Season of spring…a time for all green to return, all flower to blossom, all smile return to the faces after a long cold grey.
Yet, 11 March’2011 bring another furious storm. How can one fathom why it have to happen…who is at fault and what need to be done. All of the sudden, everyone setting their eyes on Japan. It brings tears to my eyes… many has lost their life, their love ones, their home, their business, their career and their future. The future they spend years of hard work to build. Indeed, Japan is a country filled with amazing people, who spend their life working on what they believe. And, till today…even after such cruel storm, they are still doing their very best to live with dignity and great determination.
I cry for God’s mercy for people in Japan…for the land of rising sun. I pray that God will restore the land and the people…bringing them new life, new hope and new future.
Eph 2:3-5 (NIV) …Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved.
I am working on a painting…title “Assurance of Spring”
The last few grey sheets still stirring
Far beyond what your hand can restore
The storm swipe away castle of comfort
Scrip to basic like bloom is never before
Hearts crying how long the winter will stay
Minds wondering how much more you can take
Then, you’ll be like the snowdrop flower
Humble in your posture yet courages
Then, you’ll break through that thick snow
Spreading your bud and rise again
Then, you’ll declare to the world your new life
Because God will be your strength
The old has gone and new will surely come
Because God mercy will calm the storm
In new life you found hope like living stream
And you will never be thirsty again
