On The Potter’s Wheel

IMG_3005

Battered, Bruised,
Broken by the Fall,
Cadavers
We were,
Ravaged by Sin;
Hapless, Hopeless,
Helpless we sat,
On the slab
Of Divine surrender,
Desperate
To find meaning,
In endless motions
Of Daily Living;
Remoulded, Recreated,
Revived, Renewed,
On the Potter’s Wheel;
Wheels of eternal Pardon.

Umber pots of Clay,
Earthen Vessels
We are,
In the Palms of the Potter;
And,
The Excellency of our works,
The Adulations from our lips,
Our eternal Incense
To Him.

Season Of Hope: Down The Foggy Road

Unsure steps,
Unclear path,
A winding foggy course,
Wait! A light!
A glimmer of hope?
Sadly, not so!

It may not be Your will,
I’m guessing Your answer is “No”
“I need Your strength,Lord”
To receive Your will, to move on,
And to accept Your choice for me,
Whatever it turns out to be”,

“I know that when You say, “No”,
You always have something better planned”

Daily Prompt: Foggy

Notes:
To understand the import of this poem, take a look at my other poems on Seasons of Hope. These seasons are glimpse of my current experience with God. If you are going through seasons, I pray we will all find the strength in God to remain faithful in Him and shine through Him. Amen.

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, Magnetic

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.

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

His kindness is limitless
His goodness is endless
His mercy is relentless
His grace is matchless
His love is priceless

Lord, I bow in reverence

Triumph Over Me, Lord

I give my mind to You
Transform me within
I give my soul to You
Save me from myself

I Come…

I find that,
With You
I don’t have to be smart,
Polish, natty or sophisticated
I don’t have to prepare a speech
Or attempt to burnish my heart
I don’t have to buff my accent,
My attitude or my life

All I need to do
All You want me to do, is,
To come, just as I am
Warts and all
To come
With a willing mind
That desires to be more like You
So Lord,
I come

Daily prompt: Polish
