A grateful heart

20110519-063628.jpg

I’m on the bus now heading to the hostel to visit the scholars…
And I was really just reflecting on my own attitudes, motivations and the like and needless to say, the report card came back with a “Jane has potential but she still have a whole lot of room for improvement”
But I’m kinda glad that it’s like that cause I will never be satisfied with where I am, never be satisfied with my relationship with God now that I’ll continuously seek to improve and draw closer to God!

And I’m really thankful to God for so many things…
He has never abandoned me nor withheld blessings from me.
And as I was reflecting, I turned to look out of the window of the bus and looked at the sky..
And then a thought struck me that all the nations of the world are under the same sky but all the nations are different, have different cultures, languages etc…
And it really reminded me of how God loves each and everyone of us and it also shows how creative God is!:)
One earth, so many varieties:)

So that’s all for now.
Gonna catch 40winks on the bus.
Hope I do well for my SOT exam tmr!!
Nervous much.

Love,
Jane

Music for the soul

disclaimer: all credits for the photos go to getty images.

i just happened to be thinking about stuff yesterday night after i got home from dance and there was this point in time when JT played the song two is better than one and we tried to fit our dance steps into it (quite funny! ) but the song really spoke to me cause the other day while i was having lunch with Veron, she did mention that she wanted to see me attached and that two is better than one..
and then when I heard the song, it led me to ponder..
and i came to this little conclusion what may seem super DUH to a lot of people..
I just kinda realised that songs really speak about my situations and emotions super aptly, better than even plain words can describe.

It really did occur to me then that music is really food for the soul and it was created by God for us to glorify Him but of course the devil took it and manipulated it to lead people astray but that is another topic i don’t really want to go into at the moment.
so anyway, I was just listening to a few songs and they really spoke to how I feel now.
So once again, I’m just here to share the songs that show how I feel:)

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought
“Hey, you know, this could be something”
‘Cause everything you do and words you say
You know that it all takes my breath away
And now I’m left with nothing

So maybe it’s true
That I can’t live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone
And I’m thinking two is better than one

I remember every look upon your face
The way you roll your eyes
The way you taste
You make it hard for breathing
‘Cause when I close my eyes and drift away
I think of you and everything’s okay
I’m finally now believing

That maybe it’s true
That I can’t live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone
And I’m thinking two is better than one

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought, “Hey,”

Maybe it’s true
That I can’t live without you
Maybe two is better than one
But there’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone
And I’m thinking
I can’t live without you
‘Cause, baby, two is better than one
But there’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
But I’ll figure it out
When all is said and done
Two is better than one
Two is better than one


i guess that’s pretty true isn’t it?
Even for Adam, God said that it wasn’t good for him to be alone.

Lyin’ here with you so close to me
It’s hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile

I’ve never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back when I’m holding you in my arms
We don’t need to rush this
Let’s just take this slow

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch in the fire burning so bright
And I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time
It will only bring us closer to the love we wanna find
It’s never felt so real, no it’s never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch in the fire burning so bright

And I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

No I don’t want to say goodnight
I know it’s time to leave, but you’ll be in my dreams
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch in the fire burning so bright
And I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, oh, let’s do this right, with just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight

jane

oh welll.

loved service today ❤

love,
jane

And I'm sitting on the bus, wishing you were right here next to me…

i think a girl’s worst nightmare is when the guy she likes treats her like a sister…
isn’t it so?

ok or maybe even worse… when he doesnt even want to get close to her.
hmm..

love,
jane

i bet you forgot the one thing i asked of you.oh well.

I saw you today and my heart skipped a beat.
But seeing you is really not enough…
It’ll probably never ever be enough…

these are the days when i sit in bed, listen to soothing songs, songs like the songs from Kari Jobe where I just sit in the presence of God and think..
think of everything and lift it up unto the Lord.. cause He is my shepherd and help.
i thought that i’d be ok with not seeing you for so long,
that maybe the feelings would fade and it would just be another false alarm, another infatuation..
but just catching a glimpse of you today proved me wrong..
it proved me oh so wrong..

and here’s another thank you to Mr George Yeo, who has gained my respect. I cried when he lost yesterday and when he made his speech. The speech that was full of graciousness. but unlike the times when I cried for others.. this time it was worth it. Because Mr George Yeo is a minister who is worth my tears.
and I know God will use him in a greater way.
I just know.

love,
jane

Everyone needs a little

Everyone Needs A Little Lyrics
Come all ye weary and ye broken
Come to the table of the Lord
Come sing the song of the forgiven
Come lay your burden on the word

Come and find peace
Everyone needs a little rest
Everyone needs a little joy
And a song to sing in the darkest night

And life even when it gets you down
Hope will turn it all around
But love is the greatest of these
Everyone needs a little

Sing all ye saints and ye sinners
Call upon the mercy of the Lord
Come sing the song of redemption
Sing about the hope that is to come

Come and find peace
Everyone needs a little rest
Everyone needs a little joy
And a song to sing in the darkest night

And life even when it gets you down
Hope will turn it all around
But love is the greatest of these
Everyone needs a little

He will lift you up
He will lift you up higher than sorrow
He will lift you up
And cover your soul with healing

Come and find peace
Everyone needs a little rest
Everyone needs a little joy
And a song to sing in the darkest night

And life even when it gets you down
Hope will turn it all around
But love is the greatest of these
Everyone needs a little

Peace
Everyone needs a little rest
Everyone needs a little joy
And a song to sing in the darkest night

And life even when it gets you down
Hope will turn it all around
But love is the greatest of these
Everyone needs a little
Everyone needs a little
Everyone needs a little

I hope this touches you as much as it touched me..

love,
jane
