No Poems

Today I don’t have a muse for poetry. 

I just want to let you know, my reader, that God is mighty! Even in the most draining and unresolve circumstances He rises above all to show His glory….JUST TRUST HIM

Fighting

I’ve been fighting with myself

Of how I’m supposed to act
If to act like a servant
Or like a wicked one
You may know the struggle
That I’m talking within
The one that draws the line
Between walking in holiness
Or drifting to sin
Where our spirit wants to be
Like Christ Himself
But our flesh take us away 
Going everywhere else
What should I do in this dilema of life?
When I want to serve and act
Like Christ
But the circumstance of hurt and pain
Bring us to a place 
Where we want to explode in uncivil ways
That is the moment I stand still
I choose to trust and kneel
Where only my prayer 
Is the sure thing I need
To keep walking like Christ
And to His Word heed…

A Heart

   

I have asked for a new heart
One more grounded
Less apart
From Your Word
From Your presence and grace
One that will be keen
To the direction You bring
To everything in my life
A healed and healthy heart
Not one in pieces
With broken pieces bonded tight
I want a new one
No residual of scars 
Of what I’ve gone through life
A heart that separates what is real from false
A heart that trusts only in You, oh Lord
A heart that will not open
To no random person in wind
But open to the one You have separated for me
A new heart I plea!
Change mine is not in one piece
For You are the healer
The Divine doctor that gives me the heart
That at Your rhythm will beat…

REACT!!!

The snares of the enemy 

Bring us so much pain
When we distance from God
To find things our own way
When we think we can manage
And truly believe
We have inner strength
To escape out and succeed
Ignoring the warnings
All coming from above
Repeating the disapproval
That sin has from God
No matter how prayerful
We think we can be
Our prayer is hindered 
When we are living in sin
Until full repentance
And a firm decision is made
To depart from sin
And to surrender our ways
The work of the Lord we want in our lives
Is on hold waiting for the time
Until our hearts surrender 
And recognized
The reason God send His Son 
For us to die
Was to live for Him
And the Word that is our guide
To honor Christ who sacrifice 
That we may receive eternal life

A Love

I love you
Eventhough it hurts
All the pain
Did not blow my love away
It is still beating
Strong with each pulse
Strong love you don’t know
It is not human to love again
When wounds cover
Still opened in dismay
It is a love only from Divine
A love only given by JesusChrist
The love that trascended
Time and space
Overpassing any hurt and pain
A love given so freely to me
Even when I don’t succeed
I have the unconditional fountain of love
That is God in me

In A Moment

In a moment
Where the silence abides
My heart quietly gives you its time
When words don’t have
It’s smooth flow
I lay in Your presence
Waiting on You, Oh Lord!
In a momnent
Where roads to take
Seem to have unclear ways
I hold on to Your hand
Let Your Spirit lead the way
When I can’t handle another step
I cried to You
You carry me
Renew my strength
In a moment
Where caos surrounds
My heart overwhelms
Distress in me abounds
I accept the peace
You spoke about
In a moment
When I think all hope is gone
I go back to the moment
Where in your presence
I was renewed
I grew strong

I Look To Him

I will look beyond
I will see the greatness of God
Where my peace lies
And my comfort stays
Where I don’t fear trouble
Where I am not dismayed
I will look to Him
Who saved my soul
The Eternal and gracious
Jesus, our Lord
Whom to all the praise has to be
My Christ, My Saviour, My King

©Y.R.

You Will Make It

Thinking about God my heart sinks
Yes, it sinks.
I am confronted with myself
I realize His greatness and eternal love
I stare in awe
Of my sinful condition
How He sent Christ to cleanse me from all
I meditate on His Word
Every letter; every phrase
Knocking at my heart
Asking to abide
So its work may start.

Then there comes my troubles
My mind wants to influence
What God Himself has said
It’s the best for my life
Surrendering to Christ
Letting Him change inside
It’s that battle that takes my peace
I, knowing what is good to me
Choosing things that break me
Not nourish me
Spiritually, I mean.

Then my soul ponders some more
On His grace
The one we don’t deserve
Why? Why would He be like that?
When my sinful nature reveals that
I keep failing Him
No righteous in me
It doesn’t matter to Him
The times my sinfulness makes me sink
His loving grace lifts me
I am certainly not perfect at all
But to His grace I cling all day long
For when I can’t He says I am here
I will carry you through
You will make it, My Dear.

