Words About You

To You And For You

Image

Have you ever desired to receive motivational or insightful words written in a poetic format for you? 

Have you ever needed an insightful poem for a special occasion like a wedding, birthday, funeral, or any other significant day like mother's day? If so, this is for you too.

There is a deep need within each of us to know ourselves and understand as much as we can where we fit in this jigsaw puzzle called life. When someone can articulate and join the dots for what they see in us is exciting to experience. Having relevant ammunition to equip ourselves against the accusations and negative conversations going on between our head and heart is a positive advantage.

Here are two significant quotes for you to think about. 

Mark twain 

"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."

Standing in the confidence of knowing who you are has such powerful advantages. The result of this creates a different attitude within you, which manifests as humility to serve. Have you discovered your WHY yet?

Robin Williams 

“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”

What are the battles you are fighting within yourself and are you being kind to yourself?

The question about being kind to yourself is very real. So often the internal discussion we have with ourselves is negative. This discussion is so often all about the things you can't do or are not good at. The poem below illustrates the wonderful experiences we have in life which make us better people. During these times of reflection about ourselves, which are usually painful, we learn valuable lessons.

The Robin Williams quote is now far more relevant to us than when Robin first quoted it. Knowing now about the struggles he was having, which were masked by his humor, we must take this quote to heart. 

I believe our own negative self-talk is the ultimate self-harming we engage in and the worst thing is it's habitual! If you knew of the battles many individuals were fighting, how would you treat those people? For example, what would you have said to Robin Williams? Being kind to yourself is not something we discuss very much with others. How do you encourage yourself? Do you encourage others or do you only encourage your friends?

I remember filling up at a gas station one day and noticing one of the attendants quite downcast and despondent. I looked him in the eye, placed my hand on his shoulder and said, "Hey Bro you will get through this." He then told me why he was in this state. One of his son's friends had committed suicide about a week prior and every night at about 2 am their home was being visited by a spirit mimicking his son's friend. They were being terrorized by this spirit. After his shift finished at 11 pm, we prayed through and cleansed his home. The home was never terrorized again, and the man came to salvation 2 days later!

I love this verse from The Passion Translation and applying this truth and speaking it over ourselves will help to transform us.

Philippians 4:8 TPT Keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.

The message in the poem is about scars being the evidence of wounds we have suffered. Figuratively, they speak to us about experiences we have had in the past, which we never forget. Do you remember when and how you were injured? What lessons did you learn?

Do you understand how your self-talk affects your life? Self-harming has a far deeper effect on you than may know. Your self-worth and self-esteem will always affect your confidence. 

The reports I have received from all the recipients of these poems have all said the poems have encouraged them in their moments of doubt and downtime. The poems have also clarified aspects of their lives to themselves and given them confidence and faith to push harder and break through their barriers.

Anyone Can Coach

Lloyd, the poetry that you have written for me hits home time and time again! It's amazing how many times it's EXACTLY what I need in that moment! Your poetry speaks deeply to me, and affirms and encourages me in my struggles and my journey. Your poetry has blessed me beyond measure over the years.

​You seem to know the perfect words to send at the perfect time. So many of the poems felt inspired when they reached me, and they touched me right where I needed it. I believe God has uniquely blessed the words in your hand and your pen.

Thank you so much for who you are!

Lloyd’s unique spiritual gift of prophetic poetry is at first shocking! So be warned before you get a Lloyd poem. When gifted with mine it took me a minute to process someone was able to see me so clearly. Many times, I’ve wished someone could really understand me. And, other times, I’d wished I could even understand myself. Lloyd’s “Inside Me” poem did both for me. He’s able to tap into a person’s spiritual essence and bring out what the Holy Spirit is quietly and slowly revealing to them. This is definitely Lloyd’s spiritual gift. I keep my Lloyd poem close to me all the time. When I get a little confused, I pull it out to read.

I cannot begin to express how intuitive and Spirit led Lloyd Portman is when it comes to writing Spirit led poetry for others.

He recently wrote me a poem that dived right into what is my biggest obstacle - ME! His poem was touching on subjects that I had been praying about (and which he had no direct knowledge of). The Holy Spirit used Lloyd to let me know the “future was in His hands” and that I was not to “give into fear and insecurity” as it led to these things!

I highly recommend you contact Lloyd and find out what the Holy Spirit has to say about YOU! The question is not whether the Holy Spirit will answer your prayers - but rather will you allow Him to answer your prayers and give you guidance - through Lloyd?

How Did I Start Writing Poetry?

When I was a pastor in a small country church, I had a really exciting encounter with God while I was selecting gifts for the special voluntary members of staff. The church owned the bookstore.

I had chosen the gifts and was ready to enter them in the book when God interrupted me. He said to me "Put the gifts back and take 5 blank cards home and give them something from the Pastor's desk".

The exciting thing which happened was God gave me 5 prophetic poems, one for each staff member. I had never written a poem in my life before. Furthermore, God fulfilled each one of these prophetic words the following year for them.

It was a very exciting experience when God introduced me to writing poetry. I am not at all proficient with grammar or spelling as I have issues with dyslexia and learning. I am slowly overcoming this and instead of not having any motivation to write, I now spend much of my day doing this.

