BE STILL AND KNOW (Psalm 46: 10)

When there’s no place to turn to,

When things are porous.

Confusion and dilemma fill your heart,

Be still and know.

 

When it’s as if things are going down for you.

Instead of getting better,

It looks worsen.

Be still and know.

 

When all your expectations seem damped.

And your head is about to rip off,

Your neck seems to be on strike.

Be still and know.

 

When you are in the midst of all you hate,

And turbulence surrounds you like your skin;

Your thought seems to say, “Quit living.”

Be still and know.

 

God is ready to speak to your situation.

Your greatest fear He is ready to remove.

Only that you need a time with Him

To be still and know that HE IS GOD.

 

Synopsis: God is always with us no matter how hard the devil has hit us.

PAIN: A DIVINE GIFT WE ALL HATE.

Pain bears the mark of a creative genius.

It deserves more than a token acknowledgment. 1

Pain is as essential to a normal life,

Like blood in the human system.

 

Without pain we will die without any notice,

Like unnoticed shortage of blood in a man’s system will kill him.

We will be devoid of many basic pleasures.

There will be nothing to help us define comfort.

 

In the presence of pain, we can examine what comfort is.

Pain helps and teaches us to love,

Care for others and teaches some people

To love and care for us in return.

 

There will be nothing like pity, sympathy, mercy

Love and care if there is no pain.

Pain helps us to discover our strengths and weaknesses.

Pain is a divine gift to be understood.

 

In our attempts to get relieved of pain,

We discover how to protect more lives.

Without pain people will be heartless,

Cannibalism and killings will be fun to most men.

 

Pain controls our excesses.

Without pain people will know no limit.

God puts pain out of our easy reach.

It operates within a man’s soul.

 

If you inflict pain on someone today,

You too will feel it one day.

Probably, for you to repent of your evil deeds.

Pain – a divine gift we all hate.

 

1. The first two lines were coined from page 27 of Philip Yancey’s book, titled, Where Is God When It Hurts? Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan, 1977.

 

Synopsis: This poem is an ode to pain! Pain is a part of life. It comes in different degrees as God allows it to come. Can you show me a person who has never experienced pain under the sun? Let us live as much as possible to run away from pain as we live a careful life; but if pain still come, then listen to what God has to say. If He is silent, then, this poem can easily remind you of what pain can be – warning!

STATURE

Stature has to do with size,

But it does not talk

About the depth of a man’s size.

People tend to judge others by their physical stalk.

Whereas they are only concerned about the outside.

 

I need to work more on my inside

For my inside stature counts more.

The stature of  a man on the inside

Is more relevant than that of the outside.

To boost my outside stature, inward I look.

 

My carriage not  to be affected, my inside I look.

My posture not to determine my position in life,

The life wire is on the inside.

I will become more attractive

When I enlarge my inner side.

 

I have learnt to improve from the inside.

For I have seen a fat one who became slim;

And a slim one who who became fat.

Disease and sickness at times, charms and evil some times.

Why will I be embittered because of my stature?

 

I have been told from my inside

That my stature is unique.

I am the best for someone somewhere,

Even if I am not appreciated by my neighbours.

Their Creator appreciates me; they are ignoramuses.

 

My stature is the best to glorify God, not man!

If you are offended with the way I look,

Why not ask my Creator why He made me this way.

“None of your business,” I think He will say;

“S/He is not you,” I believe He will say.

 

Synopsis: You are more than the way you look outside. So, be happy with your look and let no person’s comment drive you crazy. Meanwhile, when you can change the look do godly things about it. Let your Creator be the determinant factor for such change. God bless you.
