Change this heart sidewalk prophets

I've been trying to run away from this false reality 
no matter where I turn my back You're always right in front of me 
so I push You away, but I don't know that I'm wrong 
I don't know the words to say to make my faith that strong 

so I will pray to You right now 
to take away my sin 
heal away my brokenness 
and change this heart again 

without You I am nothing 
but a weak and dying man 
so I will pray to You right now 
and change this heart again 

what is going through the motions 
if my life is still the same 
everyday's the same old puzzle 
all the pieces re-arranged 
and I refuse Your help 
out of my own selfish pride 
Lord I have so many masks 
to cover up and hide 

so I will pray to You right now 
to take away my sin 
come heal away my brokenness 
and change this heart again 
without You I am nothing 
but a weak and a dying man 

so I will pray to You right now 
come change this heart again 

so I will pray to You my Lord 
to change this heart again 

Know that u r loved


Phil 4:13

Trust in the Lord

A note for failure just like you

The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.
Though they stumble, they will never fall,
for the LORD holds them by the hand
.” (Psalms 37:23-24NIV)

Failure presents an opportunity to examine yourself and find your flaws. Rather than give up, you are wise to ask God to use you despite your flaws. When you have failed (surely you will), it is a good time to restore your relationship with God by admitting your mistakes, confessing your sin, and asking for forgiveness (feeling guilty is good for the soul but very hazardous in a long run). Now, Psalms 37 above is surely for the believers. They are those who are 'godly' but sometime ‘stumble’ and ‘fall’ in their walk with God – this is what He do to them when they are facing failure: “the LORD holds them by the hand.” Through it all, God can use your humble spirit and brokenness to rebuild you into the person he created you to be.

Pic from:
You are not alone. Who hasn’t failed? Read the Scriptures – the apostle Paul failed; Peter failed; every one of the twelve apostles failed. David, Israel’s greatest king, ‘a man after God’s own heart,” failed. Moses, giant among the Israelites, giver of the Law, deliverer of the people, failed. Jacob, father of Israel, failed; Isaac, son of promise, failed. Abraham, progenitor of Israel, father of the faithful, prototype of those who are righteous through faith, failed. Even our first parents, Adam and Eve, in their human perfection, failed.* Who hasn’t failed? 

Richard Halverson rightly observed, “It is not failing that is the problem; it is what one does after he failed.” Don't give up, Rise Up, Look Up!

The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.”
Hero in this note, Focus in this note is the One who directs,
who delights, who holds you - The LORD

As God's chosen people


Kasih yang sempurna
Telah ku trima dari Mu
Bukan kerna kebaikan ku
Hanya oleh Kasih Karunia Mu
Kau pulihkan aku
Layakkan ku tuk dapat memanggil Mu Bapa

Kau bri yg ku pinta
Saat ku mencari ku mendapatkan
Ku ketuk pintu Mu dan Kau bukakan
Sbab Kau Bapa ku
Bapa yang kekal

Takkan Kau biarkan
Aku melangkah hanya sendirian
Kau selalu ada bagiku
Sbab Kau Bapaku
Bapa yang kekal....

Every moment with God

Almost the end...

We have almost come to an end of the term. So the AJK PERKEB 2011/12. Even as the interview was done today, i remembered a year ago.. Those questions asked and the answers. The commitment and etc. 1 year flies so fast. Now I am ending my term as AJK already. It's time to move on to other things. I am really glad for the  privilege and opportunity to serve in PERKEB. PERKEB PERKEB. A  good place for us to serve and to grow.

Whether we become AJK or not, it doesn't matter so much. What matters most is whether we are growing in the Lord or not during our students life because working life will be different altogether. Some of us are leaving UKM and soon to own the title ALUMNI whereas some  are moving to another year in UKM. Ahhh.. I can't wait to say, "IT'S MY FINAL YEAR!!"

Whatever it is... May each and everyone of us continue to serve the Lord in various ways and may our life be blessings. =) Nites.

BUT this is what I saw...

"But this is what I saw.

I saw friends who had never shown an interest in politics coming with their wives and children to say they wanted free and fair elections, because rightly or wrongly, they believe that the electoral system is flawed. They were not there to be violent.

I saw in the narrow alleys cutting through to Lebuh Ampang, a group of young and old Muslims, praying as a Jemaah in their distinctive yellow T-shirts. They were not there to be violent.

I saw many mothers and their teenaged daughters; fathers holding up small children. They were not there to be violent.

I saw the normally reticent Chinese, many young people among them, taking to the streets — either in green “Stop Lynas” or yellow Bersih tees. I saw this refined old Malay gentleman, well dressed and in his 60s, holding on firmly to an equally distinguished looking Chinese gentleman of similar age, marching to show that they were friends united in a cause. I saw this elderly Chinese lady, caught by a skull-capped, bearded PAS Unit Amal, as she almost stumbled and fell while taking photographs. I heard him say: “Aunty, jaga-jaga sikit. Jangan jatuh…”

I saw the lawyer-type Indian gentlemen and ladies marching proudly, side by side their spouses and children, laughing and joking in between chanting “Hidup Bersih.” I saw them passing water bottles to those who did not have any; I saw them aiding the old; I saw them carrying the young; I saw — after such a long, long time, Malaysians who represent the spectrum of the Malaysia that should be, united in purpose.

None of them were there to be violent.

Many a time I choked up — like when they burst into the national anthem and despite the heat and the rush of bodies, trying to stand at attention. Like when they played around with the huge yellow balloon, pushing it from one to another, like a carnival. Like when I saw the children and fathers of different races looking out for each other, offering a tissue or a sweet, holding up umbrellas for the old. Like when this teenaged Chinese boy asked me: “Uncle, why you not wearing yellow?” Like when the old Kelantanese man — whom I knew not from Adam — spoke to me in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman: “Dah make? Make dulu. Lama nak tunggu.” (Have you eaten? Better eat. It’s a long wait.)

Who, I ask myself, among them was there to be violent? To whom should we pose this question?

Tell us Tan Sri Fuad. Tell us Datuk Seri Hishammuddin. Please tell us Datuk Seri Najib and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. Please tell us Datuk Seri Rais Yatim because you, who once led unruly demonstrations when you were in Semangat 46, had so many mean things to say about us. Tell us Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, you who ruled us for 23 years and brooked no dissent — who among this crowd of elderly to very young, representing the 1 Malaysia you all pay lip service to, who were the violent ones out to overthrow the Government?"

* I am really touched by the unity of the people. Although there was violence but other than that, people who really understand what Bersih is all about stay calm, and helped each other in the midst of standing under scorching hot sun.. No racism, no sexism and whatever-sm on that day. People just stay united*
