"Speak To Me" by Kari Jobe

😢
 
There isn't a Kari Jobe song that I don't listen to.  No matter how stressed I am, this song puts things in perspective.  All of her songs do that for me.  There aren't many songs that I have listened to today, so you have to excuse me if I have come upon this song so late.  It is as if I am always the last to know some things, if not all things.

Just stressed

As I am writing right now, I was thinking about always what to do.  I seem to have proven others right.  I got my feelings hurt, but they are right.  However, I have gotten lazy when it comes to my health.  I have a lot to do it seems.  One goal as a time means that I don't have to do everything at once.  I have a lot of issues running through my mind.  Well, it seems that way.  I have exercise, a healthy diet,spending time with and obeying the Lord, etc.  It seems that a woman's work is never done.  So, where do I begin?  Then there is my physical, mental, and my emotional health.  I realize that life isn't always easy.  It is a lot of pressure that I put on myself.  I need to first relax.  Now that is what I call a first step.

"Say Yes to the Dress"

Right now, I am watching "Say Yes to the Dress".  I don't know why, but I just love it.  It is the type of show I or anyone else can watch whether it is in the morning, or right now, in the evening.  It is a good show because I find it interesting.  I guess it is because I don't find the show mean-spirited or exploitative.  I admit that it is not everyone's cup of tea, but it is actually better than a lot of shows out there.

Five minutes to peace

I guess there isn't much to write much about.  Well, at least my mind is calm.  I feel so much better.  I don't know what has been going on with me, but it feels good to actually rest.  Even if it was for five minutes, a little rest wouldn't hurt.  Five minutes is not enough time for a dream.  I wish it were.  Right now, I am at peace.  I actually, I feel I am at some much needed rest.  I am calm.  I am thankful.  I feel blessed.  I haven't had that in a while.  It is as if all is right with the world calm.

You Must Be Born Again

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus said to him,

“How can these things be?” Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

Black Love Matters



Home
 The feel of your beautiful brown skin sliding against mine;
it's oh so good and super fine.
My fingers touching along juicy places;
Slipping and pumping in secret spaces.

You feel me baby, I know you do;
That sensual rhythm that's me and you.

This is why you have to know,
Being with you...feels right,
its home.

"I Will Rest in You" by Jaci Velasquez

Lord, I'm in the dark,
Seems to me the line is dead when I come calling.
No one there, the sky is falling;
Lord, I need to know.
My mind is playing games again,
You're right where You have always been.
Take me back to You,
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me.
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.
Tell me I'm a fool,
Tell me that You love me for the fool I am,
[And*] comfort me like only You can,
And tell me there's a place
Where I can feel Your breath
Like sweet caresses on my face again.
Take me back to You,
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me.
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.
La la la la You.
La la la la la.
La la la la la-ah.
(You, ) You la la la la You.
La la la la la-ah. (You.)
Take me back to You.
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.
Oh, la la la la la
I will rest in You.
(I) I will rest in You. (in You)
I will rest in You. (Sweet caresses)
I will rest in You.
I will rest in You.
(So take me back to You)
I will rest in You (I, I)
I will rest in You.

How to Take More Action: 9 Powerful Tips by Henrik Edberg

How to Take More Action: 9 Powerful Tips

 “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”

Leonardo Da Vinci
To get things done you need to take action. Things seldom happen on their own.
But taking action can be difficult and hard. And so it’s easy to wind up in Lazyville or Procrastinationland a lot. How can you break out of such behaviour and develop a behaviour of taking more action?
Here are 10 tips that you’ll hopefully find useful.

1. Reconnect with the present moment.
This will help you snap out of over thinking and just go and do whatever you want to get done.
This is probably the best tip I have found so far for taking more action since it puts you in a state where you feel little emotional resistance to the work you’ll do. And it puts you in state where the right actions often just seem to flow out of you in a focused but relaxed way and without much effort.
One of the simplest ways to connect with the present moment is just to keep your focus on you breathing for a minute or two. Check out 7 more tips in 8 Ways to Return to the Present Moment.

2. Be accountable to others.
If you tell a bunch of people that you are going to do something then it will be hard to not do it. You don’t want to disappoint them. Or have to face up to them the next time you meet.
If you have a hard time getting going with something get some support. If you for instance workout, do it with a friend to motivate each other to take action – and actually go to the gym – when motivation runs low. Motivating each other and bringing enthusiasm when one of you is feeling low can really help to develop consistency and useful habits.
Think about how you can involve others to help all of you to take more action.
This tip works well. But it can put you in situation where you take action to avoid pain, to avoid judgement. And it can help you create pressure within yourself. Such a state may not always be the best one to be in to take action and perform well. One way to lessen such problems is to use this tip and then when you are about to take action you reconnect with the present moment to quiet negativity within yourself.

