Alphabetized to Maximize


As you think, so you are

Believe in God who created you

Cast all your cares on God and He will sustain you

Decide for yourself to be done with the disease called doubt

Examine your heart and find your inner peace

Forgive yourself and others as God forgives your sins

Gratefully acknowledge God for all He has given you

Heed the sage advice of one who speaks the truth in love

Inspire someone else along the pathway of life

Judge not others and be not judged

Keep God's 10 commandments

Love yourself and you will be able to receive love from others

Miracles do still happen in this day and age

Now is the time to turn your life around

Only you can "make" yourself happy

Prepare yourself now for an eternity in Heaven with God

Quiet yourself, listen and feel God's presence in your life

Remember it's all about Him (God)

Simply appreciate serving God and others

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and strength and mind and soul

Unite with other believers and be strengthened yourself

Victory in the LORD is certain for those who completely trust Him

Wishing for a better life won't make it happen

Xenophobia means fear or hatred of strangers...face your fears and they disappear

You have power that God gave you.....use it

Zeal means strong interest or devotion; intense enthusiasm

Author's Note: This poem was inspired after reading the Psalms and Proverbs.  It is powerful reading.  If you read five Psalms a day and one Proverb a day,  you will read both books in one month.  Prepare to be amazed!  I did and I was!  You must do it consecutively  and in order for your power within to be unleashed.  Trust me!  Be empowered!  Maximize your relationship with God your Creator!  AMEN!

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
