A Message in a Poem
A Message 07/07/2020
This is a message to the lady that I have no ill will of the past
For me it isn't easy to be pretentious or wear a mask
Being honest and truthful always has a way of backfiring on my face
So I usually likes to avoid confrontation and walk my own race.
Remember arguments cannot win respect or hearts
Neither fault finding nor blaming another for your own faults
Just be accepting of your weaknesses so you would learn from them
In your weaknesses He becomes stronger if you give all to Him.
Be humble, be generous always to everyone
Don't forget to smile and welcome everyone
Seek peace in God centred passion
Be free from unforgiving prison.
I understand that no one is perfect and I don’t expect you to be
Probably your husband was being supportive through defending
That small incident affected not only me but also the little girl
So I appreciate if you could be more understanding and gentle.
I pray that instead of self confidence
You would cultivate God confidence
Whether you voice your words spoken,
Written in books, remember people see your action.
I pray that whatever you put your heart into prosper
May the talents in your hands multiply one after the other!
The labour of love that you daily shares be appreciated
May you be used for God's glory alone instead!
Don’t forget to dream big and pray for His presence
Actively thank God for His providence
May your name be known as you become influential
May young women look upto you, as you become inspirational!
May your faith grow in Christ and be your safest net
In love with a genuine spirit may God grant you wisdom in each test
May you bear fruit that transcend all understanding
I pray that in His Kingdom you would be His precious blessing :)
If I to be frank and honest, when I write although I feel much relieved, sometimes I begin to remember more than what is on the surface. As I mentioned in my last hub article,"Can you unscramble my mind?", I was having a discomfort whenever I came across this lady because of a simple observation, I realized that I shouldn't have eavesdrop on other peoples conversations in the first place. Most of the time I don't listen much since I'm actively involved in my own "bubble world". Well that's what my brother calls it and he loves to burst my Bubble. I think I got into trouble because of my stupid curiosity.
I can't remember whether it was the before last year or not, at a prayer service, the Pastor said that we should forgive someone who had hurt us and I was honestly surprised when I remembered that lady whom I hardly even speak to. So I just prayed even without remembering what I forgave her for. Then after couple of days it turned out I was to work with her for like 3 days. However I was really surprised that I didn't experience any kind of discomfort by interacting with her. Only on the last day, I remembered that incident and I was relieved knowing that even if I forget something, God doesn't forget to release me from my discomfort. So the discomfort that was dealt back then was physical.
So now come to think about it, writing helped me to change and pretty much understand what was happening within me. What do I mean by that?
Changed In Him 08/07/2020
Nothing changes if I don't create the change that I like to see changed
And that is renewing my mind, freeing myself from overwhelming thoughts
Most of the time when I write, advice or ideas exchanged
It often feels that I speak to myself first unwinding all knots.
Ten years ago I was told something that literally changed my life
My heart felt excruciating pain as if the world has come to an end
Sometimes discoveries could be worst even if it doesn't threaten my life
What's the point of living, when fear seems to have no end?
I thought with all my strength if I avoid I won't be affected or need to face
Oh boy! How wrong was I as it feels like it never ends but being chased again and again
I don't understand why it has been such a burden until I spoke to Him about it in faith
Even faith sometimes feels like a pipe dream and believing in an hallucination.
Something that I cannot achieve by human abilities or medical developments
It feels truly impossible with human resources and it has nothing to do with the biological clock
Inadequacy that highlights when loved ones often questions my choices
If God is in control, then why there is such a rush to tie the knot?
Just because I laugh doesn't mean I enjoy hurtful words said as jokes
I feel everything deeply eventhough I try to find its purpose
With time I have learned to be content with God given gifts ignoring pesty folks
If God created me in my mom's womb the way I am, probably for a divine purpose.
Writing is my God given gift, a way of expressing my voice, even I pray through writing
And all I want is Him to breathe His breath of life every morning as I wake up
So I would exhale God's life to everyone around me through speaking
Before I sleep I ask Him to soak me in His Word of love so I would be stirred up :)
