When countenance is not familiar

Complexion denies the interior

Why sad?

Your smile is deceptive

Warmness seems to vacate your premise

Your quietness is not lowliness

Your quietness speaks neither of loneliness

Your reflection echoes for help


Why sad? Why worry?

The old man is not asking for food

Yet, the old man is satisfy with empty stomach

Yes, the worries of this world satisfies him

This is contradiction of the Lord’s word

“Seek ye the kingdom of God first…” Matt. 6:33

This is the “main” street


The Lord said”Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof” (Matt. 6:25-33).


You neglect the “main” for the extra

And attract the extra for the “main”

The “main” is all it requires

The “main” wipes the tears of the heart

The “main” soothes the soul

The “main” holds the recipe for happiness and joy

It holds all other things

Now not tomorrow, incline to the “main”


Why still sad?

Burst to the Lord, says Jeremiah (Jer. 33:3)

Experience the joy of the Lord

Enjoy the unfathomable of His greatness

Worries architect disappointment

Disappointment brings sorrow and weeping

Weeping disheartening and blinds the thought of the heart

Vex the soul and spirit

Harbor’s the incurables

Blinds the physically and the spirituality of man

The “main” echoes help for cure


Still sad? Cheers

For, the good news speaks

For your sake, Jesus manifest

To heal your broken heart

To liberate you from captivity of worrisome

To liberate you from self oppression

To comfort you

Gives you a new song

Now you can see through faith in Him, says Isaiah 61

Cling to the “main” today

Christ is Lord

Cheers and worry no more
