SOLEMN bow


CREDITS : kidsprayer.com

Where should one 
put the loads in his life? 

If it's right in FRONT, 
it's like a hurdle that 
can make one stumble down. 

If it's right at the BACK, 
it's like a traitor 
that destroys without warning. 

To feel the weight 
of every burden 
is a rewarding sacrifice 
not a cruel punishment. 

The heavier it becomes 
the closer one can get 
through the doors 
of salvation. 

It will only take 
a candle's flame 
to light up the 
darkened phases of life.

Kneel down
with your eyes closed.
HE
will listen to the weeps
of your heart.

  3. Sometimes, when we close our eyes, we remember things we ought to be.
    The best thing is, He is there, close or open eyes. :D

    1. I know that the title can be mistaken but
      "solemn bow" means a deeper prayer...
      We all have to humble ourselves in GOD's
      holy presence. Thanks for the thoughts.

  21. The Lord doesn't and wouldn't give us hurdles we can't surpass.. :) And yes, the heavier the burdens, the more He shows His love for us as He knows we can go pass it.

  24. nice reflections here. for every punches we get in life, we should pause for a while and pray. the punches will keep rolling yet we stand alright.

  25. Whenever I am weary, or in pain or have problems, I always go to Him. I play "God will make a way", cry and after that all heavy loads are lifted up to Him so I can move on..
