And then I spent a couple of minutes in the company of this amazing Lady…listen/read on

So it seemed, that it was cool, for everyone to be in a relationship but me..

So I took matters into my own hands… and ended up with him

Him who displayed the characteristics of a CHEATER, a LIAR, an ABUSER, & a THIEF

So.. why was I surprised when he broke into my heart?

I called 911, but I was cardiac arrested for aiding and abetting,

Cause it was ME who let him in…

Claiming we were “just friends”..

It was already decided for me by the first date, that even if he wasn’t!

I was gonna make him ‘The One’..

You know… I was tired of being alone,

And I simply made up in my mind, that it was about that time so I decided to drag him along for the ride,

Cause I was always the bridesmaid & never the bride..

A virgin in the physical, but mentally just a grown woman on the corner in heat!

Who was tired of the wait!

So I was gonna make him ‘The One’.

He had a… form of Godliness… but not much..

But hey, hey I can change him! So (honey) I’ll TAKE him, I mean he’s close… enough

Ready to sell my aorta for a quarter, not knowing the value of its use to me

Arteries so clogged with MY will, it blocked HIS Will from flowing through me

So, I thank Christ that His blood pressure gave this heart an attack,

That flat lined my obscured vision, put me flat on my back

Through my ignorance He sawed,

Through my sternum He sawed & cracked open my chest

To transplant Psalm 51:10

A new heart & a renewed right spirit within!

So now I fully understand,

Better yet I thoroughly comprehend,

How much I NEED to wait… for You.

See, the bad thing is that I knew he wasn’t you from the beginning..

Cause in the beginning was the Word

And he didn’t even sound or shine like Your Son

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks,

And all he could whisper was sweet, empty nothings –

Which meant NOTHING.

He couldn’t even pray when I NEEDED him to

Asking him to fast would be absurd!

So forget about being cleansed & washed with water through the Word…

But I know You.. ♥

You were already praying for me

Even never having met me

Let me assure you, I will wait for you.

I will no longer date, socialize or communicate with carbon copies of you

To appease my boredom or to quench my thirstiness I have for attention

And short-lived compliments from ‘sorta kindas’.

You know…. He ‘sort kinda’ right, but ‘sorta kinda’ wrong?

His first name LUKE,

His last name WARM.

I, I won’t settle for false companionship

I won’t lay in the embrace of his arms,

Attempting to find some closeness,

But never feeling so far apart cause, I just wanna be held

Cause ♫”all I gotta do is Say” No!

NO more ‘almost sessions’ of ‘almost coming close’

Passing winks & buying drinks,

I’ma, I’ma, I’ma flirt!♫

Who flirts with the ideology of,

‘Can you just tell me how much I can get away with & still be saved?’

NO more.

I’ll stay in my bed… alone, and write poems, about how I will wait for you :)

He won’t even come close,

Our fingers won’t even interlock

We won’t even exchange breath

Cause I have thoughts that I’ve ‘saved as’ in a file that God has only equipped you to open.

I will no longer get weighted down,

From so-called friends & family talks,

About the concern for my biological clock

When I serve the Author of Time.

Who is NOT subject to time,

But I’M subject to Him,

He has the ability to STOP, FAST FORWARD, PAUSE, or REWIND at any given time…

So if we could role play,

You would be Abraham & I would be Sara

Or you can be Isaac & I can be Rebecca – a servant’s answered prayer

I am bone of your bone, flesh of your flesh,

Made up of your rib Adam!

And once we meet, like electrons

I will be bound to your nucleus, completely indivisible atom.

We even speak the same math: 1 + 1 + 1 = 3, which really equals 1 if you add Him.

We were all created in His image,

But you have the ability to reflect, project & even detect the Son.

If I were to explain what you looked like,

You would have to look like a star,

A son of the Son..

I would gain energy simply from the light on me.

I would need you , in order to complete my photosynthesis

I await your revelation, but once again from the genesis, I will wait for you ♥

And I will know you… because when you speak I will be reminded of Solomon’s wisdom,

Your ability to lead will remind me of Moses,

Your faith will remind me of Abraham,

Your confidence in God’s Word will remind me of Daniel,

Your inspiration will remind me of Paul,

Your heart for God will remind me of David,

Your attention to detail will remind me of Noah,

Your integrity will remind me of Joseph,

And your ability to abandon your own will, will remind me of the disciples,

But Your ability to love selflessly & unconditionally will remind me of Christ.

But I won’t need to identify you by any special Matthews or any special Marks,

Cause His word will be tatted all over your heart.

And you will know me, and you will find me,

Where… the boldness of Esther meets the warm closeness of Ruth.

