His arms are open wide

Oh heart of mine, why must you stray?
From one so fair you run away
And one more time you have to pay
The heaviness of needless shame

Oh heart of mine, come back home
You've been too long out on your own
And He's been there all along
Watching for you down the road

So come home running
His arms are open wide
His name is Jesus
He understands
He is the answer
You are looking for
So come home running
Just as you are

Oh child of God so dearly loved
And ransomed by the Savior's blood
And called by name, Daughter and Son
Wrapped in the robe of righteousness- Chris Tomlin

lately i've been hearing this song quite often. it's either through the blastings of ivan's mp3 or the computer. but i love it!

though the meaning of this song is pretty obvious, the words signifies many of us today. this song is bout eveyone who has gone astray at least once in their life from God. be it yesterday, today or tomorrow. verses one and two tells of us being away from He who's always there, who's always faithful. the third verse also tells of our identity, of who we are, children of the King who were bought with a price, the blood of Christ so that we may experience God's love without barriers of our sins.

the chorus is the one that hits me most. the fact that we ran or is running away from God doesn't bar us from turning back. He is ever ready, waiting for us to come home (His arms are open wide). He doesn't only understand and forgive us for straying but He is also the answer that everyone's searching earnestly in this life = salvation. that void in this aimless world is the question and salvation is the answer and salvation is Christ.

i like this last part the best. it says "so come home running just as you are." what an awesome God we serve! we can actually turn back to Him just as we are! note how it doesn't say "so come home running, after you repent/accept the punishments set/have done a makeover/finish rehab." even if have made the silliest or most shameful or most degrading thing, there's still a 'home' with doors open wide waiting for us. God's ever forgiving and this is just one of the many ways He demonstrates His agape love to us.

i'm here for you

second day into my 5th sem. should have learnt from the past that first classes are not worth coming for. today's class only took 30minutes! it was supposed to end at 12 instead at 9.30 we were already done. gah!

i must admit that the emails from u guys in London are really encouraging. not to mention also a constant reminder that God's always around even when u dont realise it. He sends people to always be around, to love and to care, to support and to uplift, like what He has commanded all His children to be. to spur one another. it always excites when i receive mails from fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. i love u guys all more than anything else and am so blessed to have u guys called my friends. =)

went midvalley on tuesday. watched resident evil. comment: EVIL! no kidding. well at least for a few of us it is. haha. practically throughout the whole movie my fingers were busy...they were stuffed into my ears and to cover my eyes. lol. its full of shocking/terperanjat-ing scenes and not even 5minutes into it, i was shocked twice. arrgh..never gonna trust ivan's choice anymore.

i'm hungry.

time is ticking

so here goes another week.

it often surprises me how each week seem to slip pass, often without me even noticing. well i guess that's life. there's no turning back. and that gives it all the more meaning to live and by that i mean live with a Purpose.

but just by looking at myself i wonder how i can even say that since i dont walk the talk. heh. i'm one aimless and ambitionless person you'll be shocked to have known. no kidding. most of the time i just dont seem to grasp the plans that God has made for me and just go with the flow. i've tried but it's not as easy as it seems. i'm still asking in what area has He assigned me to and meanwhile serve as much as i can. however, i'm never worried as i know His timing is always right. when He thinks you're prepared, He'll give it to you.

Trust is a big word for me in my walk with God. this is the word that i try very hard to apply in my life and every time i do, the result of it is my reward. =) the more i trust in Him, the more i gain. yes, the results may not always turn out the way i want it to be but there's always something behind that consequence that'll surprise me. i know i and many others often quote this verse but it speaks alot.
Trust the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

what's left behind me

yuhoo..... been a while since i last used that word. well, well...looks like my posts have found themselves a new 'home'. yup i've officially moved or berhijrah (migrated) as sarah calls it, to blogspot. =)

spent the whole morning replying emails and relisting items for my mum in haha.

i've entered into the 2nd week of my break and i still dont know how the 1st week went past...maybe because i was in dreamland most of the time. waking up at 12pm means throwing away half of the day without being useful =p.

oh well....i've got nth interesting to say at this moment so i guess i'll have to sign out or else i'll be talking crap and wasting your precious time. hehe.
