Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
            After playing piano for worship at the nursing home, I went to the empty church as usual to pray at the altar... not 'alone' since with God.  And, once again, I was sad because I yearn to “redeem the time”  like God says to do in Ephesians 5:16,  right before one of my very key verses,  Ephesians 3:20. 
            I was complaining to God that I felt so lazy,   
so indolent, not accomplishing much.                        

    I was confessing to Him that I just wasn't “getting” whatever He wanted for the song I hoped to record that night (“Satan Hates Church Bands DOXOLOGY”) because the melody and chords sounded good on guitar, but I couldn't come up with any background tracks that did not bore even me.  

 Somehow, a God-how,  right before I'd gone into the nursing home, a radio person said the word “indolent” and in my mind I instantly added the word “Christian.”  Knowing how forgetful my mind is, I even wrote down the two word phrase.

So there at the altar, I was praying about this phrase.
About me. About wanting so much to do more for our LORD Who has done so much for me.
Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:  
            And by the time I drove into my driveway 1/2 hour after leaving church,  I had these lyrics in my mind.  And by the time I went down to my home studio, I had the music in my mind, which I filled in with more colorful chords as the song progressed.  And by the time I went to the studio that night...... Yes, you may have guessed it if you know our Great God:
          This song was ready to record.  Ephesians 3: 20.  It is HIS empowering, not my skill.
The Song Story continues: 
          I  DID  complete and record  "Satan Hates Church Bands DOXOLOGY" that night, with my country guitar style playing.... -- PLUS a 3rd song, “Psalm 119 Loving Living Word 73 Yod.
        ONLY WITH GOD can         Ephesians 3: 20 to 21
one musician and one studio producer prepare 
3 songs for the World Wide Web in a night.
Dedicated to Our BIG God, 7 May 2013

Part 1 --  READING  during the introductory music: 

INDOLENT:   Wanting to avoid activity.        
      Lazy.  Idle.  “Do-nothing.”                         
           Slothful.  CHOOSING  to remain aimless.          
Medical term:  A disease condition that causes little pain.... even if “a killer”                 

God's Word FIRMLY says to NOT be indolent... The limited time He gives you and me are hours we will account for one day.
“A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things.”  Proverbs 18:9, New Living Translation.   The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly RUN to Him and are safe. “  -- Proverbs 18: TEN --- the opposite of lazy and INDOLENT.

Jesus says through words LIKE Matthew 7: 19 -- be warned that there are MANY words from God on this topic:   "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.   Luke wrote the same word from Jesus in Luke 3:9.  "And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."

Jesus tells us what IS going to happen -- maybe soon -- in Matthew 24.  In the VERY next chapter, Jesus gives the warning about the five foolish bridesmaids who did not expect their LORD to return.  And THEN Jesus warns you and me:  We SHALL die.  Are we being so indolent as Christians NOW that we will THEN ask Jesus, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?' -- 

only to hear Him say that we were ignoring HIM when we waste so much time and even prayers focused  
on GETTING blessings from God instead of on 
BEING a blessing to God's people 
as our way of showing Him not just love but obedience.

We've got the     God    Who made the Universe 

calling out to us!
We've got the    God    Who could destroy us        

calling out in love.
We've got the    God    Who could MAKE us puppets   
    INVITING US to just come....
        talk with Him,  in simple speaking prayer.
            Inviting us to be His children who DARE
to do all things through Christ Jesus -- Philippians 4:13  and Ephesians 3:20!
                ALL TO HOLY GOD'S GLORY!


Part 2 -- READING  during the interlude music: 
    God's Word FIRMLY says to NOT be indolent... to watch, PRAY.
    Jesus set the example in Luke 18: 1.  Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart.   

    Jesus warns us through Luke 21: 36 about events that very much describe TODAY:
"Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy* to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."  

    God continues to warn us to NOT be INDOLENT and lazy.  Titus 3:8,  This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men. 

    Colossians 4:5 in New King James Version:  

Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, 
redeeming the time.  
Colossians 4:5 in New Living Translation.  
Live wisely among those who are not believers, 
and make the most of every opportunity.                      

You've got the  God  Who made the Universe 

calling out to YOU!
You've got the    God   Who could destroy you   

calling out in love.
You've got the    God       Who could MAKE YOU 

His puppet --   INVITING YOU to just come....     
talk with Him,  in simple speaking prayer.  
Inviting you to be His child who DREAMS and DARES  to do all things through Christ Jesus -- 
Philippians 4:13  and Ephesians 3:20!        

Which includes Ezekiel 28  -- God CREATED  Satan... that's why God can
easily destroy Satan if He wanted.  But for now, He's using the devil to "sharpen" you,
to help you mature....
  (VERSE 13 identifies the listener as in the GARDEN of Eden.  Verse 16 identifies
the listener as a CHERUB (type of angel).  Be sure to look at verses in context!
This chapter refers to several topics, including Tyre turning to Satanic ways.)
