Reformative Solas

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.

Concerning Seb’s Writing

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,

Seb


Imagine

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.
