This is the first entry so I will leave it at the top. The entries to follow will be ordered like a blog post with the latest entry appearing first.
I've been looking through my journal and I noticed that many of the things I observe and write about are very edifying and encouraging to me. I decided to share some of what I write on this online journal.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (NASB)
22 The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
"הֲרֵי הַמָּשִׁיחַ הוּא תַּכְלִית הַתּוֹרָה, כְּדֵי שֶׁיֻּצְדַּק כָּל מִי שֶׁמַּאֲמִין." (אל הרומים י 4)
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
Romans 10:4 KJV
“Eπειδή, το τέλος τού νόμου είναι ο Xριστός προς δικαιοσύνη σε κάθε έναν που πιστεύει.”
ΠΡΟΣ ΡΩΜΑΙΟΥΣ 10:4 FPB
I’ve been invited to join the worship team for this Friday’s meeting and I am very happy-and a bit nervous. When I received the message on Monday I prepared a playlist with all the songs and I have been listening to them over and over in preparation. Today I will practice the songs on the bouzouki to get a feel of how to blend in.
What I wanted to document is that knowing that I am part of the worship team this Friday has really, really motivated me to be active around the songs, to closely pay attention to the lyrics and to sit with the bouzouki and listen and play along.
I always listen to worship songs on my headphones and praise the Lord while walking, exercising, doing household chores etc; however, having to perform with the songs demand a different level of attention and involvement—and I feel greatly blessed.
I want to be involved in worship and production of faith based songs and material. Being part of the worship on Friday has activated, encouraged and motivated me. Thank you Lord for your perfect timing.
Colossians 3:2 (NASB)
2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
Philippians 4:8-9 (NASB)
8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
The world will continue in its ungodliness until the Prince of Peace comes and the kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of the Messiah and His holy ones.
We are not of this world. Our kingdom is not of this world; therefore the world hates us because it first hated Yeshua. The light came into this world but men preferred the darkness.
Let us keep our eyes on the heavens from which we expect and await our Saviour. Let us not be entangled and certainly not conformed to the spirit of this world, for it is passing away. The Word of God and His Kingdom abide forever.
Daniel 12:10 (NASB)
10 Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.
Revelation 22:11 (NASB)
11 Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”
Revelation 22:20-21 (NASB)
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
