There are many ways God speaks to us as His children. One of the ways is that He uses men and women to carry a specific message of hope, encouragement, inspiration or blessing to us.
I can honestly say that God has been using some blogs to speak to me. One of such blog is CHRISTian poetry by Deborah Ann.
God has used Ann to bless and inspire me through her beautiful Christian poems. Every morning, Ann waits upon God by meditating on the Scripture until she is able to get a message out from it.
The message is then packaged and delivered to us on her blog in the form of rhymes. That way, she has written a good number of inspiring Bible-based poems which are always a blessing to read. Any ardent follower of her blog can attest to that.
One cool morning recently, as I read one of her posts May Peace Rule Your Heart, I found myself flowing in an appreciative poetic anointing. So I left her these comments:
Ann, I cannot thank you enough
For all the wonderful lessons
I have learnt from your poems
Which are always inspired blessings
Every morning you get from God
Poems that leaves us greatly inspired
Reading them makes me smile
Indeed, you are greatly admired.
Ann, may the grace of God
Overflow more to you
So that you will always for us
With beautiful poems come through
May our glorious God in Heaven
Give you good health and longevity
Fill you with strength, joy, peace
And fulfilment without brevity
Please keep the flag flying
Keep your light shining bright
And to the God who inspires you
Keep holding on to Him tight.
The After Effect
That poem was my humble way of appreciating a humble woman of God who has consistently demonstrated that we can tap into the wisdom of God when we fellowship with Him through His Word.
When I penned the words of that poem into the comment section of the post, I wasn’t sure if she would like it or not. But thankfully she did like it!
Here was her comment after reading my comment:
WOW [Victor], you have blessed me so much with “your poem.” I was not expecting anything like that and have never received anything like it before.
Each day I pray for the Lord to inspire me and that He should send me something from time to time to quicken to my spirit that I am indeed doing this all for His glory and His purpose. Every now and then I get a word of encouragement from someone that confirms I am using my gift for Him. This not only confirms it but it solidifies this is w[h]ere God wants me.
Thank you again for giving me such a huge blessing. ~ Have a wonderful day with Jesus ~ Deborah Ann
Of course, Ann, I know you weren’t expecting it. But I had to do as I felt led to do. So I thank you for liking it.
Your poems always make my day. And I pray that your gift will continue to be used for the blessings of mankind and to the glory of God.
I decided to share my experience with your blog here so that my readers can be blessed and inspired too. I hope that one day you will publish a compilation of all your poems into a book for us to have.
Indeed, the Bible is right: he that blesses us is blessed. And when we bless others we are blessed too.
Is there anyone whose blog posts have greatly impacted your life? Why don’t you reach out and say a thank you to such one? You will make his/her day by doing so and also bring glory to God.
