Simply a wit

I asked God, if at all I had the ability to read a person’s mind, won’t it Simplify my life?

God replied with a grin, then you will end up being alone like me.

Creatures of the creator

PhotoGrid_1517754956518.jpg

Look around and see the beauty in nature,

The sun rises and sets but can never fall out of sky,

The gigantic mountains have set their boundaries up till the skies,

And the oceans so vast can swallow you without a hint,

Not just the sky, mountain and ocean so deep,

But also the living creatures, how beautifully are they made!

 

From creating noble lions, humble insects and hardworking ants,

Poisonous snakes, friendly dogs and poultry to eat,

Fishes in deep waters and birds that fly,

Elegant deers, giraffes, zebras and elephants,

With patches and stripes and fur and trunk, how meticulously are they done.

 

You may be fat or thin or short or tall,

You too are the creator’s doll,

Love yourself, you are perfectly made,

Love others too for they are a Creature like you,

When you see God’s creation around,

It’s a dash of his aesthetic hand on them,

When you see the beauty in nature,

Close your eyes and thank God for them.

Inscrutable life

Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry,

Sometimes we have just nothing to say,

Sometimes we are thankful, sometimes we are not,

Sometimes we run away and sometimes we stay,

Sometimes we are lost, sometimes we find a way,

Sometimes we run in vain, sometimes we are just fine,

Sometimes we groan in pain of being left behind,

We never settle in a valley or a peak too high,

But we can get better as the days pass by,

This Inscrutable life has taught to welcome the unexpected,

To be more resilient and to be less reluctant,

To be more grateful and less regretful.

Candid thoughts!

I look through my lenses,

To capture your moments,

And yes, you are unaware of being my subject,

You might sneeze, doze or rub your nose,

I capture it all without a fuss,

I don’t know how Candid you are,

But when I see your pictures I see how funny you are.

A dream vacation

I want to spend some time with you,

Away from the traffic noise, far away from the busy roads,

Where I can hear only you.

 

I want to take you to a place I know,

Far away from the people we know,

Where your whispers can be heard.

 

We can stand on the sea shore,

And hear the waves roar,

Where we can settle our disputes and take a stand on our own.

 

We can watch the sun disappear in the Horizon,

And marvel at how the orange and gold sunset blend,

Calming the voices one by one that was once barely heard.

 

I looked in the mirror and promised to spend some time with her,

To give her the chance to voice her views,

Only to see how great she grows.

Losing Dad

It was a usual Sunday afternoon after church,

Who thought it would be the last time I’d see you alive,

You knew something was wrong with you,

All I knew was you were gasping to live,

Never knew that’d be the last time you’d breath,

You left us in Shock, you left us in misery,

You left us behind to a more peaceful world,

While we are still trying to live our lives without you.

When you are powerless

Trust in the lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight.

-Proverbs 3:5-6

I have been going through a tough time of lately, some of the things that disturbed me was when people started to take important decisions in my life, when my career seemed stagnant, my eagerness to pursue my goal at the cost of my job and most importantly I felt so powerless to change anything concerning me. I was surprised by the way I mumbled and grumbled about what’s happening to me. Well, mostly it’s the battle in my mind that sometimes resulted in spitting venom on people around me. Cruel. right? But, most of us lose our cool and go berserk. We are not actually angry with our close ones, but we do it out of frustration to show them that we are not fine. I was sure if these emotions lasted in me, I would end up getting depressed. I thought I shouldn’t give in to it and that’s when this verse from the Bible came handy.

The verse from Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding“. Trusting God is not so easy, especially when you see things falling apart; but it’s not impossible too, why I say this because the following line says “and lean not on your own understanding“. The problem arises when we start trusting our own understanding by merely looking at how things are going around and unfortunately we believe what we see. When we start believing what we see it’s so obvious that we stop trusting God. So what I learnt here is – to stop believing my understanding about a situation because it’s only one side to a story and mostly an exaggerated version of the real condition that runs in my mind. When I realised that I am not wise enough to deal with it, when I knew that I reached a point where I couldn’t help myself, it became much much easier for me to trust God with all my heart.

The perks of trusting God wholeheartedly is abundant, for when we allow him to handle our current situation, he gives us hope for a better future. He gives us assurance that nothing can go beyond his control. Eventually, we end up committing our plans, goals and interests to him to seek his will, that brings us to the next verse- Proverbs 3:6, which says “in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” God knows it’s your life and he cares about it more than you do, so he also cares about your interests and goals too. After all he’s our creator, who knows us better than the creator?

Having done all that’s said in these verses, how is my life now?

People still try to take important decisions concerning my life, my career is still stagnant, I am still keen on pursuing my goals but I don’t feel powerless anymore. The condition is same but I am not the same person that I was before, my perspective towards my life changed, I don’t mumble or grumble anymore rather I learnt to thank God for all that I have and slowly I realised once upon a time I prayed to God for a job that I have today, so why should I murmur when it’s not fine. People make decisions for me, but if not God, who is going to make it work? So, I just thank God for keeping better blessings in store for me though I can’t see it.

There is still turmoil around, but that does not disturb my peace and that does not stop me from foreseeing a prosperous future with him.

 

 

Renew your hope

Wake up with a heavy heart,

With concerns that’s tearing you apart.

Head filled with questions that brings sorrow,

About the intimidating tomorrow.

Casting them unto my lord’s hands I feel light,

I empty my heart and now ready to take up the fight.

As I wipe my tears and get up,

Courage and hope is refilled in my cup.

How awesomely made!

Does a feeling of dejection engulf you now?

Want to change everything but don’t know how?

Trying to battle loneliness and all its hues,

Feeling worthless over your existence on earth?

I call you a special one, my friend.

Don’t wonder but ask me why,

I’ll give you a reason, you’ll know your worth.

You are a Craft of God, his beloved son and daughter,

Created with utmost care and attention.

When a King has created you, It is for a greater purpose,

If you don’t discover it, it’s your fault.

Why worry when all your concerns are taken care of,

Why doubt when God loves you like no one will ever do.

After all,

When you don’t embrace yourself, who else will do?
