New "My Form Created" Poem

 Soul Rewards


I've often wondered what I work towards
In obeying what His word commands
Now it's clear to me, it's for soul rewards

For in my actions each day He records
To this I pray I be where He planned 
As I've often wondered what I work towards

I do know faithfulness He awards
In this my being greatly stands
As it's clear to me, it's for soul rewards

To my obedience and trust in Him
I believe this work is pleasing my soul
As to joy my being sings a hymn

This deep down reward has become my goal 
Wondering how I functioned without
As this feeling does make my being whole

When in life others questioned what it's about
I've often wondered what I work towards
But now my soul praises Him with a shout
As it clear to me, it's for soul rewards

Thoughts: In life we are in a race to the end. Some will make it and some will drop out before even getting close to the finish line. The end in obeying and having faith in the Lord will be greatly rewarded. Our soul will shine in right-....-ness with a brand new body. "Do you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified" (1 Corinthians 9:24-27. NKJV).  It's kind of like: Do what you preach or walk what you talk. What good is it to talk or preach something yet one doesn't do it. Even when it seems your at a holt or not moving forward in your obedience and faithfulness towards the Lord, He knows and sees you. Moreover, your being is maturing and shinning more and more in soul rewards.
