TITLE: What Does It Mean?

Just what does it mean to be blessed?
Must you pass a special test?
We like to think its some good thing
Special joy for us to bring:
A marriage that is strong and true,
Children that are a joy to you,
We are so thankful for good health,
Enough, neither poor nor great wealth,
Meaningful work, worth to ensure,
A home where we can feel secure,
Friends whose company we enjoy,
Lack of instances that annoy.

Now, at the beatitudes look.
You will find them in Godís book.
Itís good in spirit to be poor.
Claiming Godís Kingdom all the more.
How can mourning ever be good?
God will comfort, He said he would.
To be humble means we wonĎt shun
An honest evaluation.
Hunger and thirst for righteousness
For a filling continuous.
When to others mercy you show
Godís special mercy you will know.
If you would see God face to face
A heart thatís pure must be in place.
If to make peace is your desire
Being called Godís child youíll acquire.
To be persecuted expect,
The kingdom of God, your prospect.

Godís answer may not be our choice,
Still we should praise Him and rejoice.
The worldís values are different
Than what the Beatitudes meant.
Multiple choice they are not.
Complete obedience should be sought.
To follow Jesus is the best,
Only way to be truly blessed.

This is a delightful poem. I could feel the passion in your words. Some of the lines seemed a tad out of sync but I'm not great at meter. Perhaps reading it aloud might help. Your words touched my heart and I have no doubt that God has great things in store for you. You have blessed me with your words and I thank you for that. Nice job.
