A Villanelle Poem - What If?

 


What If ?

 

If I may to this give some insight 
As some may believe Christians are wrong
I'm here to say to all, what if we're right?

What does it hurt to believe despite
In helping one in this life to be strong
If I may to this give some insight

To this hope of a future is bright
As in our hearts this sings out in a song
I'm here to say to all, what if we're right?

Some will burn for not believing this foresight
That Christianity's been right all along
If I may to this give some insight

As non-believer's soul awakes in fright 
When one is cast to where one's life prolong
I'm here to say to all, what if we're right?

 

Even if wrong, we're happy and alright
As a Christian knows to here want be long
Hope I have to this given some insight
I'm here to say to all, what if we're right?

Thoughts: You know so many non-believers of Christianity want to say we Christians are wrong, silly, and even, we are wasting our lives believing in something we know in our hearts to be true; that is to the non-believer, invisible. Well, let me ask you this, what if we're right? How wrong, silly, and a waste of life for a non-believer while burning in hell for eternity! Time is running out, rather it be in your lifetime the world ends or your life ends first. Know this, the sooner one does believe and start working on one's spiritual growth, the greater one's reward in heaven. I have been greatly blessed in experiencing some things that let's me know beyond a doubt that God is real and Jesus was sent to earth and rose from the dead to give humanity a hope of spending eternity in heaven with our creator, God. Although, I wish this for every soul on earth, each of us have our own path in life. Even if I'm wrong in believing-which I know I'm not- at least I'm happy and have hope beyond what this world has to offer. I just pray that many do choose to believe, because What if?

Holy Spirit- Acrostic Poem

 
"But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him." (1John 2:27. NKJV)
"Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13. NKJV). 
"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." (John 14:26. NKJV).
"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God," (Romans 8:16. NKJV).
"By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit." (1 John 4:13. NKJV). 
"For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit." (1 Corinthians 12:12. NKJV). 
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law." (Galatians 5:22-23). 
"Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." (Romans 5:5. NKJV).

Poem of Thought

        


The Beauty Inside

 

How wonderful it is to be Your bride 
In Your heartfelt care Your love does show
Thank You Lord for the beauty inside

When in this world my heart did divide
You dried my tears, this I know
How wonderful it is to be Your bride

And now with You as my spiritual guide
My heart is healing as love does grow
Thank You Lord for the beauty inside

They say beauty only goes skin deep
But to this I know to be a lie
As from within is where beauty is keep

Some only know what's seen with one's eye
In not looking inward to one's heart
No matter how hard some do try

 

Beautiful one's soul that God did impart
How wonderful it is to be Your bride
In giving me a beautiful restart
Thank You Lord for the beauty inside

Thoughts: Although it is important to keep up one's appearance in making one feel good about themselves, more important it is to take care of one's being inside; after all, God gave us a soul to groom, as well. In this, as Christians, the Lord Jesus Christ is our spiritual guide and we are His bride. He is preparing us for our union in heaven with Him, maturing our spiritual being to a place of beauty when we are accepted into heaven. Jesus can take one's being from the worse past ever and blossom it into a beautiful present and future with Him. But it is up to us to accept this transformation from dormancy to beauty in preparing our beautiful souls for our union with Him. It's sad that in today's society, it seems, some live only for outward appearance. Even more sad, is how media plays a major role in the importance of this now outward appearance society making it hard to see beyond one's own sight. We enter this world as babies with the innocence of a beautiful soul. And, although some may have a tuff start in life, once one matures into adulthood, it truly is up to us to keep that beauty God gave us. Even if one is back and forth with maturing spiritually-as was I-one can still, at some point, make an effort to see beyond outward appearance in maturing one's beautiful God given soul. I've gone down some hard roads and it took a very long time for me to realize I need to be prepared for my reunion with my spiritual husband, Jesus Christ. In preparation, I knew my soul needed a revamping. I also know I have a ways to go before I am fully prepared to be the spiritual bride Jesus meant for me to be; however, I thank Him for the opportunity-beyond my past-to grow out of His love the beauty inside.

Poem - They Don't Get To

 




They Don't Get To!

 

It's so wonderful to be you! 
Embracing the who that God created
Because of whom they are, they don't get to

Your body in form to yourself be true
The beauty within yours be fated
It's so wonderful to be you!

The world needed beauty, to this He knew
Giving to the other that awaited
Because of whom they are, they don't get to!

Placing us on the scene, forming beauty
Our place here in making a difference
We're not here to be a sleeping-beauty

As to this God made this indifference
It's all about embracing this yourself
For us to this He gave deliverance

 

You are woman, so love thyself
It's so wonderful to be you!
God created you from beauty itself
Because of whom they are, they don't get to!

                                                                                                                              ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: God made all of us in the form we were meant to be rather female or male. Women embrace who you are and bloom as you were meant to. No, I'm not a feminist! I do, however, believe in the sense of as spiritual beings' woman and man are created equal, but in the sense of physical beings' we were created different for the sake of the needs of this world and the need of each other. Think about it! Men contribute attributes to the physical world around us in strength and more, of course; you got to love them. Whereas woman contribute attributes of beauty and inner strength in the world. Woman we have to be strong in faith to survive this world; right! That does include embracing the beauty of being a woman. I really like makeup, jewelry, doing my nails, and dressing nice. Although this is considered outer beauty, it's also a part of taking care of yourself on the inside in feeling good about yourself in embracing who you are. We woman provide so much to this world, both inside and out; we are beauty and more. Take care of yourself and embrace the beauty; because men, they don't get to.
