Love Is Being

Posted on

Love is being open and vulnerable
Open to give love
Vulnerable to hurts and pains
Having patience to love and
Caring the needs of being loved
Bringing peace into fearful hearts
Longsuffering to fulfill His love
Full of kindness to the sinners

Goodness abounds the sinners
Gentle to bring hope and repentance
Blessing
Self control to the receiver of love

When the sinner
Lives in darkness
Selfishness abounds
Unlovable
Hateful
Greedy
Self addict

Love is God’s care for
The mankind
His creation
To solve our
Needs for
Being
Love

Immanuel
Jesus Christ
Son of God
God incarnate
The Lord
The Messiah
The Saviour of our souls
He saves
Instill joy into our needy hearts


Inspiration On: Sunday, 30 June 2013 from 2:09am to 2:09pm

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.”
