Christian Poem: Life's Reflection
New Year’s resolution has been a tradition that most people make every year. It has also been a tradition that some people cannot keep up to their promises made and most likely, it has been secretly kept to themselves. However, there’s more than just a new year’s resolution. You can evaluate and reflect first on what happened to your life in the previous year. Then make a list of your target goals and plans on how to achieve it. Just pray and ask God’s guidance about your plans that He will lead you to the right direction. Do things according to His will. I also want to share with you an excerpt from my 200 lines poem entitled “Life’s Reflection”.
Life’s Reflection (Excerpt)
There are times in our life that we don’t understand
We often wonder “Why does it need to happen?”
To lose something that we love and cherish
To lose an opportunity that is so good and true
To lose somebody who is young and bright
To lose the riches that means everything to us
Stabbed at the back by a friend and co-worker
Suddenly fired by an unreasonable boss
Crashed in a car accident by a drunkard man
Murdered a family by a psychopath from nowhere
Robbed out by a whole irresponsible gangster
Left all alone in turmoil and misery
We felt so much pain and anger in our hearts
We felt so alone grieving for the lost
The lost of something so important to us;
We felt so many burdens in our shoulder
We felt betrayed, anguished and unsafe
Feeling shaky that it might happen again
We sometimes hear ourselves asking God
“Why such tragedy happens to good people?”
“Why gave us trials that is too heavy?”
“Why do we feel so alone?”
“Why does it have to happen to us?”
“What have we done to deserve this?”
Now before He answers us with our doubtful questions
He then asks us “Why should I not give you these trials?”
“Why didn’t you cast your burden upon me?”
“Don’t you believe in me?” Where is now your trust?
“Why do you feel alone? Don’t you have faith in me?”
“Why not you, my child and why it should be given to others?”
“Haven’t you thought that others may have their own too?”
As we listen slowly and reflect to all His words
We came to realize our unworthiness in His sight
We regret for being one of those doubtful Thomas
We felt the shame of having so little faith on Him
We have seen how we disgrace His glorious name
We recognize our transgression and wickedness
We are sorry for our disobedience and indiscretion
We lament over the guilt of our sinfulness
We wept for His forgiveness and mercy
He has reminded us that in our weakness He is our strength
When we felt weak, helpless and alone
It was those times that He stands and carries us through
It was those times that He tells us “He is there for us”
It was those times that He wants us to trust in Him
To trust in His power and not by our own understanding
It was those times that He wants us to see His presence
Because it was those times that we have forgotten Him
Behold that by the grace of our loving God
You shall find peace and happiness in your heart
Fear no one for He is always there to protect you
Have faith and give all your hope on Him
By His mercy and love you will endure everything
Feel blessed for you shall find your true riches in heaven.