Will

Why do I fight?
What good is it to my life?
The struggle inside
Of doing my will
Or following Christ’s
Hard I excuse
Bringing to my human mind
Incomprehension of the Divine
For it is not my mind who needs
To bring reasoning to this
But my spirit in me
Listen to His Word
Accept and keep
Though my ways may seem good
The future is only known to Him who
Is the beginning and the end
The maker of heaven and earth
Him who always knows what’s best
I relinquish my will to His way
Having assurance in me
That His will is always for my good
Even when I don’t think

That Moment

That moment
Where I see things different
Where I notice the spark
Revelation from divine
Where Christ’s light shines
Oh how He opens our eyes!
To see what we didn’t see
Clouded by all the turmoil within

It’s that moment
When I realize
The pain and suffering
Changed something in my life
I see all clear inside of me
All the lies of the enemy I believed
And now with the truth
My soul receives freedom
My heart fills with peace
I don’t longer see the pain as a burden
But a lesson to keep
That what God does
Is always better for me

It’s that moment
That I can rejoice with praise
God shows why is worth the pain
To surrender our wishes and dreams
For what He has is greater
Than now we can see
Walking in the path of Christ
That in every situation
His light may shine

A Song

Theres a song birthing in me
One I want to sing
To the top of my lungs
I want to shout this song
A song of freedom
To my Lord
Express through it
What I feel inside
Express the gratitude
Of His work in my life
I want to sing
Just bring through my song
An ultimate praise of joy
That glorifies my God
That all may hear
And even sing along
Expressing how wonderful is God
Who helps through all

©Y.R.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

It’s a time to reflect on the things that matter the most. God is always with us. Let Christ in our hearts show to others with love in this season. God bless you all.

New Victory

I have risen
My light shines
In the presence
Of Him, my God divine
I have understood
The greatness of Your presence
The faithfulness in You
That in all things
You are all in control
That from the pit
You rescued my soul
Oh how much I give
Glory and praise
To Christ, my Saviour, my Lord
The renewer of my strength
The One who makes all things new
With the fullness of His Love
A love so powerful
No one can match
No human on Earth
Can ever surpass
It is that love
That fills me indeed
That opens my eyes
That the truth I may see
That all that matters
Is who is by my side
My God the Mighty Warrior
Who wins all battles of mine

Let My Tears Roll

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/964/43295595/files/2014/12/img_9508.jpg
Let my tears roll
For I have suffered long
Keeping all bottled up
Pretending nothing is going on

Let my tears roll
Have them cleanse out my soul
Leaving burdens on the throne
Where all can be changed
My sorrow and pain
Every drop take away
All confusion and dismay

Let my tears roll
Change my hardened heart
Into a new flesh one

Let my tears roll
So I be renewed
All things made new
Breathing again life

Let my tears roll
Let my soul be lifted up
Higher than ever above
Up to the heavens
Where you are Oh, Lord

Let my tears roll
Let your presence fill
All that’s empty in me
I want to see your glory
Powerful as I never lived

Let my tears roll
I want to be free
Pouring out my heart
I find freedom indeed

Let my tears roll
Until all is taken away
Till I receive new strength
In the presence of my Christ
Who gives me victory in my pain

Hope for Them

Looking back
At the kindness given
At all that has been forgiven
To those that hurt my life
I come to realize
The great challenges of this path
The road of giving
Not waiting for a return
Giving more than a human wants
Being like Christ
Even when it hurts
Trusting God will heal, restore
And give life again
Hoping God’s touch would come to people’s heart
That for once they would understand
That soon they can realize
The only solution for their life
Is Christ’s Eternal Life
It’s my hope for them to find
What has been my greatest gift in life
The love unconditional to abide
And mercy freely received
Of Christ, the Savior
The one that changes
Makes a life complete

A Writer’s Cry

There’s a writer’s cry
Coming from within
The storm inside
Wanting to exit

There are so many words
The ones reflected in our minds
Those that stop and can’t come out
At the moment when to write

It is a constant battle
That we face each day
Having so many words
And these cannot say

How do we set them free? I ask
From both prisons of soul and mind
One keeps them trapped in emotions
The other keeps them from our uttering voices

Can this be fair?
I do not think
The battle a writer
Has with his gift within

Yes, this gift
So precious in its own
We take the world
And through our words transform

How can I let it go?
How can I keep it trapped?
There is so much to say
So many lives to impact

I will not, I tell the writer in me
I will use what God has given me, my gift
I will share the words of the greatness He has done
Through my words, YOU, my reader can meet His Son

My Cry

If anyone hears my cry

I want you to know

This cry is not of sorrow

It’s a cry for help

Coming from the deepness of me

Crying Lord help

I need You indeed!

It is not only now that I cry

It is continuous repetition inside

A daily prayer calling to the Divine.

He who knows all that I can’t see

The One that can fulfill all my needs

I cry Lord, help me please!

It is my cry of dependance

It is my cry of submission

That in the midst of trials and temptations

It is He only who can deliver.