Where the hospitality of Lydia is aligned with the submission of Mary,

Which is engulfed in the tears of a praying Hanna.

I will be the one, drenched in Proverbs 31… waiting for you.

But to my Father, my Father who has known me before I was birthed into this earth

Only if you should see fit…

I desire Your will above mine,

So even if you call me to a life of singleness,

My heart is content with YOU – the One who was sent.

YOU are the greatest love story ever told,

The greatest story ever known

You are forever my judge & I’m forever Your witness

And I pray that I’m always found on a mission about my Father’s business

Oh, I will always be Yours!

And I will always wait for You Lord, more than the watchmen wait for the morning…

More than the watchmen wait for the morning… I WILL WAIT

thank you Janette Ikz

  1. The fallacy or flaw here (as i see it) is that she promises nothing. Except for devotion. None of the “godly” attributes are promised. It has always struck me as odd that all a guy gets is the “bragging rights” (she her? she wit me yo) but as far as the behavior and the “queenliness”, well that is a crap shoot (gamble).
    Devotion and exclusive affections of an orge with dental tendencies and a lot of moral corruption aint worth jack no matter how awesome the wrapping is.

  2. Contentment is the key to a happy marriage. When asked what makes us contented in marriage, we inevitably point to things our partner does, or their characteristics, that please us. When asked what makes us discontented, we indicate what they do, or are, that displeases us. We focus on what’s right or wrong about them, making ourselves happy or unhappy. But contentment is an inside job! It’s how we react to others. Our attitude is the real issue. The problem’s not what we see or hear, it’s how we see or hear it: ‘…The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear… with hearing’ (Ecclesiastes 1:8 NAS). The eye and ear – our perceptions – are the culprits. That’s why God says, ‘…be content with such things as ye have…’ (Hebrews 13:5 KJV). We must choose to see things differently, in ways that don’t make us unhappy. The controls are in our hands, not our partner’s! Contentment is a choice. ‘…I have learned… to be content’ (Philippians 4:11 KJV). We learn contentment by considering how much harder others have it, asking God how He wants us to use our challenges and lacks for our growth and our partner’s growth, and – remembering Erma Bombeck’s advice – ‘The grass usually looks greener over someone else’s septic system’. Benjamin Franklin said of marriage, ‘Keep your eyes wide open beforehand, and half shut afterwards’. Finally, we can learn contentment by praying for the courage to change what we can (especially our own attitude), the grace to accept what we cannot (most things are acceptable when we stop resenting them), and the wisdom to know the difference.

  3. Silence


    Dead air

    Still nothing? To good christian old fashioned men, a covenant before God is something you cannot take lightly. Vows of marriage for some might be the only time in their lives that they make a covenant before God (I’m intentionally leaving out salvation which is a one time once in never out deal as well for some). I read proverbs 31 in 1992 when a friend brought to my attention “the perfect wife”. Over the years I’ve grown up some and know today’s woman would laugh at that chapter and I confess even I your typical OT guy (law not grace) found/find Proverbs 31 a bit on the high side.
    Let us see, Starting verse 10, Trust (A brother has to lie senseless in sleep next to the woman safe in the knowledge that she wont brain him with the electric iron in his sleep) in her is required but she need to do him good (breakfast in bed?) not evil (see flat iron above). The trust is not conditional but goes hand in hand with the doing of good for the rest of her life regardless of anything!!
    Am not going to go into the rest of the verses cause quite frankly, I fear being sought out by a killer feminist. I will just say that it is a tad over the top for today’s woman and requires DIVINE INTERVENTION.
    What I am trying to say here is so far most women I have met like to hedge. They like to say “when I meet the right man I will…” and my response is “what happens if your perception changes?” Fine, I did read and acknowledge the comment above and the good advice it gives however, We need to know what we let ourselves in for from the start and not only be willing but also able to DELIVER and sometimes FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES!
    Given what I am trying to say above, I think, when one makes a list of the good qualities they are looking for, they need also to actually itemize the list of good qualities they can bring to the table.
    You should not say, “you will see IF you get there”. You need to make a brother WANT to get there by showing willingness and ability to BE. Infact you need to say in truth, “HEY AM PRETTY AWESOME NOW BUT YOU AINT SEEN NOTHING YET…”.
    I have scandalised a lot of people back in the day by daring to say, “oh me? I want to be perfect like Jesus” without fear or shame because that is the purpose of my life 🙂
    heheheheh “no one is perfect”. Lol. Fine I will give you that but there is no evidence anywhere that “no one CAN BE perfect”.
