A Poem for the Christians Among Us

Post by BillW » Mon Nov 09, 2020 9:07 pm

My heart says, "No!"My head says, "Yes!"
The peaceful fruit of righteousness awaits.
Those the rod has trained in love and trust
Receive the fruit that exercise creates.
Chast'ning is grievous, but unless
It does its destined work within the soul
Will the One ordaining it still bless
The one who spurned it, never rendered whole?
The way is marked. The path is more than plain
And we will not ignore it or pretend.
Those who have not shrunk from fear of pain
Will be among the thankful in the end.
He welcomes ev'ry chastened child
Rebellious once, now reconciled. (Hebrews 12)

I'm glad you liked it, Olivia.

For some reason I don't understand two words got omitted from line one. It should read,
"My hears says, "No !" My head says, "Yes. You must !
It seems like the spell check feature I don't know how to delete on our old dinosaur tablet makes decisions on its own after enough time has passed that I'm not watching it. I would edit it if I could.

I believe that AWE is saying that she is not Christian.

Jacob's is right, thank you for explaining.

I'm saying that I appreciate the poem even though I am not christian.
