God be the solution

It is not a human right
To stare not fight
While broken nations dream
Open up our eyes, so blind
That we might find
The Mercy for the need

Singing, Hey now
Fill our hearts with your compassion
Hey now
As we hold to our confession
Yeah

It is not too far a cry
To much to try
To help the least of these
Politics will not decide
If we should rise
And be your hands and feet

Singing, Hey now
Fill our hearts with your compassion
Hey Now
As we hold to our confession

Woah-oh-oh,
God be the solution
Woah-oh-oh
We will be Your hands and be Your feet.
Yeah, yeah

Higher than a circumstance
Your promise stands
Your love for all to see
Higher than protest line and dollar signs
Your love is all we need

Only You can mend the broken heart
And cause the blind to see
Erase complete the sinners past
And set the captives free
Only You can take the widows cry
And cause her heart to sing
Be a Father to the fatherless
Our Savior and our King
We will be Your hands, we will be Your feet
We will run this race
On the darkest place, we will be Your light
We will be Your light

We will be Your hands , we will be Your feet
We will run this race for the least of these
In the darkest place, we will be your light
We will be your light
We’ll sing

Woah-oh-oh,
God be the solution
Woah-oh-oh
We will be Your hands and be Your feet.

Woah-oh-oh,
God be the solution
Woah-oh-oh
We will be Your hands and be Your feet.
Yeah, yeah

We will run we will run
We will run with the solution [2x]

We will be Your hands we will be Your feet
We will run this race for the least of these
In the darkest place we will be Your light
We will be Your light
We sing

Need: strength courage and hope

Audience of One

So I was thinking about stuff as usual, and I really wonder why I live to please people sometimes. :(
I always get my priorities screwed up!!!!!! Sigh.
I really hate it when I say one thing and end up doing another, because I really don’t like it when people do that
I act on impulse most of the time then I look back and regret.
Praying tht I will grow more in this area!
Ok need to get myself together…..

Oh and I AM SEVENTEEN!!!
I think this birthday was my best birthday yet hehe it was so simple yet I felt so blessed all the same, and I really have to thank God for that. Morning with the 4L peeps, afternoon with yhope people + God, night with the bestfriends and the family. I am really blessed to have all these people supporting me and being there for me :) Pictures when I have the time (= never) Thank you to everyone who took the time to give me smth/ write me a card/ wish me, I really really appreciate it!! I love every single one of my presents, especially the one from my mum :D

So I finished my new year shopping yesterday and yay I can’t wait for CNY already. Clarinets Tuan Yuan Fan this Friday, I really love all my clarinets (L) Oh & third day of cny @ ada’s!! I smell fun :)

5C13 has been a joy to be around, I love laughing with them!! We’re all so noisy outside class but so quiet in class haha. Michelle (Teo) is hilarious btw. HAHA one syll lang, and Matthew in the library today + suaning ahemahem + waking each other up during lectures and many more :) I’m excited to do ____ tgt and all the future outings~

Had SP today, and it turned out to be….. Well shan’t say here haha but it made me think abt some things!! Band tmr yay I love my section :D

P.S. I am actually quite afraid of you now :(

So you could open one that leads you to a perfect road

All my life I’ve been so afraid – afraid of being judged, afraid of offending someone, afraid of letting myself/ people down, afraid of losing people. But yknow what? Whether I fear it or not, it’s just going to happen no matter what.

I’ve been so careful all my life, and I can honestly say that I am tired of it. I’ve had enough of having no confidence in myself because that feeling really sucks. I’m tired of regretting not saying what I had to say because once the opportunity is lost it can never come back. I’m tired of not letting people in because I’m afraid I’ll be vulnerable.

We’ve only got one life to live, and I’ve gotta live it right. Not to please others, not to worry every single time I’m out of my comfort zone, but to trust in His word and to live a life of passion and dreams.

Dear God, please let 2011 be a year of transformation.

