While I walk towards my room, I had forgotten that the coffee table was moved onto the middle living room. It knocked hard onto my legs and I tried to cope with it. Realizing that humans have the tendency of being blind to own mistakes, it is the most essential part to look out in every human being. Hurt without realizing of own wrongdoings in darkness. This poetry birthed out of this painful experience then I left it for fifteen days before revising it again. Then I submit after revision. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Liar

Liar

Do pleasing people lie to self’s cry?

Ever since, I got married and have baby, the new job I took cause more piling tasks to clear and the need to spend time with my son. I have been rushing to work, home, attend my son, my parents who need helps, and even my mother in law. The feeling of living in a rush does tires me down. Suddenly, those four words produced the acronym LIAR. I do wonder how lies are related to rush living. Then another phrase of words came and it is a more precise definition. Somehow, I dig myself more to realize I feel miserable to please my parents, husband, child and in law. Do I care too much for them and neglect myself? Hoping the best for them, but I almost ended with no career life for myself.

Suddenly, a loud thud caught my parents’ and my attention. The uppermost bookshelf fell hard onto the second level. Second level affects the third, but leaves the lowest unscathed. Oh! This stressed me out. I just applied for another job because my current job isn’t enough for my food expenses. Somehow, this incident speaks to me about the heavy burdens mankind carry on their shoulders.

Lid

Do life’s hardship cover us from seeing our weakness?
Trusting Jesus Christ as Lord and God
Gives us hope of His second coming
Instil strength to endure hardship

Thinking about life’s difficulties produced the acronym Lid. As I pondered the current phase of my life, this is my hardest times. Burdened with new family, handle household and work commitments.

BP

No broken promises from our Lord Jesus Christ
As we continue to hope in Him
Awaiting for Jesus’ second coming
Steadfast in our faith in Jesus

While reflecting on my four years of marriage, I have been keeping the promise my husband forced me to keep. Not to find jobs as counter staff, waitress, and even low pay jobs. Office jobs are allowed. He feels that I should work in the office because I studied until bachelor honours. Ten months of marriage, our baby boy arrives to this world. He asked me to stay as housewife for three months. Months passed to four years. The promise he made before marriage almost annulled due to my mother in law’s interference. Thank God for Him to protect the promise he made.

Upon returning to this again, I remembered God’s promises through the Bible; trust in His salvation and for waiting for His second coming.

When he gave me two options to care our son, it is all to his advantage. It’s like promises are broken. Heartache. It is like checkmate on the chessboard. When I reverse the two last words “broken promises”, BP is produced.

Full Moon

Posted on

Looking up the black sky
Looking at the full moon
Shining among the darkness

Looking at the full moon
Full moon is smiling at me
Turn another side
Full moon also smiles at me
Standing under its middle
Full moon laughs happily
Reflecting the sun’s light in it.

Hope is found in the darkest moment
In the darkest moment of life
In our darkest moment of life,
We see Him clearly
We feel Him clearly
We sense His presence clearer.

Remember,
Full moon
Is like
The
Anchor
In the dark sky.

Love

Love . . .
Love . . .
Love . . .
There are
So many perspectives
On love.

Love fills heart with hope
Love fills heart with gratitude
Love instils joy into hearts
Joyfulness to bring worship
Joyfulness to bring shouts of praise
Joyfulness to bring shouts of thankfulness
Though
Love does disappoint
Though
Love hurts to correct us,
We are changed through
Love.

Above all,
The greatest Lover
Always desire the best
For the one being loved
No matter
The recipient
Even though
The loved
REJECT
The One who loves,
He is
The
Lover.
The sacrificial Lover.

