A Poem - "Understanding of You"

  Understanding  of You Because my affections are of few  I entrust my heart Yours to guide Lord, I need understanding like You Hope in reciprocating that a new  I keep You close to where care does reside Because my affections are of few Advise me in receiving a breakthrough In knowing to how Your love does provide Lord, I need understanding like You For to few the understanding of me And the acceptance even smaller still As I draw ever closer to Thee Thou my battle of knowledge is uphill In seeking discernment in my life I know in knowing You this fulfill To this understanding I come to life Because my affections are of few I cling to the hope of the afterlife Lord, thanks for understanding of You                       ©Doris Elaine

Face-to-Face to Healing

 Over the past several years I have been trying to understand myself in an effort to better serve our Lord. While I was raising my children, my focus was not on myself, rather on the duties as a single mother towards my children.

One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion;
