So will I – Hillsong

VERSE 1
God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light

CHORUS 1
And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapour of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I

VERSE 2
God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice

CHORUS 2
And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I

BRIDGE
If the stars were made to worship so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high so will I
If the wind goes where You send it so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times

VERSE 3
God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride
On a hill You created
The light of the world
Abandoned in darkness to die

CHORUS 3
And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done
Every part designed in a work of art called love
If You gladly chose surrender so will I
I can see Your heart
Eight billion different ways
Every precious one
A child You died to save
If You gave Your life to love them so will I

TAG
Like You would again a hundred billion times
But what measure could amount to Your desire
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind

A Diary of a Chik

So I made a huge decision by resigning from one of my jobs! This has obviously sent shock waves across the family questioning my sanity so let me tell you why…

You have ONE life. In that one life you spend years in school. School turns into college. College turns into uni/work. Either way, you eventually end up working 5 days a week in a job you complain about all the time waiting for the weekend which then flies by.

You get out what you put in and I couldn’t support that saying more! My problem however, is that I’ll spend 50-80 hours a week working really hard (normally for someone else) and making myself ill because I’m always trying to push myself to achieve more. Once I get ill though, I can’t do anything and what’s the point in that?!

This summer, I want to work on my business…

If you are contemplating studying nursing at university, or if you are already a student nurse, then Bev and Nicki’s new vlog will give you the helping hand you need to see how other student nurses handle the stresses and pressures of this course. With their very unique approach, the two girls have set up a vlog filled with helpful information and guidance, as well as lots of humour (and dancing)!

No matter what your stage of study, these girls are offering their honest insight into the world of nursing and its ever-changing challenges.

We caught up with the girls to ask them a couple of questions about their course and their new vlog project.

What inspired you to do nursing?

For me, it was the broad possibilities of different types of nursing that attracted me to do adult nursing in particular. This career path means I can travel and…

You Love My Flaws, They make me Beautiful

“Flaws”

Sometimes I talk a little too much
Don’t listen enough
Sometimes it’s way too easy for me to beat myself up
Sometimes I hate the way I look when I look in the mirror
One look from you I know

My flaws
You love, you love my flaws
Think they make me beautiful
You don’t see them as flaws at all
That’s why
That’s why, that’s why I love you
Cause you are, you are the one who
The one who loves my flaws

Sometimes I get a little unsure
A lot insecure
Sometimes I know I might say some words
That might cause some hurt
Sometimes I get in my own way
I’m way too much to put up with
But you put up with it all

My flaws
You love, you love my flaws
Think they make me beautiful
You don’t see them as flaws at all
That’s why
That’s why, that’s why I love you
Cause you are, you are the one who
The one who loves my flaws

You think I’m everything when I think I’m nothing
When I hate myself you still love me
Love me and

My flaws
You love, you love my flaws
Think they make me beautiful
You don’t see them as flaws at all

Oh God
You love, you love my flaws
Think they make me beautiful
You don’t see them as flaws at all
That’s why
That’s why, that’s why I love you
Cause I love, I love the one who
The one who loves my flaws

My flaws
You love, you love my flaws

The Faith I walk and live by

Not because I am perfect but because He is perfect for me

Its not because I love Him but because He first loved me

He first chose me,

Loved me

Knitted me in my mother’s womb

and continues to bless me each and every day

Even though I continue to fail Him day by day

and its not because of who I am but because of who He is

Forgiveness

I have to admit that even with all that I know is right and what the Bible says. Forgiveness was one of the hardest concepts for me to grasp.

But we are of a sinful nature naturally, not because of God’s design but because of the Fall in Eden. Therefore this concept seems a lot more difficult for each one of us. I had a really hard time trying to grasp this because i suppose i didn’t read and understand the true sacrifice Jesus gave on the cross. God’s forgiveness of my sins lead to my redemption. 

We spend a lot of time holding grudges, fighting, hating each other and what i realized and learnt fairly quickly is that these feuds can be found between friends which is fair enough, but the worst of them come from families. The devil has infiltrated our homes and our families and is attacking us from within starting with our families. And we let him because don’t cling to the cross daily, enough for God to heal us and those around us. It took me a long time to understand that forgiveness is not about the other person but it reflects your relationship with the God you claim to serve. God loves and forgives us on a daily basis if not hourly because we are constantly failing Him but the Word of God days, ‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.’ – 1 John 1:9. Forgiving someone else for their wrong is not for their benefit, it is for yours. Someone once told me that it is the same as drinking poison and expect the other person to die. By holding grudges you are carrying an unnecessary weight that God is constantly telling you to give up and let Him take care of it.The closer we come to Christ the more you realize how sinful you are as a person. I know my faults and I pray that God continues to guide me and show me each one of my mistakes that i may overlook for any reasons in order for me to correct them. And i also pray to forgive as much as i have been forgiven.
