Live in the Moment - Reflections of a Young Man™
Positive Quote For Today

"The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself."— C. JoyBell C.



Live in the Moment



Yippee! Here's another hymn I have composed and produced. It's about living in the moment, healing from the past and not worrying of the future. I hope it inspires you in some way. After listening to the hymn, please be kind enough to write me a review of how you find it through the feedback page of this blog, accessible by clicking the "Feedback" link on the menu at the top of the blog. I am dying to hear from you. Thanks.

Heal Me Lord





Above is a video of my fourth hymn so far. It's about asking God to heal us from the guilt, hate and worry that litter our everyday living. And it seems you will have to increase the volume of your computer or smartphone for you to hear and savour the instrumental accompaniment. All the same, I hope you will enjoy listening to the hymn as much as I enjoyed singing it. Happy listening!

Bible Quote

"Always be full of joy in the Lord; I say it again, rejoice! Let everyone see that you are unselfish and considerate in all you do... Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything; tell God your needs and don't forget to thank Him for His answers. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand."

You Matter

"Always be yourself. Never try to hide who you are. The only shame is to have shame. Always stand up for what you believe in. Always question what other people tell you. Never regret the past; it's a waste of time. There's a reason for everything. Every mistake, every moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you, grow from it. The only way you can ever get the respect of others is when you show them that you respect yourself and most importantly, do your thing and never apologize for being you."

Demonstrating His Love

"Take your communication for instance - the way you address others. It ought to be with loving, gracious and edifying words. Never talk people down. Never use words that hurt and demean people.

Talk to people in a way that they never forget the excellence of your words, the love and grace of Christ that you communicated. It's how God wants us to love."
