Here are some quotes from Oswald Chambers, written in his work “Disciples Indeed“. I like the pragmatic and realistic approach to Christian discipline. Further – as always truth applies across discipline, so if you write, do music, paint, create art, or are working toward any goal that requires study, you will see applications in these nuggets of wisdom.

Study to begin with can never be easy; the determination to form systematic mental habits is the only secret. Don’t begin anything with reluctance.

Beware of any cleverness that keeps you from working. No one is born a worker; men are born poets and artists, but we have to make ourselves “laborers”.

The discipline of our mind is the one domain God has put in our keeping. It is impossible to be of any use to God if we are lazy. God won’t cure laziness, we have to cure it.

Inspiration won’t come irrespective of study, but only because of it. Don’t trust inspiration, use your own “axe” (Psalm 74:5). Work! Think! Don’t luxuriate on the mount!

The demand for inspiration is the measure of our laziness. Do things that don’t come by inspiration.

new song > torrent divine

hello all – hope you are having a great February! Up today is a new song called torrent divine. The modern interpretation of torrent is usually an illegal download site of software and other digitally transmitted items…however originally it meant “a strong and fast moving stream of water or other liquid” to which I will massage into “a strong and fast moving stream of Gods power”. I have been messing with time lapse photography which is featured in this video…I bumped into a very cool indoor waterfall which I shot with my phone – but it seems to work well despite its “low-fi” quality. Most of the footage features Northland snow conditions since, well, that’s what I got here. The song features a busy drum groove – which I offset with a simple moog and bass guitar underpinning. We got some choir – some edgy bells and looking to the horizon-ish guitarry stuff and even a 5 part harmony…this is the second song I have done recently with a long single stroke snare roll thing…dunno why actually, it just seems to fit. So below, we have an audio only version 1st, then Flash, then Quicktime, the I-pad, so all devices mobile and otherwise should be able to partake. Lyrics are below the media links. Cheers!

hey hey what do you say
The good Lords here to bless today
He’ll cut the ribbon on a brand new road
If you grab His hand He’ll lighten the load

My oh my get wings to fly
From the chaos and sin and devils that try
To take you from the better plan
Oh Christ my Lord I know you can

In the torrent divine

Batter batter batter batter batter batter swing
Gonna swing for the fence for the Lord is King
When haters and faithless and doubters be strong
They’ll be going to the place where night is long

Groove soul vibe play
Oh so much in your life today
Lets get it right with a brand new start
Holy Spirit fill our hearts

In the torrent divine
