It Is Hot Tonight,Too hot To Sleep

It Is Hot Tonight, Too Hot To Sleep

It's so hot tonight, it 's too hot to sleep

Too hot for comfort ,then I think of Hell.

A place for Satan,such a place of torment .

A place where the wicked are sent to dwell.


The heat of this world ,the trials we endure,

When it comes to Hell earth can't compare.

If we could pull a curtain ,bring it into view,

Would people still ignore it or be unaware?


Would it sink into their hearts and minds

That this is their home when they pass away?

Would they mock God all He stands for

Or, would they fall on their knees and pray?


The trials we have and the troubles to come,

The people headed for Hell don't seem to mind.

Do they think it's a fable or truly not sure ?

We wonder how people today can be so blind.


The trials of this world and the trouble s we share,

They are only minor now as the heat of the day.

Just compare with the torture of Satan's Hell

Then Thank God for giving one more day to pray!

We have to ask ourselves if we have done

all that we could to get our loved ones in .

Did we take them to church , did they learn

about God? Did they ever believe Jesus

would return to this earth someday ?Were

they just castaways like many are in this day

just free to do what they wanted when they

wanted to with no supervision by parents?

When Jesus returns there will be a lot of

brokenhearted parents and children alike

then .This is the time to go to God in Prayer,

Don't wait ,prayer time may be very short now.

Hi Clara,

Thank you for this reminder of what awaits those who reject the King of the Universe, knowingly.

I always feel I could pray more than I do. And I certainly feel the sadness that I did not bring my children to Jesus whilst they were still under my roof. I was one of the lost then too. I want only His words to come forth from my mouth but even that is not always so. God Bless.

Outstanding, Clara,

Hell is a reality; the Bible is extremely clear on this. It is imperative we warn others of such a horrible eternal fate if they do not comply to the commandments of God through Jesus Christ!

Wow! Every situation has a spiritual implication and you have the poetic format in which to present it. I admire your talent. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful poem!

It is true we do have to ask ourselves if we did do everything we could do to warn people about it. The grace of God provides new days so that more souls can be saved from that terrible fate!

Hi Karen,

I wrote this in 1998 and I was not on any web site until 2011 so I just laid it back , I guess I more or less forgot about it until one day I was going through some of my old poems and I found this and now seems to be the time to put it on, I hope that it touches hearts everywhere. God gave it to me for a reason. I guess I was a lost child then,too,I wasn't taught about God when I was young and I have many regrets, I thank God that He forgave me and I know He will forgive those who come to Him Honestly seeking forgiveness. Thank you ,Karen always good to hear from you, Love, Clara

Thank you, Caleb ,I wrote this in 1998 and just laid it back , I was not on a website at the time and I did not even have a computer , in fact at that time I was not even interested in having one . My oldest son asked me if I would use one if he got it , I told him ,sure I'll use it ,in a joking way so he bought it and here I am now , I am sure now that God was behind this , now He is still giving me ideas for poems . I hope to be here for a long while until I am 90 years old anyway. Clara

Hello MsDora, thank you so much for your comments and compliments,I never thought I would ever hear such nice things about God's and my poems. I have written poems for years but until the last few years very few people had even seen them, some people thought it was just a waste of my time, but it was something that I just had to do . I used to write so many different kinds none bad , but not for God, I wrote a poem which was true that I asked God to touch my pen and I said "It was only when I said I would write for Him alone , that is when touched my pen ". So here I am today. Clara

I am sure that most of us feel that we could do better getting the unsaved to The Lord, I know that I feel that way but what can you do when you can not even get people to read the messages that God has given . I am not much of a talker but when I get on here it seems like I go on and on Do you suppose this is my soapbox, if so ,I will use it as long as I live to try to draw unsaved ones to God.Thank you,North Wind. Clara


Rayne123 3 years ago

I feel the same way, I can give answers and opinions like crazy on here. I guess there is a reason for all through the eyes of God

When you write do you feel that Gods words that you are writing is an answer/message to some. Or just write and not think about it, knowing it is for someone out there and that is all you need to know. Just wondering what goes through your mind when you write Gods words down.

