Power of Prayer Warriors
Seeking the Lord in prayer
Voicing out my needs of prayers
To the prayer warriors
Before the battle begins

Refuses to return home early
Attempt to concentrate on my deadline
Sketching on my sketch book
Then design impressions

Comforted feelings
Enter into the battlefield courageously
Reach to mutual conclusion in peace

God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Peace in Grief

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.

Looking for white hair strands amongst black hair strands
Searching for good people amongst evil people
Picking fresh fruits in the midst of rotten fruits
Searching for cleanliness in the midst of dirtiness
All these are common traits in us

Is it difficult for us to
See good traits in others rather than their bad traits?
Find the right perspective in the midst of wrong perspective?
Pursuing peace after quarrel subsides?
Is it hard?

Come and
Seek the Lamb of God in the midst of our adversities
Pursue the Light in the midst of darkness
Walking in God’s will
Though it may seems difficult
But you will
Peace and joy will flood your hearts

My 39 months son pulled a strand of his dad’s white hair. Next day, he was looking for it but gave up due to too much white hair among the black hair. He was worried to pluck the black and the white hair at the same time. Upon observing this scene, this birthed out this poetry.

Upon writing this, I realized why people tend to take advantage of me. I talk too much of my weaknesses instead of my strengths. But I found my strengths from my good friends and friends. My weaknesses seem too clear for me without realizing others. No wonder I have low self confidence. Even though with my low self confidence, I find strength in Christ and to persevere. Gradually, my hard work pays off when I see my improvements. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Modern Era

Entering the modern era
Liberalism are enforced
Parting money in order to earn more money
Unlike olden days where bartering is enforced

Focus on money blinds the heart
Focus on money crime rate increases
Focus on money lead to selfishness
Focus of money kills conscience
Focus on money lead to dishonest gains
Fearful, hungry, and thirsty hearts
Smeared conscience
Living fearfully
Darkness envelops whole beings
Devil instigates and continually lies to the minds
Evil reigns and feet rush to evil

Unless focus on the Creator
Trust in Him
Following His statutes and ordinances as our worship to our Saviour
Earning money is gained honestly as our worship to our Lord
Love, Care and concern in the community
Remaining in His love
Basked in His bountiful love
Joyful dance in expressing our love to our Lord
Hearts are free from fear
Continuum peaceful and satisfied hearts
Righteousness prevails
No foothold for the devil to reign

Inspiration On: Sunday, 30 June 2013 from 2:09am to 2:09pm

When the painful moment occurred, I was enjoying my play with my three years son. We were playing his favourite kitchen toy set. Dashing into my brother’s room to offer a cup of coffee. Running to and fro. Putting the pans back onto the stove. A quiet brute force knocked onto the back of my spine playfully. Extremely painful. Enough to let tears well up in my eyes. My mother in law appeared and scolded him. Leading him to run towards my mother, but she rebuked him gently. Dashed into my mother’s room. Hiding behind the bed feeling guilty (I guess). Upon the pain was gone, my hands lost strength when I attempted to turn door knob. Waiting for a few minutes, my strength returned. I gently spoke to my mother in law to let the matter rest since he is still young.

Approaching my guilt-stricken hiding son behind the bed, he seemed hesitant to come out. Fearful of his predicament. Thank God for the understanding that he is still so young and the compassion He instilled upon me. Embracing my son, gently reason with him, and explain spine was the most sensitive part of the body. Nobody should hit such vulnerable section. No hitting spine and don’t let anybody to hit his. Finally, he came out and embraced me.

Upon reflecting this in the midnight, I realised love is open and vulnerable. More words flowed out as I revisited this poetry and remembered Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV), “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

Cutting Words

Cut! Cut! Cut!
Attempting to explain
Cut! Cut! Cut!
Attempting to explain
To seek the truth
By asking my son’s stance
Instead of assuming
Assuming he wriggles like a dog
In front of his grandma’s door

Cut! Cut! Cut!
This irked me to the core
Cutting my words
To justify her actions
Cutting my words
Insisting her own mindset
Insisting her own way
Babbling like a train
Instead of peaceful discussion
Cutting my words
With her ears closed
With her mouth closed
With her eyes closed
Refusing to listen
Refusing to see
The right perspective

How many times
Do our hearts are
Closed to God’s love
Closed to see God
Closed to find rest
In Jesus Christ?


Inspiration On: Tuesday, 25 June 2013 at 11:30pm

This kind of conversation irritated me for keeping on cutting my explanation instead of listening after she blabbered. She was furious of revenge from her grandson to hit back. She was angry for him to hit his own dad.

