My Only Hope


It is my only hope that my VOICE which
Has been heard from the east to the west
Will resonate to what I believe will come.

This world can’t continue as it has been.
We need the faith of God, our Maker to
Bring reconciliation back to our people.

I have lived long enough, throughout all
Of my heartaches as well, to know that
Mankind recognizes these atrocities.

How much more do you want to disobey
God that brought you into the world?
It’s ridiculous to think any other way.

Man was to take care what God had once
Created; beautiful, magnificent, and awesome.
Our responsibility is ours to tend to his flock.

It is the ones that bear strength, courage and
Bravery; the ones that see this to the very end;
Within repercussions of a war to destroy evil.

Blinded By the Sun



Never did see it coming-
The glare of the sun
The change of the season
Then struck suddenly with force.

Next thing that I knew-
The damage to my vehicle
The calls to authorities
Then glad that no one was hurt.

Deep Insight

Social networker in quotes         Carol Kappes in unquote

This came as a result of social networking and talking on various levels. It is edited in the way that I wanted to bring the deeper insights that transpired as we were messaging.

“You have deep insight into life and into the people you speak with. That is a gift from God.”

I do get into people’s emotional states.

“You are an amazing passionate, spiritual, deep, sensual, compassionate, caring, sharing, loving, and seductive mysterious woman.”

That deeper love is God’s love.

“It’s when two people agree and believe in God. This is the only way two people can grow and become closer and become like one.”

Everyone is either on their own or with God. You get that free choice.

“You and I are with God. One must be Christ centered to have a fulfilling life and to enjoy life and be happy.”
“We seek things and people in life we may never have, Right? We go deep to try and find that one who will make us happy or turn us into a fantasy we always wanted.”


With conclusion I am leaving Scriptures that correlated to this verse.


1 Corinthians 2:9-13     But just as it is written, THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAD NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM” for to us God revealed them through the Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man, except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

Ephesians 3:4-5  By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit.

John 15:4 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”

Acts 17:24-28 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would SEEK him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, “We are his offspring.”

Redemption


Finding forgiveness in the past mistakes

Finding peace in the midst of conflicts

Finding love in the search for truth

Finding faith in the grasp of understanding

Finding hope in the things of despair

It Is By Our Faith and Belief



I have been social networking on LinkedIn with this member for awhile and noticed the likeness of his thoughts to mine. He is from Kenya, Africa (Islam) and I am an American citizen (Christian) living in Minnesota, USA. As an expressive writer/author I get into the depth of people’s minds, and try to get deeper into how far they have reached. I am blessed to have their voice.

Social Networker in quotes              Carol Kappes unquote

THE INTERVIEW


I am a Christian…are you Islam?

“I am Muslim but a unique one.”

You tend to enjoy the Christians? Am I right? I see this in you.
Anyway…we all share the same God…who is loving and brings peace. It is our faith and belief…that we know God.

“I don’t enjoy them I create awareness to the lost in the Dark Muslims to realize, appreciate, value, and honor the Christian Brethren for through the role of Lady Mary was the actual existence and continuity of Islam prevailed.”

And religion has nothing to do with that. Right…there are even dark Christians! Lol.

“Actually that’s the salient point I am trying to make…what is definition of religion anyways”

Yes; Mary was a chosen Mother.

“It’s simple…religion is lifestyle. One is either conscience of God in ones’ life or one is a companion of the devil. To me only 2 religions exist in this world…the party of God and the party of Satan.”

I’ve talked with a few Indians (India) and they have spiritual beliefs as I do of God. Some are like-minded to me as well.

“Cool”

It was then at this time that I had showed a page from my book, To Hear Your Voice.  Written on page 58 was a verse titled Two Forces. The first line of the verse is this: God or Satan? And there was 14 more lines written.


“I told you…in today’s world…either one is a Zionist easier said or not. Which is what I am unmasking…right from my own blood relatives.”

I was thinking you were/had knowledge like me spiritually. Interesting.

“Wonderful…that’s exactly the conclusion I made from above. Indeed a coincidence.”

I’ll see you in Heaven one day! Chances are not on earth…unless I see your picture.

“I hope so Carol…it’s a constant struggle to win over the devil.”

My book is my own authenticity…my words only.

“That’s awesome. Carol, you asked me a tricky question.”

Now you know why you are a unique one.

“Need to step out now, time as prayer time is approaching.”

Authors/writers do ask questions. Ttyl…have a good evening.

“Thanks, you too.”


IN CONCLUSION


James 2:19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe-and shudder.

John 20:29  Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.

John 11:40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

Ephesians 6:16 In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

I Am The Universe


I shall love myself
For I am the universe
Deeper than most imagine
Filled with worlds
Encompassing love
Under skies of serenity
Where magic and mystery
Co-exist with reason
Few dare explore
Even fewer delve
Beyond their own dreams
To see my reality
For I am the universe
I shall love myself

(Social Networker sent this to me.)

This particular verse had been shared to me by an author whom I have had the privilege to receive messages as we have been social networking. When he sent this to me, I had to tell him my thoughts:

It describes that you understand yourself. You’ve seen a higher depth…like spirituality and wisdom.

“Yes, you understand it, and also me!”

This is how I read it. We are like-minded. This is why you relate to me. Our best friends…are those who understand us.

“And you to me.”

Yes.

“Thanks, my friend, for being out there somewhere. I am blessed to have made your acquaintance!  I look forward to your poetry in my world!”

Thanks.

Wisdom Comes Through


Your relationship with God will
Only make you stronger.

Watch for His signs and gifts-

Takes away things as worry,
Doubt, anxiety, depression

Lightens your burdens, roadblocks,
Waywardness, tragedy, sickness

Gifts you with knowledge, wisdom,
Understanding, perseverance

Comforts you in faith, hope, love,
Peace, joy, life

The Life We Do Live



This is an interview that took place on LinkedIn posting and commenting. This interview came to me when I was replying to what was being said.

Social Networker in quotes                          Carol Kappes unquote

THE INTERVIEW


“Live the life you have imagined.” (HENRY DAVID THOREAU)

I do in my mind; but this earthly life…doesn’t always abide.

“I know the feeling all too well, Carol. There are times the pebble in our shoes create a challenge in our journey. And we become a different person from the friction and resistance we have along the way.”

Beautiful way you just said this! How true. It is according to God’s plans…not always our plans.


When I finished this conversation; I thought of the Bible verse of Isaiah 55:8-9
NKJV

{“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.” Declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”}

Since I have been writing; God’s VOICE is much better than my VOICE. I see this so many times with some of the verses that I have written when they came into my mind.

Through My Eyes


If I could give you one thing in life,
I’d give you the ability to see yourself
Through my eyes; only then would you
Realize how special you are to me.

If you were a movie, I’d watch you
Over and over again.
