Lost


Inspiration On: Friday, 10 May 2013 at 3:54am to 4:53am

A sudden challenge of idea to define the lost, “Labouring Only” came. Surprisingly, 14 minutes later, “Living Only Self Theme” knocked to my head as I revisited this again. But the remaining words for the first phrase struck my mind.

Bring Forth The Fruit

Posted on

Bring forth the fruit
The fruit of faith
The fruit of labour
Labouring painstakingly
Sowing in tears
But
Reap with joy
And
Trust in God
Trust in His Words.

The picture of a blooming flower spoke to me, “Bring forth the fruit”. The scripture in Psalm 126:4-6 “Restore our fortunes, Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.” popped out to me and the part where Jesus talks about the parable of three servants with different talents in Matthew 25:14-30.

Inviting Baby

Posted on

Inviting baby
Inviting ants
As the floor invites fallen crumbling biscuits.

Eyebrow frowns
Fire rises
Mouth is going to scold
Hands are going to whack
STOP!

Just invite it into our minds
Let our minds accept it.
Let the fire cools down
Let our hearts be patient.
Be calm.
This will not happen forever.
It is just a while.
One day, it will be just a memory.
A memory that will bring a smile.

Remember, we are once like them before.
How do our parents react?
They are patient.

Upon observing ants took the fallen crumbling biscuits on the floor, suddenly the words, “Inviting ants” came to my mind. As I wrote it down, the above first paragraph came to my mind. Knowing that it is not completed, I kept on returned to it until 11 November the above piece is finally completed.

Why do I use the word “invite”? When we give birth, it is where we invite our babies from our womb to this world. As babies are still learning, we need to be patient with them. Whenever they eat by themselves, some food or biscuits may fell onto the ground. We ever went through that process, but had forgotten it. My mother is someone whom I admire and respects the most because she teaches and guides me with patience since young until adulthood. I thank the Lord for such a mother and I’m thankful and grateful for her time and effort.

The apostle Paul mentioned in his epistle for his gratefulness to those who labour for the sake of the gospel, which can be found in the book of Romans chapter 16.
