"Unconditional Love" #PoemsFromGod
Unconditional love is not easy.
Unconditional love is hard work.
Unconditional love is soul-cleansing.
Unconditional love is responsibility, not a perk.
Unconditional love is the opposite of ego,
Unconditional love is a selfless gift,
Unconditional love is exciting and intriguing,
I'm always curious to see what else God enables me to give.
To love unconditionally, we must practice,
We must remember Christ and His sacrifice,
We must choose kindness when ego attacks us,
We must give without expectations - ego is love’s price.
And when we fail at it often or seldom,
We must reach out for God's grace,
And start all over, being intentional and not random,
And just remember why we decided to love in the first place.

"My Husband's Birthday" #PoemsFromGod
My husband's birthday is today,
I thank you for his life.
I ask for gifts with no delay -
Specifically these five.
Love that's eternal and unconditional,
Joy from knowing your word of truth,
Peace that's beyond understanding traditional,
Patience that helps with any distress or ruth.
Kindness is next in line for asking,
Kindness that he can receive and give,
Giving kindness from gratitude and not tasking,
Receiving kindness humbly and wanting in it to believe.
Four other gifts I'm also requesting:
Goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Thank you, God, for generously investing
Into my husband's birthday gifts, his eternity, and his soul.

"God, I Praise You" #PoemsFromGod
God, I praise you with my words and thoughts.
Glory to you for all your goodness!
I'm in awe to see blessings lots!
I reach out to you for life's fullness.
Satisfaction comes from finding grace.
You reveal the path in the Bible.
For your truth and wisdom I shout praise!
I worship you, experiencing clarity revival.
God, I praise you for the good and the bad.
For all my trials and tribulations.
I praise you when happy and when I'm sad,
For both my accomplishments and frustrations.
I praise you at night and when I'm eating,
When driving or walking or going to bed,
When cleaning, cooking, and when I'm reading,
And in the morning - for the day ahead.
I praise you, God, it's my act of worship.
I feel your love and I'm soaking in it.
Getting to know you is like courtship:
The closer you draw me, the more I commit.

"God, I Admire You" #PoemsFromGod
God, I admire you for who you are:
A good-good father and a sovereign king.
From your perfection I'm in genuine awe -
Beauty out of ashes you always bring.

I admire your kindness and amazing grace.
My everyday life is of your mercy evidence:
From every suffering you propel me to a better place.

"Your Plan Is Always Perfect" #PoemsFromGod
You said your plan is perfect.
Can I believe it, God?
Sometimes I feel in conflict,
With scope of trials so broad.
But then I look around,
I pay attention close,
And see your grace abound
In sorrow and in loss.
I trust your every vow,
Your Holy Word I trust.
Sometimes I wonder how
Your beauty comes from dust.
Your plan for me to prosper,
Have future and the hope
Wholeheartedly I trust in
And never will I stop.

"How To Love" #PoemsFromGod
You asked us to love one another.
You taught us the details of love.
Instructions you gave us are thorough,
But knowing them isn't enough.
To love one another with kindness
Means dying to flesh every day
And also surrendering our blindness,
While choosing in Spirit to your word obey.
To love one another with patience
Acceptance requires and yielding,
And selfless forgiving in all situations,
In prayer each other uplifting.
You told us that love is not proud,
Not arrogant, it's rather humble,
And so you requested each other we honor,
In hope persevere we, when stumble.
Your orders of love are high-maintenance,
But trusting in you, I surrender.
I'm learning to love with kindness and patience
To glorify you in your splendor.

"What Love Is" #PoemsFromGod Love is not a temporary feeling. Love is a commitment and a behavior choice. Love is a mindset of intentional healing. Love is that kind and patient inner voice. Love allows for acceptance and forgiveness. Love allows for plenty of mistakes. Love is an action, it's courageous and fearless. Love never fails and never forsakes. Love always honors and does good to others. Love is selfless and expects nothing in return. Love perseveres, even when it suffers. Love is a skillset we perfect as we learn. Love is a privilege for those who experience it. Love is a journey and a special pursuit. Love is challenging but it is resilient. Love is the first and foremost of the Spirit fruit. 8/23/17 © Anna Szabo, JD, MBA

Thank you, God, again for him, Thank you for his precious life, Bless him, Father, and redeem, In Jesus' name - his loving wife. 8/23/17 © Anna Szabo, JD, MBA
Forgiveness is a lifelong journey.
It's a decision to set people free
From the debt of offense they owe you,
Issuing them an intentional debt-free decree.
The beneficiary of that decree though is not them -
It's your heart that experiences liberation
From anger and bitterness as you no longer condemn,
So issue people the forgiveness decree with no hesitation.
Forgive people often or daily or even hourly.
Decide to quit taking the resentment poison.
Commit to letting go of grudges sincerely
And move light-heartedly toward your new horizon.

