Oceans Will Part

If my heart has grown cold
There Your love will unfold
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

When I'm blind to my way
There Your Spirit will pray
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

Oceans will part nations come
At the whisper of Your call
Hope will rise glory shown
In my life Your will be done

Present suffering may pass
Lord Your mercy will last
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

And my heart will find praise
I'll delight in your way
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

Chocolate = Heart Medicine

I love chocolates! Unlike other people, I also like dark chocolates, specially that black Toblerone! XD

An every day ratio of dark bitter chocolate could help prevent heart diseases, according to a study realized by a team of Swiss researchers. The Swiss researchers say that the anti-oxidants from chocolate could prevent the blood veins to become smaller and less wide.

The research team came to this conclusion after testing on a group of 20 volunteers, which were smokers without health problems. The subjects were asked not to eat any types of aliments rich in anti-oxidants such as apples, onion and cabbage and after that they were given 40 grams of different types of chocolate.

Two hours after consuming the chocolate, the echo-graph showed that black chocolate, with a cocoa percent of at least 74%, significantly improved the blood flow. Additionally, ulterior tests showed that the risk of encountering blood accidents and blockages has been decreased to half of the initial risk. However, white chocolate did not achieve similar effects. The researches that performed the study say that dark chocolate contain the biggest quantity of anti-oxidants for one gram than any other products like red vine, green tea or forests fruits.

Chocolate is indeed an aliment that has many anti-oxidant elements in it. But it also contains fats and glucoses in huge quantities. So, it can cause weight problems if excessively consumed.

The best thing to do is to adjust your chocolate portion to your actual weight and to the amount of physical effort you make everyday. Persons that are involved in a great deal of effort can consume chocolate without fearing weight problems. But the ones that don’t, like people working in offices, sitting all day on a chair and not doing any kind of sports are confronted with a big problem if they eat too much chocolate. If the organism doesn’t call for sweets, like it does when we are cold, tired or worn out, then the chocolate use should be reduced to a minimal portion a day.

When I Say: "I Am A Christian"

by: Carol Wimmer

I'm not shouting, "I’ve been saved!"
I'm whispering, "I get lost!
That's why I chose this way".

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I don't speak with human pride
I'm confessing that I stumble -
Needing God to be my guide.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not trying to be strong
I'm professing that I'm weak
And pray for strength to carry on.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not bragging of success
I'm admitting that I've failed
And cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I don't think I know it all
I submit to my confusion
Asking humbly to be taught.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I'm not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are all too visible
But God believes I'm worth it.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache,
Which is why I seek His name.

When I say, "I am a Christian"

I do not wish to judge
I have no authority...

I only know I'm loved.

Celebrating my 20th with 20 Random Thoughts

So, I just turned 20 years old. YAY. I'll just write 20 random things.

5 people I love and thank God for:

1. God - of course, he's the Creator of everything and my Heavenly Dad. I thank Him for everything, for giving me another year. I love God more than anything else and I will keep on serving Him as long as I live.

2. Family - I couldn't ask for more. When I was younger and when my parents are almost separating, I thought it was the end coz it was really hopeless. But God helped us and He really moved and blessed our family. Dad, Mom, Kuya Wendz, Kuya Mark and April. I super love you all! To Kuya Wendz, who is in Pinas, I so miss you! I thank my rents for everything. My sibz, for giving the support and all.

3. Tita Ling, Tito John, and Marvin (he's like my lil bro) - They're like my second family. They are always there when my family was breaking apart. I miss you guys.

4. My friends - from different parts of the world. Special mention to my closest and great friends who are keeping in touch. I love you guys. Thanks for always being there for me.

5. Fiji - my second home in this earth. lol. I thank God for bringing me here.


5 blessings: (actually, I have more than 5. lol)

1. Family - this is the best time we have. Although Kuya Wendz is not here, this is the greatest blessing God gave me.

2. Fiji friends - I'll never forget the friendship we have here. Jenni, Siale, Zee, Rusila, Tara, Tori, and everyone else! God brought me here to meet you guys.

3. Fiji - Fiji itself. Again, He really brought us for a reason. This is one of the best blessings God has given me and my family. It's a real blessing!

4. Friends - all of you guys. Not because you are 4th, you're not important to me anymore. I super love you guys and y'all have always been a blessings to me. Thanks for being a part of my life!

5. Everything - love, life, friendships, money -- everything. Every aspect of my life is a blessing!


5 promises:

Hmm, this is hard.. lol.

1. God - I will serve Him all the days of my life and live the life He wants me to have. Whether to live here, in Pinas, or wherever, I will follow Him. He knows what is best for me and He will use me according to His pupose.

2. Family - I will never waste this time God healed the wounds that almost broke us apart. I will try not to be a spoiled brat anymore. lol. Be responsible. Be a good daughter and a sister.

3. Friends - I'll always be there for you all and will never lose touch. haha. As much as possible, I try to keep in touch with you guys. God knows. hehe.

4. I will always have that 'grande passion to live a purpose driven life' (taken from 2 of my fave books) for God.

5. I can't think of another promise anymore. lol. haha. Ok here, I promise everybody that I will always be the same Fei you guys know. (and better) lmao. Ang labo. haha.


5 Prayers:

1. I pray that God will continue to take control of my life and always keep me grounded according to His standards. And always give me strength for 'I can do all things through Christ'...

2. I pray that God will always be there for my family. I pray for mom and dad. To my Kuya's and to April. And to the extended family I always love.

3. I pray for my friends. I always pray for you all, wherever you are right now. That God will guide you always and help you in times of troubles. (let me know if you need prayers, that's prolly the least I can do)

4. I pray for this world and the lost souls. May God have mercy to those who are suffering and spare them from Hell. I pray that God will save the people from bondages of sin. I pray to touch their hearts that He alone satisfies.

5. I pray for my future. I pray for what God wants me to be. He always knows what's best for me. I pray for my dreams and ambition in life -- to help people and serve Him. harhar. And uhh, since I'm 20, maybe I should start praying for the future husband, a man of God -- God's best. LOL. hahaha. And well yeah, I want to build my business in the future - a business according to Christian principles and something that could help the people. lmao. I pray for my future family, friends, and people I will meet on the way to this journey called life. I'm 20 now, and I'm not getting any younger. lol


Ok, I think I didn't construct this well. lol. Ugh, whatever. haha. It supposed to be 20 on every thoughts or whatever but it's like too many so I have broken them down into pieces. lol. HAHAHA.
