Praise Song: "Anything"

This week's Praise Song is Patti LaBelle's "Anything", featuring Mary Mary. What an uplifting song.  There's nothing you cannot accomplish, you are a child of the King!  We must stay encouraged & know that with God on our side, all possibilities are endless! 

Don't put limits on God or yourself!!

Some may say there ain't no way your dreams gone reach the light of day
Don't believe that you can't achieve whatever you’re after
Can't be swade by the simple minds that wanna hold you down and in His time the pain you carry will be left far behind

Have you listened to this earth and have you ask the Lord for guidance have you seen His many blessings?

Don't let no one stand in your life
Change the way you feel inside
Nobody on this earth can tell you what you’re worth, standup
You’re a child of a King and you can do anything

You try to please everyone try to live your life release those old delusions
Stop wasting time and start embracing His light and let it shine
Count your blessings when they say it ain't no way
Never stop believing in yourself but in the Lord God you'll see all the answers that free you from change that would seem to keep you stumbling

Don't let no one stand in your life
Change the way you feel inside
Nobody on this earth can tell you what your worth standup
You’re a child of a King and you can do anything



Until next time.

Giving Thanks!!

I hope that everyone had a Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving!  Mine was quite enjoyable :)  I met my newest nephew for the first time; too adorable.  A priceless event!

I do love this time of the year: Thanksgiving to Christmas.  I think it truly gives us time to reflect on what's important.  Too many times we take things & people for granted.  This Thanksgiving, I began to give thanks for the lessons learned, the people I've met, the ones that have passed on, the ones that are still here, my home, job, & friends.....the list goes on....most importantly, God, & His son, Jesus.

We also must take time to remember those who are less fortunate or those in need.  While Thanksgiving to Christmas is supposed to be a happy & joyful time, many are facing difficulties that we could only imagine.  Daily, people are losing their jobs and/or homes.  We must take time out to pray for them & help if we can.  A reminder that we're all in this together & should consistently uplift each other in prayer.

May we continue to give thanks for what we have, what's ahead, & what we've experienced.  It's all part of God's master plan :)  Don't take any of it for granted.

Until next time.

Blessings,

Daily Scriptures 11/24/10

Scriptures: Colossians 2:6-7 6And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. (NLT)

Nugget: Once we accept Jesus as our Lord, it’s only the beginning. We must continue to follow Him & continue to grow in Him. Our roots must be planted & planted deep; in this planting, our faith grows & becomes stronger.

Always remember what you’ve been taught, what you’re learning, & know the direction you’re going in--all in Christ—the process is continuous. Thank you, Jesus, for our continuous journey with You!!!

Quote: “All of life is a journey, which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.” –Unknown

Daily Scriptures 11/22/10

Scriptures: II Corinthians 4:16-17 16That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! (NLT)

Nugget: We experience so many things daily; challenging things, good things, things that we overcome, & so much more. These occurrences can be both rewarding & stressful; however, the troubles we experience build so much in us—faith, patience, lessons learned, experience, & the list goes on.

The products of these challenges far outweigh the experiences themselves. As we focus on the current situations, God sees the final products! (Thank God for seeing the things we can’t see!) The products help us to become the people God intended for us to be. As difficult as things may be at times, remember that everything you experience is to build something in you that has a lasting purpose—to develop something in you that can only come from the experience itself.

Quote: "The greatness comes not when things go always good for you. But the greatness comes when you're really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes. Because only if you've been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain." -Richard M. Nixon

"Don't Quit"

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

-Author unknown

Hang in there, everyone!! Don't give up! God's in control.

Until next time.

"The Game" is Back!

Yay, my favorite show, "The Game", will return this January with new episodes!  I'm happy about this, considering it was a long battle getting it back on the air (it was cancelled a few years ago by another network); however, BET will resume the episodes this go-around.  The show returns on 1/11/11!  The entire cast is to return in their roles. 

I wonder what's next for Melanie (Tia Mowry-Hardrict) & Derwin (Pooch Hall).  Looking forward to the new episodes.  I've been a fan since the first episode, so ready to see what's next!



Until next time.

Praise Song: "Like the Dew"

This week's Praise Song is Judith Christie-McAllister's "Like the Dew".  The song states, "Like the dew in the morning, gently rest upon my heart".  This is how it should be with Jesus; He should always be on our hearts, minds, & a part of our actions. 

I nice, easy song!  I just love it when our Praise Team sings this one at church!

The song can be found HERE

Until next time.

Daily Scriptures 11/12/10

Scripture: Psalm 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Nugget: Many of us “go through things”; we have our up days & down days. In spite of our thoughts about our situations, God is close to those who are brokenhearted & to those who are going through tough times. He’s strength in the midst of it all. God’s presence & strength surpasses everything; even our broken spirits & tough days!

Quote: “This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you.” -Hafiz

Next Movie: "Jumping the Broom"

One of the next movies I'd like to see is "Jumping the Broom".  The trailer shows a good movie & story.  According to IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/), regarding the movie's storyline, "Two very different African American families converge on Martha's Vineyard one weekend for a wedding."  The cast includes: Paula Patton, Loretta Devine, Laz Alonso, & Angela Bassett, to name a few.

Here's the trailer :)



The movie's release date is around Mother's Day 2011.

Until next time.

Daily Scriptures 11/10/10

Scripture: Proverbs 19:11 The wise are patient; they will be honored if they ignore insults. (NCV)

Nugget: Our patience can be tested in so many ways; from driving in traffic to dealing with difficult people. Sometimes, we don’t realize we’re being tested. However, one of the best ways to deal with the varying things & people that come our way is by patience.

I’ve learned, & am continuing to learn, that patience is a sign of wisdom; patience shows control, faith, & so much more. Continue to allow your patience to grow in the things that you face in life. Patience could be the key you need to get to get to the next level.

Quote: “Patience is the companion of wisdom.” –St. Augustine

Daily Scriptures 11/8/10

Scripture: Psalm 126:3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. (NIV)

Nugget: Joy comes from the Lord, not from things or people. I’ve heard that happiness is what we have through things; meaning we equate happiness with the possessions, money, & the like, that we may own. However, in looking at the joy we have from the Lord, it’s endless. The joy we have through Him is because of His love for us; just Him waking us up today is enough reason to be filled with joy!

We must remember not to let anything or anyone steal our joy; it’s given by the Lord & not by people! Don’t hand off the joy that He’s given you. Daily, thank Him for joy; it’s in your heart because God put it there. Do not attach it to things, people, etc. See joy as the gift God put in your heart!

Quote: "Joy is the infallible sign of the Presence of God." -Rev. Joyce

Praise Song: "I Give Myself Away"

This week's Praise Song is William McDowell's "I Give Myself Away".  This song constantly reminds me that my life is not my own; I should be decreasing continously in order for God to use me.  I am His & am here for His purpose!  May you be blessed by these words.



Until next time.

Blessings,
