I try to catch my breath, it hasn’t happened yet.
I’m wide awake in the middle of the night scared to death.
So I pray, “God, would You make this stop?”
“Father, please hold on to me, You’re all I’ve got.”
Carry me, carry me, carry me now,
From my sinking sand to Your solid ground.
The only way I’m ever gonna make it out
Is if You carry me, carry me, carry me now.
God carry me, carry me, carry me now..
Jesus calm my heart,
Come near me please.
Lord don’t let these worries get the best of me.
Oh I believe, that You’re still here with me.
Cause You meant what You said when You said You’d never leave.
I’m at the end of myself
I know I’ve got nothing left.
Feels like I’m stuck in the valley of the shadow of death.
And I’ve been down here so long..
I just can’t find my way out.
Oh God I don’t stand a chance,
Unless You carry me now.
God carry me now.
Things are getting a bit complicated. I’m not sure but, for some time, things have been the same. Some might say there isn’t any visible “sign” of growth… A tangible sense of improvement, a “better” person, exactly. But it isn’t really about that, right?
“This is not about what you’ve done, but what’s been done for you.”
Sometimes we get so caught up on what we’re missing…what we don’t have… what we feel isn’t right, that we forget about the arms of love wrapping around us and holding us tight, keeping us together.
The arms of love.
The arms of Jesus Christ.
It’s been a year since I’ve wrote this short story called “The Cycle of Being Better” and since then it has still been the same. The weaknesses and the failures of man, cause us to think so low of them when despite of those failures and weaknesses that man is still loved. Still a treasure in the arms of Christ.
My Favorite Songs of 2012
Last 2011, I’ve made a list of my favorite songs of 2011. Songs that have made such an impact to my life. Again, this 2012, there were also songs that I can say were “powerful” to me during the year. So here they are. :)
1. Keep My Heart Alive – Sanctus Real
I’ve learned how to play the keyboard this year!! Yay! And this is one of the songs that I’ve loved to play, especially since it’s a very easy one and I love the message it has. Yeah, it’s very meaningful to me, indeed.
Love is a personal friend of mine
He’s misunderstood, but he doesn’t mind
He’s pushed to the side, but he’ll never let go
He’ll keep preaching ‘yes!’ in a world screaming ‘no!’
Love has a voice that all his friends know
He speaks of a truth that is set to explode
He speaks of a way no one expects
He speaks of a grace that removes all regrets
Love is a friend who’s always been there
He doesn’t run when the others get scared
He calls me a friend; all my secrets he knows
He stands up for me while the world throws its stones
