Moses and the Promised Land

This is a short poem about Moses and the Promised Land. Was Moses' promised land the wilderness? Why didn't' God give Moses the promises land? Why didn't Moses enter the promised land? 

God was with Moses journey to the promised Land, but He didn't allow Moses to live there. Moses saw the land God promised, but he didn't even get a chance to visit it. Where is the land God promised to Abraham? Where is the land of milk and honey? God promised Abraham a great nation and a land flowing with milk and honey. Moses didn’t get the opportunity to live in the land flowing with milk and honey. Has God reneged on the promise He made to Abraham in the Bible about blessing his descendants (me) with a great land flowing with milk and honey?

The Promised Land

O Lord, I’ve been wandering
in the wilderness for over 40 years,
When I think about being here,
I have to fight back my tears.
I’m about die out here in the hot dessert sand,
But before I die please allow me to see the Land.
Why didn’t You give it to Moses
when he crossed the red sea?
Why won’t You give all
You promised to me?

“Behold, I shall surely bless
your mind, body, and soul,
The  promise I gave is worth more than gold.
But there are certain requirements before entering the land,
They are the same requirement that applies to every man.
What I have promised thou shall surely reap,
I promise that I will not allow
you to die in the hot dessert heat..
Indeed, I made this promise to Abraham Myself,
I bless Abraham with long life and great wealth.
Guess what Moses wanted when I showed him place?
He wanted to see you there with a great smile on your face.”

Numbers 6:24-27, Deuteronomy 26:11-19, Joshua 24, Jeremiah 26:36

                 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"
