Forever ( Hillsongs )

I'll Worship at Your Throne
Whisper my own love song
With all my heart I'll sing
For You my Dad and King
I'll live for all my days
To put a smile on Your face
And when we finally meet
It'll be for eternity

And Oh how wide You open up Your arms
When I need Your love
And how far You would come
If ever I was lost
And You said that all You feel for me
Is undying love
That You showed me through the cross

I'll worship You my God
I'll worship You my God
I love You
I love You
Forever I will sing
Forever I will be with You
Be with You

the universe, me & You.

The sunlight danced as I woke…
A little tango outside my window
The leaves were all excited,
Among the flowers there was a whisper…

The clouds all gathered together
Shouting from high their big hello
The birds all rushed to shelter
But not before their chorus sang

From the little pebbles
To the mighty mountains
From the tame river
To the rowdy seas….

The little ant rushes tell
The grand blue whale whispers ocean loud
The royal lion powders his nose
While the domestic cats purr in admiration

But I my Lord,
I came to you, as I am
With my many imperfections and faults
Before You I stand

I heart races with excitement
My soul knows no joy other joy
My Lord, make me worthy
Make me worthy of Your love

So as the moon is a reflection of the sun
May I be a reflection of You, and You alone.

A delightful dinner

Came across something whilst reading during dinner last night. It's engraved itself so deep into me that I simply had to share.

The writer ( Stormie Omaritan once again ) was relating a particularly difficult period of her life. During this period, instead of clinging onto God, she began to believe that God was not there for her. She sought out the old familiar comforts of ungodly relationships and alcohol. She became sidetracked and wasted much precious time.

But none of that would have happened if a strong effort to walk in the light (of God) was made everyday – no matter what was going on.

Here’s the excerpt that moved me the most:

“I have electricity in my home, but if I don’t plug into it, I don’t see the light. I have Jesus in my heart, but if I don’t plug into Him daily, I won’t be able to see His light either, even though it is there. I have to connect to Him. Talk to Him. Worship Him. Spend time with Him. Bask in His radiance like bathing in the sun. Become so familiar with His illumination of my soul that I immediately recognize any counterfeit”

3 Years !

It has officially been 3 years. 3 whole, complete, years since the first time I started officially working. Of course there were all sorts of other odds things that I did before that I actually called work. This ranged from getting paid to do chores, to giving literature tuitions to even handing out flyers! Yes I had some ‘broke’ moments.

Starting off, a dewy eyed teenager, completely oblivious to everything - to the me I am now. I recall how afraid I was, this day 3 years ago. All the uncertainties put together, was more often too much to handle.

But after 2 years of being with the organization, I began to grow a little too content – the unhealthy sort of content. So much to the extent that I accepted the fact that I was too numerically young to progress. I knew it was time to move on but I lacked very vital then. Faith in God.

But our Heavenly Father being the perfect Father that he is blessed me by allowing someone very special back into my life just about then. This person not only lit this fire of passion that I today have for God , but somehow helped regain my confidence , ambition but most of all helped me believe once again that I too can dream , and my dreams can come true.  I have not stopped dreaming since!

Our Heavenly Father being the perfect father that he is not going to let anything go to waste. All the exposure I gained in that organization not only made my CV look good, it built my character. Isn’t it amazing how God can take the worst situation imaginable and turn it around into something so amazing that its mind blowing!

Thus began a new journey, this time one chosen specifically for me by my Heavenly Father. The last 9 months (oh, how time flies!) have been amazing, new faces, new experiences – I can’t believe how blessed life can truly be ! I have given Him so little compared to how abundantly he has blessed me.

Have circumstances been different; would my choices have been different?


What’s for sure, I would not have the most precious group of friends ( all equally, if not more in love with God ) that I do today, I would barely be able to enjoy the sense of peace I today do – but above all that , I would not be in love with God the way I am.

Our Heavenly Father is ever waiting to welcome us home into His kingdom; it is truly whether or not we want to be home. Oh, how I wish I had decided to go go home to Him, 3 years ago.

Wind beneath my wings..

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.

Psalm 23

Its 03:40am and my day is barely over. I’m missing Him. Everything else seems so urgent these days that spending time with my dear Saviour keeps being pushed aside. Amidst of all the hassle, something touched my busy and ruffled heart - Psalm 23 by Don Moen. A truly anointed singer he is – so beautifully the Psalm is sung accompanied only by a piano & violin.

Isnt it amazing how God chooses to speak to us, amidst all the noise, providing us with exactly the sort of assurance that we need. Our perfect Father indeed. :)

Psalm 23
Jesus, my shepherd and only provider
He makes me lie down in green pastures
He leads me beside the still water
He restores my soul

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
All the days of my life
And will dwell in house forever
Until the end of time

Jesus, my shepherd and only provider
You make me lie down in green pastures
You lead me beside the still water
You restore my soul

Though I walk through the valley of shadows
I will not be afraid
Your rod and staff are my only comfort
And You'll be with me always

You prepared a table before me
In the presences of my enemies
And you anoint my head with oil
And my cup overflows
My cup overflows with your love
With your love

Jesus, my shepherd and only provider
You make me lie down in green pastures
You lead me beside the still water
You restore my soul
