The Lord’s Presence Brings Joy

Posted on

Eating simple vegetable soup with noodle
Being alone at home with a maid
Sensing the Lord’s presence
Brings so much
Peace and joy

Missing the Lord’s presence so much
Worship songs continually
Minister to my heart to
Sing praises and worship to my
Lord and Saviour

Though I am financially stripped
Inside I feel the fountain of
Freedom from the
Yoke of oppression
Awaiting to play melody for written songs

The joy in the Lord to feel His presence and joy despite my husband chooses not to answer my text message to join our son and him for dinner at a restaurant. Reading the book about Social Entrepreneurship and answering the ten questions make me laugh. It is the question of I receive a mentor. It is the Lord’s doing to meet my business mentor. I have been remembering my interactions with her and the recent way she replies. I thank her for contacting BL to encourage me. She didn’t and told me, “You always assume…..!” My response, “Aren’t you often assume too and jump to conclusions?” is enough to trigger her sound like a kid too. “Sounds like a kid arguing. I can debate with you! Give me a case and I will clear with you”. My question, “What case, lawyer?” Thinking of this makes me laugh again especially her denial of her own age is considered senior citizen. Siti also laughs.

Completing the token of appreciation to my business mentor and write little poetry based on the meaning of her name.

>Freedom to roam and wander came to my mind. That is how the idea of freelancer is defined. This acrostic poetry is dedicated to freelancers who also help to build and expand God’s kingdom in their time and skills. Some freelancers are taken advantage. I wonder is it due to the term “freelance”. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

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

Either or Wither

Posted on

Either living life to the full or
Wither into eternity in regret

Either fight the good fight of faith or
Wither from life feeling empty inside

Either living in freedom or
Wither from possessiveness

Either free of pain or
Wither in misery

Either obey God’s will
or
Wither in Satan’s grip

Either living in love or
Wither living selfishly

Either living in the Truth or
Wither living in falsehood

Either speak truthfully or
Wither in speaking lies

Either act out our inside love or
Wither being a hypocrite

Either live drinking from God or
Wither in thirst of love

Either live honestly or
Wither in lust

Either ended in heaven or
Wither destination in hell

Wither is the rhyming word either. Afterward, I free my imagination based with these two words.

Loom

Loom

Too much liberty deliberately puts mankind to
Take things for granted
Abuse own authority
Putting God’s will to care
Others and this earth
Will reap blessings
Take heed His instructions to
Love and tend this earth

Argh! I’m supposed to sleep, but “lack of movement” words with acronym ‘Loom’ drove me to jot this down then sleep. According to the free dictionary loom means in verbs

  1. To come into view as a massive, distorted, or indistinct image
  2. To appear to the mind in a magnified and threatening form
  3. To seem imminent; impend

Loom is explained in noun that it is a distorted, threatening appearance of something, as through fog or darkness. When we choose to live according to God’s instruction, His blessings are upon us.

The More

Posted on

At first,
The Bible
The Scripture
The Word of God
Seems
Boring
Dull
Dry
Let me fall asleep.

The more I pray
The more I re-read
The more the Words work in my heart
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
The more I’m grateful
The more I long to meet Him face to face
The more I work on
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.

Thank You, Lord JESUS CHRIST
To come to this world
To come to save us.
To come to strengthen us.
To come to have relationship with us.

Just after accepting the Lord Jesus Christ into my life, reading the Bible is like an obligation to me. But as time goes by, reading the Bible is not a hassle, instead it helps a lot in my life and I long for Moses encounter with God (Exodus 33:11).

Society Values

Is freedom good for the youngsters?
Saturday, 1 January 2011

Refer: Exodus 4:5-10;5:28-30;6:6-8 (KJV)

When a teenager turns to 21 year old, they are considered adult and can make his/her own decisions. I observe that nowadays the society has changed a lot from olden days.

Olden days value the sanctity of marriage and a responsible living. This also teaches the younger generation to be more responsible in their actions and decisions. No abortion. Children are being valued as a gift. Children honour and obey their parents. The grown up children provide and take good care of their old parents.

Current society starts to allow dating couple to stay together and have intimate relationship outside married. They choose not to live with their parents. All they want is to break free from the authority figures. It is regarded independent of their parents. Not just that, they feel that they can do whatever they want. No one can restrict them. This may seem trivial to most people, but it may not be the case. Virginity is not being valued anymore. This also teaches people to be irresponsible in their marriage life and take it as a game. Divorces rate are increasing. That is why there are so many broken families. Children are hurt. More of them are abandoned. Abortion is accepted. Some mothers even murder their newly born babies. Not just that, more elderly home. Old parents are abandoned by their grown up child. The grown up child only thinks for themselves, instead of caring the old.

What is the society turning into?

In Deuteronomy 5:29 “O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” speaks about God’s heart. The reason of His commandments is meant for the well-being of ourselves and our future generations. Our authoritative figure who knows what is right and wrong may rebuke us when we are children, but it is meant for our own good. During young times, we feel restricted in what we do, but it is meant for our own good.

What I mean is not all conservative traditions are correct such as being superstitious. But their values about living, marriage, and commitment are good for us.

The best guidance for our lives can be found in God’s Word.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for letting me to grow up in a conservative family. I’m thankful for my parents to guide me with their value system. This shapes my value system and the decisions that I make. As I think back of my parents’ disciplines, now I’m thankful for it.
