I was Here [Je étais ici. Estaba aquí.]

IMG_4278.JPG
Good Day, Beautiful People!

Hope  this a good week for you and looking forward for the weekend adventure or relaxation. Just want to share this song that touches most people even if you are not a Beyoncé fan. It is all about every human purpose on earth.

While you listen to the song, hope it will lead you to ask yourself some profound and basic questions about your life.  It cannot be just about existence and taking up space. It does not matter if you choose to live your life carelessly or wasted before. You have a choice now to live it differently if you want to give it a go at life. Everyone of us has a different life journey to walk through. Is good to have a date with self. Find a quiet space like a nook, garden, park or beach ponder, get acquainted with self, seek God, explore your purpose.  Your Calling in life is awaiting for you to discover or you are already on the purpose journey, does not matter. The most important thing is to keep refining that purpose, keep walking towards the purpose even it seems difficult and cannot find a way.

Perhaps for some people, you have to start with asking about your real identity ( identity in your Creator, the GREAT I AM) . Once you established your foundation, it is easier to tackle or find your purpose and God’s destiny,

Get a journal to write down so you can remind self every now and then especially when you  hit a brick wall,  you are feeling overwhelm. Quitting seems an easier option. Don’t quit! Do another lap.  At the end of your life what do you want people to remember you by. What you want to be written on your tombstone?  What kind of epistle will you be expecting? What kind of legacy you want to leave for the next generation and generations to come?

“I Was Here”
I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time

Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets 
Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I want to say I lived each day, until I died
And know that I meant something in, somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone some happiness
Left this world a little better just because

I was here

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I wanna leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here
I lived (I lived), I loved
I was here
I did (I did), I’ve done
I was here
I lived (I lived), I loved (I loved)
I was here (oh)
I did, I’ve done

I was here

Think Pink for October [ Pensez rose pour Octobre, Piensa en rosa para Octubre]

IMG_4170.JPG
Good Day, Beautiful People!

IMG_4178.JPG
Today, I’m sharing something close to my heart. Is hard not to get involve in whatever way for this cause as I lost a few loved ones, friends and pastors through different cancers over the years. As believers, we can bring faith, hope, love, joy and practical help into every situation. “I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” -Edward Everett Hale. We can’t do everything but together we can all do something.

IMG_4171.JPG
It is not too late to get involved, attend or host a McGrath Foundation or cancer council pink ribbon day fundraiser, a morning tea, a girls’ night in or an event to create breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers awareness. Fundraising to bring medical research, contributing vital support and prevention programmes. You can do it small or big, at your own home, your workplace, school, church and local community event. Everyday, 50 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers in Australia. Pretty sure is not a small number around the globe. I dare says, we all know someone in our circle (self, family, friends, neighbours, school moms or colleagues) who are diagnosed.

Spread love and kindness in your circle or even outside your circle, pray for the sick and family, visit the sick, make a meal, send flowers, a card of encouragement, call or message them to show you care. For those who follow earlier and remember one of my beautiful and brave friend, Nezz, is an overcomer. She is in remission and currently pregnant! Praise God!

Wired Worship, Unwired Whinging

IMG_4041.JPG
Good Day, Beautiful People! [Bonne journée Beau! Buen día Bella!]

IMG_4046.JPG
Everyone worship something…
Self, Someone, Money, Idols, Earth, Animals, Celebrities, Sport, Food, Things, Substance, Devil, Satan, Jesus and God.
Worship is important in every believer daily life. Sing if there is barrenness in any area of your life; physical, psychological, relational or financial.

