The Lord’s Presence Brings Joy

Posted on

Eating simple vegetable soup with noodle
Being alone at home with a maid
Sensing the Lord’s presence
Brings so much
Peace and joy

Missing the Lord’s presence so much
Worship songs continually
Minister to my heart to
Sing praises and worship to my
Lord and Saviour

Though I am financially stripped
Inside I feel the fountain of
Freedom from the
Yoke of oppression
Awaiting to play melody for written songs

The joy in the Lord to feel His presence and joy despite my husband chooses not to answer my text message to join our son and him for dinner at a restaurant. Reading the book about Social Entrepreneurship and answering the ten questions make me laugh. It is the question of I receive a mentor. It is the Lord’s doing to meet my business mentor. I have been remembering my interactions with her and the recent way she replies. I thank her for contacting BL to encourage me. She didn’t and told me, “You always assume…..!” My response, “Aren’t you often assume too and jump to conclusions?” is enough to trigger her sound like a kid too. “Sounds like a kid arguing. I can debate with you! Give me a case and I will clear with you”. My question, “What case, lawyer?” Thinking of this makes me laugh again especially her denial of her own age is considered senior citizen. Siti also laughs.

Completing the token of appreciation to my business mentor and write little poetry based on the meaning of her name.

More at God’s presence post.

God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Too or Warm

Too hot
Bacteria dies
Choo! Choo!
Steam evaporates
Out of the kettle mouth
Boiling water
Death is impeccable
Impossible place for humans, living things and creatures

Too cold
Below zero degrees
Bacteria dies
Freeze
Ice covers kettle
An enormous ice cube swarm kettle
Death is impeccable
Impossible atmosphere for humans, living things and creatures

Not too hot
Not too cold
Warm atmosphere
Everything in moderation
Bacteria survives
Mankind’s survival
Living things and creatures survive

Such a simple yet profound
Principles and beauty of
God’s amazing handiworks

Outspoken when necessary

Out of the norm people who
Feels that soft people are weak mentally and can’t fight for themselves

“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.
