Meditate and think!

'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.

but we can change our responses." 
The flesh is weak, don't depend on it 🙂
