O draw me, O draw me away Messiah today

It’s interesting that just the day before Marked Camp, I met up with Pastor CK and we were talking about how the single/attached status is over emphasized in church (in CHC definitely where people are encouraged to get married young, a lot get married before they turn 24, and in GenRev too, but Pastor Benjamin has since cleared that up during camp) and how an intimate relationship with Jesus should be #1 and most emphasized instead. And he just really confirmed some of the things I’ve been feeling lately - to enjoy the ‘single’ season without feeling the pressure to get attached (not really from the friends, more from the parents and grandma), to focus on building an intimate relationship with Jesus, build godly friendships, especially with girl friends (yes, he emphasized it again, but now I do have more girl friends than guy friends :D), establish career, go travel and see the world. It’s not that I’m not open if Jesus decides that now is the right time and season for a relationship but I’m completely happy/content right where I am, without any relationship commitments, having freedom to do what I want to do, and most importantly, having the luxury of time to really get intimate with Jesus and to be involved in ministry. It’s not that all these are not possible once someone is in a relationship, it’s just that it may be a bit more challenging to find the time and resources. And I feel that whichever season someone is in, whether it’s single, attached or married, it’s important to have a personal relationship with the Lord, to always draw from Him.


Song of Solomon 1:2, 4

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth - For your love is better than wine… …Draw me away! 

Thinking back on the women’s session this year, the verse shared (above) just reminded me of this song that was sung way back in CHC. It’s an awesome worship song that I used to play over and over again, forgot about it for a while, but really, in this season, "O draw me, O draw me away Messiah today to Your presence to stay" 

The most epic romance is the one with Jesus.

Once I have turned my face from Thee 
Yet You sought me You cleansed me 
Made me whole again 
Jesus my Savior, my Beloved and Friend 
Your praises I bring 
From my heart I sing
 

O draw me, O draw me away Messiah today To Your presence to stay 
O Jesus now change me 
And mould me 
That I can be 
Evermore true to Thee

You are the Shepherd of my heart
You have brought me to Your chamber
My Master and King

You light up my darkness

And gave me Your word
That You’ll never forsake me
Nor no ever will leave me

My foes are many, they rise against me
But I will hold my ground
I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm
My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

Troubles surround me, chaos abounding
My soul will rest in You
I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm
My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
From You Lord, from You Lord

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always, always

Miracle Seed Sundays

One thing I really love about these past 3 Sundays is how Pst Prince would stay on aft svc ends & lead worship (in place of the usual walkout song by the band), and he doesn’t do it all that often nowadays.. There’s this really epic anointing when he leads us in worship, just super super blessed! Our worship team is AMAZING, but when pastor leads, it’s a whole other level!

Verse 1:
There is a song in every silence
There is a dawn in every darkness
There is a hope in every pain

There is a spring in every winter
Even in doubt there is believing
Through every season You are near
Verse 2: 
You satisfy our deepest hunger
You broke the bond and set us free
You gave us life eternally

Jesus the name that calms our fears
Only in You our sorrows cease
Your love has won and now we see

Chorus: 
Oh Your favor and Your grace Lord
Last a lifetime
Last a lifetime

Vamp:
Hallelujah
You are faithful
You are faithful

Love this! We sang it at CG last night. Sweet moments with Jesus. 

Jesus loves me. 

Easter is about the greatest love of all.

Matthew 28:20
And be sure of this:
I am with you always.

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
He’ll walk on water, to save you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see
He’ll be the light to guide you

You know He can be trusted
Cos He has said “I am with you always”!

[Chorus]
You can count on Him like 1, 2, 3
He’ll be there
You know when you most need it
You can count on Him like 4, 3, 2
And He’ll be there
‘cause that’s what God has promised us oh yeah
ooooooh, oooohhh yeah yeah
[Verse 2]
If you’re tossin’ and you’re turnin
and you just can’t fall asleep
He’ll sing a song beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to Him
Every day He will remind you
You know He can be trusted
Cos He has said “I am with you always”!

[Chorus]
You can count on Him like 1, 2, 3
He’ll be there
You know when you most need it
You can count on Him like 4, 3, 2
And He’ll be there
‘cause that’s what God has promised us oh yeah
ooooooh, oooohhh yeah yeah
You’ll always have His shoulder when you cry
He’ll never let go
Never say goodbye
[Chorus]
You know you can count on Him like 1, 2, 3
He’ll be there
You know when you most need it
You can count on Him like 4, 3, 2
And He’ll be there
‘cause that’s what God has promised us oh yeah
ooooooh, oooohhh

Living, He loved me
Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day

I’m soooooo undeservedly, unreservedly blessed because His open arms held NOTHING back.

Even though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle
Of the storms of this life
I won’t turn back, I know You are near

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

And I can see a light that is coming
For the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We’ll live to know You here on the earth

Yes, I can see a light that is coming
For the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You
Still I will praise You
