I realized that I’m in a difficult period of my life phase in mental and financial issues. The news of widows in financial dire scared me off. The current job I did doesn’t pay much. It will not be enough per month if my husband loses his job. Though his pay isn’t that high, it is still enough to pay for our daily expenses. Everyday, I bring it to prayer with thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6). But I’m still struggling in my ministry, family and work commitments. I begin to wonder do I set own expectations too high. But I don’t want to compromise it because I want to hear the praises from Jesus (Matthew 25:21) at the end of my life. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Lid

Do life’s hardship cover us from seeing our weakness?
Trusting Jesus Christ as Lord and God
Gives us hope of His second coming
Instil strength to endure hardship

Mysterious Life

Posted on

Living in a dark quest of
Life’s puzzles
Life’s riddles
Questioning our purpose in life.

A life full of mysteries.

The deep sorrow of the heart
Nobody can’t fathom:
Heartache
Mind-ache
Body-ache
Psychological-ache
Inner-ache.

Shrouded with clouds of mysteries.
Clouds of entanglement.
Abandoned feelings emerge.
Life’s disappointments.
Difficult times.
Difficult phases of life.
Life’s uncertainties.

That’s why Christ came
To love us
To save us
To help us
And
Strengthen us
In our life’s quest.

As I was musing, contemplating, and wondering of life phases, the above poetry is birthed and continued.

Tingling

Posted on

Tingling, flutter, tingling again, flutter
Turning head to left, right, up, down
To find that tingling source

A bird flutters around with
Tingling sounds as it is flying from
Table to table and chairs

Strange to hear tingling sound
As that bird flutters around these premises
How come got such sound?

That bird captures my attention
My eyes scan through as it flutters
A sphere is at its leg

A little shiny silver bell
Is tied onto its side yellow leg
Mixed feelings toward that bird
It looks cute but also feel pity
For its plight with bell.

My husband noticed such event. As he explained it in Mandarin, “flutter” came into my mind followed by “tingling”. Then I imagined myself in his spot to capture the feelings for the above haiku.

How many times does God need to capture our attentions through His beautiful creations and through difficult situations? (Genesis 1-2 and Hebrews 4:15-16)

Motivation Right Before You

Set my heart’s motivation right before You, O Lord.

Enable me to endure this
difficult times day by day
With the strength whom You have provided
from Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

Please teach me and guide me daily in Your will, O Lord.

Prayers are Revised On: 15 December 2011 at 1:43am

On Tuesday, 22 November 2011 at 8:34am “Endure day by day with the strength from Christ” came to me as I’m going through stressful times in my life because I have been trying to balance my life.

As I was praying during my quiet times on Thursday, 1 December 2011 “Set my heart’s motivation right before You, O Lord” came from my heart to the Lord, recognizing my weakness especially in my emotions.

Blaming Game

Life is full of uncertainties
Life is never fair

Everyone has their own stories and background
Some goes through difficult paths
Some have a blessed life
Some are born in a rich family
Some are born in a mediocre family
Some are born in a poor family
Some are born out of wedlock

We can not choose our own family

This world is full of blaming game
This world is full of blaming cycle
A cycle that is always repeated.
A never ending cycle.
Ever since the time of Adam and Eve.
Should we continue blaming?

No.
Stop the blaming.
Instead, we need to be responsible of our own actions.

These words suddenly speak into my heart like there is an inner voice of my observation about life. So I quickly write it down to my paper. In the beginning of creation, Adam blamed Eve for eating the forbidden fruit and Eve blamed the serpent. (Genesis 3) Absalom blamed King David as an excuse of his revenge to kill Amnon and to usurp the throne. (2 Samuel 13-18).
