This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalms 118:24 (KJV)

A New Dawning

Feb
21

It’s a new day, it’s a new beginning, it’s another week and here we are so very lucky to still be at the very early point of this New Year, 201720” being ‘Redemption’ (Biblically) and “17” meaning “Victory”

Anything that happened in the year 2016 that we wish to forget, we CAN forget, we CAN move away from, we CAN walk away from. 2016 was not the end, 2017 is just the beginning. The bible tells us that through Christ, we CAN.

 

  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 (KJV)

 

And not only that, it tells us that through HIM we also have strength. Let me first start this post off by saying this: I just feel led to say this. If you feel you have no hope left, if you feel you have lost your way, if you feel you cannot be saved from this road of destruction and turmoil that you are on. Let me just tell you this, you are wrong. The devil and some people would make you think it’s so hard to be saved, but that’s not true. The scripture says:

 

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9 (KJV)

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10 (KJV)

For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 10:11 (KJV)

 

The scripture tells us to repent, (which means to make reconciliation with God) ask him for forgiveness and turn – WALK away from the things of the past.  The scripture tells us that:

 

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13 (KJV)

 

If you know in your heart that the word of God is true and pure and perfect, then you must know that his word does not turn void. It is established and it is irrefutable. People may try and discredit it all that they can, but if you have just experienced a miracle in your life or in your spirit or in your day at all. Then you know, you know that he will not lead you wrong. You may not truly believe it in your mind, but in your spirit you know. The scripture tells us that the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Sometimes we let ourselves be consumed with worries and fears and even a little ‘regret’ now and then. But be not dismayed for he is with you, he is leading you and guiding you as we speak and he has carried you through many dangers, toils and snares, you have already come! (As the good old hymnal goes)

 

 

Amazing Grace:

 

 

How SWEET the SOUND. His Grace IS Sufficient! Now – when you take that very first step and you start serving God you will find many challenges arise. Because the devil don’t bother what he already has, but he will do his hardest to try and get back what God has just taken away. But woah, woah woah! Just hold up there devil, God did not take one thing away from you. He took BACK what you stole from HIM! Hallelujah! Dearly beloved brothers and sisters don’t you think for one second that the devil owns you, because you are God’s now. You have ALWAYS belonged to God, you just lost your way. But now you have found your way back and you are now no longer bound to sin! It no longer has dominion over you! (Romans 6:2, 9) The bible tells us that we are free, we are FREE…

 

FREE INDEED:

 

So before we go any further, let’s recap –

 

 

  His Grace Is Sufficient!

 

We Belong To HIM!

 

We Are FREE!  

 

 

Sometimes it’s hard to let go of the past, it’s hard to move on. We want to hold on to the life we had, we wanna stay where we felt comfortable. A familiar place where everything went right (or at least appeared to go right) a place in which we find solace. But if we look in the bible we can find that Jesus never stayed in one place more then a few days. He was constantly moving, he would go and preach to the people of each town and they would either LOVE him or HATE him. They would either accept him or refuse him. Now most of us aren’t meant to stay in one place or one situation for too long. There are times in which he has greater plans for us. We may not know why or how we ended up where we are today. We may not understand why it is so hard. We may wonder why it is that things can’t just work out for us, or why we can’t just ‘fit in‘ somewhere.

But we must understand one thing, this world is not our home. We need not get too comfortable. We aren’t meant to LIVE here, we are meant to occupy until he comes. Jesus told us to ‘occupy’ until he comes. (Luke 19:13) We’re all Strangers Here traveling through this world of woe. If we truly put our trust in him, if we truly trust in him at all times and pour out our hearts before him and trust that he is our refuge (Psalms 62:8) then we know that we walk where he would have us to walk and if we aren’t too sure then we must seek him deeper and deeper until we know for sure that we are walking in his will and his truth. And if we are. If we know that we are. We know that all things work together for good to them that love God and to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

 

 

In Conclusion:

 

 

So let’s STOP. Let’s stop torturing ourselves with the questions that I know many of you must be all too familiar with. It is in our human nature to question what could of been, what should of been. What IF? IF only, ‘IF I would had just done this differently – IF I would have done something else. Could of I? Should Of I?’ No, no no! You are looking at this situation completely wrong my friend. Listen to me very closely, please. You are a child of the living God whom hath given you new life and with new life comes new adventure, new adversities and new places to go. He is guiding you and leading you. Do not look back, do not think back on what could of been or what may. Do not think upon these things because it will only cause you to grow regretful and bitter and your emotions will take over and when we let emotion take over we lose sight of the Kingdom.

