Spiritual Thoughts

Recommended Posts

Turtletwo asked me to post some of my poetry.   I also have written some spiritual thoughts and devotionals, so thought I would post some of those, too.  I have more of those than of poems.

 

All Things to God, by Debp

I cannot be all things to people,

I must be all things to God...

And God all things to me.

Only then can I be

What God would have me to be...

To others and myself.

Thanks! Those thoughts have led me to this morning's brief look ups and short study and to  pondering Paul's message to the church members at Corinth.  1 Corinthians 9

1 Corinthians 15

 

Thanks again hope you will be led to share more of your personal works.

There is a very real and important truth here that once learned by experience is life changing. 

The “all” of God and the “nothing” of us. 

A quite real poem. Thanks for sharing it!

Much love in Christ, Not me

:th_wave: Hi, sis. So happy you took my suggestion and posted one of your poems! I love it. It deals with an important truth in a direct and wonderful manner. It comes from the heart. I can see that this is something God revealed to you. It is a truth we all must see (as well as practice) at some point in our Christian walk. Sooner is better. :) Thanks for sharing it!

I look forward to others. Also, the spiritual thoughts and devotionals!

I'm glad all of you enjoyed the poem!   Will add more things slowly. :heart:

Looking Unto Jesus, by Debp

No matter what happens in life...keep trusting and looking to Jesus.  He will get us through the trials.  If we get our eyes on the trials, then those will be the only type of things we see in life, and our lives can then become quite sad or only negative.   The trials will pass...keep looking to Jesus.

Forgiveness, by Debp

Forgiveness...it really does change our hearts and also can help when a situation might come to mind.  Instead of feeling badly about what happened, we think "Oh Lord, I forgive him/her"...and I find that does help to take the sting out of the matter.

Draw Away, by Debp

Draw Away unto a

quiet place to pray.

Battered by the noise of life,

seek God as your refuge.

He will restore your soul,

and make you whole again.

A heart after Christ is such a precious thing. It show in your poems. Thanks for putting a smile on my face. :)

Righteousness, by Debp

To do right without compulsion... isn't that a most wonderful state to be in?  As God has ministered to us, we minister to others, sincerely, from our hearts.

 

Suffering, by Debp

After the suffering is past, we often see the hand of God, how He worked it all out for our good.

Help Me to See, by Debp

Lord, reveal my blindness

to me,

and as I acknowledge

my failure to see,

more of Yourself

reveal to me.

Help me, Lord, to acknowledge You

in everything that I say and do.

For it's only by Your Spirit

that Your power will descend,

drawing hearts and minds to unity,

lest any should offend.

And it's only by acknowledging

Your power and my need,

and in humbly seeking

Your presence in my life,

that I can live the life You give,

and help others find the Christ.

      Feel free to add your poems.

       
      (Sorry, it was  unreadable, here it is below without the graphic)

           A Breath Away,
      From Life
      to death,
      A sigh and then a bye, no fragility could have handled it carefully enough,
      But a rope was given ...one hand clenched another embraced,
      One too short the other everlasting.
      While the train whistle faded
      eternity etched it's infinite imprint.

      Does anyone know of any really good devotionals for couples or online devotionals.  I think devotionals are a great way to stay on the right path as long as they are Biblical rooted.  Not that much of a fan of all the purely inspirational stuff even though it has its place.  I look forward to your assistance.

      I love praising Father God with the talents and gifts He gave me. One of them is writing poems. I write in my trials and tribulations, I write on the Love of Father God, I write on the person I was, before I met Him.

      I have a few I would really love to share with you all, but I'll post one at a time as Father God wants me to.

      Here is my index, if someone would like to ask me for one:
      Come to Me
      He is jealous for Me
      I'll never let you go (this one I personally wrote the day Jesus made His abode in me)
      Perfect Child
      Darknight Season

      The Fight
      The Light of Your Face
      The Makers Hand (one of my fav's)
      The Presence of God (to be continued)
      and Unfathomable Love

      Today I'm post in one of my Favourites - The Makers Hand.

      The Makers Hand

      ‘Twas battered, scarred and looked warn out
      The auctioneers thoughts of worth was in doubt

      The crowd gave the old violin one glance with a crooked smile
      To stop and give it a chance wasn’t worth their while

      “Waste of time this old thing” someone shouts from the crowd
      While they were pointing and laughing with pleasure out loud

      Then from the room, far back, a brown bearded Man
      Came forward and picked up the old violin, holding it in His hand

      Wiping the dust and tightening up the stings
      He started playing a melody as pure as the angels sings

      He closed His eyes, with pleasure His ears received the sound
      Thinking a better violin He never could have found

      The audience broke out in clapping, leading into cheers
      And some even cried, wiping away a few tears

      Saying: “What changed its worth, we don’t understand”
      “It’s simple” He replied. “It only needs the touch of its Makers Hands”

      You see, I can perfectly remember the day I created this masterpiece
      And I also know the day its last note will play and its music finally will cease

      Many a man, all battered and bruised by sin
      Auctioned cheap to a thoughtless crowd like this old violin

      But the Maker always passes by, on the lookout for His lost creation
      That needs dusting, tightening of strings, with a touch of love and appreciation

      Just like the blind man, hearing his Makers footsteps at the side of the road
      Jesus already knew everything about him and his unbearable load

      With loving hands, he gently felt Jesus touch his face
      Oh when was the last time someone held him in a warm embrace

      “I know you need Me, I have heard your crying plea
      There there, I am here now, I have come to set you free”

      And that brings us to the fact, that we will never be able to quite understand
      The change that is wrought, by the touch of the Makers Hand


      Blessings in our Lord Jesus Christ
