If you’re shining light into dark places, keep on keeping on. If you’re taking a right stand, even though people might accuse you of all sorts of bigotry and other buzzwords for doing so, keep on keeping on.

Let their criticism roll off you, and stand firm.

Correcting error matters, pandering to wickedness & delusion helps it fester like a sore.


Morning Notes

The very fact that you’re still breathing, still here, able to make a good impact on someone’s life, is a blessing.

I just wanted to drop in and say, whatever you do today, do it with zeal. Do it to the fullest and best you can, and especially, keep the soul in your success. ❣️❣️❣️

Every heartbeat we are blessed with should be put to great use.

A Few Morning Notes

Good morning, everyone.

I’m consuming as much writing as I can. I’m hoping to draw on it later for inspiration in my own material. Writers like Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway often drew on their own life for material.

This has become classic advice among writers, to write what they know. When you have an endless well of experience to draw from, writer’s block can’t really find a good foothold.

I know of one writer who has built an entire career just jotting down his nightmares. Not that I’d always advise that or think it works for everyone, but it’s good methodology for him at least.

I Love The Visionaries

I am inspired more & more these days by the deep thinkers & visionaries of the world. Those who, when they are told they can’t achieve something great, they work & fight for it that much harder. I am inspired by the artistic, and even sometimes the eccentric, the nerds, the oddballs.

I am fairly reasonably educated, but I think had I grown up w/more of these types in my circle, my life would have turned out majorly different. I would have been MORE driven than I already am, I would have had a DEEPER curiosity, I would have shot for higher goals than I’ve probably even fathomed presently.

Steadfast Faith

When I see and hear other believers, it sharpens my own faith. I heard a song earlier from the recently late Jeff Carson that was essentially a prayer, and it touched my heart.

It encourages me knowing there are still those speaking boldly about God & faith & salvation in the midst of a culture that seems to be getting darker by the day.

What everyone needs is the Lord and faith in Him, not lipservice to Him, I mean genuine & steadfast faith.

Sometimes you write the songs….

“Sometimes you write the songs, sometimes the songs write you”-Guy Charles Clark

Reading the above quote, I take it to mean that a song can be life changing, that it can influence you profoundly, and from personal experience I can attest to the truth of that. One of the reasons I’m enamored with music is because of the wide range of things it can do.

It can inspire, it can uplift when someone is down, it can even be educational. I think music is one of the greatest things we’ve ever been blessed with, which is not to say we should make an idol out of it, of course, but I am thankful for it.
