HE TOOK MY PLACE

HE TOOK MY PLACE

“You’re free to go!”
Shouted the jailer.
For a moment there
I needed an inhaler.
I couldn’t breathe.
Can this be true?
I hear my name
Over and over again.
I’m not going to lie
I’m afraid to die
When I hear shouts
“Crucify! Crucify!”

Don’t you know?
I am Israel’s hero!
I lead a revolution
There is no confusion
Never mind the mistakes
A few men their lives I take
This is the hour
I am Israel’s saviour!
The other two are not so lucky
Only I got set free
They all must love me?

Walking past the prison gates
I catch a glimpse of the bloodied face
The Man who took my place.
Under a crown of thorns
Body bruised and torn
I cannot unsee.
I shiver and stare.

Suddenly
He turns and catches my hardened eyes
“Barabbas,” softly He cries
“Follow me.”

Indie Delight!

Of Sunsets

11/03/2021

One of the rare moments I get to watch the sun set. I am hardly outdoors these days, what with working from home. Even less often is going to places where the setting sun meets the sea.
Just taking a moment to record this. Snapped at arguably one of the top ten sunset spots in the world.

Imagine being alone in a foreign country.
Imagine getting a little lost.
Imagine knowing that someone is following you.
Imagine

How would you deal with this?

It happened to this young lady. Thankfully she got out safely. To deal with the trauma, this singer-songwriter did just that – write a song and sing about it. Check it out on her website. She’s going to release a video about it too. Stay tuned!

Podcast Plug

16/11/2020

Once in a while I will do a plug.
This time I want to share about a podcast by this amazing young woman.

Deborah Chan has over 12 years experience in community development projects and missions work. Bearer of a Bachelors in Mass Communication with double majors in Journalism and Cultural Studies, she is also a freelance writer and sustainable tourism consultant. Her writing has appeared in national and international publications including Travel & Leisure, Asian Geographic and the Rough Guides. Deborah has also authored “Live to Last” a heart-gripping memoir written to inspire youth and young adults to step up and step out to make a difference in this world.

Now she has launched a podcast. Worth nipping over and having a listen. Together with her husband, they have launched Built to Last – apt for the time now.

Staying Serene

05/11/2020

Have no anxiety about anything,

but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving

let your requests be made known to God.

And the peace of God,
which passes all understanding,

will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6,7

Overcoming Anxiety

02/11/2020

Taking our mind captive … Intentionally focusing … Initially it might require discipline.
An activity I used to do, and which I periodically return to, is to make a daily list of at least 20 things to be thankful for. It really does help… Check out this message at the 37th minute on the recent Skyline Online Sunday Service.
Today’s thanks then… Freshly picked home-grown mint.

Just a sprig… a few leaves in hot water… makes a welcoming drink any time of the day.

Great way to start and end a day.
A simple post in overcoming anxiety.
Thankful!
