当中 之中 Midst & Amongst

找白发在黑发当中
找贵人在小人当中
找好果在烂果之中
找干净水在脏水之中
是难免的是

难到不能
找优点在缺点当中
找对看法在错恶之中
寻找和睦相处在吵闹之中
很难吗?

来跟我
寻找神高羊在患乱当中
寻找光在黑暗之中
走在神的旨意当中
虽然辛苦
可是会有
平暗和喜乐冲满您的心
来赞美耶和华的名
来唱歌颂活神的名

Looking for white hair strands amongst black hair strands
Searching for good people amongst evil people
Picking fresh fruits in the midst of rotten fruits
Searching for cleanliness in the midst of dirtiness
All these are common traits in us

Is it difficult for us to
See good traits in others rather than their bad traits?
Find the right perspective in the midst of wrong perspective?
Pursuing peace after quarrel subsides?
Is it hard?

Come and
Seek the Lamb of God in the midst of our adversities
Pursue the Light in the midst of darkness
Walking in God’s will
Though it may seems difficult
But you will
Peace and joy will flood your hearts
Let’s sing praises to the Name above all names

My 39 months son pulled a strand of his dad’s white hair. Next day, he was looking for it but gave up due to too much white hair among the black hair. He was worried to pluck the black and the white hair at the same time. Upon observing this scene, this birthed out this poetry.

Upon writing this, I realized why people tend to take advantage of me. I talk too much of my weaknesses instead of my strengths. But I found my strengths from my good friends and friends. My weaknesses seem too clear for me without realizing others. No wonder I have low self confidence. Even though with my low self confidence, I find strength in Christ and to persevere. Gradually, my hard work pays off when I see my improvements. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

How many times a day do we seek God’s cleansing of our hearts?
To incline our will according to His will

Matthew 26:41 (NIV)
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Matthew 26:42 (KJV)
He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.

Finally, I brought my mother and son out to a plaza for a walk. After busy for work, I felt refreshed going out. In the restaurant, my mother habitually wipes chopsticks and spoons with tissue. My dad considers her being too clean. Then “Cleaning Department” came to me producing acronym CD.

Do we have the habit to shower daily?
Our daily shower helps to rid dirt from our bodies
Reading the Bible and wait upon God in the morning
Helps to clean us the dirt in our spiritual lives
Hope for God’s deliverance and Jesus’ coming
Cleans my heart out of the dirt
Daily cleaning my heart to trust in the Lord
Daily recharge from my Lord and Saviour

I just realized my habit. I enjoy staying in the bathroom because I love to take shower. It is a daily cleaning habit. When I think of daily cleaning, it is like a daily habit to clean myself spiritually and physically.

Cup

Cup

We are like a cup seeking to be filled.
Since our conscience is like a cup
Do we want our conscience to be smeared by blood or peace from Christ?

The source of inspiration originated from watching Batman Begins, Spiderman, and Superman movies. Followed by Jesus’ speaks in Matthew 6:3-5 (NIV):
“But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.” ”

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.

Water

Soak me in Your water
In Your Living Water
Just like a sponge soaked in the water
Drink deep in Your Word
Enter deep into Your Presence
How, to enter into your presence, O Lord?
How?
Please tell me.
Please guide me.
Please teach me.

To lead a clean life
Deep within my heart need to be clean
Deep within my heart need to be pure
And to walk according to Your Word.
Keep my heart pure, O Lord.

Why use the word “in”? In Christ, we find love, hope and strength in the brink of our soul’s destruction.
As I was re-washing my comb due to some dirt and tried to make it as clean as possible, the above second paragraph came to me as I was reminded of the book of Psalm 24:3-5 and 51:10

Psalm 24:3-5 (NIV)
Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior.

Psalm 51:10 (NIV)
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

As I searched the keyword, “pure heart”, the book of Hebrews guides us how to lead us into his presence in chapter 10 verse 21 to 23, “and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

God’s Words

Posted on

After GOD has redeemed me,
i was so dirty in sins’ stain in my life.
And GOD’s Words are like a
pure, clean, spring waters of rivers from the mountain top.
Can imagine i stand in the rivers of GOD’s Words
and all the waters splashes to me wholly and cleansed me slowly.
When my heart is soaked in the rivers of the Word of GOD and drink it,
slowly all my stains of sins are cleansed and even
my heart desires changed and
my heart is purged from the
stains of sins and slowly cleansed.
