Fight On! 1/8/15
1 Corinthians 9:26 (KJV)
26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1 Timothy 6:12 (KJV)
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
When one awakens, (PTL for awakening!) TIRED, one knows it was a long, hard night!
And I am exhausted-little Amanda had a hard night and took me with her-SMILE!
Galatians 6:9 (KJV)
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
I had retired for the night with the OLD and WONDERFUL song my choir and orchestra OFTEN performed:
FIGHT ON by Donnie Harper and The New Jersey Mass Choir:
This song is a MUST hear song-especially if you are weary and wondering!!!
The lyrics are so true and powerful:
THE LORD JEHOVAH IS SOON TO COME-FIGHT ON, CHRISTIANS, FIGHT ON
HE'S COMING TO JUDGE EACH AND EVERYONE-FIGHT ON CHRISTIANS, FIGHT ON
WORK THE WORKS OF HE WHO SENT YOU WHILE ITS STILL DAY
WHATEVER IS RIGHT THE LORD IS GONNA PAY.
SET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER-SERVE GOD LIKE YOU OUGHTA.
FIGHT ON CHRISTIANS, FIGHT ON!
DON'T LET HIM CATCH YOU WITH YOUR WORK UNDONE-FIGHT ON, CHRISTIANS, FIGHT ON!
KEEP ON STRIVING TILL THE VICTORY'S WON-FIGHT ON, CHRISTIANS, FIGHT ON!
WHAT WOULD IT PROFIT A MAN TO GAIN THIS WHOLE WORLD
THEN MESS AROUND AND LOSE HIS SOUL?
A SOUL IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN SILVER AND GOLD-
DON'T MESS AROUND AND LOSE YOUR SOUL!
SO FIGHT ON, CHRISTIANS, FIGHT ON!!
I even called my orchestra director and incredibly TALENTED music arranger, Mr. Gary Hale, last night to reminisces on those wonderful days.
This man personally wrote and added orchestration to HUNDREDS of popular Christian songs of that day and actually EMBELLISHED them all!!!
FIGHT ON CHRISTIAN, FIGHT ON!!!
But, in every FIGHT there are highs and lows!!!
Sometimes WE feel like we are winning, sometimes WE feel like we have already lost.
ALWAYS remember, "THE LORD JEHOVAH HE'S SOON TO COME!!!!
DON'T LET HIM CATCH YOU WITH YOUR WORK UNDONE!!!!"
Today marks the close of the first week of this NEW YEAR-how many of us KEPT our NEW YEAR'S pledges and promises to "FIGHT ON!!!??"
If there is one thing I AM learning:
LIFE IS NOT A HUNDRED YARD DASH, BUT A LONG DISTANCE,
Matthew 10:22 (KJV)
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
It is NOT what WE yesterday or even a mere few minutes ago that dooms or exalts us-it is what WE are doing NOW!!!
Whether you just miserably failed or wonderfully succeeded matters little to God!
Are you NOW/TODAY/RIGHT NOW-FIGHTING ON!!??
As my wise old mother often told me:
ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY!!!"
Today, if you have failed, GET UP!!!!!
Wipe the dust off your back, dry your tears and FIGHT ON!!!!
Forget yesterday's amazing victory-remember God's Word:
1 Corinthians 10:12 (KJV)
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
DON'T MESS AROUND AND LOSE YOUR SOUL!!"
FIGHT ON, CHRISTIAN, FIGHT ON!!!"
GOD BLESS YOU!!!
