The Thoughts

“It’s like being in love. ‘It’s amazing… and I’m scared to death.'”

Jon Foreman

Wow, it looks like it’s been a long time since i’ve updated something.

So it’s something to hold you guys back for my next update. Blows dust away.

“For all the things inadequate, Well nobody will be gratified.
Mixed of thoughts of greed, normality. Massacres of the unfortunate.
The future is, yeah, totally in vague. Arousing hatred, resentful features.”

Barricade, Love me Butch

We don’t see it everyday.
i guess we either hide the fact that we are. in deed, do speak hate everyday.
Against brother, country, situation. Whether knowingly or unknowingly.

“I hate my college bus system!”
“This whole government system, is really bad.”

Others run away.
and yet still, from a far. still speak about it, expecting the people within to change the system from within.

“I look around and I know there’s a lot in the world that I want to see changed–and I want to be a part of something bigger than myself. I want to see things change, in myself as much as in the world around me.”

Jon foreman.

First and foremost, the change within ourselves.
A battle with yourself, hardest warfare you can ever fight. and it’s always on-going.
A change in spirit and attitude.

Be it apathy, hate, disrespect, fear.

it all has to bow to the will of wanting change for the better.
the will of Jesus, the will of the Holy Spirit.
A fight for change within myself, ourselves and our all around.

It so easy to let hate out of our lips, speak love.
To brothers, Country.
and to your situation.

Before you start with changing where you are.
Start with what you speak.

Life or Death, you choose.

18 There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword,
But the tongue of the wise promotes health.

Proverbs 12:18 (NKJV)

I’m still trying.
and i wanna speak love.

I’m trying my best.

I wanna speak love and see change.

“Christ will never be cool. Terrifying, life-changing, shocking, and iconoclastic, but never cool. Jesus is not my homeboy. The Gospel will always be relevant but never trendy.” – Jon foreman.

Why try so hard to be cool when you could be relevant?

Paul was never cool, infact he was much cooler when he was trying to bring down Christianity among the jews.
he had gangs following him around to be “cool”

Guess what.

When he was Relevant. People listen.
Jesus was relevant, Crowds follow him.  thousand of people are just waiting around him just waiting for him to say something that could change their life, which it did.

People drawn to relevant things. cool things. not so much.
I guess people are craving for something deeper than just cool.

Things that touches the heart would mean more that then external.

Relevant is the word.

Love is always relevant. and i guess thats what Jesus did.

He loved.

Shouldn’t we be relevant also and love?

12 Who else has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers?
Who else knows the weight of the earth
or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?

-Isaiah 40:12 (NLT)

and yet, new galaxies, stars, solar systems and planets are being discovered constantly
even explaining to one of my guys just brought me almost in awe on how BIG God is.

He measures the heavens(UNIVERSE) with the span of his hand.

mind, you it’s BILLIONS, TRILLION light years apart.
and to put things into perspective;
to get to 100 light years, requires you to travel: 100 years at the speed of light
and it just blew my mind away.

and Isaiah 40 ends with this verse.

28 Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

-Isaiah 40:28 – 31

I choose to believe that God is Good.

God puts the Owesome, in Good.

“..I’ll be the phonograph that plays your favorite albums back as your lying there drifting off to sleep…
I’ll be the platform shoes and undo what heredity’s done to you… You won’t have to strain to look into my eyes.”
