Free fall.

It is a Friday night and I’m sipping on hot Milo, listening to Colbie Cailat’s songs. Thinking if its a mistake for letting my guard down when I’m with you.

See I look for you in the morning,

’cause thats when my minds always goes,

And I can’t wait to get to the evening,

’cause thats when I want you the most.

Greater is He that is in me.

I was just kneeling before the Lord in my quiet time, surrendering everything that is before me. And He then whispered Ephesians 3:20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

In the midst of the hurricane that has hit me during my preparations for the finals, its so amazing that I can suddenly feel this peace that transcends all understanding.

I thank the Lord for brothers and sisters in Christ that are always ever so encouraging.

Even when I feel all over the place, helpless in this, His word says I am able to rise above the storm.

I know I can do this. I may not be able, but He that is in me is able. I am not called to be weak and defeated but to be more than a conqueror.

Colossians 1:17
He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 
Oh Lord, I just want to run into Your arms. Know that this is all for You.

So I climbed a mountain and built an altar.

Lord Jesus,

Thank you for being faithful towards me throughout my Second Year of law school. It now comes down to these few crucial weeks of preparation for my finals.

God, You know I don’t have much to offer but only a heart that wants to please You. I rid thoughts of everything that is of myself. I will do my very very best. To glorify Your name.

How much effort I put in is within my control, and I will give my best as an act of worship unto You. The outcome is not within my control and I surrender that to You.

I only pray You will be delighted with all that I have to offer. I will arm myself with knowledge and prayers. And I pray You go before me as I enter into the exam periods in May.

My heart’s desire ultimately, is to build an altar for You. Every steep climb, every step of the way.

Allow me to just dwell on who You are.

This Easter, let us remember.

The true meaning of love.

Let me share with you something a friend shared with me. I hope it will be encouraging for you as it was for me:

The Lord showed me a new meaning to John 13 tonight.

Jesus knew that Judas, an enemy-to-be, would betray him in a very short while, yet He washed his feet too. He offered His love and gift of salvation till the very end until to the point of no-return, yet Judas did not accept this chance and did not repent. He had probably sealed his fate in his mind already.

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient towards you (everyone), not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)

Then in v12-16, He commanded us to follow His example of washing one another’s feet too. Metaphorically, we are called to love and serve one another. In v17, He basically said ‘Do it’. Love not with words, but in truth and in action.

In other words, the Lord commanded us to love one another, INCLUDING OUR ENEMIES. Jesus washed everyone’s stinking, smelly feet, including his betrayer-to-be’s. Would we ‘wash the feet’ of those who aggravate us to our wits’ end ? Wow. Nobody can confidently say yes to that, because there’s always someone that irritate/hurt us.

And yet in this passage of Scriptures, Jesus paved the way and led by example. He showed us that not only is it possible, but that we’re commanded to do so ! Only with His love pouring out into our hearts, will we be able to let it flow to others too. With our own strength, no way can we love like He did. But with Him in us, the impossible becomes possible. The unlovable becomes lovable. The unforgivable becomes forgivable. The enemy becomes a precious soul (of whom the Lord wants to save too)

I just wanna dwell on who You are.

Here before Your alter
I am letting go of all I’ve held
Of every motive, every burden
Everything that’s of myself

And I just wanna wait on You, my God
I just wanna dwell on who You are

Beautiful, beautiful
Oh, I am lost for more to say
Beautiful, beautiful
Oh Lord You’re beautiful to me

Here in Your presence
I am not afraid of brokenness
To wash Your feet with humble tears
I would be poured out till nothing’s left

And I just wanna wait on You, my God
I just wanna dwell on who You are

Beautiful, beautiful
Oh, I am lost for more to say
Beautiful, beautiful
Oh Lord You’re beautiful to me

Beautiful
You’re beautiful, oh You’re beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful

Holy, holy, holy You are, You are
Holy, holy, holy You are, You are
Holy, holy, holy You are, You are
Holy, holy, holy You are, You are

Beautiful, beautiful
Oh, I am lost for more to say
Beautiful, beautiful
Oh Lord You’re beautiful to me

You’re beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful

What my heart really wants to say.

Theme song for the upcoming exam period:

Jesus.. Lover of my soul,
All consuming fire is in Your gaze,
Jesus, I want You to know,
I will follow You all of my life,
There’s no one else in history is like You,
And history itself belongs to You,
Oh,Alpha and Omega, You have loved me,
And I will share eternity with You,

It’s all about You, Jesus,
And all is for You,
For Your glory and Your faith,
It’s not about me (oh no)
As in You should do things my way;
You alone are God and I surrender, ( You alone are God)
You alone are God and I surrender, (You alone, you alone)
You are alone are God and I surrender.. To Your will (only to You Lord)
(It’s all about You)

12 more days.

Till I sit for my finals for Year 2.

Everyone’s got high expectations of me.

So, I’ve got two options.

1) To feel pressured and stress myself out.

2) To feel too blessed to be stressed. Because people actually believe in me. Even when I doubt myself.

Yea I think I’ll go with option no. 2.

Too blessed

to be

stressed.
