Immerse into the deep living water of Jesus
Awakened to live a life for Him alone
Refreshing my soul and spirit from the clutch of death

O Sleeper

O sleeper
Wake up!
Arise!
Resurrect!
In the power of the Holy Spirit
Received upon accepting
Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour
Accepting His Lordship in your lives

O sleeper
Are you awakened?
Have you arisen from your sleep?
Do you resurrect from death?
Are you alive?

Praise God’s holy name
Worship Him
Declare His goodness
Count His blessings
Walk in His statutes, precepts and principles
Live in Him
Breath in Him
Depend on Him
As the branches are dependent on the vine
Trust Him to deliver
Bless His holy name
Above all
Fear and Love the Lord

Bait

Posted on

Oh, we are like fishes in the pond
Swimming with enjoyment
Until
A hook with worm
Suddenly rolls down
Tempting fishes to
Take the bait
Bait to be devoured
Bait to death and destruction

Hooks of the devil
Snares of the devil
Traps of the devil
Wiles of the devil

Temptations from the devil
Deserve our attentions to beware
Deserve our attentions to guard ourselves
Deserve our attentions to seek God’s intervention

To stand strong in our faith
To stand with Jesus’ strength
To please our Lord
As the ambassadors of gospel
To be the vessel of Light

Do we ignore God’s Words and choose to fall into temptations?
Or
Temptations are overpowered with our choices to stand in His Words?


Inspiration On: Thursday, 31 October 2013 from 9:12am to 4:26pm

The second stanza came first followed by the rest. But the first stanza birthed out upon ending all stanza. First stanza’s purpose and idea came from second stanza with word “hook”. It was an allegory to depict human’s frailty needing of God’s strength.

Thud

Loud THUD!
Numerous thick books on the
Top curvy plywood drops onto
Numerous books on the
Lower curvy plywood breaks onto
Numerous books on the
Third curvy plywood
Except books on the
Bottom straight wood are intact

Piling stones of burdens

Eventually
Wear us down

Losing hope to live
Death seems feasible solution

Stop!
Stop thinking of
Swift solution
Saviour is nigh to the
Broken hearted

Suddenly, a loud thud caught my parents’ and my attention. The uppermost bookshelf fell hard onto the second level. Second level affects the third, but leaves the lowest unscathed. Oh! This stressed me out. I just applied for another job because my current job isn’t enough for my food expenses. Somehow, this incident speaks to me about the heavy burdens mankind carry on their shoulders.

Too or Warm

Too hot
Bacteria dies
Choo! Choo!
Steam evaporates
Out of the kettle mouth
Boiling water
Death is impeccable
Impossible place for humans, living things and creatures

Too cold
Below zero degrees
Bacteria dies
Freeze
Ice covers kettle
An enormous ice cube swarm kettle
Death is impeccable
Impossible atmosphere for humans, living things and creatures

Not too hot
Not too cold
Warm atmosphere
Everything in moderation
Bacteria survives
Mankind’s survival
Living things and creatures survive

Such a simple yet profound
Principles and beauty of
God’s amazing handiworks

SOS

SOS
SOS-2

Loving us too much
He willingly sacrifice Himself
To rescue us from death
Death from sins
To give us eternal life

Philippians 2:6-16 (KJV)
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Suddenly, inserting O into the words “self sacrifice” produced the acronym of SOS. Then the idea to improvise came into place. Thank God. Because SOS stands for Save Our Soul. As I was going to upload schedule this, suddenly another definition spoke to me, “Salvation Of Our Saviour”.

Die

Die

How are we going to live since one day we will die physical death?
Do we want our souls to be saved through Christ (the Living God)?
Do we know our soul’s destination when death swallow our body?
Does the word ‘death’ brings fear or peace to our hearts?


Inspiration On: Sunday, 9 June 2013 from 12:44am to 11:22pm

Taking of my health is important and to have a youthful passion in living this life is essential to me. Keeping youthful look is useless without wisdom. Death is inevitable for humans. My mind paused and realised the acronym of the previous statement. But I was stuck to define the last word until night the excruciating pain we will go through when we lose our loved ones.

Missed Which Boat

Wedding bells ring
Missed the career boat
New family caregiver
Problems with mother in law
Lifelong struggle of either finance and love or abuse
If husband’s contribution loses existence, wife ends as job seeker and
child care
Best to have partner around

Career minded
Missed the wedding boat
Parents caregiver
Problems in finding partner
Lifelong struggle of loneliness
If parents lose existence, loneliness creeps in
Best to have parents around

Which boat to miss?
Which path to tread?
A dilemma
A dilemma

Can’t we choose both?
To provide for children
Can’t we choose both?
Just like in Proverbs 31
To provide for the family
In case of rainy days

According to my observation, the women are always in a dilemma position. Either path seems imperfect. Each path has its own risk. The reason to use “lose existence” instead of “disappear” will give a stronger word. It can mean loses job, pass away or divorce.

What is entangling our relationship?
Entanglement of sins, greed, lies, deceptions? Or
Relationship out of love and respect?
Go to the Emergency Room, Christ and the church
To save us from sin entanglement.

Death knocks at our physical body.
In Immanuel we find . . .
Peace knowing our spirit find rest in Him and united with our Lord.

MI

MI

Do we have multiple identity?
Different faces with different people?
We are called in nickname at home
Formal name at school and work
Another nickname at office
What is our identity in life?
We find our identity in Christ because He saves us from the pangs of sin and death.
The impossible mission is accomplished by Lord Jesus Christ.

Death On The Cross

Posted on

Pain
Pain
Excruciating pain
Death
Death
An excruciating death pain
Painful death on the cross
To atone for us
To save us from
The death pangs of sins
Sins that weigh in us
Sins that weigh us down
Sins that destroy our souls.
For He is the One who loves us
Loves us to die on the cross
Loves us dearly
We are dear to Him.

John 3:16-17 (KJV)
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

Romans 5:5-11 (KJV)
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 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. Much more
then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.


Inspiration On: Friday, 29 March 2013 from 4:30pm 10pm

I was exhausted with yesterday’s outing to get a good bargain for my freelance work. Upon waking up, headache worsens with tight painful shoulders and lack of concentration. Thank God that today is a good Friday, an office holiday so my husband isn’t working and can take care of my son. Then I realized how much more pain my Lord Jesus need to endure when he was flogged, carrying the cross and being nailed on the cross. My heart began to understand Him better and filled with thankfulness. Afterward, I whispered to my son of remembering Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.

Ss

Staggering heart turns to Stable heart
Struggling hands turns to Strong hands
Striving mind turns to persevering mind
Surviving spirit turns to living spirit
Soul is bounded, but is freed.
Attempting to live life to the fullest.
I’m learning to live life to the fullest.
“Indeed, life is lived to the full.” That’s what I heard.
Through His strength upon us.
As He walk with me through the dark valleys,
Valleys of the shadows of death.
My heart feels peace with His presence.

I was contemplating of life’s difficulties. Seems that there is a cycle of life phases that most people have to go through. And I keep trusting God to see me through. Many testimonies testify of God’s goodness and faithfulness upon their lives. Furthermore, I am inspired from Psalms 23.

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.

I Want

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” – Rev 2:10 [KJV]

I want to run
I want to persevere
I want not to fear
I want to be courageous
I want to be faithful unto death

With the help of the Spirit of the LORD,
With the strength from LORD CHRIST JESUS,
LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, sustain me!
i want to see the LORD JESUS CHRIST
Face to face,
Understand all YOUR mysteries, and
To receive the crown of life from the CHRIST.
