~ 2nd Peter 3:17-18


Many if not most chose to ignore the word of God in pursuit of worldly
pleasures. Societies more often are built on the lusts of heart rather than
the reasoningís of God. God extends patience to all who live in the
confines of this egg He calls flesh. As we hatch in life it is a choice and a
decision to do it with purpose, or one weakly succumbs to the random
haphazard encounters, allowing those occurrences to control oneís life.
Either one diligently masters control of heart or the free reign of evils face
engulfs those righteous and just freedoms God offers. To angrily blame
God for human failings is to deny God. He calls us to soberly strengthen
ourselves in diligent service with our lives, which is our reasonable
service. Love of God and country rises higher than self,
and if not, oblivion and tortures unknown unfold.


In pursuit of God one finds true life
To please God, one must believe the He is
He rewards those that diligently seek Him
Faith is hope of what cannot be seen
For we walk by faith, not by sight
From the heart one believes as confessions save
Rightly dividing the word finds Godís approval
Love of God drives a diligent heart to find Him
A diligent heart flourishes upon the issues of life
Be diligent & forget not but teach what you know
Diligence prepares one to live a more secure life
Do not lag in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving God
Be diligent, not sluggish, with faith and patience
Diligently unceasingly add virtues to your character

Diligence is a soulís heart of peace.

Darkness sinks into what it cannot find
