Reach Up, Reach Out

9FA342AE-B947-45B8-A960-A9BA8D8EBF97

Your scribbled words
An enigma,
Your spoken words
A mystery,
Sudokus are made
For scholars;
Demystify the letters,
Unravel the illegibility,
Unmuzzle your freeness,
Reach up, reach out;
Send an invite to the Holy One
Who loves you eternally.

“Everywhere I go I see You right there; In the beauty of nature You shine all around,
For You are everything and everything is You; Precious Jesus, a wonderful wonder You are” (Nathaniel Bassey – Lovesong)

Out From The Miry Clay

B5EF68B9-B3D7-4ACC-8E65-9FDC35999882

Out from the miry clay
Love drew me out
Out from the depths of sin
Grace plucked me out
Out from the darkness
Perfect light shined
Beauty beyond belief
Mercy beyond my mistakes
Out from the sludge
Life called me back
To life

Jesus- Our Best Buddy Ever!

What a friend we have in Jesus! All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.
Oh, what peace we often forfeit! Oh, what needless pain we bear!
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Hymn by Joseph M. Scriven

When we think of all the challenges life throws our ways;
When sickness ravages the body that the doctors and physicians are confused;
When the death of a loved one leaves us vulnerable and burdened with pain;
When despite our faith and unending prayers, the matter seems to persist;
When debts and financial crisis attempts to steal our joy;
When at the crossroads of life’s decisions we don’t know what to do;
When we are all alone struggling to keep up and there’s no one who understands; When war and terrorism attempts to bind us with fear;
When the hurt of the past stops us from moving forward;
When life comes to a halt and nothing seems to be working no matter how hard we try;
When we are in dire need of forgiveness and restoration;
When we’ve been lied to, betrayed, despised and forgotten.

In such times, we realise there’s one buddy, one friend we can count on any day, any time, anywhere.
He’s never tired or weary of us, He’s always there in good times, bad times, middle times.
He never fails and we can count on
His unending love,
His redeeming mercy,
His unfailing compassion and
HIS matchless faithfulness
To see us through the times.
No matter how we beat His chest in pain or in anger, He is never broken.
His arms are always there wrapped around us, keeping us safe and secure in Him, comforting and consoling us. And if we wipe our tears and listen closely to His heart, we will hear Him saying,
“Trust Me child, I will never leave you nor forsake you”.

Jesus, the best Buddy we can ever have!

Our Planet

IMG_3043

Look up,
Look around,
See

Skylights,
Dazzling along the Milky Way;
Dense clouds,
Caressing Everest peaks;
Strelitzia,
Blooming with Beauty;
Night, Day,
Order in the Skies;
A baby, a mother,
Circle of Life continues;
Macaws, Topaza pella, Caracara,
The Amazon is home;
Niagara, Erie and Ontario,
A love triangle;

Our Planet,
The perfect masterstroke
Of a Great Genius.

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.

An open book
I am
Before You,
Before time began
Before I began
You
Knew
Me

You know me
By heart
In Your
Memory
I am

Every aspect
Every facet
Every turn
Every me
Inside
And out

My future
My life
My end
An overt tale
Etched
Firmly
In Your
Heart

What
Do You see
In me?
What
Do You know
About me?

Lord
Take me
Hold
My hand
Open
My eyes
Lead me on
Show me

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.
