A Poem Preview from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One"


Here a poem from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One", now in My Faves book.  This poem hits close to my heart. It's very true, we can't pick our kin folks. But we can chose how we decide to interact with our kin; our blood. That being said, God gave us each other on purpose as a blessing towards each other. In this, some may waver in the treatment they give each another simply because once adulthood comes into play, some may not agree and/or approve of the action(s) of a blood kin. In today's society, seems more care and attention is given to the waters of societal preference over God given blood-ship; in a sense, making water thicker than blood. It's important to remember God's gift of blood-kin in swimming this vast ocean of today's society. 

Water Thicker Than Blood

In the aspect of reality blood is thicker than water
But, in the aspect of society today water seems thicker
The idea of family society now has slaughter
Now accepting one as kin as now comes quicker

As one judged in society more harshly these days
Blood-ship thins, water and blood now being no difference
Because the wave of expectations has become life’s maze
We give-in to what one does for another all the preference

As Christians water over blood should not be this flood
In not being able to forgive when kin does offend
Water should never become thicker than blood
Just because now in society this be the trend
I ask, what happened to kinship love, given from above?

Thoughts: True, we can’t pick our family; thus, our blood. But in society today it seems people forget this placement in life to be a blessing; especially when a kin folk does something that one doesn’t approve of, or that offends, or when one isn’t able to do as other family members are able to do. Seems the saying “Blood is thicker than Water” not to be true these days. So, what can one do? One can try to remember the joy when God first gave you the blessing of knowing one to be a family member. Pray and forgive as this union He gave out of love because in reality blood is thicker than water.

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).
