Double Tervillazanelle - Help Me Through Again

 






Help Me Through, Again

 

Ialways find myself seeking You
As in t he world I sometimes find no peace
You give me rest, nothing else helps me through

Material things, how brief the new
As the excitement of new soon does cease
Once again I find myself seeking You

When temporary money does renew
Giving my state of being a false increase
Please give me rest, nothing else helps me through

I seek what this world has to offer
Only to be rejected deep in my soul
Then You give me hope in a counteroffer

You touch my soul in making me whole
When I search for peace this world to obtain
Because You made it clear that is Your goal

No matter to what in this world I gain
I always find myself seeking You
As money and material only brings strain
You give me rest, nothing else helps me through
 
In this world my soul hard to maintain
Seeking for anything to fill a void
I call on You to help me through, again

With drugs and alcoholic I try to refrain
For to this I know joy will not last
In this world where hard my soul to maintain

Please give me strength to this to refrain
As time escapes to this in a daze so fast
I call on You to help me through, again

Although I look and seek the world over
There's nothing, nor no one to my soul appease
Never is my desire appeased soever

With You Lord, my heart and soul agrees
To the desires of this world my soul dies
As only You can to my heart please

Perhaps to here my being need not compromise
In this world where hard my soul to maintain
But knowing with You peace applies
I call on You to help me through, again

Thoughts: I noticed no matter what I do I am never at peace unless I am seeking the Lord; believe me I've tried. I've tried a few things throughout my life and have noticed the closer I get to the Lord, the less things of this world gives me peace and/or rest. I've gone on a shopping spree only to be temporary pleased and as soon as the newness wears off, there I am back at point one of trying to find something to appease me. Yes, I have tried drugs, in my lifetime, only to be wanting more and never satisfied. Money, the root of all evil, I learned to live without and know no amount of money will give me the peace and happiness the Lord can give me. Alcohol, besides the fact I can no longer tolerate it's affect, it too is temporary. Although, in this world of human life we find our highest fulfillment in the love of man and woman, in our spiritual life it's the love of God for His people and Christ for His church, where our soul's highest fulfillment is achieved. To a certain extent I can relate to King Solomon in his search for happiness, only to discover happiness is with God; as well as, peace and rest. As I continuously seek fulfillment here in this world, I know it's with the Lord it will be achieved and with Him I will get through, yet another unfulfilled desire this world has to offer.

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
