~ A POEM ABOUT LOVE ~
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone
to have a deep soul relationship with another
To be loved thoroughly, and exclusively.
But to a Christian, God says,
"No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content
Unreservedly to Me alone--I do love you, My child,
And until you discover that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found--
You will not be capable of the perfect human relationship
That I have planned for you."
"You will never be united with another until you are united with Me--
Exclusive of any other desires or longings,
I want you to stop planning, Stop wishing
And allow Me to bring it to you.
"You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things--
Keep experiencing the satisfaction of knowing that I am.
Keep learning and listening to the things I tell you.
You must wait.
Don't be anxious.
Don't look around at the things others have gotten
Or that I have given them.
Don't look at the things you think you want.
You just keep looking off and away up to Me
Or you'll miss what I want to show you.
"And when you are ready,
I'll surprise you with a love far more wonderful
Than any you would ever dream of.
You see, until you are ready and the one I have for you is ready,
(I am working even at this moment
to have you both ready at the same time.)
Until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me,
And the life I have planned for you, you won't be able to Experience the love that
Exemplifies your relationship with Me, and is thus perfect Love.
"And dear child, I want you to have the most wonderful love,
I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me,
And enjoy maturely and concretely
The everlasting union of beauty and perfection that I offer you with Myself.
"Know that I love you.
I am Almighty God.
Believe and be satisfied."
I LOVE YOU ! ! !

~ GOD KNOWS BEST ~
Our Father knows what's best for us,
So why should we complain--
We always want the sunshine,
But He knows there must be rain--
We love the sound of laughter
And the merriment of cheer,
But our hearts would lose their tenderness
If we never shed a tear...
Our Father tests us often
With suffering and with sorrow,
He tests us, not to punish us,
But to help us meet tomorrow...
For growing trees are strengthened
When they withstand the storm,
And the sharp cut of a chisel
Gives the marble grace and form...
God never hurts us needlessly,
And He never wastes our pain
For every loss He sends to us
Is followed by rich gain...
And when we count the blessings
That God has so freely sent,
We will find no cause for murmuring
And no time to lament...
For our Father loves His children,
And to Him all things are plain,
So He never sends us pleasure
When the soul's deep need is pain...
So whenever we are troubled,
And when everything goes wrong,
It is just God working in us
To make our spirit strong...
Watch your thoughts, for they become words...
Watch your words, for they become actions...
Watch your actions, for they become habits...
Watch your habits, for they become character...
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny...
