Please The Lord

Posted on

Thoroughly amend your ways
Thoroughly amend your doings
Thoroughly execute judgment
These please the Lord

Oppress not the stranger
Oppress not the fatherless
Oppress not the widow
These please the Lord

Shed not innocent blood
Walk not after other gods to your hurt
These please the Lord

Obey His voice
Walk in His ways that He has commanded
Acknowledging own mistakes
Confess your sins
Receive correction
These please the Lord

~ Tojiru Yoshiko

Today’s quiet time in reading Jeremiah 7 sounds so poetic. The poetry is just a summary of Jeremiah chapter 7. May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

Being inspired with ant bully movie, I concluded my husband as insects and bugs bully. Recalling his young times, it seems disgusting to me for him to bully the insects and bugs he encountered. Remove cricket’s one leg then put back into the trees. Put fire onto a spider until its legs retract back and died. A brick to stomp onto a scorpion.

Then I was reminded of my brother during his primary days. A rat was locked in a trap cage. A stick inside the trap cage with a sharp end was used to sting the dark brown rat curiously. Though I asked him to stop, he continually sting it many times. I watched in horror in how it shrieked in pain until it stopped moving and ceased its breath. Such a gross sight.

All these sights and hearings mixed together and gives birth to this first acrostic poetry with the help from Yori. Reminding me of the book of Leviticus in the procedure to care the land God blesses. Leaving me speechless for D, E, O, Q, T, and U. When I think of the poor, there are downtrodden people. Leading me to the outcast.

God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Bait

Posted on

Oh, we are like fishes in the pond
Swimming with enjoyment
Until
A hook with worm
Suddenly rolls down
Tempting fishes to
Take the bait
Bait to be devoured
Bait to death and destruction

Hooks of the devil
Snares of the devil
Traps of the devil
Wiles of the devil

Temptations from the devil
Deserve our attentions to beware
Deserve our attentions to guard ourselves
Deserve our attentions to seek God’s intervention

To stand strong in our faith
To stand with Jesus’ strength
To please our Lord
As the ambassadors of gospel
To be the vessel of Light

Do we ignore God’s Words and choose to fall into temptations?
Or
Temptations are overpowered with our choices to stand in His Words?

The second stanza came first followed by the rest. But the first stanza birthed out upon ending all stanza. First stanza’s purpose and idea came from second stanza with word “hook”. It was an allegory to depict human’s frailty needing of God’s strength.

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.

Pot

Pot

~ Hikari Yori

Temperature increases gradually
Boil! Boil!
Hot! Hot!
Smoke escalates

Choo! Choo!
Please turn off the fire
Help! Help!
Somebody help me
The kettle pleads

~ Tojiru Yoshiko

What is our point of time to realize our weaknesses?
Needing God’s grace through Lord Jesus Christ
Begging our Lord for mercy

Hikari Yori
Thinking the point of time in our lives found the acronym of Pot.

Tojiru Yoshiko
When I read Yori’s poetry, the image of kettle shouted for help appeared in my mind. But I also use pot to boil water.

Root

Root

Do we run out of time doing the work that is pleasing to our Lord?

Or do we run out of time chasing after vanity?


Inspiration On: Saturday, 29 June 2013 from 12:01am to 2:43am

I have been running out of time to juggle in ministry, finding work and family. So tentatively, those four words produce the acronym of root. The dictionary defines root as
1. To grow roots or a root.
2. To become firmly established, settled, or entrenched.
3. To come into existence; originate.

“Do it properly” came to me producing the acronym Dip. Then the word “please God” came so I re-phrase it.
