 I ask myself lately this question. What is that?  Does God my full attention. Not to complain. Not to right others’ wrongs. Am I giving Him all of me so I can do His perfect and pleasing will. With the anchor of God, each day is a reset. Daily I need to step into His word and live it out. When I veer, pain is on its way. I desire the candy of life, but it leaves me hungry for the food that nourishes. I need the broccoli and beef not Swedish fish or Sour Patch Kids. As much as I like the latter, it leaves me yearning not long after being consumed. Satisfaction comes from hard work. It comes from doing the necessary. It comes from the silent determined face that is quiet that speaks without uttering a word. 

In Your prescience

I look up

I don’t join

In worldly arguments

I just persevere 


Vengeance is 

Not mine

My job

Is here

To complete

With these keys

You’ve put 

Before me


  1. Love this. We're so accountable to God. I often find it crazy how Christians spew hate for each other and with the same mouth praise God.

  2. Oh..everyday can be a personal battlefield. All the best to your writing!

  3. People used to be kinder. It seems everyone is so angry anymore. I refuse to be angry.

    Have a fabulous day, Regine. ♥

  4. "I desire the candy of life, but it leaves me hungry for the food that nourishes."

    Said beautifully, R.

  5. True words written in this post. I feel the same way. Everyone is so angry anymore. I'm trying my best not to be the same way.

  6. Hi Rue, I am catching up today, not been creating much lately, life has been busy. You are on a very creative roll, enjoyed reading your blog today. Take care, Donna

  7. Dearest Regine,
    Indeed, satisfaction is truly derived from hard work.
    Your very last sentence very well describes my Pieter, how he has completed all the hard chores in his life... without uttering a word.
    Trying hard to kind of honor him in my late postings.

  8. Oh, I am encouraged by these lines of verse! Thx.

  9. Descobri este site essa semana e já estou adorando os conteúdos, são ótimos!

    Parabéns! 👏

  10. Such powerful words! I appreciate your lovely writings and thank you. Have ablessed rest of the week.

  11. I like this a lot R. I'm learning not to join in with the arguments of the world - there are so many and so many are tempting especially lately.

  12. This is so good Regine. I tend to go for the sweets in food and other things too, when broccoli would be better for me.

  13. Ahhh...sweet tempting. I've a sweet tooth and I do go for what is not good for me.

  14. So true Regine - the 'candy' of this world, no matter how appealing, never truly satisfies as God does.
    Stay safe

  15. A great deal of Truth in your words here...indeed there are so many things to tempt us from our path in this world, and we all fall under their spell at some time in our lives.
    Yet deep inside, we know the difference between what is good for us and what isn't.
    A wonderfully inspiring post, dear friend...thank you so much!😊😊
    Hugs xxx
