The Root of Bitterness ~

The Root of Bitterness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The root of bitterness,
digs deep into our soul
fighting so ever hard
to take complete control.

It’s entirely entrenched,
in resentment and regret
holds tightly to our heart
so the past we’ll not forget.

It puts a choke hold on,
the thoughts in our mind
in the hopes God’s peace
we won’t be able to find.

It establishes itself,
before we even know
until on the outside
our anger starts to show.

The only way to kill,
the root of bitterness
is to apply to it . . .
God’s love and forgiveness!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:31

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger,
and clamour, and evil speaking,
be put away from you, with all malice:”

King James Version

Be Slow in Your Anger ~

Remain In Love

Be slow in your anger,
be slow to show your wrath
for you are called to peace
with self-control as your path.

Be not puffed up with pride,
be not filled with malice
for you’re called to be gentle
not thick-skinned and callous.

Put off all bitterness and hate,
put off the grudge inside you
for you are called to temperance
in everything you say and do.

Take off that old sinful man,
take off the old wicked nature
for you are called in His love
to bring hope for the future.

Be kind to one another,
be tenderhearted and forgiving
for Jesus is God’s example
of how we should be living!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:32
King James Version

“And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted,

forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ’s sake

hath forgiven you.”

Why I am Thankful ~

Why am I thankful,
let me count the ways . . .
and the first one is because
I trust Jesus with all my days.

I am thankful for His love,
for forgiving me my sin
I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit
who dwells and lives within.

I am thankful for His mercy,
His endless supply of grace
I’m thankful that He knows
the very contour of my face.

I am thankful for His truths,
keeping me on the narrow path
I am thankful that I’ll not know
the full measure of His wrath.

I am thankful for His peace,
the calmness that surrounds me
I’m thankful for the living hope
that one day with Jesus, I will be.

Why am I thankful,
I cannot count all the ways . . .
but, for these and so many more
I give to God all my praise!

~~~~~~~~~~~

May our Lord and Savior
be your reason to be thankful . . .

This Thanksgiving Day and every day!

Amen and Amen

With Fear and Trembling

Once ~ I use to fear God . . .
and trembled at His holy name
hearing about “Fire and Brimstone”
reminded me of hell’s flame.

I would shiver and I’d shake,
when I heard about His wrath
and I knew that I had better
keep to the narrow path.

I would listen to my preacher,
talk about God’s end-time plan
and how Satan was prepared
to pluck me out ~ from His hand.

But, as the years went by . . .
I no longer heard these words
and when the flame died out
I began to fall ~ backwards.

Going to church became fun,
for God’s love is a wonderful thing
my pastor dwelled on my life-purpose
and all the blessings it would bring.

With all condemnation set aside,
I could focus on what drove me
so I went out into the world
to have me a real good look-see.

Oh, what I saw . . .
lit the fires of hell right back up
and once again, I was full of fear
for I saw what was in Satan’s cup.

It is true we must love others,
but their sin we still must expose
what kind of love would we possess
if we left them to hell’s throes?

So if you are a roving seeker,
you still need to fear God’s wrath
and it would be wise for you to hurry
back onto the straight and narrow path.

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
