a poem. written my me, a very non-poet

Waiting for Him

Sometimes I get lonely as I wait for him to come.
To see my prince in shining armour, glowing like the sun.
It's difficult to wait, but with God's help it can be done.

As I lie here and dream about the things I hope to be,
Something in my head tells me to wait and be happy,
To be content and pray that God's will is plain to see.

As much as I want to be with another human being,
I resolve to be content to be a daughter of the King,
The one and only one who can make my spirit sing!

Isaiah 12:2

''See, El is my deliverance, I trust and am not afraid. For Yah, Yahweh, is my strength and my song, and He has become my deliverance.'' -Isaiah 12:2

This really stuck out to me as I was reading my Scripture the other night. I get way too worried about way too many things. So whenever I find verses in Scripture that assure me that I just need to trust in Yahweh, I write them down.

Yahweh is my strength - how amazing is that to think about! I can do things to make me think that I'm strong, but my strength really comes from God alone. I can't do anything by myself even if I try.

I am not afraid. Am I afraid? Yes. Of what? Mainly I'm afraid of failure. I hate to fail - when I failed the driver's test to get my license, I cried. I hate to fail. I need to learn the lesson that, yes, failing isn't fun, and I still need to try my best at whatever I'm doing - but maybe God has me fail for a reason. That is a hard pill to swallow. Fail for a reason? To learn a lesson - sometimes the hard way. So I need to work on trusting God, even if I fail something. Anyone else?

Yahweh is my song. I should be praising God day and night for being my strength and my deliverance - do I? No. Do you? Something to think about.

P.S. I use Yahweh and Yashua because I believe in using the real names of God (I do use God, but the equivalent is Elohim). I hope this doesn't offend anyone - if so let me know. Thanks!

I have a blog!

So I have a blog now. Why? I'm not exactly sure, to be perfectly honest. Maybe it will be a place to post about my opinions. Maybe it will be a place to post random pictures. Maybe no one will come by, and I will close the blog. We'll see, won't we!

So anyways .... this is my blog. Enjoy it and let me know what you think! Comments are awesome and appreciated, even if you don't agree with what I'm saying.

So thanks for reading this and look for more posts soon!

God bless.
