Farewell

Never in my life
Had I thought it was this hard,
But it is!

    I know it it’s not forever,
    But that doesn’t make it lighter
    It has been wonderful working with you
    And I treasure every bit of it dearly

You received me,
Supported me,
Encouraged me,
And lifted my spirit whenever it slipped low

    In you I met a great leader
    A great team,
    And above all, a wonderful friend

We may say farewell today,
But I hope and pray
We keep in touch!

I wonder

Your words stir up my heart,
With a longing to hear more and more of you
Now that I’m hooked
I wonder,
Will something greater come out of this?
Will something more grow out of this?
Or my heart will hang on this loose thread?

It cuts into two
I should hold on a little longer?
Should I let go?
Could it be too soon?
Could I be holding onto a shadow?

I remember your word,
Filled with promise and hope
Yet waiting is so hard,
And everything else seems to be on a rush
What should I do?
I wonder

I want it all

“Stop putting limits,
Not on what we can achieve,
Or on what we deserve,
And never on what God can do for us!”
She said.

This year I want it all,
Not part of,
Not some of it,
All the best I can have, I want it all.

I want to be closer to God,
So that I can hear him more,
Serve him as my master,
Count on him when things go tough,
And celebrate with him when all is well.
I would like that.

I want to have fun, enjoy my life more,
Laugh more without fear on how loud I am…
I want to be closer to my family,
Share with them as much as I can,
And end the story of ‘I will … bla bla… next time’.

I also want to learn new things,
Save more,
Invest more,
Travel more,
… So I may spend more!
But still, I want it all!

His promise

I wish I was the one you call
When you are feeling week,
I would give you strength

I wish I was the one you call
When you are weary and burdened,
I would give you rest

I wish I was the one you call
When your heart is troubled
I would give you peace

I wish I was the one you call
When you are exited and filled with joy,
I would rejoice with you

I wish I was the one you call
When all your hope is gone,
I would comfort you

This is not just a wish, but a promise
If you call on my name I will be there for you.
Regardless of what you are going through,
Regardless of what you have done,
I love you so much to give up on you.

I will be there for you
And that is my promise.
Just call on the name of Jesus,
He will be there for you regardless
That is his promise to us.

So HE Loved

Before time, he sang of his love for me.
He told me, he knows the hairs on my head,
And my name is tattooed on his hands!
Wow, I said to myself, this must be some great love….
Love, it got me thinking, and I wondered …
This could be any different?

    I have heard that before,
    I believe, you have too
    I love you, but don’t fat,
    I love you, provided you don’t run broke,
    I love you, and a car will be a great gift.
    So how is HIS love any different …?

Day after day he worked on bring me close to him,
To be acknowledged, adored, and for me to lean on him!
You know the kind of friend that wants to give, more than receive!
But still my heart was hardened,
As though, that was not enough,
I was busy to notice, his greatness,
Or how much we could achieve together
I have sooooo much to do
This and that is not done …
I lamented over and over again!

    Can you believe, I crossed the sea on foot?
    Yet worriers died in the sea waters,
    With their horses stuck in mad?
    Who am I to be that great?
    Who am I to be I more than worriers?
    No! No! No!
    It wasn’t me, well, not on my own making
    But of the one that loved me.
    So much He loved me to save my life!

Did I notice his greatness then?
Did I lean on him then…?
No, I was still trying to get things done,
Searching for a greater yearning…
May be in wrong places,
But I was busy.

    He took another shot at me,
    May be at US; you and me
    With a baby-like innocent smile
    He cried; I love you!
    But did we acknowledge him?
    Did we adore him?
    Did we learn to lean on him?
    No, we were filled with a bigger mirage of what we wanted to see!

We lived with a king, but we knew him not,
So much He loved us, but so little did we know,
And now, all I can say is….
Merry Christmas
Just as a reminder,
That the king is here with us,
Lets us acknowledge him
Adore him, and learn to lean on him all the days of our life
For that is how much He loves us!

I surrender

All that I am,

I place in your hands,

All that I long to be,

I trust you

All that I cherish,

Is in you

All that worries me,

I give to you

All I need,

I ask of you

Just as I am

I surrender.

 

I place myself

At your feet,

There I find comfort,

And guidance

 

By myself I‘m nothing,

But with you,

I overcome

Alone, am tired and worn out,

With you I’m refreshed and hopeful.

 

I surrender to you

Oh God,

Be my guide,

And my comforter,

The Lord is with me

(Net picture).

The Lord is with me

The Lord is with me
I will never leave you
Nor forsake you
So he said to me.

Trouble will come your way
But don’t worry
For I will rise you to victory
I promised.

“What if no trouble comes my way?”
I asked.
“Then you would not grow in love with me!”
He said calmly.

Yes, trouble has come,
Much more than I ever imagined
I have been wounded,
Cried and felt weak.

Yet I have also been healed,
My strength has been restored over and above
And am so immersed in His love

The lord is with me,
Right here,
Closer to my heart
He lives in me!

You make me

Beneth

Happy Moments, You made me!

 

You make me

You make me sigh,

You make me smile,

You make me laugh.

 

You make me dance,

A dance that I have never done before,

You make my heart over flow with joy.

 

You make each moment shorter,

You make each memory last forever,

You make me speechless.

 

You make me believe in life again,

Enjoy life like never before,

You make me hopeful for each day and tomorrow.

 

You make me,

The most beautify me

I feel myself more than ever,

You make me, love me.
