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 :)

      Beautifully expressed poems, letting go of the past helps to erase any negative thoughts and feelings. Writing down our feelings helps us to take a step back and analyze the situation.

      Yes. There are essentially two Paths to God. The way of the mind and the way of the Heart. The Heart is quicker, safer, but if this is you, then the mind will drive you crazy. It is a much longer Path. Love you, Rochelle. Hugs. - Manatita

      True I agree Manatita and thank you for your thoughtful concern :) I understand what you mean :) I have a champion debator at home and she practically drives me nuts. Practicing patience on a daily basis with the grace of God :) I have also met some people who got more mad at me for keeping silent.. and my mom had later told them that they won't get any reaction as I'm not into arguments or fighting. I try being out of other people's way. I just write through poetry so it would be forgotten.

      Thanks again :) Take care and God bless you!

      Further note. Not necessarily having any bearing here, but coming from our good relationship.

      Be gentle with what you do. My way of dealing with folks who see things very differently, is to say the thing no more than twice.

      Afterwards you simply let go. It is easier to do, when we realize that they are God's, not ours. They also have to go through their own struggles. Everyone does as we are not at the same place spiritually and as such assimilate life each in his/her own way.

      Most importantly, some get stimulated by arguments and keeping it going will harm the Spirit. It is like fire vs fire. So sometimes silence is wisdom ... a kind of protection for our selves. Hope this makes sense. We can also love silently or pray silently for others.

      Hi Lady Denis, I hope your words only bring encouragement and hope to those who hear :) I of course always gets misunderstood when I speak and people react and some even get annoyed :) What matters is whatever happens keeping your faith in Him and keep talking to Him no matter what :) God bless you!

      I love your prayer poem. It says so much. I feel that deeply sometimes too. I pray I have never said or done anything that someone else is praying to get over because it hurt so much.

      Blessings,

      Denise

      First, your choice of songs are amazing!

      Now my Sweet Rochelle, I have had faith in you from the beginning. This does not necessarily mean much, as it is the Inner Pilot that we have to please ... the voice of Conscience... God.

      Yet I have always been struck by your sincerity, you naivete ... your sweet simplicity and goodness ... your love for Jesus, The Christ. Cary on, carry on. My Spirit is with you! God is always with you. Praise be!

      Your poetry has improved and the way that you express here is glorious! Alleyuia!

      There is a wealth of wisdom in these poems Rochelle which are so inspiring. Writing down our feelings allows us to reflect on them. Seeing behind the curtain gives us a greater understanding. Take care and stay safe.
