I want something real, not fancy words
I’m done with my false hope.
I want something whole, something pure
I’m tired of enslaving rules.
‘coz deep inside I’m broken, deep inside I’m weak.
The twist and turns of this life made me feel so down, oh down.
Show me your love Oh Jesus, teach me how to live for you.
Give me a sense of freedom, ‘coz nobody else will do.
I’ll take that zig zag, zig zag road if you’ll stay close with me.
This is the day, this is the hour to sing, life can begin again.
Having this clear night without stars is just like an illusion.
I want something fresh, simply new, somehow there’s something more than this.
‘coz deep inside I’m worn out, deep inside I’m dry.
I need your traveling grace now, Oh give me one more chance, just once more.
NOTES ABOUT THE SONG
The Filamer Praise and Worship Band rendered “Life Can Begin Again” during the opening convocations of CEW.
For those who don’t know, Filamer Christian University is a sister-institution of CPU.
What a sight to see the students coming in groups, walking towards Rose Memorial Auditorium, University Church, and EMC Conference Room, to attend the Christ Emphasis Week convocations. Indeed, the students who received Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior in their hearts, whether they came forward or not, are now heaven’s treasure trove.
To give us a first hand peek of this week’s event, may I share with you Kuya Kevin’s blog about his recent Christ Emphasis Week experience. Kuya Kevin is Kevin Sanders, a Christian missionary based in Manila. It’s for the third time that Kevin has come to Central Philippine University as one of the CEW speakers.
PHOTOS DURING THE CEW CLOSING CONVOCATION…
It’s Christ Emphasis Week (CEW) again at Central Philippine University.
This year’s CEW theme is “What do you want out of life?”
The CEW text is in John 1:37-39.
Beginning July 18 until July 23, class periods are shortened to give time to the regular CEW convocations scheduled for elementary, high school, and college students.
Nelson Ayala and his team from the Agape Philippine-American Ministries composed this semester’s CEW speakers.
Just a reflection, if Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the LIFE, then the question is not only “What do I want out of life?”
It is more comforting and God-directed if we could also be asking and reflecting, “What does LIFE (Jesus Christ) want from me?”
