Poem: An Unexamined Life

As noted by Socrates,

an unexamined life

is not worth living;

as a disciple of Christ,

I’ve decided to adopt…

His lifestyle of giving.

Humanity’s selfishness

needs to be subdued daily,

for we need each other;

regardless of opinions,

we’re still God’s offspring

as sisters and brothers.

From embracing The Word,

we go forth as ambassadors,

since Truth we must tell.

For an unexamined life

keeps…

Poem: No Reason to Love Me?

As imperfect as I am,

He still loves me more-

than I can comprehend;

so I take time to explore

His everlasting desire

to be in relationship

with this soul knowing…

that it goes beyond worship.

As a created being of His,

I’m not the final point-

only God has the right

to chose those He anoints.

Though it may seem that

He has no reason to love me,

I’m still one of His children

and my love for Him He…

Poem: Vital Breath

Into the dust, His breath was breathed,

giving Mankind its first gift of Life;

therefore, we should recognize and give

thanks to God, the Holy Spirit and Christ.

Whispers of prayers to our sacred God,

create results within a context of Hope;

time spent with Him accomplishes more

and transcends Humanity’s limited scope

of understanding a lifetime of struggle.

With our voices, we acknowledge, praise,

honor and worship God in acts of…

Poem: Unceasing in Prayer

I’m casting my cares upon You,

while praying throughout the day.

I’m thankful for our relationship

and the Love of Your sacred sway

that permeates my entire being.

For I’ll keep on talking to You,

discussing the issues of my life,

since You will bring me through

safely by Your divine guidance.

In You alone, faith is entrusted,

as this analytical mindset of mine

had been vigorously readjusted.

Knowing that You’re…

Poem: Love, Stability and Peace

As His children, grafted into the Living Tree,

we should be bearing the Spirit’s fruit of:

joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness,

faithfulness, kindness, willpower and Love.

Christian examples are desperately needed,

for a dying World that is going to hell.

Waving a Bible, filled with holy principles,

has never worked, but genuine actions tell

them the absolute truth about Jesus Christ.

Can we expect the unsaved to find release,…

Poem: Let Me Touch His Garment

Many doctors had failed to heal her;

her wealth was gone; unable to cope,

seemingly having no options left, she…

faced the idea of being bereft of hope.

A difficult issue of continual bleeding,

had bothered this woman for twelve years;

purposely maneuvering through the crowd,

she hoped to meet Christ, and draw near.

“If only, I could physically touch Him,

my personal need can be forever met.”

Summoning the last of her inner strength,…

Poem: Intoxicated

O my gracious Lord,

I come into Your Presence,

wanting to touch Your Essence

and to become intoxicated

via Your Holy Spirit.

Let Your joy overflow

over this broken vessel,

as souls quietly wrestle

with faith’s development

in fear and trembling.

Permit me, patient Lord,

to let troubles fade away

temporarily on this day,

as I commune with You

and meditate Your Holy Writ.

O Lord, stir my heart;

pierce its…

Poem: Apostles of Christ

Their humble characteristics are recognizable,

with a lifestyle lacking excess and opulence;

familiar with the idea of “sowing and reaping”,

they know their actions always have consequence.

Apostles of Christ examine ways of Kingdom building,

and are not tied to one specific church location,

for their daily needs are not hierarchically-based.

They avoid wants of gratuitous, personal recognition.

Operating with a pure heart, free of lust for…

Poem: Spiritual Upgrade

Something great is happening for me,

regardless of the situations I see;

my Lord is working behind the scene

and I have been spiritually weaned.

Walking by faith and not by sight,

insures that I sleep well at night.

Happily I enter daily into His rest,

knowing that I’m divinely blessed.

I’m often filled with peace and joy,

when sacred Scriptures are employed;

with a heart of a believer’s trust,

I overcome the pain of being concussed

in…

Poem: Power Thoughts

I’ve decided to not live in fear;

I can do all things through Christ,

Who, with His Word, strengthens me;

God loves this child- unconditionally!

I love different kinds of people

and enjoy helping them with my gifts.

I’ve decided to be difficult to offend;

quick to forgive, repent and befriend

others in the forming of relationships,

helps me in my solo pursuit of peace.

