'And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.' Philippians 4:8-9 NLT
Think deeply, plan mentally and consider silence For we are light bearers and not by itself How can we light up? A lamp light needs to be plugged in Growing up in Africa, we had the kerosene lamp It needed to filled with kerosene, you need wick, You need a match and then it gives the light So what makes me think I can be a light without The Lord Jesus, His word and The Holy Spirit Above all, letting go of the Hand of God What makes me think I can do this alone? Truly I tell you, like the kerosine lamp I need a wick, I mean my head screwed right For sometimes I wander off, but What a wonderful God we serve For He is so patient, even I get tired with myself But He never does, The Lord is always encouraging He is a very good, it is absolutely good to spend time with Him To think about God and praise Him always When I need my voice in my head to stop going in the direction that it should not be going All I need is to mediate and think about what is good and true Finally, I started to get it. Well am not dead So it is not late, it is never too late I tell you, think about what you are thinking Because it can get spirally And I tell you to unravel it is not impossible But we don't want to get to that stage No we do not want that So whatever is noble think about it Well that should be easy I am a child of the King of kings So it should be easy, now now Let us meditate on His word, for it is gift To be noble, to think noble that can Only be found in Christ Jesus I don’t have the power, it was given to me As gift not to be taken as granted So I rejoice in the Lord my God He gives us plenty of opportunities To be a blessing to others But I must remember to always meditate on His word For the word of the Lord will never return void Listen to Him, because He gets the last word Do not let pride overcome you For that leads to the darkest path And before our feet stumble into death Hear the words of the Lord Give glory to the Lord Lift up your eyes and see Away from everything that doesn’t bear fruit Things that seems like a good idea Don’t wander off like a lost sheep Stay close, He is worthy of our patient Oh, my heart sings You are worthy of it all I let go and focus and meditate on Your word For the Lord is Holy Our fathers trusted in You They trusted and You delivered You are the same Yesterday, Today and Forever I love You my God and my Saviour.