The bible tells us to take no thought for our life what we should wear or what we should eat (Matthew 6:25) For the fowls of the air sow and reap not, yet our Father in heaven feeds them. Are we not better than they are? (Matthew 6:26) It goes on to tell us that our heavenly Father knows that we have ‘need’ of these things. But for us to seek first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto us. (Matthew 6:32-33)

We could sit and drive ourselves crazy about what could have been or should of been. But we must not be deceived for he is faithful and he will deliver (2 Thessalonians 3:3) and we are going exactly where he wants us to go. All of the people that you’ve lost touch with along the way, don’t be bitter towards them or angry that they are no longer in your life. God moved them out of your life and put you out of theirs for a reason. You aren’t going the same way that they are going and he has greater plans for us than we could ever even begin to imagine. So… Until next time my friends, May God bless you and keep you, May God make his face shine upon you, May he lift his countenance upon you and may he give you…

Welcome To My Blog 2016

Feb
27

Greetings, friends. Brother’s, Sisters, Traveler’s, Wanderer’s. Welcome, welcome to today’s blog post and welcome to my website. May you be richly blessed in some way on this day.

whiteblank

Hello, for those of you that don’t know this yet – My name is, Nathan Tune. (Jut in-case my website’s name didn’t give it away very easily.) You can read my bio to find out more about me and you can search the rest of my site to learn more about the goals and aspirations that I have. If you do so, please feel free to like me on the Facebook, follow me like a little creepy stalker on Twitter and subscribe to my Youtube channels. It would most definitely be much appreciated and I’ll do my best not to disappoint.

For quite sometime now, I have been inactive on my social media accounts. I’ve gone from posting regularly once a week to not at all. I build myself up just in time to see my views go all the way back down to zero due to lack of activity. I wish I could promise “NO MORE” to any of you that faithfully followed my blog. (Which would be very few and ancient of course) But sadly, I cannot. The fact is. Life can sometimes get in the way of everything, it can bog us down and make it incredibly difficult to continuously keep your creativity going, no matter how hard one might try or how good one might be at creating.

Don’t get me wrong, my light of creativity isn’t completely dead, not even a bit of it has been dimmed. Just halted. The candle is still burning, it’s just not burning as quickly as it once did before. Which is a better thing if you ask me. If you let the candle burn too quickly then it will soon become burnt out, and we don’t want that now do we? To be completely honest, when I started writing this post, I had no idea where I was going to take it. As I am with most the posts I write. But I have stumbled upon a perfect, yet short message subject matter.

Let It Burn – But Slowly 

Slow and steady wins the race. Or so they say. If you think about it, if you light a candle and it’s not made well enough and the wick isn’t good enough quality. Then it will burn out too quickly. And in most instances, candles are used to either put out some light or to put out some kind of fragrance. There are so many fine fragrant made candles out there, that just aren’t good quality. You open them up and they smell divine. But when you go to light them, after a couple of hours, this huge candle is gone and it barely put out any aroma at all.

Now what good is that? In life, we often feel the need to use every last talent we have as quickly and often as we can in hopes of being successful. We go bold and we go strong – and… We go fast. Yes, that is the truth. The finest smelling candles that are cheaply made will start out with a bold strong aroma, but it will quickly dissipate into the air without leaving so much as a whiff of evidence that it was ever even lit. I believe that we, mere humans can sometimes become like that. Like a cheap wick candle that burns out too quickly. We too can become burnt out too quickly from going to bold and too strong and too hard in the beginning of our aspirations.

Which is why, I myself. From now on, tend to take things a bit slower. This will be the second post I have written this year. 2016 is an interesting year for me, I am still working at the movie theater I wrote about a few months back and it is still as meaningful to me as it has ever been. With all the new movies coming out this year it should be quite interesting for sure. I am excited for what is to come and I hope that you are too.

In Conclusion:

Sure, there is much to fear in what the future may bring. But we must hold on to hope, for without hope we have nothing. We must believe. While I do intend to write more regularly then I have been, it will still be on my own time and on my own terms. It sure isn’t like I have made or am generating any money from this site/blog. I write on this and share my belief’s and opinions because I care. Because I enjoy it, because it is my passion. And I have found that while it may not be much. Over the past 3 years of being active on this blog, I have almost written 200 blog posts. The 200th post is not far away and when I do arrive to that post. It will most certainly be as special as I can make it.

