Trust in the Lord

Posted on

Pray to the Lord
Trusting the Lord
With hearts and minds
In everything
Doing own best

I will deliver thee
Thou shalt not be given into
The hand of men
Whom thou art afraid

I will surely deliver thee
Thou shalt not fall by the sword
Thy life shall be a prey unto thee
Because thou hast put thy trust in Me

Saith the Lord


Inspiration On: Thursday, 25 December 2015

Jeremiah 39 helps me to understand about God. The Lord spoke to the Israelites through the prophet Jeremiah. Second and third stanza comes from verse 17 to 18. These two verses speak to me the importance to trust in the Lord during my tumultuous times. Likewise, the Lord continually deliver those who put their trust in Him. This really comforts my heart to continually trust in Him. Proverbs 3 also explain the importance of trusting the Lord in whatever we do.

Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Modern Era

Posted on

Entering the modern era
Liberalism are enforced
Parting money in order to earn more money
Unlike olden days where bartering is enforced

Focus on money blinds the heart
Focus on money crime rate increases
Focus on money lead to selfishness
Focus of money kills conscience
Focus on money lead to dishonest gains
Fearful, hungry, and thirsty hearts
Smeared conscience
Living fearfully
Darkness envelops whole beings
Devil instigates and continually lies to the minds
Evil reigns and feet rush to evil

Unless focus on the Creator
Trust in Him
Following His statutes and ordinances as our worship to our Saviour
Earning money is gained honestly as our worship to our Lord
Love, Care and concern in the community
Remaining in His love
Basked in His bountiful love
Joyful dance in expressing our love to our Lord
Hearts are free from fear
Continuum peaceful and satisfied hearts
Righteousness prevails
No foothold for the devil to reign

Gentleness, Patience, Joy, Understanding, and Self Control grip the eyes

Being in the bathroom is my favourite part of the day. It is when ideas and inspirations pop out such as images of poetry and stories. This time, “Groping in darkness Or Brisk in the light” popped out. Words flowed out upon revisiting it for two days being reminded of Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV), “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

Initially, “Power of God” came then the idea of adding “behold” was reminded from the Bible. Since the acronym didn’t make a word, I wondered to change letter G to other letter. After much thought, C seemed the best letter since C stands for Creator.

Missed the wedding boat
Parents caregiver
Problems in finding partner
Lifelong struggle of loneliness

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.

  2. When; whenever; every time
  3. Used with will or would to ask somebody politely to so something

Fear in Darkness

Posted on

Darkness shrouds the entire house
Rooms are shrouded with darkness
Dark clouds above the roof
Gradually, the dark clouds pour forth drops of water
Cold wind blows the ring tied at window
A sharp flashes of lightning make its appearance!
Thunderous sound blasts through the window!

Sense of chill runs through the spine
Strands of hair stands up
Jolting out of his bed,
Shrieking in fear,
Trembling in fear,
Gasping for hug,
Comfort from
Fear.

Being hugged,
On my shoulders,
Patting on his back.
Sense the warmth.
Warming his heart,
Expelling his fear,
In my presence.

During dark times,
We find
warmth, comfort and peace
of heart
Through God’s loving presence in Jesus Christ
Through the Holy Spirit
Jesus blesses upon us.

A Baby

Posted on

A baby is a good mimicker
A baby is a mirror reflection
Of what the parents portray
Of what actions are observed

A baby is dependent
A baby is trusting
On those who take care
On those who nurture

How much more the nurturer needs Jesus Christ
How much more the nurturer needs to depend in Christ
How much more the nurturer needs God’s strength
How much more the nurturer needs God’s wisdom
How much more the nurturer needs to give good examples
How much more the nurturer needs to walk the talk
How much more the nurturer needs to lead properly

Above all, the nurturer needs God’s nurture
Nurture to fear and revere God
Nurture to listen and obey God with their daily lives
A daily life as a daily sacrifice to God.


Inspiration On: Thursday, 12 July 2012 at 2:23am to 3:36am

The actions of my cute toddler suddenly came upon me as I was dozing off. When he took my lip balm and swiftly apply it onto his lips due my niece apply my mother’s lip moisturiser onto his. Then another occasion of taking out the weighing machine under my parents’ bed to weigh himself due to whenever my brother enters the room often takes it out and weigh himself. The third occasion was observing my parents to wipe legs with the blue cloth on the floor. Upon hearing the words to wipe his legs, he runs into my parents’ room and immediately stomps onto that cloth. But the helper intends to wipe his legs with another cloth. Fourth occasion is to spray perfume onto his armpits knowing it smelly due to perspiration whenever he got a hold of my mum’s perfume.

Those actions amuse me and make me laugh whenever my family talk about it or suddenly playing visually in mind.

These reminded me of Deuteronomy 6:5-7 (NASB), “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”

A Daily Struggle

A daily struggle to do quiet times
A daily struggle to do God’s will
A daily struggle to obey God
A daily struggle to please God
A daily struggle to revere God
A daily struggle to fear God
A daily struggle to commit our ways to the Lord

In our hearts, soul, mind, actions
In our attitude towards life
In all that we Think and Do
In planning all our way.

Remember Elohim.

My dad explained and comforted my toddler who is fearful of thunder whenever it occurs during the middle of the night. He shrieked in fear, begged to sleep on my bed with his dad. After the thunder had died down, either my husband or I will put him back to his cot. I shared this experience to my dad.

Upon returning home from a night class, my toddler said to me, “不害怕gong gong. Gong gong放屁”. Through his words, a poem is birthed and later on I tried to revised it and translate to English.

How many times God comforts us not to be fearful of our circumstances? Just trust in Him and go to Him in prayer. We can see God’s mighty hand in the Old Testament and in the book of the Gospel where Jesus comforts His disciples upon calming the storm (Mark 4:35-41).

At first,

The more I get interested
The more enthusiastic I became
The more hunger in my heart
Towards
God’s loving kindness
The Word of God
The presence of God
In my lives.

The more I’m thankful

My salvation with trembling anf fear
The more fear of God exist in my heart
The more I realise His presence
The more I marvel at His diverse creation
The more truth I learn
The more I delight to do His will
The more my heart is liberated
The more my heart is softened.
The more I comprehend my identity
The more I comprehend my purpose
The more I comprehend my destiny.

To come to save us.
To come to strengthen us.
To come to have relationship with us.

Shadow

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?
