#iMuse | My Journal of Random Thoughts; Page 002

When a man laughs at you for something you believe in, 
he has a right to look silly.
If you are not working your part towards the achievement of that in which you believe,
you have no right to not be laughed at.

12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
2nd Timothy 1:12 (KJV)

When a boulder makes it through the storm, 
the rain is less likely to be a bother.

23 except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. 24 But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Acts 20: 23-24 (NKJV)

Don’t be too engrossed in your pain that you don’t see the person trying to help you get out of it.

Empty barrels make noise; 
full barrels make news.

7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim…8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it…11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
John 2:7-11 (KJV)

Even a child won’t question that ½ + ½ = 1.
The miracle is in 1 + 1 = 1
Being whole in marriage brings the miracle in the union out.
Be whole so the two can indeed be one.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Genesis 2:24 (KJV)

Time seems to run out faster when you feel you have more than enough of it to while away.

He can only be the Lord of your harvest if your seed was sown.

26 “The master answered, ‘You are a bad and lazy servant! You say you knew that I harvest what I did not plant and that I gather crops where I did not put any seed. 27 So you should have put my money in the bank. Then, when I came home, I would get my money back. And I would also get the interest that my money earned.’
Matthew 25:26-27 (ERV)

The quotes above are excerpts from my book "Crumbs" (©2011) and a few other thoughts that come to mind every now and then.
Like I said in the "Introduction" to the book, as the name implies, ‘Crumbs’ is more or less drops of thought put together in one place to hopefully add up to at least a bite.
The book or better still, blog notes in the #iMuse Series, are in a bid to share with you the likes of some thoughts that run through my mind every now and again. 
So, this book is for the most part, me "thinking out loud" and not an attempt in any way to assume the role of an authority in any of the fields the quotes may refer to.
Once in a while, I will also include inspired text messages and missives. It will be a delight to have you check out some other write ups and posts on this blog.
I pray that you’ll indeed be blessed as you do so.

By the way:
