Song Meditations: "Heart Like Heaven" by Hillsong United


"Heart Like Heaven" is deep and profound. The Christian who bares His all before God, he who yearns after Him and what He desires; he will find the song lyrics hitting close to home:

Holy, no measure knows Your worth.
Face down, where mercy finds me first.

Oh, if you sought perfection;
Oh, I’d die trying to reach it.
Oh, but this broken heart is all You want.

Singing, “Holy"; heart like heaven.
Singing, “Holy, God Almighty”.
Own this heart broke sound-
Singing, “Holy is Your name.”

Jesus, how perfect is Your name.
Savior, what song is worth this grace?

Oh, I’ll throw my weakness,
Oh, into Your greatness.
Oh, if this broken heart is all You want.

Own this sound forever.
Heart and heaven together,
Singing, “Holy is Your Name”.
And if it lifts You higher,
Burn in me Your desire-
A passion worthy of Your Name.

For You are worthy Jesus, Savior.
You are worthy, King forever.
Hear my soul cry out-
Singing, “Holy is Your name”.

Perfection is something we'd die trying and failing to reach. Constantly falling short brings shame and discouragement. Overtime, the believer grows weary from an unending cycle of victory and defeat. How can one "not" get discouraged without becoming calloused? How can one remain forgiving but never consenting to frailties and weaknesses? The song grants some key points as answers to such wonderings.

To see the immeasurable worth and greatness of our God and then to see my unworthiness; these realizations keep me in the right place. I see great mercy being extended to me, I see how I am valued and loved. I see how God has accepted me, just as I am. I also see that everything relies upon Him, and not on myself.

God sees how broken I am and He doesn't expect me to come to Him perfect. He wants me to come in all my weakness and unworthiness. He wants me to come yielded, letting His desire birth in me a passion that seeks His Honor in my life.

To have a "Heart like heaven", to have my heart and His heaven together, I need to let His work be done in me. So, will I come? And, will I keep coming?

Container Gardening: Planting KangKong in Pots (Water Spinach)

Kang kong is a well-known leafy vegetable used in many Philippine dishes. It is quite easy to grow they say. There was a time when you can find kangkong patches on most streets in the neighborhood.

What is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. (Marianne Williamson) What is Forgiveness? When you've forgiven, is everything just lost and forgotten? Like a memory wiped off, the incident and the feelings that go with are never to return? The offense and hurt never happened? No traumatic, hurtful event took place? There's no history because no such thing took place? Is that what forgiveness is? Each of us deals with pain and offenses in different ways and in our own unique ways. At times, our journeys sort of connect and merge with others. At other times, we may handle the hurt in ways that are uncommon with other people. It may even seem like we're the only one who's facing that kind of experience and the way we resolve things may come off as strange for others around us. Across age groups, genders, and cultures, for
