Day 6 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary

第五天:10月8日(六)

有时候付出没有得到回报,会不会感觉累?
有时候爱心没有被珍惜,是不是不想继续?
有时候不断祝福,自己仿佛没有蒙福,是不是想停止。。。?

加拉太书6:9-10说:
我们行善,不可丧志;若不灰心,到了时候就要收成。
所以,有了机会,就当向众人行善,向信徒一家的人更当这样。

那天看到一句很有意思的英文句子,翻译出来大概是:
“给出去却不记得,领受了却不会忘记,这人是有福的!”

让我们继续学习吧。。。
为了灵魂、为了国家、为了别人而禁食祷告,仿佛没有什么报酬,但在神眼中却看为宝贵!

 

Day 5 : Oct 8th (Sat)

Sometimes, do you feel tired when your giving does not see due return?
Sometimes, do you feel like not continuing when your love is not appreciated?
Sometimes, do you feel like stopping when you do not seem to be blessed despite your blessing others all the time…?

Galatians 6:9-10 say:
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”

The other day I read a very meaningful quote that goes something like this:
“Blessed are those who give without remembering, and receive without forgetting.”

let us continue to learn…
Fasting and praying for souls, for the country and for others may seem “unrewarding”, but in God’s eyes, it is very precious!

Day 5 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary

 

第五天:10月7日(五)

昨夜有个奇特的梦。。。我相信跟这一次禁食有关。。。
异梦,虽然不是常常,但也曾经有过,然而昨夜的是第一次。

我梦见与耶稣散步、聊天,感觉像跟一个很熟悉的朋友做很平常的事情,但其中一幕出现至少两次。。。
梦里,我们一起去一些很平常的地方,聊很平常的话题,是在这个世界,这个世代。我相信耶稣要告诉我,他其实都常出现在我们日常生活当中,非常参与我们平常的一切。。。

最后一幕就是重复几次的那一幕。走到一个地方,主说这是他要被抓、受苦的时候。然后,我就从旁边看到他被人用现代的方式,手脚上铐绑在地上,完全失去自由,准备被折磨受苦。。。他的头却是转向我这一边望着我,眼神充满爱。他告诉我这是他必须经过的,为了我们。。。我在梦里不停的哭泣,一直跪着无法停止哭泣到从梦里醒来。。。梦境很真实。。。

刚才带领祷告过后分享,讲到这一幕,我感觉又想哭泣,感受到主的爱、他的牺牲、他的摆上,受苦至死只为了拯救我们。如今,我们为了灵命突破,学习更爱主,也为灵魂得救而禁食祷告40天,这一点“小苦”算什么呢。。。?

“我 受 苦 是 與 我 有 益 , 為 要 使 我 學 習 你 的 律 例 。”
~诗篇119:71~

 

Day 5 : Oct 7th (Fri)

I had a strange but unique dream last night… I believe it has to do with our fasting this time…
Spiritual dreams, though not very often, I did have some in the past. However, the one last night was the first time ever.

I dreamt I was taking a walk with Jesus and chatting with Him, felt like something very ordinary with a very familiar friend, but a certain scene repeated at least twice…
In the dream, we went to some very ordinary places, talked on very ordinary topics, it was in this world and this age. I believe Jesus is trying to tell me He is there in our everyday living, very much involved in our ordinary life…

The final scene was the one that repeated a few times. We reached a place and the Lord said He was to be arrested and tortured. Then from the side I saw Him being bound by people with modern methods, chained to the ground losing all His freedom, preparing to suffer… His head turned towards me to look at me, His eyes were filled with love. He told me He had to go through this, just for us… I cried uncontrollably in my dream, I was kneeling all the time and could not stop crying till I woke up from my dream… The dream was very real…

As I was sharing this after leading the noon-time prayer, I felt like crying again when I talked about that scene. I could feel the love of Jesus, His sacrifice and laying down everything for us, even to suffer and die. And now, for our spiritual breakthrough, learning to love the Lord more and also to pray for souls to be saved, we are fasting 40 days, what is this little “suffering” as compared to the Lord’s…?

