Don’t let the devil reign in your heart
Beware of sins knocking at your heart
By receiving Lord Jesus Christ
Letting the Holy Spirit to soften your heart
With God’s love all day

Letting His strength to be upon our weakness

This began with a guest staying in my house. Upon seeing my parents sat together in the kitchen, she banged the door (due to jealousy) then went out. Normally, she wouldn’t bang the door before my dad came. So I was thinking to add into the house rule, “In your anger, please do not bang the door.” Actually, this idea is inspired from Ephesians 4:22-32 (KJV), “That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Envious to Devious

Beware of envious eyes
Guard from devious paths

Identify the envious eyes
Trapped inside your heart
Avoid the devious paths
Laid before your eyes

Aware!
Beware!

The word “devious” from Proverbs 2:15, “Whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways” sparked my imagination. It began with, “Envious Devious” rhyming in my mind. But the poetry flowed out on Friday midnight.

Envy and Hatred

Being blessed
I become the object of other’s envy
But when someone is blessed
I envy
Aspiring to be great

Why is this world full of
Envy and Hatred?
Hatred towards oneself and others?
Is it due to our sinful nature?

How should we solve this?
It is unsolvable.
It is human’s problem with oneself.

How to deal with this?
We are helpless on our own.
We need a Saviour.
Saviour of our soul.
This makes God to come into the picture
Clinging to Jesus Christ throughout our lives.
To overcome our sinfulness

As I observed the different aspects of people’s lives and even my life. My parents keep on warning me to beware of my cousin whom I felt very close during young times. We played together and she even guided me in my studies. After she returned from America, what my family warned had come true. Feeling betrayed, but I still couldn’t believe what my family describes her. She is smarter than me and now she already has a husband. What is the point of being jealous of my life to marry and have a baby earlier than her? I never expect of getting married earlier than her.

Shadow

Posted on

Under whose shadow do I want to hide?
Under the shadow of fear?
Under the shadow of envy?
Under the shadow of bitterness?
Under the shadow of anger?
Under the shadow of hatred?
Under the shadow of emptiness?
Under the shadow of hopelessness?

No, NO!
I don’t want to live under those shadows.
But I feel powerless to do so.

Oh I wish to live…
Under the shadow of hope.
Under the shadow of joy.
Under the shadow of love.
Under the shadow of peace.

Where is that shadow?
Where can I find such shadow?
Where is the shadow of light that I longed for?
Where?
Where?!
