By Your Side - Tenth Avenue North
Why are you striving these days?
Why are you trying to earn grace?
Why are you crying?
Let me lift up your face, just don't turn away.
A good reason to be a better version of myself, this 2010.
I know I haven't blogged for ages, but yeah. Bev introduced this song to me some time back, but I only had the time to really listen to the lyrics today. The images, the stories, the emotions, they touched me so deeply. Just started to realise that there're so many reasons for me to live out of the context of myself. There's just no logical reason for me to cry out in despair, for they are all tears shed in vain. I'm certain I'm held in completely safe hands, and I'm not going to try to fight them off. :)
Just came back from Israel. I can't really describe how special and precious it was. It just really, made everything so tangible. Such a dated work at Calvary felt like it's 'right here right now'. I'd definitely be back, probably next year. Those 10 days really made me love the land so much, and opened up my eyes to see the multitude of people that needs to be loved, by people like me who have the capacity to reach out give a part of my heart to them. It allowed me to see how significant I was in God's eyes, for me to be handpicked by Him for His purposes.
Flying off to Kuching next monday already. Gosh, have been flying non stop, fourth time I'm packing my luggage this holiday. Pretty excited for many reasons. Firstly, I'm going back this time by myself, with Dione! :) Darn sure we're going to have alot of fun. Secondly, I miss my cousins and family there. I really really do. Miss that fuzzy wuzzy feeling! And lastly, it's been a long time since I've last caught up with a friend of mine there. Guess we're living very different lives now, but I still do miss the friendship. It very much sucks when you have somebody you enjoy so much talking and spending time with taken away from you. I'm not afraid of disappointments, but yeah, just hoping something will turn out right.
ARROW service tmr! Can't wait to see all the people I love with all my heart and soul! Gonna go back to uploading my Israel pics on FB. Blessed night darlings! ;)
