Because dark chocolate is bittersweet.

Posted in Chord progressions. with tags , , on June 29, 2011 by Vivian K

Some dislike dark chocolates because of its slight bitter taste. I for one love dark chocolate because I savor the authenticity of its taste. Chocolate so pure and rich. Bitter, yet sweet. I choose to focus on the richness of it, rather than the bitterness of its taste.

Likewise in life, I will choose to be thankful that my God saw me through.

I am secured in His love.

I will choose to focus on Him as I press on to run this race. My eyes are fixed on You.

I will keep moving forward.

But oh Lord, take this thorn away from my heart.

Take whatever little I have to offer for the glory of your Kingdom.

Stillness in the chaos.

I’m not sure if it’s normal for me to be feeling this calm on the eve of my result’s day. Perhaps the Lord is gracious and generous in His peace giving.

But really, I’ve learnt that there is really nothing to fear. Because it is all already in His hands. All of our stories are already written in His books. What can we do but surrender?

I choose to stop trying to be God, and choose to allow Him to take over.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.

And oh, let me tell you. The burden is so much lighter.

The word for me (from family and friends) throughout my exam period was Isaiah 40:30-31

30 Even youths grow tired and weary, 
   and young men stumble and fall; 
31 but those who hope in the LORD 
   will renew their strength. 
They will soar on wings like eagles; 
   they will run and not grow weary, 
   they will walk and not be faint.

And His word shall I only allow my thoughts to consume.

I was just leading a prayer with some church friends and a church leader at a Spiritual Parenting seminar.

Then the church leader told me she saw a vision. She saw this.

She told me what she thought it meant;

1. Alot of potential

2. I may look hard from the outside, but is in fact sweet in the inside.

Food Fruit for thought.

Realize.

“There’s never a moment that I don’t miss you when I’m not with you. I love you so much that it pains me, ‘cos I know how hard it is for you to love me – yet you choose to love me still. How can I not but love you?”

A text from T

I couldn’t have said it any better.

Miss independent
Miss self-sufficient
Miss keep your distance, mmmm

Miss unafraid
Miss out of my way
Miss don’t let a man interfere, no

Miss on her own
Miss almost grown
Miss never let a man help her off her throne

So, by keeping her heart protected
She’ll never, ever feel rejected
Little miss apprehensive
Said ooh, she fell in love

(Chorus)
What is this feeling taking over?
Thinking no one could open the door
Surprise, it’s time, to feel what’s real
What happened to miss independent’s no longer need to be defensive?
Goodbye, old you, when love, is true

Misguided heart
Miss play it smart
Miss if you wanna use that line, you better not start, no

But she miscalculated
She didn’t wanna end up jaded
And this miss decided not to miss out on true love

So, by changing a misconception
She went in a new direction
And found inside, she felt a connection
She fell in love

What is this feeling taking over?
Thinking no one could open the door
Surprise, it’s time, to feel what’s real
What happened to miss independent’s no longer need to be defensive?
Goodbye, old you, when love, is true (when love, is true)

When miss independent walked away
No time for love that came her way
She looked in the mirror and thought today
What happened to miss no longer afraid?
It took some time for her to see
How beautiful love could truly be
No more talk of why can’t that be me
I’m so glad I’ve finally seen

What is this feeling taking over?
Thinking no one could open the door
Surprise, it’s time, to feel what’s real
What happened to miss independent’s no longer need to be defensive?
Goodbye, old you, when love, is true (when love, is true)

Miss independent

There are three things we should teach our children.

Posted in In a major key. with tags , , on June 19, 2011 by Vivian K

1. There is only one God, and that is the Lord Almighty.

2. There is only one race. And that is the human race.

3. Never take the last bread from the table. Because someone hungry might come by and need it more than you do.

Whom shall I fear?

Posted in In a major key. with tags , , on June 17, 2011 by Vivian K

Because I know You live
I’ll put my faith in this
That You hear my call
Lord You hear me calling
Because I know You live
I’ll set my heart on this
You won’t let me fall
When all else is falling

When all You are is glorious Oh God
Victorious and strong
Whom shall I fear
When all You are is powerful and true
And good in all You do
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear

Because You’re on my side
I won’t believe the lie
That I’m all alone
I’m not all alone here
Because You live in me
My heart will still believe
That You came to save
And You’ll come to save me

I know You’re with me in the fire
You never leave me in the flame
I know Your thoughts are so much higher
And all Your ways are not my ways

You are for me
You came to save me
You will never let me go
In my heart I’ll always know
I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that that you will never forsake me in my weakness
I know that You have come now even if to write upon my heart
To remind me who You are.

Let God be God. Let Him fight the battles for you.

Be still in His love.
