Poetry: The creation.

FullSizeRender (5)My father in heaven,

The maker of the earth.

How mesmeric are your creations!

How magnificent are your works!

Clear, boundless, glorious vault,

Deep, shallow, oceanic waters.

Sun, the greatest light;

The glowing medallion in the sky.

Moon, the gleaming light;

A silver disc hanging in the sky.

Flickering and twinkling, bright little stars,

Scattered all over the night sky.

Gathering the waters under the vault.

Formed a vast and tranquil sea.

Lush and green vegetation,

The two-winged and other magnificent creation.

Created the mankind in your own image,

The man from the dust,

And the woman from his rib.

My father in heaven,

The maker of the earth.

How mesmeric are your creations!

How magnificent are your works!

The lord is my programmer.

The lord is my programmer, I shall not crash.

He installed his software on the hard disk of my heart.

All of his commands are user friendly.

His directory guides me to the right choices for his name’s sake.

Even though I scroll through the problems of life,

I will fear no bugs, for he is my backup.

His password protects me.

He prepares a menu before me in the presence of my enemies.

His help is only a keystroke away.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me, all the days of my life.

And my file will be merged with his and saved forever!

True Love: The Love of Christ

Flowers and cards, sweets and chocolates,

Exuberant atmosphere with two different states;

Some celebrate because they are accepted,

Some get depressed because they are rejected;

Fantasy of love, the immature hunt to catch,

Finally gets deceived, as sin begins to hatch;

What was once love, slowly turns out bitter,

What was once care, begins to lose its glitter;

The memories that excited, begin to prick,

The emotions that soothed turn out to be a trick;

The innocent, mild and weak are abused,

The cruel, selfish and wicked are amused;

A colorful life turns into black and white,

It all started with love at first sight;

Love that’s meant to last for life,

Makes life sore and bitter, filled with strife;

Is this the definition of love or can someone guide me please?

Take me to a place where love doesn’t cease;

The love of this world soon comes to an end,

Can someone show me love through worlds without end?

I am tired, alone, betrayed and haunted,

I need someone, who I can lean on, though I’m unwanted;

Someone who would love me, in my state of helplessness,

Someone who would love me, in this hour of hopelessness;

Is there someone who would love me, without selfish gain?

Is there someone who would love me, knowing I can’t repay again?

Then I was told that someone gave his life on the cross,

He was crushed, wounded and hanging there for a cause;

Being fascinated of this voluntary self sacrifice, I wanted to see,

They said, “God loved, so he gave his only son for you and for me”;

Why would he do what he did when he gave his life for me?

I was told that Jesus loves, and his love would set me free;

For the first time in life, I found out what I was seeking for,

An unconditional love, freedom & sacrifice to end all human war;

I accepted his love, that changed my life forever since then,

Jesus Christ became my love, my greatest gain;

God incarnate came down for me – the Father’s love,

God eternal paid the price for my sins – the Christ’s love,

God almighty opened his arms for me – his Holy Spirit’s love,

He is waiting for each one of us to know that love the True love.

The power of ONE!

One song can spark a moment,

One flower can wake the dream.

One tree can start a forest,

One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul.

One start can guide a ship at sea,

One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights a room.

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey,

One word must start each prayer.

One hope will raise our spirits,

One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,

One heart can know what’s true.

One life can make the difference,

You see, it’s up to you!

When God says, No!

I asked God to take away my pride,
And God said, “No.”
He said it was not for Him to take away,
But for me to give up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,
And God said, “No.”
He said her spirit is whole.
Her body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience,
And God said, “No.”
He said patience is a by-product of tribulation.
It isn’t granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness,
And God said, “No.”
He said He gives blessings,
Happiness is up to me.

I asked God to spare me pain,
And God said, “No.”
He said, “Suffering draws you apart from
Worldly cares and brings you closer to me.”

I asked God to make my spirit grow,
And God said, “No.”
He said I must grow on my own,
But he will prune me to make it fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life,
And God said, “No.”
He said I will give you life,
so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God if He loved me,
And God said, “Yes.”
He gave me His only son, who died for me.
And I will be in Heaven someday
because… I believe.

I asked God to help me love others
As much as He loves me,
And God said,
“Ah finally, you have the idea.”