“It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees. ”
~Psalm 119:71~

Day 4 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary

 

第四天:10月6日(四)

饥渴或挨饿让人深感无力、无法集中精神做事情、心情不好、不快乐、不满足、没动力。。。不吃不喝,生活缺乏乐趣,无法享受人生,严重的话还会死人!
长时间禁食40天更能体会这种感觉。相信上帝要我们将这很真实、贴切的感受,转向对他的渴慕,即没有他,以上的种种状况就出现!愿这40天过后,我们对神的思念和渴望就如同这40天对食物的渴望一样。。。

“神啊,你是我的 神!我要切切地寻求你;在乾旱疲乏无水之地,我渴想你,我的心切慕你。。。
因你的慈爱比生命更好,我的嘴唇要颂赞你。”
~诗篇63章1和3节~

***是的,当我们愿意为了属灵的事情或神的国,而放弃生命需要的食物,我们基本上已经学习“因你的慈爱比生命更好”。。。

Day 4 : Oct 6th (Thur)

Thirst or hunger makes people feel weak, unable to concentrate on doing things, bad mood, unhappy, unsatisfied, no drive or
motivation… Without drinking or eating, there will not be pleasure in life, we will not enjoy living, and in more serious cases, you
may die!
Long period of fasting for 40 days gives you a greater sense of such feeling. I believe God wants us to transfer this very real and practical feeling to Him, i.e. without Him, all the conditions above will appear! May after these 40 days, our longing and desire for God will be similar to this desire for food…

“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water… because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.”
~ Psalm 63:1&3~

**Yes, indeed, when we are willing, for spiritual things or the kingdom of God, to give up the food we need to survive, we have basically begun to learn “because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.”

 

Day 3 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary

 

第三天:10月5日(三)
我们的身体既是圣灵的殿,即圣灵的屋子,圣灵就是屋主。那屋子里面有什么要丢掉、修理、装饰等等的,都是主人的决定和工作。我们既不再是主人就没权力乱动屋子,意思即,不再是靠自己的努力、想法,还怎么样去改变自己,当交给圣灵自己决定、动工和指示我们。

Day 3: Oct 5th (Wed)
Since our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, meaning, the house of the Holy Spirit, then He is the house owner. So whatever that needs to be thrown away, repaired, decorated etc is the owner’s decision and work. As we are no longer the owner, we do not have the right to simply do anything to the house, that means it is no longer our own hard work or thinking or whatever that can change ourselves, we should just hand over to the Holy Spirit Himself to decide and do the work or instruct us.

 

 

另,我们求上帝医治或赐我们健康的当儿,我们也当醒悟很多时候身体的状况都与我们饮食和生活习惯有关。所以,尽管上帝真的医治了,我们过不久很可能又因坏饮食习惯而糟蹋了这个“殿”。。。可是所谓“江山易改,本性难移”,几十年的饮食、生活习惯等等,如何能改变,自己很难做得到。但既然这屋子已属于圣灵,就求圣灵来动工,让他来调整我们的喜好、兴趣等等,在不知不觉的情况下也偏爱与享受健康及营养的饮食等等。。。这绝对是可能的,因亲身经历!

Another thing, while praying for God to heal or give us health, we must realize too many times our physical condition is related to our eating or living habits. Therefore, even if God has really healed us, after a while we might damage this “temple” again with our bad dieting habit… But old habits die hard, how can we change our years of eating habits and lifestyle, that is no easy feat. However, since this house now belongs to the Holy Spirit, pray the Holy Spirit come and work and let Him adjust our interests and preferences etc, that without realizing, we have already developed a preference and enjoyment for healthy and nutritious food, etc…
This is definitely possible, speaking from experience!

曾經有個肥胖的牧師,體重應該是150公斤以上吧,後來減至65左右,穿著時髦。
我問他是怎樣做到的?