If it isn’t obvious to you yet, let me make it a bit more clear. (Let me be clear. Obama impersonation) I don’t have a definite theme for this blog/website. Not a primary one anyways.

My motto has always been this. I want to be able to write about anything and everything I see fit, so long as it relates to God and life. And I can make pretty much anything relate to God and to life. You’ll hear me rant about multiple things. You’ll hear me talk about God and politics in the same sentence. (HOW DARE I?) You’ll hear me mix scripture with a political message of hope and freedom. You can even find my full set of biblical and political beliefs on this site. You’ll find a presidential endorse at the bottom of this page and in multiple blog posts. You’ll find quiche recipes, cake, and television/movie reviews as well. Anything and everything. However, I strive to revolve my blog solely around these major points.

  1. God
  2. Politics
  3. Life

If you have a problem with that, well… Then that’s your problem. For those who enjoy this blog, thank you. God bless y’all (because I’m southern and refuse to say you all just to be grammatically correct) and have a blessed day/morning/evening/night/afternoon – wherever you are and whoever you are/may be.

SHALOM –

Recognition

May
29

So many times in this life we lose the brightest souls the world would have ever known, we do not even realize that as we pass that stranger on the corner of the street that we may be standing in the presence of pure greatness. We are so caught up in our own little world that we do not take the time to look into someone else’s, not even for a moment.

7036834-sky-colors-wallpaperAnd then we see on the news about this great young boy, or this magnificent young girl, never did anything but love their families, love life, school, was bright, smart, fun, kind, caring, considerate, talented. And all within a split second, gone. Gone much too soon, and the world will never get to know the sheer joy of having them in their lives, because it will then be too late. And the world will all of a sudden grow that much darker, because we let radiance and greatness pass us by, because we were too busy to stop and say hi…

Don’t let another day pass you by where you let another soul slip right out of your sight without even giving them a simple smile as you walk by, or a “how are you?” Make a difference, be a difference, see the difference in the world when you observe the beauty around you, because there is more beauty than we think, we just have to open our eyes and acknowledge it. Open your eyes today, stop missing out and discover all that’s possible, starting with a simple hello.

People Of The Past –

When I was younger I remember these two specific young guys that I knew. I was only 4 years old and that was from my time up in the big city of St. Louis. I often wonder about what happened to them. Did they ever grow up to make something great of themselves? Or did they become entrapped in the environment that they were in? I may never know. There are some nights that it really gets to me and I begin praying for them. I pray that they did make something of themselves. I pray that they are doing OK and accomplishing all that they ever dreamed. It might seem crazy. But it’s just how I am, I really do care about these things.

I wrote once about some short encounters with people that I’ve met in the past, they were just doing their job or maybe they were just in the waiting room. Or the checkout line. It didn’t make no difference. They still made a small impression on me, for whatever reason it may be. That I am not sure. However, what I am sure of it this. I hope that they too have been blessed with all of their dreams in this life. I do not know their names and I do not know where they could be now. But I do know that they are very real when they come into my thoughts. So what can I do? Nothing really, but in all incidents in life, whether we know the person long at all or not and whether they are a friend to us. That doesn’t matter. We can be a friend to them, sometimes it will be hard and sometimes we shouldn’t even get involved at all. But, we will know when to and when we do will make a great difference.

In Conclusion:

In life, there will be times when we lose people close to us. Maybe people that we only met once but made a great impression upon us and then we read or see in the news that they have passed on from some terrible incident, and all of a sudden we begin to wonder so many thoughts. What could have been going through their head? Why? Who of my friends will be next? Will more of my friends be the next one? You are left unknowing of the next time something like this might happen. So all you really can do is hope and pray to God that it doesn’t. You start paying a lot more recognition to those around you, even more then you once did before.

Because you don’t want to do or say the wrong thing and have them be your last words. You want to be the best person that you can so if something like that were to ever happen again, at least you were all you could be. My proposition to all of you would be to do this one simple thing today, and everyday. Go out today, be you, be bold, be courageous, be kind, be loving.

Be a friend…

My Inspirations…

Apr
29

I am sure there are those that might often wonder what my inspirations are, well I have quite a few actually, most of them (aside from people in my family and friends)  are actually celebrity’s in some sense,or  how about we just  say ‘famous.’

