You Don’t Even Seek To Understand Me

You don’t even seek to understand me.
To be the followers of Christ
Do you ever wonder Jesus asks
Do you seek to understand the will of the Lord?

Most of the time, people love to pass their own judgements without understanding someone. The feeling of bring misunderstood is extremely painful. Thus produce such quote. It is a quote seeking to be understood. All the time I spend time to understand others yet many choose to pass their own judgements onto me. If I’m not depressed, then I’m not human. However, I thank the Lord to understand my sense to be understood. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Where do our hearts are caught in between?
Love of relationship or love of mammon?

Matthew 6:32-34 (KJV)
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Suddenly, “caught in between” gave me the idea of an acronym. Inserting R will give meaning to it where it is hard to be restrained especially between the conflicts of two parties at war in our hearts. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

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.

当中 之中 Midst & Amongst

找白发在黑发当中
找贵人在小人当中
找好果在烂果之中
找干净水在脏水之中
是难免的是

难到不能
找优点在缺点当中
找对看法在错恶之中
寻找和睦相处在吵闹之中
很难吗?

来跟我
寻找神高羊在患乱当中
寻找光在黑暗之中
走在神的旨意当中
虽然辛苦
可是会有
平暗和喜乐冲满您的心
来赞美耶和华的名
来唱歌颂活神的名

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
Let’s sing praises to the Name above all names

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.

Cutting Words

Posted on

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?

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.
