Love is being open and vulnerable
Open to give love
Vulnerable to hurts and pains
Having patience to love and
Caring the needs of being loved
Bringing peace into fearful hearts
Longsuffering to fulfill His love
Full of kindness to the sinners

Goodness abounds the sinners
Gentle to bring hope and repentance
Self control to the receiver of love

When the sinner
Lives in darkness
Selfishness abounds
Self addict

Love is God’s care for
The mankind
His creation
To solve our
Needs for

Jesus Christ
Son of God
God incarnate
The Lord
The Messiah
The Saviour of our souls
He saves
Instill joy into our needy hearts

When the painful moment occurred, I was enjoying my play with my three years son. We were playing his favourite kitchen toy set. Dashing into my brother’s room to offer a cup of coffee. Running to and fro. Putting the pans back onto the stove. A quiet brute force knocked onto the back of my spine playfully. Extremely painful. Enough to let tears well up in my eyes. My mother in law appeared and scolded him. Leading him to run towards my mother, but she rebuked him gently. Dashed into my mother’s room. Hiding behind the bed feeling guilty (I guess). Upon the pain was gone, my hands lost strength when I attempted to turn door knob. Waiting for a few minutes, my strength returned. I gently spoke to my mother in law to let the matter rest since he is still young.

Approaching my guilt-stricken hiding son behind the bed, he seemed hesitant to come out. Fearful of his predicament. Thank God for the understanding that he is still so young and the compassion He instilled upon me. Embracing my son, gently reason with him, and explain spine was the most sensitive part of the body. Nobody should hit such vulnerable section. No hitting spine and don’t let anybody to hit his. Finally, he came out and embraced me.

Upon reflecting this in the midnight, I realised love is open and vulnerable. More words flowed out as I revisited this poetry and remembered Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV), “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

Here Am I

Stuck among the swamps
Stuck between two breads like sandwich
Insurmountable pressures of life are pressing
Conceited jealous people are pursuing me
Shouting among the crowds
Here am I
I am here

Here am I
I am here

Here I am, O Lord.
Here I am, save me.
I am here, needing Your grace.

Here am I
Save me

Here I am
Choose me
I am here
Lead me.

Here am I
I am here

Here am I
I am here

Hold me in Your hands and embrace.
Teach me and Guide me here.
Here am I, save me.

While playing flags with my 25 months old toddler near the window, suddenly an inspiration came to me to label a flag “Here am I, I am here” out of the window to inform my future friends who are coming to my flat for cell group meeting. Oh I wish to host cell group meeting at my home.

Afterwards, more cries came upon me – he pressures of life in family, relationships, and even work. Feeling stuck with numerous tasks at hand reminded me of stuck in the swamp and attempted to rise out of it. But it is a futile attempt when the swamp is swallowing your body. You need a Saviour to save you by pulling you out of it.

The scripture from Isaiah 6:8 “Here am I; send me” also partly inspires the above songs. Though the context of the Scripture is Isaiah’s willingness to listen to God’s calling as a prophet, the above song is to call upon God to save the souls who are crying desperately to Him and embrace God’s salvation through Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
