    "If God Took His Hand Away"
    by CherryBlossom

    Life does not issue absolutes
    Nor offer any guarantee
    So as you challenge and question God
    In anger and dismay
    Ask yourself, “Where would I be
    If God took His Hand away?”

    Yes, you’ve suffered and been hurt
    But, in spite of all, I still assert
    That God has never forsaken you
    For you’re not the only one
    Who’s ever cried, “I’m going through!”
    But I remember how Job still did humbly pray
    Even when his own wife told him to curse God and betray
    His faith
    But, No, he never went astray
    Asking himself, “Where would I be
    If God took His Hand away?”

    Oh, yes, it’s easy to praise Him
    When we’ve been blessed
    But when troubles rise
    Should we then, His power, doubt and despise?
    Should we, then, not be impressed
    Thinking HE failed some test
    Because He hasn’t, yet….. let us rest?
    So, then, should HIS glory be assessed
    Because some days are long and grey?
    Well, what would you, then, say
    If God took His Hand away?

    It's Me, Oh Lord

    "It's Me, Oh Lord"
    by CherryBlossom


    Dear Heavenly Father:

    Today, I, this undeserving but pleading child comes to you
    As an unworthy
    But sincere
    Volunteer
    To "Stand In The Gap."
    No, I don't know just what or who or why
    But, today, I humbly ask you to wrap
    Your arms around all those who read this
    Only You and they know what problems exist
    But I do know that YOU can make a way out of no way
    I know that YOU can change the clouds of grey
    I know that YOU are the healer of a weary land
    So, today, Father, I stretch out my hand
    For your touch of merciful grace
    No, I'm no "warrior" but, today, I'll gladly take the place
    Of any who cannot seem to find the words to ask
    So, here I am, a most unlikely candidate for the task
    But my heart is earnest as I come to intercede
    For You know our every wishful thought and wanting need
    And, today, I ask for you to dispel
    Whatever pain and despair
    As you hear, this, my beseechful yet bold
    Intercessory prayer.

    Amen. ​

    Yes, I am familiar with that poem.

    I think it's a lovely uplifting and validating piece of poetry.

    Some may disagree with the last stanza, but the rest is inarguable truth.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and the Truth!





    Well, thank you cherryblossom, I sorta figured you were familiar with the piece. And for those that may disagree with the last stanza, outside of my work: Does Color Matter?, we have Biblical History of Black Mankind by C. McGhee Livers, Shahar Publishing, which exposition focuses on aphar ha adhaman, the black clay of the ground from which Adam(Adham) was made. Livers and I are friends and are collaborating at the present with the idea of a symposium of latter rain teachers. I will keep you posted....Peace In my sister friend.

    :wave:Greetings and Welcome Sister Cherryblossom!:wave:

    Your poetry is very inspiring and beautiful!:hearts4:
    I'm going to move this thread to the poetry section,
    as we do attempt to keep things in its proper catergory.

    Sometimes we may read a discussion that inspires us
    to express our creative thoughts in the discussion forums,
    but this leaves management with the extra work of moving
    and placing them in their respective forums.

    Please don't let this response discourage you in anyway.
    We'd love to continue reading your wonderful creativeness.
    we just ask that you help us keep things in order.

    Thank you for sharing so much of yourself, and Welcome to Destee's!:couple:
    Our...Your... Internet Home!

    :heart:

    "At The End Of The Day"

    The majesty of beautiful Sunsets,
    Oft times, begets
    A somber review of regrets
    Birthed by unfulfilled debts
    To myself and others
    And yet
    Its glorious spectrum
    Also sets my soul to hum
    While I thankfully succumb
    To the grand sum
    Of mercies and blessings,
    My daily assessing
    Of what IS more than what isn’t

    Yes, before I peruse where I may have been remiss
    I’ll remember God’s divine set-in -the sky promise
    And, I’ll remind myself as I reflect on my day
    That Rainbows don’t contain the color “Gray.”
    So
    When the next sunset I see
    And I’ve wistfully sat and pondered
    Over what time I may have squandered
    I’ll just let my mind recall an old gospel hymn
    Which brightens what once was grim

    For no matter what’s left undone
    No matter how far the race be run
    And may, in looking back, cast a dark pall
    I’ll remember to mark the times I get up
    And not the times I fall

    Indeed, insignificant are the darts
    Which seek to destroy
    I’ll just look UP and count it all JOY!

    Yes, the next time I see a sunset
    When my work-day is through
    I’ll sing, “I may not have done all the things that I wanted to do.”
    And, before one minute of it I survey
    I’ll raise my voice and confidently say
    “But, Lord, it’s been a mighty good day.”