他說他看著一些模特兒的身材,就憑信心宣告說:奉耶穌的名我領受!
上帝就開始動工,他的飲食習慣很自然的開始調整!
這樣也可以??!!
我聽了就學習他那樣做,結果。。。你說呢?
你是不是也想學?哈哈哈!
(先聲明這不是神學噢!)Once there was an obese pastor weighing above 150kg I should think, but later reduced to about 65, and now wearing trendy clothes. I asked him how he did it.
He said he just looked at pictures of some models and proclaimed by faith saying: I claim that in Jesus’ name!
Then God started to work and his dieting habit started to change naturally!
Wow, can you actually do that??!!
So I learnt from him, and the result is… what say you?
So are you thinking of learning too? Hahaha!!
(By the way, this is no theology!)

Day 2 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary

 

第二天:10月4日(二)
早上领受的经文:
耶穌說:”你們上去吧。。。我現在不上去,因為我的時候還沒有滿。” ~約7:8~

**体会到有很多事情,尤其是重要的决定,包括事奉神、该做的事、很好的事情等等。。。我们都要等候上帝的时间,有时候不能等待反而会破坏好事,也破坏了神原本的计划。。。

Day 2 : Oct 4th (Tue)
The verse that spoke to me in the morning:
Jesus said : “You go… I am not yet going, because for me the right time has not yet come.” ~John7:8~

** This makes me realize that for many things, especially important decisions, including serving God, things ought to be done, good things etc… we need to wait for God’s timing. Sometimes our inability to wait would spoil something good, and even God’s original plan for us…

中午领祷告时的感动:
与其一直想着“还要挨饿几天”,我们当思想及求这40天我们要经历什么,求每一天都经历新的事情、经历神的真,和让他透过各种方式跟我们说话,有这样的期待就不会被肉体的饥饿影响。。。
也向神求这40天成为我们这一辈子每天进入神同在的开始~

The conviction I received while leading the noon-time prayer today:
Instead of thinking all the time about “how many more days of hunger do I still have to go through”, we should think about and pray as to what we want to experience these 40 days, pray that we experience everyday something new and God’s reality, and that He will speak to us in all sorts of ways. With this kind of expectation, you will not be affected by the hunger of your flesh…
And ask God to make these 40 days the beginning of our life-long entering into His presence everyday~

Day 1 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary

立下心志,这一次40天禁食要跟以往不一样。。。
我要每天有聆听的耳,敏锐的灵,要从上帝那里得着启示,听到他跟我说话,并把它记录下来。。。

愿40天过后,这也成为我的日常习惯,到老到死。。。
其实在大学期间,有一段日子我有培养这个习惯,但不知曾几何时已消失的无影无踪!
求主怜悯!也求主复苏我的灵~

这一次从10月3日开始,一直到11月11日为期40天的禁食,只喝饮料,不吃任何固体食物,一直到最后10天,只喝白开水,求主保守及引领。。。

以下是第一天的领受。。。

I am determined to make the 40-day fast this time different from the previous ones…
I want to have listening ears, sensitive spirity, to receive revelations from God and hear Him talking to me, and to record all that down…

May after these 40 days, this will also become my daily habit, till old, till death…
In fact I did cultivate this habit for a certain period during my university years, but I cannot remember since when has that disappeared totally!
May God have mercy! And may God restore my soul~

This time, starting October 3rd till November 11th, for a total of 40 days, I will only take drinks, no solid food whatsoever, until the final 10 days just taking plain water, may God uphold and guide me…

The following is what I received on the 1st day…

第一天:10月3日(一)
如往常我星期一待在家里。。。
意想不到的写了一首歌,跟我一向来写的歌比较不同形式。通常写的都较“重情感”,倾心吐意那一类歌曲,可是今天写的却是“属灵”或圣经字眼比较显着的,如“和撒那!和撒那!”。。。如同当初犹太人欢呼,欢迎耶稣进入耶路撒冷城的情景。。。

