I would not be who I am today if I had not gone through what I did yesterday-I am here-God allowed it ;therefore, it was o.k.
    Thank you. God
    bless you,

Hello,
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Arene and I
wanted to tell you a little something about me in
case the wrong idea is taken from my work of love.
My poems are intended to reach the souls of those
who have experienced something in their lives and
think that at the moment they will not make it
through. Holding on to the past, prevents one
from enjoying the present and not seeing a better
future. It is possible to make it through, but my
one hope is that you do not lose you in the
process. Philippians 4:13-I can do all things
through Christ who strengtheneth me. My poems
began to have more substance directly or indirectly
through my life experiences.  Only God has
allowed me to stand today.
I have been told that I am able to express in my
poetry deep emotions of how one feels.  My hope
is that my poems lift your spirit back in the
direction of God. There have been times when I
have read them again and been re-diredted myself.
Thank you again for stopping by and may the
grace of God be with you always.
Much peace and love,

Arene
P.S
Except for the grace of God, there go I

    A true friend struggles to save a mans soul, but an
    enemy will assist him to destroy it!
    Your character should always be aware that
    whether man sees you or not, God is watching you!

    Isaiah 55:11
    So shall My word be that goes
    forth from My mouth; it shall
    not return to me void, But it
    shall accomplish what I please
    and it shall prosper in the thing
    for which I sent it

    Poetic passages (click here)
    A study was done to show the effects of
    negative words and or images on race and
    gender. Those who were exposed to the
    negative comments or images,  tested
    significantly lower than those not given the
    negative input. In fact, those given positive
    input tested even higher than expected. Those
    who were tested thought that the negative
    input had no effect on them at all.  

    THEY WERE WRONG!
    Are you
    "BEING"
    positive or
    negative in
    your life and
    the lives of
    others?
    It's your
    choice!

Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these
things, if God be for us ,who can be against us
    “Only Christ”

    We cannot hide it, change it, erase it, or correct it once it is completed
    Only Christ can stand before the throne for us while we remain seated
    Once a sin is done, there is nothing we can do as it is inked in stone
    Only Christ can forgive us for sinning, cover it or say “sin be gone”

    When men and women have relations out of marriage what is, is not what was
    If men and women marry because of lust instead of God commissioned love

    All will find before it is done obedience is far better than sacrifice
    Only God can ordain a man as a husband and a woman as a wife?

    Things done in secret places and in the dark will one day be revealed
    Confess and ask forgiveness and at judgment, Jesus will keep them sealed

    I speak these words after I check myself and I pluck the boulder out of my own eye
    What person is capable of un-ringing a bell once it is rung no matter how hard they try?

    We cannot hide it, change it, erase it, or correct it once it is completed
    Only Christ can stand before the throne for us while we remain seated
    Once a sin is done, there is nothing we can do as it is inked in stone
    Only Christ can forgive us for sinning, cover it or say “sin be gone”

    He who finds a wife finds a good thing and a man is not to waste his seed
    Has the Lord already not warned of a whorish woman brings a man to his knees?

    Honor and direct the weaker vessel and not make her as one who is tattered and torn
    Keep ever present in mind “Hell has no fury like a woman who has been scorned

    These days the leaders and head of the home have become selfish lovers of selves
    Children are misguided and women turn from natural affection which points to hell

    Christ is consistent from beginning to end and his arms are opened as he waits
    We are the ones who move from Him, but will we return before it is too late?

    We cannot hide it, change it, erase it, or correct it once it is completed
    Only Christ can stand before the throne for us while we remain seated
    Once a sin is done, there is nothing we can do as it is inked in stone
    Only Christ can forgive us for sinning, cover it or say “sin be gone”

    How can the things already done be corrected, changed or taken away?
    Christ can cover them with His blood and we can start over from today

    We have to listen to the Holy Spirit because my God cannot and has never lied
    If the Holy Spirit can not be heard, it has been grieved, or the person has never tried

    Keep Gods word in your mind, on your lips and most of all in your hearts
    This is how to stay ahead of temptations and prevent the sin before it starts

    No matter how small or how large it may be, the wages of sin is death
    Remember when sin is done by the believer, we crucify Christ afresh

    We cannot hide it, change it, erase it, or correct it once it is completed
    Only Christ can stand before the throne for us while we remain seated
    Once a sin is done, there is nothing we can do as it is inked in stone
    Only Christ can forgive us for sinning, cover it or say “sin be gone”

Luke 9:20
"But what about you?" he
asked. "Who do you say I
am?" Peter answered, "The
Christ of God."

