You Are Beautiful

I miss doing videos. Surely I would love to do these kinds if I had pursued videography. Here’s Michael Ketterer’s You’re Beautiful.

 

Must say I had forgotten yesterday. Friday it is!

After Cebu

Came right on time for Monday work today. I feel so tired that I wanted to take a leave to regain strength but I am left without credits as I have consumed all the VLs this year. Hihih. Glad work’s not that harsh today. I’ll be posting pictures from YAM 6th aniv in Cebu today. Thanking God for the chance of working for His ministry.

I Can’t Get Over You

Those words are usually said to someone who broke your heart. In the midst of trying to move on, in pain and heartache, I am… seemed lost now. (Wahaha!) Now how about saying those to the One who mends hearts? This is something!

New Release Thursday featuring Anthem Lights’ worship song ‘I Can’t Get Over You’.

Lyrics and video below:

I love the way You love like no other
It’s got nothing to do with anything that I do
Time and time again You forgive me
So this time I choose to stay here with You

Hold me
Pull me just a little bit closer
I don’t want to lose this moment
Your love has covered me
And now I can’t get over You
I can’t get over You
I can’t get over You
I just can’t get over You

Here in the arms of my Father
Only grace can be found
So I lay my fears down
Nothing is the same anymore
You’ve changed me from the inside out
Now my heart is beating and it’s singing won’t You…

Hold me
Pull me just a little bit closer
I don’t want to lose this moment
You’re love has covered me
And now I can’t get over You
I can’t get over You
I can’t get over You
I just can’t get over You

I can’t get over You

I can’t get over the way
Your love stays the same, oh Lord
I can’t get over the way
Your love stays the same, oh Lord

Even through the good and the bad times
You stay the same
So my song will remain
Lord…

Hold me
Pull me just a little bit closer
I don’t want to lose this moment
You’re love has covered me
And now I can’t get over You
I can’t get over You
I can’t get over You
I just can’t get over You

I can’t get over You
I can’t get over You
There’s nothing I can’t do
I just can’t get over You

I can’t get over You

Happiness

I know I was angry – but I realized that the more I think how unfair the situation is, the more I sink in to the thoughts of madness. And the more I wanted to be understood, the more I am lead to being misunderstood.

Today, I realized that I must be motivated forward, plan and think forward, and even if I must fail, I must fail forward – thus this should let me love forward without thinking of the past hurts. I was created as I am not because I should be dependent to other people. I am not a support. I am who I should become because of His will and plans for my life.

As the saying goes today, people are seeking happiness and fulfillment – if they are not in your way of happiness, that doesn’t mean you are lost.  Happiness should be grown under your feet and not on the way of others. Happiness is the art of creating your own joy. It comes from within and you can only share when you are capable of producing your own one.

Love is never self-seeking. We love not we wish to, but as we can. We don’t love to receive love but because we are created to love that should not ask in return. But we must also learn how to love ourselves first so we won’t lose tract of our real identity and happiness.

I must learn to let go of the things that won’t help me survive this life. If I can’t let go of the relationship, then I must change my attitude. If I can’t let go of the food I love to eat, I must learn how to burn them in digestion. Life is just a matter of perspective and motivation, and knowing God is the master that can control everything.

I must learn how to take things lightly so I don’t carry a burden of too much. I should learn how to cope up and be flexible to things so I won’t get hard times carrying grudges when things aren’t going my way.

Here’s what I really want in life. I wanted to have my own house and car. I want my family to be there – my mom cooking the food for us, my father taking care of the needs of the house, my brother and sisters and I watching a movie.

I want to have a computer shop business where I could manage my own time.

Then, I’d like to have a family of my own – a husband and kids to take care of their needs, to become their partners in their endeavors.

We’ll have enough money to take vacations domestic and abroad. We have blessings to share to others, we go to church every Sunday and have our own personal relationship with God.

So today I must learn the art of love that says in Corinthians. I must acquire knowledge, wisdom and understanding too so that I would become a better person when that time comes. I must learn how things come and go, how situations can vary and how I can adopt to changes.

I am not perfect, but because I have God in me, I can live a good life He has promised me.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord,

I know you renewed me. I am not the same person as I was before. I am not feeling the same feeling anymore, not acting the same acts as before, not controlling situations like I was doing before. You have changed me for the better, according to Your plan. Please help me remember Your grace that satisfies, that controls, that overwhelms,  that makes me forget myself and just focus on You.

Amen

Song for today: Will Reagan’s If I Give It All To You
Song’s just so fitting.

This is a call to all the dead and disappointed
The ones who feel like they are done
This is a word to all the ones who feel forgotten
But you are not
Oh you are not

We’re alive, alive, alive we’re singing
We’re alive, alive, alive and we’re shaken
We’re alive, alive, alive, alive in You

We are soaked in all the grace that we’ve been given
Unchained from all that we have done
Your mercy’s rising like the sun on the horizon
We’re coming home

We’re alive, alive, alive we’re singing
We’re alive, alive, alive and we’re shaken
We’re alive, alive, alive, alive in You

Another band to watch out for is The Fox & the Hounds. I have not found any bio for them yet as they are new but their cover of the song is really fantastic.

Music and Lyrics

I was in deep thinking of something when Josh White‘s worship song played from my playlist. And I got amazed at God. I began looking at Him and not on anything else, even my emotions.

One thing I learned from small talks I had with housemates is the difference of praise and worship… and the effectivity of vertical worship. There are songs that helps you go through emotional situations. Praise songs are those we sing because of what He’s done. Worship songs are those we sing because of who He is.

There are songs that helps you look more to Him than what you are feeling. The mood sets you into an ocean of the grace of God where you are just swallowed up and there’s just nothing we can do, but to get amazed. We are crucified in Him, and in time, we will be alive in Him. To feel nothing but His love that covers us. This is the hope of eternal life. – lyrics from You Amaze Me
We read to know we are not alone says C.S Lewis. We listen to songs to know we are not alone I say.

In a talk with an ate one time, she said I must not just get ok with God, I must get right with God. To aim to be righteous.
