“Thinking and Doing” by me.

— This was originally just a comment but I think sharing it here (almost unchanged) can be beneficial to those who read it, if they see the point and do what’s suggested and what I’m encouraging the reader to do. —

Thinking on something is good but once you’ve thought on it for some time, you must act on it, don’t stop with the thinking, go on to the doing, that is, see and seek practical ways of applying what you have thought on.
We’re not just called to think on things, useful as that is, we must move beyond that to the point where we take practical and biblical steps in our lives and really do what we have overlooked, neglected, ignored, trivialized, which of course won’t be easy, no really important things in life are easy, but they’re worth doing and they must be done.
We’re called to obey God’s Word, His commands, out of our love for Him and because those very commands are given by the Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent true and living God, they’re not some silly suggestions of the world, they’re the commands of the Almighty One, our Heavenly Father who knows what’s best for all of His children.
It’s not the wisdom of the world we’re here to acquire and apply, it’s the wisdom of God’s Word, which is more lucid and logical than the world’s wisdom, for it comes from the mind of God and not the imagination of man.
Thinking is good, but it’s not an end, it’s a means to an end, which is doing. Abiding in Christ we will bear fruit in our lives and we will be seen as those set apart for God, in His family and of His Kingdom. If we have His light in us, we must not hide it, it must shine so the world sees. Yes, we won’t fit, but that’s not a bad thing, for to be more like Christ is more important than any of the opinions the world has of us.
Obedience to God, no matter how difficult, is more important than the opinions of you held by any people of the world.
Hopefully this helps someone who reads this who may have stopped at the thinking stage and hasn’t moved to the doing stage yet. By God’s help, they can and will if they seek to obey God’s commands, to do God’s will.

“Now unto the Lord”

“Now unto the Lord”

Now unto the Lord be all the glory,
He alone is God all holy, most holy,
None compare, none are His equal.
He shall, nay, He has defeated evil.

None shall defeat Him, no one ever will,
The Lord shall His holy purposes fulfill.
Oh, in the darkest day and in the darkest night
God is near His children, the children of the light.

When troubles come and abound,
Heed soon the wise words’ sound
And place your trust in the Lord
And in the promises of His Word.

Come, give to the Lord always all the glory,
Seek not to leave for yourself any;
Be this a reminder or an epiphany,
Either way, always glorify God most holy!

O now unto the Lord sing praises
For Jesus Christ for our sins did atone;
God Almighty it is Who alone raises
Sinners from death to new life, He alone!

The Lord is great and greatly to be praised,
His Name above all others be forever raised!

“Don’t be ignorant of the enemy, and don’t be ignorant of God’s power” written by me.

–Note: This note was actually originally a comment I made on someone’s post in a group I’m part of in Facebook but I think it’s worth sharing here, for your benefit, possible commenting upon or correcting of, but most importantly may these words bring glory to God and speak truth.–

While we can’t and shouldn’t say that we only sin because the devil makes us do it, we must realize that the devil does tempt and trick and corrupt people and preys on their weaknesses to achieve his vile purposes but the fact that we fall for these tricks and sin as a result of being deceived by the devil does not make us innocent, we are still culpable, accountable for our actions, responsible for keeping our mental, physical and spiritual defenses up and be on guard against the enemy’s many evil tools and methods and attack tactics and tricks.

We must ever be awake and aware of the enemy and his strategies and methods and be on guard lest we become easy prey for his attacks and lies.

We must ever rely on God to guard us, help us, lead us, guide us, always, in all things, for we cannot stand against the enemy and hope to win alone, without God being our victory we shall have no victory.

We must depend upon God and trust Him and surrender to Him and know that without Him we can do nothing, we can’t win a battle much less a war against the enemy of our souls, against temptations, against sins, against all forms and servants of evil.

Let us not be naive, ignorant of the enemy and his ways and strength, nor take lightly the enemy as if he is no threat or problem to us, for he surely is and to underestimate him and his power is foolish; that’s why we must ever lean upon the Lord and His power and strength and not our own understanding of this or that.

Wisdom doesn’t begin with us, and the victory doesn’t come by us nor belong to us, and the glory does not go or belong to us. Wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord; victory comes by and from and belongs to the Lord; and the glory must all go and belong to God, always.

Know your enemy, soldiers of Christ, and before that know and love and trust the Lord who alone can save you and bring you victory in this life, in the battles you’ll face, in the struggles small and great. Ever trust the Lord, ever love Him, ever obey Him, ever glorify Him!

In Memoriam 1 (an instrumental music track made by me, uploaded to soundcloud)

Note: “In Memoriam” is Latin and translates as “into memory”… A website dictionary definition of in memoriam: “in memory (of); to the memory (of); as a memorial (to)”…
This track wasn’t made randomly but for a reason, in light of recent world events as well as personal inspiration and desire to make something in memory of some who passed away not too long ago.
