*** To God be the Highest praise and Glory, forever and ever, amen.

--------------------------------------- My dear friends in Soup, I want to express my gratitude to your continuous support despite my absence and failure to answer, reply promptly to your comments.. I am busy with some personal matters and so need to rest my pen for awhile but from time to time I peek to Soup for contests, my stay here in PoetrySoup helped me lots in improving my English. It enriched my vocabulary. My interest to be more knowledgeable and aware in grammar and syntax has also improved this is being displayed when we do our lines.... The constructive as well as the "challenging" criticisms I received in the comments and mails pushed me more to be the writer I am now... I thank you all.. rest assured that once am done with my review ( and pass it), I will surely visit your page and also leave my review... =`) God bless us all.. =`)~OLive Eloisa 

YOU ARE GOD and I HAVE TO BELIEVE My dear Father God above the heavens high ever loving and ever faithful in loving me even though, I am being sinful, stubborn, and disobedient to follow Your call and will... I am really sorry for the times I failed but I surely want to ask, how do I know if the decisions I am pursuing are Your will? How do I know that amidst deafening silence it is Your resilient but gentle voice I am hearing? It's long while now that I was taught to pray but to Your eyes, are my prayers correct? Are you really listening intently to them? Why at times You only answer me when all are black, when all my plans are disrupted, unruly and crooked? Why at times You are letting me wait, for hours, days, weeks, months and even the length of a lifetime? I humbly want to thank You for the roof o'er my head, the food I am able to eat and enjoy in every meal, the trials and tests You and I joined to pass, the steady beating of my heart telling me: I'm alive. I adore You, each breath that passes from my lungs, I want to thank You, honor You, praise and glorify You but how do I know that I am doing these alright? Is it enough that I simply attend a Church service? And there I reply amen, sing or shout Your Holy Name? Or I do better by loving sincerely other people? I, sharing in loving- kindness the blessings You abundantly are raining down in my life... Do I brush a smile or a laughter to Your cheeks when I give alms to the poor? Or more when I offer freely and wholeheartedly a hug, an embrace, an ear my time to someone who is afraid, lost, sick or sad? Or most of my deeds result to I painting often a frown on You? Or worse I pierce Your big, big heart when I don't even recognize Your goodness to me. Oh forgive me, forgive me please Father God... Scientists, religious persons and even my parents have described You to me but when O when, when will I ever have that chance to behold Your face? When will I have some minutes to hold or touch You? My heart and my spirit longs of Your gracious presence, of Your awesome essence. I am overwhelmingly blessed when in my everyday I am treated by others fairly. but-- are they the signs that will whisper: You are always with me? From the perfumed air of budding roses or ripened fruits to drumbeats of rain and prickly strikes of the sun are they the ones You want me to feel, smell, and see `cause they speak the beauty and love You have for me? I believe and love You my Almighty Father God but is this enough for me to be saved after death? My being is happy that You came and spelled freedom and into my own hands lies the crucial choice to either believe You or not. . . ___________________________________________________________ CONTEST NAME: ARE YOU THERE GOD Contest Sponsor: Silent One ~~3rd Place~~ but to God be the Highest Glory! ~~POEM OF THE DAY - October 15, 2015~~ but to God be the Highest glory!

An excellent beauty is seen in your prayer. i had many questions like you previously. As i believe prayers must always be correct. Prayer is the roof o'er all's head surely. Attending a Church service is needed to wash mind and soul always and His blessings abundantly are raining down on all always and He is always with all. A glorious poem, my fav. One thing i want to say you that i have learned many things of English literature from P.S. So, i always love. Loved always my lovely friend,bl
