Date with Destiny

I had a date with destiny and loved the way he looked at me.

Reflecting doe-eyed devotee, our fairy tale future, guaranteed.

That’s how it was supposed to be. But life’s a bitch, unfortunately,

There are no second dates with destiny. Just fragments of fate and lines of poetry.

  1. Hi Rae. Keep it real. I just told a woman how she has to put aside her constant worrying by finding a vision of Heaven and going there. Constantly worrying binds us from the obvious and simple solution. Fact of the matter is, Jesus sees the solution for every problem. There is a time and place for action and a time and place to relax, and let God do His part. When we think we can do it on our own, all we do is beat at the problem, beat at ourselves, and add worry wrinkles. Get into your personal scene of Heaven. Look at the beauty, smell the scents, admire the peace. Get out of the world for a moment and live the way God intended life to be. Then take a look at this world and decide what is worth worrying about.

  2. I liked the first half. I spell destiny with a capital D and the guarantee I saw as the Holy Spirit who has sealed us with Himself. In that light, the rest doesn’t make sense.

    A great piece overall though.

    Think about it.

    KEEP THE LIGHT ON!

  3. That’s an interesting interpretation. Since you’re looking at it from a spiritual point-of-view, the second half wouldn’t make sense. I wrote it about the one that got away- from a lost romance point-of-view.

  4. That makes sense, but don’t make it who you are.
    God is showing me so much lately, who I am, so I see a lot of poems written from a spiritual perspective or a personal one, when they’re not.
    He’s just sooooo good.

  5. Destiny is one of those individuals who needs to be grabbed and wrestled to the ground. Let him slip away and you may never see him again. ..unless of course the King of Fate decrees destiny should come back. He is destiny’s boss after all.

  6. Rae,

    Broken pieces come with lessons, too. Thank the Lord that He knows how to put them back together better than we can.
