Poem for Thought - "Chasing Life"

 

 




Chasing Life

Many try so hard at the high-life
In gains of what they can have here
Gamblers chase money, I chase life

More important is the after-life
For to here we do disappear
As many try so hard at the high-life

Chasing money can cause much strife
Placing one's being in turmoil and fear
Gamblers chase money, I chase life

It doesn't matter to material I gain
For after here I can't take it with me
So what does it matter to what I attain

In knowing this I am set free
From the life of chasing money
Because more important is life with thee

For life with God will be very sunny
As many try so hard at the high-life
I'd rather chase life over money
Gamblers chase money, I chase life

Thoughts: Gambling with where your soul will be after this life, in heaven or hell, is something many people don't even think about when they are engaged in obtaining riches in this life. Some even have to have the best of the best; even, all the way down to what food they eat. This is sad when there are so many people in the world doing without. And, so many people in the world eating what ever they can get their hands on. Why do people feel they need the prime cut of meat, when their human shell will be just as satisficed, if not more, with something on their bellies? People need to be more worried about where they will be spending their eternal life than in gains of what they can get here in this life. "Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life" (1 Timothy 6:17-19. NKJV). Although, having a good life here in gains of materialistic face saving attributes is something that many wish for, it does nothing for your soul; only for your life while here. It's okay to want, to me, it's a matter of if I need. Something I don't need is a life of chasing money, as a gambler would. I'd rather not be a gambler with my soul in chasing money or in saving face in gains of materialistic attributes; rather, I prefer to chase eternal life!

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'.

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).
