I Love You Too Much – Diego Luna

Just watched The Book of Life and I fell in love with this song. *melancholy* Maybe this is the kind of song that I’ve always wanted to hear.

I love you too much
to leave without you loving me back
I love you too much
heaven’s my witness and this is a fact

I know I belong
when I sing this song
There’s lovable flow and it’s ours
’cause I love you too much

I live for your touch
I whisper your name night after night
I love you too much
There’s only one feeling and I know its right

I know I belong
when I sing this song
There’s lovable flow and it’s ours
’cause I love you too much

Heaven knows your name and I’ve been praying
to have you come here by my side
Without you a part of me is missing
Just to make you my whole life will fly

I know I belong
when I sing this song
There’s lovable flow and it’s ours
’cause I love you too much

I love…. you too much
I love you too much
Heaven’s my witness and this is a fact
You live in my soul
Your heart is my gold
There’s lovable flow but its mine ’cause I love you
There’s lovable love and it’s yours cause I love you
There’s lovable flow and it’s ours if you love me as much

Unstoppable Love

“God You pursue me
Your power and glory.
Unstoppable love that never ends.”

“That’s what love does-it pursues blindly, unflinchingly, and without end.

When you go after something you love, you’ll do anything it takes to get it, even if it costs everything.”

Love does by Bob Goff, Chapter 7, Page 52

Note to self: Just love, just do it.
Remembering Your unfailing love, even if when all else fails.

The Playlist of a Melancholic

So there, this is how melancholy works in me. Been listening to these songs for the nth time from whenever I feel sleepy reading and writing my thesis up until 3 am.

Introvert mode ’til dawn. 😀 I just so love God.

Reaching For You

 

Reaching For You

You created me inside Your great imagination
You’re the One who gave me my first breath
You have overseen my life and brought me to redemption
And I know that You’re not finished with me yet

I’m reaching for You
I’m singing to You
I’m lifting my hands to praise You
I’m lifting my voice to thank You
I’m reaching for You
Jesus I need You
I’m giving my heart to know You
I’m living my life to serve You
I’m reaching for You

You’re the one who spoke the Word of life to light my darkness
You opened up my eyes ’til I could see
Jesus You have promised to complete the work You started
Faithful to fulfill Your grace in me

Pour out Your love from heaven
Fill me until I overflow Lord I want more
Reach down Your hands from heaven
Pull me closer than ever before Lord I want more
Pour out Your love from heaven
Fill me until I overflow ’cause I want more
Reach down Your hands from heaven
Pull me closer than ever before Lord I want more

Oh I’m reaching
God I’m reaching for You

 

From the Inside Out

For the past few days, I’ve been longing to write something; something that is hard to start with. My mind and my heart were pre-occupied by thoughts and emotions which haunted me even in my dreams.  Then one night, after those ups and downs, bumps and turns, God positioned me in a place where I just wanted to be consumed, be emptied and be filled again. It was indeed a sweet and awesome time!

Truly, God moves in mysterious ways. He is the God of unexpected surprises.

To be honest, I’m a person who’s afraid of committing mistakes; that’s my biggest fear.   I’ve always wanted to make sure that my decisions will work rightly and justly. I don’t want to feel regrets. For me, coming up with a decision is one of the hardest actions especially when caught to choose between two most valuable things in life.

BUT God is a god of restoration. He reminded me that we can overcome failures, fears and confusion as long as we believe that His might and power exist, that He is a merciful god and a god of second chances.  He always gives us the freedom to choose. God honors the desires of our hearts. Desires are desires; Dreams are dreams, it will happen in His time and will always be in our hearts if we firmly and consistently long for it. He is a loving and supportive father.

