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


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.

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
