From my new book: Emotionally Charged: A Poetic Journey in the Issues of Life
The Issue: There is nothing as sweet as someone telling you what you want to hear, or as sobering as realizing you were willing to swallow the lie.
You’ve asked a question; this answer I give:
My life is not my own; this is how I live.
Blessed with an inner beauty, a heart so full of love.
With you I’d share a part, leaving plenty for Him above.
My beauty comes not from the fullness of my lips,
Nor does my sensuality rest in the swaying of my hips.
My heart is not my own, for I seek to do His will.
My mind is for someone, who can share what I feel.
To be a virtuous woman, you see, that is a goal of mine.
A blessing it would be to find my soul mate in this life time.
Will you reach me, inwardly touch me, giving hearts a try.
But it must be in His will, else it’ll end in us living the lie.

While sad, but true…many believers are deceived because we are willing to compromise on the standards of Christian living. The enemy loves to wrap his traps in attractive packages. What if we chose, instead, to follow the advice given in Ephesians 5 which starts out saying…“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;”
Now the Question Becomes: Will you turn and take heed to the warnings?
