This Is The Real Me,No Pretense, No Frills

Updated on July 23, 2013

This Is The Real Me, No pretense,No Frills

This is the real me , no pretense , no frills,

Not pretending I am something that I am not.

I can not brag of all my worldly possessions,

I will tell you the truth I do not have a lot.


I could not be an orator, that's not for me,

I would stumble around before I could begin.

God knows me and He also knows my heart,

That is why He lets me speak with my pen.


He could have chosen someone much smarter,

Someone much wiser and with a willing heart,

Someone who could hold all folks attention

To the end of speech right from the very start.


Then God looked down and saw an old lady,

One not too dumb but yet not overly smart:

Maybe one who could truly share their lives

And make them feel that you were a part.


If God could really use someone like me

To help Him spread His Word all around

Someone who would never put on any airs

And at times then my mistakes will be found.


So God gives me words to twist and turn,

And sometimes they will turn out all right.

Put a period and a comma in the right place ,

My Little Child, Lover of My Peace and Light.


I need someone to reach the needy souls,

Forever searching ,they know not for what.

He looked down at me with all of my flaws,

He tells me to give them what they sought.


But now my Lord will then gently remind me,

He doesn't give Words for wealth or fame:

But sends them down as they are needed

To bring greatest Praise to His Holy Name.


He gives the Words He knows are needed;

Then He'll receive all the Love that He is due.

On that day that from on earth I am departing ,

Thanks to You, my Lord,I will make it through !

God gave me these words to start out with

this morning and as you know by now what

He gives me I try to make a poem out of it.

It may not always be the best but I will try to

make it rhyme. I am sure this one won't be

featured but that is not the reason I put it

on here. I will always try to work with what

God sends me.I have to admit there have

been times when I wondered what can I

can make out of it but I will always try!

      Miss Clara, God lives in your heart. He uses your mind and your pen to write for Him. That's the real you and I'm privileged to read your work.

      Hello Michael, good to hear from you , it had stormed here yesterday and I could not get Hub Pages , later on I could not get anything on here , I had tried to put this poem on just when I lost Hub pages so I wasn't sure if it went on till today ,It hadn't so I hit edit to start again. When it came on I saw where I had made a big mistake so I fixed it and I thank God that He wouldn't let it go on last night. It does pay to know Him. I guess it is comments like yours that makes me want to stay on here, I guess even in our dumbest days God can use us. Thank you , Clara

      Hello MsDora. It is good to hear from you .My brother was completely different from me , he never met a stranger and could talk to anytone, any time, I think I must have envied him when I was younger . I think everybody that he met liked him,he was the outgoing one and I was just too shy most of the time. I guess God can use both kinds ,it is a good thing we aren't all alike. If I had not asked God to touch my pen I probably would not even be on here , Love ,Clara

      Hello Sparklea, That is my prayer that I will touch people's heart and that they will come to Jesus. I know it takes a lot more than that, if Jesus doesn't draw them to Him no amount of writing will get them to Heaven.We never know how far man has gone into sin , we just do our best and hope that it is good enough. It is good to know that I have inspired some of them ,and I am glad that I have inspired you ,love you,Clara

      Hi Dearest Clara,

      God truly does give each of us certain gifts, and we are to use them to glorify Him, and that is exactly what you do precious heart.

      You are making a difference in this world, for you say He gives you His words, and His Word is truth, and truth never returns void!!!

      God bless you for this lovely poem and deep reflective thoughts.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Hello Faith,

      Thank you for your comments .I really appreciate them . I am not sure how much good I am doing on here but I have received comments from people that think I am helping .I certainly hope so,it is good to think that I am doing something for The Lord. I have many loved ones who need to come to Jesus but they are not interested ,I put these poems on in hopes it will get to their hearts but only God knows if I will be able to reach any of them .I know all that I can do is try and pray for them, prayer can be powerful and I do my best .Love, Clara

      I have been holding onto your email notice and finally made it here which I will always try my best to do. Couldn't wait to see what you wrote and I am not disappointed! It is so frustrating when people will not listen to us but all we can do Clara is give them God's word and it is up to them then to accept or reject. Of course we will never stop hoping and praying loving them as God loves us. I know many will help many souls enter Heaven and I know God will think no less of us if we only reach one. It is worth all we write.
