Brand New Heart

Summer is almost over, and autumn is in the air; but I’m not quite ready for it to end. So, here is “Brand New Heart,” a brand new poem with a summery theme, plus flower photos from this summer that I haven’t posted before, so they will be brand new to you. πŸ™‚

Brand New Heart

In the warmth of summer
I met an amazing boy
Who filled me with wonder
And brought my heart joy

But it was a flawed love
Two humans filled with zeal
It wasn’t based on above
But instead on how passionate we’d feel.

Sadly, that flame died
But later I met someone
Who was brutally crucified
And called Himself God’s Son.

I believed – in the waters I dipped
And found out what genuine
Love was, and how a relationship
Is supposed to honor Him.

Washed in the blood,
My heart became pristine;
What a loving God,
To wash my very core clean!

Now it’s a new start
I am ready to love again
With my brand new heart
Set on Jesus Who paid for my sin!

 

**This isn’t about me, by the way. This is my imagination taking flight. I’ve never had a boyfriend, haha. But it was still fun to write. πŸ™‚

***The last photo was actually a mistake – I wanted a photo of the sun behind the clouds at sunset, but the sun came out right after I clicked the button. I thought for sure that I ruined my old camera by doing that, but it somehow survived. **whew**Β πŸ˜…

  1. Hope deferred makes a heart sick, It sure looks as if your hope is filled with our Lord. It seems you would like a relationship but it will be below your choice to serve our Lord. This is a key lesson for a successful dating/marriage relationship. It is unfortunate that sometimes it takes so long to find a like heart. I personally think is best if the light heart is a little bit different in a lot of ways but the same in the basic believe in God Almighty! The differences will help you grow in accepting others, the belief in God will sustain you through the tough times.

    Think about how God works with you. In the best relationships, even though we are different, it is how the relationships work best if we pattern after God’s ways he works with us. God is not shy, God is not overbearing, but he knows where we need to go and where he is going. We have a compass to that helps us decide where we need to go, we also have one that was the sidetrack us, we need to learn who to listen to.

    As you are doing right now Grace, keep your bitterness and disappointment in check with the joy of the Lord. I do admit the old world is tough and wants us to be bitter. I do not know of the valleys of the shadow of death that you have had to walk through so far in your life, but I do know that your have a heart of encouragement from your writings. Keep walking toward our Lord, and growing in faith and his loving hand as It guides you.

    Thank you for sharing your walk with the Lord with us.

    And encouraged believer,
    Denny

    • Yes, definitely so! πŸ™‚ But at this point, I really don’t expect to find a guy. I’m so shy and get anxious in social situations… most times, it just doesn’t seem like it would be possible. Of course, I don’t know what God’s plan is. Maybe He does have someone in store later on.

      A like heart but different really does sound wonderful. πŸ™‚ Perhaps someday, but as for now, I’m content. πŸ™‚

      Haha, yes, and the world doesn’t like to make it easy for people who are single and in their mid-twenties. I read a book a while back (ironically, the main character was Grace, in A Season For Grace) in which the main character starts off saying that since she is 23 and still single… and I’m thinking, “So what, I’m older than that and still single.” πŸ˜‚ (Though it was a historical fiction novel so maybe it was viewed differently back then.) It feels weird to be this old and not have even dated, however, haha.

      Aww, thank you. 😊 ❀

      Thanks for the encouraging comment! πŸ™‚
