10 Things To Do When You Are Utterly Bored

Come on, we all feel bored at some point or the other. Here's a list of things to do when you're not having "the-time-of-your-life":

1. Make prank phone calls. It works all the time.
2. Pretend and walk around as though you are a ninja.
3. Stare at some random object for a minute. Roll yours eyes at least 5 times. Blink wildly for 20 seconds.And then shut them really tight. Repeat in the same order at least 10 times.
4. Go outside and follow the first person you come across.
5. Text message your friend backwards.
6. Keep staring at the back of someone's head till he/she turns around.

7. Talk to yourself in the mirror
8. Walk around in your room without your feet touching the floor.
9. Dance till you are out of breath.
10. Sing your favorite song as loudly as you can.

Wings of the dove

Can I not have wings?
Wings as that of a dove,
Oh, that I would fly away
And be at rest!

Abundant Love

Though I tread,
Broken and shattered,
Upon the valley,
Where the shadow of death lurks.
With tommorow appearing so distant,
Blurred and bleary,
And giving up is easy.
When I'm drowned in pain,
My heart bleeding in distress.
It's not in me to aspire,
As my world comes crashing over.
My strength is faint,
And my body weary.
Lonely and abandoned,
I'm out of words.
Even when I put on a fake smile,
Pretending as if all's good -

You know me inside-out.
And you take me by your side.
You whisper into my ears,
And sing to me a song of love.
Hiding me in your wings,
You lift me up from where I am.
And wrap me in your arms.
Oh, how great is your mercy,
How great is your love!
And so my mouth will praise you,
With my heart filled with gratitude,
I will love you, 
My soul will delight in you.
I'm so glad to have known you!

A Life In Vain

The alarm rings
Announcing the break of daylight
And the day begins
So does the chase
On a mundane day of the year
Yes, it is a day
Morning, afternoon
Evening and night
Moments in time
Moments of a life
Spent on a mission
Mostly on a task to survive
Meeting targets
Crossing expectations
Staying alive
And so the saga continues
Moments become hours
Hours become days
Days turn into years
And years into a lifetime
A life spent chasing
A life less lived
A life in vain.

"I will wait for you" by Official P4CM Poet JANETTE...IKZ

I came across this poem on Facebook and instantly fell for it. Brilliantly written and recited. The poem's about waiting  for true love to happen.

Here's the transcript:

This is getting me by.
So it seemed,
that it was cool,
for everyone to be in a relationship but me.
So I took matters into my own hands
and… ended up with him.
him, who displayed the characteristics of a
cheater, a liar, an abuser, and a thief.
So why was I surprised when he broke into my heart?
I called 911, but I was cardiac-arrested for
aiding and abetting,
’cause it was me who let him in,
claiming we were “just friends.”
It was already decided for me by the first date that
even if he wasn't,
I was gonna make him “the One.”
You know… I was tired of being alone,
and I simply made up in my mind,
that it was about that time
so I decided to drag him along for the ride,
’cause I was always the bridesmaid and never the bride.
virgin in the physical,
but mentally just a grown woman on the corner in heat,
who was tired of the wait,
so I was gonna make him “the One.”
he had a… form of Godliness,
but not much.
But, but, hey, hey, I can change him,
so I’ll take him, I mean he’s close…
Ready to sell my aorta for a quarter,
not knowing the value of it is to be. 
Arteries so clogged with my will,
it blocked His will from flowing through me.
So, I thank Christ that His blood pressure gave this heart an attack,
that flat lined my obscured vision, put me flat on my back.
Through my ignorance, He saw,
so through my sternum He sawed & cracked open my chest
to transplant Psalms 51:10,
a new heart
& a renewed right spirit within.
So now, I fully understand,
better yet, I thoroughly comprehend,
how much I need to wait
for You.
the bad thing is
that I knew he wasn't you from the beginning.
’cause in the beginning was the Word
and he didn't even sound or shine like Your Son
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks,
and all he could whisper was
which meant nothing!
he couldn't even have prayed when I needed him to,
asking him to fast would be absurd,
so, forget about being cleansed & washed with water through the Word.
But I know you,
you are already praying for me.
Even never having met me,
let me assure you,
I will wait
for you.
I will no longer date,
socialize or communicate with carbon copies of you

