I attend a night service. The preacher shares about the importance of prayer through the power of the Holy Spirit. Altar call welcomes everyone to receive God’s help and blessing. Thus I respond to the altar call for God’s help in my life. In my heart, I ask the Lord for forgiveness upon me. Someone doctored my resume so that the government can give me grant. The course teacher mentioned his company needs help. I respond that I would like to be part of the project. However, after I attend the 3 days course, he forgets his promise. I don’t want to get into trouble with the law. I ask the Lord for discernment and wisdom. I will not believe into people’s empty promises of job opportunities. This happened outside of Japan.

Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

god-jar

Put it in your God Jar
forget it
it’s not your problem
anymore.

Don’t take it out
and look at it again
worry some more
just write the problem down
put it in your God Jar
and forget it.

It’s God’s Miracle.

Wallowing in Worry

Oh, how we love to wallow in worry
fretting over this or that
refusing to turn to God
who promises peace.

What masters of complaint
have we become
critical, judgmental
never satisfied.

Our Lord promises us
peace, joy, life abundant
if we but follow
Him in sweet surrender.
The choice is ours.

Let them be
don’t try to change a thing
butterflies emerge unaided
you need only enjoy their beauty

When we accept another as they are
we can give no better gift.

hand in hand

Do not praise me
thus leading me down
the path of pride.

Do not give me riches
lest I think I am
better than others.

Instead, teach me humility
how to love as You do.
Let me walk with my
hand in Yours
always with compassion
and mercy for all.

What does the Bible mean by “dying to self”?

Self to die? How? Read Michael’s articles.

altruistico

The concept of “dying to self” is found throughout the New Testament. It expresses the true essence of the Christian life, in which we take up our cross and follow Christ. Dying to self is part of being born again; the old self dies and the new self comes to life (John 3:3–7). Not only are Christians born again when we come to salvation, but we also continue dying to self as part of the process of sanctification. As such, dying to self is both a one-time event and a lifelong process.

Jesus spoke repeatedly to His disciples about taking up their cross (an instrument of death) and following Him. He made it clear that if any would follow Him, they must deny themselves, which means giving up their lives—spiritually, symbolically, and even physically, if necessary. This was a prerequisite for being a follower of Christ, who proclaimed…
