Words on a screen

This last month has caused me to rethink a few  all of my priorities. I found myself going back to the first post on oscarisms.wordpress.com and looking at all the different experiences I’ve had. Most importantly, reading what I have learned through the Word of God over the years.

The main purpose of this blog was for an older Oscar, just incase he got stuck or wanted to thank God he’d have all the information he forgot on the web.

Currently the older Oscar, as compared to the one writing with bad grammar in 2006 is grateful that he started this blog.

I think i’ll start to pen down my life once again. Without the many passwords this time. (I forgot most of them lol)

-Me

So maybe…

So maybe I was a bit too anxious about everything. I completely freaked out when I realized that I wasn’t seeing results in almost all the areas of my life. But I’ve come to realize what Phil 4:6-9 really means.

Learning to Trust God
Learning to Trust God

6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

P.S: Ever notice how I say “so maybe..” for almost every certainty in my life?

Where are You, God??

ISA 46:3 “Listen to me, O house of Jacob,
all you who remain of the house of Israel,
you whom I have upheld since you were conceived,
and have carried since your birth.

4 Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

9 Remember the former things, those of long ago;
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me.

10 I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say: My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.

11 From the east I summon a bird of prey;
from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.
What I have said, that will I bring about;
what I have planned, that will I do

Knocked up

I saw Knocked up (again) some days ago.I find baby movies really interesting. I love the idea of bringing another individual into this World to know God and to be a blessing to others. Sure they don’t show that in the movies but that is exactly what I think when I see a little kid- that as they grow up, they will bring a smile on the Father’s heart.
Bringing up a family is the most interesting part of human lives. And even if you are not having kids, as long as you are investing in the lives of other’s children it is great. Every generation needs Spiritual Mothers and Fathers.

I definitely want to have kids who will live for God. A fearless generation who fall in Love with The Father.

God, who makes things grow.

I was initially going to blog about my dinner with my classfriends that happened on Mondayevening. But something more in terms of importance has come up.After three years of being placed in Dahisar/Borivili , things are about to change.I believethe Lord has used Shannon as a medium to teach/love/correct and encourage us in his Kingdom.

I learned a few days back that Shannon will be moving out as our HC leader and Arun and Samwill be taking over Dahisar and Borivili. Im a bit sad because I will miss the company of who was my mentor for a very crucial part of the begining years. If it hadn’t been for Shan,I would have made a lot of mistakes and if it hand’t been for God I would have had done far greater ones.

I owe a lot to Shan and Farah, but I believe that even though I will miss him in everything I do from now onwards, we have this special bond that will not break just because of this administrative change. Shannon will continue to love and pray for me and I for him and Farah.

Now I look forward to learn and love Arun. Arun and Shannon are not the same persons, so what I learned from Shannon was good, but now I can learn from Arun and Sam, which I think will be good. Basically, we are all under one house, under one shepherd, one Lord all working to further the Kingdom of God. So it doesnt matter if I am under this one or that one.

As Paul writes in 1 Cor 3:1-15
4For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere men?
5What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe-as the Lord has assigned to each his task. 6I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. 7So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. 9For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.

10By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. 11For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work. 14If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. 15If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.

So be it. Let God be the center of attention in my life and not men of God.

God has a knack of messing up plans for His Greater Good.

To God Be the Glory,Honor and Power , Forever and Ever.
Amen.

Fools Heart of Gold

The Lord has endless ways of cheering you up and encouraging you. God speaks to me. He really does. I can hear His voice. Its like nothing you have ever heard before. When He starts nothing else matter. So this is a little for my Saviour.

I see the stars in the dim lit sky

Why am I alone?

You can see the stars a lot better

lying on the ground.

Soon the guilt catches me

the darkness surrounds

and engulfs my soul

I cry out to the one who

brought me with the price of His Own/.

 

It’s hard to see in the night,

especially if I am not standing upright.

Then I hear the most beautiful voice

My Lion, King of Judah roars.

He walks to my wearied soul

Kisses me and raises my head

as I fall in the fullness of His Love

in as much not left alone

he spoke in the voice you will ever know,

“Your Majesty

is called for a much far greater place than the floor.

Arise, take the mountain

for destiny holds is more

for a fools mind knows.

You are Wise in me,

and a fool in the world.

Abide in Me

and I will Abide in you,

and that is all you will ever need to know.”

 

My Expressionist poem

Is it really oursto dictate

the terms and conditions

along the rolling credits

straining to see the imprint

on our lives?

 

Is not a big circle

never ending in its length

its diameter?

so wide and long 

that it can fit it all

the things that seem so endless

and it could fit a thousand letters.

 

It would seem that our lives

are govern’d by the scythe 

waiting to cut the thread

on which rests our life,

and fate decides

where we tread.

But of course there exists

no great folly as fate.

 

Nay we are govern’d

by Destinty

for it doesnt dictate

unlike Fate

as once again

there exists no such a thing.

 

All’s the world a stage

they say,(but)

I say its Improv Everwhere

its every decision you take

at every crossroad you make,

draws you one step close to the edge.

 

Will you embrace the fall

or hold you peace now and forever all?