3. Be accountable to yourself.
In the long run a more consistent and perhaps healthier way to develop a habit of taking more action is to answer to yourself instead of others. To set your own standards and principles for how you will behave.
The problem with this one is that you are likely to cheat on yourself and rationalize how you don’t need to take action or follow your principles. When the social pressure of having to answer to others isn’t there it’s easy to slip and fall into laziness or procrastination.
But over time you can become more and more consistent with acting according to your own standards. I believe that one of the keys to develop this kind of thinking is to get off a dependence on external validation and be more internally validated. You can read more about that at # 8 in 9 Great Ways to Make Yourself Absolutely Miserable.
If you can develop accountability to your own standards then it can be more consistent than the one you get from relying on being accountable to others. It comes from within so it doesn’t have to rely on other, outer circumstances that may fluctuate.
It is also very useful to help you feel good about yourself and to help you grow. If you rely on being accountable to others and their validation then you may grow but also feel confined by what others expect from you. If you are accountable to yourself then you set your limits wherever you want them.

4. Lighten up.
One way to dissuade yourself from taking action is to take whatever you are about to do too seriously. That makes it feel too big, too difficult and too scary. If you on the other hand relax a bit and lighten up you often realize that those problems and negative feelings are just something you are creating in your own mind. With a lighter state of mind your tasks seems lighter and becomes easier to get started with. Have a look at Lighten Up! for more on this topic

My situation about no longer being stuck in the past

Here is my situation.
I have been stuck in the past so long, that I don't know where to begin. I am at an age where I have found myself regretting the things that I did when I was younger. Now, I would like your advice on this. I am a different person now. I am in my 40s now. I became a Christian in my late teens and there have been times I have regretted making some foolish decision that I felt have led me to the position where I am at now. I am now seeing a counselor and all, but I wonder if secular counseling is right for me. It took a long talk with God to realize that I need to live in the present moment, but what do I need to do? I have no idea where to put my foot forward. I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life. If this were your situation, regardless of your age, where would you begin?

Grandpa, Tell Me About the Good Old Days by the Isaacs

LyricsGrandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the…

The Isaacs

Grandpa Tell me 'bout the good old days. Sometimes it feels like
This world's gone crazy. Grandpa, take me back to yesterday, Where the line between right and wrong Didn't seem so hazy. Did lovers really fall in love to stay Stand beside each other come what may was a promise really something people kept, Not just something they would say Did families really bow their heads to pray Did daddies really never go away Whoa oh Grandpa, Tell me 'bout the good old days. Grandpa Everything is changing fast. We call it progress, But I just don't know. And Grandpa, let's wonder back into the past, And paint me a picture of long ago. Did lovers really fall in love to stay Stand beside each other come what may Was a promise really something people kept, Not just something they would say and then forget Did families really bow their heads to pray Did daddies really never go away Whoa oh Grandpa, Tell me 'bout the good old days. Whoa oh Grandpa, Tell me 'bout the good ole days.

Why---and keep asking why

6: Ask “Why” – And Keep Asking

Next time you’re struggling to get perspective, ask why you do something. Channel your inner child here – be tenacious in pushing for a real answer!

If you’re working a job you hate, why are you doing it? Perhaps it’s for the money – but do you really need that money? (You may well do. But it’s possible that you’re trying to support a lifestyle that’s actually making you miserable.)

It can be uncomfortable to look at the reasons why we’re pursuing the goals that we have. But by being honest with yourself, you can open up the possibility of change.

It is uncomfortable.  However, maybe being uncomfortable can be a good thing.  I realize that I only had one goal and that is why?  I realize that asking questions is an answer to problems that I have.  Why did I allow myself to be overwhelmed all of those years.  Now I know better.  I believe that asking questions can go a long way into solving whatever problems that I have.  Maybe I should ask why and what is my purpose on  this planet.  I sometimes feel like I am in a hurry and maybe I should ask why?  Gaining a fresh perspective on things would be something refreshing for me.

"I'll Follow You Always" by Rev. Lawrence Thomison

This is a wonderful song to listen to.  I could not find the lyrics to this song.  It no longer matters.  I find this song not just one to listen to, but one that is inspirational.  I love this song because I want God to use me.  I will follow the Lord always, as every Christian should.

