"Words of Inspiration" Poem

 God Did Bless

From His thoughts He worked a place for us
In six days Heaven and Earth created
On the seventh day to this God did bless

Day one, light gave to day and night dictated
Sky rose as waters divided, day two
Day three, sea & land and grass & seed allocated

To this setting how splendid the view
Now everything in place for life to thrive
As God saw, this was good, He knew

Day four, the sun, the moon, and stars arrive
Giving us days, weeks, months, and years
Creatures of the sea and air, day five

Day six, the rest of life appears
Every living land dweller created
Man made in His image as He prefers

With man in mind this world He designated
From His thoughts He worked a place for us
In six days His thoughtfulness cultivated 
On the seventh day to this God did bless
   ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapter 1. Key Verses 3-29.  Chapter 2 Key Verses 1-3 "Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made" (NKJV)

New "Words of Inspiration" Poem

 Fallen Countenance

The first crime against man became unveiled
Man's being declined to that unacceptable
As anger rose when Cain's countenance failed

From the ground Abel's blood wailed
For to this God was perceptible
The first crime against man became unveiled

Denial of his sacrifice, his heart detailed
Resentment gave to hate susceptible
As anger rose when Cain's countenance failed

Warned the sin of anger, it still prevailed
As jealousy took hold expressible
The first crime against man became unveiled

To this the results, a life curtailed
For him the punishment imperceptible
As anger rose when Cain's countenance failed

Denial of offering, action assailed
When to Cain this not acceptable
The first crime against man became unveiled
As anger rose when Cain's countenance failed
   ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapter 4. Key Verses 3-5 "And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry and his countenance fell" (NKJV). Verse 7-8 "If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it. Now Cain talked with Abel his brother, and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him" (NKJV). Verse 10-11 "And He said, what have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground. So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened it mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand" (NKJV).

A Poem for The Season

  Christmas of Strange

This year Christmas season has change
Due this ongoing virus event
Making for us a Christmas of strange

Barely seeing any bright lights arrange
As people's spirit is past bent
For this year Christmas season has change

We've had a year of life rearrange
Now hard in this season to be content
Making for us a Christmas of strange

Some do forget what Christmas represents
For it's not about gifts nor the displays
But the birth of Christ that Christmas presents

It's to this our spirit should be ablaze
No matter how strange this world gets
As we try to open our hearts to praise

This season we observe as life permits
Although this year Christmas season has change
The spirit of Christmas Joy He transmits
In making for us a Christmas not strange
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: "Then the angle said to them, Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring good tidings of great joy will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angle a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" (Luke 2:10-14. NKJV). 

Merry Christmas and Be safe!

A Poem For Thought

 Everything Good

This I've known and do understand
It's not a mystery, nor hard to know
Most times It's to the Lord of everything good

And to this give thought, if one would
Sometimes satan makes good to his will show
This I've known and do understand

One needs to pay attention as one should
To the circumstances that are bestow
Most times it's to the Lord of everything good

But to good give praise where praise deserved
As one should know satan is full of tricks
And to trickery no praise be served

If with good the Lord is in the mix
It's clear then to Him is praise to be
For in these times righteousness depicts

Good not always clear to what you see
This I've always known and understood
When good is from above one can agree
These times it's to the Lord of everything good
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Many times when good happens we can misunderstand to where it came. I know I have at times. I have and are learning to be careful to whom giving thanks when good happens and do try to understand the circumstances of the event. For instance; winning the lottery. Well, that's gambling, not very Christian like. To say Thank You Lord, I believe would be a miscalculation. Why would the Lord approve or give one a winning ticket when let's face it, that's gambling? Again, Not Christian Like! Good does not always come from the Lord. Satan is a master at trickery and will even influence one into thinking his or her actions of wrong are okay by creating something good to come out of it just to trick one into continuing the wrongful act. Most good is from the Lord, because He is good. Just be aware of the circumstances and know the Lord is the creator of good, but in this world devilish influence can change to bad everything good.

