An Undivided Heart

Lord, as I picked up the Bible
and didn't know where to turn

You brought me to a special place
taught me a lesson I needed to learn

it comes from the book of Psalms
here was the place I needed to start

the more I read, the more I learned
Lord, only you can give me an undivided heart

all emotions, thoughts and attitudes
flow from it's center

good, bad or indifferent thoughts
let only goodness enter

I return to you from whence I came
Lord, ready and willing to praise Your name


Psalm 86:11-12
Teach me Your way, O Lord, and I will walk in Your Truth; give me an undivided heart that I may fear Your name. I will praise you, Oh Lord my God, with all my heart...

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
