A Noble Man

We have heard of the Proverbs 31 woman in the bible. We rarely hear about fathers. The Lord inspired this poem for fathers, good men in your life… Dad’s are awesome and I honor my dad with this and all the fathers I know.

 

A Noble Man

 

A man of noble Character who can find? For he is worth more than gold.

He moves his eyes from temptation. For he has no need to spoil for he has full confidence in his wife.

His arms are strong for his tasks.

He works hard to provide for his family.

The bread of idleness he does not eat.

He gives wise counsel and faithful instruction is on his tongue.

He is respected in his workplace among friends and the church.

He follows the path that the LORD sets before him, and does not stray. For he listens closely to what the LORD says.

He reaches out to the poor, the lost, and he helps feed them.

He teaches daily about Christ where ever he goes.

He shepherds his family and friends.

He loves like Christ. He never looks down on others.

His children raise up calls him a faithful blessing, and his wife also praises him.

Many men can do noble things but you surpass them all.

Men can be handsome and well-built but it is fleeting but a man who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Give him the reward he has earned and let your work bring praise and respect.

Love is….

Love is a journey full of twists and turns.

At times it is easy and sometimes hard.

It can be full of laughter, It can be full of tears.

It can be times of heartache

It can be times of joyous hearts

Sometimes it will seem perfect

Sometimes it will seem imperfect.

Love is both emotion and action.

Sometimes we feel it, and sometimes we have to force ourselves to show it.

Love is unique to a person.

When you say I love you, you make a commitment a vow to endure.

Sometimes it is easy, but times it is hard.

Love can be described as this:

Is patient (times we don’t feel it, but we have to show it)

Is kind (hard to feel kindness when you are angry at the person, you show it)

Love is not:

Envious or boastful (seeing what other couples have and you want it too, or being purposefully showing, excessive pride or think the person will always be there)

Not making demands or it’s your own way (by making a person fit your own standards, changing, or say this is how you will love me.)

Does not rejoice at wrong doings (celebrating when a person does wrong.)

Rejoices with trust (praise when a person is right)

Love bears all things (expect for abut, but support the person even in wrong doings, endure)

Love:

Believes in all things (seeing the person in the best light)

Hopes all things (even when it doesn’t look good)

Endures all things (working things out, especially hardships and heartache)

Love never ends (just because you are not with the person doesn’t mean you just stop love them, but you may love from a distance).

Love is a beautiful thing/gift that has come from God.

We are not perfect and will fail at love at times, but when you do fall, stop, think, say sorry and show in action that you love the person.

Pursue love, it is hard but is worth it!

Damaged & Redeem

A hurtful word-FAT

No one to play with-GO AWAY

A punch in the guy-PRETTY BUT FAT (AKA UGLY)

A call to spend time-YES, BUT YOU NEVER INIATE

A broken time together-s

Tears on the inside a smile on the outside

Burnt dirt so nothing can grow

A hope a small seed, crushed as four crushes passes me by

Nothing to grow by black disappointment

A small glimmer of hope to run with

Inside full of doubt, fear, unworthiness

A small dark tree am I surrounded by darkness

Gloomy is my outlook

Not significant is my fertilizer

Performance my water

His hands reached down to my dirt

Cultivating the land, taking His time to get the dirt healthy once more

Plucking the tree up, making sure to get all the bad roots.

You turn the dirt over and over until ready

A new tree He planted-BEAUTIFUL

Wait!-Is-That-Me?

He calls the darkness away He bring in the Light

Words of ENCOURAGEMENT

Words of LOVE

Words of LIGHT LIFE

He speaks into me, I grow stronger under His tender care

Another tree He plants besides me, with roots connecting

What-

Why-

Huh?-

We start merging as one

Meanwhile the Hands clips my branches (ouch!) Takes some leaves off (ouch~~)

I grow strong and beautiful under His care

He beams with pure delight said It’s time

He begins again to merged us together

He said I’m a good Gardner, and watched over us!

Psalm 121-A Response

Psalms 121: 1-8

V1. I lift my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from?

(M). I lift my eyes to where I see the cross, I see Jesus drench in blood. I know He is there to help me

V2. My help comes from the LORD the Maker of heaven and earth.

(M).  For I know that by His wounds I am healed. For I know that He is my savior. He came to save me.

V3. He will not let your foot slip, He who watches you will not slumber.

(M). He sees me. He sees my joys, hurt, pain, happiness, sadness, excitement. He watches over me.

V4. Indeed He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

(M). In my bed He watches me. As I slumber He whispers to me, let me know that everything is okay.

V5. The LORD watches over you. The LORD is your shade at your right hand.

(M). He comforts me. His presence is always with me my LORD

V6. The sun will not harm you by day nor the moon by night.

(M). He protects me. He shields me. He loves me. When I feel beat down or run through, you shade me.

V7. The LORD will keep you from all harm He watches your life.

(M). I need to listen when He says don’t go. I need to pay attention when He stops something because it is for my good.

V8. The LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

(M). The LORD created me. He saw me being birth to life. He will see me when I take my last breath and join Him forever. Amen

Going Towards my One

I walk towards the one.
The one that I’ve long for.
Each step I take is a step of…
Joy-
Peace-
Pure Happiness-
Contentment-
When I think of what you went through for me, I cry.
Why would you do that for me?
For Love I know-
As I finally arrive to you
You take my hand into your nail pierce hands-
You smile-
I smile- As I-
Kneel before my King, my One

Do you See Me-A Poem

Do you see me?

Do you really see me?

I mean I know you see me, but do you really see?

What do you see?

A girl who is ashamed-

A girl who really wants and tries to stay hidden-

A girl who is shy-

What do you see?

A girl who‘s father rejected her-

A girl who loves her family, but hates the family drama-

A girl who tries to be perfect but fails-

What do you see?

A girl with color on her skin-

A girl who’s hair is kinky but straight sometimes-

A girl who may need to lose a few pounds-

What do you see? I mean what do you really see?

Are you just seeing the outside without knowing the whole picture?

Are you just hearing the way I talk but not seeing me?

Are you just making judgments without knowing the full picture?

Can I share with you who I am?

I am the Daughter of the most high King-

I am a Friend of the man who gave His life for me-

I am a funny and friendly

I am beautiful despite of what some people may think

I am a Sister with many siblings of Brothers and Sisters to count

I may stand out because I am afraid that you might forget me

I love to laugh, so I may tell loud jokes and you know what I laugh loud not so you can notice me, but that’s who I am, and my giggle is cute by the way

I am not a girl that takes crap from guys (been there down that) so don’t think when you see me I am desperate woman, for I am not, again do I need to remind you that I am a princess, my Heavenly Father is God and I am His Daughter

Which brings me to another big point– How does God see me?

He sees me radiant and beautiful to the point I am glowing

He sees me sensitive so he speaks to me in a gentle way

He sees my smile and it makes His day

He sees my body shape and thinks it’s good

He sees my color and marvels at the beauty of it

He sees my shame and removes it from me

He sees my hurt, and stitches me up

He sees my pain in my heart, and heals the pain

He sees my doubts and fears, and replaces with peace and hope

He sees my insecurities and replaces it with confidence

He sees my true heart, and grows my heart

He sees my talents and helps me develop them more.

He sees everything of me and more, He knows me intimately

See, you-see-what-you-want-to-see and you may not know everything,

Take the time and see me.

If you want to know me more then ask me—How do you see yourself?

If you really want to see me; then ask my Heavenly Father He will show you, and then come back to me

If you want to know the person who really sees me and sees you– then come and talk to me and I will introduce you to Him.