But we’ve got our love to pay the bills

Ms Fang asked us to describe our first day of school today in one word haha and my word was read but I think it’s more of ignorance :(

There’s like so many things we don’t know out there in the world and I really don’t want to live in my little bubble, and stay in my comfort zone. If I am overwhelmed (which I am) by Senior High right now, how am I going to face the world out there? I really really felt like stupid in the classes today oh god. And not even in the retarded sense of stupid. I am challenged, I am stressed, but I am not going to just leave it at that!!! I don’t want to just live this 2 years of my life complaining how tough senior high life is, how much homework I haveto complete etcetc, but to really make to most of all my opportunities here, limited as they are. Who am I to complain about limited opportunities when I don’t even make full use of every one that has been given to me?

Turning seventeen on Saturday. It’s just going to be another day haha funny how birthdays don’t mean so much anymore. If you ask me in December I’d probably be excited about it, but now I’m just like, oh, ok. Another year older lor. Although I’m loving the fact that it’s on a Saturday and I get to spend half of it in service hehe

You Won’t Feel A Thing

(by The Script ♥)

I’ve been kicked right down
I’ve been spat in the face
I’ve been pulled, weighed down
To the lowest place
I’ve been lied to, shamed
I have been disgraced
Been ex-communicated from every holy place
I’ve been beat up and robbed
I’ve been left for dead
For the way I look
For the things I said

When trouble thinks it’s found us
The world falls down around us
I promise baby you won’t ever
You won’t ever feel a thing

Cause I will take it on the chin
Eh, for you
So lay your cuts and bruises over my skin
I promise you won’t feel a thing
Cause everything the world could throw
I’ll stand in front. I’ll take the blow for you.
For you.

I’ve been cleared on the street
I’ve been left in the cold
Had my dreams held up
Had them shot full of holes
I’ve been laughed at, burnt, beat and butt of the joke
I’ve been lit up in flames
I have gone down in smoke
I’ve been stabbed in the back
While they promised the earth
Tried to keep my head high
For all I am worth

Outside our double glazing
I know a war is raging
I promise baby you won’t ever
You won’t ever feel a thing

Cause I will take it on the chin
Eh, for you
So lay your cuts and bruises over my skin
I promise you won’t feel a thing
Cause everything the world could throw
I’ll stand in front. I’ll take the blow for you.
For you

Yeah
And if I fall here
At least you know my dear that I would die for you
Promise you won’t ever feel a thing
And if I fall here
At least you know my dear that I would die for you
Promise you won’t ever feel a thing

Cause I will take it on the chin
Eh, for you
So lay your cuts and bruises over my skin
I promise you won’t feel a thing
Cause everything the world could throw
I’ll stand in front. I’ll take the blow for you.
For you.

Yeah everything the world could throw
I’ll take the sticks, I’ll take the stones for you
For you

So I was listening to this song on the mrt after orientation the other day and I got really refreshed amidst all my exhaustion because it kind of reminded me how Jesus died on the cross for us because He loves us so so so much :) The lyrics are super meaningful, do give it a listen! Hehe

Gonna post about orientation soon! Stay tuned~

NERDTALIE YO

Hahaha. I’ve been craving for the strangest things ever since school started but they can’t be satisfied. Boo :(

And I’m not getting used to the early mornings cos everytime I wake up in the morning I’m like OH MY GOD WHY JUST LET ME SLEEP ALREADY then when I’m on the bus and mrt my face is like perpetually -______-

So Senior High so far has been pretty good, apart from the fact tht the real senior high is going to start soon, and I can tell by the lectures tht it’s gonna be really tough man. Especially worried for Lit but I’m prepared to work hard! I’m afraid that I will let fatigue take control of me, but fear can be replaced by faith because God is with me :) I’m gonna need all the support I an get, so thank God in advance for my family and friends whom I know will take me through this journey hehe. We have Orientation @ ECP tomorrow!! Praying for good weather hehe.

I have so many things to thank God for btw!!! Firstly the gemma babes + guys hehe the chalet was really better than expected, so many people turned up hehe and really glad that we managed to have a good talk to know each other better too!! We talked for like more than 5 hours la telling each other stories and stuff it was quite heartwarming haha awww I love you guys. The fact that we still remain so close even after 2 years is srsly awesome :) Hope we can more more stuff like this even years down the road!!

