A new day

Saturday, 29 March 2008 . 09:53

I know i'm a disney freak, but i find these cartoons so powerful! so i havent been too well the past 2 days, but today is a new day! :) i thank God for New Days.. i love them! its like being reborn! Its like seeing sunrise for the first time, smelling the morning breeze and the spring blossoms, waking up to birds chirping out in the garden!! God keeps giving us second chances, and each second chance is like waking up to a new day. Forgiveness is the same thing... its starting all afresh, turning a new page in a book! Let each day be a new day so that we may learn to live each day to its fullest, appreciating every second of it!

We all know the Mime of lifehouse on the song Everything, but how many of us know the lyrics to that song? They are truly amazing... and they reflect exactly the way I'm feeling right now.

I wonder how at times we just sit in God's presence... and its as if nothing happens. its just.. hekk. But I keep reminding myself and convincing myself that God IS everything. He is all i need. we just have to keep hanging on in there... no matter what!
A brand new start!

Sunday, 23 March 2008 . 08:57

For those of you who don't know, today is Easter Sunday, and Jesus is Alive!! As written in bettina's new song "dying you destroyed my death, rising you restored my life"!!

A challenge to all Christians... let's start everything afresh! let's have once again a new beginning guys! Our sin is what kept Jesus nailed to that cross, but His love for the sinner is what made Him rise again! So the least we can do is offer Him our all, our dreams, our hopes, our fears, our friendships, our relationships, our family, our future, our past, our habits, our talents... our life!

Mother's Passion

Saturday, 22 March 2008 . 14:32

for those of you who have watched the passion, each of us has those moments in the film where we close our eyes... and so I question myself, and I ask, if I was one of Jesus' disciples, would I love Him enough to remain by His side all through His passion? I've been thinking a lot about Mary... her, Mary Magdalene and John, are the ones who loved Him enough to bare the pain with Him. Not even on screen do I manage to watch all of His passion, let alone if i were physically there!!!

Often, when we're passing through tough times, we think about Jesus dying on the cross for us, and it gives us courage and confidence to get through... but sometimes its easier to compare our situations to more tangible people.. and the person who immediately comes to mind is Mary. She's the woman who suffered the most in the Bible... she always accepted God's Will in her life and she trusted Him without question... and I'm sure she had doubts and confusion in her heart when Jesus was hanging there on the cross! Its already bad enough seeing your own son beaten up and mocked, let alone killed for no reason at all! yet she hung on... and kept trusting God even during her darkest days...

See His Love...

Clips from the passion of the Christ followed by the most amazing song of all... See His Love... Have a look guys... and Believe!

a need to belong...

Wednesday, 19 March 2008 . 16:51

'Too many issues, too much to do,
Too much to deal with for me to pull through.
I’ve dug much deeper then before and it’s hurting so much more
Yet how much more can I take before I truly start to break?
The shivers, hurts, thoughts and pains I’ve felt in previous years
Are here, tormenting me once again, escaping in endless tears.
Her touch, her smile, her laugh, her voice; it’s all coming back to me,
Seems like everything was buried alive in the deepest depths of me.
I had made myself forget the things that were beyond my mind and soul,
And I became a busy bee to fill-in that big black hole.
I had a positive life, travelling far, moving on step by step…
But meanwhile very deep inside, unknown to me, I wept…
And today, this very morning, as my mind was blank and numb,
My heart got in touch with the feelings within, and I felt the need of a Mum.
I need a guide, a comforter, a friend, a haven of rest,
Someone to laugh and argue with, someone who knows the best,
Someone to put me back on track when she sees me going astray,
Someone who’s shoulder’s available at any time of the day.
Someone for whom I’d close my eyes and thank God for whenever I pray
Someone to care for, cuddle and love; someone to hug everyday.
Someone I can just be with, someone who knows me through,
Someone who knows my fears and strengths, someone I once knew…
I feel the need to belong, somewhere, someplace, somehow,
I’m having a deja’ vu… but I’m only feeling it now…'

the cross...

true feelings...

Saturday, 15 March 2008 . 15:25

From the deep i cry
I am needing change in my life
I have let the cold creep in and lock my ability to feel (deeply)
Just now a shaft of light shot through my soul
Opening up the windows and the doors
Reaching to the corners of my flaws
Showing my need

I'm running out of time to live
Running out of love to give
Running out of life within
God help me
God help me

I don't care who stares
Never want to be where i have been again
Grace has taken over and drawn me in and I am embracing it
'Cause now I see Your light drawing me close
Overwhelming love I don't deserve
But I'll take the hope You bring
You hold it out to me
without You
on the wrong road again...

Thursday, 13 March 2008 . 09:26

when our Christian life starts its all a high, everything going so well, feeling God so close, things seem easy, and the harder things are, the more challenged we feel. But then, somehow, there are times when we start losing touch, it all becomes a habit, a routine, we become immune, no feelings... and we feel like this...

so if you feel numb, confused, way on the wrong road again... make this song your prayer...

where are you?

Wednesday, 12 March 2008 . 08:14

This post is dedicated to a very good friend of mine... kuragg!!
the lyrics of this video are below..

"Never Alone"

I waited for you today / But you didn't show / No no no / I needed You today / So where did You go? / You told me to call / Said You'd be there / And though I haven't seen You / Are You still there? [Chorus:] I cried out with no reply / And I can't feel You by my side / So I'll hold tight to what I know / You're here and I"m never alone / And though I cannot see YouAnd I can't explain why / Such a deep, deep reassurance / You've placed in my life / We cannot separate / 'Cause You're part of me / And though You're invisible / I'll trust the unseen [Chorus] We cannot separate / You're part of me / And though You're invisible / I'll trust the unseen

Just imagine...

Hello everyone...

they've been 2 sleepless nights at Krissy's place, but man was it fun!
Lots and lots of celebration and noise all around the place... which got me thinking... (im not refering to any party in particular, its just a general observation).. think about the fossos and luxol... all those people there, cheering on, singing, believing in the leader there in front of them, all together as one to reach one goal together...

Can you imagine the same atmosphere... for God? It would be so so cool! Hekk... just wanted to share the thought with you...
Keep close to the one who loves you most
Believe it or not, another post...

Friday, 7 March 2008 . 18:57

I just saw this video on Ben's Blog and it really touched my heart (thanks so much Ben). So I thought I'd share it with all you people who don't know Ben...

Lyrics: From underneath the trees, we watch the sky / Confusing stars for satellites / I never dreamed that you'd be mine / But here we are, we're here tonight / Singing Amen, I'm alive - Singing Amen, I'm alive [chorus]If everyone cared and nobody cried / If everyone loved and nobody lied / If everyone shared and swallowed their pride / We'd see the day when nobody died / And I'm singing Amen I, I'm alive / Amen I, I'm alive / And in the air the fireflies / Our only light in paradise / We'll show the world they were wrong / And teach them all to sing along / Singing Amen I'm alive / Singing Amen I'm alive [chorus] And as we lie beneath the stars / We realize how small we are / If they could love like you and me / Imagine what the world could be / [chorus] We'd see the day, we'd see the day / When nobody died / We'd see the day, we'd see the day / When nobody died / We'd see the day when nobody died
finally posting...
hey all
I know i haven't been posting in quite a while. It's because I've been caught up a little in my own thoughts. So, well, for the time being i haven't got much to post, however I've got a video for all of you... here it is.

I promise I'll soon be alive and kicking again and posting daily...
Meanwhile... Keep close to the one who loves you most
