This acrostic idea also came when I was shredding papers. In every human being, there is a self defence mechanism to protect us from harm.

Instil strength to endure hardship

Suddenly, defining voice challenge me. “Vibrant” came for remembering the knowledge during my school days. Voice comes due to the vibrancy of vocal chords in the throat. Then shouts of praise depicted in the Bible and self reflection came to mind.

“When you choose to make a sound; the air causes the vocal chords vibrate, and the sound continues up and out through the mouth.” according to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_is_the_voice_produced.

While reflecting on my four years of marriage, I have been keeping the promise my husband forced me to keep. Not to find jobs as counter staff, waitress, and even low pay jobs. Office jobs are allowed. He feels that I should work in the office because I studied until bachelor honours. Ten months of marriage, our baby boy arrives to this world. He asked me to stay as housewife for three months. Months passed to four years. The promise he made before marriage almost annulled due to my mother in law’s interference. Thank God for Him to protect the promise he made.

Upon returning to this again, I remembered God’s promises through the Bible; trust in His salvation and for waiting for His second coming.

When he gave me two options to care our son, it is all to his advantage. It’s like promises are broken. Heartache. It is like checkmate on the chessboard. When I reverse the two last words “broken promises”, BP is produced.

Wisp

Wisp

What and who is the work in slow progress?
Humans are.

Good attitudes, actions & behaviour

Wrong attitudes and actions & behaviour?
Each of us is like a strand in a rope

His love helps us to correct ourselves for His kingdom
Our contributions help in expanding His Kingdom
Kingdom of salvation filled with peace.
What is slowing us down in our growth in our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ?

Everyone Has a Story. Meet Nhiet by One7

Posted on

Chris Martin is a minister of God who leaves his comfort zone to minister to the needy and see God’s work upon people’s lives. His life is changed by the people whom he has met at One7. I’m also looking forward to see his new posts.

One7Blog

At One7, our goal is to raise up a generation of Jeremiah’s who will go out into the world and share the Gospel of Christ. The beauty of grace is that God can use an imperfect vessel to illustrate His ultimate perfection. The youth of One7 would be the first to tell you that they are not perfect. They make mistakes. They struggle. They fall. The good news is that they get back up and keep moving forward because, when they are weak, God is powerful.

Over the next several months, we want to introduce you to some of our youth leaders and let you get to know them a little better.

Smile in the Night

Posted on

In the dark blue sky
White mouth smiles
Smiling brightly
Smiling to everyone
Instilling warmth to the onlookers.
A smile in the night.

The crescent of the moon
Reflects the Sun’s light
Causing it to shine
Shine among darkness.
A smile in the night.

Oh! We like moon
Needing the Sun
To give us love
To give us warmth
To give us hope
To shine His light
Through us
To point the lost
To point the people grope in darkness
To Him
To His loving hands
To be saved.
A light in the night.

There is Eternal Life
There is peace
There is salvation for our souls.

As I was reading my email newsletter from Intel Software Adrenaline, a sentence struck my heart and mind. The article is written by Tim Kridel on 6 December 2012 about ‘How Big A Problem Is Malware?’ with words “Cyber criminals are business people and they will go where the money goes; as smart phone increase in number, we anticipate more to come.” (http://link.software-dispatch.intel.com/u.d?IYGtmTdPTZStq7_aBL1uQ=2861)

Suddenly, the words, “in Christ Jesus” came to me and I was reminded from the Scriptures in John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.

It was raining and full of lightning. While in the bus writing about the lizard encounter, I heard my toddler expressed his feelings to the opposite passengers. Those words reminded me of the book of Psalms where King David is pouring his hearts out to God to deliver him from the hands of his enemies. The real mastermind and instigator of our enemies are satan (the devil) and his demons.

Revenge

Hurting heart
Crying heart
Face turns red
Smoke churns out
From red ears
Driven by anger

Climbing mountains hastily
Holding a spear
Clenching teeth noisily
Seeking revenge upon
The perpetrator
To avenge beloved’s death

The darkness of
Humans hearts needing
Salvation to show
Light, truth, love
Through God’s forgiveness
His beloved Son
Sent to save
His creation created
In His image.

