Wait and See



I was born in Tennessee, late July humidity,

Doctors said I was lucky to be alive
I’ve been troubled since the day that I got here,
Troubled to the day I disappear
That’ll be the day that I finally get it right

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won’t forget,
All the plans HE’s made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet

I never really was that good in school;
Talked too much, broke the rules
My teachers thought I was a hopeless fool, all right.
I don’t know how but I made it through,
It’s one of those things you gotta do
I always had a knack for telling the truth.

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won’t forget,
All the plans HE’s made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet

Still wonderin’ why I’m here.
Still wrestling with my fear
But oh… HE’s up to something,
And the farther out I go,
I’ve seen enough to know
That I’m not here for nothin’…
He’s up to somethin’.

So now’s my time to be a man,
Follow my heart as far as I can
No tellin’ where I’m ending up tonight
I never slow down (or so it seems),
But singing my heart is one of my dreams
All I gotta do is hold on tight.

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won’t forget,
All the plans HE’s made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet
HE’s not finished with me yet,
HE’s not finished with me yet

GOD, teach me to trust You
Teach me to follow You
Teach me about You
GOD, bless us
GOD, lead us

Lord of Lords


Beholding your beauty is all I long for
To worship You Jesus is my soul’s desire
For this very heart you have shaped for your pleasure
purposed to lift your name high

Hear and surrender in pure adoration
I enter your courts with an offering of praise
I am Your servant come to bring you glory
As is fit for the work of your hands

Chorus:
Now unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
All of creation resounds with the song
Worship and praise him the Lord of Lords

Verse 2:
The spirit now living and dwelling within me
Keep my eyes fixed ever upon Jesus’ face
Let not the things of this world ever sway me
I’ll run ’till I finish the race

Chorus 2:
Singing unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
All of creation resounds with the song
Worship and praise the Lord
Now unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
All of eternity echoes the song
Worship and praise him the Lord of Lords

Bridge:
Holy Lord
You are Holy
Jesus Christ is the Lord

Chorus 3:
Now unto the lamb who sits on the throne
Be glory and honor and praise
Call all the saints to join in the song
Worship and praise him the Lord of Lords

Ending:
Lord of Lords
Lord of Lords
Lord of Lords

Through It All…


You are forever in my life
You see me through the seasons
Cover me with Your hand
And lead me in Your righteousness

And I look to You
And I wait on You

I’ll sing to You, Lord
A hymn of love
For Your faithfulness to me
I’m carried in everlasting arms
You’ll never let me go
Through it all

Rooted and Established in Love


“so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” – Eph. 3: 17-19

To be able to live a christian life, we have to be rooted and be established in love. That’s very promising. However, we have to understand that for us to be rooted, we have to be UPROOTED first from the ways of the world. We can’t enjoy God’s promises while we are living in the cursed ground.

Uprooting is hurtful. We are living our own life for so long that giving it up is not so easy. It takes God to deal with us. Let’s just be open-minded. Let’s allow God to work in our hearts, in the very depths of our being.

It’s never an easy task, but if it takes God to work in your life, surely, EVERY fruit is worth of your sacrifice.

God bless..

OH! Lost? Not again!!


Have you been in a situation wherein you just forgot your password in one or more of your accounts (e-mail, debit cards, office log-in accounts) and you have to search your entire drafts – stick notes, journals, phone notes, or computer files, in a desperate attempt to retrieve it? I’d been  there over and over again. Yet, i’d never learned my lesson well.

Sometimes, the consequence of losing important credentials like that is an effort to request for new PIN (personal identification number) or password thru the internet. However, in my case, i have my debit card ‘eaten’ by a ruthless ATM because i’d punched incorrect PIN three times. So i have to call the bank to request for new debit card. I have o take my salary thru our accounts department and wait for two weeks for my new card to arrive. That’s because i am not organized and for my paranoia that my password will be compromised.

I am a bit wise now. I have my masterlist. 🙂

Come to the River of Life


Our God is an awesome God. Everyday i wake up as i kneel down, His marvelous presence left me in awe. Truly, it’s not of what we are doing that enable us  to approach the Throne. We c an face Him because He desires covenant with us. It’s our sins that nailed Him there, but it’s His life that drawn us near to Him. Let’s not be guilty of all our sins he repaid more two thousand years ago. There He is on the Throne. Seek Him, feel His marvelous presence, be immersed with His encounter. Surely, your life will never be the same again.

Slow Fade – Casting Crowns


Be careful little eyes what you see
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you’re thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