Marriage is a covenant and a forever-union,
Made by God to last for eternity.
It's a creation of an ongoing communion,
Where each is led by God to achieve maturity.
Marriage is a daily hard-work commitment
That requires selflessness and intentional sacrifice,
Challenges us to give each other Biblical treatment,
Encourage one another at our own ego price.
Marriage calls us to love unconditionally,
To give continuously and not to expect anything,
To be close friends it calls us, additionally,
And in the process - to God cling.
Marriage is a journey toward Godly holiness,
It's a pursuit of one another along with Christ.
And because marriage daily exposes our brokenness,
We can't do it without remembering Jesus' sacrifice.

"Standing on God’s Promises" #PoemsFromGod
Life is a series of seasons,
With moments of sorrow followed by happy moments.
To question God we have many reasons,
Especially, when facing some devastating disappointments.
Sometimes, we question God's very existence,
Or just His presence in our lives.
We may confront the idea of God's goodness with resistance,
Especially when grief our daily emotions drives.
Our emotions are not a very reliable source of information.
How we feel changes often too randomly.
That's why to confidently walk toward our destination,
We need to immerse ourselves in truth extendedly.
We need to understand and believe God's faithfulness.
We need to embrace His eternal promises.
We don't need to make them up or guess -
Reading His word is what confidence encompasses.
In the Bible, there are 3573 promises,
The word "promise" itself occurs 50 times.
End of suffering, protection, and forgiveness,
Peace and joy are guaranteed to us always and not just sometimes.
God's promises are the only solid ground to stand on.
Everything else is unstable and temporary.
His word is the truth for us to lean on,
So that our lives can be for His glory and extraordinary.

"My Life Is Such a Gift" #PoemsFromGod My life is such a gift. My life is such a blessing. I'm grateful for each day, Which I'm with joy professing. I'm grateful for the peace, I'm grateful that I'm healthy, For joy that may not cease, And being friendships-wealthy. I'm grateful for abundance Of food and drinking water, And clothing choices hundreds, And being God's own daughter. I'm grateful for each mentor Who time invests and wisdom To ground me and center In Gospel and God's kingdom. I'm grateful for awareness Of who I am in Jesus And for my journey's rareness. To love it I have reasons. My life is very special, And I am special also - I have a high potential, With Scriptures armed, I know so. 9/14/17 © Anna Szabo, JD, MBA
Life is an incredible journey of growth and learning.
Having realized it, I begin with gratitude every morning.
Giving thanks for all my blessings is very healing.
This one habit changed completely the way I’m feeling.
The fear I used to experience was replaced with calmness.
The anger I used to feel was replaced with warmness.
The depression I was suffering from was replaced with joy
As my mind to its full capacity I’ve learned to deploy.
When my mind is filled with gratitude, I can’t feel fear.
Thoughts of gratitude prevent anxiety and keep my mind clear.
Dwelling on my blessings leads me to experiencing genuine joy.
Practicing gratitude every day, I can finally my life enjoy.

"Blessings" #PoemsFromGod Blessings are those special people, things, or events to be grateful for. Some blessings help us get to a place that’s better than where we were before. Some blessings are unnoticeable, like unlimited clean drinking water. Others are very obvious because to us personally they truly matter. There are also blessings that, at first sight, appear to be a curse. Those are hard to recognize and wholeheartedly appreciate, of course. That’s where faith comes into play: in wonderful blessings we must believe! If we train our mind to seek blessings, a joyful life we can live. Blessings are everywhere - all we need is to intentionally look. Finding blessings in everything is not a skill taught at school, from a book. Finding blessings on purpose has to be our own habit every day. It will become easier with time, the more attention to blessings we intentionally pay. Count your blessings, appreciate how unique they are! Feel grateful, and you will undoubtedly reach for your special star. 5/5/18 © Anna Szabo, JD, MBA
"Mind Over Matter" #PoemsFromGod
Your thoughts create your future.
It happens every moment.
Your pain and wounds you suture
With every thought and comment.
You choose your thoughts with free will.
You are in charge of choosing.
Defeating thoughts your dreams kill.
Don’t be your thoughts misusing!
Decide to think of greatness.
Decide to think of joy.
Decide that you with gladness
Your thought life will enjoy!
No matter circumstances.
No matter wounds and pain.
Your thoughts are your advances.
They make or break your brain.
With healthy thoughts, you’re healing.
With harmful thoughts, you’re sick.
Bad thoughts can joy be stealing -
To cause you harm they’re quick.
So, choose to think of blessings,
And choose to think of grace.
Start gratitude expressing
With thoughts of joy and praise.
Your thoughts create your future.
It happens every moment.
Your pain and wounds you suture
With every thought and comment.

