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).

Third Poem From "Words of Inspiration"

A Second Chance

Man's evil God saw at a glance 
But to this one had found His grace
Where to all men given a second chance

God grieved His creation in this place
As wickedness man's heart displayed
But God plan a salvation to embrace 

For His few chosen to not be afraid
When to His regret flood waters ascend
As two-by-two in the ark they stayed

For 40 days for others the waters condemned
To the few righteous safety He gave
A future on them humanity did depend

Then to this God remembered and did save
As land appeared gave command to grow
In the new land man's domain made brave

A covenant displayed of a rainbow
Although man's evil God saw at a glance
Humanity He saved this place bestow
Where to all men given a second chance
   ©Doris Elaine


Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapters 6:1-9:14. Key Verses 6:5-8 "Then the Lord saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, 'I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them'. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord" (NKJV). Verses 6:17-18 "And behold, I myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. But I will establish My covenant with you, and you shall go into the ark-you, your sons, your wife, and your son's wife with you.  (NKJV).Verse 8:1 "Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that where in the ark. And God made a wind pass over the earth, and the waters subsided (NKJV). Verse 8:6 "So it came to pass, at the end of forty days, Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made" (NKJV). Verses 8: 15-17 "Then God spoke to Noah, saying, 'Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your son's wives with you. Bring out every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, so that they may abound on earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth'" (NKJV). Verses 9: 12-14 "And God said: 'This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud;  will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh" (NKJV).

Second Poem from "Words of Inspiration"

Learned Temptation

From the womb to the ground we now return
When to the serpent we was deceived
As in temptation we fell and did learn

Now to this our struggle we did earn
For our creator was greatly aggrieved
From the womb to the ground we now return

As paradise He gave us we overturn
Eyes opened to knowledge we now received
As in temptation we fell and did learn

This our history with Him concern
As to the other our choice perceived
From the womb to the ground we now return

Bruised in mind we must now stand stern
So foot to heal our walk be achieved
As in temptation we fell and did learn

For now with knowledge we must discern
To whom our alliance be reprieved
From the womb to the grown we now return
As in temptation we fell and did learn
   ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapter 3, Key Verses 4-7"Then the serpent said to the woman, 'you shall not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil'. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of it's fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them where opened, they knew they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made them coverings" (NKJV). & 11 "And He said, 'Who told you that you are naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?'" (NKJV). Personal comment: In reading on you will see in answering God, the woman blamed the serpent, the man blamed the woman and the Lord punished all three; ending with the man. Verse 17b-19 "Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, And you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return" (NKJV).

First Poem From "Words of Inspiration"

A Wonderful Place

To be here we live in His grace
For us this He made for our comfort
In the beginning a wonderful place

As with light the void He did embrace
Giving it all in six days His effort
For to be here we live in His grace

Making our welfare as His to face
In His breath to our life He exhort
In the beginning a wonderful place

Teaming with life to abundance He made
A garden beautiful to man's amaze
Out of part of man brought woman to aid

In this He saw promise as He praise
How wonderfully beautiful His creation
He gave to man to live out his days

Comfort to man was the foundation
As to be here we live in His grace
For to God what He saw was elation
In the beginning a wonderful place 
   ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapters 1-2, Key Verses 1:31 “Then God saw everything He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day" (NKJV). 2:18 “And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him’” (NKJV).

A Foretelling Poem for Thought

Here a poem inspired via the reading of Genesis for thought.

He was from the beginning

To this one can't stop grinning
As Genesis 3:15 tells of Him
To know He was from the beginning

For her seed be Him in winning
Gave His life, fear of death then slim
To this one can't stop grinning

Although Jesus heel bruised pinning
Was Satan's power bruised and grim
To know He was from the beginning

Galatians 4:4-5 tells His story
As was the foretelling made known
From the beginning His glory

As He suffered temptation grown
But for us as Hebrews 2:14-18 shows
The power of fear of death now blown

For He is and was as one knows
To this one can't stop grinning
Revelation 1:18 brings this to a close
To know He was from the beginning
   ©Doris Elaine

Inspiration: Genesis 3:15 "And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel" (NKJV). References: "her Seed" Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:4-5). "he shall bruise your head" Satan's power over man's fear of death and bondage through sin through His (Jesus) victory over the grave (Hebrews 2:14-18). "you shall bruise his heel" less fatal blow Satan dealt to Jesus through His crucifixion.  He is and was from the beginning (Revelation 1:18).

