I Will Be Loved

soft_love_1I was inspired by God to write this poem right after “Tug of War”. Amazingly, this is the only time that I have been moved to right one poem right after the other. I believe it is God’s way of reaffirming His promise to me in light of my recent pain, reflected in “Tug of War”.  God wrote a poem through me in 2009 promising me a godly woman, a wife that would truly be my mate and ours a relationship that would rival all others. Though the poem has been lost, my hope and faith in having this promise realized is not. I was reminded in this poem, “Godly Woman” and since that the only criteria in seeing His promise realized is too stay ensued in Him. I do hope that my faith in God and His promise, despite seeming obstacles and pain, will encourage you in your own quest for a godly mate and to be, always, in Christ a godly mate!  God bless.

I Will Be Loved

I will be loved for God had promised it to me

My heart will be another’s and hers mine eternally

It seems often to be impossible, at least for me

But my Lord’s sweet promise, I am sure to see

The key, not in the looking, frantically nor otherwise

Patiently, patiently waiting, enduring pain, love in disguise

For I am being fashioned in God’s tender hand

In the fire of His love, eternal, in an unholy land

I resolve to stand close at His side never to part

As I trust that He works intently to purify my heart

In the woman designed for me, also, He patiently works

Cleansing every blemish, leaving every beautiful quirk

Well worth the wait, though, impatient, I’ve balked at the door

Reaffirmed, I’ll sit and be quiet, waiting still as before

Learning all of my first love’s lessons, be ready to hold her hand

Not to pull her nor to push her but to faithfully by her side stand

To gaze in her eyes is to know peace, love’s pools reflected in me

I’ll hold her with passion that’s firm, always emitting security

I’ll be an example of power that only can come from God

Yet, humbly, shower with praise afresh and spare the lightening rod

Not being surprised when disagreement comes nor afraid

On Christ, our unshakable foundation a lasting love will be laid

From the start, we’ll kneel together, our hands committedly entwined

Every storm we’ll weather, drunk on the sweetest grape and purest wine

But for now it’s not good to wander so in Christ I patiently wait

Knowing God is faithful that promised Who will present in His time my mate

Though often it seems impossible, at least for me

I know that my Lord’s sweet promise I am sure to see

My heart will be another’s and hers mine eternally

I will be loved for God has promised it to me.
