5 loaves and 2 fishes - by Corrinne May

Five Loaves and Two Fishes - by Corrinne May

A little boy of thirteen was on his way to school
He heard a crowd of people laughing and he went to take a look
Thousands of people were listening to the stories of one man
He spoke with such wisdom even the kids could understand
The hours passed so quickly, the day turned into night
Everyone was hungry but there was no food in sight
The boy looked in his lunchbox, at the little that he had
He wasn’t sure what good it’d do
There were thousands to be fed
But he saw the twinkling eyes of Jesus, the kindness in his smile
And the boy cried out with the trust of a child

He said:
Take my five loaves and two fishes
Do with it as You will
I surrender
Take my fears, my inhibitions
All my burdens, my ambitions
You can use it all
To feed them all

I often think about that boy when I’m feeling small
and I’m worried that the work I do means nothing at all
But every single tear I cry is a diamond in His hand
and every door that slams in my face I offer up in prayer
so i give You every breath that I have
Oh Lord, You can work miracles
All You need is my Amen

So take my five loaves and two fishes
Do with it as You will
I surrender
Take my fears, my inhibitions
All my burdens, my ambitions
You can use it all
Hope it’s not too small

I trust in You
I trust in You

It is 2008 ...time really flies. It was great to be home .... have dinner with my parents to celebrate their wedding anniversary. I really thank God that I was able to attend the Watch Night Service at my church in Seremban on 31st Dec 2007. Nothing like being in the house of God on for the last day of 2007 and welcome the new year.

These past few days .. I had been contemplating about my life and what the future has in stored for me. About the chances and the choices that I want to make in my life. And all that came to my mind was to seek God first above all else and everything else will come into place.
As I was driving back to KL today .... this song was playing ...... the words just jumped at me ... and touched my very being .... tears kept flowing. All I could offer was the my broken life, my broken dreams, my failures, my loneliness, my low self esteem, my fears, my burdens and I was reminded that it was more than enough for God.... all I had to do was surrender it all to Him. I started praying in the car .... tears flowing ..... laying my life at His feet .... asking Him to do as He please with my life .... that I will seek Him alone. That He alone will be my passion.

So Lord, here is my five loaves and two fishes ... to do as You please. Amen
