You satisfy my soul.

You satisfy my soul

You satisfy my soul 

You satisfy my soul

With Your love

You make my heart sing

You lift me on eagle wings

Just when I thought my heart, it would faint

You take the darkest night

And You turn it to shining light

Just when I thought the night had won

Hallelujah, You make all things beautiful

Hallelujah, trials and testing prove there’s gold

Hallelujah, You turn mourning into joy

Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

As I wait upon You

As I trust Your hand even when I do not know what is ahead

As I learn to obey Your command

As I be still and know that You are God

May my will be Your will

May my heart’s desires become Your heart’s desire.

My delight is in You
On Your word I set my heart
You are peace, You are calm for my restless soul
You light my way through the dark

I want to know You even more
Holiness is my desire
Purify, burning me, come and make me clean
You refine me in Your fire

Here I am, open arms
Draw me close Your heart
You’re my life, You’re my refuge
My delight, my delight is in You
My delight is in You

My delight is in You, Lord
You’re the treasure I have found
You’re the rock where I stand
I will be moved 
All my life is in Your hands

Here I am, open arms
Draw me close Your heart
You’re my life, You’re my refuge
My delight, my delight is in You
My delight is in You

My delight is in You
My delight is in You
My delight is in You

What I found is a new love
All about showing you Jesus
Oh I found You, spring up from who you are love
All our days left, all our days left, Lord

Find us far
My heart toward desire
Is to be holy
Set apart for You
I choose to be holy
Set apart for You my master
Ready to do for You

Here I am, open arms
Draw me close Your heart
You’re my life, You’re my refuge
My delight, my delight is in You

Here I am, open arms
Draw me close Your heart
You’re my life, You’re my refuge
My delight, my delight is in You
My delight is in You
My delight is in You

Have my heart. Have it all.

Humble King 
Holy One 
Friend of sinners 
God’s own Son 
God in flesh 
Among men 
You walked my road 
You understand 

Servant King 
Friend to me 
You saved my soul 
Washed my feet 
Here I’ll bow 
Give all to You 
Lord I want 
To be like You 

All I want 
All I need 
More of You 
Less of me 
Take this life 
Lord it’s Yours 
Have my heart 
Have it all 

I will walk 
In Your ways 
Love Your word 
Seek Your face 
My reward 
My sole pursuit 
To know You more 
To be like You 

Jesus Jesus 
All I want is to be like You

Already All I Need.

Asking where You are, Lord,

wondering where you’ve been

is like standing in a hurricane,

trying to find the wind

and hoping for Your mercy

to meet me where I am

is forgetting that Your thoughts for me

outnumber the sand

You filled the sun with morning light

You bid the moon to lead the night

You clothe the lilies bright and beautiful

You’re already all I need

already everything

that I could hope for

You’re already all I need

You’ve already set me free

already making me more like You

You’re already I need

Jesus, You’re already all I need

walking through this life

without Your freedom in my heart

is like holding on to shackles

that You have torn apart

so remind me of Your promises

and all that You have done

in this world I will have trouble

but you have overcome

and every gift that I receive

You determine just for me

but nothing I desire compares to You

in your fullness

You’re my all in all

and in Your healing

I’m forever made whole

and in Your freedom

Your love overflows

and carries me

You carry me

yes You carry me

you carry me

The Mission.

The following are excerpts from John Piper’s Desiring God, Meditations of a Christian Hedonist:

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot loose.” – Elizabeth Elliot, Shadow of the Almighty; The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot.

“Most men are not satisfied with the permanent output of their lives. Nothing can wholly satisfy the life of Christ within his followers except the adoption of Christ’s purpose toward the world he came to redeem. Fame, pleasure and riches are but husks and ashes in contrast with the boundless and abiding joy of working with God for the fulfillment of his eternal plans. The men who are putting everything into Christ’s undertaking are getting out of life its sweetest and most priceless rewards.” – J. Campbell White, Secretary of the Laymen’s Missionary Movement.

On December 4, 1857, David Livingstone, the great pioneer missionary to Africa, made a stirring appeal to the students of Cambridge University, showing that he had learned through experience what Jesus tried to teach Peter:

“For my own part, I have never ceased to rejoice that God has appointed me to such an office. People talk of the sacrifice I have made spending so much of my life in Africa. Can that be called a sacrifice which is simply paid back as a small part of a great debt owing to our God, which we can never repay? Is that sacrifice which brings its own blest reward in healthful activity, the consciousness of doing good, peace of mind, and a bright hope of a glorious destiny hereafter? Away with the word in such  view, and with such a thought! It is emphatically no sacrifice. Say rather it is a privilege. Anxiety, sickness, suffering or danger, now and then, with a foregoing of the common conveniences and charities of this life, may make us pause, and cause the spirit to waver, and the soul to sink; but let this only be for a moment. All these are nothing when compared with the glory which shall be revealed in and for us. I have never made a sacrifice.” – cited in Samuel Zwemer, The Glory of the Impossible; Perspectives on the World Christian Movement.

I randomly popped my earphones into my ears this evening and this was one of the songs I decided to listen to. Strangely, I felt this small voice speaking to my heart.

If you’ve been following my posts on this blog, you’d know I am only honest in my writings because I believe that in every imperfection discovered, coupled with the desire to be more like Jesus, there is beauty that has the potential to inspire. So, here goes:

You see, I am a person that is committed to what I aim to achieve in life. Often, it has always been the ‘tunnel vision’ approach for me – that mentality where nothing stops me if I aim to pursue a certain goal. Sure, it gets me somewhere in respect to my achievements.

But as a result, I have begun to realize I have become a little more selfish in life. Let me explain.

Rushing to class, I tend to walk past the needy without a second thought. Without even remembering I am to be a salt and light unto these people. The Bible says in Luke 11:33 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.”

I often proclaim I am living for God – and mean it of course. Sing worship songs that exclaim about His love upon my life and pray for Him to use me where I am placed. I go to church and show that I love the Lord, but all within my comfort zone, underneath a bowl. I talk about my spirituality only to Christian friends for fear that those who do not believe will be put off. But what good is it when it is all comfortable, but I am not truly a living testimony, demonstrating His great love for me to those who actually need it most?

I remember walking past the blind and poor, the laborers, hawkers, prostitutes. All in the name of getting to class on time. You see, my college is situated in the heart of the city where there are people who, without a doubt, need the Lord.

How blind and insensitive I have become towards the needs of people around me, those closest to God’s aching heart. So caught up in doing well in school and make it as a lawyer. We often focus on agendas of our own, which in turn blocks out the agenda of the Highest One, subtly disallowing Him to live through you and me.

If you know my story, you’d know I wrestled with God when He told me to come back to Malaysia to enroll for the Certificate of Legal Practice. I wanted to stay in England to pursue the UK Bar Professional Training Course. I was upset and I didn’t understand why God would discount me of that dream I always had. Now I can see His purpose slowly unfolding, revealing to me why. I am placed here for a reason. And one of the reasons is to shed the scales on my eyes and see the world through His eyes.

Psalms 139:23-24 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

I was really challenged after watching this video. I pray it will do the same for you:

If Jesus fully emptied himself for you, what’s keeping you from emptying yourself for others? – Jefferson Bethke
