My Resolutions: Resolution Nineteen...Girding the Loins of My Mind.

"Resolution Ninteen: 
Resolved, never to do anything, which I should be afraid to do if I expected it would not be above an hour before I should hear the last trump." ― Jonathan Edwards. 

“Live as though it were your last day on earth. Some day you will be right.” ― Robert Anthony.

“Live each day like it's your last, 'cause one. “Live each day like it's your last, 'cause one day you gonna be right.” — Ray Charles.

“Perfection of character is this: to live each day as if it were your last, without frenzy, without apathy, without pretence.” — Marcus Aurelius.

Life and Death are the "yin and yang" of nature. One cannot do without the other. One leads to the other. Until we die, we cannot truly live. For us to truly live we have to die. We have to die to the distractions warring against our souls. We have to die to the things limiting us.

Until we die we cannot truly live. For to die is to live.


“And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.” ― Deuteronomy 30:6, NKJV.

“Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” ― 1 Peter 1:13, NKJV.

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” ― Philippians 2:12-13, NKJV.
Knowing what I know, and being one who is subdued to the constitution of the Kingdom, this is my resolve: 

My Resolution:

"Resolved: That I shall always live as though today is my last day. I will always have my mind under control, no assumptions, and no foolish frivolities.” ― St. Akin de Sage. 

This is my resolve. So, help me, God. 

The Saint.
