Encouraging Poem About Life

This is a poem I wrote about  life called "This Old House". I try to  turn the hardships and failures my life into an encouraging poem. I hope this poem will be so encouraging to you that it makes your heart smile!

This is a short inspirational poem I wrote about how God can restore anything even a ruined condemned home that I lived in for so many years. God can rebuild anything including human beings that's why He is considered a Master Craftsmen!

                                                    This Old House
There was once an old house that stood on a street alone, 
it was now condemned but it was once a very beautiful home.
 The neighborhood was hideous-- the street ran to a dead-end, 
it was truly one of the worse places I’ve ever been. 
It was nothing but dry barren land,
 the only things were there were rocks and blowing sand.
 The structure of the house was completely falling apart,
 but there was something about this house that really captured my heart. 
I knew it was condemned and needed to be torn down, 
but I felt it could be saved if it was rebuilt from the ground. 
Not long ago, it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever saw,
 it was like looking at a beautiful rare diamond that didn’t have a flaw.
 Inside use to have a beautifully decorated kitchen, bathroom, and den,
 I just couldn’t believe a jewel like this was about to come to an end.
 I said to myself, “there must be someway to save this fine majestic home, 
it is possible since the foundation is still strong.”
“Indeed, this house can be saved though there is not much of it left, 
since I AM a Master Craftsman I shall restore it Myself. Since it has a solid foundation,  it doesn't have to be torn down,  this house shall become the most beautiful home around. Because of thy faith, I shall make this home thy reward, the entire structure and landscape shall be fully restored. I can restore it with the greatest of ease, because you are My faithful servant in whom I’m well pleased”

                 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"
