God's Grace and Faith

Rdsparrowriter is a Sri Lankan Poetess written story books in poetry form. She's passionate and writes from heart covering subjects.



Today I like to celebrate God's grace and His faith in me

Have I wasted time whenever I get a new responsibility?

It made me wonder when a young man commented of me

Is waiting on the Lord foolish before a commitment of unity?

Have I wasted time waiting for 'The One' to approach me?

Have I wasted years preparing myself for Holy Matrimony?

Am I supposed to jump into a relationship just because?

Fearing that my aging years has no pause.

Waiting in the Lord doesn't mean enduring loneliness

For me, it means celebrating and appreciating my singleness

Spending time with my loved ones, giving a helping hand

Having a deeper relationship with my Papa God.


I get more time to spend on improving myself

Reading and writing, painting my furniture and shelf

Singing, dancing, baking and having fun with my playmates

Watching cartoons, sewing, crochet and to make fun crafts.

If God has a purpose for my life then why worry?

I'm glad how God has created me since I'm not in a hurry

To jump into a relationship just because the others are

My biological clock has its limits and ticking so fast.

I desire Papa God to be my Author and Holy Matchmaker

If I to ever enter into the covenant of married life together

I will not chase, try to convince or manipulate another

I work to better myself by practicing purity before God the Father.


If my heart is genuinely interested only I can move forward

Otherwise it's not that I'm commitment phobic or a coward

I cannot accept just anyone as my special life partner

If my heart is not filled with peace, I can't be the lifetime supporter.

My prayer is that whoever comes my way to find their 'One'

When I know that I'm not the chosen, to be their 'One'

May God's grace and favour be in abundance in their lives

As they move forward with their search and married lives.

Before last year I wasn't ready or sure that I wanted to be married even

Since last year only I have started praying seriously asking God for my 'One'

If it is His plan and purpose for me to become 'One flesh' with His chosen

To prepare my heart to accept and respect him as my 'Special godly One'.

It made me wonder whether I'm too late to pray for my life partner?

Do I even have what it takes to be in a relationship as a helper?

So all my doubts and negative thoughts that I have, I write to my Papa God

And I expectantly wait for an answer from my Papa God.

So the other day I was watching TV and I told my wish to Him

How nice it would be if someone thought of me as theirs other than Him

Just imagine my surprise after two days when I visited my girl Willow

She took my hand while guiding me to toy room said, "You are mine" in mellow.

My heart felt so special ,so warm and filled with happiness

I didn't know Papa God would answer even my wishes

Seeing an actor saying to his girl in a drama only I told Him

Since it wasn't really a serious prayer, it was just sharing with Him.


It's amazing how Papa God cares for me so much

I feel truly special and knowing that He listen so much

I pray that I get to be closer to Him all the days of my life

I don't like to compromise my values to become a wife.

I enjoy reading His Word and discovering new revelations

I learn when I listen to teachers and Pastors

I'm happy knowing that I have Papa God by my side

His arms are the safest place for me to hide.

I'm grateful for Papa God's provision and protection

Being His is the best choice and decision

For me, Papa God is my True Love on earth

So I wait for His plan and purpose in faith.


I'm just surprised even now thinking how Papa God would answer even a simple wish. I'm just glad to know that He listens to me :)

Thank you for letting me know lady Pam Morris :) I'm delighted to hear that you have a close relationship with Papa God. The poem is written from the heart after a conversation I had with a male friend. I ended up probably thinking too much but I'm glad I did as I had these realizations about my life and what is truly important to me :) Take care and may God bless you!!

What a lovely poem. I enjoyed reading it. It was so detailed and so well thought out and expressed. I am not sure if the words are really how you feel. But I must say a big part of your poem expresses me and my relationship with my father (God) how I can trust him in my time of need. Thank you so much for sharing

Excellent words.

I love that last quote. Just because you believed and it didn't work out your way....

What a great reminder that we need to trust in God.

He listens to us & will provide what we need.

His time...not ours.
