Inspiring Verses

One of the most inspiring verses in the Bible is II Corinthians 12:8-10. Apostle Paul makes a very impressive statement about faith.

                                                                        

Apostle Paul said he pleaded with God several times to remove an  infliction he suffered. I'm sure the infliction caused him a great deal of pain and anguish because he wouldn't have mentioned it in the Bible if it didn't. The infliction itself is not inspiring. 

What's so inspiring is his great faith. He said "I take pleasure in infirmities... for Christ's sake." The Lord had told him that "His grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."
If His grace is good enough for Paul than it's definitely good enough for you and I!
Please enjoy this poem written from one of my favorite Bible verses.



Thorn in the Side

I once had a thorn that pierced my side,
the pain became so bad until I almost died.
 It got to the point where I regretted the day I was born.
 I did everything possible, but couldn’t remove the pain of the thorn.
It was very difficult trying to endure the pain,
but no matter how I suffered, I didn’t ever  complain.
 I tried my best to remove it, but no matter how hard I tried,
 the infliction kept tormenting me deep with inside.
Then I prayed,
“O Lord, if I have found favor, please heal my wound.
I am suffering so bad that I will surely die soon…”

“Indeed, I have found favor,
 thy faith have made you whole,
This very hour you shall be healed mind, body and soul. 
Though you were afflicted your faith in Me never died, 
this is the reason why I shall remove it from thy side. 
 All the pain, suffering, and torment I shall replace,
I do this because there is great strength in My grace.

                 Inspirational and Spiritual Poetry

We all need inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes just a kind word can be a blessing and it can help us get  through our darkness hour!! During those struggling times, I try to find some inspiring words to share and comfort. A good encouraging word can turn someones life around.

"He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted and proclaim LIBERTY to the captives."
Isaiah 61:1

                                  My Testimony 

I was born and raised in Detroit MI. I grew up in an unstable home. My father physically and mentally abused my mother. His abusiveness had an adverse effect on me as well as my siblings. It caused homelessness and a lot of mental anguish. It also caused a great deal of hardship and grief.

As a result, I did not attend school regularly. I developed a leaning disability. I did not like going to school. I could not read and comprehend like other kids in elementary. I struggled though middle school and eventually dropped out in the 9th grade.

 I did not get involved in any criminal activity during this time, but I wasn’t doing anything constructive with my life either. I was not interested in sports or anything else that would make my life better.

 I began smoking marijuana at around sixteen years old. I tried alcohol, but didn’t like the taste or the feeling of being drunk. So I stuck with smoking weed until I meet crack in 1984.

 My life quickly grew out of control. I lied, cheated, and stole to support my crack habit. My only purpose in life was to get high. I lost friends and family members trust and respect. Getting high was all that mattered to me.

 At twenty-seven, I committed my first felony that lead me to prison. It was one of the worse experience s of my life. I was completely lost and did not know or understand just how serious things were.

 As result of my insanity, I went to prison several more times. My last visit was indeed the lowliest and darkest periods in my life. I lost all hope about myself. Despair became my best friend as I sit in the cold jail cell. I thought of ways to end my life because I did not want to go through the pain and suffering anymore. But at my lowest moment, something happened. The Lord came and touched my heart and gave me a reason to continue on.

Today, I use my experience to help inspire and uplift others. I want my poems to glory God and give encouragement and inspiration to the "Brokenhearted"