When I probed my son and asked caringly, he responded he hit his dad playfully. His dad often played with him acting like a bad guy so he wanted to play that with his dad. Unexpectedly, she hit him for doing so and the revenge occurred. Heated arguments with my son and disciplined him, but he dashed to my mother out of fear.

Is sleeping soundly good for the just?
Does the wicked has sleeping difficulty?
Not all who have insomnia are wicked.
Losing someone dear to us is extremely painful.
Losing our pathways is detrimental.
Losing Truth from heart is damaging.
Losing the Lord is estrangement.
Don’t lose Lord Jesus Christ in us!

Psalms 4:8 [KJV]
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

Psalms 127:2 [KJV]
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so He giveth His beloved sleep.

Proverbs 3:24 [KJV]
When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Proverbs 4:14-27 [KJV]
Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. But the path of the just
is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. My son, attend to My words; incline thine ear unto My sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Heart is full of blindness
Blindfolded mind from the truth

Watching Ranma episode 152 birthed out the above poetry starting with, “Dispense the ceremony, dispense the formality, Dispense the hostility” and finally the other words flow out today. And the third paragraph’s source of inspiration comes from Proverbs 3:31-33; 6:15-20; 20:23 and Romans 6.

Proverbs 3:31-33 (NASB)
Do not envy a man of violence and do not choose any of his ways. For the devious are an abomination to the Lord; But He is intimate with the upright. The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but He blesses the dwelling of the righteous.

Proverbs 6:15-20 (KJV)
Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy. These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Proverbs 20:23 (NASB)
Differing weights are an abomination to the Lord, and a false scale is not good.

Romans 6 (NASB)
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Preventing hurting hearts
Preventing escalating violence
Preventing broken homes

Promoting peaceful atmosphere
Providing safety dwellings
To the young
To the adolescents
To the adult
To the mid-aged
To the old

When conflict arises
Press the BRAKE.

When both parties
Clap hands to
Apply self control
In the strength
From Christ Jesus
Through Holy Spirit
Instill in hearts

Peace, love, and
Social order reign.

Night

Posted on

As the night envelops the whole city
Stars are shining brightly in the sky
The windows’ lights are dimmed
All breathe are hibernating on their bed
Babies are resting and sleeping peacefully

A peaceful night
An enjoyable time
No disturbance
Quietness
Be still
Stillness
In heart

Inspirations of pictures come
Inspirations of words come
Inspirations of stories come
Answers to my problems come
Oh, finally I hear a gentle whisper
A whisper of comfort

In You

Posted on

In You, O Lord Jesus, I place my trust
Trusting the saving of my soul

In You I depend
In You I pray
In You I find peace
In You I find wisdom
In You I find strength
In You I find I can overcome
In You I find I can cross the mountain of obstacles

In You, O Lord
In You, O Lord
In You, I want to stay
In the shadows of Your wings.

Bathing in Tears

I’m bathing in tears
Wallowing in depression and desperation
Whatever I do,
Whatever good
I’m trying to do is never right in her sight.
I’m trying to so
What is right before the Lord.

Knowing my
Weakness
Flawness
Limitations
I feel powerless
I feel helpless
I feel weak

Tears rolling down
Down into a bottle
A bottle that is prepared
To fill my tears
Tears of remorse
Tears of my wretchedness
Tears of my repentance
Tears of pain
Tears of longing God’s mercy
Tears of desiring God’s loving kindness
Tears of yearning God’s hand to be upon me
Tears of craving God’s strength to be upon me
Tears of wishing God’s hand to enable me to do what is pleasing in His sight.

In desperation,
I cried out to You, O Lord.
Incline Your ear to my plea.
Please enable me to
Overcome
Conquer
My feelings
Feelings of self-pity
Feelings of low self-esteem
Feelings of gloominess
Feelings of despair
Please hear my cry,
Please hear my cry,
Please hear my cry,
O, Lord Almighty
O, Prince of Peace
O, my Saviour

I’ve been trying to do what is right before the Lord and towards my mother. Unintentionally, the mention of the battery of wall clock was like adding fuel to the fire. She was angry towards the helper who purposely defied her instruction to handle the household. Words of scolding wrench my heart. Couldn’t take it, tears began to roll onto my cheeks as a lot of things going on my mind. She ever talked about her handle the helper and household so that I can concentrate on my career. Now, she tired of handling the housework. After communicated to her about the message I got from her scolding, she didn’t mean it and explained that she was angry towards the helper. She hugged and kissed me. Thank God for the reconciliation and the misunderstanding is resolved.

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?!
