Being Understood Is A Luxury

Hello eveyone! I hope you all had a blessed Christmas this year and are looking forward to the upcoming new year!  This month of December has turned out to be quite busy for me, and so I have not yet recorded a new Spreaker podcast for December,  however I do have a new podcast already prepared and hope to get it recorded within the next day or two!  As always I will post some of the excerpts here on the blog from the podcast once it has been recorded!  I am doing a special blog post today because I published a recent poem,  Being Understood Is A Luxury,  on my Real Talk Radio Facebook page, and one of my friends wanted to know if I would be publishing the poem here on the blog as well.  I thought that was a great idea and so here I am!   The inspiration for this poem came from the idea that we have all felt misunderstood at different times in our lives and I was thinking about how lonely this can sometimes make us feel.  What has helped me when I feel this way is remembering that not always being understood is a part of life, and what has helped me more than anything else to make peace with that,  is knowing that God not only understands me,  but knows me better than I know myself!  The poem is written on the picture for this blog post,  but the writing is small,  so I will also include the poem written out for you at the bottom of this post.  I also want to be sure to say a special thank you to my friend Mary for inspiring me to put the poem here on the blog, and for helping to encourage me to keep writing these poems as the inspiration comes!  I am also ever thankful to the Lord for the inspiration from Him for the poems and I hope and pray that you will be blessed as you read them!  In my next Spreaker podcast I will be talking about the intriguing concept that God often communicates to us through whispers,  I hope you will be able to tune in!  Until then many blessings to you!  Here is the poem!

Being Understood Is A Luxury –

From moderate to extreme,  there

will be those who disagree.

Being understood is a luxury so

know that most will not understand!  Better to love and

accept than to judge and reject!

Keep it simple as you keep moving forward and know that it

just won’t be handed to you,  so just do your best,  and fear not

the resistance;  your persistence in your direction will in time bring
