No To Who?

No heat is lost
No wind
Blow the flame away
Flame dissipates into darkness
Atmosphere becomes cold
Who are we becoming?
No to Who inside of Christians?

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.

Problems often occur among people. This produced PIP acronym. According to Oxford Learner’s dictionary, pip means (1) The small hard seed that is found in some types of fruit (2) A series of short high sounds, especially those used when giving the exact time on the radio. The synonyms of pip are seed, stone, pit. The free dictionary defines pip as the stone of soft fruits such as peaches and plums. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Upon understanding and pondering the meaning of Pip, it takes six days to birth the poetry out. Using devour word will give a much greater impact compared to swallow. Kick is a stronger words rather than leave. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Dark pit
Pit full of darkness
Abyss of darkness

Welcoming the new dawn
As the sun sparkles the forest
Forest full of fresh air
Sparkling flowers

Sparkling grasses
Beautiful scent
Singing chirping birds
Lions and lambs sit peacefully
Peaceful atmosphere
Burst with praises to God
Bow in worship to the Lamb of God
Awaiting the new world.

This began with,
“Dark pit
Pit full of darkness

Sag

Sag

Joseph’s faith is remarkable.
He refuses to yield to temptation.
The reason is out of love.
Out of love not to sin against God.
Sag will weaken our spiritual life.
Sag will open our hearts to the evil one.
That’s why Lord Jesus Christ told a man and a woman to stop sinning.

Genesis 39:7-9 (KJV)
And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

John 5:14
Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

John 8:11
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Suddenly, “sinning against God” produces the acronym of sag. Oxford advanced learner’s dictionary defines sag as the abbreviation of screen actors guild and also

  1. To hang or bend down in the middle, especially because of weight or pressure
  2. To become weaker or fewer

What do we do when nobody is seeing?
Our lives are seen by An Invisible Being.
Our lives are written into a book.
By the Creator of this universe.

Revelations 3:4-6 (KJV)
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelations 13:7-9 (KJV)
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear.

Revelations 17:7-9 (KJV)
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

Revelations 20:11-15 (KJV)
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelations 21:26-27 (KJV)
And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

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.

Walk

In the past,
Walk in the abyss of darkness
Walk in accordance of our upbringing
Walk in accordance to our flesh
Walk in accordance to our notions
Walk based from our emotions
Walk arrogantly.

Now, Receiving Christ,
Walk in God’s light
Walk worthily of the Lord
Walk in love
Walk as children of Light
Walk wisely
Walk in accordance to His will
Walk humbly before Him

By loving one another
Living peacefully
Living by caring for one another
In His light and strength.

Deeply Ingrained Memories

Deeply ingrained memories
Memories kept in a box
Unravelling the box of memories . . .

Memories of love
Memories of friendship
Memories of happiness
Memories of joyfulness
Memories of gladness
Memories of peacefulness
Memories of living on the mountains.

Memories of rejection
Memories of hurt
Memories of sadness
Memories of frustrations
Memories of depressions
Memories of despair in life
Memories of darkness in life
Memories of living in the dark valleys.

All these are a parcel of life.
Trust in God, o my soul.

New Opportunity

As the sun exits
As the sun hides
Darkness falls
Shadows upon the grasses
Darkness cover the earth

When the definite time arrive
The sun will awake
The sun will rise
Filling the earth with
Warmth and brightness.
It is the dawn
Of a new day.

A new day is
A new opportunity to
Lead a holy life
That is pleasing to
God, our Creator.
Seize this good opportunity.
Let us put on
The good fight of faith.
For life is full of
Strife and struggle.
Come on,
Do not be discouraged,
Brothers and sisters of faith.

One day, it will lead to perfection. My hope is to encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ and myself to continue in their faith.

Revenge

Hurting heart
Crying heart
Face turns red
Smoke churns out
From red ears
Driven by anger

Climbing mountains hastily
Holding a spear
Clenching teeth noisily
Seeking revenge upon
The perpetrator
To avenge beloved’s death

The darkness of
Humans hearts needing
Salvation to show
Light, truth, love
Through God’s forgiveness
His beloved Son
Sent to save
His creation created
In His image.

A response inspiration for the Walt Disney animated movie “Brother Bear”. But from here can see the dark side of humans’ hearts who needs God’s light, love & truth to save, instruct, and guide.