IMG_4047.JPG
Sing like Isaiah 54.
God Brings His People Home
“Woman, be happy!
You have not had any children,
but you should be very happy.
“Yes, the woman who is alone[a]
will have more children than the woman with a husband.”
2 This is what the Lord says.
“Make your tent bigger.
Open your doors wide.
Don’t think small!
Make your tent large and strong,
3 because you will grow in all directions.
Your children will take over many nations
and live in the cities that were destroyed.
4 Don’t be afraid!
You will not be disappointed.
People will not say bad things against you.
You will not be embarrassed.
When you were young, you felt shame.
But you will forget that shame now.
You will not remember the shame you felt
when you lost your husband.[b]
5 Your real husband is the one who made you.
His name is the Lord All-Powerful.
The Holy One of Israel is your Protector,[c]
and he is the God of all the earth!
6 “Like a woman whose husband has left her,
you were very sad.
You were like a young wife left all alone.
But the Lord has called you back to him.”
This is what your God says.
7 “For a short time I turned away from you,
but with all my love I will welcome you again.
8 I was so angry that for a while I did not want to see you.
But now I want to comfort you with kindness forever.”
The Lord your Savior said this.
9 “Remember, in Noah’s time I punished the world with the flood.
But I made a promise to Noah that I would never again destroy the world with water.
In the same way, I promise that I will never again be angry with you
and say bad things to you.
10 “The mountains may disappear,
and the hills may become dust,
but my faithful love will never leave you.
I will make peace with you,
and it will never end.”
The Lord who loves you said this.
11 “You poor city!
Enemies came against you like storms,
and no one comforted you.
But I will rebuild you.
I will use a beautiful mortar to lay the stones of your walls.
I will use sapphire stones when I lay the foundation.
12 The stones on top of the wall will be made from rubies.
I will use shiny jewels for the gates.
I will use precious stones to build the walls around you.
13 I, the Lord, will teach your children,
and they will have real peace.
14 You will be built on goodness.
You will be safe from cruelty and fear.
So you will have nothing to fear.
Nothing will come to hurt you.
15 I will never send anyone to attack you.
And if any army tries to attack you, you will defeat them.
16 “Look, I made the blacksmith. He blows on the fire to make it hotter. Then he takes the hot iron and makes the kind of tool he wants to make. In the same way, I made the ‘Destroyer’ to destroy things.
17 “People will make weapons to fight against you, but their weapons will not defeat you. Some people will say things against you, but anyone who speaks against you will be proved wrong.”
The Lord says, “That is what my servants get! They get the good things[d] that come from me, their Lord.

Worship definition- Reverent honour, homage paid to God, adoring reverence, glorify and adoration.
Worship:
When you are on your knees, in stillness, waiting on God. [God is silence does not equate to He abandons or forsakes you.“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Heb13:5]
When you take your stand, raise your arm and ready for battle like Joshua.
When you raise your arms in victory like Deborah in book of Judges 5.

The first song that is recorded in the living word:
The Song of Moses and Miriam
Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:
“I will sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
he has hurled into the sea.
2 “The Lord is my strength and my defense[a];
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3 The Lord is a warrior;
the Lord is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his army
he has hurled into the sea.
The best of Pharaoh’s officers
are drowned in the Red Sea.[b]
5 The deep waters have covered them;
they sank to the depths like a stone.
6 Your right hand, Lord,
was majestic in power.
Your right hand, Lord,
shattered the enemy.

7 “In the greatness of your majesty
you threw down those who opposed you.
You unleashed your burning anger;
it consumed them like stubble.
8 By the blast of your nostrils
the waters piled up.
The surging waters stood up like a wall;
the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy boasted,
‘I will pursue, I will overtake them.
I will divide the spoils;
I will gorge myself on them.
I will draw my sword
and my hand will destroy them.’
10 But you blew with your breath,
and the sea covered them.
They sank like lead
in the mighty waters.
11 Who among the gods
is like you, Lord?
Who is like you—
majestic in holiness,
awesome in glory,
working wonders?
12 “You stretch out your right hand,
and the earth swallows your enemies.
13 In your unfailing love you will lead
the people you have redeemed.
In your strength you will guide them
to your holy dwelling.
14 The nations will hear and tremble;
anguish will grip the people of Philistia.
15 The chiefs of Edom will be terrified,
the people[c] of Canaan will melt away;
16 terror and dread will fall on them.
By the power of your arm
they will be as still as a stone—
until your people pass by, Lord,
until the people you bought[d] pass by.
17 You will bring them in and plant them
on the mountain of your inheritance—
the place, Lord, you made for your dwelling,
the sanctuary, Lord, your hands established.
18 “The Lord reigns
for ever and ever.”
19 When Pharaoh’s horses, chariots and horsemen[e] went into the sea, the Lord brought the waters of the sea back over them, but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground.
20 Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing.
21 Miriam sang to them:
“Sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
he has hurled into the sea.”

IMG_4048.JPG
Praise definition- The act of expressing approval or admiration; commendation; laudation. The offering of grateful homage in words or song, as an act of worship.
Praise will protect your life and will preserve your soul.
There are two times in our lives to praise God:
When you feel like it.
When you don’t feel like it.
Either way, He is worthy to be praise! Giving God praise and gratitude is a choice we get to decide daily. As believers we have more than sufficient to be thankful. Jesus’ love and God’s grace are more than abundant to keep us grateful for the rest of eternity.

