Words About You

To you and For you

Photo

Have you ever secretly 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 significant day like mother's day? If so, this is for you.

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. Meeting someone who can articulate and join the dots for what they see in us is an exciting revelation to experience. Having relevant ammunition to equip ourselves to negate the accusations and negative conversations going on between our head and heart, is a tremendous 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 many powerful advantages. This creates a different attitude in 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 events I've illustrated 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 his struggles and having and only a partial understanding of the battles 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 them? 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, so 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!

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

I love this verse from The Passion Translation and applying this truth and speaking it over ourselves will 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 always affects your confidence. 

The reports 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 barriers. 

How I started writing Poetry .........

When I was a pastor in a small country church which owned the local Christian bookstore in the town, I experienced an encounter with God while I was selecting gifts for the special voluntary members of staff.

I had chosen 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 something 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 are some testimonials from people who have received specific poems from me, thus inspiring me to create this service.

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.

The ability to take something innate, or take an idea and give it a personality that individuals from different walks of life can appreciate in different ways, is an amazing gift.

This is what Lloyd Portman does with his poetry. I try to imagine what goes on in Lloyd’s brain and it’s beyond me. He’s able to transform a statement or even an event by creating beautiful, poetic language, so it takes on a life of its own and brings new meaning to readers.  

Thank you, Lloyd, for using poetry to bring things to life.

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?

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 have received? I believe we all need encouragement every day and many times this is left up to do this for yourself. 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 husband 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.

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 and in the mines in Western Australia. 

No matter what your poetry flavor or need is, I believe the modern style can be more impactful and 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. 

Here are more Testimonies. I appreciate it when my recipients share first hand how their poems affect them.

David Lee Martin, Author & Poet (https://christiancreative.academy)

"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!”

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.

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! 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 has been a great encouragement to me ever since.

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

To Summarise ..........

Are you looking for a personal inspirational word which is 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

This is what I need from you. 

  • The name of the recipient.

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

The price is US$24.97

The 2 Formats your poems will be delivered to you.
