknown thing in human form
You will guide my heart in love, if I dare

Surely as to my heart You have reform
You will give to me Your protection
In allowing me to this thing conform

Help me to learn in giving affection
As it's something I can barely conceive of
Having not received it, I need Your direction
Lord help me not to be afraid of true love

Thoughts: Sometimes something one has never experienced can be frightening. That being the case, one can sometimes avoid the experience at all cost. However, many times having not experienced something can also be a fateful thing that one may have to work one's way through. For instance: One having never experienced true love of a mate, for what ever reason. Seems, now a days, some people put so much emphases on the act or idea of love that some have forgotten what true love is all about. Just being married or having a mate, does not make for true love! How many divorces do we see now a days? How short lived are couples now a days? True love does not come with a warranty, nor a binding contract. Although, I may not have the true love of a mate, nor never have, I do know what true love is and how it feels. You may ask: How is that if you have never experienced true love of a mate? Well, for one, I gave up most my adult life in denying love for myself for the love of my children; sacrificial love. And, for another, I have experienced in the most amazing way, the undeniable love of God; which is greater than any love one can imagine. So, yes I do know what love is, how it looks, and how it feels. But, the love experience I am lacking is the true love of a man. I am human, so of course I do get lonely for that human contact of care one gets from true love; but it also frightens me having never experienced it. And too, having never experienced it, nor having never had that kind of caring contact from another human, makes it hard to know how to give it to another. Have learned, however, I must love myself first before I can give true love to a mate. It just frightens me to do so even thou the Lord has worked greatly in my heart in learning to love others, I still need His help in not being afraid of True Love.

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth
