I’ll Be There

I have no idea where this song came from, all of a sudden playing in my head. This timeless piece by the Jackson 5 speaks volume and I couldn’t help but allow myself be serenaded by it. Yes yes i really hope to sing it to someone someday.

You and I must make a pact,
We must bring salvation back
Where there is love,
I’ll be there (I’ll be there…)

I’ll reach out my hand to you, I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I’ll be there
(I’ll be there…)

Chorus:
And oh – I’ll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you,
I’m so glad that I found you
I’ll be there with a love that’s strong
I’ll be your strength, I’ll keep holding on –
(Yes I will, yes I will)

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that’s all I’m after
Whenever you need me, I’ll be there
I’ll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love I respect you
Just call my name and I’ll be there

(Chorus)

If you should ever find someone new,
I know he’d better be good to you
‘Cos if he doesn’t, I’ll be there
(I’ll be there…)

Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah
I’ll be there, I’ll be there, just call my name, I’ll be there
(I’ll be there…)

(Just look over your shoulders, honey – ooh)

I’ll be there, I’ll be there, whenever you need me, I’ll be there

Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah

#NP Glee Cast – Somebody To Love

Listened to this song today after a long while. Used to top my playlist.Didn’t realize it had that much effect on me. I love it. As usual, Cory Monteith‘s sonorous voice stood out for me. RIP.

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
Take a look in the mirror and cry
Lord what you’re doing to me
I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just can’t get no relief, Lord!

Somebody, somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I work hard every day of my life
I work till I ache my bones
At the end I take home my hard earned pay all on my own –
I get down on my knees
And I start to pray
Till the tears run down from my eyes
Lord – somebody – somebody
Can anybody find me – somebody to love?

(He works hard)

Everyday – I try and I try and I try –
But everybody wants to put me down
They say I’m goin’ crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
Got no common sense
I got nobody left to believe
Yeah – yeah yeah yeah

Oh Lord
Somebody – somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat
I’m ok, I’m alright
Ain’t gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
Someday I’m gonna be free, Lord!

Find me somebody to love
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

#NP Brooke Fraser – Shadowfeet

There’s something about this song.

Walking, stumbling on these shadow feet
Toward home, a land that Ive never seen
I am changing, less and less asleep
Made of different stuff than when I began

And I have sensed it all along
Fast approaching is the day

When the world has fallen out from under me
Ill be found in You, still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
When time and space are through, Ill be found in You

Theres distraction buzzing in my head
Saying in the shadows its easier to stay
But Ive heard rumors of true reality
Whispers of a well-lit way

When the world has fallen out from under me
Ill be found in You, still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
When time and space are through, Ill be found in You

You make all things new, you make all things new
You make all things new, you make all things
You make all things

When the world has fallen out from under me
Ill be found in you, still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
When time and space are through, Ill be found in You

When the world has fallen out from under me
Ill be found in you, still standing
Every fear and accusation under my feet
When time and space are through, Ill be found in You
When time and space are through, Ill be found in You
When time and space are through, Ill be found in You

#NP Tenth Avenue North – Love Is Here

Very deep song!

Come to the waters, you who thirst and you’ll thirst no more.
Come to the father, you who work and you’ll work no more.
And all you who labor in vain and to the broken and shamed:

Love is here.
Love is now.
Love is pouring from
His hands, from his brows.
Love is near, it satisfies.
Streams of mercy flowing from his side.
Cuz love is here.

Come to the treasure, you who search and you’ll search no more.
Come to the lover you who want and you’ll want no more, no.
And all you who labor in vain and to the broken and shamed,

Yeah:

Love is here.
Love is now.
Love is pouring from his hands, from his brows.
Love is near, it satisfies.
Streams of mercy flowing from his side.

Yeah

And to the bruised and fallen,
Captives, bound, and broken hearted.

He is the lord
He is the lord,
Yeah

By his stripes he’s paid our ransom
From his wounds we drink salvation

He is the lord
He is the lord

Love is here.
Love is now.
Love is pouring from his hands, from his brows.
Love is near,
It satisfies.
Streams of mercy flowing from his side.
Streams of mercy flowing from his side.
Cuz love is here
Love is here.