A Poem For Thought

What's Important

Life; existence of endorsement
Living in position of reference
Significance of what's important

Self; life taking it's own warrant
Placing one's existence in reverence
Life; existence of endorsement

Others; your purpose absorbent
Extension of what is held of preference
Significance of what's important

Time; something that becomes out lived
When spent to that insignificant
One's duration vitally deprived

Important; of being significant
Where to life one gives of self
As others enter as a participant

Middle; togetherness being our-self
Life; existence of endorsement
Where to this becomes it-self
Significance to what's important
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Mine to yours, yours to mine. Give and take when vitally needed; but, the middle is where life meets the significance to what's important.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

  We love our family and friends, but spending Thanksgiving with them may make you want to unpack your boxing gloves as sometimes they can bring out the worse in us. No matter what the Thanksgiving situation, there probably will be some moments that you need to carefully navigate through. It's best to adopt the advice of Proverbs 21:23:

"Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles" (NKJV) 

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful” (Colossians 3:15. NKJV)

New "Words of Inspiration" Poem

 A Mate for Thee

As man stood in the garden with glee
God decided it's not good he be alone
He knew man needed a mate for thee

God brought all His creatures for man to see
But for man none comparable was shown
As man stood in the garden with glee

God caused man to rest to His decree
As He crafted a mate from man's bone
He knew man needed a mate for thee

Man awaking the mate was brought to him
Knowing she from he, he named her woman
As to this he proclaimed in a hymn

God joined them as was to His plan
The two are now one in flesh as mates
Although only one man as it began

Knowing what's needed to what He creates
As man stood in the garden with glee
God saw to man's increase this need dictates
For He knew man needed a mate for thee
    ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapters 2:18-25, Key Verse 2:18 “And the Lord God said, "it is not good that man should be alone; I will make a helper comparable to him". And Key Verse 2:23 "And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of man".  And Key Verse 2:24 "Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh" (NKJV)

New "Words of Inspiration" Poem

Promise He Keeps His Way

One can believe what He does say
Even when it seems impossible
To His promise He will keep His way

Although action taken due dismay
In the mist of this made possible
One can believe what He does say

When he heard His voice he did obey
But the voice of her made transposable
To His promise He will keep His way

Although the impossible one may wait
However in believing and following
One's faith made strong in one's fate

Then the impossible seen in honoring
The promise made in time of past
And to this one delights in wallowing

Because of one's obedience at last
As one believing what He does say
One stayed faithful and steadfast
And to this promise He will keep His way
    ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapters 12-18. Key Verses 12:1-3 "Now the Lord had said to Abram: "Get out of your country, From your family, And from your father's house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those that bless you, And I will curse those that curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed" (NKJV). Key Verses 15: 3-5 "Then Abram said, "Look you have given me no offspring, indeed one born in my house is my heir!" And behold, the word of the Lord came to him saying, "This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir." Then He brought him outside and said, "Look now toward heaven and count the stars if you are able to number them." And He said to him, "So shall your descendants be" (NKJV). Key Verses 16: 1-2 "Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. And she had an Egyptian maidservant whose name was Hagar. So Sari said to Abram, "See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her". And Abram heeded the voice of Sari"(NKJV). Abram now ninety-nine years old. Key Verses 17: 4-5 "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall you be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you father of many nations" (NKJV). And Sari, now called Sarah is well past childbearing age in her late 80's. Key Verses 18: 10 "And He said, " I will certainly return to you according to this time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son" (NKJV).

New "Words of Inspiration" Poem

One Language Done

In our distant past we spoke as one
Our language was all the same
And understanding was of everyone

But to this, high and mighty we overrun
Our thoughts of self did make claim
For in our distant past we spoke as one

Our place in growth to heaven was spun
In order to make for us a name
This was the understanding of everyone

Because our need for power had begun
God decided to put a stop to this fame
As in our distant past we spoke as one

So our language of same was done
To each a different language became
And so was understanding of no one

Now our language many as one undone
Where in our distant past we spoke as one
To our glory as one did shame
For this understanding is of everyone
   ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapter 11: 1-9. Key Verse 1: "Now the whole earth had one language and one speech" (NKJV). Key Verse 4: "And they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over the face of the whole earth" (NKJV). Key Verses 7-8: "Come let Us go down and there and confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech". So The Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city" (NKJV).
