I wander in this world
I have not been as faithful as I should have been
I live my life not minding where my soul will go
When time is up for me
I go on and I pretend
To be the faithful one
Yet I know that deep within
I am a sinful being and have neglected my religious duty
Yet God, the kind father that he is, still showers me His blessings
He still listens to me, hear my prayers
Despite me not taking much time to spend with Him
He sends His message through
He calls out to me and makes me feel loved
The kind of love no one else can give
My soul wanders through this world
And He waits for me to come back
To come home to Him at last
Is God still showing me love
As He looks down from above?
He silently sheds a tear
as He longs to be near.
To be His child is my true calling,
So why am I continually falling?
The Sinner’s eternally cry,
For their broken wings just cannot fly.
Now I long to change…that’s what I say,
But why is it that I won’t pray?
What is it going to take
To finally make me break?
Where is that longing fire
That showed my true hearts desire?
What will be the final cost
If I forever am lost?
I still am crying out to be free,
But is this my hearts true plea?
I have it all right in front of me,
Still my covered eyes cannot see.

Every night before I sleep
I look up to the Heavens and try not to weep.
For my heart is full
with the Lords will,
My strength, my health & pockets full.
He has blessed me every day
Since birth till today.
Thank you Lord
cause now I can afford,
to testify and praise you
Precious, love and True-

The Earth shook me
Almost threw me aside
My life did not flash before my eyes
But it was then that I realized I may not make it.
However, the Lord did plan it that way
He made me realize my existence
and that I need to keep my faith
I am not afraid for I know You are with me
You had to shake the Earth for me to take notice
But I hear you
Loud and clear
***Please pray for the people in Bohol, Philippines, they badly need it. We here in Cebu are under a state of calamity but those in Bohol have been affected the most. Thanks in advance for all your prayers.
Until the end of the day, I sit and pray
Looking towards the heaven, looking toward that day.
The day when life will unfold it’s plan
To a needy young man trying to make it through this land.
Had dreams of wealth, happiness galore
But only received nightmares, Lord I can’t take any more.
Please lead me to that path that You have set for me
My patience is running short. Where do you want me to be?
I know I am one of your angels, one without the wings
I try to be kind and peaceful, bring to people wonderful things.
But I feel more hurt that happiness, tears continue to flow
I see so much more with my life, but things are happening slow.
So I ask you, Father, please show me your full grace
Because I am tired of hiding my smile underneath the pain on this face

As I search for your Saving grace,
I know one day I’ll see your face.
Waiting is the hardest thing for me,
I know with you I will be so free.
You take me up and lay me back down,
I know with you I am and will be found.
I seek you each day and seek your name,
I am nothing without you or your Fame.
Waking with you, you give me power,
To make it another day and another hour.
Learning your word is oh so smart,
I love you Lord with all my heart.
You gave up for me all your life,
We could not stop all the strife.
Everyday I will always say,
I long to return to you one day.
Love me Lord and keep me strong,
Without you I can never get alone.
So hear my prayers as bring me peace,
My sins Oh Lord will slowly cease.
My heart is heavy and I am weak,
Your love is strong as you speak.
Keep me safe at comforts arms,
Give me grace without any harm.
Give me eternity and take me home,
That day I will never be alone.

I bow to the moon, the sun and the stars
To the sky, the clouds and the heavens
I bow to the rivers, the sea and the mighty ocean
To the rain and the lightning and the thunderstorms
To the creatures that fly, to the ones that crawl
to the ones we misunderstand and the ones yet unknown
All of these majestic things created by God
I bow to them all
many thought it magic when the clouds poured out rain
when the wind sang a song
when the birds built their homes
but I knew…
like you and I they were made by an Almighty being
and did not come out of thin air
A speck, like a dust
Out of focus
These are a few of the things that I am
Shinning like the stars
This is what I am at times
….the greatest gift
To my God I am not nothing
I am not just a speck
I am not a blur or unimportant
For I am everything to Him
at the break of dawn I whisked away
into that midnight sky
to meet and greet such a glorious day
and leave the lonely one behind
I took comfort on the clouds
and lay there waiting for the sun
while the people of Earth lay sleeping
dreaming of countless things
I waited for it to rise
for I wanted to be the first to say,
“The Lord has risen! Let us rejoice!”
