New "Words of Inspiration" Poem

 Identity of Self is The Lords


For he was told to sever his cords
To leave security and familiar place
Where identity of self is the Lords

He moved to where the Lord affords
Leaving inheritance to be displace
For he was told to sever his cords

God gave promise to this awards
Many descendants and land to embrace
Where identity of self is the Lords

His connection to God, filling this void
As the only deity he would need
Cultural traditions he did avoid

For with this separation he is freed
And given in leadership a nation
A promise in obedience God decreed 

All the earth blessed in this migration
For he was told to sever his cords
Having faith in the Lord for duration
Where identity of self is the Lords

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapter 12:1-9. Key Verses 1-3 "Now the Lord had said to Abram; "Get out of your country, From your family And 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 him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed" (NKJV). Verse 7 "Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, "To your descendants I will give this land" (NKJV).

"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).
