If you’re reading my blog for the first time welcome and I hope you will stop by often.
Right now I am writing a series of Elfchen poems which will be mainly Bible base or on nature, and I’m using “The Passion Translation” (TPT) for the ones that are Bible base.
Where To Find Other Elfchen Poems:
I understand from my blogging friend Richard who also writes poems, that the word “Elfchen” means Elevenies, since these poems will have only Eleven words. You can check out some of Richard’s poems here Big Sky Buckeye
Relaying A Message In A Few Words:
At times you may also find me writing Haiku poems which will be a little different than Elfchen…both are very enjoyable to write, and what I like most about them; You can relay a message in very few words.
Even animals remember,
But humans mainly forget
From the beginning of time we fail to acknowledge God as we should, but when situations go wrong in our lives, we tend to blame Him. If we are not connected to God on a daily basis, we will never be able to fully understand or recognize Him when He offers His help to us.
What God Did For Mankind:
“I tenderly nurtured children and made them great,[f]
but they have rebelled[g] against Me!
What God Says About Animals:
3 Even a dumb ox instinctively knows its owner
and the stubborn mule knows the hand that feeds him,[h]
but Israel does not know Me[i]
nor do My people understand.”[j] Isaiah:1:2-3 (TPT)
Consumed with godliness
Will speed up Jehovah’s
What People Need To Understand:
The day of the Lord will come and take everyone by surprise—as unexpected as a home invasion. The atmosphere will be set on fire and vanish with a horrific roar, and the heavenly bodies[l] will melt away as in a tremendous blaze. The earth and every activity of man will be laid bare.
On The Verge Of Happening:
11 Since all these things are on the verge of being dismantled, don’t you see how vital it is to live a holy life? We must be consumed with godliness 12 while we anticipate and help to speed up the coming of the day of God,[n] when the atmosphere will be set on fire and the heavenly bodies consumed in a blaze.
Awaiting A New Beginning:
13 But as we wait, we trust in God’s royal proclamation to be fulfilled. There are coming[o] heavens new in quality, and an earth new in quality, where righteousness will be fully at home.[p] 2 Peter 3:10-13
