Delighting in the Lord

I mentioned the other day how much I love poetry-especially inspirational poetry. Here's one I wrote on the 25th April, 1991. (If you've never read through my archives before, I posted another original one to honour my father under the heading "For My Dad".)

I love you Lord Jesus, You're precious to me
The desires of my soul, all my longings you see
In you, Oh Lord, I have placed my trust
Take my life's dreams they are nothing but dust

To you, Oh Lord, I have given my life
You guard my steps & keep me from strife
Thank you Lord for the talents with which I've been blessed
I will use them- not hide them, for I know you know best

You always astound me with your love & your grace
In turn I must try to seek your face
Growing strong daily in knowledge of you
I stand in awe... as my dreams come true

What am I Lord that you should grant my desire?
A mighty warrior- with heart a fire?
Or just a child, who delights in you
You... who are Holy, and Faithful and True.

Psalm 37:4 "Delight thyself also in the Lord;and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart."
When you feel you are in God's Waiting Room & your dreams seem to be put on hold, lay them at His feet and let Him become your all in all.

Hi claire,

Thank you so much for sharing that poem. It's just beautiful, you can tell it came from your heart, which means even more.

I don't think you realize just how encouraging all your posts are to me! Thanks, again.