Thank you

Laurie

Thank you Laurie, for both of your comments , I am glad that you like d the poem , I was surprised to get so many comments that quick , put it on late last night, and was happy to see so many people seemed to like it , I have written for years but it was not until I asked God to touch my pen did I ever write anything really worth while, I told Him I would write for Him alone so here I am now doing just that, Clara


Rayne123 3 years ago

So you dont know that it could be an answer/message to someone then?

God works in mysterious ways and I have written many poems through the eyes of God. I always thought it was for me only as God helps me get my poems published, however reading your poems as brought me to wonder about mine.

Could l have someones answer to their question/prayer to God

thanks

Laurie

Laurie,when God gives us a message we may not know who it is for ,but God knows and He will use it maybe for someone we know or a stranger to us but not to God. They are not wasted words that we receive .Just b e thankful and believe they will hit the heart they are supposed to Clara

clara kish@yahoo. 3 years ago from Mt. Perry. Ohio Author

Laurie,When God gives us a message we may never know if it is for us or for some needy heart , It may be for a loved one or a stranger , I guess it is not to question but if we send it o n we know that it will hit the heart that God intended it for. It is up to that person if they accept or reject it . God gave us all a free will and it is up to us what we do with it .we can not force people to believe as much as we would like to .Then you just pray for the loved ones. Clara


Rayne123 3 years ago

Oh I know I totally agree with you and with some there is no believing us or even care, but they will suffer the consequences on a certain date, dont ask me why I just wrote that , I was told to so I will leave it.

I was just curious because I really feel like you, but for some reason it just was on my mind at that time.

thank you for your honest answer

Sure isn't HOT here but it is Springtime and snow flurries, 15 degrees this morning, Up to 30 degrees and the ground is getting white! that Grondhog sure told a whopper of a lie this time LOL!

Now for the Poem, It is a very good message that should make people stop and think where they want to spend eternity! Some don't believe in HELL but I sure believe that there is a BURNING HELL and the Bible verifys that there is! A great message and a great job my dear friend. Yes, you have a lot of good Poetry, great messages and a lot of good dedicated followers. Keep up the great work. I love you, Tessie

Hello Laurie, Sometimes things pop into our head and we probably wonder why .I got up this morning and had no intention of writing a poem , in fact I had one picked out to put on here but a few words popped into my head , I thought well ,I'll just write them down and would probably work with them later , but every time I wrote one line another came into my head , yes. I finished it ,try to put on here today or tonight.I got this one in the daytime ,usually at night.Glad to hear from you ,Laurie


Rayne123 3 years ago

That is so beautiful

You are an inspiration

I will say that a few lines in your poems have been my answer to a question as in this one.

Thank you

Laurie

Laurie ,I am glad that I can be of help to you , it looks like we as poets have to stick together in this day and age.Some of my family always thought that my writing poems was just a waste of time ,but I felt like it was something that I had to do I guess and meant to do. Did everybody in your family think it was natural to spend so much time writing ?Very few people in my family knew at the time that I was writing poems. I didn't really tell most of them I think it was because I thought they were not very good and I suppose that I didn't want to be made fun of .Now there is hardly anyone left but me, so I can spend the time that I want to on here.Thank you for your comment, Clara


Rayne123 3 years ago

Well my mom had read some, however no one really knows in my family or friends. I didnt say anything really. However now they have become part of my life and a lot of my poems have words through God.

Maybe not quite the way yours do, however God gives his word differently for everyone.

I think my poems will become more popular through the help of God by the end of this month. God has plans that the whole world will find out.

Thank you again

Laurie

Tessie , I know a lot of folks don't believe in God or the Bible or Hell but we know that it is true ,The Bible gives us instructions for a Godly life if we would just follow His directions but most of them do not want to hear what the Bible says, What a wonderful world this would be if everybody would submit to God and His Holy Words. But they have their own free will , God did not want puppets . He wanted the ones who would come to Him willingly ,Love ,cherry

I think we probably all have a different way to write ,it would be pretty boring if everyone wrote the same way,People are different from each other and the poems are the same way . I am going to get off of here and make some pizza , my son will be over later and he is always hungry when he gets here .Talk to you later ,Clara
