当中 之中 Midst & Amongst

Posted on

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.

An Over-Exert Lady

Posted on
Though a slow learner girl, hardworking is one of her traits. A motto, “I can’t do it, but I must overcome it and able to do it!” starts when she was drowned into a swimming pool at the age of three.
During her schooldays, mathematics is one of her favourite subjects with Chemistry comes second. She dislikes subjects that need to be memorised. Geography and history are the hardest subjects for her due to the need to remember the map and year.
As years passed by, it was the time for her to study diploma in Computing. Programming module is the hardest module to understand because she couldn’t grasp the logic behind it. But upon her cousin’s patient guidance, she came to love it because she could comprehend the logic. In order to avoid the selective memorisation modules during her bachelor’s studies, she chose the programming selective modules.
Undaunted by her drowned experience, she persistently learn how to swim from her father in a warm water swimming pool with her siblings. Believing herself to be able to master the swimming frog strokes, by faith she jumped twice into the adult section of the swimming pool. Though drowned, but she managed to keep herself afloat. Thank God for His mercy for always sending someone to save her. Ten years later, she is able to swim well until today. With that, she is very delighted and satisfied. Then she is still learning other types of swimming strokes.
Finally, during her marriage life she implements her motto upon buying a $24 Antonius four drawer container for household, she bought it at Ikea around Tampines since she was nearby attending a toy workshop. Without knowing how it looks like, she immediately bought it only to find out that the delivery charge is $50 after make the payment. She tied and carried it all the way to Expo without informing her husband for assistance. Upon reaching there, he was shocked to see the drawers. In the end, they couldn’t buy a lot of baby food. Moreover, she lost her puppet’s eye and an arm. Only after shower, her shoulders, back, and ankles were aching. These lasted for a few days. This is the most painful experience, but also a lesson for her not to over-exert herself.
So the moral of the story is
Though forcing oneself is strength, but it is also a weakness.
Your own strength can become your own weakness, but your weakness will also turn out to be strength.
This story is based on a true story.