反复思想,我想这是一个预言或启示吧,就是上帝要我们这40天的禁食,最主要的渴望就是欢迎他进入我们的生命、教会、城市、国家。。。歌好听不好听是其次,重点是要有渴望及兴奋耶稣同在临到的那颗心。。。

Day 1 : October 3rd (Mon)
As usual I stayed home on Monday…
Unexpectedly I wrote a song, and it is rather different from my typical style of songs. Normally my songs are more “emotional”, pouring your heart out type, but today the one I wrote has obviously more “spiritual” or Biblical words, for instance “Hosanna! Hosanna!”… just as the scene when the Jews rejoiced and welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem…

As I pondered more, I think this must be a prophecy or revelation, that is God wants us for these 40-day fast to desire above all the welcoming of Him into our lives, church, city, country… Whether the song sounds nice or not is secondary, the important thing is to have that heart that hungers for and feels excited about the presence of Jesus coming to us…

 

Translation of the song:

We welcome Your presence

Hosanna in the highest, hosanna
Hosanna, O gates, lift up your heads
Glory, glory
King of kings, Jesus, You are my King

See He who comes on a donkey
The gentle King, Humble King
I will open up my heart to You
Prince of Peace, I welcome You in

May my worship be like the clashing waves
Lord of the universe, I welcome You…

 

 

写完了才发现这欢迎主到来的歌,真的配合到我们禁食的原因!
感谢主第一天就给予这样的鼓励~
願神恩膏我在這40天內寫更多榮耀他的詩歌。。。

It was only after writing, I realized it is a song welcoming the Lord’s presence, that really flows with the reason we fast!
Thank God for such an encouragement on the first day~
May God anoint me to write more songs to glorify Him during this 40-day period.

 

禁食40天反思。。。 Reflection on fasting 40 days…

Add an Image

 

这一次,2011年10月3日一直到11月11日的40天禁食,应该是我第三次40天全禁吧,21天全禁也做过两次,几次都碰到我生日的时候,这一次也不例外。。。
若不是神,我无法想像也无法做到这样长时间的禁食。所以,我没什么厉害,也没什么了不起,不必称赞和羡慕我,若神的灵没有带领、感动及加添力量,这是不可能的事,我也不会想要这样做。。。

This time, the 40-day fast from 03/10/11 to 11/11/11 has to be my third time fasting 40 days completely. I also did 21-day full fast twice, and a few times my fasting period coincided with my birthday, this time is no exception…
If not for God, I cannot imagine and I will not be able too to go on such a long fast. So, there is nothing great or super about me, there is no need to compliment or admire me, if the Spirit of God does not lead, prompt or give me strength, this is impossible and I will not want to do it as well…

有人问我一些健康、体力、营养的问题等等,问我怎样处理、克服或解决等等。。。
我也没答案,我只能说我每天一样操作,一样上班,服事等等,健康没出问题,我觉得反而变得更健康。。。

Some people asked me questions with regard to health, physical strength and nutrition issues etc, they asked how I handled, overcame or dealt with and so on…
I have no answer. All I can say is, I still functioned like normal everyday, I still went to work and serve etc, my health is alright, and in fact I feel I have become healthier…

 

我只记得第一次禁40天的时候,第39天的早上发现自己躺在房间门口,可能血糖太低突然起来时晕倒了,但当然我一点也没受伤。也是在那一次开始吃的时候,第一次上厕所排泄粪便很困难,甚至流血了;我就向上帝祷告医治,也“提醒”他我禁食是为了他的国,马上就得医治了!

所以一切都得归荣耀给上帝,没有他是不可能的!

All I remember was the first time when I was having the 40-day full fast, I found myself lying near my bedroom door in the morning on the 39th day, perhaps my blood sugar was too low and I fainted while getting up abruptly, but of course I was not injured in any way. And it was also that time when I began to eat again, I had great difficulty the first time I went to the toilet to excrete my motion, I even bled. So I prayed to God foe healing and “reminded” Him that I fasted for His kingdom, and I was healed immediately!

That is why we must give all the glory to God, it is impossible without Him!

