My Creed

I was asked to write a creed for a homework assignment for one of my counseling sessions.  My counselor suggested that I center it around the following verses:

  • 2 Corinthians 1:3-7
    • Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort.”
  • James 1: 2-5
    • Count it all joy, my brothers,when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
  • Romans 8:28
    • And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:18
    • give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Daishu’s Creed

Most of the times we look at life and see the best things that come
but when I looked I seen some, but then none
Life treated me like it treated everyone, foreign

no exceptions from heart aches and pain
no exceptions from horrific trauma
no exceptions from ugliness and misrepresentations

I often wonder
why did I think I was any different
who said I had a pass

God reminded me of my human state when he took my dad
i felt hopeless, I felt angry
i felt betrayed, I dealt with anxiety
i sucked up my tears and stuck out my chest which became uneasy and very frightening

I didn’t see hope, I only saw the night
with no stars to provide any light
there was no moon, there was no life
it was only me standing under a heavy street light

I thought no one cared, I thought no one knew
but when one star appeared, it reminded that Christ suffered too
then came two, then another

Beacons of hope, that God was showing me something
i wasn’t alone, My savior suffered
God is sovereign, ain’t that something
my father was his, and never mine

In that moment, I sorta understand for the first time
i still felt pain, I still felt rain
i still felt the loss of my dad, my human emotions didn’t change
i just remembered hope, God opened my eyes

He reminded me that he is here to catch every tear that I cry
although I suffer, it won’t be in vain
i can have hope for heaven, I can someday not experience pain
until my time, I will wait with thanks

Knowing that Gods love and protection on this Earth, will never change
i still feel suffering, I may lose my vision but thanks to the Son
i can never leave his mission

He can relate, he can sympathize
He can save, he can humanize
He’s the way, and he’s the reason why
Although my physical body endures pain, one day my pain will be paralyzed…
Forever.
