Little Gestures of Love

I was always afraid to hear the end times
I am not proud of what I have carried out
but knowing i have salvation from Christ
I am going to be alright because He’s love

The good news is He is patient and kind
a knock of comfort in my heart arrived
comfort said “love, you still have a chance”
I am going to be alright because He’s love

I have given a friend a hug right now
I called my mom to hear my voice say “hi”
I gave someone food without being asked
I visited prisoners to preach Christ

I packed extra food to share with someone
I hugged her instead of waving goodbye
I secretly prayed strength for his trials
I gave water to a weary homeless man

At the end of the day it will all clump up
Time is wealth but there’s no need to rush
realise now gestures don’t have to be grand
Little gestures of love is always significant

Be Patient

When I look at my past
all I can see is wrath
all I can see is dark
Oh for who’s fault but mine?

I write my heartaches
and burst out my anger
the dangers of rage
Oh when will I be patient?

When I look at me now
my heart is still undone
Oh when will i run back
like the prodigal son?

Silent at this moment
A whisper from heaven came
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
In your affliction, be patient

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

Heart starts to beat louder
From the heavens,
A gushing flame of fire
Behold, reap the harvest

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

Stand firm on your faith
Know that I am able
In your life, it will be evident
the prophecy, always remember

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

In your affliction, be patient
In your test, be patient
In your challenges, be patient
But in everything, pray

~ M. Salonga

Anchored

I have been tossed by the waves of emotions to and fro
I was lost in the sea of confusions and the unknown
In the life of fear, I have made horrible decisions
The tears that was shed, grieved for the sake of my own soul

Hear my mourning for I need a champion out of Sodom
Blinded by my own depression hoping for tomorrow
I offer this empty life for im nothing and alone
Going back to the source of salvation and redemption

In my anguish and cries, the heavens responded a roar
the champion of heavens rescued me out in the lowest point
From resuscitation to redemption, one, two, three, four
A new heart started beating, A new heart has been bestowed

As I get up on my feet, I did blow the loudest horn
I could see it coming down, my own walls of Jericho
All I could see, unending opportunities and hope
To my champion, I will remain and strongly anchored

For my champion listened and responded with action
For he loved me in my darkest and lowest and gave his all
For he swam down the confusions and showed his favour
To my champion, I will remain and strongly anchored