 

最后一次禁40天是好多年以前的事了,一直不敢想像还有下一次,因为那种40天不吃东西的情景想起来也太恐怖了,人再爱漂亮、再怕肥胖,还是不能不吃东西的。所以里面会“很怕”上帝突然又感动我全禁40天。。。其实这种“担心”真的是多余的,因为倘若是来自上帝的感动,他自然会帮助你完成!就如同现在,不知不觉又开始全禁40天了。。。

The last time I went on a 40-day full fast was quite a few years back, since then I did not dare to imagine another time, because the scenario of not eating anything at all for 40 days was kind of scary to think about. No matter how beauty conscious you are, how scared of being overweight you are, you still cannot do without food. So inside me, I was kind of “scared” that God might prompt me to do another 40-day full fast… Actually this kind of “worry” is really unnecessary because if the prompting is really from God, He naturally will help you to accomplish it! Just like now, all of a sudden we have begun the 40-day full fast again…

 

老实说,这一次全禁40天的感动年头就有了,我只是等候上帝的时间。起初也有一点担心自己是否做得到,因为太久没这样做了。。。可是当我看到很多年轻人都愿意陪着我一起全禁40天的时候,那莫名的力量就从我心里涌现,我就不再惧怕了。。。

这一次的禁食,我比以往更认真和兴奋,心里也充满期待,要看到神要做又新又奇妙的事,也期待神每天的启示和感动;所以我这一次会每天记录灵里的领受和感动,尽量每天都在这里刊登我的“禁食日记”,好跟你们分享,希望也会鼓励到你们,阿们!

Honestly, this prompting to have a full 40-day fast came at the beginning of the year, I was only waiting for God’s timing. At first I was kind of worried whether I could do it as after all I have not done it for a long time… but when I saw many young people are willing to accompany me through this journey of fasting 40 days without food, that unexplained strength started to well up from my heart, and I no longer feel afraid…

The fasting this time, I am feeling more serious and excited than all the previous ones, and my heart is full of expectancy to see God doing new and wonderful things. I also long for God to reveal His heart everyday. So this time I will record what I receive or sense in my spirit, and will try my best to post here everyday as “Fasting Diary” to share with you all, hopefully this will encourage you all as well, Amen!

我昨夜梦见的“你”是。。。 The “you” that I dreamt of last night…

 

写了一篇“昨夜又梦见了你”,导致好一些人很好奇这个“你”到底是谁。。。
好奇还没关系,只要不要自以为那个“你”是自己就好了,哈哈!
今天就来给你揭开这个谜。。。

Wrote the article “I dreamt of you again last night” and caused some to be very curious who that “you” is…
It is still alright to be curious as long as you do not start thinking that “you” is yourself, haha!
Today, I shall reveal the answer to you…

 

其实有一些人还挺厉害的,一猜就中!大概是看习惯了我写作的模式而开始抓得到我的思路吧。。。?
看来我需要寻找别的方式来吊人胃口了。。。

嗯。。。我所讲的“你”其实就是我童年长大的老家!

Actually some people are quite sharp, they guessed right immediately! Perhaps they are by now used to my style of writing, so can kind of capture my trend of thought…?
Looks like I have to seek for new methods to keep people in suspense now…

Hmm… the “you” I was referring to is really my childhood home which I grew up in!

 

虽然十三岁我就离开父母及老家,出来古晋求学,可是每当午夜梦回时,我梦见的依然是我这童年简陋的老木屋。。。
很多童年情景还会出现在梦里,爸爸还健在,妈妈还年轻。。。醒来时,总有一丝丝伤感。。。

Though I left my parents and my old home when I was thirteen to come out to study in Kuching, each time if I dreamt of my past, it would always be my childhood’s old wooden house…
Scenes of my childhood would reappear, dad still around, mum still young… and when I wake up, there is always this tinge of sadness…

 

我们家境比较贫穷,下雨天屋顶会漏水,家中没有厕所。。。
下面那一张就是我们的客厅,是华人新年装饰的最漂亮的时候;照片中的我是1998年从纽西兰回来过年的时候拍的。。。

