Now I have thought about this for a long time but recently I asked and figured it out because I was confused on how it worked You see in the end of Romans eight it tells us That nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus But in Galatians five in the end of verse 21 It says after listing the works of the flesh and that if do such things We will not inherit the kingdom of God I wondered how that could be because it just said in Romans Nothing will or can separate us from the love of God And Galatians that doing the works of the flesh even though we are saved Cannot inherit the kingdom of God But let us go back to Romans but back a chapter to seven It says “For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. Now if I do what I do not want I agree with the law, that it is good. So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin who dwells within me… Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.” So it’s not us? Yes but no because it’s our flesh But if we commit sin and know we are committing it then it sin Because we know the right thing to do but fail to do it But going back to my main thought We can go to first John and it tells us that “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” We are confessing our sins to God We are admitting that what we did was wrong We are asking for forgiveness We ask for forgiveness and can still inherit the kingdom of God Why? Because we are his and he calls us each by name in Isaiah It says “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” We are His We are no longer conforming Or we shouldn’t be conforming any longer to this world We became aliens once we let Jesus in He is alive In us We are a new creation the old has gone the new has come So what are you waiting for? Get out there and be different Don’t just say you’re a Christian or a Christ follower Live it out You are a child of God So nothing in all of creation can ****** you away from the hand of God.
When I look upon my life and ask what It's all about I look upon my childhood of abuse and ask the question why I look and see only a life of struggle just to survive each every day I look upon photos of my wife no longer with me She who gave me hope and and a purpose In life I was so unsure of but, It was fate that bought us together And was fate that took her away a fate that gave with one hand an then took away with the other And left me to face this world alone still asking the question why to were I believe there Is no answer
Questions still I find myself asking but knowing there are no answers
It seems the walls that block my vision were once my wishes, my decisions.
Lives seem built upon themselves and where we are, who knows—which floor? How high above, how far below how many more?
And every ceiling thwarts ascent— each one a floor auparavant.
. Auparavant: a French word meaning "previously". . Not all poems survive. I've lost a few and let others go. My current collection of poems is available on Kindle and in paperback. It is called "3201 e's" (that is approximately how many e's are in the manuscript which is a very unpoetic title but a reflection on the creation of poetry by common means.) .
Guess, I'm sorry I cannot forget you All these things that we've been through How can I forget you? When my mind, heart and soul is still you Day and night I cannot deny The thoughts running through my mind And I can't control what's inside Questions keeps knocking in my head Every time when I'm in bed These questions cannot be answer without you Since, it belongs to you
You're becoming unhinged. Searching for answers in the words That were so scrambled they almost came with toast. It's okay. I'll protect this home of ours While you try to rebuild it. I'll take the double edged jade sword That has become your nature, And bury it far away Next to the skeletons, Under the dark corners, And just behind your eyes.
I have travelled my mind so much of late beginning to find again the real me that's laid hidden for many years Through all the pain and all the tears, and there will always be more questions then there ever will be answers too I suppose that's life but at leased, I'm making an effort now to make something of my life all I can do now
There will always be more Questions than answers that's life
Is there now a beginning and will there be end to starting life all over again To where do I start and to where dose it end that Is a question only for me to try to answer for It's only for me to find what's to be In started life all over again
Questions but not yet any answers I guess It going to take time
Attention to detail; Something I want, but couldn't give. I'm a complete mess, Is this something etched in me? Am trying my very best, Maybe I'll never understand. A bit of sleight of hand, What a craftsman would I be?