11148971_1120526994639481_1338515431_nFrom the title of this post I am sure it is very obvious that I want to tell everyone today about those people in this life that inspire me the most, the people outside of my friends and family that have helped me to see even more that if it is wanted bad enough, if it is desired long enough, and if it is beneficial to, God, you and society, then whatever that is it can be made a reality, no matter how hard any kind of enemy may come against you, no matter what odds you are facing no matter how strong the opposition and no matter how small of a chance you actually have at becoming what it is that you want to be and doing what it is that you want to do, you can make it happen.

For the first Actor inspiration in my life, I am going to have to mention one of the most known people all across the world and to think that long ago he was just some boy, living in Oklahoma, with a rough childhood, no actual dad to be a dad, and had made many mistakes before making it to a point of great success.

  • 1. Chuck Norris

Every since i was a little boy, I have always looked up to Chuck Norris and I always loved him in his most known act as Walker Texas Ranger, a show where good always would conquer evil, though there were some violent scenes (not according to me but to some people) the morals of the stories was always greater than any kind of negativity which could have ever been throw at the show or Chuck Norris himself, the Martial Arts displayed in the show and input into the show always showed a manner of great respect, dignity and character.

I love stories of how people make it against all odds and that is actually the title of one of his books which is actually an autobiography that I have read most of before and I loved seeing all the good and bad that Mr. Norris has faced in his lifetime, it is exactly what has made him the person he is today and though there are still some people that don’t like him one bit, that is just fine. He is still kicking high and doesn’t look a day over 45, isn’t that something, seeing him today is funny especially when compared to an episode of Walker TX Ranger from 20 years ago.

I had the privilege and the honor of meeting Mr. Norris awhile back, last year on October during a campaign for our current Governor ‘Greg Abbott’ who I also had the honor and privilege of meeting, Chuck Norris was as real as it can get, he was kind and caring and considerate, and even though his ‘body guards’ (whatever HE needs those for) was continuously rushing him to leave, he was taking his time with the people and after waiting in line forever I almost didn’t get to see him because the guards was wanting them to get on the plane, but he was still taking his time and making sure that everyone got a chance. When it came time for me to meet and greet Mr. Norris, I gave him one of my business cards to which he put in his pocket and handed me an autographed card of him doing a martial arts stance.

We told him how I had always watched him on TV and how he was also like a Father figure and how he had made such an impact on all of our lives, we told him of some of what I did, things were really rushed but somehow slow at the same time. He hugged me and told me to never give up, that I could make it and that maybe we would meet again, which reminds me of him being Cherokee, at the end of Walker Texas Ranger’s Series, they did not say goodbye, I believe it was said “Until we meet again.

I will always cherish that moment and maybe we will meet again.

My next two top ‘Christian ‘  inspirations in life has got to be…

  • 2. Kirk Cameron
  • 3. Ray Comfort

I decided to  combine these two because they go together like so, when I was littler I would always watch Ray and Kirk Cameron on ‘The Way Of The Master’ since Ray Comfort is more of an evangelist, even more than Kirk, I will have to say, that Ray is my evangelistic inspiration while Kirk is actually an Actor inspiration as well, but from a very strong Christian point of view, back in 2011 before I had ever went to KD college some might remember how I had mentioned that I was praying and asking God if acting was his will for me, more or less I was actually praying if KD was his will for me, I was watching Kirk on  youtube explain how Hollywood can devour people, young Christians that only want to get famous.

I remember this key note from his speech, what he said was very encouraging, because he said if you just wanted to get into acting to be famous then he was pleading with you to stay out of the business, because people that want fame will sell out quickly, but if you went in there fearing no one but God, then you could make, as he said that I remember so clearly hearing the mail run, it turns out it was a KD information package that I had previously requested but I also remember not filling everything in correctly, so it’s amazing how it came.

I took that as a sign.

More recently I have been paying more and more attention to Ray Comfort and his life, and his ministry, I am really happy actually to say that once, no, twice he has responded me on his facebook page, he is constantly replying to people on there and his heart is filled with great love for the lost and God’s people.

Last but not least, I have to mention one of my latest most greatest inspirations, I actually wouldn’t do an online radio show had it not been for coming to find out ‘more’ about this man and his story, of overcoming so much such as alcoholism, and so much more while making it against all odds, when everyone else was dying and still are waiting so anxiously for him to fail miserably, but each time they mock, he just rises a littler higher.

