The Moment. This Moment

The moment you’ve been waiting for all year

Theme of celebration

Hopeful anticipation

They say “the expectations of the Righteous shall not be cut off”

So I’m putting in my best

Celebrating with the rest

Feeling like am blest

And for the records, I passed the test.

.

Days turn into weeks

Weeks being pregnant delivered months

First time it was an error

But second time hit like a stabbed wound

I am not sure whether to feel disappointed

Or to be grateful after-all, all things work together

In any case, I know God is good

Whether or not the good I expected come through.

.

The pain I feel

This wound hurt

Too deep to share

Don’t ask me what it is

Cause you may be opening up

The wound that should be healing

I guess you just let the sleeping dog rest.

.

Either there are questions I shouldn’t be able to ask

Or there are questions I am afraid to ask

In any case, there are questions yet to be answered

But I know that the King has all answers

And he hides nothing precious from his beloved friends

So I will trust the King

And I will keep moving

The battle continues!

Peace Be Still

Though my night seem long

Yet will I rest in the creative work of God

The finished work on the Cross

Is the reason for my hope

For I know that soon; yes, very soon

This raging tempest will calm

And peace will be restored to mankind

Then will the sun smile on us again

But this time, even brighter and lovelier

So I say to my soul

Peace be still

For the Lord is on the throne

This is not a scripted game

And no one can dethrone Him

So again I say to my soul

Peace be still!

And rejoice in the finished work of Christ.

Peace Be Still

Why Me? Why Now?

There is a time

And a timeline

For every life event

Some create indelible memories

Some wreak life-altering catastrophes

It maybe man-made

Or beyond man’s control

In either of the events

In any of the outcomes

One thing is constant

And one thing is under man’s power:

And that is our

Choice of reaction or perception to it.

.

We may not be able to influence nature

The power to change everyone

Is not in our jurisdiction

But the determination to see

The brighter side of every experience

And the ultimate influence

Over our happiness in life

Lies in our hearts of heart

And this is more important

Than anything that might

Have happened or is happening to us.

.

I cannot downplay the effects

Of certain heartbreaking events

In our lives

I am not saying that

It will always be an easy decision

To be optimistic or find the silver-lining

It may not first option to mind

That’s why it’s the most rewarding  

And so we need to be strong for us

And for our future

Because, at the end of day

We are responsible for what

Was said or done in our bodies

Not necessarily what happened to us.
