A Poem for Thought - "Worship Who?"

 




Worship Who?

Only One deserves worship as King
And to this know, it is not man
In awareness of whom we're worshipping

Some give applause to man in everything
Praising man in making God less than
But only One deserves worship as King

Where rich and famous has become a thing
Some bow down in being man's fan
In awareness of whom their worshipping

No matter to whom you are to here
We should not bow down placing man above
For to here the fame does disappear

But with God our life transforms in love
Which man cannot provide past this place
However, God gives this to man thereof

For He cares deeply for the human race
As the One that deserves worship as King
Our creator gave us hope past here in grace
To stay aware of whom we're worshipping

Thoughts: So often we give man glory forgetting whom is the One that really deserves worshipping. When things go right for us, we or whom ever else is involved, want to give praise to one's self or whom ever else is involved, without realizing it was by God's grace that things did go well for one in that particular situation. It is by God's grace we wake up every morning and by His strength that we make it through the day; not by man's grace nor man's own strength, alone. Yet, so many give praise to one's self or to others involved. How often have you done something that was very hard to do for a stranger and patted your own self on the back, rather than thanking God for being able to do it? It's hard sometimes to thank God or to praise Him when one has had the opportunity, strength, and way to help someone that needed your help.  We often think it was by our own strength, will, and ingenuity that we are able to do something we thought we would never be able to do. In addition, when we see others do something amazing, we often want to praise that person, lifting them to soring heights like that person is some kind of God. While I do agree, some applause-to a certain degree- is warranted when one does something amazing; I can not agree that person should be treated and worshipped like a king or queen of some kind. To me, that's putting that person above God, simply by giving that person all the praise and God none. "Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness." (Psalms 29: 2-4. NKJV). When we worship ourselves and other humans forgetting where our grace came from in doing something, rather amazing or not, that is a form of worship to thyself and others. "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve". (Matthew 4:10.  NKJV). It is important, as Christians, to always give the Lord thanks for any and every feet in life we are able to accomplish and to remember to give thanks in His name; not man's. "You shall fear the Lord your God and serve Him, and take oaths in His name." (Deuteronomy 6:13.NKJV). Our allegiance should always belong to God and not man. He is the only One that deserves our worship as our King. We should always pay attention and be ware of whom we are worshipping!

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
