Gossip Rumour

Posted on

Encounter gossips and rumours
Choose to
Decide to
HALT

The spreading of the
Infectious words
Scandalous stories

Refuse own participation
Take courage
Being brave enough to

Speak and declare
Don’t want to hear
Don’t care to repeat
What is being said

Such actions help to
Stop a rumour
Stop gossip

Before it spreads
Infecting others
Cause more pain


Inspiration On: Monday, 31 July 2017
Edited On: Saturday, 5 August 2017

Being a quiet person, there are times I repeat on what is being said. Parrot. I served in the administrative role in my previous job. A family business where family matters and business matters were mixed. I believe in getting along with everybody. When they have issues with each other, they pour out to me. I feel so grateful to be trusted and believed. However, I can feel drained. Because all the word attached to me and can effect my perception towards the spoken party. Thus I lose my temper towards one of the spoken party. I feel convicted inside. Thus I met that spoken party to reconcile. That spoken party is forgiving and we agreed to work well for the company. Thank God for the great relationship. Sometimes, when I go somewhere and passed by the office, I just go to the office to say hi to everyone. The moral value of the story is: be careful of the spoken words from the other party. Check but don’t let it attach onto you. Karen Ehman (the author of ‘Keep it Shut’) commends a quiet girl who can speak up for herself and others. I need to learn from that quiet girl when and how to answer. A few months ago, a friend repeats some rumour about an actress. I’m surprised with my answer. It may not be the case. Most likely those people are jealous of her being famous. Once I watch her performance, instantly I can sense she is a great mimicker. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Being Appreciative

Loving each other fulfills the law of Christ
Who has loved us in our worst phases of life
May we never forget to
Appreciate those whom the Lord places
In our paths of life

Armed with knowledge about a person’s passions, needs or interests, you can do more than connect; you’ll have an opportunity to bond and impress.

~ Keuth Ferrazi & Tahl Raz in ‘Never Eat Alone’


Inspiration On: Monday, 7 September 2015

The above acrostic poetry is birthed from reading the book ‘Never Eat Alone’ written by Keuth Ferrazi & Tahl Raz. Throughout reading the book, I still believe in the word of God to love God is to love others. The most important is to love Him first being rooted in His Word and grow in Him. Then we can serve others in their needs, interests and passion.

Throughout my experiences, I was given the things I don’t need. Therefore, I come to the conclusion to bless others by understanding their needs, interests and passions. I am thankful of my spiritual mentor to equip me with the Word of God. Upon knowing she would like to have Bible in King James Version, I carefully chose a compact yet medium font of a King James Version Bible. Out of gratitude, I surprised her with it. She is so delighted. I feel so delighted with her satisfied expression. I thank the Lord to enable me to observe her needs before I bless her with a present. I like the character of my mentor who is not ashamed to share her flaw to me. She understands I am so upset with my own flaws.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Invisible Wind

Wind is the
Invisible forces
Animating the dancing leafs

No camera can capture the wind
Likewise no one can read the mind
No one can ready the mind of God

Do we believe the invisible Being?
The invisible Creator who is
Watching over us

Peace in Grief

Posted on

In the stillness
I find
Peace

Peace comforts
My grieving heart
Grieved to the point of
Desperation

Loss of hope in a
Newfound friend
Loss of hope in a
Longtime friend

Finding peace
To be
With the Lord


Inspiration On: Friday, 31 July 2015 at 3pm

The feeling to write with my left hand returns. Yesterday’s memory ingrains an ache in my heart and mind. A newfound friend spoke harshly to me due to me being lack of experience. A long time friend was scared to confess so he passes it to me. The feeling of being caught in between is getting more unbearable until I cried to the Lord on my bed. At home and outside, I am caught in between. It’s so painful. Thus I spoke to that friend that his words and actions hurt me. As I was crying to the Lord, I find peace in Him. May this poetry comforts those who are caught in between. May you know that you are not alone. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Courageous in Outrageous

Posted on

Courageous to go through the battle of life
Outrageous to go through the angst of lies

Yet still to courageously trust in The Lord
Albeit the outrageously wiles of the devil

Hating own life to live for Christ courageously
Losing grip of everyone in the world outrageously

Losing the will to live outrageous life
Only to persist to live a courageous life
For Christ alone


Inspiration On: Sunday, 3 May 2015 at 8:03pm

Living in hurts and pains baffle me. Someone who claims to be in Christ proved manipulative. Desiring to control my life, he played around with his words. Upon realization of his claw, I choose to leave. My dear friend just went through similar situations. My advise to her is to leave rather than being taken advantage. Moreover, she can not trust her client anymore. Even though it hurts her, she chooses to leave. Her parents also advised her to do so. A word of advise, not All Client are King. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister. 

Ripe

Bird’s pie drops
Onto the floor 
In front of me

Drip!
Bird’s pie drops
Onto my
Transparent umbrella

Drop!
A ripe fruit 
Drops but Hits
Onto my head
End its destination 
On the pedestrian footpath 

Life is full of
Unpredictable events
For us to
Decide and Choose
Either Good or Bad fertilizers
Insert into our 
Lives
Insert into our 
Innermost minds and hearts

Creeping inside before it is
Ripe and blooms
Beware the root grows inside

Life Triumphs

Rest for the weary hearts and lives
Lives need repairing from
Devastation of wars
Wars kill
Kill for blood

Blood is life
Life from God
God our Creator
Creator of current and new lives
Lives who bore God’s image
Image of His love for mankind
Mankind needs to love
Love one another

As the Father has loved us
Through Christ’s death
Death on the cross and resurrect
Resurrect to show His power
Power in us to defeat
Defeat demons’ power in us

Promising His strength in our weaknesses
Weaknesses to sin but to
To arise in God’s love
Love triumphs over dark powers

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Upon revisiting this again, the blanks were filled and found another definition as the conclusion to EHM.

Sweet to Bitter

All sweetness of life may
Bring idleness, laziness
Cultivate such habits may
Depart from goodness
Evil beckons & knocks at the door
Falling into the trap of sins
Going after strange worships
Hiding behind the trees fearfully
Insidiously Innocence departs
Jeopardise own spiritual life
Killing own hearts from
Loving others
Melding oneself into
Nothingness and Worthlessness
Offering
Painful memories and Guilt hearts to
Question own wrong beliefs and actions
Rattling whole being
Suffering the consequences of own wrong
Towed by own actions
Under own blindness until getting
Venomous bite at heart and conscience as a
Wake Up call to avoid evil and
Xerox our Lord Jesus Christ to
Yearn for God’s kingdom to come
Zealously pleasing Him in hearts, minds, and actions
