Remember Rapture

Do anyone remember the rapture or the events that would take place during it?

At first,let me give answer to the question of ‘what is rapture?’.Rapture means ‘caught up’.It is derived from the Latin word ‘rapturo’ which means to be caught up.It is a belief adopted by Christians.It entails the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to bring the Saints to the kingdom.

Features of the Rapture

  • It is a sudden event
  • It would cause confusion in the world.
  • It is unexpected
  • It has no set time

Since this event has no set time,then Christians who would like to reign with him should be ready and prepared at all times of their lives. People who are still sinning would not be caught up on that day.You may be wondering why it seems very much important to be caught up with Christ. This is because raptured souls would be free from every form of sorrow, commotion,suffering,sickness,diseases,etc. that would affect the world.

Christians are enjoined to live their lives more like Jesus to be able to reign with him.

10 Steps To Becoming A Poet

Growing up as a teenager,I had always wanted to be a poet.When I read poems written by great poets,I tell myself “why can’t you write your own poem,it looks so easy to write a poem”.

To many people, poems may look very easy to compose when they are being read but trying to compose one by yourself seems difficult.You do not know how to start or where to start from.

Not to worry,in today’s post I’m looking at the 10 steps to becoming a poet.

Before moving ahead to take these steps,you should be a lover and reader of poems.

Your #1 step is to know your subject matter.Without this basic step you may find it hard to write anything because your poem centres on it.

Having taken this step,you can move ahead to the other steps:

  • Pick up your pen
  • Write out all your ideas on the subject matter in a separate sheet of paper.It doesn’t really matter if they are not very much arranged.Just write them down as it comes to your brain.
  • Re-arrange your ideas starting from the least important to the most important.For instance, a poem about your mother may begin by mentioning the role of your mother in your birth,cradle and childhood.
  • Organize your arranged ideas (using figures of speech) into lines and stanza.
  • Proof-read your poem for mistakes and errors. You may use poems (related to your subject matter) by great poets to compare.
  • Share your poem with others,probably your friends, relatives. You may submit your poems on poem publishing platforms like Poe2gether.
  • Do not stop at just one.Continue to write poems, remember “Practice makes perfect “
  • Make your mind open to ideas.Think outside the box.
  • Write at least a poem a day no matter how short it looks.

The steps I just gave has helped me in learning to write poems and I think it would be helpful to you also if you follow them carefully.

Remember,becoming a great poet does not happen in a day.It takes a lot of effort.

O My God

O my God

You are who you are

None is like you are

None to compare with your glory

Or to tell the story

Of your creation

O my God

You formed all thing

Out of nothing

But by your word

And only you my Lord

Will I worship

O my God

You know all time

You shape all time

To work with your plan

In all the span

Of the world

O my God

You are one forever

None to contend with you, never

None to stand in your holy place

But all to praise

Your hallowed name