A Poem for Thought

Free At Last

Burdens arise that’s hard to get past
One learns not to let it weigh you down
To let go of it to be free at last

Sometimes the journey of life can downcast
Affecting one’s spirit, making one frown 
When burdens arise that’s hard to get past

Hard as to you this thing was vast
And even thou in it you did drown 
You let go of it to be free at last

To God you learned for help and asked
For with Him your spirit renown
As burdens arise that’s hard to get past

No matter, to Him your never outcast
As He leads you straight without letdown 
In letting go of it to be free at last

Hanging onto burdens time can go fast
When burdens arise that’s hard to get past 
One turns to God in Him your fears you cast
As you let go of it to be free at last
   ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Sometimes we can get so caught up in something that it becomes a huge burden that can become a hindrance in our spiritual growth. I know, I’ve done just that. Before you know it, from being so wrapped up in it, time has gone by really fast. We do have to go through to get to; but it best to recognize a burden/hinderance in one’s spiritual maturity and let go of it. If a burden is keeping you from getting to where God needs you it’s best to let go of it. In the outcome of letting go, you will feel and become free at last.

New “I Am Sowed” Poem

New Poem "Chosen Learning", find under "I Am Sowed" tab. 

A Poem for Thought

I Cry!

Often babies born with defects
Then the parents want to put blame
As each other's fault in directs
Out of this builds shame
I Cry!

A child in school gets rejects
Due being different, not the same
As most others pretends and reflects
Because the child doesn't play the game
I Cry!

A teenager cast aside, others inspects
To their mistakes as to proclaim
As not worthy to societal aspects
To this worthiness then disclaim
I Cry! 

A single parent as life affects
This unknown as it became
Others to them giving no respect
As in this struggle their life inflame
I Cry!

A foreigner to a new country expects
A place as one that overcame
A life anew as others suspects
To here to what be the aim
I Cry!

To science given to all intellects
Announcing to revolving be our frame
As thought of creation given rejects
Wondering now, to what be our endgame
I Cry; for, all Humanity!
  ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: This poem pretty much speaks for it's self. But here my thoughts:

Bottom line, humanity is getting worse, seems now, by the day. Have we forgotten respect, where did it go? Have we forgotten how to treat each other? Under the eyes of God we are created equal, no matter! "Have we not one Father? Has not one God created us? Why do we treacherously deal with one another" (MAL 2:10. NKJV). And this thing about we having been evolved in believing that simply because we can't scientifically prove creation, a higher being having created us. But, wait, there are many things science has proven that could have only been created by a higher being. Not getting into all that; just check it out, you'd be surprised at these scientific facts if one needs to get scientific."For by Him all things were created in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him" (COL 1:16. NKJV).  I believe we are all created equal by a living higher being, God, and Jesus Christ as the Son of God who deemed everyone on the face of the earth as equal. No one is perfect, but we are made stronger in Christ. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 COL 12:9. NKJV). What are we doing? Where is humanity heading? Again, I Cry for all Humanity!

Please Pray

I’m asking everyone to pray some time this day. Pray for those infected with this virus. Pray for deaths to stop. Pray for help of those countries deeply affected. Pray for this thing to be extinguished from the face of the earth. Pray for our hearts to open in helping each other through this world wide crisis.

Please God hear our cry, the cry of your creation needs you.

Please all who know prayer makes a difference, bow your heads, clasp your hands, kneel, if only silently pray this day.

Let’s sincerely pray everyone. Prayer does work!
God bless!

Biblical Encouragement

Psalm 91 (NKJV) 
Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God
    1. He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
              Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty
    1. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and fortress;
               My God, in Him I will trust.”
    1. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
              And from the perilous pestilence.
    1. He shall cover you with His feathers,
              And under His wings you shall take refuge

              His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
    1. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
               Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
    1. Nor of the pestilence that walks in the darkness,
              Nor of the destruction that lays waste by noonday.
    1. A thousand may fall at your side,
              And ten thousand at your right hand;

              But it will not come near you.
    1. Only with your eyes shall you look,
               And see the reward of the wicked.
    1. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
              Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
    1. No evil shall befall you,
               Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
    1. For He shall give His angels charge over you,
              To keep you in all your ways,
    1. In their hands they shall bear you up,
               Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
    1. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
               The young lion and the serpent you shall trample under foot.
    1. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
               I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
    1. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
               I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
    1. With long life I will satisfy Him, and show him My salvation.

