Thank You For Preferring You In Me

While typing my poetry from the past to my poetry blog gaillovesgodspoetry,
I can get SO depressed, disgusted, and struggle not to throw some OUT!
Yes they are part of my testimony (especially as a writer),
but that is the ONLY reason I keep some.
When I realize how I thought on love, life, God,
other gods that I didn’t even know were gods,
and who my heroes were…UGH!!!
What was wrong with me!?
I must take this moment to post this THANK YOU and PRAISE TO GOD
for changing my life, my thinking and my writing!!
And to think… THAT?!?!? was the writing that has been most published!
The world preferred THAT?
THANK YOU, LORD, FOR PREFERRING YOU IN ME AND MY WRITING!! ❤

PS… God, the post above was written from a FB Memory of years ago before I had this blog. In editing it so that I could continue to praise You for loving You in Me, You remind me of the WP Community that You have blessed me with. In joy or sorrow, health or illness, or whatever I talk to You about on this blog, You constantly amaze me with the abundant comments that see You in me, and my love for You! Thank You for a sweet fellowship of support that is filled with souls who also prefer You in me!
Praise Your Holy and Loving name! ❤

Thank you to each one of You who have sent loving, kind, supportive messages that reflected on the love God showers me with, and the love I cannot help but have for Him! And thanks for having blogs and posts that are filled with the same love for me to be able to read! It makes me so happy for HIM! He deserves all His love and praise! ❤ 
Me and God love you! ❤

Your Arms of Love

gaillovesgodspoetry

How long this ocean line stretches.
It reaches to follow me.
From Your heart You reach out
To make sure I know You’re there.
Your waves playfully wave.
They roll forward to push me gently,
And then crash against me
To make their presence clearly known.
It’s You… sending messages of love…
To me… again and again.
I lay on the shore
With my heart smiling for joy.
No matter how far I go,
Or wherever I am,
You’re always in arms length…
Your arms holding me.
I love the way You love me!

Unveiling Love

gaillovesgodspoetry

Lovely lacey cloth, how pretty you are
Dangling from her back.
How delightfully happy she was
When her Father lifted you
Off of her smiling face.
Such happiness to be unveiled
Brought forth the bride for her Groom.
Love was shown for all to see
As they joined hand in hand.
A look of love and peaceful joy.
Among a crowd of family and friends
They testified of God above.
Each time you dance around
I see the joy she’s found.
Each step He holds her to dance,
You glisten with radiant delight.
Thank you for revealing to me
The love that waits with Him.
I have been blessed to witness.

Trust Him With Everything

It has been just like God to bless me with the poetry He gives me to minister to me… not just from being the first to read it… but to remind me in times when I need it most! Thank You, Jesus! I love You!

gaillovesgodspoetry

If you’re gonna trust in the Lord, go all the way…
Trust Him with everything.
If you say you trust Him to look after you,
But keep doubting things you hope for,
Or things you know He expects of you and for you,
How can you say you trust Him?
That would really be more like saying,
“I trust You, Lord, but I’ll take care of the most important things.”
If you do not completely surrender your trust to Him,
Maybe you’re not trusting Him at all.
If you trust God to hear your prayers,
Meet your needs, and fulfill your life,
Then trust Him with what it takes to get it all done.
Give Him your soul, heart, mind, and body.
Give Him everything He has loaned to you.
If you know He’s all knowing and wise to protect,
Why would you doubt Him?
I know fear and uncertainty…

You See Through It All

gaillovesgodspoetry

Here alone with just You and me.
That’s the way I like it to be.
You alone within my heart and soul
Can make me feel completely whole.
When peace escapes my fretting mind,
It’s You I need to seek and find.
When burdens weigh my soul to the ground,
You bid me, “Come. Lay them down.”
You place Your arms beneath to carry,
Then linger still just to tarry.
When darkness lies to my searching eyes,
You help me to see through the disguise.
You light my world and set me free.
You smile and say, “My child, it’s Me!” 🙂

Thanks for coming for me! ❤

Dark Faith

gaillovesgodspoetry

What a wall of darkness
You present as my path.
I pause to pray,
“Is this guidance or wrath?”
Urged in Your peace,
I slowly go through.
I’m afraid of this scene,
but I want to follow You.
You tell me to trust Your hands
holding back the sea.
You provide a fire light at night,
and a cloud by day to shade me.
This won’t be a quick run.
This won’t be a mad dash.
This will be a journey of faith
just before our enemies clash.
Coming out of the waves,
I join You on Your shore.
I watch as my enemy
will be no more.
Closing the wall of darkness,
You throw my enemy in the depth.
While I am in Your arms,
he has met his death.

Silently Inside

“But I will sing of thy power;
yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning:
for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.”
Psalm 59:16 KJV

gaillovesgodspoetry

Pain has come and pain has gone.
It’s up and down as life goes on.
Unwelcomed tears, still they came.
You must obey the rules of the game.
No room for fear. Nowhere to hide.
You can only cry aloud silently inside.

The voice will fade. The pain will too.
You must learn to breathe it through.
Trust the one instructing you.
Only they know what to do.
Leave those closing eyes open wide.
You can cry aloud silently inside.

Caught within a world of fury.
Self made judge and jury.
So much noise within the silence.
Penned beneath the raging violence.
Muffled within the voice that tried.
I heard you cry aloud silently inside.

Wasted life upon the floor.
Her Savior shouts, “They’ll be no more!
The life I made. The life I love
Will take no more push and shove!
My child, you need no longer hide.
I…