A sudden tug to pray for Israel during my sleepless night. As I pray, The promise of God for Abraham is affirmed upon him, his descendants, and the saved people as stated from Genesis chapter 12 verse 2.

Oh Eve, Oh Eve

Posted on

Oh Eve, Oh Eve,
What had you done?
In the beginning of the world,
You were made perfectly by the Creator
You were made in perfect beauty by the Creator

But, you let the serpent
To beguile you
To tempt you
To let you astray
To sin against the Lord
And hurt your husband spiritually
And hurt your true spiritual life
And hurt your descendants
And let sin enter and rule this world

You are
Letting your Creator down
Letting your husband down
Letting yourself down
Letting your descendants down

Ultimately, bringing curse upon yourself
Bringing curse to the earth
Bringing curse to the nations birth out of you

But the Creator choose to forgive and bless you
But Adam also choose to forgive and bless you
But Adam, you, and your descendants
Have to bear the consequences of your actions
Have to pay painful hefty price of your actions
Though the Lord gave the promise
To strike the serpent’s head with the heel
From your future promised Seed

The promised Seed had come
He had struck and bruised the serpent’s head
He had bring love to the lost world
He had bring life to this condemned earth
He had bring hope to the mankind
He had bring salvation to this earth
He let the captives free for those who trust and depend in Him

Thank Him and praise His holy name.

For a woman will either bring
Success to her man
Or
Downfall to her man.

Young Eves
Choose Life
To secure your heart from going astray
To secure your salvation
To secure your man’s success
To secure your life as well
To secure your descendants’ life and success.

How to secure?
How to live successfully?
Humble yourself before Immanuel
Believe in the Messiah
Receive Him as Your Life and Saviour
Seek Him in your daily lives
By living according to His instructions
His instructions are like building your house upon the rocks.

May the Lord be upon you and bless you
As you live according to
His Words
His instructions
His perfect will.

For He knows that we are weak.
For He knows that we are from dust.

In response to the Scriptures in reference to Genesis 1-3, Isaiah 42:6-8, Proverbs 31, and the New Testament.

You were made perfectly by the Creator
But, you let the serpent

Safety Belt

Posted on

Saturday, 9 June 2012

Refer: Genesis 2:6-8 and Psalm 139:12-14

Oxford dictionary defines Safety Belt as “a belt or strap securing a person to prevent injury, especially in a vehicle or aircraft.” Therefore, safety belt is meant for our own safety. It is available in baby trolley, baby chair, car, van, truck, and rides for children, helmet, and many others. The belt at the helmet is to prevent the helmet from falling out of your head.

How much more do we need to listen to God’s Word, His principles, statutes and commandments into our lives. His guidance is likened to a safety belt to prevent us from hurting ourselves spiritually and physically.

God is the creator of the universe and all that is within it including humans. He knows how we are made and formed – dust (Genesis 2:6-8) and when we are in our mothers’ womb (Psalm 139:12-14)

Why can’t we listen to God’s instructions?

We can read from Jeremiah 7:22-24 (KJV) showing God’s heart towards the Israelites to listen to His Word for their own good, “For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

Let us return to God,
The creator of all,
An Infinite Being who
Cares and loves us
His creation.
——————————–~ Tojiru Yoshiko

Repent of our sins
Repent of our stubbornness
Receive His salvation through Christ
Receive His instructions and follow it whole-heartedly.

Stench

Posted on

An unexplainable, inexpressible terrible stench
Pinches my nose deep to the core
My nostril follows the stench
Finally it tracks down the root cause
Of the stench’s real whereabout.

The stench is coming from
My toddler who is in deep sleep
Oh, he defecates while asleep.
Oh, the stench is indeed so unbearable
My nose is hurting inside
Immediately, take action to clean him thoroughly
And the smell slowly diminishes.

