My Haibun and Haiku or Senyru below:

 
Most Sashay through life without giving little thought to the end.
Time, also known as the world; more than breath, less than an illusion.
God’s design is all in all. We desire yet wonder what we yearn.

Purpose of life be
Happy in eternity
Know Love and Serve God

Ask, and it shall be given you:
seek, and you shall find:
knock, and it shall be opened to you.”

Moment of Truth …

Death is the moment of Truth!

Why is it so morbid to think of death?

Is it because we are afraid of the truth.

Life, on the other hand, is a pleasant subject, we have high expectations, hopes for happiness, and delusions that it will never end.
As the years go by, that moment of truth gets closer and nearer.
We push it away, but why?

The reason is, we don’t understand our purpose in life. What is our mission?

Simply put, it is “To Know, Love and Serve God in this life so we will be happy with Him in Eternity.”

Many Christians seek a lifestyle that speaks the reason for life is for God, to know me, love me and serve me, then they wonder why they fear that moment of truth, DEATH!

The atheist reasoning best explained from an epitaph etched on a gravestone. “All dressed up and no place to go.”

poetry, Word Prompts

Frantic – Never Despair

Word prompt – Frantic  –  My humble advice for what its worth.

People become frantic in life because they don’t know their purpose in life. Seek and you will discover, ask and you will receive. God created humans with an immortal soul and with a definite purpose.

Think about the reason for living; the same for everyone, to Know, Love and Served God in this life so that we will be perfectly happy with Him in the next life.

It is very true that we all have different circumstances, talents, and cultures but it is written within us our goal in life.

Stop again and think about the purpose of life a lesson forgotten that leads to “FRANTIC“!

Knowing, Loving and Serving God is the purpose of our life and the key to fill that empty void we all experience from time to time.

How to Know Him?  Pick up and hold that crucifix in your hands, feel the suffering and you will begin to Know Him. This precious Baby born to us is now dying on the Cross. (Holy Week). Tomorrow is Good Friday, GOOD because He has purchased heaven for us and opened its gates, which were locked.

I hope you have read through this post and down to where you reached my simple Tanka poem about our purpose in life.

Birds soaring up high
to and fro, wanting to know –
discerning purpose
glory to Almighty God
every creature beneath Him

That Void Within Us

The holy season of Christmas is upon us, but first, there is Advent.
Advent a time for preparation; think of it as parents preparing for their new baby, the Christ Child, our Child. The world slept and was unaware of His miraculous birth of the much waited Redeemer so long ago, but today we know! We realize who He Is and was born that first Christmas Day? Therefore we have more of an obligation to prepare this Advent. We read in the Gospel of Luke 12; 47-48 “And that servant who knew the will of his lord, and prepared not himself, and did not according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. [48] But he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. And unto whomsoever much is given, of him much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will demand the more.”

Let’s begin! Let’s Stop, Look and Listen! Stop and look into our soul, do you feel that void? We all have that void something is missing! Now listen, hear that whisper. Listen it’s your guardian angel.

Stop again and think about the purpose of life a lesson today, forgotten. Knowing, Loving and Serving God is our purpose of our life and the key to once and all fill that empty void.

How to Know Him; just pick up and hold that crucifix into your hands, feel the suffering and you will begin to Know Him.
This precious Baby born to us, is now dying on the Cross and for what reason? Ask yourself, why did the Second person (the Word) who was perfectly happy with The First and Third Persons in heaven take Flesh, consent to being born in poverty, on that first Christmas that we are about to remember?

He didn’t have to suffer for us, He could have just willed the gates of heaven to open, and by His, Will could have saved us, but would we appreciate that! No! But, wait! Do we today understand His passion realizing there isn’t any cross that you have endued that He did not take up Himself. Think of this and you will Love Him.

Serve Him this Christmas, make a proper preparation for the newborn King, make Him the King of your family. Teach your children it is NOT all about the presents, but it is all about His PRESENCE.

PARENTS

Never stop praying for your offspring no matter how old they are. The world is pulling the young in the wrong direction, and it is difficult for the youth of today to understand the Truth of their purpose in life, which is to Know God, to Serve Him and to Love Him in this life so we can be happy with Him forever in the next life.

We are all in this fight together against the world, flesh and the devil let us pray for each other and our children. To make our prayers strong, we must unite them in thought; thinking of the entire world.