We were quite poor, the roof would leak when it rained, and there was no toilet in the house…
The photo below shows our lounge in its best, decorated for Chinese New Year. That was me in 1998 coming home for Chinese New Year from New Zealand…

 

我纽西兰好友Jamie跟我一起回来过年,二哥背后的小门通往厨房和饭厅(看下图)。。。
我背后的墙就是我们一群孩子共用的房间,我很想念,很想念这个家。。。写着这文章时,眼角也有泪水。。。

My New Zealand good friend, Jamie came celebrate Chinese new Year with me, the door behind my 2nd brother leads to the kitchen and dining (see below)…
The wall behind me is the room that all of us, the kids shared. I really, really miss this house… even as I write this, there are tears in the corner of my eyes…

 

我大哥两个女儿,美清和美声。。。
看吧,我们连像样的窗都没有,我就是在这饭桌吃饭长大。。。有些人还以为我是富贵公子出身!
我非常遗憾没有拍到更多老家的照片。。。

My eldest brother’s daughters, Flora and Melody…
See, we did not even have proper windows, and that was the dining table where I had my meals and grew up with… and some people thought I came from a rich background!
I really regret not taking more pictures of my old house…

 

 

婴孩是大哥小儿子。
你隐约可看到厨房的屋顶,右边是爸妈的小房间,我们家就只两个房间。
看了照片,你大概就会体会我所写的这句:
“虽然表面上你并不美丽
却留给我许多美丽的回忆
没有你也不会有今天的自己”

The baby is my eldest brother’s youngest son.
You can vaguely see the kitchen roof here, to the right is my parents’ room, there were only two rooms in my house.
After seeing these pictures, you can perhaps appreciate my writing this:
“Though you do not possess outward beauty
You leave with me such beautiful memories
Without you I will not be who I am today”

 

 

多少梦里,我依然在这小路奔跑
多少夜里,这条小路引我回家。。。
后面被树叶遮盖的是我家的屋顶。

In so many dreams, I was still running on this small road
And in so many nights, this small road led me home…
You can see the roof of my house hidden among the trees.

 

我爱我的家,因为在这家里我找到爱。。。
它让我明白有爱可以不计较环境
它让我体会有爱就会有最美的回忆

I love my house because I found love there…
It taught me that with love the environment is not an issue
It made me realize where there is love, there will always be beautiful memories

何等可爱的雀鸟。。。 How lovely a bird…

早期对圣经诗篇毫无兴趣和没有感觉,灵命还没成长到能体会诗篇的含意的阶段吧?
一直到1994年,神学院第二年,才开始被诗篇吸引和感动,那时就开始创作好多诗篇,甚至一天都有高达三、四首创作的记录!
也非常感谢神让我能够一字不加与一字不漏的照圣经经文写成歌,也因而帮我熟记了好一些经文。。。

很多人喜欢问我,创作了那么多歌和发行了16张专辑,哪些诗歌或唱片是我的最爱?我常不加以思索的就说:诗篇!
最大原因是诗篇都是神的话,没有丝毫我个人的意思或话语参杂其中,所以我觉得最特别。。。
而且很多首,我自己也很”厚脸皮“的觉得旋律也挺优美的,哈哈!

在这里跟你们介绍两首不同年代写的诗篇,一是1994年的“雀鸟”,和今年2011才写的“何等可爱”。
其实“何等可爱”1994也已经写完一个版本,可是始终都不满意,一直到今年从新写过才认为“感觉对了”!在教会教唱的时候,看到大家被摸着的反应,我知道时间到了!