Whenever we make decisions…

“Stay put where God has called you—don’t run to the world for help but keep depending on the Lord and His abounding favor. Don’t give up on God. When your faith is in the One who multiplied the loaves and fish and who knows everything, you will flourish even in times of famine!” Ptr. JP

Understanding His ways is totally committing our lives for Him; following His words is surrendering our own thoughts and deepening our ears. We should be reminded of this at all times (I’m also talking to myself). Let us encourage ourselves to love Him… from the inside out. His will above all else.

A friend says, “A song will define who you are or what season you are in.” I should thank God (and Hillsong) for this song. I was moved.

From the Inside Out

A thousand times I’ve failed

Still Your mercy remains 

And should I stumble again

I’m caught in Your grace

Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades

Never ending Your glory goes beyond all fame

In my heart and my soul

Lord I give You control

Consume me from the inside out, 

 Lord, let justice and praise

Become my embrace

To love you from the inside out.

Your will above all else

My purpose remains

The art of losing myself

In bringing You praise

Everlasting Your light will shine when all else fades

Never ending Your glory goes beyond all fame

Lastly, I want to give my sincerest gratitude to those people who were there to send some hugs and cheers, enlightening words, time and heartfelt phone calls. Thank you and lots of love! I felt so blessed and encouraged to be surrounded by loving people (like you).

God is good all the time! Thank You Dad!  I’m breaking free!

Prom Night

Prom by Sugarfree

cover: https://soundcloud.com/ejay-yatco/sa-wakas-prom

Puso kong di mapalagay
Pwede ba kitang tabihan
Kahit na may iba ka nang kasama

Ito na ang gabing di malilimutan
Dahan-dahan tayong nagtinginan

Parang ating ang gabi
Para bang wala tayong katabi
At tayo’y sumayaw
Na parang di na tayo bibitaw
Bibitaw

Nalalasing sa iyong tingin
Di malaman laman ang gagawin
Habang lumalamim ang gabi
Ay lumalapit ang ating mga labi

Ito na ang gabing di malilimutan
Tayo’y naglakad ng dahan-dahan

Parang atin ang gabi
Para bang wala tayong katabi
At tayo’y sumayaw
Na parang di na tayo bibitaw
Bibitaw

Matapos man ang sayaw
Pangakong di ka bibitaw

Parang atin ang gabi
Parang atin ang gabi
Parang atin ang gabi
Para bang wala tayong katabi
At tayo’y sumayaw
Na parang di na tayo bibitaw

Parang atin ang gabi
Para bang wala tayong katabi
At tayo’y sumayaw
Na parang di na tayo bibitaw
Di na tayo bibitaw

May kakaibang tibok. Di mo mawari kung ang puso mo ba’y sasabog. Nakapanlalamig. Tila bang isang gabing hangin lamang ang inyong naririnig. Dinarasal na sana’y di na matapos ang gabi. May miminsang ang mga mata ay mag kakahulihan ng tingin. Ahhh. Ganun daw sa prom.

Oo. Di ko alam kung ano ang pakiramdam ng nakapag-Prom. Eh ang KJ kasi ni Sir Principal. Kami lang ang batch na di nakaranas ng ganoon. Kesyo uso kasi ang jontisan at iba pang nakawan ng di mawaring uhm. Basta. So ayun, walang tugtog ng mga awiting mapapaindak ang aming mga paa, walang mga damit at saya na nagpabonggahan, walang mga pusong nag kapanaan, walang mga matang nakatitigan.

First dance? Di ko na maalala kung sino. Kasi naman parang wala lang. Pero ang sigurado ko ay sa kasalan yun. Ganoon kasi sa probinsya kapag may ikinakasal. Lahat ng abay ay dapat makipagsayaw sa kapareha na itinakda ng mga ikakasal. Pero, dib a? Iba pa din kung sa Prom yung first dance mo? Tapos kayo ng iyong iniirog ang nagkaroon ng pagkakataon upang angkinin ang oras? Eh kaso ayun, tapos na. Wala na. Di na maibabalik pa ang oras.

