Waiting for the storm to pass

while i wait for the storm to pass

i have enough time to praise you

i have enough time to spend in your presence

reading and meditating your holy word.

In the midst of the storm teach me

to keep my eyes on you.

When it’s hardest to believe,

remind me of who i am to you.

Lord, you are great and mighty

Nothing in this world compares to you

You stay faithful even when i tend not to be.

while i am waiting for the storm to pass

let me sing you songs of thanksgiving.

You’ve given me a life i would never have dreamed of

peace that only comes from you

And even when it is hard not to quit

even when it is hard not to cry

deep in me i can hear you whisper: “you are not alone, i am here with you”.

This is what i live for, to know that you will never leave me alone

you always hold onto your promises.

While the storm is raging

and the enemies are happy about my downfall,

my sorrows and pains,

i trust in you.

Reason to Believe

the reason why i believe?
there is certainly one but i don’t really know
i believe because i have faith
deep inside of me i know i can get through
i believe because i’m convinced that there’s someone
near me guiding me, preaparing the road for me
i believe because they believe in me
if they are convinced i can do then who i am to say i can’t
i believe because i tried once, i pushed hard
hard enough to get through it and it worked
there’s a voice that reminds me always: “you can do it”
even when i am at my weakest point
i know there’s a power left i haven’t use
i know if i believe in it then i can do it
just like R. Kelly i believe i can fly
but that faith that makes me believe
doesn’t come from me it’s heavenly
because if i was left on my own then surely i would have abandonned in the middle of it
i believe because they believe in me
they give me enough courage to stand up and walk for myself
those friends, the family the Lord gave me, they helped me know that i’m more than what i think
they make me stronger with day
because of all this i can stand up and say “i can”
I know for sure i’m not alone that’s why i believe

loving myself back

i’ve always wonder why

why i feel so uneasy

even thought i believe you are here

i can’t help myself

but comeback to odd deeds

i know it isn’t good for me

although it feels good

but i can’t say no

why do i regret everytime  i fail to obey you

i pray every single day

i make a decision then i break it.

i cry, i feel bad

then lately i realised it takes time

one goes through suffering, rejection

and finally it happened

right in the middle of a relationship

right when i thought i found mr Right

but the more i stayed the more i felt bad

It’s over now, i went trough pain

but i’m happy today

i can live my life obeying you

more confident, facing life with a smile

i finally learn to appreciate myself

and to value it at the most

my body is the temple of the holy spirit

and i love myself back
