Growing Strong in The Lord Poem

 Your Journey Never Ends


When to your soul this world offends
Grab hold to the one that really cares
With the Lord your journey never ends

For with Him your cares does transcends
 Of that which caused your being great flares
When to your soul this world offends

As He will provide you that which defends
Making it possible your future He prepares
With the Lord your journey never ends

Take a breath move into the next level
As spiritual maturity takes your soul
Beyond this world's offensive dishevel

Keeping in mind the Lord has your goal
For He will lead you if you let Him
And will again make your soul whole

Your journeys not over when things seem grim
When to your soul this world offends
As then to your soul the bad is trim
For with the Lord your journey never ends

Thoughts: In this world the ways of a Christian can sometimes offend others; but especially the devil (Satan, the evil one,.....). And attacks make come from unexpected sources as that is the evil one's way. Many times the evil one uses others without them even knowing they are being used. One's emotions can run high in these situations. But greater is the Lord to help one move past and often that's when spiritual maturity to the next level of your soul can take place. As many times offense happens for a reason in helping one to his or her next level in spiritual maturity as with the Lord one's journey never ends. 

Growing Strong in the Lord Poem

 Rise Above


You can fly on angel wings free of
The burdens of life thats brought of evil
As the Lord helps you to rise above

Giving you peace bringing one out of
A dark place where in this world lives the devil
As you fly on angel wings free of

When others draw you in using your love
As their soul known to love is deceitful
The Lord will help you rise above

For some compassion their soul is cold to
Where their heart is filled with black coals
No worries to their soul comes what is due

Be brave and strong remember who controls
Our lives no matter if one be in Christ
Believe or not this world Christ patrols

When attacks do come and your soul's been priced
You can fly above on angel wings free of
Knowing your soul belongs to God sufficed
As the Lord helps you to rise above

Thoughts: Sometimes as Christians we get attack by non-believers or bad people as many have no compassion for others. It can be hard when to them yourself is given in love. As we are supposed to love one another, but many use love to hurt others. No worries and no need to seek revenge as that would not be what the Lord wants of a true Christian. You need not do anything except know and pray for their soul. Every soul is worth saving; but it's their decision to make. For we have a mighty and vengeful God who will fight for us. Not that we are better, no not by far, just owned through the blood of Jesus and that's powerful. The raft of God is not to be messed with when you have hurt one of His. He will help His fly on angel wings and to rise above.

Growing Strong in The Lord Poem

 God Says


When life has you feeling amiss
Into prayer you seek His guidance
And God says quit worrying I got this

In life you sometimes want to dismiss
Secluding yourself in silence
When life has you feeling amiss

Then in prayer to you God gives a kiss
Letting you know it be Him your reliance
And God says quit worrying I got this

No matter how shaken your past has been
And how close to crazy you have come
He will guide your being with a grin

Trust in Him as He brought you here from
A dark place where your being did die
Helping you once again be alive and welcome

No matter in what condition your soul does cry
When life has you feeling amiss
With Him your soul can rise up high
As God says quit worrying I got this
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Life can beat one's soul to a place of barley being alive. Particularly when one's life has been an extremely hard road traveled. In these cases one does come so close to total craziness. I know, I've been there, but my reliance is on God in knowing no matter how broken my soul that He is by my side to help me rise above and to feel alive again as God says quit worrying I got this.

Growing Strong Part 2 Poem

 Matters of Life


Life can cut you in your soul like a knife
That molds your being into who you are
Helps in knowing its only matters of life

Sometimes we look for answers when there's strife
As to your soul you bare life's scar
Life can cut you in your soul like a knife

Accepting self then comes as love of life
Awaking of being that your not bizarre
Helps in knowing its only matters of life

We all have life challenges to sort
To different your being a blazing 
So don't stress in selling yourself short

Be you for to God your soul amazing
When to life the deep cut has left you guessing
For to Him you belong in praising

To your life there's no sense in stressing
When life does cut your soul like a knife
Knowing God's waiting to give you His blessing
In knowing it's only matters of life
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: We can get stressed in life; in particular in trying to understand who you are and why you are like you are. Sometimes things happen the way they do for a reason and trying to reason this can bring one to the realization that you are different; and that's okay because God's loves you as you are when to life the scars are deep in your soul. Life can also lead us to an unfamiliar path that can sometimes be hard to navigate; thus challenging. But we all have challenges in life and in knowing this, remember it's only matters of life.

