What Do You Want From The World?

What Do You Want From The World ?

What do you want from the world.

Is it peace, happiness, and Love?

All of this is much more attainable

Coming from the Lord up Above.


Can the world give a heart's desire

And yet leave you truly debt free?

Can you rise from bed each morning

And be the happiest you could be?


Or, do you awaken every morning

With the feeling something isn't right?

Could you change your life completely

If you just strove with all your might?


We have an enemy in this evil world

Searching for souls he can devour ,

But we have a friend up in Heaven

Who has more wealth and Power .


He has Peace that He will give you

Like this world will never know.

You can take Him with you everyday

No matter where you have to go.


He'll add such richness to your life

That the world would never tell.

He will prepare you for the future

A place where you will forever dwell.


So what do you really want the world

To place within your searching hand?

The future happiness will come to you

If with the Savior you will boldly stand !


Your future home in Heaven is debt free,

It's a gift to you from the Lord Above.

Just reach your hand up to the Savior

And He will fill your heart with Love!

Have you ever felt if you had the money

you could buy your heart's desire? Wrong!

Money can buy worldly possessions but it

can't buy love,it can't buy good health and

it can't buy the Peace that God can send to

your heart. Just ask any man that is rich if

they can use money to purchase a loved one's

heart,or if they can give money for that inner

Peace that only comes from God,the world

doesn't have it to sell but you can receive

it free as a gift from The Lord. All that you

have to do is repent of your sins and ask

Jesus to forgive you. He'll pardon your sins,

it's just as simple as that !

I am happy to say riches are not a problem to me and I know where to build my treasures. I have known Jesus (getting ready to post a story just about that) all my life and somehow I have learned along the way.

Your poems teach so much in just a few words and I will keep sharing them with everyone here I know. God bless you Clara.

Hello Jackie, Thank you for your nice comments , I Really appreciate them,Thank you and Faith for the Hug . There have been quite a few people told me how well they liked the poems but I just was not sure , I guess I thought they were being nice to me. I have really been reading some of them lately and I am beginning to see that no thanks to me ,they are good , the thanks are to God because he gives me the ideas and words lots of the time , Sometime if I get stuck I just ask Him to help and He does.These are much more God than me . I was still in bed this morning and the words came to me , "What Do You Want From The World? " so I got my pad and wrote it. I just got through putting it on here now.So you see where my ideas come from.If it wasn't for God I wouldn't be here now,I guess He still have some things for me to write yet. Love, Clara

You have a talent for conveying a beautiful message, and holding the reader's interest. I love what you were saying about being inspired to write this poem - I wish more people could open up and listen.

Hi Dearest Clara,

We can always count on you to share His truths with us all here in such profound poetry.

Thank you for always glorifying our Lord God in your work without ever waivering a bit.

It is a beautiful free gift, and I am glad I accepted such gift long ago. His love is like no other, as it is true, divine, agape love!

He already paid the highest price for our sins. So our debt is paid in full! Praise Him! To God be the glory!

Voted up ++++ and sharing as always

God bless you precious heart,

Faith Reaper

Hello Relationshipc,Thank you for your visit, I am always glad to meet new friends.It seems like no matter how you try, that as soon as you say anything about God they tune you out,I don't know if they don't want to talk about God or if it makes them uncomfortable . I am not a very good speaker, I do my talking with my pen. I know some folks read these poems but I do not know how they feel about them. I know if you push too hard it is a lost cause trying to get them to the Lord. Anyone have any ideas that might help? love, Clara

Hello Faith, It is hard for me to get used to believing that these poems are helping people, I would never have believed it would happen to me, I think,no, I know some people always thought poetry was a waste of time and there was a lot more important things to be doing,so I really never tried to let anyone know that I wrote poems.It sounds kind of strange now when I think of it , but I never really got into thinking that God gave this to me.I have a poem written when He touched my pen that was when I told God I would write for him alone .I will write for Him as long as I am able.Thanks to you and Jackie for the Hugs . I needed that. Love you.Clara

Clara voted up, useful and beautiful. Thank you for sharing your loyalty to Jesus Christ. God is using you as a wonderful example of peace, which I am sure will have a domino effect. Your writings will cause others to question and get to know our Savior. Thank you for your angel sprinkles that radiate from your hubs. Blessings Sparklea :)

Hello Sparklea, I wanted to write for God but I never thought it would mushroom to this.I guess I thought in some small way maybe I could touch some people's lives but I never thought it would reach to other countries, I was on another website for a few months but I had to pay to be on there and I did not like the way it was set up so I just quit that one , I had signed up for hub pages before but didn't put anything on there, Then when I quit the other one I went back to check on here and I was still in it , I tried it and I have been here every since , so I guess I will be here as long as I am able to do it. I have met so many nice people on here , seems about like being in church at times. even if I never get a penny on here I will still send poems as long as I can.Before I came on here I thought I might b e out of place .I never knew I would meet so many Christians on here and I am sure that God led me here. Thanks for your comments , love, Clara

Hello Clara..

your hubs inspire any who reads them .. the words of the lord are strongly emphasized in your poems .. although your poems stand out on their own for sure. Jus t to read your wonderful work is uplifting to me .. When I find myself questioning my faith ..a hub such as yours ..shows me the way back to the side of the Lord.

Thank You Clara ..and don't stop writing..

Michaelo

Thank you ,Gypsy Rose, for your comment.At times in this day it seems like it is hard to keep faith with all of the things the devil throws at you .

Never give up ,our God is stronger than all that Satan throws our way.We have to keep looking up not down.There is nothing down below that we want any part of. With Love, Clara

Hello MsDora, Yes, we have a friend and I want all that He offers me, not just want I need all that He has for me.Without God staying close to us where would we be now? Love, Clara

I'm so glad Jackie and Faith brought you to our attention. This poem is so right and a beautiful testimony to our Lord. Truly there is nothing in this world that can compare or compete with the incredible feeling of God's love. Not even the best chocolate. ;)

Voted up, beautiful, awesome, and will share.
