     If my life was music
I will discover beauty in all things

Like the melody erupting

From the skillful fingers of raindrops 

on the rooftop

Mingling with the ground 

In orchestral symphony.
    If my life was music

I would have lyrics blazing

From within like Jeremiah

Flaming with life

Till it reaches a crescendo

Where everyone’s soul pops with glee.
If my life was music

I would have lyrics tasting

Sweet as Ezekiel’s scroll

On the tongues of all

Who wants to take a bite

Till all bitter hearts be done with bile
    If my life was music

Like deafening sound of thunder

Or as a priest with a shofar

I will take his praises to unknown sea shores

Causing endless flow of symphony.
    If my life was music

I will hum to the Heavens

With melody in my heart

I will tune my mind to the benevolent

Ambience of His presence.
    If my life was music

I will sing with largesse

In unknown languages

Because I have been skilled sparingly
   If my life was music

I will bring to life

That concert within me

Erupting like a lava

Responding to deuteronomy 4:24
   If my life was music

Silence would seize to exist

I will proclaim from the mountains

Teaching the world songs of His goodness
    If my life was music

With my ten strings

To the rhythm of life’s blues

I will sway

As I observe how powerful He is

The Conductor of nature’s Opera

A master once went on a journey. Before he left, he entrusted some talents into the hands of his servant. He gave some more others less but the outcome he expected were the same,
“occupy till I come”.
To each one of them he gave them talents according to their “several abilities”.(Mathew 25:14_30),(Luke 19:13_22).

The ones that developed theirs were the ones that mattered.

A friend of mine once asked “Did people in the Bible ever know that they’ll be in the Bible?”

After pondering over that question I realised, if they had known they would be in the Bible some of them would have made better choices,upgraded their talents , impacted more lives and made better decisions.

Now that was Jesus the prose poet giving us an analogy of the kingdom of heaven in Mathew and Luke above.

With God telling us to “occupy” till He comes, I’ll love to think of this “occupy” in terms of developing and using all the talents He kept stored inside of us for the Good of others and the work of His kingdom.

Which brings me to the “upgrading” part. I’ve once heard someone say “knowing Jesus doesn’t cover shallow works”

In our secular world, the jobs available for a secondary school leaver aren’t the same available for someone on the masters level. Their level of knowledge accumulation isn’t the same, the one on the masters level upgraded while the one on the secondary needs upgrading.

Your value for something determines the depth of knowledge you’ll be willing to search out as regards that matter.
Jesus came to Earth to show us how to go about the Father’s work,He lived a life of excellence .
I remember Him saying He was going about His Father’s “business”. That business He spent 30years preparing for.

We need to prepare and develop any skill God has put into us so we can be fruitful and bring the Father glory.

Sitting down in a particular place gets tiring and boring so is a skill that doesn’t get upgraded over time.

Erase the ‘I don’t care’ mentality or the ‘this has always worked ‘ mentality and upgrade your skills so you don’t get outdated.

The Father’s business is serious business.

Its 2am
My bed beckons yet I choose to ignore.

   I reflect by my window.
I couldn’t scale it
So I thought
Although I never tried
I heard it was an insuperable trip,

   Somehow from the chambers of my apperceives
I knew I needed at least a feel.

   With the landscape framed with pictures of scorched dreams
My confidence took an unannounced trip

The road looked broken
What lay beyond I couldn’t tell

So

Ages I stood
With feet dragging behind
And a compass of passion
I took a step…

As I passed through every phase
I ponder!
With flutters of regrets arising from thinking of me in retrospect.

Although am yet to make my mark
Am glad I made a move

Because

Who can live right
With layers and layers of regrets?.

  “You know
 We all have dreams
But until we start living them
They would always be dreams”

Compliments of the season everyone. Hope you are having a time of your life.

This issue has just been a major concern to me of late, then going through Joyce Meyer’s book and realizing she also had something to say about it and I was like “ohh!! It wasn’t just me after all”. So I guess I just have to write something about it,because I’ve had times when someone calls me and say::::” Christy!!! I think you shouldn’t go anywhere today, even outside your door I feel something terrible is going to happen to you today”””. Huh??? #My first thought “GOD FORBID”!!!!
Ahhh

Not using sanctified common sense is when people get a sense that something bad is going to happen to someone else,so they call that person and say ::::”I have been praying for you, and I sense that something really bad is Going to happen to you”.

See the bottom line is, I don’t believe there is wisdom in telling anyone such things because that kind of news can only bring fear, and Gods word says “”FEAR NOT” (Psa 118:6,,,2Tim1:7,,Deut 31:6,,Isa 41:10,, and it goes on and on)

Sanctified common sense tells us that if what we are hearing about someone else is from God,then He has given us that warning so that we will pray for that person’s protection.
What good would it do to scare the person with such news?

I won’t discount that God may lead us to tell someone a specific word for a specific event, but He would not tell us to impress someone with a generalized fear.
There’s a great difference between the two.

Only sanctified common sense will help us know which way we ought to go.
I guess we just have to ask God for sanctified common sense to lead us.
Discernment,Wisdom and Balance.
