Deep Motivation

Posted on

Being so motivated in media production
I praise my Lord and Saviour to awaken
My deep desire better
My inner self better
My heart and mind better
The new poetry in me to grow in Him better
To be raptured in His loving kindness
To be loved by Him
To love Him with all of my whole being

I was enjoying the short film and the talk by Talya Lavie, an Israelite filmmaker who is born in 1978, comes from an animation background and decides to do more films. She raises her funds through two Israel filmmaking foundations. Her first film ‘Zero Motivation’ wins Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Narrative Feature, and Nora Ephron Prize award in Tribeca Film Festival 2014. I learn from her that she believes in her own stories and persists in her own filmmaking journey by producing short animation and films. In her animation production, she doesn’t interact with people. However, there are many communications with people in her filmmaking journey. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Seven Senses

Posted on

Hoarding books with a pair eyes
Seeping like a sponge

Listen with a pair of
Sharp rabbit-like ears

Sensing every surrounding
Quiet as a stone aware of potential danger

Sniff extensively
Aware of poisonous or edible consumption

Tasting every life experiences
Lead to self-realization and understand others

Perceive others through observations
Conclude presumptions as sixth senses

Not forgetting to trust the Creator
Self-commitment to trust Jesus in all ways

Reading books are my ways to learn to do things. Upon coming to know The Lord Jesus Christ, the Bible is my daily spiritual food and compass. This poetry commence its birth with the first stanza. As I return to it and write my inspiration, I am challenged to explore all five senses. Next is to sixth senses and lead to the seventh sense to learn to trust Jesus albeit unforeseen circumstances. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Party Animal

Posted on

Do animals party?
How animals party?
Are we like animals?
Do people behave like animals?
The strong devour the weak
And even
The weak devour the strong
Is the society turning into cities of jungles?
Are cities jungles of animals?

Hunger for power
Distracts the heart
Jealousy
Blinds the minds
Empty promises
Enter the ears
Physical appearance
Cover the eyes

What are we?
Where are we?
When do we want to change?
Which do we choose to be?
Who are we?
Why are we the way we are?
How do our Creator sees us?
Do we care what we are becoming into?

Upon pondering of party animals and observing today’s society, the above inspiration birthed out. A party animal is a term being used as a description of people who enjoys party with beer and wines. An idea of associating city with jungle is a paradox to wake the people up to stop the bullying of each other, to do self-reflection and to look beyond a person’s physical appearances. First of all, these reminded me of 2 Timothy 3:1-7 (KJV), “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” God bless you all for reading my poetry of pondering questions to minister.

SiP

SiP

Ephesians 6:10-18 (KJV)
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of
faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

Illustration Submission On: 4 November 2013 at 4pm

Hikari Yori
This acrostic idea came when I shredding paper. Since SP didn’t give any meaning, inserting “i” seemed suitable letter candidate than “a”. Sip gives the meaning of drinking and dwelling in Christ’s strength and protection. According to the free online dictionary, sip means
1. To drink in small quantities
2. A small quantity of liquid sipped

Tojiru Yoshiko
Upon thinking of sip and Yori’s idea, shield of faith verses inspired my poetry. Graphical design will help to illustrate this message better.

Tienny The
Designing the sip graphically challenged me. I feel to make the small letter “i” signify human’s frailty needing God’s grace and mercy. Then integrity will follow.

Abandonment

Abandonment

Abandonment causes grievances to an adult and even a child
Such negligence in a family is fatal in the future of abandoned person
Mankind choice of abandoning God’s truth and negligence in living it out

Abandonment is the most painful feelings and memories. Thinking of it, some words define the acronym of abandon. But writing blocks occurred. Next day, more words define every letter and stuck again. Until the final day, all the blanks are completely filled in.

