2021

2021 in view…


Year of greater glory.
Beauty for ashes.


Honour for shame.
Gladness for sadness.


Gain for pain.
Joy unspeakable.

Favour for labour.
Grass to grace.

Divine restoration.
Divinely arranged.

Speak The Truth

A poem on speaking truth
Photo credit: Joel de Vriend/unsplash

Speak the truth and never speak a lie.

Speak the truth even if it’s to your hurt.

Speak the truth even when no one believes you.

Speak the truth and you won’t have to worry about remembering what you said.

Speak the truth but don’t force anyone to believe you.

Speak the truth, but do it in love.

Refocusing From Temptation

Oh temptation
The more I try to resist you
The more you seem to persist
Making the fight look so tough

Oh temptation
You started like a thought
Now you are so overwhelming
Pushing me so I can fall.

Oh temptation
You got my attentions
Now you want my emotions
So I can give you some actions.

Oh temptation
You cannot overcome me
I’m refocusing my thoughts
Far, far away from you.


*This poem was inspired by Pastor Rick Warren’s Daily Devotional of 7/7/2020, entitled, Instead of Resisting Temptations, Refocus.

The Resurrected Saviour

In His birth
Divinity became enwrapped in humanity
For the salvation of mankind.

In His death
Divinity suffered in the hands of humanity
Paying the price for the salvation of mankind.

In His resurrection
Divinity had Him forever established
As the only Saviour of mankind.

Our Love Will Last Forever

I am yours.
You are mine.
Our love will last,
Till all ages pass.

You gave me Your best
When you sent Your Son
To die for me on the Cross

You spared nothing at all
To win me to Your side
You’re my loving Father
I will love You forever.

You gave me the living hope
While I was perishing and hopeless
And all I had was nothing

You’ve given me Your all
So I can be one with You
This love we share between us
Surely will last forever.

Prove Them Wrong!

Succeeding beyond expectation

They said you would give up
Prove them wrong: stand strong!

They said you would fail
Prove them wrong: succeed!

They said your marriage wouldn’t work
Prove them wrong: make it work.

They said your life is impossible
Prove them wrong: make it possible

They said you have nothing more to offer
Surprise them with new and innovative ideas

They said no one has ever done or achieved it before
Prove them wrong: do it and achieve it

They said there is no way
Prove them wrong: find a way

They said it is over for you
Show them you are just getting started.

They said they have given up on you.
Shock them: don’t give up on yourself.

They said you can’t walk a mile
Prove them wrong: run ten miles

Whatever they said against you
Prove them wrong: be unstoppable.

Christmas – More than just the birth of a Baby

Christmas poem

Christmas poem

Yes, it is Christmas once again
To some it’s a gain and others a pain
But what a joy it is to those who know!

People from all around the world
All walks of life
All races and tribes
Celebrate the birth of a special Baby

But more than just the birth of a baby
To a young Jewish virgin lady
Over two thousand years ago
Christmas is the coming of Divinity to humanity
The birth of the Saviour of the world

The one who is called Immanuel – God with us
Born of the Holy Spirit, fully God and fully man
He became the baby that changed the world

It is Christmas
A celebration of the birth of the Redeemer
God’s greatest Gift to the world
Ushering in the hope of eternal life

On a day like this
Many people will eat and drink
But beyond the partying and reveling
Forget not the essence of His birth
He was born to Save…

It was written of Him before hand
He would save His people from their sins
But alas His own rejected Him
They refused Him as the Messiah

What a loss to them
But their loss became the gain of the world
To as many as receive Him
To them He gave the power to become the sons of God.
In him the promise to Abraham became fulfilled
In you shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.

It is Christmas, the birth of a Saviour
The unveiling of The Way to God
The Truth and the Light
Saviour, Redeemer…
The Lamb who takes away the sins of the world.

Living Life In God’s Name I

This life is more than a game.
I will have to live it in God’s name.
I will live for only His purpose.
And for all He will ever propose.

I will give it all my time.
And put in all my dime.
I will never like to give up.
No matter how big the hiccup.

I know it will not be so easy
Neither can the road be rosy
But I’m ready to meet the marvel
No matter how far I’ll have to travel.

One thing I will have to tell you:
You will see me come through
Has it ever been done before?
I am ready to do much more.

That it can be well achieved
That I have long perceived
The eyes of flesh may not see it
But by faith I can see every bit

It would not have to be so long
Before we would tell who is wrong
I have not said I’m always right
But I can’t give up the good fight.

It is one thing to get a thing started
And yet another to get it completed
I know that He who has set me on
Is still there to keep me moving on.
