I’M A NEW CREATION!!!!

I’M A NEW CREATION!!!!

It wasn’t worth me throwing a fit
With emotions intensely fluctuating
Silence was the other word for my pain
Feeling emotionally depleted,
Sometimes, I sat down and thought
How far will this go! Is it a test?
If so, what was I to learn?
What trait was I to develop?
Patience, Humility, Temperance
Maybe all!
The situation just got worse,
Lost for words, silence kicked in
Now in a battle, a spiritual one
I profess my love for God
But yet if I do not love, I don’t know God
Because God is love
No, I didn’t love my neighbour
But for sure, I said I knew and loved the Lord
And as a matter of fact, I did!
I am human, I fall
But, does that mean I can’t rise
Of course not! I haven’t been left an orphan
When my Lord left, He said he’d come back to me
He’d ask my daddy to give me another advocate
The Spirit of truth, whom I know and will be in me
Isn’t that a delight! And now I’m a new being
A new creation in my Lord, Jesus Christ
My old has passed away and behold my new has come
I’ve been reconciled to God! I’m the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ
I’m learning to separate my neighbour from their actions
To love the neighbour and not zero in on their wrong doings to me
Because while I was still a sinner, my Lord died for me
And now I know what true love is.
The love I should extend to my neighbour
Praise the Lord! I’m a new creation

The poem above was written on Friday 26th February, 2021. Earlier in the week, I was reflecting on some of the actions I had taken to cope with some issues I was going through emotionally. These issues started in late January and were between me and a beautiful young girl. She’s not too young but she is younger than me. She really did the most to annoy me. I decided I would cut off communication with her because whenever I had to talk to her, I didn’t like the expression on my face. I just didn’t have any interest in talking to her but in some situations, I had to. So to keep peace, I thought silence was the best solution.

Actually, silence wasn’t the best thing in this case. After critical reflection, I saw how terrible I had been. I mean, I am older so I should’ve taken responsibility. Of course apologizing was a hard one but I had to swallow my pride. Imagine apologizing, to a “younger person” for avoiding communication. Let alone an older person.

Anyway, I felt an urge to do some writing in the evening. After writing that piece, I felt so relieved and my heart was at peace. I later arranged to have a discussion with the young girl and we sorted the issues. We are at peace now. As an adult, I should have approached the situation with more wisdom but I thank God for He gave me the courage and gave me a new start that evening.
