Deep in the tunnels of rage
Bound in the chains of hate
Darkness surrounding like a gate
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Drowning in the oceans of sin
Buried in its seabed within
Lust enslaving like a gin
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Crouching in the corners of guilt
Ashamed with the depth of your filth
Hiding in the covers of your quilt
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Wallowing in wounds of the past
Vowing to avenge with a blast
Pining with emotions of downcast
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

May the Light of the gospel shine into our hearts and draw us nearer to the Lord, Amen.

Extra Additional Grace

Some folks are easy to deal with,
More like a walk in the park,
Others are much more difficult,
Causing you some irritation of sorts,
You can’t just find a way around it,
Like a sore thorn on your flesh,
They sting, they prick, they kick,
You frown, you fret, you stress,
They drive you to your limits,
You spit out words you do not mean,
Worse part is that sometimes,
They are part of your daily life,

In times like these, we need
Extra additional grace,
Grace to show love unfeigned,
Grace to pray through the pain,
Grace to go the extra mile,
Grace to tolerate with a smile,
Grace to forgive and forget,
Grace to act more like Christ,
Extra additional grace

In The Amazon or The Pacific? Where?

Where can I go?
Where would I run to?
If I scamper down the rabbit’s hole,
Or climb the Eiffel Tower,
If I hide deep in the Amazon,
Or make a bed in the Pacific,
At the top of Mt. Everest,
Or down in the belly of a whale,
At home silently reading a book,
Or at the war fronts of Iwo Jima…

Wherever I am, whatever I face,
I know, You are there with me,
I know, I am safe, always safe,
In Your everlasting arms.

(A poem inspired by Psalms 139)

Season of Hope: Trusting You

Through these years,

I’ve learned to trust You,

Even in this season,

I’m learning to trust You,

Show me Your way,

Help me to always say,

From my heart within,

I trust You, Lord.

Season of Hope: Can’t Give Up Now

IMG_2610

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don’t believe He brought this far
To leave me

(Mary Mary- Can’t Give Up Now)

This beautiful encouraging song by Mary Mary has been on my mind since morning. It’s so true and very uplifting. In my little journey with God, He has not left me before. And, I know He will not leave me now.

Two Unlike Poles… Attracted

Searching, pondering,
Where do I belong?

Then I realise,
I belong to You,

Like a magnet we are,
The sinner and the Saviour,

One notorious,
The Other Revered,

Two unlike poles,
Divinely attracted,

Drawn to each other,
By the cords of the Saviour’s love.

Daily Prompt: Magnet

Season of Hope: Give Me Wisdom

Give me wisdom,
To know what I can change,
Give me strength,
To accept what I cannot change,
Let my faith soar higher,
Than the eagle’s nest,
No matter the outcome I see.

Season of Hope: His Strength is Enough

IMG_2605

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through

I know I’m fighting to stay on
Buy my little strength is ebbing away

Everyone expects me to be strong
But I can’t hold it in much longer

So if there’s a strength You see in me
Open my understanding, help me find it

I just want to let out a scream
Not out of faith or for fear

But to release all my emotions
All my musings and brooding

To the One who cannot be broken
So He can bind me up again

Then,
I hear Matthew West on the radio
“I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
I don’t have to be strong enough”

Yes, I don’t have to be strong enough
Because His strength is enough

Poet’s notes:
I’m personally going through a season of challenges and setbacks. I’m using this series- Season of Hope to unveil my thoughts and prayers to God. Let God do as He deems fit.

All Paid For

To see the Jesus reign and rule in the hearts of men all over the world.

Father and Son
Dwelling
In perfect harmony
Until that evening
When the Son
Bore on Him
The sins of whole world
On a hill faraway
His loving Father
Cringed
And turned away
From His beloved Son

Even today
Our loving Father
Cringes away,
When we
Indulge in sin
Hear him call,
“Come to Me child,
My Beloved Son
Has paid the price
For your sins”

Daily Prompt: Cringe

You Are Not Illusion

Though I cannot see air
Yet, I can’t live without it
Though I cannot touch love
Yet, it flows within my heart

Though I cannot see You
Yet, I cannot live without You
Though I cannot touch You
Yet, You dwell within my heart

You are not an illusion
Father, You are real to me

Daily Prompt: Illusion

Let Your Light Shine

Like a plain crisp paper
Carrying graceful words of God
Let my life be a medium of God’s:

Light to those in darkness
Joy to the bereaved
Wisdom to the simpleminded
Warning to the rebellious
Grace to the saints
Faith to the doubtful
Liberty to those in bondage

Most importantly, Oh Lord,
Let my life be:
A medium for the gospel of Jesus
To the unbelieving world
A medium of God’s love letter
To the lost sinner

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”- Matthew 5:16

Daily Prompt: Paper

A Beacon

When I feel wronged, hurt and sad
And find forgiveness too hard
When I feel overwhelmed with pain
And can’t find the exact words to explain
When the future looks hopeless and bleak
And my troubles are at their peak
When temptations assail my mind
And the strength to resist I scarcely find
When there’s so much death in this world
And so many families torn from their beloved

Create within me, Lord, a heart
Of compassion, of empathy
A beacon of hope and truth
A beacon of light and love

Daily Prompt: Create
