Please The Lord

Posted on

Thoroughly amend your ways
Thoroughly amend your doings
Thoroughly execute judgment
These please the Lord

Oppress not the stranger
Oppress not the fatherless
Oppress not the widow
These please the Lord

Shed not innocent blood
Walk not after other gods to your hurt
These please the Lord

Obey His voice
Walk in His ways that He has commanded
Acknowledging own mistakes
Confess your sins
Receive correction
These please the Lord

Today’s quiet time in reading Jeremiah 7 sounds so poetic. The poetry is just a summary of Jeremiah chapter 7. May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

This poetry births from Joshua 20:3c where The Lord provides shelter for those who accidentally take the life of others without any intent. However, it speaks to me that The Lord is my refuge from those who are jealous of me. There is nothing to be jealous of me. However, my cousin is jealous of me. My parents and siblings told me so. Her intellect and grade is much better than me. I feel hurt with her doings. But I see The Lord protects me from further hurts and protect my son and I when I was pregnant. I also see The Lord’s protection in my family life and destroy my mother in law’s evil scheme. She is trying to sow discord between my husband and I. Though I am do hurt with my husband blindness, something good comes out of it. I see his true colours. He is possessive and biased who do not check the matter out and sprout false accusations. Though i have been living in fear, I can only leave the matter into God’s hand and pray for the blood of Jesus to cover the family. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

While I walk towards my room, I had forgotten that the coffee table was moved onto the middle living room. It knocked hard onto my legs and I tried to cope with it. Realizing that humans have the tendency of being blind to own mistakes, it is the most essential part to look out in every human being. Hurt without realizing of own wrongdoings in darkness. This poetry birthed out of this painful experience then I left it for fifteen days before revising it again. Then I submit after revision. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

While waiting for dinner at the church building, some people used iPhone and Samsung galaxy note 10 for doing business. They used high end smart phone for its feature capabilities. But some people use it to show off without knowing its distinctiveness. Thus, these produced BP acronym. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

This acrostic idea also came when I was shredding papers. In every human being, there is a self defence mechanism to protect us from harm.

No broken promises from our Lord Jesus Christ
As we continue to hope in Him
Awaiting for Jesus’ second coming
Steadfast in our faith in Jesus

While reflecting on my four years of marriage, I have been keeping the promise my husband forced me to keep. Not to find jobs as counter staff, waitress, and even low pay jobs. Office jobs are allowed. He feels that I should work in the office because I studied until bachelor honours. Ten months of marriage, our baby boy arrives to this world. He asked me to stay as housewife for three months. Months passed to four years. The promise he made before marriage almost annulled due to my mother in law’s interference. Thank God for Him to protect the promise he made.

Upon returning to this again, I remembered God’s promises through the Bible; trust in His salvation and for waiting for His second coming.

When he gave me two options to care our son, it is all to his advantage. It’s like promises are broken. Heartache. It is like checkmate on the chessboard. When I reverse the two last words “broken promises”, BP is produced.

What type of pressure breaks us?
Does our breaking point help us to get close to God?
Does our breaking point help us to give glory to God?
Does our breaking point help us to be thankful?
Or
Does our breaking point lead us to the bottomless pit?

Writing diary is where I pour out myself into and can be honest with my feelings. Upon reaching to write down my painful child memories of being bullied and see my breaking point, breaking point jumped out to me. Then I realised that there is a breaking point, the weakest moment of our lives.

Bloodshed & Bloodbath

Posted on

Bloodbath on the land
The effect of war
Between two kings and/or presidents.
Shedding blood
For country issues.
Possessing other country
Protecting own country.

Bloodbath on the street
The effect of gang fights and gunfights
Between two leaders
Shedding blood
For territorial issues.
Possessing other territory
Protecting own land.

Bloodbath at the corner
The effects of catfights
Between two cats
Shedding blood
For territorial issues.
Possessing other territory
Protecting own land.

Bloodbath at houses
The effects of fights
Between two people
Shedding blood
For justice
For own family, friends, loved ones, assets and/or wealth.
Possessing those
Protecting those.

All in the name of
Possessions
And
Protections.

The sight of bloodbath on land between two countries appeared in my mind. The war TV drama that I ever watched before is producing fruits of poetry.

Flying Knives

Posted on

Flying knives
Of hurtful knives
Knives stab into your heart
Heart bleeds
Bleeds in pain
As
Blood oozes
Out of
The wounds.

