    "Love Me Thoroughly"



    Lord,
    Now that you've shown me a true man of God I...can't focus on anything else. Yes, I know that in order to love someone else you must first have a love of "self" and Forgive "self" for mistakes of the past. Just as you have done for me...
    So now I'm...

    Makin' moves towards a
    swifter groove
    Love of YOU FIRST I...
    don't want to lose

    but Lord, I'm tired and lonely

    dealin' w/this
    dealin' w/that...can't
    find a man to...
    love me thoroughly?
    This is wack!!

    Soon be knockin' on
    30's door...
    eyes bloodshot from
    cryin' in fetal
    ALONE on the floor

    Lord, Please help me. I'm...
    tired and lonely

    Crying to you for inner strength
    and patience...hoping you hear my cry I...
    sometimes feel like...I want to die!! waitin'
    for this man who...IS... so fly!

    WHY? WHy? why?
    is my patience wearin' thin
    as I wait...anticipate the arrival
    of the man who'll, sing me a...
    Sweet love song and
    NOT EXPECT me to...SHIMMY...IN
    heels and a thong?

    Is it a fallacy that
    a man can...
    Love me thoroughly?

    Kiss it/lick it/hit it...he's out
    this Aint what bein' a man is...
    all about
    Lord you know the desires of
    my heart
    Knew I'd desire him
    from the start

    Sexy/intelligent w/spirit and class
    Wondering if God sent him as
    MY BOAZ...

    Lord Jesus...I'm tired and desperately lonely

    Preparing to meet my Knight...
    My...
    Knight in Shining Armor who WILL...

    sis

    As long as we continue to seek God in prayer, then we will truly be able to RECOGNIZE the one He's prepared for us...

    & 30 is a GOOD age to find fulfillment ~ finally.
    (40's even BETTA!) :wink:

    Thank you for this souldeep piece, my sistah.

    A