There’s no point to mindlessly hurry,

scurrying about with needless…

Poem: Eternal Embrace

How can I not be full of contentment?

God is not a Man, that He would lie.

On a daily basis, His promises flow;

He is the Source, on Whom I can rely.

Despite the surrounding difficulties,

I’ve purposed to accept His sacred Word;

therefore, I will continue to stand firm,

by His grace and loving messages heard.

His everlasting mercies are renewed;

I remain girded by His faithfulness!

With the thankfulness of my frail heart,

I am still unable to…

Poem: Hymnody

Within the sacred music of worship,

we’re to open our hearts and sing;

flowing from our tongues should be…

genuine praises for Christ our King!

Though the structure of songs vary

between spirituals, hymns and psalms,

in every instance, we acknowledge Him

with our uplifted bosoms and palms.

In making joyful noises unto our Lord,

there’s a freedom of melodic release;

unashamedly, we honor Him together-

contented in our sense of inner…

Poem: Hamartia

Do I need to repeat bad mistakes

of judgment as the prodigal son?

Does shortcomings of Christianity

prevent me from having some fun?

Having a head filled with knowledge

and a restless spirit yearning to feel,

when I’m completely pulled unto Him,

how much of my true self is revealed?

Born into this earthly realm of sin,

I begin life already missing His mark;

falling short of divine perfection,

unto His voice alone I must hearken

to…

Poem: In Him Alone

In Him alone, I find perfect rest for my spirit.

My soul’s satisfaction is girded by Salvation;

Christ is my rock, my fortress of protection,

and the lasting source of my Faith’s foundation.

In Him alone, I place my entire, unshaken trust.

Today, the enemy continues to assault my soul,

using his pain weapon of lie-laden speech;

yet, His Love exudes power that makes me whole.

In Him alone, I have placed my heart’s hope.

My dependence, remains on…

Poem: Christian Ideals

Absolutely essential, for saved people,

is the true concept of Christian ideals.

For they serve as inspirational guidelines,

in the development of holy, inner steel.

These ideals motivate Christians to action,

on behalf of the Christ, within His Will.

In addition, one strives to humbly live,

without the trappings of religious frills.

These principles affect one’s attitude,

in doing what aught to be done in service.

They provide vision with sacred…

Poem: Shout Hosanna!

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Salvation is near.

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Salvation is near.

Lift up your voice,

and joyfully rejoice!

Save us, Dear Lord.

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Save us, Dear Lord.

Soften our hearts,

keep us, in one accord!

Poem: Overcoming Evil with Good (Spiritual Secret)

Ongoing failures of the Church to act,

will guarantee the sure success of evil;

for faith without works is… still dead

and visible today is spiritual upheaval.

The internal chasm between the members

of both sides -the presbytery and laity-

must be bridged with faithful cooperation,

girded with policies that last permanently.

Even today, God is quietly waiting on the Body,

while the unsaved are queued up for Hell.

Individual Faith is a person’s…

Poem: Spirit Filled

We’re not to vex or grieve the Holy Spirit;

instead, we need His anointing on our lives

to spiritually achieve personal victories

and that faith in God- is continually revived.

Being rooted and established in His Love,

we can be dispensers of the Spirit’s fruit-

Manifesting these traits on a daily basis

should be behind the desire of a Holy pursuit.

Peace, Patience, Love, Goodness, Faithfulness,

Joy, Kindness, Gentleness and…

Poem: Good Works

There seems to be ongoing confusion,

regarding the ministry of good works.

After all, Christianity is a lifestyle

and responsibility must not be shirked.

Don’t be deceived by the religious leaders

saying ‘it doesn’t matter in what you believe’.

For the righteousness of Christ is available,

as soon as His promise, you willingly receive.

We are clearly taught within The Word,

that ‘real faith without works is dead’.

Although there is value with…

Poem: Strength Under Control

Blessed are the mild and long-suffering,

for they alone shall inherit the earth;

their happiness and contentment comes…

from only understanding their Godly worth.

Not worried about accusations against me-

my Lord continues to defend His children.

My Lord is the eternal and heavenly advocate

and His Blood overcomes all affects of sin.

Real meekness… is strength under control,

while gentleness demonstrates self-constraint

in the midst of…
