A Heart of Praise

Nature___Seasons___Spring_Sunny_morning_on_a_spring_field_067755_

Thank You for Your sufficient grace

Every time I come to seek Your face

In all my life and all my days

I desire to always give you praise

I am nothing but a short-lived grass

My life may wither just as fast

But in You, my Rock, I give my trust

The One whose love for me’s so vast

Today, I can say that I am exceedingly blessed

For God has given me His very best

With His righteousness, I have been dressed

My heart’s now filled with peace and rest

Forever I am not the same

For in my heart a Savior came

In He came to take the pain

The sun’s forever there even through the rain!

Since the day our eyes first met

I have been dreaming of you and me

Things and dates, I now forget

For all your smiles filled my memory

Why does it feel so right?

When all others say its inappropriate

Its getting really hard to fight

I’m starting to feel inaccurate

I feel a bit awkward and uneasy

But not really bitter and unhappy

These dreams of you and me

Keep struggling for actuality

Is love really this surreal?

Both high and wide, so deep yet so simple

the bliss I feel makes the wounds to heal

Every time you’re beside me my world trembles

 

Change your heart to change the world

To change the world. That is the calling of SOARLIKEEAGLE, my one and only beloved blog. It is true. One can change the world by beginning with himself. Renew the mind, purify the heart, change yourself before attempting to change the world. As the song said, “If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself then make the change” -Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson.

Changing the world, in its own terms, may not be so easy. But I think, it may not be as hard as well. Not impossible neither unreachable. If every man and every woman will change for the better, maybe thus the world will change. If everyone will make an impact even to only two or three persons in his lifetime, maybe that two or three people will make an impact also to two or three people. We don’t know. But that’s better than doing nothing. Remember, nothing is impossible to him who believes.

ART FOR NOTHING

This world is like a mountain.
Your echo depends on you.
If you scream good things,
the world will give it back.
If you scream bad things,
the world will give it back.
Even if someone speaks badly about you,
speak well about him.
Change your heart to change the world

The Author of Color

The Author of Colors

From the shades of fall to the glow of spring
His beauty and glory is undoubtedly seen
He sends forth life to everything by hue
And breathes vigor to anything melancholy and blue
He casts a league of colors behind the cerulean sky
To tell the end of the rain, time for radiant light
Turning lives once somber as ebony
To new creation white as ivory

After the Rain

Image

The thick, dark clouds are moving away

As they reveal the sun’s strong prevailing rays

Darkness and gloom came to a fading end

The rainbow appears, humbly and gloriously bent

I hear the music of birds’ chirping

Of little children shouting and singing

I can’t hide the joy of seeing the sun once anew

A blessing of hope, magnifying daylight’s value

Dull days and cold nights are over

Now dancing under sunlight’s warm harbor

For once I thought, life for me is already dawning

There maybe pain in the night, but joy comes in the morning.

By God’s Grace

I woke up.

This is really great but

I didn’t deserve this.

You know, yesterday was a bad day

I mean, the day wasn’t bad, but I was.

All I did was be angry and selfish,

Complain and be depressed is the best I can do.

But enough of this feeling

My God is good that’s why I’m alive today

My life, my strength, my hope comes from Him

He chose to love me knowing the depths of my heart

Here I am loving and sharing, alive and well

Only by God’s grace.

Daily Prompt: Life Line (To All the Hands)

You have more to do than just exist

There’s more to you than just to miss

To work and tire are not your only tasks

You and your brother has work, so vast

Keep the fractured soul from breaking

Preserve those tears and stop them from falling

Clap a cluster, tap a shoulder and hold another

Show your owner’s feelings~compassionate and tender

Do not yield to the clingy, betraying lusts

For other lives  may crumble just as fast

Do the finest of the best that you can

Change the world, help somebody, transform a man