Secondly I wanna thank God for the clarinets yay haha really got to know some juniors better during the chalet and they are all so epic omg -_- I LOVE LESTER HE IS SO DAMN CUTE. I feel like a pedophile but wdv~ Hahaha so cute sia. Had a whole lot of fun playing pig with them + laughing and talking crap + sleeping hahaha slept more than I expected to man. BBQ was super longggggg haha cos we were slow in starting the fire. Wanted to rush to send pinky off but couldn’t make it in time :( Take care adelaide faith (L) Went for frozen yogurt (omg I found my fav brand but I don’t recall the name) with Poh and Isabel, had a good talk hehe too bad it had to end. Walked a lonngggggg walk with isabel and had a h2h heart talk to :) Breakfast + arcade in the morning, omg drum game & bishibashi ftw. I love my clarinets~~~~

Lastly, 5C13!!! Hehe they have been super friendly and partly due to the fact tht I already know more than half the class, I feel more comfortable and not so worried about snr high cos I know I have these people to brave it out with me :) Haha I really want to get to know them better though, plenty of time, today’s only the 2nd day haha. I like our CT too she’s so cute haha breegeetee fang \m/ I’m excited for the next 2 years with these awesometastic people man :D

I have to thank so many people that was part of my year, I am so grateful for everyone who’s been in my life who has taught me something one way or another. In 2010, I learnt to let go of so many things tht I held on to for too long, and I’m really glad I did cos the feeling of letting go is just indescribbable :) I really want to thank God for so many things this year and here they are!!

1. I wanna thank God for standing by me all this time, even though there were times I felt like I could do it on my own, but everyone needs God and I’ve learnt that the more you try to keep things under your control, the more they will go out of control, so I’ve learnt to rely so much more on God, so that He can unfold the plans He has for me hehehe. I think I’ve really changed A LOT in terms of my perspective of things now, and what I prioritise. It’s making me a happier person, and all glory goes to You Lord :)

2. I wanna thank 4L and the fishes in particular for giving me an awesome environment in class tht makes me laugh every single day in school with yall, I think our class became much livelier in 2010 & I’m really thankful for this class of 35 girls and 1 guy. You guys appear quiet but yall are crazier than I ever thought you would be :) Love you all and hope we will still keep in touch tbis year :D

3. I wanna thank is my LG!! Even though I wasn’t very regular during school days you guys still stuck by me no matter what and encouraged me so much esp during EOYs :) and i think tht you guys really helped me grow so much this hols, like in camp and everything and I really thank God for you guys :) Esp my sheppie haha  really love you a lot babeeeee

4. Gemma babes!!!! Ada Ger Xinxin Ruowei Vivienne Weilin: Hahaha you guys have been through thick and thin with me man, I’m so glad tht we remain this close after 4 years of friendship, and I thank God for bringing yall into my life because without you idk what i’d be!! Thank you for standing by me through all tht I’ve done/ everything we’ve experienced. To vivienne and weilin: you guys are the best friends anyone could ever ask for I love you!!!! <3

5. My section mates!! Haha I’ve really come to appreciate you guys more in 2010, my last Rhythm w Junior High was super memorable I’ll never forget it and even thoigh we sort of drifted apart in the 2nd part of the year, I really appreciate you guys lots for supporting me when I was section leader, even though I wasn’t the best I could be. See yall at clarinet chalet and I can’t wait for Sydney srsly hehehe. To the seniors: thank you for being so patient w us and i love playing w you guys wooooot yall brighten up the atmosphere all the time :)

6. Last but not least my family!!!! Though we’ve been through not so good times together, I think our family bond really strengthened this year and I really hope all of you can come to church on Sunday or sth as a family!! Mum, I’m so glad God softened your heart and you allowed me to come to church and I promise tht I won’t let you nor Him down :)

I know this is pretty random but, if you can talk so much over sms and inititate conversations over sms how come you don’t talk in real life? Just a question hahahaha.
