Giving Tithes to God

DownUp 0

Revelations of the heart
regarding how one’s money is spent
echoes volumes about character
and our God-given talents.

For Jehovah is far from being poor;
He owns the cattle on a thousand hills.
He’s not into ungodly extortion
to keep you from paying your bills.

By serving two masters,
one will be dearly loved – the other sorely hated;
so one can never be truly happy
until settling the God and Mammon debate.

The wealth of God lies in His Word.
His principle of tithing is a mechanism
to pour out financial blessings upon us.
Therefore, purge your mindset of secularism.

Jehovah desires our faithfulness
to fulfill our ministry to the Earth.
We won’t be judged on our daily income –
Know that money can never define… Our true worth.

For Just One Day

DownUp 0

For just one day, I’d like to see
a tour of God’s throne room and His glassy sea.
Or perhaps to take a leisurely stroll
among heavenly streets made from purest gold.
Maybe I’d glimpse the pearly gates,
to find out who is really standing in wait.
Another option would be to find
the stately mansion that’s eventually mine.
But seeing the Savior from afar
and observing the glory of the Morning Star,
would focus my attention solely on Him
and stir my spirit to sing eternal hymns.
For just one day, I’d like a peek of Paradise –
For carrying those images would surely suffice.

Silent Words Are Useless

DownUp 0

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.

Silent Tears

DownUp -2

To willingly lay down one’s life
for the redemption of all others
is an immeasurable sacrifice.
More painful than His Suffering
were the silent tears
that stained the Savior’s cheeks
in memoriam
of those who rejected Him.

Violet Muwanguzi

DownUp +4

As a delicate flower,
you bring beauty to a barren garden
with your wondrous smile.
Despite the harsh winds of Life,
you are firmly planted in God’s hands
and stand upright in strength.
Your tenderness will always be evident;
avoid those who would look
to trample you under foot.
Let Jehovah’s spiritual principles
blossom fully in your life –
Be a blessing to others
and reflect the brillance of His Light.

Author’s Note:

This piece was written for a contest, sponsored on the behalf of Uguandan orphans. Many children have lost their parents to the HIV/AIDS virus, including Violet. This particular event was partnered with showmercy.org to get personalized poems, a blanket and a stuffed animal to each child in need. We are all God’s children; please visit showmercy.org and show some love.

Prayer Scented Incense

DownUp 0

Do you realize?

After birthing heart-felt prayers,
have you seen them rise as sweet perfume?
For their glorious scent fills God’s nostrils
as His Presence consumes Heaven’s throne room.

Do you know?

Our Father covets this sacred incense,
that burns in the cries of His Children.
He is forever mindful of us
and our continuing battle for overcoming sin.

Do you want answers?

Christ Himself hears our pleas directly –
No phone operators are standing by.
He desires daily conversations with us
until the day when… we join Him on high.

Spoken Word

DownUp 0

Being unable to participate
during the worship service
is a poor spiritual sign.

Unwillingness to offer praise,
while standing in His Presence,
shows a deficient of new wine.

For the obvious silence
reveals an apparent lack of Faith
and failure to know God’s design.

A desire of heavenly passion
cannot resonate from within,
when not letting your love for Him to shine.

For the true strength of one’s belief
is confirmed only by the spoken Word –
Provided it’s not diluted with some earthly whine.

The tongue, always will unwittingly confess,
the secrets of our hearts, to see if…
One is actually striving for the Lord divine.

Author Notes:

The phrase “a deficient of new wine” is not a reference to the alcoholic product. It is regarding the “spiritual wine”, which is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

When we are intentionally sinning, the presence of God leaves us, hence the deficient state.

It should also be noted, that there are moments during the “worship service” where we should not be silent. When participating in the “song service”, the singing of praises to Him should be vocalized – hence, the “spoken word”.

For Upon My Head, Nothing Gold Can Stay

DownUp +2

Standing at the threshold
of Death’s ultimate door,
my last gasp escapes me…
As I’ve never experienced before.

Into the Heavenly realm
I ascend in wonderment,
now housed in an incorruptible body
and thankful that from sin I did repent.

Standing in God’s throne room
freed of all Earthly flesh,
my spiritual essence is energized
and feeling fully refreshed.

Now gathered unto my Savior,
unencumbered reality is more than it seems;
for to be in His Presence
is my accomplished dream.

Having been given my kingly reward,
in these times of everlasting days,
willfully I set my crown at His feet.
For upon my head, nothing gold can stay.

Enjoy This Season

DownUp 0

Withering grass of this season
with your abundance of green,
take advantage of Today –
Contribute to this Earthly scene.

Enjoy your present strength;
ignore worries of the past.
Let the distant failures fade
and let sweeter memories last.

Be true to yourself always,
standing tall and strong.
Focus on your own meadows and…
Learn to hum to Life’s song.

Original Sins

DownUp +1

Those multitudes of sin are
variations on a theme –
A reflection of the heart’s wickedness
and all the evil that Satan deems.

He himself, suffering from hatefulness and hurt,
does exploit physicality’s weakness in Man.
For Satan’s attacks continue from his being –
Eternally condemned and forever damned.

In a false semblance of our God,
the count of unique sins is three
in a twisted parallel of…
The sacred number of Trinity.

Opposing the Christ in wilderness’ testing
he perceived the Lord’s flesh failing,
but not the Spirit’s strength in handling
a confrontation with the Kingdom without ending.

These concepts -the Earthly Pride of Life
coupled with the Lust of the Flesh and of the Eyes-
maintain our separation from God
as the Devil manipulates, through deceiving lies.

The boldness of the Savior’s Truth
and the Christ’s everlasting victory
(as demonstrated by Him at Calvary)
provide True Life, when you just believe.
