  You Were To this knowing I will always concur I look back and to now and see You Thank You when no one else was, You were Although Your presence was sometimes a blur When in struggles of past support was few In the knowing I will always concur You were there in moments of transfer Were in the dark You gave light that grew Thank You when no one else was, You were Impacting my life in the way You did Has given me hope to live it through In knowing Your always there for my good When others had only left me blue You became my best friend of here Now my friendship with You has grew You healed my fear of no one else being there To this knowing I will always concur In Our relationship my heart does cheer Thank You when no one else was, You were                     ©Doris Elaine

Two Poems preview from the Growing Strong in The Lord Part One

Image
 Here two poems from "I Am Sowed, By God's Word " of the Growing Strong in The Lord series Part One . Also, now in My Faves  series.  Romance Vs. Love There is a difference, romance vs. love Where love does endure the span of time Romance fly's away as a dove Our world making this our climb But temporary thereof Love last a lifetime http:// Romance vs. love Love is prime Above Time   Thoughts : Although still learning and no way claiming to be an expert; but, from my own experiences and talking to others, romance the world does provide and love the Lord does provide. While romance is temporal, love endures, is eternal and given from above.  "And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." (1 Co 13:13, NKJV ).  Thus, romance gives temporary moments, where love endures beyond time and in most case through many circumstances. All of  Corinthians 13   tells us a great deal of what love is  (vs. 4-6 ) ,

To me, it's

 Here a poem from "Growing Strong in The Lord, Part One" now in My Faves book. Sometimes it seems you wait and wait for something to happen in your life when the Lord is actually moving things along to make that thing you want to happen so badly in Him assuring, first, it happens in His timing and second, it happens for the best of all involved. Patience here is a virtue in letting Him make what ever you are praying for happen in His timing because His timing is the best time.  It Just Wasn’t Time When disappointed it wasn’t your time Rather, a connection or a place to be made You don’t always see it ahead of time As in sometimes the moment does fade Because it just wasn’t time   Thrust in the Lord God, you’ve prayed Hope comes to you meantime As He provides you not to be afraid Even when you’ve waited a lifetime   Your way He makes just in time No need to ever be dismayed He will make your wait as prime Because it just wasn’t time   Thoughts : When it seems you are w

Poem Preview from "I Am Sowed, By God's Word"

HI guys, Here a poem from " I Am Sowed, Part One" , now in My Fave s book.  This is a  Noet Poem, a  very simple to understand form. It is a nine-line poem that starts at line one with nine syllables and decreases one number in syllables with each line; so by the time line nine is formed it is one syllable word. You can catch more forms in my Rhyme  It Out   Project!  two book series. This poem is one of my favorites as it notes the difference in love and romance; and believe  me, there is a difference.  Romance Vs. Love   There is a difference, romance vs. love Where love does endure the span of time Romance fly’s away as a dove Our world making this our climb But temporary thereof Romance vs. love Love is prime Above Time   Thoughts : Although, still learning and no way claiming to be an expert; but, from my own experiences and talking to others, romance the world does provide and love the Lord does provide.

New Poem "Losing Faith in Humankind"

  Losing Faith in Humankind How You must feel when to us You aligned And we let You down time after time It hurts when You lose faith in humankind Through Your Son Your love for us redesigned Giving us hope in this faith to attain Showing feelings to us You designed When hard for us to believe in mankind For faith in others can leave a stain  As it hurts losing faith in humankind It's the worse feeling when faith is lost Especially  when in mankind it's gone The pain resides deep inside at cost Wondering how in this one lives on It's faith in You that gives us reason When faith in mankind is withdrawn  When to faith in man becomes treason  You felt this when to us You aligned In You my faith will get through this season  Thou, it hurts losing faith in humankind         ©Doris Elaine

Two Poems' previews from Growing Strong in The Lord "I Am Sowed - Part One"

 Hi guys, Here two poem previews from Growing Strong in The Lord series, "I Am Slowed - Part One", now in My Faves book. We all struggle in one way or another; especially today. For single and coupled parents alike, it's hard when you don't have the funds to give your child(ren) a holiday you wish you could. In these struggling times, always remember you give a gift that has infinite value that money can't buy; the gift Love. Giving one your love is the most precious gift one can give in this upcoming holiday season. Let these poems be a reminder of that and be thankful in giving and in giving of this precious gift! The Skill and Strength of Love     Truth be told, this world money talks People are taught this from young Raised under this skill, love soon walks To one, love of money is then sung   Where one is given the skill of struggle In survival, one is taught strong For love of money, there no juggle In the skill of survival, love there last long   Let t

Poem preview from "I Am Sowed" Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One

 Here a poem from Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One (I Am Sowed) , now in My Faves book . It speaks of how we Christians need to try to understand how to effectively deliver God's message in today's language as yesterday's language isn't always effective. We can call on God to help us be strong in this endeavor.  A New Normal   There’s a new normal for today What was yesterday is no longer But it’s the same for Christians some say   In learning God’s word to stay stronger Yes, we must in order not to stray However, our approach now as a warmonger   In speaking His word in order to convey The message, in hoping it to stay longer Our voice not afraid as we speak and pray This a new normal today for us to be stronger     Thoughts : Today in society’s turmoil and disbelief Christians must learn to be strong and wise. That is a challenge in deliverance of God’s message-the truth. We must learn to speak today’s language. For there’s a spiritual war at hand and we

A Poem Preview from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One"

Here a poem from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One", now in My Faves book.  This poem hits close to my heart. It's very true, we can't pick our kin folks. But we can chose how we decide to interact with our kin; our blood. That being said, God gave us each other on purpose as a blessing towards each other. In this, some may waver in the treatment they give each another simply because once adulthood comes into play, some may not agree and/or approve of the action(s) of a blood kin. In today's society, seems more care and attention is given to the waters of societal preference over God given blood-ship; in a sense, making water thicker than blood. It's important to remember God's gift of blood-kin in swimming this vast ocean of today's society.  Water Thicker Than Blood   In the aspect of reality blood is thicker than water But, in the aspect of society today water seems thicker The idea of family society now has slaughter Now accepting one as ki

Another Poem from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One

 Hi Guys, Here a poem preview from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One" now featured in My Faves. I really like this poem for the hope it gives us all. Hope of an eternal future comes in trusting and believing in the Lord. Never give up Hope! Hope: That Not Seen     Sometimes you don’t see things well Blind spots, the devil creates between You and where your spirit does dwell Then hope becomes that not seen   Sometimes your just want to yell As some people become to you mean In their need to greatly compel As hope becomes that not seen   Sometimes you just try to excel When others coming onto the scene Giving to you your moment dispel Then hope becomes that not seen   All the time the Lord does foretell Us to come to Him to convene When in this world your dreams fell As hope becomes that not seen   Thoughts: To keep going when it seems odds are against you and/or the service you are trying to give requires Hope and that Hope is Trust in the Lord, its okay to have Hop