Blind & Eye

The blind leading the blind
The blind leading the eye
Instead of
The eye leading the blind

The blind leading the eye
So both fall into the pit
Pit of darkness

To the blind
Please heed the eye’s instruction
Do not insist your ways
Spare the agony
Be thankful
To the eye.


Inspiration On: Saturday, 22 September 2012 from 10:52am to 11:04am

Whenever I thought of my husband’s words about his problem at work, the above first inspiration comes. His supervisor insisted in doing his own ways rather than listening to my husband’s advises so delays occurred upon the construction work. Then the Scripture came upon me, Matthew 15:14 is the source of my inspiration. And I realise how many times we should not ignore counsels and warnings from those who live longer than us.

Abyss of Darkness

In the abyss of darkness
Someone gropes
Fingers clutch rocks
Attempting to climb
Looking for exit
But futile attempts
Crying for help.

In the abyss of darkness
Another person keeps still
Enjoying the darkness
Atmosphere of darkness
Hoping to cover
Hidden sins.

It all started with the words “In the abyss, A man gropes in darkness” as I was walking on the road. The two men at the cross, beside Jesus, had different mindset though both fell into sin – a repentant and unrepentant sinner. Please refer to Matthew 27:38, Mark 15:25-28, Luke 1:79; 23:33-43, John 3:19; 19:18 to understand the above inspiration.

Amazing Contrast

A bottle of Poison

Posted on

A bottle of poison
On the wooden table

Jealousy is likened to drinking poison
Poisonous to the soul and spirit
Spiritual darkness overcome whole being
Deeply ingrained into the heart
From inside to outside
Leading to hurting the innocent

Both parties are deeply hurt and wounded
A dark figure chuckles at that sight
And enjoying the drama
Drama of fights
Fights among people.
Sneering them.
Unheard evil laugh
In the invisible dimension.

Suddenly, the above visuals came upon me during my quiet time. Later on, I tried to express it in words.

Dark Dungeon

Posted on

Deep in the remote mountainous forest
A worn down dark dungeon is seen
It is used for locking the prisoners

In every dark cubicle prison in the creepy dark dungeon
Out of the window bar hears
Howling wolves across the mountain
Gawking, cawing crows resting on the trees
Hissing rattling snakes on the grasses
Snarling bears growl upon its preys

In the dark dungeon
Screeching door bar opens to give food
Squealing rats running across the sandy floor

During foggy days
Writhing in pain longing for fresh air
Prisoners are gasping for breath

Darkness envelopes the heart, soul, and mind of the prisoner
Dread clouds the heart, soul, and mind
Deep down inside is gripped by anxiety
Shuddering with the notions of death
Mind churns with uncountable worries
Whole being are engulfed with fear
Fingernails scratch the unsmooth wall
Insecurity spurs and creeps into the heart
Helpless of owns situation
Hoping for help
But some love the darkness

Suddenly noticing an immense bright Light
Shining through the tiny window
Staring outside the tiny window
Hand stretches out of the window bar
Hoping to embrace the Light
Hoping for the Light to fill the whole room
Hoping for the Light to fill the sullen and crushed spirit

As soon as the sunrise
Imminent light shines into the tiny window bar
Providing warmth to the prisoners
The warmth through God’s grace and mercy
Grace and mercy through faith in Lord Jesus Christ.

The above photo is taken on Saturday inside my bathroom experimenting what will happen if I did so. Finally, a contrast picture was produced.

Whenever I saw the first successful lomography photo onto the Fujifilm Instax Mini, my heart is filled with gratitude to God for blessing me with the determination to persevere even though i had failed for twelve attempts. I feel encouraged and sudden words of inspiration came upon me.

Imagining living in a locked dark dungeon without light is a devastating sense. After the commencement of the inspiration day, daily sentence(s) cropped out of my visual interpretations of those who live in darkness. Some are seeking light and hope, but some choose the life of darkness and hated to live in the light. (John 1:1-15)

Thanks to Hikari for sharing the word “shudder” making more impact to the above poetry.

Suddenly, the word, “seed” echoing in my mind as I was pondering in developing character that will please the Lord.

Inspiration from

  1. Galatians 5:22-24 (KJV)
    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
  2. Ephesians 5:9-11 (KJV)
    (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
