Hold my heart, Lord,
Heal me from all that breaks me,
Protect me from all that harms me,
Embrace me from all that robs me,
Love me from all that hates me.
Put your light in me,
strengthen me in Your Son, and
Forgive me from what I've done.
Please shine Your face on this fragile soul,
Lead me towards Your path,
and help me in the struggles that I'll face;
so I won't get carried away from You by the current.
Speak to me soft words,
that make me smile, that fill my heart.
Ones which will make me new, so I'll draw close to You.
I'm moving closer to You,
hoping to touch Your cloak.
Love me, Lord,
I need Your love.
I can't separate from You.
Close me in Your arms,
I pray that I won't get dragged away.
You are the rock that witstands this strong current.
The waves will still roar,
but You will never move.
You're here to stay.
Thank You, dear God.
Teach me how to follow You...
I trust in You, my heart says.
And for once, I believe that what it's saying is true.
For once I can say that it's true.
You know how sometimes your heart feels so confused, not knowing what it's feeling, doubting if what you're feeling is what you really want or what you really need... sometimes we might get tricked because of the confusion, but there's one single truth which you might be forgetting? the small truth that's been walking with you ever since you've accepted to follow the Lord.
This is what really struck me today, and i truly feel that it's God who's telling me this.. Even if you might not know what your heart is feeling, there's something which is definately true - that I love you, that you can trust in Me. My heart knows this truth and will keep on hanging to it - that i trust Him. It might be troubled from all that's going on, but the fact that it trusts God is keeping it secure.

Today would have been my grandma's 80th birthday, but God chose to call her on the 9th April of 2007. She was such a dear... I'll never forget the beautiful moments my sister and I spent with her, especially when we were young cause we practically lived with them. Her smile used to warm your heart, her laugh used to cheer you up even when you're down in the dumps.. I won't forget the beautiful gentle expression she used to have in her eyes.. Oh how I miss hugging her.. She had such faith in God, and loved with no exceptions, how I wish to be like her, so patient and kind.. She was such a loving mother, sometimes I wonder if I showed her enough gratitude for all the things she had done to me... I wish I could just hug her one more time, and tell her what a great person she's been in my life.. what a blessing she was.. even when she might have forgotten who I am, she never stopped being special to me. I really hope you're reading this nanna Joyce, wishing to see you face to face, but knowing that you're in God's arms makes me peaceful. Please keep my family in your prayers.. love you!
