Beloved – A Poem

It seems my Thankful Thursday theme has come a long way from its humble beginnings on January 6, 2011 with an acrostic poem titled Thankful. With few exceptions, though, the one constant is that Thankful Thursday means a poem about something I am thankful for.

The other day one of my fellow bloggers wrote about our new name in Christ, and asked her readers what we believed our new name was. My first thought was “beloved.” As I pondered a poem to write for today, I decided that would be my theme.

Beloved

I long to be
Your beloved child
Your cherished friend
Your everything

You long to be
My beloved God
My cherished friend
My everything

It’s not a wish come true
But a prayer answered
That brought us together
As beloved

My beloved is mine and I am his;
he browses among the lilies.
Song of Songs 2:16 (NIV).

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. “It’s not a wish come true / but a prayer answered” I loved that Linda! God bless you, one of His beloved ones! 🙂

  2. This poem is absolutely beautiful! I like your thoughts , too about the name “beloved”…perfect for the Bride of Christ analogy. I also think it is really special that the desire of your heart is so God honoring.

    Blessings,

    • Theresa, I never thought of us being the Bride of Christ and how that fit with this poem. I actually wrote this in about 10 minutes late last night when I should have been going to bed. 🙂 Peace, Linda
