My Bride and the Bridegroom

My fruit (referring to wisdom) is better than fine gold;
What I yield surpasses choice silver.
I walk in the way of the righteousness,
Along the paths of justice,
Bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me
And making their treasuries full.
Proverbs 8:19-21

For I am His and He is mine.

By Bridegroom

Emotions and feelings can carry me away
To places and situations I am not yet ready to face
Fear sets in
Confusion clutters my mind
Must get right with God and leave the world behind

Racing heart and fluttering chest
Wanting to push forward but knowing it is not for the best
Love takes time
Relationships must go slow
In order to survive the foundation must grow

Energy and excitement contained in every touch
Sensory overload can push me too much
Not wanting to rush
Yet I dive in over my head
Leaving chaos and mixed signals left behind to be read

God says to seek wisdom in all that I do
Thus I pray and meditate so He can renew
Fulfillment of my hearts desire
Comes as I listen to the Lord
Letting Him lead my paths and guiding my by His sword

Going back to square one doesn’t mean things are over
It means there is brokenness to work on and discover
Time spent with God
Maturing and growing in the daily journey
Brings healing and refining which breaks chains and sets free

Feelings may get hurt and people may not understand
But I must follow the voice of wisdom, stay true, and stand
Maturity and blessings abound
As God leads relationships in His everlasting way
I look forward to all He will bring each and every day

Be it here on earth one day to a devoted Godly man
Or at the pearly gates of heaven where Jesus takes my hand
Either way I will have joy
For I will know with confidence that God led my way
When I finally say I do on that glorious wedding day

Opposite views

You know I woke up this morning to a glorious epiphany and was jumping on the blog to write, when what do I find but 8 negative comments about my writings and my heart. I know that not everyone sees things the way I do, nor does everyone believe in the glorious Lord that I serve, so I pondered posting his comments, but have decided the negativity is not welcomed here.

However, I want to acknowledge Steve Johnston and thank him for his feedback and remind him that I indeed know that all things done in the dark will indeed come to light and though you may think me hypocritical, a kiss butt, or a liar, that is but one opinion. You are entitled to your own opinion of me and my writings and believe it or not, I take no offense for it is what it is…an opinion.

I was not put on this earth to please people, but to please my Lord and Savior who bled and died for me that I might have everlasting life if I believe in Him and His promises to me. I am not perfect, I sin, I fall, and I have hurt people both intentionally and unintentionally….for I am human. I have never claimed otherwise on this sight and have many times written about my failures and even publicly apologized to a beautiful person that I hurt (though not on purpose).

I am more than willing to take and post constructive criticism and use it to grow in my walk and learn about my weaknesses that I don’t always see clearly, but I let the comments made out of ones own negativity roll off my back. So, I thank you for your opinion, but I rest assured in the comfort that I am a daughter of the righteous King and will do His work until the day He calls me home despite what anyone else may think or feel about me.

May the Lord bless you Steve Johnston and may his light indeed shine into your heart of negativity, opening it up to the endless possibilities God has for you.

In God’s love!
