1989 post

It sounds silly, but I don’t feel worthy.  Perhaps that’s why I am in awe.

But all I keep saying through my head is ‘Don’t you dare fall.’

I’m waiting on Him, not meddling anymore.

If it’s His will, He’ll make the call.

And that, my friend, is all :).

How could it be

What an awesome thing it is to come home from church completely refreshed and full of joy!  We sang a new song today (well, it was new for me) and though it was in Chinese, I belted out the translated version displayed underneath the lyrics…

With a truthful heart,

Lord, I come before Thee

Open my eyes, so I can see.

With a grateful heart,

Lord I come to receive Your spirit of humbleness and grace.


How could it be, that You would care for me?

How could it be, Your blood was shed for me?

How could it be, You’ve crowned me with Your grace and glory?

O my soul, sing praises to the King.


You have removed my bondage, my chains.

You have removed, my burdens and shame.

You have removed, my sorrows and pain.

O my soul, sing praises to His name.

– How Could It Be, Eric Hsieh/Sandy Yu (Streams Of Praise)

Last night I found my freedom.  Secrets that I’d been holding onto for nearly two years were finally disclosed and the incredible burden was finally lifted.  Never will I forget that moment and never will I cease to be grateful for the strength and courage He gave me to really let it all go.  I taunted the S dude back, ‘Ah ha! That’s it, you got nothing left on me now.  I’ve won, I’ve won, I’ve won!’

Lord, let me never be so proud that I can’t see the errors of my ways,

Let me never be so self-righteous that I forget to sing your praise. 

Lord, please keep me humble for the rest of my days, 

Please let my light shine for You tonight, tomorrow and always.

no more words

Be wary my dear, of the ones who will try to steal your heart.

I hope you will hear, what is now almost a lost art,

Keep your eyes firmly on, the one whom you will marry one day,

For soon distance will be gone, and there’ll be no more words to say…

But, ‘I do’.

Ah, the beauty of having more than one blog, is that you can post more than once in a day and it won’t look overly excessive :P.  There is a reason behind all this incessant blogging and as much as it is because of exam procrastinating, it has a lot to do with this as well…

the acoustic version

And so our paths collided, but now they diverge.

What had pained me so much, no longer hurts.

For the sake of four, here is where it must end.

So fare thee well, my once good friend.

You’re like, What? I thought you moved already! Haha, I have and I hope you’ve poked around the new home a bit… As one friend commented, it feels ‘breezy’ :D.  Lovin’ it over there- all new and shiny :).  But (as the welcome message alludes to) this blog will continue… it’ll be reserved for the more personal, hopeless romantic, Jesus lovin’ and other miscellaneous do-dads side of Ames that not everyone needs to see right off the bat.  If this blog were music, it would be the acoustic version of my life :P.  It’ll be more intimate, ‘the sort of stuff you’d share with only people who knew you best because you know they won’t judge you but just accept you the way you are’ kinda music… no new readers will be directed here, but I won’t turn the private function on because at the end of the day, blogs are to be shared and hand-written journal entries are not ;).
