A Villanelle Poem for Thought

 



 


 

What God Says

 

My past in this day does not sway
To where my being currently resides
As I believe God, not what others say

For He has placed my past at bay
Giving me a future that He provides
Which my past in this day does not sway

And to my salvation Jesus did pay
Granting me grace as my soul He guides
I'm believing God, not what others say


This new birth, the same for others I pray
For the Lord has greatly worked on my insides
As my past in this day does not sway

To the new me, others need not dismay
I'm in this to stay as my soul decides
In believing God, not what others say

Believe it's me now, to this I relay
For in my soul His spirit abides
As my past in this day does not sway
I believe God, not what others may say

Thoughts: People, in particular relatives and/or friends, want to judge one so very much; especially when one turns their life over to God and decides to be the Christian God always meant for one to be. Some have a tendency to look at one's past or past demeanor and say "no way" when God says, Yes way! Being born again means one becomes a new creature and one's past and old way of being is forgiven and forgotten. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things become new" (2 Corinthians 5:17. NKJV). It so sad that people want to hold one's past over one and not believe one can change; especially when it comes to change in becoming a spirit filled Christian. When one faces this judgment from others, know that just as God uses people to get His word out, the devil also uses people to try and diminish the work that God is doing in one. And, many times this use and or trickery can come from the most unexpected familiars (family and friends); especially those that want to keep bringing your past up. When one does become a born again Christian, many times, to others it may appear one has become a "Bible Thumping Christian" that some may see as one being outrageously religious. Well, in the first place I don't claim to be religious; I don't belong to a religion, I belong to Jesus Christ. Secondly, I know I have the Holy Spirit within my being and this I will not ignore. And I'm not ashamed to say, "I'm a Christian". If one wants to take that as being a Bible Thumping Christian, then so be it. Do I still have flaws, yes I do, I never claimed that I don't. But, I refuse to back down from what I know and what God has done for me. If that means appearing as being too religious to others and they want to say "no way, I know your past". Well, I say to them, "God also knew my past and has forgiven it and forgotten it and this is something I will always be grateful for and will never back down from this gracious gift". I don't care what anyone says about me! What matters to me is what God says!!

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
