The Promised Day.

PoetryHost - Christian Poetry & Spoken Word

The Promised Day.

The Lord appears
who alleviates
the fears
that trouble bestows.

Standing in
complete awe.
My Wife and I
bowed down
at His feet.

His presence,
warm and glorious
reaches and
reaches still.

The four corners
of this world
awaken to the
sound of a
mighty trumpet.

We must arise,
for the time has come.
The promised day
is now at hand.

Comfort Zones

Unclean. I was thinking about this word. How do you unclean a room? Yeah, you could be throwing dirt around, but it wouldn’t make much sense…

How do you unclean a room?

Maybe… it’s because you postpone cleaning it?

This is the strangest yet best metaphor I can use to describe a comfort zone, and why it’s such a bad thing. Trust me, I am a master of comfort zones. Professional procrastinator. Olympic Netflix Marathoner.

I used to watch so many episodes from a tv series, so many movies, listen to music, until I could get anxious just watching them. I couldn’t stand still. It felt as if I was wasting my life, wishing it away by never having the guts to do what I wanted to do. Imagine what happened when I found myself in front of another human being… Continue reading

Shoot for The Moon

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”Norman Vincent Peale

Such a simple yet profound statement.

Shoot for the moon. Aim high in life, for there’s no point in playing it safe.

After all, you only have one life to live.

History teaches us that only those who dare greatly, who risk failing miserably, are the ones who achieve greatly.

Fortune favors the bold, the Romans would say. Continue reading

Warning: Your Belief in The So-Called “Work-Life Balance” Is Actually Ruining Your Life

Work-life balance. Financial freedom. Self-help. Motivation. Lifestyle advice.

The “ten minutes” this or that. The “five steps to” this or that. The easy way. The shortcut you never knew needed.

Building a life you’re proud of.

Somehow managing to come up with more than twenty four hours in a day, so you get to do all the things you want to do. Yay!

There are an awful lot of gurus out there telling you that life can be easy, if only… Continue reading

Forgiveness

PoetryHost - Christian Poetry & Spoken Word

Forgiveness

I was lost.

A rebel,
without
a clue
or a cause.

I was a square peg
in a round hole,
trying to be whole.

I lost myself
trying
to impress
others by fitting in.

Insecurity is a prison,
that hands out life
sentences, as if its
life depended on it.

The fear of rejection
and being alone,
had a much deeper
undertone.

I soon would
come to know,
the small,
still voice of
my Saviour.

Jesus Christ
is my
reason
for being.

Imperfect and flawed,
I stand.
I found grace
and mercy at His Hand.

His forgiveness.

He Who Reigns Within Himself

“One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.” – Leonardo daVinci

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who do things when they feel like doing them, and those who do things until they feel like doing them. The first kind, they let their emotions rule them, they do and say what they feel, when they feel. The second kind, they rely on self-discipline, rely on principles, rules, and the conviction that moods and feelings are unreliable and temporary and easily manipulated. Continue reading
