Waiting


 Desperate to end Waiting


In considering the act of mating
Slow is a blessing to God's best
Don't be so desperate to end waiting

Settling for thought can be negating
When attention given that expressed
In considering the act of mating

Attention in thought one then debating
Where contentment of heart God attest
Don't be so desperate to end waiting

Waiting can become a blessing
As one realizes it's to God be content
Because to one's heart He's addressing

Where to your waiting He sends one meant
Not in settling for second-best
In contentment your time is then spent

Knowing your heart He has assessed
In considering the act of mating
God fills you content better than the rest
Best not be desperate to end waiting

Thoughts: Sometimes we can get anxious in ending our singleness in the waiting for a mate. And, sometimes this anxiety can lead to settling for second-best or worse as one is given attention by another. Also, some try to make this happen, when trying to acquire God's best, it's all in His timing; no need to do anything in trying. Waiting can be a blessings. "But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth" (Psalm 37: 9b. NKJV). It is always a blessing to wait on the Lord's timing in any situation; but in particular if you want His best in a mate. "Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him..." (Psalm 37: 7a. NKJV). I learned this, in what seemed like a life long lesson, as I took to the first that came along (well, they picked me). Settling for the first to give attention in my life lead to some disappointment and great discontentment in becoming a single mother; unfortunate lesson learned. Much wiser now, years, even decades later, I know now to wait. And, in waiting am very content in giving my heart to the Lord to protect and to give away to the right one; when and if that time comes, in His timing. Although, much older and up in age, I do not worry and refuse to live my life in discontentment in not having a mate, as the Lord my God is my best, for now and forever; if that's what He plans for me. I live in waiting for my future in His blessings in contentment and know the future He has for me is and will be a triumphant win. My joy/contentment is with the Lord. "You will show me the path of life; In your presence is fullness of joy; At your right hand are pleasures forevermore" (Psalm 16:11. NKJV).  And, in waiting He is my strength: "...for the joy of the Lord is your strength(Nehemiah 8:10. NKJV). Contentment in God gives joy and joy produces strength; strength in waiting. If you are a female in waiting, are you waiting on a Bozo (not worth giving of yourself ) or a Boaz (Read Book of Ruth Chapter 2 for Boaz qualities)? This also applies to males in waiting on a Ruth or a Proverbs 31 woman (Read Ruth & Proverbs 31 for these qualities in a woman)! A piece of advice: It's not good to settle for someone you think you might can change later once married; it doesn't always work like that; that's a mistake many make in dating. If these qualities aren't there before, or at least something he or she is seriously working towards (everyone is not always on the same level of spiritual maturity), then they want be there later. And, sometimes you are not where your spiritual maturity needs to be; you may need some spiritual growing to be ready for a mate. And that's okay. It's best to let God work His plan for you, and in you, in patience and in His joy. A note: In marring, one brings into the marriage what one practiced before the marriage. For instance; if one practiced abstaining from sex outside of marriage in respect to this as Christian morals, then one will be able or is more likely to be faithful in this in marriage because he or she has already learned how to control this human urge before marriage. Waiting can be a preparation period/season for God's best. It's always best to wait on God in His timing of giving His best; even if His best for you is to remain single. Meanwhile, try to learn to be content in living in the fullness of His blessings He has for you now and not be so desperate to end waiting.   

Where is Your Source of Contentment and Joy? 
The One True Source--Jesus Christ!

"These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full" (John 15:11. NKJV). 

Waiting is a prerequisite for God's best!

Loneliness

 


Loneliness Equals Insecurity


Being happy with one's security
Means being content with one's self
Loneliness equals insecurity

Knowing this takes maturity
One's spirit knows your not by yourself
In happy with one's security

The enemy gives one obscurity
In making one not like oneself
Loneliness equals insecurity

Better when one realizing your not alone
The Holy Spirit your companion be
Giving guidance yourself to love then shown

For with God within yourself does see
His security is all that you need
In setting your loneliness free

Once this security one's soul agree
Loneliness equals insecurity
Past loneliness security exceed
Being happy with one's security
    ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Loneliness for most usually means missing having another in one's life. And this can greatly upset one's security within one's self, if one lets it. It can equal a void in one's life, as well. A void that another human cannot fill. Looking to another to fill that emptiness that's when loneliness can generate (if you let it) and can only cause more conflict within one's self.  That's where insecurity of loneliness comes in. There is nothing wrong with loving one's self in being secure in being a Christian, a daughter or son of the Most High. In loving one's self in identity as a Child of God. That's not boosting, that's simply, knowing! Our heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit is the only comforter of our deep down loneliness that lies within in our soul. If one is not secure in knowing one is never alone with God within them then they will never obtain self security. And, if one cannot obtain being happy with one self then one is not secure within one self, One should not seek, nor depend on another-outside of God-in bringing about self security; as, loneliness equals insecurity.  

Some Scriptures to consider in strengthening your security (All are New King James Version):

"You shall love your neighbor as yourself "(Matthew 22:39)-Don't put yourself down.

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind" (2 Timothy 1:7)-Behave with God-confidence

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins....." (1 John 1:9)-It only means you are still alive if you fail, you have a pulse. And "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus...." (Romans 8:1).

"For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise" (2 Corinthians 10: 12)-You are unique, do not compare yourself to others. God made you wonderfully as you are; incomparable. 

"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!" (1 John 3:1)-He gives us grace as His children. 

"He who walks with wise men will be wise" (Proverbs 13:20)-Surround yourself with positive people.  

"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" (1 Thessalonians 5:18)-Be happy with everything.

"For I say, through the grace given me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly....) (Romans 12:3)-Have realistic expectation. 

"For whom the Lord loves, He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom He delights" (Proverbs 3:12)-Growth is a necessary process. 

"For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ" (Galatians 1:10)-Do what is right and pleasing to Jesus.

"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things that are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things" (Philippians 4"8)-Simply, Be positive!

Happy Saturday

 


Happy Saturday


Having God as head of your life
Applying His Word gives you strength
Placing your hope in the afterlife
Pointing out His Grace at length
Your internal being then comes to life

Saturday your day to you of rest
After a workweek this day you need 
Today you spend your day of no request 
Uniting in body, mind, & spirit you proceed 
Relaxing in this day of joy expressed 
Duties do call, but in your time indeed 
Allowing you to know that you are blessed 
Your happy is with God, to this confessed

Applying His Word gives you strength
Placing your hope in the afterlife
Pointing out His Grace at length

Today a day of uncertain joy  
Having past the first part of the week

Referring to God able to continue when weak 
Soon your spirit lifted before the enemy does destroy   
Doing what's best His comfort is seek  
Able then in meekness your day to enjoy 
You continue in His presence this day unique
