Do Wives Need to Work?

Posted on

This may pose a different light of the Bible to everyone. The question of women having career and work always intimidate the wives especially mothers. Even though it is wonderful to be with our children at home, I realize another element of the Bible often are laid aside. Proverbs 31, which is the Old Testament. May this impart wisdom to the women, soon to be wives and even mothers.

Do you believe in taking care of your parents financially and physically during their old age? My friends’ and my mothers are good examples and inspirations to my friends, siblings and I. Having enough money can

  1. Contribute to the house loan;
  2. Care our parents financially;
  3. Secondary income in case of husband unemployment.
  4. Touch wood in case husband passes away due to accident or sickness. Therefore, we need to pray for our husbands’ well being and protection. Our younger days were filled with the reality of the pangs of desperation. We have been observing the struggling widows making their ends meet to feed their children. Our parents discuss about the widows’ lifelong journey and succeed to care their children. This is a good news.

Then we can feed the children and provide them with good education to increase their employability skills.

Everyone, please read the Bible clearly who are at risk. The widows and the orphans. Does it mean the grown up children do not need to take care of our old aged parents who take care of us with love to grown ups? Remember who strengthen our feeble hands and legs during our younger days.

Some of my friends and my mothers work. When our dads are having a hard time to earn the money, our mothers use their money to provide for the family and continue our education. They can still help the poor who are in need. So that the poor can stand up and help others.

Does it mean wives no need to work? Please read and digest Proverbs 31 and share your feedback on this issue. I know this is the harsh facts of life I am sharing throughout my friends’ and my lives. It is the reality of life and we see God’s goodness and providence though we receive Christ in our late teens.

Many women of faith love to quote that earning money is the husbands’ responsibilities whereas house is the the wives’ responsibilities. Does this exempt them from helping financially? However, the book of proverbs 31 and my mother’s life inspire me. My bunch of friends have similar predicament too. Our mothers enable to continue our education from college to bachelor honours when our dads were going through financial difficulties. Our parents believe to equip us with the fishing rod instead of giving us the fishes. Their best efforts and fishes are spent to strengthen the feeble new generation. We thank The Lord for our parents and strive to be a blessings and inspire others. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Suddenly, “meaning of writing” produces the acronym of MOW. But an additional word was added when I revisited this again.

Temperature increases gradually
Boil! Boil!
Hot! Hot!
Smoke escalates

Please turn off the fire
Help! Help!

Needing God’s grace through Lord Jesus Christ

In You

In You, I lay my soul bare
In You, I lay me down
In You, I cry for Your help
In You, I seek Your face
In You, I seek Your joy
In You, I find rest

In You, I find my rest

In You
In You alone

This began with, “In You, I lay my soul bare” then I was lost with words. As I revisited it again, everything flowed out of my experiences.

Flying Knives

Posted on

Flying knives
Of hurtful knives
Knives stab into your heart
Heart bleeds
Bleeds in pain
As
Blood oozes
Out of
The wounds.

Beware knives
Knives of hurtful words
Knives from behind
Knives of
Office politics.
Knives from
Friends.
Knives from
The evil one
The devil
Our real enemy.
Seek God’s help
Taking refuge in Him
Through Christ
His Son.

The idea of flying knives came about whenever I think of office politics. Then the feeling of the knives is related to the evil one. All I can do is to ask for God’s protection and find refuge in Him.

Actor / Actress

Posted on

Here, I stand on the stage
As the light slowly dims
As the curtain rolls up
It is no longer I
It is no longer myself
I am another person
My real inside is replaced with another character
My inner emotion
My inner character
My inner-self
My inner identity
Relating myself to the role I’m playing
The role I’m playing on the stage
The role I’m depicting on the stage

I know, it is just an act
Audiences also know it is an act
I know I’m interacting with the audiences
I need to immerse themselves into the story
I need them to emphasize with me
I am also conveying to them about the character’s story
Their emotion I need to trigger
Their involvements in the plot I am acting
By finding the beat, rhythm, and tone of the entire play
To show them the adrenaline moments
Of the events in my plot.

As soon as I have finished my role
As the curtain slowly rolls down
I am back to myself
Bowing in gratitude pose to thank
To thank the audiences for their involvements.

The above inspirations came as I was reading acting books and remember how I watched a play in cartoons and comic books. As I reminisced the Bible, how much more we need to build our inner characters to glorify God and with His help through the Holy Spirit.

I Want

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” – Rev 2:10 [KJV]

I want to run
I want to persevere
I want not to fear
I want to be courageous
I want to be faithful unto death

With the help of the Spirit of the LORD,
With the strength from LORD CHRIST JESUS,
LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, sustain me!
i want to see the LORD JESUS CHRIST
Face to face,
Understand all YOUR mysteries, and
To receive the crown of life from the CHRIST.
