Do As Unto The Lord

Do As Unto The Lord
Throughout problems to find employment
Being revealed of the big business picture
Speechless throughout my family and friends life
Seeking to execute the business for the Lord
Hoping to provide job opportunities to the marginalized
Impossible with current financial constraints
Being labeled as a crazy fellow

A business friend becomes my new boss
Takes me in and provide a working space
Her dry hands look dry and tired
Knowing her needs to relief her burdens
That’s my mission
Desire to relieve her
Colossians verse in my heart sprouts
Do as unto the Lord
Heartily
With a thankful heart

Inside my heart, I feel so grateful to my Lord Jesus and really appreciate the new boss to take me in from part-time to full-time basis without interview. I want to do my best as unto the Lord and to be a blessing to the new boss. I feel so humbled.

God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Wilt

Wilt

Will we care in our daytime job?
In cultivating and sharpening our skills?
Loving the job that we do as we do it unto the Lord
To bring glory to our Lord Jesus Christ who died for our sins to save us.

Romans 5:6-8 (KJV)
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Colossians 3:22-24 (KJV)
Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

“Work is tedious” came after my thoughts that writing is tedious. Inserting L into its acronym produce the acronym WILT where dictionary defines wilt:

  1. To become limp and drooping, as a fading flower; wither.
  2. To lose strength, vigor, assurance, etc

As I was reminded the above verses, finally and suddenly “the other acronym definition speaks to me.

Being challenged to describe goodness in an alphabetical poetry, the Scripture is the basis of my reference at

Matthew 6:1-7 (KJV)
Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Colossians 3:15-17 (KJV)
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

James 3:17-18 (KJV)
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Lacking Time

Realizing to do all my best unto the Lord

I can get too caught up in
Helping easily,
Organizing house easily,
Work hard easily,
Cleaning easily,
Tidying easily,
Honing my skills easily,
Reading easily.

Until I forget the time
When I take a look at my watch
My eyes pop out in disbelief
It is 5am already
I need to grab some sleep.

Oh, the time is not enough

The book of Colossians chapter 3 verse 16 to 17 is my motivation of doing things. I also need to take care of my own body. The above inspiration is birthed as I was doing things at night and trying to make sure that everything are in order.