#NP Darwin Hobbs – We Worship You Today

For a while now, this song has been playing in my head. As simple as it is, the lyrics has a way of speaking to me.

[Verse: Solo]
In humble adoration we bow before your throne
As we come before your presence we honour you alone
So we lift up our voices as trumpets heralding you
You are the king of glory so this is what we do

[Chorus:]
We worship you today [x4]

[Ad lib:]
Father how we love you today and we worship you just because of who you are
o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-h.

[Verse: Choir (Unison)]
In humble adoration we bow before your throne
As we come before your presence we honour you alone
So we lift up our voices as trumpets heralding you
You are the king of glory so this is what we do

[verse]

[Chorus: Harmony]
We worship you today [x8]
We honour you today [x8]
We love you today [x8]
We seek your face today
We need you today
Hosanna today [x2]
We seek your face today
We need you today
Hosanna today [x2]

[chorus]

 

Happy New Month guys!

Goals, Resolutions And All Other Things In Between.

Hi people!

Happy New Year!!!!!

I’m so psyched about 2014 because there’s so much I’m looking forward to! Geez! It’s gonna be a start of new things. So without much ado, I’ve decided to share some of my goals for the new year with y’all.

Be Inspired

I think the most important thing for me this year is to improve my relationship with God. Get closer to Him, study and Bible more, pray and whatnot. I also wish/hope I find a study buddy this year. Someone to follow through and put me in check. And no, I don’t want any one/group online.

Healthwise, I plan to actually start a work-out routine. I really don’t have problems with healthy eating. Junk food is a no-brainer and I can proudly say I’ve overcome my coke addiction.

School’s just gonna go on smoothly. I hope I can return to Alliance Francaise this year to bag another diploma.

My photography career/business/side hustle would also kick off in full force as soon as I get my DSLR. This year, I hope to take at least 10,000 photos, attend seminars/workshops and get as many internships as possible.

I also want to try as much as possible to acquire additional vocational skills. I hope my mother would finally accept and realise that there can never be too many MUAs in the business.

By the end of the year, I would have been 12months Post BC, 21months Post Relaxer. My hair goal is BSL or at least it should be able to be packed in a bun, healthy hair notwithstanding.

Hopefully, this year I can cross out most, if not all the things on my 21 list before my birthday.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this year I want a getaway from my house. I sort of need space and since I go to school from home, this is kind of a ”luxury”. I hope I find somewhere to elope to.

Blog-wise, I hope to be as consistent as the previous year and even better. Maybe I’ll finally get around to improving the appearance and personalising it more.

For now, I’ve decided not to visit Goodreads because I’ll probably be tempted to pick a random figure and set a reading goal. That didn’t really go well last year. So, this is me holding back until I’m sure I can lay my hands on paperbacks or hardcovers. Electronic reading isn’t really my forte……yet.

These amongst other things are my goals for 2014.

However, I’ve resolved to deal with my Social Media addiction. I think this is as a result of the fact that I have so much free time on my hands atm and suddenly movies and any other source of entertainment don’t appeal to me anymore. Well, hopefully this will change this year.

Have A Fabulous Year Ahead! I know I will.

Toodles!

#NP Breathe

This is what I’m currently listening to at the moment.
Breathe by Jane French. Love itttt!

I would hold the hand of the one who could lead me places
And kiss the lips of the one who could sing so sweet
And I would fly on a wings of a bird I knew could take me highest
Breathe in, breathe out
You keep me alive
You are the fire burning inside
Breathe in breathe out
You keep me alive
You are my fire, my passions for life

I would dance with the feet I knew could always follow
And take the road that had the straightest line
You do all of these things for me
You are all, and then some

Breathe in, breathe out
You keep me alive
You are the fire burning inside
Breathe in breathe out
You keep me alive
You are the fire burning inside of me
You are my passion for life

QOTD: On Friendships

“I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship,
it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and
let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be
distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take
them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that
holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.”
― Jon Katz

QOTD: The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-
centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends
and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest
ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top
dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you
do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
― Kent M. Keith
