You can breathe all the stars
You can hush the raging storms
Yet You formed me and You called me by my name
You can walk on the ocean
Part the sea and halt the sun
Yet You see me and You hear my every cry
I surrender all
To the Savior of my soul
Let the weak in me say I am strong
You’re my refuge and my song
I will trust in You for all my days
Let my fears and doubts be cast away
You’re my strength I will not fear
Jesus I will call upon Your name
You are my hiding place
Broken steps broken hearts
You are mending every part
I am safe and I’m covered by Your grace
Only You and Your light
Could turn my darkness into dawn
By Your blood death has lost and love has won
Last Friday was my last day before my long 4-months maternity leave, n’ just right before Lebaran holiday. My hubby have one week holiday too ’til next Monday, so really thank God for quality time & days we can enjoy together 😉
Last night we, with my mom & younger bro, spent a quality time dinner together too and I really thank God for this rare moment.. Wish my dad can join too..
Anyway, this morning when I wake up and meditate upon His words, God brought my mind to remember all the goodness He’s done for the last couple of months.. God has delivered us from our problems and have given us ‘more room to breathe’ now.. Really praise Him! I remember there were two occassions in which I could really feel God’s deliverance.. They are really God’s miracles for both of us.. Just in time. Although I wished it could come earlier, when God’s time arrived eventually it IS just perfect & beautiful..
Another thing I’d like to share with you now,
I love musics..In many hard phases in my life so far, specific songs always be a remark in the end when finally I got through the difficult times by God’s grace… For example, for the last couple of months, Pak Niko’s CD “Mukjizat Masih Ada” really encouraged me a lot to keep going through the challenges. Honestly, God has used the songs to strenghten me & my hubby. Those are simple songs sung with no complicated vocal note. However, it’s proven – for a song to have a strong anointing power, it doesn’t really depend on the vocal, musical arrangements, or deliberate keynote. Sure they are all important, but a song that is “simply nice” or “anointed” is just different – your heart and spirit can tell, more than what your ears could enjoy.
And I praise God how He has used one CD to bless me a lot 🙂
I suggest to really choose right whatever music you listen to, because just like what the Bible says, ‘Faith comes from hearing, hearing the word of God’.
Well, that is for now. I’m counting days to come for my delivery (my cousin’s whose due date was only two weeks away from mine have given birth to a wonderful baby boy yesterday!). Meaning I have to be ready soon!
Please Lord, I need Your grace to endure all the labor process… I need Your presence to be there with me. Give me Your divine peace & comfort. In Jesus’ name.
Thank You so much Lord 🙂
I love this old song written in 1989…
I firstly knew this song from Ipet only months ago, then the lyrics and melody kept resounding in my head… So I was very pleased to find this song in Lakewood Church “Speak to Nations” CD I bought last month 😀 Here is the lyrics:
Who can satisfy my soul like You
Who on earth could love me
and comfort like You do
Who could ever be more faithful true,
Who can satisfy, who can satisfy like You
There is a fountain who is a King
Victorious warrior, and Lord of everything
My Rock my Shelter my very own
Blessed Redeemer who reigns upon the throne
Lord Jesus, this is my desire, for You the only One who can satisfy me…
Reveal more of Your beauty and glory in my life, make me falling even deeper in love with You
My Lord, My King, truly You’re alone to be glorified in my life and in the whole earth… 🙂
This old hymn is one of my fave songs. Listening to it always reminds me how great the love that God has for me through His Son, Jesus Christ…
In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease,
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.
In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe,
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
For all what You’ve done I will thank You
For all what You’re going to do
For all that You’ve promised
And all that You are
Is all that has carried me through
Jesus I thank You
And I thank You, Thank You Lord
And I thank You, Thank You Lord
Reff: Thank You for loving and setting me free
Thank You for giving Your love just for me
How I thank You
Jesus I thank You
Gracefully thank You
