People say I'm: honest, idealistic, analytical and that I think differently. According to Myer-Briggs, I'm: ENFJ. That translates to: a personality type of (slight) Extrovert, iNtuitive, Feeling, and Judging. In describing myself: I'm an IT (Information Technology) geek that writes Christian poetry. Soooo, hopefully, both sides of my brain work. If that wasn't enough fun, I'm also a natural Maine-iac.

Poem: Prone to Error

Challenges in Life are meant to be,
assisting us to reach maturity.
For our reaction to circumstance
marks personal growth beyond luck and chance.
Proven is our ability to learn,
expanding mental constraints as hearts burn.
Walking in upright, godly perfection
complements Jehovah's desire for Man's compassion.
The lasting goal is surely not religious fervor,
but moving past our fallen state of being...
Prone to error.

A sentiment well worth remembering, Joseph. We soon learn that we can't do it in our own strength. Thank you so much for sharing ... Read More

Poem: Silent Words Are Useless

I’ve got my opinions as any other;
Hopefully, I’ll be clear and you’ll understand
that our silent words are useless –
For the trees will willingly clap their hands.

The one true God spoke into existence
the birds, fishes, plants, mammals, Earth
and all forms of life including...
Humble beginnings of Mankind's birth.

The sound of our individual voices
is something that God covets and enjoys;
He wants our unadulterated praise verbalized
with heartfelt, cheerful, and celebratory noise.

Our real outward expressions of faith
for acknowledging His holy ways
can only be accomplished via…
Sincere, loving and audible praise.

So open your mouth during Church worship
and praise Him without doubt!
For your silent words are useless -
Causing even the rocks… to cry out.

Poem: Immortality

Ahhh... Immortality.

 

After the death of my earthly flesh,

my spirit will fully embrace it.

For I'm truly made in my Creator's Image

and filled with His Divine presence.

How can anyone doubt...

The premise of my logic?

 

Ahhh... Immortality.

Poem: Only Your Adoration

The essence of God is within,
looking to spring forth in your life.
You have been greatly blessed,
but may be unable to recognize it.
Learn to die to selfish desire
and enable His Spirit to be activated.
All that God requests is your adoration.
Giving praise and singing hymns to Yaweh
means He has captured your heart –
Therefore, your love for Him is… Genuine.
