Alabaster Jar

The first time I heard this song, its lyrics expressed what was in my heart and I connected with it immediately. On 20 Feb 2013, I was doing a 2-hour prayer watch at a prayer room in Singapore. This song came and it was a moment of renewing my love to the Lord for the year 2013. Thought I’ll share the live recording of this song at that moment in the prayer room and perhaps some of you may be led to renew your life to the Lord for 2013.

This alabaster jar is all I have of worth
I break it at Your feet, Lord
It’s less than You deserve
You’re far more beautiful
More precious than the oil
The sum of my desires & the fullness of my joy!

Like You spilled Your blood,
I spill my heart as an offering to my King

Here I am, take me as an offering
Here I am, giving every heartbeat
For Your glory take me

The time that I have left is all I have of worth
I lay it at Your feet, Lord
It’s less than You deserve
And though I’ve little strength
And though my days are few,
You gave Your life for me
So, I will live my life for You

Worthy, Worthy, You are worthy
Worthy is the Lord
Holy, Holy, You are holy
Holy is the Lord
Glory, Glory, You are glory
Glory is the Lord

Chinese New Year Walk

On the second day of 2013 Chinese New Year, I decided to take a walk along the Park Connector Network along the Kallang River. It was a cloudy and windy day, perfect for long walks! Love seeing the little birds fly by and so elegantly dip into the waters for a refreshing sip. The small ripples of water and the beautiful skies and clouds enlarge something intangible and unexplainable within. A sudden dawning that I have not stopped to smell the flowers for a while. It is perhaps not wrong to conclude that all human needs a little glimpse of beauty periodically for refreshment. Perhaps a reminder of the glory of our Creator that we lose sight so easily.