Joy is a feeling different than the feeling of happiness.
Happiness is temporary and is driven by external circumstances.
Joy is internal and is not defined by either power or helplessness.
Joy does not depend on our luck, health, career, love, or finances.
Joy is a mental and emotional state of complete contentment.
It’s a consistent acceptance of what is and what is to come.
Joy exists in the heart and mind that are free of resentment.
Joy brings our whole being back to life from being dead or numb.

Perseverance is about never ever giving up.
Every time you fall, you must quickly get up.
Perseverance takes courage and requires you to act in-spite of your fear.
When you choose faith over fear, you courageously persevere.
Perseverance is a cure for failure because there’s always that next chance to succeed.
If you commit to persevering no matter what, a victorious life you can lead.

Leadership is a big commitment and a heavy responsibility.
It takes more than just a natural talent or an inborn ability.
Leadership requires consistent internal work and ongoing evolution
In order to gain self-awareness and experience transformational revolution.
Leadership demands genuine humility and intentional meekness.
These behaviors are a discipline of internal strength and not a weakness.
Leadership dies from an inflamed ego, delusions of grandeur, and pride.
Leadership thrives on kindness, compassion, and empathy if applied.

"Career" #PoemsFromGod Career is more than just a job or a sequence of jobs. It’s an intentional combination of passion, obsession, and dedication lots! Career must be where our heart is, otherwise, we turn into walking dead. Without passion, we have no career, but merely a job instead. Having a career is a privilege and a very special blessing. You get to apply your heart and Intellect instead of just merely a paycheck chasing. Pursuing a career activates your internal resources and sets you on fire. Having a career, not just just a job, is everyone’s burning desire. 2/12/19 © Anna Szabo, JD, MBA
To live life means to be willing to fail.
Often, we try something great to no avail.
And it’s ok - not everything in life is a success.
Life is a journey, so from one stage to the next we must progress.
Failure is a part of such a journey, promoting growth.
Living life requires not either failure or success, but both!
Failure is a normal part of life we must accept,
Yet, our faith in success and our fortitude must be kept...

"No One Can Define You" #PoemsFromGod
Who has ever defined your identity?
What gave that person the power to define YOU?
To think that they know your potential and future is insanity.
Every day you’re growing, changing, evolving, and becoming new.
No one can define you. Ever.
Except one person on earth. You.
Commit to exploring who you are. Forever.
Allow your SELF to be different from what others ever knew.

Faith is a state of human being.
Without it, we can’t survive for long.
It’s when we’re future clearly seeing,
To greater plan when we belong.
Faith is a state of human soul,
Which has to feel eternal hope.
Without hope, there is an aimless hole,
Without it, with life we cannot cope.
Faith is a state of human heart,
Which longs for love and for affection.
Without faith, we quickly fall apart.
Without it, there is no genuine connection.
Faith is a state of human mind,
Which thrives on certainty and clarity.
Faith gives us promises of every kind:
Forgiveness, freedom, and prosperity...
Faith is the key to joy and peace.
Faith is essential to salvation.
Faith helps our fortitude increase.
Faith is life’s solid foundation.

"To My Spiritual Sister" #PoemsFromGod
You look and talk so different,
Yet, we are much alike.
In Russia raised you weren’t,
Yet, you I really like.
We have the same perspective.
We help each other out.
Our friendship is effective -
Hard things we figure out.
We influence each other.
We help each other heal.
Though we don’t have same mother,
My sister you’re for real!
Our sisterhood is sacred.
It’s spiritual, divine.
With you, I can get “naked” -
With truth, we both align.
