  Writing a poem is one of my passions in life and my way of expressing the different emotions deep within. Life here on earth is challenging and mysterious that no one could fully grasp its meaning. We are not free from desperation because of some circumstances in life. I have been into a distressing situation lately. Then, I was able to find comfort from the wisdom that God has given me. Let us soar high in faith and remember His goodness during our troubles in life. I believe that God’s healing grace is flowing within me. I hope the couplet poem below will enrich your soul.

God’s Goodness

 

The goodness of God is beyond compare,

His loving hands that truly care!

 

He made everything possible,

Because His love for us is incredible

 

Someday, on His dwelling place;

Each one of us, He has prepared a space.

 

Rejoice! And be truly glad,

His promises we must look forward!

 

Nature is God’s wondrous gift to all of His creation. Let us discover its beauty that is beyond the worldly things could offer. We need to discern the miracles happening around us. When I’m in deep trouble, my mind has wandered away from the nature’s real blessing!  I hope this quatrain poem below will enlighten your mind.

 

 

Grain

 

In every drop of rain,

It means a life to every grain

A seed sown in a good soil;

Bears much fruit due to incessant toil!

 

Darkness and emptiness haunt us every now and then, which may lead us to commit sin. Let us choose what is good that covers the enmity of sins.  Sometimes, I wanted to give up the light within me and trudge on the murky path of disobedience, but God has delivered me from the wiles of the devil. I hope that the acrostic poem below will lighten up your hearts.

 

 

 

LIGHT

Light is a symbol of righteousness

Invisible and visible to men

Governs with love and charity

Help us discern what is good

The light that outshines the darkness of sin

 

We have so many dreams and desires in life.  But failures will darken our journey towards success and lead us to hopelessness. Failure however, teaches us to be strong and to realize our dependence in God. I deeply believe in God’s divine will for each one of us. Let us just wait patiently for His perfect timing. I hope the haiku poem below will lift up your spirit towards the fulfilment of your greatest goal in life.

 

 

Shattered Dreams

 

Unfavorable

situations shattered our dreams

God’s light shining in

 

 God has given us wisdom to ponder on during the lowest moments of our life. Creativity comes out of our trials and pain. We can write down our feelings through a poem that each human heart cannot forget and share it to others freely.

 

 

PRAYER:

Father God, Thank you for the gift of wisdom you have bestowed unto me. Help me to discern it whenever trials paved the way. Let your divine will shall prevail in my life. Help me, O, Lord, God to overcome the different wiles of the devil. Send your Holy Spirit to lighten my path towards righteousness. Teach me to be a good example to others by the things I do, say, and think. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
