Poem of Thought

 Loving the Unlovely Test

It sometimes can make one highly stressed
In one's being seeing the importance
Passing the loving the unlovely test

To this spiritual test one has confessed
One has only known it's unimportance
For it sometimes can make one highly stressed

Only with God to this one is blessed
To grow in this area past self-importance
Passing the loving the unlovely test

The unlovely enter one's life as purposed
A lesson in spiritual growth to be
In loving one another as proposed

As we all have faults unlovely to see
Life has given or made us that way
For the knowing to this most can agree

When the test is given to one this day
One needs not let it make one highly stressed
Because God will bless you as He does say
You passed the loving the unlovely test

Thoughts: We all have unlovely ways due life and life's situations. Many times these unlovely ways of one's self one can't help. It can be stressful and hard to love another due one's unlovely way. But, we are not supposed to judge and think one's self better than the other just because one may have matured spiritually past this fault in one's self. Consider: Galatians 6:1-3 "Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such as one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear on another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself". (NKJV). In living Christ-like we are supposed to give understanding and kindness when dealing with the unlovely. And above all, not to judge lest we be judged in our unlovely ways. Dealing with the unlovely in life will always be tested in one's spiritual walk in life. It's important to mature spiritually in passing the loving the unlovely test. 

Note: I know I can and do have some unlovely ways; some due character flaws and some due life situational flaws. If I have offended or caused anyone stress due this, please forgive me and please pray for my soul as I try to learn not to judge the unlovely in others; to instead love others.
