I’m a believer
that the sun
to that morning
will watch that evening
will hear your heart singing
I’m a believer
of God’s Perfect Timing
Because I believe, I receive
Because I received, I believe
Because I expect, He perfects
Because I am His, life’s a bliss
Because he has it all, my all is his
Why do I pray?
Because he tells me to ask and say
Because not a second I am forgotten.
Because not a blink he fails to listen
Because my every breath shall thank
Because He is whatever I need to fill this ________.
Note: *Tetelestai: Literally translated the word tetelestai means, “It is finished.” The word occurs in John 19:28 and 19:30
Your job is not to judge. Your job is not to figure out if someone deserves something. Your job is to lift the fallen, to restore the broken, and to heal the hurting.
– Joel Osteen
I realized that it’s not what I needed
I realized that tears won’t purge my soul.
I realized that it’s pointless.
My heart grew tired.
I wrapped myself in silence.
I realized that I needed God.
I was empty to be filled again.
“There will always be a space in our hearts
That only God can fill.”
(February 16, 2010)
The trees sway in the symphony of the wind
The leaves fall in unison with the rain that drops
The flowers bloom in colors bright as loud voices
The birds chirp in choir as if in a majestic orchestra
The poet smiles.
There is a language not spoken but is heard
Not an utterance of words but in the irony
Of silence that speaks so loud
Everything talks in a joyful mystery
She stares up the sky
Sees the Hand that made everything
She smiles once more.
These days choosing a direction is not a simple act of discernment. I went back to a basic realization that figuring out life is not finding the solution to an algebraic equation. It’s neither finding a way out from a maze nor completing a puzzle. If so, life would seem to be a cycle of trial and error based on guesses and intuition. Life is far different from answering a number of item-quiz. Life doesn’t stop at a certain number. It’s not even about what I know. It’s all about knowing His Will. My Maker knows best what I am here for.
(Prov 3:5-6) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not in your own understanding. Acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.”
(Written in May 17, 2011, 10:20pm. And here I am again, the same moment, the same realization. Reminding myself that I do not need to struggle. I just need to rest upon His grace and ways , then I would know where to go. One thing I know, God has positioned me for more.:))