Sins and trespassing are also giving the people a terrible stench of death. It is liken to the above haiku. There is a need of the grace of God through Jesus Christ, the Saviour of our soul to clean our hearts, minds, and motivations of our actions. Through His blood we receive the cleansing of our soul. (Romans 5:13-15; 6:11-13)

As I opened my room door, the terrible stench pained my nostrils. Then I realized the smell came from my sleeping toddler and I immediately clean him and change his diaper. As I was changing his diaper, “An unexplainable terrible stench” ringed in my mind. As I calmed down on my bed, I penned down my visualization of my feelings. Today is finalization of the above inspired haiku.

New
Sunrise
In
Believing Lasting Eternity

It is important to be responsible with our body, words and actions. We can see the reason God gives His commandments through Moses(Exodus 20-22; Deuteronomy 5). Our current and new century has a lot of social disorder due to lack of self-discipline and self-gratification in bodies causing a lot of unwanted pregnancies, abortion and baby abandonment. Therefore, once one choose to disobey God’s principle and commandment, one causes disorder into the creation and will bear the consequences.

New Sunrise signifies new hope and purpose in our lives through accepting God’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. And the Apostle Paul reminds us that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 6:18-20) Lasting Eternity is to spend our eternity with our Creator.

Puzzle

Posted on

Puzzling?
Yes. It is a puzzling world we live in.

Jigsaw puzzle is full of puzzles.
Lacking a piece of puzzle is deemed unfinished.

Life puzzles me
Who are we?
Who am I?
How am I supposed to do with my life?
What am I supposed to do with my life?
Which is the best route for me?
Which is the best path for me?

I see a Light at the narrow path.
The Light is inviting me.
I run towards it.
I accept it.
I feel
Loved,
No longer lonely,
Belong to a big family,
And I want to know more
About the warm and loving Light through
Friends who turns out to be my big family, spiritual guidance, and mentor.
To enable me to get to know about the loving and gracious God through Jesus Christ.

Love of God is full of puzzle.
Bible is also full of puzzle.
To put a puzzle takes up enormous time.
To understand the Bible is also the same.
To know God and to grow spiritually takes a lifetime.
For I am a piece in a puzzle
To do His will in my life
In order to complete the
Whole picture of His
Love and plan for mankind.

In the Lord Jesus Christ
Whom I trust for my
Salvation.

All I can say is to thank God and praise God in Jesus’ name for the above complete inspiration and to give a certain rhythm in the lines of second and third paragraph to give the sense of stuck in life full of questions and finding the answer to the questions in life.

The whole rhythm of the paragraph is to show the graph we and I experience in our lives, questioning and understanding about the purpose of our lives.

Invisible & Visible

By the Word of God
A beautiful world is created and made visible.
By the hand of artists
A beautiful painting is produced tremendously remarkable.
With the blast of powerful wind
Natural disaster produces storm, tornado, hurricane, typhoon.
With the power of sunlight
Touching the droplets of rain produces rainbow.
With the power of click
A colourful photo is captured and produced.
Electricity discovery is developed throughout
Centuries by various people’s hard work contribution
For the good of mankind
And to improve mankind’s life.

How much more do we need to
Thank the Lord for His
Eternal Gift, the Saviour of our soul
Let’s accept His Eternal Gift
Gift of Salvation in Lord Jesus Christ
Let’s bless His Holy Name.

Portrait is made visible due to the invisible electric current and the camera taker. Without it, a photo will not be produced. This creation is made visible due to the Words spoken by the Invisible God, who is not visible to our eyes. (Genesis 1)

The above inspiration comes as I kept on gazing onto the photo I have taken and was enclosed with a frame by my mother-in-law. She told me that actually she wanted to place a photo of my husband and I with our baby in a photo frame, but she couldn’t find me in my baby’s photos so my husband with his son are in the photo frame. I don’t mind. As I stared at the photo that I have taken satisfactorily, suddenly the above paragraph came to me then the haiku is birthed.

Just after accepting the Lord Jesus Christ into my life, reading the Bible is like an obligation to me. But as time goes by, reading the Bible is not a hassle, instead it helps a lot in my life and I long for Moses encounter with God (Exodus 33:11).
