    Pain and suffering
    Years of service
    To gain the One I love

    So happy, the years were nothing
    To give my Precious One

    Hard to get
    So fair in beauty
    A deep painting
    Whose beauty is neverending

    I had to prove I was worthy
    He doesn't want it to be easy
    His heart so innocent and full of righteous desire
    He wants His dreams fulfilled
    And I longingly want to fulfill them

    14 years
    Yet the pain in those years
    He is worthy of far more though
    But I don't deserve to suffer for millions of years

    Therefore, I will give Him what He's asked
    14 years
    And fulfill His orders eternally
    Happily, willingly, joyfully, eternally
    Everything He deserves
    He is so good and deserving
    The eternal smile on His face of such a One alone
    The reason I do anything

    My love,
    My service, I bring to You
    My obedience,
    My bowing my knee at Your name
    I bring to You
    I bow to You eternally and forever

    Very nice.

    Now wait till you reach 3x7=21 years, a near perfect number to be in His service. Spiritual life goes in cycles of 3 1/2 years so 14 years will have the 4 craftsman employed and working on God's Temple within.

    I'm not sure what that means exactly. You can explain further if you would like, would love to hear what you mean by that. Who are the "craftsmen?" Thank you for your compliment! God bless you! :)

    i found that in each 3 1/2 years in His service the Holy Spirit produced a craftsman in my heart. Where the loving truth of God was setting me free from the powers waged against me. A spiritual maturity if you like, which helped keeping me free from the oppressive forces of the world around me. When you think about those craftsman think about the godly knowledge you have gained which assist you fighting of the world, your own flesh and the devil, setting you free to serve and delight in The Lord having left sin slavery behind you.

    14 years into His service i saw the four craftsman and the powerful effect their work had had on me in my fight against the devil, my flesh and This world and the Temple building of my heart. It is totally outrageous to see God do that in my heart and to see Him make His Home in me. Just like Jesus said He would.

    Peace.

    Zechariah 1:14-21
    Then the angel who was speaking to me said, “Proclaim this word: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I am very jealous for Jerusalem and Zion, and I am very angry with the nations that feel secure. I was only a little angry, but they went too far with the punishment.’

    “Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will return to Jerusalem with mercy, and there my house will be rebuilt. And the measuring line will be stretched out over Jerusalem,’ declares the Lord Almighty.


    “Proclaim further: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘My towns will again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord will again comfort Zion and choose Jerusalem.’”


    Then I looked up, and there before me were four horns. I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these?”

    He answered me, “These are the horns that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.”


    Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen. I asked, “What are these coming to do?”

    He answered, “These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could raise their head, but the craftsmen have come to terrify them and throw down these horns of the nations who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter its people.”

    I'm really sorry to say it, but, the Lord Jesus Christ alone can do the work in us, He doesn't have any craftsmen doing a work in you, He does it Himself. Since you have seen a work in yourself already, it is possible you know the Holy Spirit of God, but only He - Jesus Christ - can do the work in us. I'm sorry my poem sounds like I'm praising myself for everything I have done, I don't mean it that way. He is the One who has done the whole thing. However, there are places in the Word that say we must go through many trials and sufferings and persecution to prove ourselves worthy of salvation. We must go through a lot. That is all I meant, to bless God and help others think with my poetry.

    Why would you be sorry to say that only Jesus can work salvation in us? That is what i was talking about. What He did in my heart and what He did renewing my mind. Do you think any one can do that themselves? That is ludicrous only The Living Word can do that.

    That is my joy, He wrote me into the word, and i know He does that to all those who love Him and obey His voice. When we love Him and neighbour He comes Alive within us. That is the very best part of being His Child.

    All Glory to His Name!:clap:

    Peace.

    1 Peter 1:22-25
    Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,


    “All people are like grass,
    and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
    the grass withers and the flowers fall,
    but the word of the Lord endures forever.”


    And this is the word that was preached to you.