Dadating ba ang panahon na pinakahihintay? Na tayo’y ay magkakatabi, magkahawak kamay habang sumasabay sa himig at ritmo ng musika, magkakatinginan na parang atin ang mundo? Narito lang ako maghihintay.

PS: Save the last dance for me.

Without You Lyrics by Audra Lynn

Without You – Audra Lynn

Song:Without You
Artist:Audra Lynn
Album: Fading

Verse:

Without You I have nothing; without You life is gone
Without You I have nothing but these broken words
And lifeless melody
Lead me to this empty song

Chorus:

Will You be the words I sing, will You be my melody
Will You be the song that I sing, the life within me
Will You be my everything

Bridge:

You are the light that keeps me going
You are the reason that I sing
You are the only One found worthy, Jesus
And so my song shall be of You

Love Came Down- Angie Miller (version)

The feeling was unexplained. Goosebumps. To hear a song for the Lord in a worldwide TV show was really, really, really, AWESOME!

Love came down is an original song of Bethel music. Kari Jobe also has a version of this song.  Cheers to Angie Miller! Soar high! Arise and shine!

Love Came Down (full lyrics)

If my heart is overwhelmed
And I cannot hear Your voice
I hold on to what is true
Though I cannot see

If the storms of life they come
And the road ahead gets steep
I will lift these hands in faith
I will believe

I’ll remind myself
Of all that You’ve done
And the life I have
Because of Your son

(Chorus)
Love came down and rescued me
Love came down and set me free
I am Yours
Lord I’m forever Yours
Mountains high or valley low
I sing out and remind my soul
I am Yours
I am forever Yours

When my heart is filled with hope
Every promise comes my way
When I feel Your hands of grace
Rest upon me

Staying desperate for You, God
Staying humble at Your feet
I will lift these hands in praise
I will believe

I’ll remind myself
Of all that You’ve done
And the life I have
Because of Your son

Love came down and rescued me
Love came down and set me free
I am Yours
I am forever Yours
Mountains high or valley low
I sing out and remind my soul
I am Yours
I am forever Yours

I am Yours
I am Yours
All my days
Jesus, I am Yours
(X2)

Love came down and rescued me
Love came down and set me free
I am Yours
I am forever Your’s
Mountains high or valley low
I sing out and remind my soul
I am Yours
I am forever Yours
(X2)