Growing Strong Part 2 Poem

 Who You Where Meant To Be


When in this world your being wants to flee
As others don't understand who you are
Just be who you where meant to be

Even when not accepted as thee
For a challenge to them bizarre
Then in this world your being wants to flee

Don't loose hope for to you God does see
And to Him your being becomes a star
In being who you where meant to be

Gaining strength you realize its Him you need
Not the strength of others who are weak 
As their approval is given in greed

As to yourself your ways unique
Others may try and make you what your not
Thinking of themselves their ways you seek

Alive and well to your ways of thought
When in this world your being wants to flee
Don't give in to the of the world you fought
Just be who you where meant to be
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: More often than not people have a tendency to think because they are okay, alive, and well in their ways that others will be too. Often they will try to tell one how to be to make them happy as well; when many times that person is just fine and happy as they are. Just because one does not partake in activities that others do does not mean one is unhappy in not doing so. Just maybe they are happy as the meek and calm person they where meant to be. Everyone isn't happy to be partakers of worldly activities and one forcing or pushing them out of their comfort zone will more than likely make them unhappy. If you feel out of place in this world, no worries, your not alone. As Christians more often than not you are supposed to feel out of place in this world; that's a good and unique thing. If it makes you happy to be drama free from worldly things then do so and just be who you where meant to be. 

Growing Strong in The Lord Part 2 Poem

 He Has Our Future Plans


Trying to put our future in our hands
We sometimes force what may not meant to be
But we must know He has our future plans

Responsive to what becomes by mans
We give into what others want to see
Trying to put our future in our hands

Forgetting how far God's hand spans
We loose faith He gives His best to thee
But we must know He has our future plans

A child of God we learn in Him to trust
We must not force our future to sooner
Eventual ours be with Him a must

Relaxing not to become a ruiner
For His plans to ours is greater
He prepares us as He be a pruner

When we hurry in hope to straighter
Trying to put our future in our hands
We often forget who is our creator
As we must learn He has our future plans
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Sometimes we can be in such a hurry for what we think is best for our future; forgetting our creator knows us better than we know our selves. And sometimes in the act of this we can loose our own self and our faith in Him to know what's best for us. We can additional act on this thought in a way that actually pulls us away from God. Believe that He will prune you and show you where and how you do and don't belong as one try's to force their own future into existence. What you may think is best for you may prove not to be. It's best to just relax and let God guide you into your future; it will be must greater than you dreamed. Always remember in trying to force your hand at your own future you may end up in the worst place possible because He already has plans for our best future. 

Growing Strong in The Lord Part 2 Poem

 Modern Love


It comes and goes as a fly away dove
Never the heart and soul be touched
In this world where there be modern love

Where devotion gives way to self free of
And the strain on one's heart then untouched
It comes and goes as a fly away dove

Forgetting it was first sent from above
Not realizing to the soul it is clutched
In this world where there be modern love

It's old as the world its day created
For out of love God gave us this place
As deep down in our heart and soul its fated

But we let it go without a trace
To the cold that lies outside our being
Where to surface the things we embrace

For of the world our flesh is seeing
It comes and goes as a fly away dove
As to our heart and soul this is freeing
In this world where there be modern love
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Love is not a modern thing. It has been around since creation and before. But in our world today love has taken on a new meaning as a cold and surface focused thing. It's ashamed that because of our modern times people forgot what real love is all about. It is supposed to be a thing of the heart and soul, not about how good someone looks or about giving of one's self in a sexual manner. But so many mistaken this kind of attention or affection as love because it eases them of the devotion and care that comes from deep down that real love is about in our world where there be modern love.

