Dam

Dam

~ Hikari Yori

Prophet Jeremiah cried to the Lord
Seeking His help and deliverance
Pronounce curse towards those who tried to destroy him
When our dam is full of the weight of the world
Overflowing of pain and anxiety will occur
Cry to the Saviour who will lighten our burden
When we lean upon Him and His guidance
Learn to bless knowing His peace

Jeremiah 18:23 KJV “Yet, LORD, thou knowest all their counsel against me to slay me: forgive not their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from thy sight, but let them be overthrown before thee; deal thus with them in the time of thine anger.” I was reading Jeremiah 18, first section of verse 23 produce the acronym DAM.

Hit

Hit

~ Hikari Yori

All we like nails being hit by giant hammer
Enormous pain abounds
My Lord and my God
He is there all the time
Ready for us to confide
Our heartbreaks
A contrite heart He will not despise
When we are ready to let it go
He will lift us out of the well of despair
His love explode out of our hearts, minds, and mouths

~ Tojiru Yoshiko

Suddenly, my hard times gave me the idea of hit acronym. When the words “having hard times” came, I was thinking to pass through it. Then I realized of its acronym. The dictionary defines hit as
1. To affect, especially adversely
2. To be affected by (a negative development)

Hid

Hid

No wonder we hide when we sins
Our ancestor, Adam and Eve, hid from their Creator for eating the
forbidden fruit
Blaming the wife
Blaming the serpent

Jeremiah 17:9-10 (KJV)
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

What You See & Hear

Posted on

What you see is not what you hear
What you hear is not what you see

Open your eyes widely
Open your ears clearly
Wear your spectacle
Remove the speck covering your eyes
Dig out the dirt in your earlobe
Let your ear as long as the rabbit
Use both of them
To observe correctly
To listen attentively.

Please do REMEMBER
To observe correctly
To listen attentively.

As I was cycling home from buying groceries, “What you see is not what you hear. What you hear is not what you see.” has been speaking to my mind. Subsequently, I remembered of my situation before. A friend who is guy ever met me at the eateries near my church. Afterward, he seek my permission to follow me in order to know which church building I go for worship then he left as I entered the church building.

Upon reaching home after the completion of Bible class on a certain topic, suddenly my sister questioned worriedly where I went. I answered I went to church for class. Abruptly, she repeated what her friend reported, “I saw your sister walk with a guy to an apartment.” Thank God for His Holy Spirit to give me calmness and replied gently that the apartment was just one out of other apartments I need to pass by from the eateries in order to reach my destination, which is the church building. In my heart, I thank the Lord for the pastor to give a certificate of attendance upon the completion of the Bible class with their contacts. Confidently, I took out the certificate from my school bag. She believed me. And this event has been a laughable matter due my sister’s friend basing his deduction according to what he saw. It will be good if he probed to listen the conversations and followed out of concern, rather than see superficially and report it.

Sometimes hearing people say only without observing may make a mistake also. The animation “Death Note” showed the corrupted officer named Light questioning his suspected underground follower. Light used stackable notes to tell her what to do and telling lies as his other colleagues were listening to his conversations. This what the police officers do to collect evidence. It is not a wise decision either due the incomprehensible of human hearts tempted to go astray (Jeremiah 17:9).