  • 4. Glenn Beck

My grandpa has always watched Mr. Beck, mostly way back when he was on Fox News, I remember walking into my grandparents room and my grandpa was watching Fox News and being younger I thought it was stupid to see all of those people just arguing their heads off and then there was the crazy man with bleached out spiked hair screaming about the end of the world, the crazy caliphate which is now a reality, what Obamacare would do to America which is now also a reality and so on and so on.

Turns out the ‘kook’ was actually right about more than people gave him credit for, seems to me that people always love to criticize and put down what their puny little minds just cannot seem to comprehend, however when it turns out that what some loon three years ago was saying, is now a reality, everyone want’s to get their hands on the gold story, because now it actually means something to them when it was 10 times more important to hear three years ago, but no. Nobody ever wants to take into consideration that maybe this isn’t some crazy scare tactic to panic everyone in America and to fuel the ‘Preppers’ to go out and buy more stock.

Maybe, just maybe, it’s a reality, after studying much about Mr. Beck, I found out that what he was saying three years ago is actually, exactly what we are living today, I watched all the videos of him and his critics mocking him to scorn oh how the liberal left loved and still loves to mock him, but I seen a lot of mockery from the right wing GOP as well well you can’t make everybody happy. After all of this research I quickly became fascinated more with his story and how he overcome and rose above all obstacles against all odds, as you read earlier I am a sucker for a good testimony – it turns out that only three years or less when Mr. Beck left Fox News (and everyone from all sides leaped for joy and the mockery continued) everyone was hoping that would be the very end of Mr. Beck.

However, I believe that was actually the beginning of something magnificent, it is incredible how in just three years alone he came back in a big way, in a huge way with ‘The Blaze Tv’ and ‘The Blaze Radio’ there were times when his quality wasn’t so great, and the sound was just terrible, I mean I have felt bad from time to time about not being able to get my sound right, but then I look back on where Mr. Beck came from, which brings me to the conclusion of this post.

In Conclusion:

Glenn Beck’s Radio program, and his triumphs over all the opposition and his motivation to continue on against all of the odds, is what most encouraged me to begin my radio online, though I have always had such a talent within me, it would have not come out as soon if I had not studied the fascinating Testimony of Beck, I still watch him from time to time when the Blaze is offered as a preview on Dish and I even got a free month subscription awhile back to watch him discuss ‘The Root’ of Jihad, that was incredible.

There are a lot of things I don’t necessarily agree with Mr. Beck on, however I believe that his news network is a very trusted and validated source, with legitimacy always backing up himself with facts and evidence when he speaks of such global events, that is why Mr. Beck is an inspiration to me.

If there was anyone in life that I had a chance to met for just one day, or if I was dying and could see one person, I would choose to see Glenn Beck for I do believe he is a very real, genuine, kindhearted and loving person.

Now I hope all of you little ones have learned something out of this today, and hopefully from me sharing their life stories and how their testimonies effect me personally, perhaps we can all become a little more inspired today may you all be blessed abundantly beyond your wildest imaginations, thank you for reading my blog post today it was very nice to write it finally and until we meet again.

Believe and have Faith

Jan
04

Believing

Most people don’t know that believing ties in with faith and in a bigger way than they realize that faith is believing.

 

Faith in God

Most people think of that in many different ways but let me explain to you how I think of it.

 

 

Faith

 

Here is one of my favorite quotes about Faith:

 

“Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.”_ Anonymous

 

During times of trouble we turn to our faith, we turn to God, but what about when we aren’t going through hard times? What when about everything is going just right for us? How often do we stop take the time to talk to God and thank him for everything he’s given us?

 

I believe because we can’t praise God during our good times, that is why he brings us back to our knees sometimes often so that we can come back to realize that we need to always have faith in him for everything we do in life.

 

Believe in God is having faith that he will guide you through the right path, and that he will be there for you. I’ve always been told that God has gone before you; whatever trial you are going through he has already walked ahead of you he has seen the end and whether you win or lose, everything will be just fine.

 

“Those who have faith must be courageous.”_ Nathan Tune

 

It takes great courage for one to have faith when it seems there is no sense in believing in a hopeless situation; But you’ve got to just believe that God will take care of everything and let him lead your life. In every little thing, not just the big things; because he wants you to let him be there for every part of your life, let him guide you.

Have faith, believe, hope.
Sincerely,