Growing Strong in The Lord. Part 2 Poem

 Once in Awhile


Our rewards can be blind and mild
Especially when to it the road was hard
But life can surprise you once in awhile

As others to you had been hostile
To this your heart became closed and charred
As rewards can sometimes be blind and mild

Then one enters that greatly makes you smile
For you thought that no one even cared
But life can surprise you once in awhile

As you give praise to God above
Your heart slowly opens again in thanks
This person has taught you again of love

Pain of past slowly melts as you relax
A friend indeed was all you needed
To help you see through the past attacks

The warmth and love of care is then seeded
For rewards can sometimes be blind and mild
The one sent from God above succeeded
Because life surprises you one in awhile
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Life can be really harsh and hard for many. I know mine had been and did not see that any one even cared, at one point. Although I knew God did,  I needed a human to show care; as well. Being a friend to a hurting person may very well be their saving grace in showing love to others and in loving life again. Always try to have compassion for others as we are here to love one another. Remember this and give a hurting person a hand in friendship. It may be a challenge but worth the reward and very well may be a surprise in their life they have not had in awhile.

A Poem of Thanks

 You Put a Smile on My Face, Thank you


Was a feeling that was gave in grace
As you touched my heart with your awesome love
You gave me joy with a smile on my face

You lifted me high above this place
Made me want to fly like a dove
Was a feeling that was gave in grace

As I greatly felt your warm embrace
That came down from the great above
You gave me joy with a smile on my face

Was uncontrollable that made me drunk
As the laughter enveloped me non-stop
Still wobbly after the lift shrunk

Then back to reality my spirit did drop
As the after effect left me aglow
Your touch to me no human can top

This was from you my Lord, I know
Was a feeling that was gave in grace
I thank you Lord as your love does show
You gave me joy with a smile on my face
       ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: If you have ever been touched by God then you would know His touch well. He does touch us in ways a human never can. And His touch exceeds everything and leaves you knowing He cares and loves you. I greatly thank Him for this as it is given in grace. What is so awesome is He seems to give it to you when you need it most. His touch leaves a smile on you face!

Another Poem for Thought

 Comes at a Cost


When it seems to you something was lost
This thing you held onto that made you, you
Spiritual maturity comes at a cost

In faith you gave it not to be tossed
Precious to you as others had no clue
When it seems to you something was lost

Expectancy to exclusivity crossed
To this where one's being greatly grew
Spiritual maturity comes at a cost

No promises made to your being was made
Thou hard when that part of you did exist
Harder to move past when to this it fade

Your spirit then only wants it missed
Into prayer your soul does beckon
Where this part of you the Lord has kissed

Making you no less to Him or second
When it seems to you something was lost
Moving on to say to self I reckon
As spiritual maturity comes at a cost
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Sometimes we hold onto a part of us that prevents us from spiritually growing. As we have engrained into our own thoughts that part of us is what makes us righteous in God's eyes and acceptable to others. When that part of us may just need to be trimmed off in order to mature in becoming the Christian He wants us to be. We must not think ourselves so righteous that we place ourselves on a thrown; expecting to be treated as a kings or queens by others in holding onto a part of us that we may only see as precious. Although it seems like loosing a precious piece of yourself, the reward in spiritual growth may well exceed this cost because sometimes spiritual maturity comes at a cost.  

A Poem of Thought

  Real Too Intense for Some


When giving to where one's real does come
For some to this hard to believe is true
Discovery of real too intense for some

To many a game in play to welcome
The few of real that never knew
When giving to where one's real does come

Excitement fuels their game of where they're from
That fizzles when to real it grew
Discovery of real too intense for some

Seen as boring when the game's not played
In sticking to one's faith to this one's way
When to real the foundation was laid

Standing firm to one's realness hard today
Because some see this too intense to deal
In silence one becomes known to their way

Their hearts are closed to that to feel
When giving to where one's real does come
One then does relax in God for zeal
Discovery of real too intense for some
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Many people play games these days in portraying un-realness because being real seems too intense for them. Many of these people get bored with real as they themselves would rather play than be real to the other. Of course real is intense because it's not fake nor a game in play. Am believing it takes a real man or women to recognize and appreciate one that is real. And takes one that is real in dealing with the intensity of real. In being real if you find yourself being denied or cast aside, don't sweat it, just continue to be real to yourself and in God's eyes. Sooner or later one will come along that appreciates the intensity of your realness because in a world of fake or pretend real can be too intense for some.