As I was thinking about the contents of love and jot it down, today the above inspiration births out and Romans chapter 5 popped out reminded me of Jesus’ sacrifice. Proverbs 3:11-13 speaks about God’s chastening His children out of love, “My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

Poetry Burst Forth & Gushes Out

Posted on

As the pool of water burst to bubbles,
Poetries burst forth from life experiences
Poetries burst forth in my walk of faith
Poetries burst forth through observations
Poetries gush out from our inner-self
Poetries gush out from our hearts
Poetries gush out from our minds
Poetries of poetry
Telling every detail

Every detail of events
Every details of actions
Every detail of wishes
Every detail of dreams
Every detail of pains
Every detail of despairs
Every detail of sorrows
Every detail of tragedies
Every detail of joy
Every detail of love
Every detail of hope.

All these burst forth.
All these gush out.

Writer’s block came upon me after I wrote down my imagination, “As the pool of water burst to bubbles, Poetries burst forth from life experiences. Poetries burst forth in my walk of faith”. But the rest of the words flowed out while I was accompanying my mother to a community dinner.

Smile in the Night

Posted on

In the dark blue sky
White mouth smiles
Smiling brightly
Smiling to everyone
Instilling warmth to the onlookers.
A smile in the night.

The crescent of the moon
Reflects the Sun’s light
Causing it to shine
Shine among darkness.
A smile in the night.

Oh! We like moon
Needing the Sun
To give us love
To give us warmth
To give us hope
To shine His light
Through us
To point the lost
To point the people grope in darkness
To Him
To His loving hands
To be saved.
A light in the night.

Upon observing tonight’s sky in the night, the words “smile in the night” spoke to me. Then I feel its relation with Christ and Christian to the Sun and the moon.

Heir

Those who are in Christ are also heirs of God.


Inspiration On: Saturday, 8 December 2012 at 12:29am

“Hope In Redeemer” resonated in me. Then my imagination began to wonder the definition for “Heir” since the Bible mentions those who are in Christ are also heirs of God and co-heirs with Jesus who is God’s, which can be found in Romans 8:16-18; Galatians 3:28-29; 4:1-3,6-8; Ephesians 3:5-7; Titus 3:6-8; Hebrews 1:1-3; 6:16-18; 1 Peter 3:6-8.

Curious

Are we curious about our final destination?
Where is the destination of our souls?

Hope of an eternal life?

The word curious suddenly came to my mind whenever think of my son enjoys touching everyone’s stuff on the table. C and U came first followed by R, I, O, and U came on Monday midnight. Below is the first version:-
Capable
Until
Ridiculously
Insist in
Overcoming
Unseen
S

Later on, revised as written above and finally, improves its grammar.

Myriad

Myriad of stars in the sky
Myriad of clouds in the sky
Myriad of sand at the seashore
Standing on the grains of sands
As you watch
As you observe
All these beautiful
And amazing nature
The handicraft of God’s hand

For we are like stars in the sky
The God of creation knows us well

Myriad of thoughts in life
Myriad of hope in life
Myriad of hope in love
All these liken to
Myriad of stars in the sky.

Out of a sudden, “Myriad” resonated in my heart as I was watching “Tree Cannon”, an episode of “Mythbusters” DVD borrowed from the library.

Oh Eve, Oh Eve

Posted on

Oh Eve, Oh Eve,
What had you done?
In the beginning of the world,
You were made perfectly by the Creator
You were made in perfect beauty by the Creator

But, you let the serpent
To beguile you
To tempt you
To let you astray
To sin against the Lord
And hurt your husband spiritually
And hurt your true spiritual life
And hurt your descendants
And let sin enter and rule this world

You are
Letting your Creator down
Letting your husband down
Letting yourself down
Letting your descendants down

Ultimately, bringing curse upon yourself
Bringing curse to the earth
Bringing curse to the nations birth out of you

But the Creator choose to forgive and bless you
But Adam also choose to forgive and bless you
But Adam, you, and your descendants
Have to bear the consequences of your actions
Have to pay painful hefty price of your actions
Though the Lord gave the promise
To strike the serpent’s head with the heel
From your future promised Seed

The promised Seed had come
He had struck and bruised the serpent’s head
He had bring love to the lost world
He had bring life to this condemned earth
He had bring hope to the mankind
He had bring salvation to this earth
He let the captives free for those who trust and depend in Him

Thank Him and praise His holy name.