to appease my boredom
or to quench my thirsty desire I have for attention
 and short-lived compliments from ‘sorta kindas.’
You know, he ‘sorta kinda’ right, but ‘sorta kinda’ wrong?
His first name: Luke,
his last name: Warm.
I won’t settle for false companionship.
I won’t lay in the embrace of his arms,
attempting to find some closeness,
but never feeling so far, far apart
’cause, I just wanna be held.
♫ ‘Cause all I gotta do is say♫
No more ‘almost sessions’ of
‘almost coming close’
passing winks & buying drinks,
and ♫I’ma,
I’ma flirt!♫
Who flirts with the ideology of,
“Can you just tell me how much I can get away with & still be saved?”
No more.
I’ll stay in my bed,
and write poems,
about how I will wait for You.
he won’t even come close,
our fingers won’t even interlock,
we won’t even exchange breath,
’cause I have thoughts that I’ve ‘saved as’ in a file that God has only equipped you to open.
I will no longer get waited down,
from so-called friends & family talks,
about the concern for my biological clock
when I serve the Author of Time.
Who is not subject to time,
but I’m subject to Him.
He has the ability to stop, fast-forward, pause, or rewind at any given time.
if we could role play,
you would be Abraham & I would be Sara,
or you can be Isaac & I can be Rebecca–a servant’s answered prayer.
I am
bone of your bone,
flesh of your flesh,
made up of your rib, Adam.
And once we meet,
like electrons, I will be bound to your nucleus,
completely indivisible
We even speak the same math:
1 + 1 + 1 = 3,
which really equals 1 if you add Him.
We were all created in His image,
but you have the ability to reflect, project & even detect
the Son.
If I were to explain what you look like,
you would have to look like a star–
a sun of the Son.
I would gain energy simply from the light that you shine on me.
I would need you in order to complete my photosynthesis.
I await your revelation, but once again from the genesis,
I will wait for you.
And I will know you
because when you speak,
I will be reminded of Solomon’s wisdom,
your ability to lead will remind me of Moses,
your faith will remind me of Abraham,
your confidence in God’s Word will remind me of Daniel,
your inspiration will remind me of Paul,
your heart for God will remind me of David,
your attention to detail will remind me of Noah,
your integrity will remind me of Joseph,
and your ability to abandon your own will, will remind me of the disciples,
but your ability to love selflessly & unconditionally will remind me of Christ.
But I won’t need to identify you by any special Matthews
or any special marks,
’cause His Word will be tatted all over your heart.
And you will know me,
and you will find me,
the boldness of Esther
meets the warm closeness of Ruth,
where the hospitality of Lydia
is aligned with the submission of Mary,
which is engulfed in the tears of a praying Hanna.
I will be the one,
drenched in Proverbs 31,
waiting for you.
But to my Father,
my Father who has known me before I was birthed into this earth,
only if You should see fit.
I desire Your will above mine.
So even if you call me to a life of singleness,
my heart is content with You–the One who was sent.
You are the greatest love story ever told,
the greatest love ever known.
You are forever my judge & I’m forever Your witness,
and I pray that I’m always found on a mission about my Father’s business.
I will always be Yours,
and I will always wait for You, Lord.
More than the watchmen wait for the morning,
more than the watchmen wait for the morning,
I will wait.


One of my favorite verses.

I have a hope. A hope as strong as an anchor. A hope that is my rigid point of support. A hope that makes me feel secure and stable. A hope that does not slip or breakdown. Christ in me, the hope of glory!
