“Oh Brother, oh Sister, Rejoice in the Lord!”

I hope the words encourage you, brothers and sisters in Christ.

“Oh Brother, oh Sister, Rejoice in the Lord!”

If you feel weak, when you feel so weak
Remember that the Lord is your strength.
If you can’t rejoice in present circumstances,
Oh brother, oh sister, rejoice in the Lord!

When things seem out of control
Remember that God’s still in control.
When the world seems crazier than before
Remember that God’s still on His throne!

When everything seems wrong in the world and humanity
Remember that God will make everything right one day.
When there seems to be so much negativity around
Spread positivity, praise and rejoice in the Lord!

Rejoice in the Lord despite the darkness of the times
For He is your joy and your strength and your song.
Oh brother, oh sister, rejoice in the Lord your God
For He is you light and your hope and your life!

Bring your troubles, bring your pain to the Lord;
It’s difficult now but things will change, so rejoice in the Lord.
This life isn’t easy and problems are bound to come
But keep your head up, soldier of Christ, rejoice in the Lord!

God sees it all and knows the reasons for everything
But we don’t have all the answers so let us rest in His goodness;
We can’t discover all of the whys behind all of the tragedies
So let us trust in God’s perfect will and knowledge.

Let us rejoice in God now while we have time and breath.
Come now, brother, come now, sister, rejoice in the Lord.
It’s because of all that’s happening and all that we don’t know
That we need to trust in the living God and rejoice in Him always!
…….
Glory to God Alone.

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.

“Note in the Deep Night”

“Note in the Deep Night”

People have many opinions about music but of course they can’t all be right.

Music is not life.
Music is not everything.
It is only a small part of the whole that makes life what it is.
Music without God – as is anything without God – is a void.
If you make music, let not your music be a Godless tool.

To Christians, at least, music should not be an aspect absent in their life.

150 Psalms in the Bible aren’t there to fill up space, to fatten the Book up.
Practical applications are to be sought; all the songs are to be sung;
Our lives and others’ lives are to be affected; the love of God is to be spread; our silence is to be broken; the devil and his lie are to be
fought against!
It was never the devil’s world to begin with, so drown out the whispers of the wicked one with a flood of praise unto the true and living
God! Resist that wretched old worm and he’ll flee; don’t forget that by Christ’s blood and death you’ve been set free.