Yeah, I am yours, I’m yours, I am yours
Jesus I am yours

I Will Wait For You- Janette

This is such a great poem. Thanks to Ate Mars for sharing this. ❤

So, here it is…

So it seemed, that it was cool, so cool, for everyone to be in a relationship but me..
So I took matters into my own hands… and ended up with him
Him who displayed the characteristics of a CHEATER, a LIAR, an ABUSER, & a THIEF
So.. why was I surprised when he broke into my heart?
I called 911, but I was cardiac arrested for aiding and abetting,
Cause it was ME who let him in…
Claiming we were “just friends”..
It was already decided for me by the first date, that even if he wasn’t!
I was gonna make him ‘The One’..
You know… I was tired of being alone,
And I simply made up in my mind, that it was about that time so I decided to drag him along for the ride,
Cause I was always the bridesmaid & never the bride..
A virgin in the physical, but mentally just a grown woman on the corner in heat!
Who was tired of the wait!
So I was gonna make him ‘The One’.
He had a… form of Godliness… but not much..
But hey, hey I can change him! So (honey) I’ll TAKE him, I mean he’s close… enough
Ready to sell my aorta for a quarter, not knowing the value of its use to me
Arties so clogged with MY will, it blocked HIS Will from flowing through me
So, I thank Christ that His blood pressure gave this heart an attack,
That flatlined my obscured vision, put me flat on my back
Through my ignorance He sawed,
Through my sternum He sawed & cracked open my chest
TO transplant Psalm 51:10
A new heart & a renewed right spirit within!
So now I fully understand,
Better yet I thoroughly comprehend,
How much I NEED to wait… for You.
See, the bad thing is that I knew he wasn’t you from the beginning..
Cause in the beginning was the Word
And he didn’t even sound or shine like Your Son
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks,
And all he could whisper was sweet, empty nothings –
Which meant NOTHING.
He couldn’t even pray when I NEEDED him to
Asking him to fast would be absurd!
So forget about being cleansed & washed with water through the Word…
But I know You.. ♥
You were already praying for me
Even never having met me
Let me assure you, I will wait for you.
I will no longer date, socialize or communicate with carbon copies of you
To appease my boredom or to quench my thirstiness I have for attention
And short-lived compliments from ‘sorta kindas’.
You know…. He ‘sort kinda’ right, but ‘sorta kinda’ wrong?
His first name LUKE,
His last name WARM.
I, I won’t settle for false companionship
I won’t lay in the embrace of his arms,
Attempting to find some closeness,
But never feeling so far apart cause, I just wanna be held
Cause ♫”all I gotta do is Say” No!
NO more ‘almost sessions’ of ‘almost coming close’
Passing winks & buying drinks,
I’ma, I’ma, I’ma flirt!♫
Who flirts with the ideology of,
‘Can you just tell me how much I can get away with & still be saved?’
NO more.
I’ll stay in my bed… alone, and write poems, about how I will wait for you
He won’t even come close,
Our fingers won’t even interlock
We won’t even exchange breath
Cause I have thoughts that I’ve ‘saved as’ in a file that God has only equipped you to open.
I will no longer get weighted down,
From so-called friends & family talks,
About the concern for my biological clock
When I serve the Author of Time.
Who is NOT subject to time,
But I’M subject to Him,
He has the ability to STOP, FAST FORWARD, PAUSE, or REWIND at any given time…
So if we could role play,
You would be Abraham & I would be Sara
Or you can be Isaac & I can be Rebecca – a servant’s answered prayer
I am bone of your bone, flesh of your flesh,
Made up of your rib Adam!
And once we meet, like electrons
I will be bound to your nucleus, completely indivisible atom.
We even speak the same math: 1 + 1 + 1 = 3, which really equals 1 if you add Him.
We were all created in His image,
But you have the ability to reflect, project & even detect the Son.
If I were to explain what you looked like,
You would have to look like a star,
A son of the Son..
I would gain energy simply from the light on me.
I would need you , in order to complete my photosynthesis
I await your revelation, but once again from the genesis, I will wait for you ♥

And I will know you… because when you speak I will be reminded of Solomon’s wisdom,
Your ability to lead will remind me of Moses,
Your faith will remind me of Abraham,
Your confidence in God’s Word will remind me of Daniel,
Your inspiration will remind me of Paul,
Your heart for God will remind me of David,
Your attention to detail will remind me of Noah,
Your integrity will remind me of Joseph,
And your ability to abandon your own will, will remind me of the disciples,
But Your ability to love selflessly & unconditionally will remind me of Christ.
But I won’t need to identify you by any special Matthews or any special Marks,
Cause His word will be tatted all over your heart.
And you will know me, and you will find me,
Where… the boldness of Esther meets the warm closeness of Ruth.
Where the hospitality of Lydia is aligned with the submission of Mary,
Which is engulfed in the tears of a praying Hanna.
I will be the one, drenched in Proverbs 31… waiting for you.

But to my Father, my Father who has known me before I was birthed into this earth
Only if you should see fit…
I desire Your will above mine,
So even if you call me to a life of singleness,
My heart is content with YOU – the One who was sent.
YOU are the greatest love story ever told,
The greatest story ever known
You are forever my judge & I’m forever Your witness
And I pray that I’m always found on a mission about my Father’s business
Oh, I will always be Yours!
And I will always wait for You Lord, more than the watchmen wait for the morning…
More than the watchmen wait for the morning… I WILL WAIT ♥
