The God of Me - Tan, Izumi

Life's like a race track, just that it never stops.
I am the runner, i run the clock.
this track full of trials, filled with grief and sorrow
things remain unsure in the tomorrow
but I press on.

the storms the wind the rain that pour
the heat the scorch the burning sun
this tiresome road, a path of worry
some say that it's a worthless journey
but not me.

when the going gets tough, the tough gets going
with each step, I'm further looking
at the far end, what lies ahead
in front of me, not what's behind my head
coz that's worth nothing.

In a world where sins await me
a place where temptations lingering
I find that I am helpless and weak
I realise that I have to seek
God Almighty.

He's the God of the road, this journey of mine
The Lord of the rain, the storm and sunshine
He provides comfort, with purpose divine
With opened arms He brings me inside
Under His wings.

I felt like giving up, but I stopped there.
God gave me life, for me He did care.
He gave me His son, the begotten one
Who gave His life, the work that was done.
All for me.

I fell down, and now i stand up
To face the challenges, no fear in my heart
God's on my side, who can be against us
With strength renewed, I soar on eagle's wings,
Pressing on to the finishing line.

This week has taught me alot on how much I have to depend on God. Stress can be overcome not by psycological methods or a stress ball, but through our God. When I cant manage things, I know that He's there to guide me along. Always.

screw it inside out
upside down

i feel like giving up.

and at the end of this, i realise this was all without seeking God's help

Lord, please help me. From now, tonight, Jesus take my wheel

went for my first yp session of the year yest! :D

pathetic right. cos of all the homework and trainings and commitments. then yesterday i decided dont care must go.

anyway. bible study was great. with all the sec4s and matthew chia! haha. we're in some 10 course workshop regarding discipleship and i thought it was delicious. learnt about what discipleship really meant. taking up my cross, following Him and losing my life (not really literally).

Life's a journey of one thousand miles and it starts with a single step. But to complete the journey, we need to keep walking everyday.

times are short for me these few days and i really find myself dying spiritually. in the sense that i wasnt able to so-called be in the spirit on saturdays and sundays cos i havent been getting much spiritual food. guess i have to discipline myself to do my quiet time and yea, FINISH THE BIBLE!

haha then matthew chia talked about how a christian life should not be like growth spurt.
means grow like siao during youth camp and bible camp then later stay stagnant. And another challenge is to live a testimony. Kenneth Chua shared a real nice song (the mission) during singspiration with the chorus that has the line" Proclaim and live the Truth". Even as i proclaim the gospel, let me live the gospel.

There's a call going out
Across the land in every nation
A call to those who swear allegiance to the cross of Christ
A call to true humility, to live our live responsibly
To deepen our devotion to the cross at any price

Let us then be sober, moving only in the Spirit
As aliens and strangers in a hostile foreign land
The message we're proclaiming is repentance and forgiveness
The offer of salvation to a dying race of man

To love the Lord our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission
The spring from which our service overflows
Across the street
Or around the world
The mission's still the same
Proclaim and live the Truth
In Jesus' name

As a candle is consumed by the passion of the flame
Spilling light unsparingly throughout a darkened room
Let us burn to know Him deeper
Then our service flaming bright
Will radiate his passions
And blaze with holy light

i just realised.

how much more i have to grow

physically (not too much anymore)

mentally (to be more serious)

emotionally (to care for others)

spiritually (to read the bible and encourage others)

Council Investiture '08 theme song.

this song's kinda about me somehow haha.

For you I will - Teddy Geiger
Wandering the streets, in a world underneath it all
Nothing seems to be, nothing tastes as sweet
As what I can't have
Like you and the way that you're twisting your hair
round your finger
Tonight I'm not afraid to tell you
What I feel about you.

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
and cannon ball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will

Forgive me if I stutter
From all of the clutter in my head
Cuz I could fall asleep in those eyes
Like a water bed
Do I seem familiar, i've crossed you in hallways
a thousand times, no more camouflage
I want to be exposed, and not be afraid to fall.

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannon ball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will

You always want what you can't have
But I've got to try
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will
For you

If I could dim the lights in the mall
And create a mood I would
Shout out your name so it echos in every room
I would
That's what I'd do, That's what I'd do to get through to you

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannon ball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
You always want what you can't have
But I've got to try
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will

I will, for YOU

we're living in a sad world, with sad people, with sad lives, cos they go after sad stuffs.
man some people's priorities are just so darn wrong. horrible.

today din have training and so, for the first time i got home at 4!! :D it's the earliest so far since school started okay.. everyday it's either 6 or 7 plus or even 8. School is like, hectic. homework. council. softball.

yeah softball. now i go like 1 hour training everyday. and obviously i can't do anything about it cos i'm loaded with homework and responsibilities. and i know that nationals are coming up. and i know that 1 hour is not enough. but i'm trying yeah? i still come down and i hardly went overseas last holiday so ya, i'm not a slacker.

haha i'm so far behind in the pitching department. even my sec2 teammate know so many more pitching skills lorh. i feel so sad-ed.

dam busy lah.

i want to go YP on sat! D: missed the first two sessions of the year.. ack. can't say no time for God but the thing is, i've got to make time man. the only REAL time i have contact with Him is on Sunday and that is so pathetic.

this year cannot play already. (my resolution) in school, be a mugger. study hard, mug hard, do well. hand in all my homework. what's more, there's responsiblities. Chairmanship isn't a small thing. i mean that it's quite a heavy responsibility. Can't be the play-play type already and must be serious but hahaha it's hard. still have to get used to used authority appropriately. softball vice capt, well honestly i think i'm not doing enough man. but i guess i shall encourage everybody in the team! :D

2 weeks passed and 3rd week going. ya i'm surviving but how long more?

when the holidays come, it's partaye!!!

yeah when the holidays come lah.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding."
Proverbs 3:5

I found an answer to all the sianness and weariness. I guess for the past one week of school I haven't been doing my quiet time in the morning and looking to God in all faithfulness and truthfulness.

Resolutions have been made on how I will be able to start on the right note. yeah academically yes but spiritually no. I'll make it clear. I'll make this right.

Week 2 tiresome.

let's hope week 3 will be fruitful.
