WORDS

I don’t think she meant to hurt me
I know this deep inside
But the feelings that I have in me
Are very hard to hide

Was she really trying to help me
Or was she trying to hurt?
Is what she said really true
Or something I deserved

I want to do what’s right and good
And if her words were true
Help me God to change them
To something you could use

Help me to apologize
And help me change to be
The person you created
Let others see you in me.

Comment on Words

Words are powerful. God created our world with words. Words can inspire or destroy.
They can heal or they can crush. The words I speak can leave a huge impact.

Once  they are said they can only be forgiven, not forgotten.

The tongue is a small thing but what amount of damage it can do.

Harsh words can  hurt a person more than physical pain.

I try to think before I speak. Sometimes it is better not to speak what is in your heart.

The Bible says

“I tell you on the day of judgement people will give

account for every careless word they speak, for by
your words you will be justified and by your words
you will be condemned”.
Matthew 12:36-38 (ESV)

That verse revealed to me the power and consequences of my words. Careless words
can condemn me? That makes me stop and think before I speak. I will be judged by
my words because it reveals the state of my heart. It was words that I spoke for salvation.
Words have a weighty influence in my eternal destiny
Let the words of my mouth and the
meditation of my heart be acceptable
in your sight, O Lord,
my rock and my redeemer
Psalm 19:14

One Question

ONE QUESTION

As I was watching Worship
I heard the preacher say
And now how can I help you
What’s on your heart today

If you had just one question
That you could ask the Lord
I came right to attention
That really struck a chord

What is it like in heaven?
Why did You make Adam?
Why did You make me?
Why did you let Satan
Overcome so easily?

What about the angels
Surely they get lonely
They’re not made in Your image
As You made me to be

What about eternity
It’s really hard to see
How it had no beginning
And the end will never be

So many hours I studied
And realized finally
Your Word has all the answers
I need in this journey

COMMENT ON ONE QUESTION

This one is a bit lighter then most of the poems,

While living in Belize I was listening to a
preacher from Puerto Rico. I always felt
light-hearted after his sermons.

He had a way of taking some of the parables
and seeing the irony and the humor in them.

This poem was inspired after hearing one of
his sermons.

The Word has given me answers and I am so
grateful for it.

Psalm 19:14
May these words of my mouth and this meditation
of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