Beware knives
Knives of hurtful words
Knives from behind
Knives of
Office politics.
Knives from
Friends.
Knives from
The evil one
The devil
Our real enemy.
Seek God’s help
Taking refuge in Him
Through Christ
His Son.

The idea of flying knives came about whenever I think of office politics. Then the feeling of the knives is related to the evil one. All I can do is to ask for God’s protection and find refuge in Him.

PR

PR - Pain of Rejection

PR – Pain of Rejection

Adam and Eve encountered pain of rejection
Rejection from God’s presence for eating the forbidden fruit.

PR - Pain Relief through People's Redemption

PR – Pain Relief through People’s Redemption

Our redemption through Jesus Christ.

The words ‘Pain of Rejection’ was lingering in my mind. It reminds me of Genesis 1 to 3. Since PR stands for ‘Public Relations’, ‘Permanent Resident’, and ‘Press Release’, ‘Puerto Rico’, ‘Progress Report’, ‘Public Radio’, and ‘Personal Relationship’.

Damaged RAM vs Dead Fish

Posted on

Blank monitor screen!
System failure!
Is it the motherboard?!
Diagnosing and troubleshooting.
Diagnosing and troubleshooting again.
OH! It is just
A bar of RAM is damaged!
Removing it
The computer system is alive again.

Floating, floating.
Floating around the aquarium.
A fish body is turned upside down.
OH! It is
A dead fish!
REMOVE!
REMOVE!
Or else,
The whole fishes will also die.

Smearing of conscience!
Darkness dispels out.
Dirt floats onto the river.
Unknown sin appears out.
REMOVE!
REMOVE!
Receive Christ,
Receive cleansing through His blood.
Or else,
Clear conscience deadens,
Covered in darkness,
Poisonous river,
Harming and affecting others.

At first, I thought that the motherboard was damaged. My heart felt down. As I was troubleshooting my computer CPU, I was reminded about the RAM. Then I tried removing each of the two bars of RAM. When I found out that a bar of computer RAM was the one affecting the whole system down, the above inspiration birthed out. Followed by the concept of a dead fish in the aquarium. My heart feels joyful and satisfied that my hard work is not in vain. Thank God for that.

Stench

Posted on

An unexplainable, inexpressible terrible stench
Pinches my nose deep to the core
My nostril follows the stench
Finally it tracks down the root cause
Of the stench’s real whereabout.

The stench is coming from
My toddler who is in deep sleep
Oh, he defecates while asleep.
Oh, the stench is indeed so unbearable
My nose is hurting inside
Immediately, take action to clean him thoroughly
And the smell slowly diminishes.

Sins and trespassing are also giving the people a terrible stench of death. It is liken to the above haiku. There is a need of the grace of God through Jesus Christ, the Saviour of our soul to clean our hearts, minds, and motivations of our actions. Through His blood we receive the cleansing of our soul. (Romans 5:13-15; 6:11-13)

As I opened my room door, the terrible stench pained my nostrils. Then I realized the smell came from my sleeping toddler and I immediately clean him and change his diaper. As I was changing his diaper, “An unexplainable terrible stench” ringed in my mind. As I calmed down on my bed, I penned down my visualization of my feelings. Today is finalization of the above inspired haiku.

A Picky Husband

Posted on
A wife seldom cooks food with oil due to her concern to eat healthily. So also seldom cook fried food. A dish of steamed tofu, steamed fish, and even baked prawn without greasing oil. Everyday, she drinks a cup of low-fat with high-calcium milk.
She is quite an opposite of her husband who loves to eat tasty food without considering whether the ingredients will affect his well-being. He hates milk and refuses to take vitamin pills. Her son states that her mum cooking deteriorates. All day, he comments the food’s taste is not salty enough and even not sour enough. Finally, he participates in the kitchen preparation. He remarks that in order to make a tasteful and refined dish, there is no need to bother whether the consumed food is harmful for the body. He even laughs her for always drinking milk, but his body is stronger than her though he smokes.
One day, his sore throat worsens a lot until he is scared causing him to stop smoking. Around one month later, he doesn’t feel well and decides to take a full body medical check up. He brings his wife along to do the same as him. One week later, the report shows his bone calcium is lacking and mild high blood pressure. It is quite a contrast with his wife whose bone calcium is high and her hereditary diabetes is under control. Ultimately, he forces himself to gulp vitamins and sometimes milk.
The moral of the story is
Stop criticising people.
Listen to advises.
Reflect your own words and actions before criticising others.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath
                                                                                                                  (James 1:19 KJV)