How He Loves! [Comment il nous aime! ¿Cómo nos ama!]

IMG_3924.JPG

Good Day, Beautiful People! [Bonne journée Beau! Buen día Bella!]

Today, I’m sharing with you one of my all time favourite song. I normally listen to the Hillsong worship version and Jesus Culture version. One day, I stumble upon the original version by John Mark McMillian. Love his touching story behind the beautiful song. I urge you to watch this clip, is so powerful.

IMG_3920.JPG

How He Loves (originally by John Mark McMillan)
He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree, Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us, oh,
Oh, how He loves us,
How He loves us all He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree, Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us, oh,
Oh, how He loves us,
How He loves us all Yeah, He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves.
And we are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If his grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about the way…
He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves. Yeah, He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us…
Oh, how He loves us…
Oh, how He loves us.

Walk for Freedom

IMG_3843.JPG

Good Day, Beautiful People!
Life is amazing itself. Every breathe is given to you is precious. Every life is important to God.
It is utterly repulsive and disgusting that Human Trafficking still exist. We must each play our role to help to stop this modern day slavery issue. There are quite a few good cause and campaign going on.
Supporting A21 campaign, walk for Freedom. Many of us walked in single file and prayed in silence for half an hour to create awareness of modern days slavery and human trafficking issue. If you are able and want to contribute in this area the web link is below.

Thy Will Be Done [Ta Volonté Soit Faite. Hágase tu voluntad]

IMG_3796.JPG

Good Day, Beautiful People!
Hope you doing well and moving forward with zeal, faith, joy, love and hope! I love worship and singing. Sharing with you another one of my favourite songs, Thy Will Be by Deborah Cox.

IMG_3795.JPG

Thy Will Be Done
I can’t lie and say I always understand why
The rain falls on me and I have to admit
I feel my faith is gone, it’s easy to believe
When sorrow never comes your way
And when I try to pray it seems the words they come out wrong
So everything that matters to me I give it all to you
‘Cause I’m tired of the way the crying feels
And just to let you know I have been hurt so many times
So I pray to God that this time loves for real, hmm
So even though I can’t see what tomorrow may bring
I believe in you ’cause you believe, you believe in me
And even when the night makes the light hard to see
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
I can’t lie and say I always smile but I try
The tears sometimes they come
And nothing people say can ease the pain
Oh, but when I close my eyes I see you reaching out for me
You tell me that this test I’m in, it won’t last always
So even though I can’t see what tomorrow may bring
I believe in you ’cause you believe you believe in me
And even when the night makes the light hard to see
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
And though the seasons may change
Still your love it remains
When this world soon shall pass
We’ll be together at [unverified]
Even though I can’t see
(What tomorrow may bring I believe)
I believe in you ’cause
(Ooh, ’cause you believe in me, yea ohh)
And even when the night makes
(The light so hard to see, ohh, ho)
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
(Ooh, yea)
(Oh yea, Thy kingdom come or Thy will be done)

Songwriters
FRANKLIN, KIRK

Enjoy this song by Deborah Cox

I will Wait [Je vais attendre. Voy a esperar.]

IMG_3747-0.JPG
Good Day, Beautiful People!
Just want to share one of favourite songs by Munford and Sons that brings me so much joy in listening. “Mumford & Sons are a British folk rock band. The band consists of Marcus Mumford (lead vocals, guitar, drums, mandolin), Ben Lovett (vocals, keyboards, accordion, drums), Winston Marshall (vocals, banjo, guitar, resonator guitar, dobro), and Ted Dwane (vocals, string bass, drums, guitar). Mumford & Sons were formed in December 2007, emerging from West London with such artists as Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn and Noah and the Whale.”-Wikipedia

Is hard to believe someone without faith create and sing songs that are so faith driven. At least, he believes in God and spirituality. Marcus has come from a good background. (Perhaps a bit of Pastor’s kid syndrome. Perhaps is the religious stuff that he doesn’t want to associate with… that is only my crazy assumption.) Simply enjoy and love their songs.

Well, I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of dust
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun

But I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
And relent
Well, you forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way shake the excess

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

Now I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh
And fix my eyes
A tethered mind freed from the lies

And I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

Enjoy this incredible song as many already loved!