In the earlier days, I was never interested or I never had any feeling for the Psalms in the Bible. Guess it is because my spiritual life had not grown to that level then?
Until the year 1994 when I was doing my second year Bible School, was I attracted and touched by Psalms. At that time I began to compose many songs from Psalms, sometimes even 3 to 4 songs a day!
I am also very grateful to God that I could write those verses into songs without adding or subtracting one word from the verses, and hence that helped me memorize many verses as well…

Many people like to ask, of all the many songs I have written or the 16 albums I have released, which song(s)or album(s) are my favourites? Without hesitation, I would always reply: Psalms!
The biggest reason is Psalms are all the words of God, not a single bit of my own thought or word inside, that is why I feel they are very special…
And also many of them, being rather “thick-skinned”, I feel that the melodies are quite nice too, haha!

Here I am going to share with you two songs written over different period of time, one was written in 1994 “Like a Bird”, and one written this year 2011 “How Lovely”.
In fact I wrote a version of “how Lovely” too in 1994 but was never satisfied with it, until this year when I re-wrote it, only then I felt it had the “correct feel”!
And when I taught it in church, looking at the congregation’s response and how they were touched, I knew the timing had come!

雀鳥 / Like a bird
詞 / Lyrics:詩篇 Psalms 124:7-8; 63:7-8
曲 / Music:林義忠 / GT Lim
(寫於 / Written on : 07-03-1994)

我们好像雀鸟,从捕鸟人的网罗里逃脱
网罗破裂,我们逃脱了
我们得帮助是在乎依靠
造天地之耶和华的名 耶和华的名

因为祢曾帮助我,
我就在祢翅膀的荫下欢呼
我心紧紧地跟随祢
祢的右手扶持我

We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare
The snare has been broken, and we have escaped
Our help is in the name of the LORD
The Maker of heaven and earth, of heaven and earth

Because you are my help
I sing in the shadow of your wings
My soul clings to you
Your right hand upholds me

"何等可愛"(How lovely)
(詞/Lyrics:詩篇Psalm 84:1-4; 曲/Music:林義忠 GT Lim – 23/06/2011)

我羡慕渴想耶和华的院宇
我的心肠,我的肉体
向永生神呼吁

万军之耶和华
我的王,我的神啊
在你祭坛那里
麻雀为自己找着房屋
燕子为自己找着抱雏之窝
如此住在你殿中的便为有福
他们仍要赞美你

万军之耶和华啊你的居所何等可爱
万军之耶和华啊你的居所何等可爱

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord
My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God

O Lord Almighty
My King and my God
A place near Your altar
Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself
Blessed are those who dwell in Your house
They are ever praising You

How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty

昨夜我又梦见了你。。。 Last night I dreamt of you again…

 

昨夜我又梦见了你
这记忆始终挥之不去
醒来发现眼角一丝泪滴
黎明尚远却已无睡意

Last night I dreamt of you again
I cannot seem to shake off this memory
Awakened to find traces of tears in the corner of my eye
Dawn is still far but sleep eludes me

 

昨夜我又梦见了你
无法说出具体原因
已是那么遥远的过去
梦里为何却那么清晰

Last night I dreamt of you again
No concrete reasons I can explain
Those scenes from such distant past
Yet so clear and vivid in the dream

昨夜我又梦见了你
虽然表面上你并不美丽
却留给我许多美丽的回忆
没有你也不会有今天的自己

Last night I dreamt of you again
Though you do not possess outward beauty
You leave with me such beautiful memories
Without you I will not be who I am today

昨夜我又梦见了你
虽然你已消失无踪影
我也没办法再次见到你
却无法将你从记忆涂抹去

Last night I dreamt of you again
Though you have vanished without a trace
There is no way I can see you again
Still I cannot erase you from my memory

昨夜我又梦见了你
陪我度过多少风风雨雨
你让我明白有爱可以不计较环境
你让我体会有爱就会有最美的回忆

Last night I dreamt of you again
You accompanied me through tempest and rain
You have taught me with love the environment is not an issue
You have made me realize with love there will always be beautiful memories

 

 

**昨夜又梦见的“你”,到底是谁?你们说呢。。。?
我下一篇再揭开谜底吧,哈哈。。。
**Who is the “you” that I dreamt of again last night? Who do you think…?
I’ll reveal the answer to you in my next post, haha…