Lock

Lock

~ Hikari Yori

Losing self-confidence
Losing confidence in men
Helps to realize
Human’s frailty
Human’s weaknesses
Own weaknesses
Own lackness
Therefore, let us
Place our confidence in our Creator
Who will be our
Source of refuge
Source of help
Source of problems solver
As we put our trust in Him
As we walk in obedience in His ways

~ Tojiru Yoshiko


Inspiration On: Tuesday, 15 October 2013 from 1:36am to 11:50am

Hikari Yori
When thinking of lacking confidence, it produced the acronym of LOC. Inserting K made it more meaningful. Free online dictionary defines lock as

  1. A device operated by a key, combination, or key card and used, as on a door, for holding, closing, or securing.
  2. A section of a waterway, such as a canal, closed off with gates, in which vessels in transit are raised or lowered by raising or lowering the water level of that section.
  3. A mechanism in a firearm for exploding the charge.
  4. An interlocking or entanglement of elements or parts.

Tojiru Yoshiko
Lacking and even losing self-confidence and/or confidence in men may seem a bad point in terms of the world’s point of view. But this may lead us to seek the Truth of our purpose in life. When we found the Source of help in our Saviour, our eyes will be fixed upon Him who cares our broken hearted.

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.

Another definition for PE came when I was in the train to work. Physical exercise is necessary for health, but it doesn’t mean we let pride enters upon attaining the physique through exercise.

Upon seeing this PE subject from Yori, ideas popped out and words flowed out to express how PE affects the fallen mankind.

Sow to Reap

Selfishness blind the hearts
Selfishness blind the minds
Full of self seeking
Without realizing
Greed, Hatred, Pride, Self justification grip the eyes
Nothing else satiates one’s void heart
These causing oneself
Groping in darkness
Sowing evil seeds
Evil ones torment oneself
Wicked living
Living in hell of conscience
Reaping unquenchable fire

Fear of the Lord open the hearts
Fear of the Lord open the minds
Full of caring others
Without realizing
Love, Care, Concern, Peace, Kindness, Goodness, Longsuffering,
Gentleness, Patience, Joy, Understanding, and Self Control grip the eyes
Nothing else satiates one’s full heart
These causing oneself
Brisk in the light
Sowing good seeds
Basking in God’s love
Righteous living
Living in paradise of conscience
Reaping heavenly rewards

Choose what is best
What is your preference?

Being in the bathroom is my favourite part of the day. It is when ideas and inspirations pop out such as images of poetry and stories. This time, “Groping in darkness Or Brisk in the light” popped out. Words flowed out upon revisiting it for two days being reminded of Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV), “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

SOS

SOS-2

Loving us too much
He willingly sacrifice Himself
To rescue us from death
Death from sins
To give us eternal life

Philippians 2:6-16 (KJV)
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.

Suddenly, inserting O into the words “self sacrifice” produced the acronym of SOS. Then the idea to improvise came into place. Thank God. Because SOS stands for Save Our Soul. As I was going to upload schedule this, suddenly another definition spoke to me, “Salvation Of Our Saviour”.

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.”

Bod

Believing the wide path
Only care about self
Destroy self with many choices

Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Luke 13:24 (NIV)
Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.


Inspiration On: Monday, 10 June 2013 at 12:10am to 11:59am

On my bed, I did reflection upon myself when I disciplined my son who refused to listen and bent on his own way. Suddenly, the words “bent on destruction” echoed and produced the acronym of Bod. Bod stands for Battery Operated Device and even Basic Oxygen Demand. But path of destruction will come for those who bent on the wrong path.

Soft

Soft

Self-Control & Simple yet
Outspoken when necessary

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

“Sick of fight” was my pondering whenever I ever quarrelled with my brother and remembered about such incidents. And also sick with fighting dramas. Fighting among family members and friends are also sickening to me. That’s why I dislike war films and movies. Adding T would produce the acronym of SOFT. Are such people soft? My parents consider me weakest among my siblings, my husbands and friends consider me soft. I often struggled, feeling outcast and weak. When Jesus Christ enters into my life, I begin to be able to accept myself and hoping to live in His ways.

“Inner Need” spoke as I contemplated about Introvert and Extrovert. ‘In’ is the divided word from Introvert whereas Extrovert is ‘Ex’ very ‘extra going’. Inside I’m an introvert so, surprisingly; I define it much faster than extrovert. In solitude, I find my strength in the Lord Jesus Christ.

In IT technology, IS is defined as Information Systems. Internal Strife’s acronym is also IS. So it boils down to contemplate our inner self to correct our mistakes. Strife is caused when we have problem with our inner self and reacting to outside attacks.
