For the sake of love and faithfulness

I have faced much pain in this brink of death
Each day I am tested but my faith prevails
I am a sheep taken care by the shepherd
Henceforth, I will always take another step

I did not bail even when Im afraid to fail
I stood still even when i think of running away
I felt like a soldier charging in the battle
I have worn the armour yet i still tremble

To swing my blade against any attackers
The first blow didn’t scare them away
I continue even when I was discouraged
I didn’t quit even when it seems impossible

Sooner or later victory shall be claimed
I may encounter pain at a thousandth step
But my faith won’t waver every step I take
For in my prayers, I was given such strength

In spite of the sting of the blade of distress
I have shown courage and persistence
All of this sufferings I have experienced
I press on, for the sake of love and faithfulness

Step of Faith

The days have grown longer
and fonder of my emptiness
when I wake up on a new day
I only feel loathe and despair
I am hopeless and a loser
I miss the days of excitement

I have been given happiness
and it has been taken away
A season of my life has ended
a frightening new chapter entered
to take journey up the mountains
To bear the pain of new heartbreaks

my fear is awfully widespread
my faith feels smaller than ever
and I keep asking what happened
to my unwavering commitment
I want to finish the life that is given
but I am afraid of what is ahead

Oh look, I am sentence to death
burdened beyond my strength
fell down to my knees and wept
I prayed prayers to the heavens
I am seeking in my emptiness
knocking loud in the silence

the doors have widely opened
and I entered a room with rivers
I see my reflection in the waters
a great voice speaks, i heard
what is in you is the answer
remember the picture of grace

remember to keep eating my bread
you’ll be sustained and strengthened
I have build a fortress in the fire
take refuge and endure the battle
It is I, It is I, who will conquer
for what is in you is the answer

rely not on yourself beloved
for I am giving you more of myself
remember I have never left you
what is in you is the answer
take a step of faith in the battle
for in your hands, I have delivered

Seeking Heart

Her heart asks, she asks questions that seem silly to us
Who is us? us are the wise, the smart, the chosen ones.
I was told to not hinder the Children to Him and His heart
So here I am, being asked of who was, is, and is to come

Continue to seek Him my child, continue your way to the light
Who is the light? the light is seen through Heaven’s eyes
Do not run, do not hide, for unconditional is His love
So here I am, as her heart asks who was, is, and is to come

Her heart do not understand, but she continue to ask
Who is the word? The Word is life and of eternal one
Do not lose heart, for His burden is light, ask and find
So here I am, listens to asking of who was, is, and is to come

Her heart finally understands, she gain insight and life
What is life? Life is not of this world but of glorious one
When the day comes, everything you see will be of renewal
So here I am, patiently, we wait of who was, is, and is to come

What I learnt about good and bad relationships?

There are many types of relationships: familial, romantic or intimate, professional, and friendly or brotherly. I learned that any good relationship is important to our lives and bad relationships dries up our lives and cut our lives short. In this post, I would emphasise the pros of having a good relationship more, than the cons of having a bad relationship. Now, why is a good relationship important?

For The One I Love

Oh to the great above
here my cry
for the I one love
rescue him from wrong morals
give him true freedom
his heart full of hatred
i cannot bear
overtake oh mighty one
give him freedom
have compassion
break the chains now
make him new
He needs you
Let him know you more
For you are so much more
And there is more
Oh God you are more
All he’ll ever need is you
