God's Truest Intent

God's Truest Intent

 

God's truest intent

is to straighten a soul badly bent

I didn't get where I am overnight

to straighten me up was a remarkable sight

badly bent and spiritually bruised

I never asked to be abused

as God's tears fell upon my soul

I was healed - He made me whole

with each teardrop He shed

He healed my heart and my head

to praise God for this love Heaven sent

will be each day my truest intent

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.