Here is something which YOU can experience for yourself?

This brings me to my offer which I hope you will be interested in. I would love to be able to do this for you.

I have written many poems for individuals which have profoundly affected them. I have a few stories and testimonies from people, about the results of the poems I have written. These results have astounded me!

These testimonies are the motivation for this new service. I am offering a service to write an insightful personal poem for you or for any special occasion you may request. 

Here's what I am offering you.

As you will have read in the testimonials, the words they have received have amazed the recipients. I have been writing these poems for different people for some time and testing this out to offer this as one of my products .......  "wordsaboutyou"

I am very encouraged with the results I have received so far and now it's your turn to receive your personal poem. How would it feel to receive a poem like Michelle or Bob? I believe we all need encouragement every day and so often this is left up to us to do this for ourselves. How do you do this?

Recently I met a man who was also a Poet and I felt a need to encourage him, so I wrote him a poem, just for him. He told me he had never received a personal poem, ever! Many people have said the same thing to me. I have also heard many women tell me how their husbands used to write them poems when they were dating before they were married, but haven't done so since! I am also developing a product for this need, so watch this space.

Image

Meet Lloyd

Hi, my name is Lloyd Portman, and I have been writing poetry for over 35 years. It's now my daily habit and enjoyment. Subjects I write about are everywhere, therefore poetry flows from the pen of my heart as I articulate the various moods and vagaries of my subjects. 

I am aware of the fragility and sensitivity of the heart and I often compare the heart with a sea anemone. The seasons of our heart affect the different views of how we read and receive messages. As I craft my poetry, I endeavor to capture the moods and atmosphere of my subjects for the reader to appreciate and enjoy.

image

Depending on the emotional state of the receiver, deciphering the message is intended to be encouraging. If you are needing some encouragement, the poem may have precisely the message you are looking for. 

I have an understanding about the emotional tides we all work around and no matter if the tide is in or out, it never stands still. There's no doubt, we all enjoy being encouraged and inspired, as these are basic human requirements, like food and water! Because poetry connects with our emotions, we need to read it with our heart.

The psychological definitions of our various emotional states are well documented. We are high or low and everything in between, it's that simple!

I started coaching people how to write poetry many years ago. I had some fun teaching tradespeople on building sites in the mines in Western Australia. 

No matter what your poetry flavor or need is, I believe the modern style of prose can be more impactful as it fits the modern minimalistic lifestyle better. It is very different from how it was written in previous centuries. All have their place. 

One constraint I had to work through was my mindset. This was regarding what was the accepted poetry writing standard, either rhyme or prose? I have written with the prose style because I prefer my poetry to be short and punchy. 

In the beginning, I wrote rhyming poetry as I thought this is how poetry was written! It never felt comfortable or natural and after battling with this for some years, I changed my style. That's a story for some other time.

I love reading Lloyd’s poems! Each poem speaks to me. I feel as if it’s a personal message from God. The poems restores me and lifts me up; I get encouraged from each one.

Teaching, guiding and leaving you with contentment for the very special gift he shared with you.

I typically don't enjoy poetry because I don't always understand their meaning, but not Lloyd's. His poems are the most heartfelt, loving, caring poems I have ever read.

I've received a few of his poems and every time they bring me to tears as I realize how much they touch my heart. Thank you, Lloyd, for being such an amazing poet.

"I have always been a lover of poetry - from the classics to the quirky, the Psalms to modern lyrics. The way that poetry demands words to be boiled down to their essentials always fascinates me. Just a few lines, a single word, can say more than several paragraphs. So, when I turned 44, and totally out of the blue, Lloyd Portman sent me a personal poem he had written for me, I was amazed. His small poem was packed with a big punch, and genuinely touched and inspired me (it still does today every time I read it). Lloyd has an incredible ability to challenge, inspire, question and express things that reach deep on the inside of his readers. I can think of no one better to connect with than Lloyd Portman!”

My Inspiration ........

I remember sitting in the front row at a conference listening to a prophet expounding on a verse from Romans 12. As he preached I became really really excited because everything he said resonated with me! In my heart, I was saying "That's me, that's me. At last, I understand myself"! Immediately following that revelation the speaker pointed to me and said "For that is you, for that is you my servant…….."! I can honestly say that this prophetic word was hugely significant and has been a great encouragement to me ever since.

This has been my inspiration and motivation and such a powerful weapon to fight against any doubt and negative self-talk!

To Summerize ........

Are you looking for a personal inspirational word that will be written in a poetic prose format, this is for you. 

We often compare ourselves with others, then the self-talk begins and we tell ourselves the negatives of what we are not, or not good at …... The damage further affects our self-image and esteem. 

We need some independent unsolicited opinions to counter the destructive self-talk and appreciate ourselves afresh. 

Words written on a page have permanency and can be read over and over, whereas spoken words can be forgotten. 

Here is my offer

I will write a poem in a prose format for you, or someone you want to give it to, and the occasion you need it for. 

This is what I need from you. 

  • The name of the recipient.
  • The gender of the recipient.
  • The purpose of the poem.
  • The age of the recipient (optional)
  • The email where you want your download to be sent.

 

I am really looking forward to hearing from you

The 2 Formats your poems will be delivered to you in.