I cry because there is no one else

Silent to all others are my words

It is He who hears

This cry from my soul silent in tears.

Tired

20140706-163030-59430787.jpg

I am tired!!!!!!!!
My internal scream whose echo rumbles through my inside like a massive nonstopable earthquake. I am not tired of working, studying or the daily. That tiredness is physical and psychological. It is normal and comes with this thing we live every day called life. The tiredness that shakes my soul is a deep one. It is one that no spa, medication, meditation, or excersise can relax. Is that one that consumes the soul.
That tiredness that comes from trying on my own. Trying to submit to the Word and see how it does not sink into my heart but like a slow passing wind drifts out of my mind. Then without notice a stronger wind pushes me into what I do not want to do. I am tired of pretending I can handle it. Like moving sand I sink slowly in the idea I can control the situation. I am tired of not getting into my head that I need more of Christ! That without Him I am lost, abandoned and in a pit. I am tired of going into the Israelite cycle of sin, repentance and forgiveness and back again. What can I do? My heart is burdened. My eyes are full of tears which refuse to come out from the shame of one more time realizing I failed in my attempt to please God. I am tired of being a stumbling block for others those that looked to me in a time where I was firm on the rock which is Jesus Christ.
Now the question that rises is what can I do? Keep relying on myself and keep believing that I can control the situation? Will I give up and lay aside the wonderful salvation and eternal life Christ has given me?
Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!
I REFUSE TO!!!!!!!!!!
If I place on one side of the scale what the world gives me and on the other what Christ has given me. I would tell you the abundance mercy, grace, love, joy and security that Christ has given me outweighs all. Not by an ounce or pound but by the weight of His blood that was shed for me. It’s my place to honor that blood, that sacrifice that was given for me. I have to honor the God whose love can never be measured.
Tiredness comes. I, as many of you, may be tired of the fight and sometimes wanting to give up wanting just to rest from the fight. But what would be the point of receiving a rest that is temporary and artificial and its end is death. Tiredness is there. The pain is there. What I chose is to give everything to Christ even if it hurts me. It may take some time and maybe restrictions or even giving up things. All comes to that moment on the Cross and the sacrifice that was given for me. In the end the benefits outweigh the present pain.

Romans 7:15-24
For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory…

That Start

Is so hard this new start!
For I don’t know on which entrance of the route to stand
I want to go forward so bad
But the battle inside puts a stop on the start

How can I go against this?
I am not strong in any way
My strength fades with the blow of the wind astray
What can I do to not feel what’s in?

I want to fight
With the courage of the knowledge of Christ
But inside me courage there is none
Everything inside me is weak not strong

I have lost myself
The one that came at the feet of the Master
With crying and even laughter
At every moment counting on Him

Perhaps that’s my entire struggle
That I have lost my way
To the feet of the Master
Where I would go every day

If I only could push myself
Back to that path
My soul would be delivered
From the bounds that don’t let it start

I can only cry to you, Master!
Come and help!
For it is only you
Who can help me start over and be renewed!

On This Day: I’ll Wait

20140426-125250.jpg

I wrote this some weeks ago and for some unknown reason neglected to post it. Maybe it wasn’t the time. Maybe now it is…

         Wanting to distract my mind from daily pressures I sat at the seashore of the wonderful Arabian Sea. A marvelous spectacle of God’s majestic creation. Seating there I observe as the seagulls line up as if in a straight military line formation looking straight ahead. They were like contemplating the sea. There attention to it was to be admire. They’d were waiting as for the sea to bring them something. The seagulls just stared in observation. What a coincidence with me! I was like them just waiting! I was waiting for my thoughts to get settled. For these to organize at the same rhythm that I see the waves dance to. It worked for a moment but discouragement wanted to come in. How many times did I sat infront of life just waiting? In many ocassions that was the only thing I did because as the seagulls I stood observing what God will bring my path.
There are episodes in our lives that we are like those seagulls just waiting. Waiting for the miracle, the change, the showing of the fruit of our labor. Just waiting we have done everything. Our efforts are exhausted our prayers just have one song, God when?
I see the seagulls starring in expectation not only waiting without hope they know something is coming the sea will bring them food what they need.
Then comes to mind what God tells us, “If I take care of the birds in the sky wouldn’t I take care of you?” Sometimes we are willing to wait but our wait is not in absolute expectation but in skepticism. Our hope is low and our patience is lower. This when the enemy wants to take the last bit of hope we may have. It is at that moment where the Word of God becomes our strength. Our wait turns into a gentle breeze. In the least expected moment God ends our wait and we receive what we have been waiting for.

On This day remember waiting on God is worth the wait.
