Sunrise by Janina Vela Punzalan

Sunrise - Janina Vela from Aliza Pauline Buluran on Vimeo.

Sunrise. A song written and sung by 14 year old Janina Punzalan, daughter of my good friend and co-pastor Paolo Punzalan.

Together with students from Victory Fort Janina produced this video to inspire Yolanda victims and their countrymen to trust that after all that has happened - there will be a Sunrise.

Here's the lyrics of the song:

SUNRISE
by Janina Vela

I know you feel that there's no hope in sight
Don't worry now everything's gonna be alright
Don't give up and soon your fears are gone
Keep movin' on… keep movin' on

Sometimes when you feel
Like nothing is real
Just remember to look to the Light
Darkness may be consuming your night
But soon will come your sunrise
Soon will come your sunrise

The clouds maybe blocking out the sun
Hold on tight the good days will come
Don't give up (take a chance) and see your battles won
Keep movin' on… keep movin' on

Sometimes when you feel
Like nothing is real
Just remember to look to the Light
Darkness may be consuming your night
But soon will come your sunrise
Soon will come your sunrise

I know that the roads rough right now
And it's tough right now
And I know you can't stand up anymore
You can feel it inside
That spark that light
It keeps you holding on

Sometimes when you feel
Like nothing is real
Just remember to look to the Light
Darkness may be consuming your night
But soon will come your sunrise
Soon will come your sunrise

    While listening to the beautiful voice of Janina,and watching the video....every lines every words every photos...has it's meaning to me.
    I remember that moment of difficulties....the darkest trying times I'd experienced!
    It seems no one can help me....nevertheless,that painful circumstance gave me a courageous move to hang on to God....anchored on Him and have His way work as if I am nothing. I lift up my heart and surrender everything to the Lord! These bible verse lead me....
    Matthew 13:31-32
    31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”

This is also why I respond to them as best as I can and at the soonest possible time. I believe that group answering benefits more people than private email exchanges.
