SAVING GRACE by Hillsong

“Saving Grace”

[Verse 1]
Night and day I seek Your face
Long for You in the secret place
All I want in this life
Is to truly know you more…[Verse 2]
As the waters cover the sea,
So Your love covers me
Guiding me on,
Roads unknown
I trust in You alone [2x]

My Saving Grace
My endless love
Deeper and deeper I’m falling in love with You
My one desire
My only truth
Deeper and deeper I’m falling in love with you

[Verse 2]


with you..
fallin’ in love with you…

And I will rise on wings of eagles
Soaring high above all my fears
I rest in Your open arms of love


As the waters cover the sea
So your love covers me….
covers me…

If there is one thing that is really important in life, that’s knowing who God is and what His plans are for us. The greatest of all is love, but not all people seemed to understand what love really is.

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. GOD IS LOVE. Whoever lives in love lives in God and God in them.

This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgement: In this world we are like Jesus.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

-1 John 4:16-18 (NIV)

This song clearly reminds me how wide His love is for us. NO time can ever measure the lengths of His love. It transcends even in thousands of generations.

So what do we have to do?

Love is already given by God to us. It is given, yes. But without you accepting it, the process of giving is incomplete.

To feel the love of God, one must accept Him as his Lord and Savior. Let’s face it. This world is really fearful. There are just too many evil things in this world that if you let yourself unguarded, you’ll be lost and fell astray.

Fear will start to creep in. Heaven is real. BUT Hell is also real. And life? It’s a choice. No matter what you say. IT IS A CHOICE. there’s no such thing as “there’s no choice” because life always gives you numerous choices but the choice you chose was the only thing you saw which made you think that it was the only choice.


CHOOSING GOD MEANS CHOOSING LIFE. Not just a life but a good life, a real life, a well and satisfied life.


We are humans who are made to love. What’s so hard in loving? We’re innate to that. It’s just that we are blinded by so many things that we thought love is not free.

Remember that whatever you are facing right now, God’s love and mercy is always the way out. However, don’t take advantage of His love. Still, God is the God of Judgement. He is a God of Law. He punishes who is meant to be punished but blesses more who is meant to be blessed.

So if your problems are greater than the multitudes and wider than the sea. God’s hands are still bigger.



God bless 🙂


A Little Braver by New Empires

Verse 1

With December comes the glimmer on her face

And I get a bit nervous

I get a bit nervous now

In the twelve months on I won’t make friends with change

When everyone’s perfect, can we start over again

The playgrounds, they get rusty and your

heartbeats another ten thousand times before

I got the chance to say

I miss you


When it gets hard

I gt a little stronger now

I get a little braver now

When it gets dark

I get a little brighter now

I get a little wiser

Before I give my heart away

Verse 2

Well we met each other at the house of runaways

I remember it perfectly

We were running on honesty

We moved together like a silver lock and key

But now that your lock has changed

I know I can’t fit that way

The playgrounds, they get rusty and your

heart beats another ten thousand times before

I got the chance to say

I want you


When it gets hard

I gt a little stronger now

I get a little braver now

When it gets dark

I get a little brighter now

I get a little wiser

Before I give my heart away

Song Analysis:

A Little Braver

It’s not every day that we get to see how we are tested with our strength and our willingness to go on. But once we are, it’s really hard to move on. With the mixture of sophistication and calming effect of this song, I got to realize how to remain strong even after all the hardships.

Yes, love is one of the most beautiful things in this world. But it seemed that this beautiful thing, when once wronged by the beholder, it can hurt anyone without even knowing. They say that pain is a twin of love. Is it really? Perhaps, yes.

At first, it started with a gloomy tone, saying how the persona is being nervous with the face being shown by his girlfriend. He hoped that they could start over again. However, for him, he knew it will be impossible because “everyone can’t be perfect”. He knew from the very beginning of his hope, they could never start again what has been finished now. But for another year, he’s willing to wait. It can really get hard. To wait for nothing, to hope for nothing, and to even think of the love that was now nothing.

However, with each passing day, he reminisced how the relationship was perfect. With trust, with happiness, with honesty. They were once perfectly fitted for each other. But just like how some believed, human feelings are not constant. The girl chose to throw away the lock where he fitted the most and changed it. Now he can’t fit to it anymore.

Nevertheless, in spite of all those pains, some may think that it’s too late for them to even start over again, but for him, it’s never too late to start over again…to start new for himself.

So he got a move on. Just like how the playgrounds get rusty as time passes by, and how he missed and wanted her even after ten thousand heart beats, he knew that he should also move on with time. He knew he shouldn’t be left out.

It was hard but for every hardships, for every pain felt deep in his heart, he learned to use it to make him strong, to make him braver. Some may feel that once they’ve been deceived by the one he/she loves, they will be hurt once again if they love again. So they will be afraid to invest feelings for someone who recently came. But there’s no rule in love wherein it prohibits anyone to love again just because they got hurt. There’s no rule saying that if you got hurt once, it will be the same all over the lifetime. He knew this. He knew this all. So instead of locking himself up in the dark past, he chose to shine and conquer the darkness. And in every step he chose, he gets wiser.

A lesson remained in him. It’s not about being afraid to love again. It’s not about staying in the past. It’s not about hurting yourself over and over again. It is about how to choose right before giving your heart away. Since love is not something to be taken lightly. It is supposed to be something that lightens you when taken.

So if you are afraid to take the risk of loving again, don’t. Just be strong. Be brave. Be bright. And be wise. Love takes time. It can even take turns before it gets to you. But don’t stop. Don’t remain in the bitter past. Learn how to accept it with a smile. So cry for a while then take a step forward. It is always never too late since there is always time for love.
