I am a kept woman

I am a Kept Woman

You see there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)
There were times when I thought I could go no longer,
But the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)
At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD kept my mouth shut.. (Psa. 13)
Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough,
But GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25 -34)
When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up.
When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)
I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me!
I'm blessed to be 'kept '

I'm "Kept" by the Love and Grace of God


  1. Oh, this was wonderful!
    A very moving post.
    Thank you for the reminder of all the times the Good Lord has kept me going too!

  2. Very nice post Garnet, I am right alone with you on it!

  3. Lovely. I will never hear that saying again and not have it immediately replaced by this. Oh THANK YOU!

  4. I like being a 'kept woman'. *s*

  5. I guess I'm a "kept woman", too! This is such a great reflection!

  6. Oh Garnet, I love this post and it is so you. It shows how you appreciate all the good in your life and accept all your troubled times. A good reminder for all of us....:-) Hugs
