To Whom It May Concern

I can see the hurt in your eyes
Burnt into your life by all those cutting lies
Every wound pouring a crimson flood,
Unconstrained, unrestricted, unchecked, flowing at will
When darkness, fear and worry, is everything you see,
And you feel like there is no where, no where to flee.
When you're on the verge of giving up,
When the battle feels like it has been lost
Fear not, for these things will pass,
He is waiting for you with open arms,
He is waiting and wanting you to run to Him.
And once He's got you, He'll never let you go
Do not be afraid of the things to pass,
He's got everything under control
Be assured that He cares about YOU,
He cares about you...one in 6 000 000 000 people.
Most of all, you are LOVED.
So don't let all these things distract you from who He meant YOU to be.
It's no mistake things happen to you,
He has planned everything out to a T.
Though you can't see the bigger plan,
It doesn't mean He's got no plan
So are you will to let everything go,
Let your worries fall,
Set them in a pyre, and light the fire.
Cast your cares away,
And in this absence, healing is to be found.

Early morning ramblings, to Ally Friesen

Recurring nightmares of that day never cease to remind me.
What do I have my hope in?
who do I have my hope in?
These unfeeling walls do nothing to comfort me
Cold and calm.
Did your life flash before your eyes?
What did you think in that last second?
Nothing answers back as your body lay broken
Things are going black as your eyes start closing

I see you in the fields with your beautiful hair flowing
Singing to the One who took you home.
You’re free, free from all these burdens.
You can finally spread your wings and fly.
Green grass and trees surround you
Warm sunlight and a gentle summer breeze
Carefree and weightless you’re running,
Laughing and screaming, over flowing with joy.
You turn and look at me, telling me it’s ok
Staring into my soul as you say, “One day you’ll be home too…”

So I hold on to Jesus as the dream fades
I’ll never forget what happened that day.
Your whisper never leaves my soul.
The invisible Father, calling me home,
I can’t wait till the day that we once meet again.
Together with Jesus, at this marvellous feast.
You’ll probably be cooking, smiling as you do.
Until then, I will be remembering you,
Trusting in God that He has a plan,
And that he’s strong enough to do it.

Storm clouds rise and rainfall comes
Ocean waves come crashing down.
Bright calm days turn monstrous and unclear
Still God is there and carrying me through.
Still God is there and holding me up
Still God is there and giving me peace.
Still God is there.
Still, God is there.

Moses Yu - Smile

To Alexandra Nicole Friesen
April 13, 1994 - August 17, 2011
I miss you a lot, so I wrote this song with you in mind, and when I get to see you again.

I know that I'll be thinking about
The way you used to say hello
The way your hair fell into your face.
You know I'll miss your laugh the most,
The way your smile lit up a room
The way you told me to...

Smile, when the world comes crashing down
I'll pick you up again, I'll be there right beside you.
We laughed till we cried, 
Talked late into the night
You're gone but someday,
I'll see you again.

So many questions left unanswered
And things we'll never understand
But even then Your promises ring true.
Cause when these things just turn out wrong
The darkness comes the light is gone
i know there's still a reason to...

Smile, when the world comes crashing down
I'll pick you up again,
I'll be there right beside you.
We laughed till we cried, 
Talked late into the night
You're gone but someday,
I'll see you again.

It's not easy try'na look on the bright side
I know there's gonna be hope
There's gonna be a new life
Your face forever etched in my memory
Until we meet again, I'll remember what you said...

Smile, when the world comes crashing down
I'll pick you up again,
I'll be there right beside you.
We laughed till we cried, 
Talked late into the night
You're gone but someday,
I'll see you again.

...you were one of my best friends and you always, always made me smile. This song's for you.

You Just Gotta Know

Sometimes I hate the man in the mirror
Cuz I know he's a liar and a cheater and a killer
People say they love him but they love what he can give 'em,
But deep inside he knows that there's a reason for him livin' - LeCrae

Christmas Should be Everday

'Christmas should be everyday'. I think it's a good thing we don't know when Jesus' birth actually was, otherwise, we'd lose the reason of why we celebrate what we call Christmas. We'd be celebrating His birth (which isn't bad), but only just His birth, and not the WHY of His birth. We'd celebrate the WHAT, but forget the WHY. Each and everyday should be a reminder and a celebration of what He's given to us. Life, His Love, His freedom, and unending mercy and grace. He's given us a gift every day, and we need to accept it, just like if we got presents everyday. Therefore, Christmas IS EVERY DAY. =)

God is Faithful

Again you see those dark rain clouds
They bring you nothing but pain
It’s almost as they’re going to smother you,
But there’s always someone to pull you through.

All around you the fog closes in,
The brightness of the light, covered
Yet that light has never left you,
And it’s always there, thought it may be hard to see.

Blue skies are always there
The sun never stops its glowing
Though it may seem that all good has disappeared
God’s faithfulness is always there

No darkness can hide it,
No storm can overcome it
No sin can conquer it,
And death itself could not stop it.

Surely as the new day comes again
God is faithful.
