Then The Rains Came

Spring is here!
But the rains came today too
It started out a sunny day
It ended up wet and rainy
And so is life

Does it mean Spring is gone?
Does it mean the sun rays are hidden forever?
Will the rain make Spring go away
For good? No
And so is life

We may set up goals, plans and projects
We were hopeful in January
We had faith, we believed
But… rain is here, in March
Set backs, disappointments, failings

It’s not time to hang up that dream
It’s not time to press that quit button
A little rain cannot stop Spring
Neither can a setback stop you
Life is in seasons; Spring, Summer…

And so is your life

Spring Has Come

Hope springs like snowdrops
At the twilight of wintry chills
Barren trees embrace life
At the surge of gusty cool winds
Winter’s frosty touch
Gradually fades away
Outbreaks of sunshiny spells
Remind us Spring has come

Hope springs like daffodils
At the dusk of dark ensnaring paths
Faith rises to embrace Light
At the reach of redemptive Grace
Sin’s deathly grip
Unshackled from desperate souls
Outbreaks of mercy and peace
Assures us Life has come

God Leads Us Along

Some through the waters, some through the flood
Some through the fire, but all through the blood
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song
In the night season and all the day long
(A beautiful encouraging song by Gaither Vocal Band)

God is not after the mistakes we’ve made, nor is He interested in our past errors. He is never quick to apportion blame. He is gracious in mercy. These mistakes may cause pain, hurt and some disappointment. Tears may rain down our cheeks endlessly as we sit and ponder in the deafening silence on the outside and the great hurt we feel inside.

Therein in that pain He wants us to come to Him, no, to RUN to Him with arms wide open. To take His hand and let Him hold, comfort and lead us through it all.
Until we let Him, He cannot come in. He’s a gentle Spirit, He doesn’t demand by force.

No one may truly understand what we’re going through but we must be rest assured, God surely does. Only Him can heal, help and restore.

Only God can mend a broken heart. When that heart is given to Him.

Happy Birthday!!

Once a toddler…
Great prospects ahead…

Now the aged…
Her time is nigh…

 

 

 

The brevity, impermanence and transitory nature of time.

Time, like an ever-rolling stream bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten as a dream; dies at the opening day.
O God our help in ages past, our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while life shall last, and our eternal home.
(Hymn- O God our help in ages Past)

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.

See my notes on: Season of Hope: His Strength is Enough

Triumph Over Me, Lord

I give my mind to You
Transform me within
I give my soul to You
Save me from myself
I give my heart to You
Come let Your will reign
I give my life to You
Take over the reins

Overpower my will
Let Your will prevail
Overshadow my thoughts
Let Your Spirit invade

Oh! Triumph over me Lord
Oh! Triumph over me Lord

Daily Prompt: Triumph

Reflections From Life #12

Spring. Summer. Autum. Winter. Spring. Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring…

No situation in life is permanent. No circumstance lasts forever. Life is transient and so does the seasons of life. Pain is but for a time and so does joy. Disappointments are not everlasting and so does failure. Rather than dwell in the transient impermanent seasons of my life, make the best of whatever you face. Learn from it and add to your wealth of experience. It will soon be over and another season is fast approaching.

Change and Glow

Change is subjective
Change can be good
Change can be bad
Depends on what you want to see;
Change is inevitable,
And change is a constant
It’s always on the move
Like the second hand on my grandfather’s clock;
When we reject good change, we stop growing
When we accept great change, we start learning
When we avoid good change, we miss opportunities
When we embrace great change, we choose the path
To learn from life and gain insights
Define your change, choose your moves
Know your limits, excel to the limits
Add some aesthetics, sprinkle in some glitter
Beautify your life, change and glow
Always change for the better
And be smarter when you change

Daily Prompt: Aesthetic, Glitter