    It is hard times for everyone. If you have a loved one affected by this outbreak, it's important to be strong for them and try not to panic; but give them hope. Had a scare myself of a family member, but turns out it was just allergies and had to be strong for her just in case it was the virus. That too, many right now are suffering with allergies and best to understand this in not panicking. Everyone just use precautions and try not to panic; and above all be strong, have faith and pray. Prayer does work!

    A Poem for Thought

    A Breath of Awakening

    One must know to this understanding
    In a crisis be a breath of awakening
    As to us in knowing He is outstanding
    For with His breath He is beckoning
    To this virus outbreak He is advancing
    Need for Him those that are wavering
    Giving understanding to those granting
    If in passing to home one is favoring
    As for panicking one needs rationing
    In knowing to your life He is handling
    So why all the anxiety that standing
    For in this crisis a breath of awakening
       ©Doris Elaine

    Thoughts: There is so much panic in this Coronavirus outbreak. Some fail to realize God is in charge of our very life for those that allow Him to be your Lord and savior. In understanding and knowing this, there is no need for panic. For if you pass in this crisis you are headed home. And, He will keep you here if He needs you here. Two Bible passages that may help: "Arise, shine, For your light come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you" (Ish. 60:1. NKJV) and "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light" (Esp. 5:14. NKJV). Have faith, try not to panic; believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God and our savior in this breath of awakening.

    A Poem of Thought-Special

    The Novel Corona virus outbreak is world wide now and hitting just about every where. Courage and faith is greatly needed and prays for everyone. It is important to keep one's faith in these times of affliction and remember The Lord IS your strength and your faith. Never give up on your faith in the Lord. Have courage and pray, He is with us all. 

    (Originally posted on "I Am Sowed")

    Faithful in Affliction

    Health issues can test one's conviction
    Especially when they suddenly befall
    Best to stay faithful in affliction

    The devil does promote contradiction
    In life trying to create a downfall
    Because health issues test one's conviction

    Don't loose faith in this made friction
    As depression aims at your free fall
    It's best to stay faithful in affliction

    Standing firm you give the devil an eviction
    In knowing the Lord on Him you do call
    When health issues test one's conviction

    Sometimes one's health promotes restriction
    In causing one's faith to greatly stall
    Always best to stay faithful in affliction

    In this He gave life due His crucifixion
    As He suffered in health above all
    Sometimes health issues test one's conviction
    Always best to remain faithful in affliction
       ©Doris Elaine

    Thoughts: It's hard to remain faithful when one is suddenly afflicted with health issues that may affect one the rest of your life; such as, cancer, blood viruses, or many other health issues. God, the Lord does not punish, but He allows in testing of one's faith. He is a just God. Sometimes things happen for a reason and although we may not be able to reason why, there is a reason in His plan for your life. As you can see in the book of Job in the Bible. He was tested through the Lord allowing the devil to afflict Job in many ways; but, Job never gave up his faith. When afflicted with health issues, that's when you need the Lord the most. He will see you through; have faith.  It's always best to stay faithful and not give up your faith in the Lord, when afflicted with health issues. "above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one" (Esp. 6:16. NKJV).

    A Poem of Thought

    Work-Place Politics

    Some things just can't be fix
    It's everywhere and getting worse
    It's called work-place politics

    As in some churches, at work there's clicks
    Where those alike do greatly converse
    As some things just can't be fix

    No matter, there's always favorite picks
    While others treated greatly adverse
    We call it work-place politics

    One wonders why your in this place
    And realize to this your spirit grows
    As the Lord in you shines with grace

    For of your struggle He greatly knows
    And for some reason He has you there
    You pray as His strength to you bestows

    Though the treatment doesn't seem fair
    Some things you just can't fix
    But with the Lord, He helps you bare
    To be this place of work-place politics
       ©Doris Elaine

    Thoughts: There's always workplace politics no matter where you work or what your job is. Favorites are always played, while other get treated otherwise. Some get higher pay, get special privileges, and others treated as insignificant. Work performance should matter, but today, it seems to be more about conformity. Either you go along with or you get treated badly. Being a Christian in a place where you may be the only one, or the only one taking your belief seriously and not conforming to the ways of others that promote worldly cause is hard. But one should never give up your faith because of work place politics. It may be that the Lord has you in a dark workplace to be a light. Or/and, it may be He has you there for a test or as a lesson in spiritual growth that would benefit you and others. Pray, He will give you strength, show you your purpose for being there, and know you are there for a reason in this place of work-place politics.