If your actions represent
who you are ;although you
remain silent, you will be
heard loud and clear.

Number 23: 19
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said,
and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
You think you have been through some things?
This is God getting real deep with Job read:
Job: 38
You better recognize!

    “God Said O.K.”

    When you belong to God, he weighs everything before he allows it to come your
    way
    Think of what Satan was allowed to do to Job on any God given permission day

    From boils- to friends criticism- to the loss of each child’s life
    His home destroyed and no support from even his wife

    It is easy for us to observe and say that Job was a strong man
    His faith was strengthened because he followed Gods plan

    I bet Job was the priest of his home and set a good example
    He gave a good tithe and offering and his blessings were ample

    When Satan has tempted you and you do happen to fall
    Remember that your bill has been tallied and Jesus paid it all

    All you have to do is repent of your sins and call on His name
    Change your life style and do not do things the same

    Study the word to show yourself approved
    In doing this, your testimony shall not be moved

    Consider the servant Job and do as he did
    The righteousness of Christ can keep your sins hid

    Remember this saying when you are going through
    Your seemingly bad experiences, God allowed to get through

    When you belong to God, he weighs everything before he allows it to come your
    way
    Think of what Satan was allowed to do to Job on any God given permission day

    Remember before he was allowed to do it-God said “o.k.”

    Romans 6:23
    The wages of sin is
    death, but the gift
    of God is eternal
    life through Jesus
    Christ our
    Lord.
    John 3:16
    For God so loved
    the world, that He
    gave his only
    begotten son, so
    that who so ever
    believeth in him
    should not perish,
    but hath
    everlasting life.

    "Obedience is
    better than
    sacrifice"
    “God Loves Us”

    God loves us even when we do not love ourselves
    Sometimes we reach for Him and then refuse His help

    He has warned many times and then he warns us again
    We can not live a life as a Christian and continue in sin

    I am not talking to you of this warning as if it is not for
    me
    God sends people to remove my blindfolds so that I
    may see

    If you know the love of God like I do, He never will lie
    Sometimes we give up on His will before we really try

    This is a true saying as Christians are always on one
    accord
    God will use His will as He pleases for He is Lord of
    Lords

    God loves us even when we do not love ourselves
    Sometimes we reach for Him and then refuse His help

    If we continue in sin, we may grieve the Holy Spirit
    This is why some of us seem lost and can not hear it

    We can not mix righteousness with sin and think it is o.
    k.
    We are to serve the Lord always- so choose Him today

    If God has given you the person to share your life
    Do not dishonor each other: be husband and wife

    Yes, we are passionate people filled with lust and love
    It is undefiled when commissioned from God above

    God loves us even when we do not love ourselves
    Sometimes we reach for Him and then refuse His help

    This one is for us Christians,

    "Putting The Pieces Together"
    1 Corinthians
    13:11
    When I was a
    child, I talked
    like a child, I
    thought like a
    child, I
    reasoned like a
    child, when I
    became a man
    I put childish
    ways behind
    me
I would rather be a step behind God- keeping with his plan than
go before Him and hoping later that he will fix mine.

"More Than Anything"

More than the gentleness nestled in the softness of a dove
More than the priciest jewelry  or greatest luxury thought of
More than bouncing back from a failed goal and rising above
More than earthly treasures, riches, or pleasures-I value  love

Love love without fear,tally not the imaginable or consider the cost
Nothing defeats a mind or devastates a heart than a real love lost

Have you ever accepted a heart full of kindness and sweetness
Lost a love of a lifetime because you mistook it all for weakness

I give all my love- even possibilities: but if it is  held back from me
You will not be able to recapture that which was not meant to be

More than the gentleness nestled in the softness of a dove
More than the priciest jewelry  or greatest luxury thought of
More than bouncing back from a failed goal and rising above
More than earthly treasures, riches, or pleasures-I value  love

You professed to have faith , however it never manifested in you
God sent you a jewel, you felt unprepared even doubted the truth

Faith is the evidence of things hoped for the things not seen
God will not force to accept a gift or without faith intervene

Our love could have merged beautifully as only God was to be first
I give love freely: you will remain in prison until you let go of the hurt

More than the gentleness nestled in the softness of a dove
More than the priciest jewelry  or greatest luxury thought of
More than bouncing back from a failed goal and rising above
More than earthly treasures, riches, or  pleasures-I value  love

More than anything with me
in the end ,it's always based on love
