You're born for a higher calling

In the chase of money and wealth,
Toiling endlessly twenty four seven,
Gruelling the mind ignoring one's health,
Condemning the soul away from heaven

Building a tower of gold and fame,
Heaping on more cash and blings blings,
Filled with lust and greed without shame,
Slowly digging one's grave with too many fine things

Living life like a zombie with blood shot eyes,
Torturing one's soul in denying its existence,
Ignoring the soul's decaying as it gradually dies,
Separated from its core in a far distance

I pray my dear friends that you wake up and see
Open your eyes and realise your higher calling
That you're more than just money and fee
You're a royal heir and your soul needs feeding

Matt 16:19 - 20
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal."

There is more that unites us than that which divides us.

It is sad that many people are divided by different beliefs, races and colours. Everywhere we go, we will meet people who are racists or tried to bash someone else because of different religions.

Yesterday I witnessed a beautiful Muslim couple from two very different continents who were joined in love through matrimony. Their wedding was a wonderful celebration of people from all races coming together as one to celebrate a joyous occasion that is united through love. They not only invited friends and family of various races, they also invited performers from different races.

Everyone had a great time. There were people from various parts of the world too; joining in this beautiful celebration of different cultures melting in the same pot. Everyone came in the name of LOVE.

Sometimes, even in the same family or worship place, people are divided and people always want to have the last say. It is not wrong to defend one's belief but do so with Respect and Love. Sometimes, due to certain doctrines or certain theological debate, people tend to overlook that maybe sometimes all it takes is to love that person first regardless of who or what he or she is. Jesus loved the adulterous woman and defended her from being stoned without first preaching to her.

I love what Patriach Bartholomew said , “Beloved friends,” he told delegates to a conference about peace, “there is more that unites us than that which divides us. We have within our grasp the vision of the Psalmist, ‘Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.’”

 Indeed..can't we all look at each other like how God looks at each of us? Good in His eyes, a child of His (meaning our brother or sister).

God loves you and bless you!

Cannot sleep??

Tossing and turning
Heat filled the air
Mosquitoes buzzing around
Random thoughts flying in the head
It is hard to sleep
Thinking of so many things
Wanting to just use a magic wand and wipe all to do lists free
Most of all worries and anxieties
And the painful memoirs of misbehavings
He said be not afraid
He said peace be with you
He said abide in me
He said I forgive you
Those soothing words
Brings back moments of truth and comforting touch
He will wipe away the tears
He will help make crosses bearable
He will make all the pain worthwhile
Life is short
Too many things to do but so little time
Yet only one thing that truly matters
Just stay with Him
Focus on Him
Sit at His feet and let Him tell you what to do next
Like Mary everytime He went to Bethany
Perhaps little or no sleep or more sleep will not make much difference for one knows that strength comes from Him
Till the day He comes for us
We shall persevere and cling unto Him