For a woman will either bring
Success to her man
Or
Downfall to her man.

Young Eves
Choose Life
To secure your heart from going astray
To secure your salvation
To secure your man’s success
To secure your life as well
To secure your descendants’ life and success.

How to secure?
How to live successfully?
Humble yourself before Immanuel
Believe in the Messiah
Receive Him as Your Life and Saviour
Seek Him in your daily lives
By living according to His instructions
His instructions are like building your house upon the rocks.

May the Lord be upon you and bless you
As you live according to
His Words
His instructions
His perfect will.

For He knows that we are weak.
For He knows that we are from dust.

In response to the Scriptures in reference to Genesis 1-3, Isaiah 42:6-8, Proverbs 31, and the New Testament.

It suddenly starts as:
“Eve, Eve,
What had you done?
In the beginning of the world,
You were made perfectly by the Creator
But, you let the serpent
To sow discord and doubts
To beguile you
To tempt you
To sin against the Lord”

In the dark of the night

In the dark of the night
A dim light is seen
The hope I need
As I approach it
The light is getting brighter
Then Someone extends His hand to me
As I lift my face
I see a Face glimmers with Love and Hope
He is the hope I need.

All along, I had been
Keeping to myself
Shutting myself from the outside world
Staying at a dark corner
Unexpectedly, Someone extends His hand to me
He is my Lord and Saviour

In the dark of the night
I’m no longer sad
A bright Light is guiding me
Always with me
My heart is filled with love, strength and hope.


Inspiration On: Sunday, 04 September 2011

Reminiscing my days without Christ and how I experience His love causing me to accept Him as my Lord and Saviour and strengthens me to go through the dark phase of my life. It is the most difficult times that I had encounter and losing the will to live.

Dark of the Night

Posted on

In the dark of the night
My soul ponders
Ponders about life
Life’s uncertainties
Uncertain about what the future hold.
Holding onto something tangible

But there is more than life
More than what is seen.
Faith, hope, and love are what
I need most in this life.

What can I do in the midst of my busyness?
Now is night
In the dark of the night
All I can do is to
Attune my soul with
The Lord on High
Seeking His will
Seeking His face
Seeking His approval
Seeking His favour
Seeking His love
Seeking His voice and guidance
Seeking His strength
Seeking His wisdom
Seeking His protection
Hoping in Him
To enable me to finish
My life well.

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth: (for also there is that neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:) Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea farther; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it. Ecclesiastes 8:15-17 (KJV)

The above scripture resonates in my heart as I go through everyday life busy with my baby, tidying house, spending time with my family and even catching up with my friends. Seems that everyday is always busy.

Nowadays, the source of my inspiration comes from the book of Psalms where the Psalmist hope in God and in His Word during the night, which can be seen from Psalm 119:147-149 (CEB), “I meet the predawn light and cry for help. I wait for your promise. My eyes encounter each hour of the night as I think about your word. Listen to my voice, according to your faithful love. LORD, make me live again, according to your justice.”

Among All

Posted on

Among all crowds
Among all the things in the world
Where can I find?
Where can I find the things?
The tasks that will give me a sense of purpose
Where?

Life is so unpredictable
I’m running around aimlessly
Im lost in so many never ending tasks
I do not know what to so

In my heart, I am hoping
Hoping Someone to tell me the way
Hoping Someone to tell me what to do
Hoping Someone to speak to me

Only in You, O Lord
You are my hope
Not just hope
You are also my strength
You are my confidant
Guide me, O Lord


Inspiration On: Monday, 29 August 2011 at 6:15AM

As I close my eyes to go to sleep. I see crowds. Suddenly, “among all” resonates and so the above are the birth of my feelings and expressions.

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?!
