Another Poem for Thought

 Comes at a Cost


When it seems to you something was lost
This thing you held onto that made you, you
Spiritual maturity comes at a cost

In faith you gave it not to be tossed
Precious to you as others had no clue
When it seems to you something was lost

Expectancy to exclusivity crossed
To this where one's being greatly grew
Spiritual maturity comes at a cost

No promises made to your being was made
Thou hard when that part of you did exist
Harder to move past when to this it fade

Your spirit then only wants it missed
Into prayer your soul does beckon
Where this part of you the Lord has kissed

Making you no less to Him or second
When it seems to you something was lost
Moving on to say to self I reckon
As spiritual maturity comes at a cost

Thoughts: Sometimes we hold onto a part of us that prevents us from spiritually growing. As we have engrained into our own thoughts that part of us is what makes us righteous in God's eyes and acceptable to others. When that part of us may just need to be trimmed off in order to mature in becoming the Christian He wants us to be. We must not think ourselves so righteous that we place ourselves on a thrown; expecting to be treated as a kings or queens by others in holding onto a part of us that we may only see as precious. Although it seems like loosing a precious piece of yourself, the reward in spiritual growth may well exceed this cost because sometimes spiritual maturity comes at a cost.

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth
