How to heal your soul in 6 minutes 40 seconds

You guys, I found something more healing than meditating and praying!



120 singers from 80 churches in Malaysia sang "The Blessing" together and it made me cry.

If you know me personally, you know that I never cry over anything. I wasn't even choked up during my wedding or birth of my two precious babies. It is actually my special feature - Pam never gets over emotional over anything. As a matter of fact the more emotional a situation is the more I detach myself from it, almost like a ... psychopath.

But I watched this video twice already (just to be sure) and both times I watched it I cried.

Because it's so hard to live in this world right now where some of us are OK, some of us are getting by and others are not OK, they will not get by.

Instead of numbing myself to the pain Coronavirus has caused so many people around the world, this video has empowered so many people in Malaysia to bless each other through the power of Christ. It is truly the most wonderful, magical thing to see.

(Actually this is probably another first for me, I seldom talk about Christianity because I don't think anyone is interested in learning about my religious opinions).

Please watch this video now and it's OK if you cry because I cried too (silently, discretely).

Here are the lyrics:

The Lord bless you and keep you
Make his face shine upon you
And be gracious to you
The Lord turn His face toward you
And give you peace

Barakatan (Be blessed) - Dusun
Lalu ngintu (and protected) - Iban
使祂的脸光照你 (The Lord make His face shine upon you) - Mandarin
也赐恩给你 (and be gracious to you) - Mandarin
Karthar unakku samathanam (The Lord give you peace) - Tamil
Mare senang (Give you peace) - Kelabit

Chorus —
Amen, amen, amen

Tuhan s’lalu, berkati
Wajah-Nya menyinari mu
Dengan kasih kurnia
Memandang mu, Tuhan beri
Kedamaian

Chorus —
Amen, amen, amen

Bridge —
Rahmat Tuhan bersama mu
Tuk seribu generasi
Keluarga, anak kamu
Cucu cicit, anak m'reka

Ke hadapan bersama mu
Belakang mu, sebelah mu
Sekeliling dan dalaman
Tuhan ada dengan kamu

Waktu siang, waktu petang
Waktu pergi, waktu datang
Susah hati, senang hati
Dia ada untuk kamu, Dia ada untuk kamu

May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children

May His presence go before you
And behind you, and beside you
All around you, and within you
He is with you, He is with you

In the morning, in the evening
In your coming, and your going
In your weeping, and rejoicing
He is for you, He is for you

#TheMalaysiaBlessing #BerkatiMalaysia #祝福马来西亚 #MalaysiaAsirvatham


If you've read all the way to this part, please let me share that this is my prayer for you and your family as well:

May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children

May His presence go before you
And behind you, and beside you
All around you, and within you
He is with you, He is with you

In the morning, in the evening
In your coming, and your going
In your weeping, and rejoicing
He is for you, He is for you

I wish the very best for you, dear person of interest. Although I don't know what you're going through right now, it will be OK.

Everything will be OK. He is with you, before you, behind you, in the morning and in the evening.

Listen to me, OK? It's going to be OK.
