“Instead if assuming we know everything we need to be asking for more information.”
Studying the natural world of
Classical elements that be four.
Intelligence and ignorance,
Effects are results of causes.
Neglected by man or not,
Creation of the universe as order
Earth and all in it we interact with.
Fanciful stories we tell of
Imaginary folks and places,
Captivating your minds,
Thoughts and emotions.
In times of lax or activities,
Other realms of such tales
Now live with and around us.
The Scripture alone
Is the mightiest sword.
Our Faith alone
We make Him our Lord.
By Grace alone
He calls us His own.
In Christ alone
Salvation is now shown.
To God alone be all the glory,
All the honour and all the praise.
Inspired by the five solas of the Reformation: Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Sola Christus and Sola Deo Gloria.
I thought I’d writing to all my dear readers. As you have noticed it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything here on a regular or semi-regular basis. Before I go into the reasons I’d like to say one thing. Thank you all for following this blog and my other blogs. It’s always encouraging to the number of visits and to read your comments.
So, what’s the reason for the irregularity in my writing? First, my personal collection ran dry years ago. And second, it’s not always easy for new ideas for poems, short essays or other writings to surface. They definitely don’t come whenever I want to write something new. When ideas come, I post. A few take mere minutes to jot down while others take weeks or even months to prefect enough to post.
Anyway, one of my goals with Seb’s Writings is to publish a book of my stuff. Once that happens you will find out on this blog site and on the Facebook page.
What needs to be done next before publishing? There are actually several things that I require: some form of illustrations (e.g.: paintings, drawings or photos), proof-readers, and formatting. This year I’ll look into these and keep you all updated.
Happy Reading and Happy Writing,
With heavenly glory
You call us Yours
By grace and mercy
Love you freely give
Divine joy and peace
You are God, not we
Long-suffering are You,
Yet judgments still true
Your thoughts are high,
Loftier than mine.
Your ways are far above,
Imagine them I cannot.
Back in February 2016 I started writing this poem. I had posted it as an unfinished poem and today I revisited it. Here is the final blog version.
If I told you there is an answer,
Would you want to hear it?
If I told you Who has the answer,
Would you want to ask Him?
If I told you it requires a reply,
Would you want to voice it?
If I told you that you must reply,
Would you want to seek Him?
If I told you where to find it,
Would you want to read it?
If I told you you’ve heard it before,
Would you want to knock on His door?
And allow Him into your life?
So that you can live your life to the fullest?
When we plan for more, we allow God to move!
When we plan for few, we limit God in our midst!
Note: This quote is in regards to a church planning ministry, community events or “God’s work through us”. I’ve been part of a small church that plans for few attendees out of fear. And I’ve been part of a smaller church that plans for many out of faith that we are doing God’s will.