All Life Matters

I think it is shocking and it is sad that the US is so divided even in the "subject" of whose life matter.

I have noticed that there may be a racial division when it comes to what matters especially considering the justice system and corruption. I believe that all lives matter, including black lives aand that we should come together as one with either similar viewpoints, or come to an understanding or agreement on whatever your or my view of this issue. Also, should or would it be wise to agree to disagree on this very issue since I believe that we should focus on not just one life or another.

Yes, black lives DO matter, and I think that is the point of the movement whereas there is corruption and injustice. My video is about I believe the Bible says on this matter. I realize that much of the video with a lot of verses, but I believe that it is also important for us as the Body of Christ to preach the gospel and to realize that we need to open our eyes.

Whether or not one agrees with the content of this video or not, I believe that this division is really sad, and pathetic. What are your thoughts on this video and your thoughts of this division and I think the answer is to be a salt and light to a society where there is division, hatred, and where people live in a culture of death that has I believed have caused many of US to be desensitized? Hopefully, what I have written is the pont of my video. Forgive me for the length of this said explanation.

Simple advice

There is nothing in the world like taking simple advice seriously.  I have realized that in the past that is all I have done.  I have worried about the present more so because I stayed stuck in the past.  I am this and that and the other.  The problem was not really who I am, but I was stuck tn my past.  I am no longer in my 20s and 30s.  Now that I am in my 40s, I have grown older and wiser.  I have learned that as a person in my early 40s, I am young enough, but I am not so young that I cannot learn from the mistakes I have made in the past, not even the more recent past.  All I have is the present moment and plans to make about the rest of my life.  If my current path doesn't pan out, then be thankful for the moment and learn from it.  I have learned that that is all I can do.

"Shackles" by Mary Mary



Whoo!
It sure is hot out here
Ya know?
I don't mind thought
Just glad to be free
Know what I'm saying, uh!
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
(What'cha wanna do?)
I just wanna praise you
(Yeah, yeah)
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
(Uh feel me?)
And I'm gonna praise you
(What'cha gon do?)
I'm gonna praise you
In the corners of mind
I just can't seem to find a reason to believe
That I can break free
Cause you see I have been down for so long
Feel like the hope is gone
But as I lift my hands, I understand
That I should praise you through my circumstance
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you
Everything that could go wrong
All went wrong at one time
So much pressure fell on me
I thought I was gon lose my mind
But I know you wanna see
If I will hold on through these trials
But I need you to lift this load
Cause I can't take it anymore
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you
Been through the fire and the rain
Bound in every kind of way
But God has broken every chain
So let me go right now
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you
[repeat x3]
Take them off
What'cha gonna do, yeah
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you

No longer stuck in the past

Right now, I have come realize that I have been living in the past for far too long.  It has held me back from what I am supposed and need to do not what I want to do.  I have wanted to go back to school.  I have not finished school and I wished to go back.  I have made mistakes and missteps, and have committed sins.  How many people know that living in sin can hold us back?  I realized that I have limited God over the years.  It has been because I have been stuck in the past.  I am at an age where I wish to discover new things.  I am a grown up, yet I have not progressed.  It is as if I am still a youth.  I have felt bad about myself for years, but now, I want to stop living in the past.  The past is gone.  It is no more.  Those mistakes are what i have allowed to hold me back.  My life and life in general, is too precious to stay comfortable.  It is time for me to get out of my comfort zone.  That would make things so much freer.

Changing the Past

Changing The Past

© Donna more by Donna
Published on July 2011
The past is the past for a reason
That is where it is supposed to stay
But some cannot let it go
In their heads it eats away

Until all their focus becomes
The person that they used to be
The mistakes they made in their life
Oh, if only they could see

That you cannot change what happened
No matter how hard you try
No matter how much you think about it
No matter how much you cry

What happens in your lifetime
Happens for reasons unknown
So you have to let the cards unfold
Let your story be shown

Don't get wrapped up in the negative
Be happy with what you have been given
Live for today not tomorrow
Get up, get out and start living

Because the past is the past for a reason
It's been and now it is gone
So stop trying to think of ways to fix it
It's done, it's unchangeable, move on

In their heads it eats away

Until all their focus becomes
The person that they used to be
The mistakes they made in their life
Oh, if only they could see

That you cannot change what happened
No matter how hard you try
No matter how much you think about it
No matter how much you cry

What happens in your lifetime
Happens for reasons unknown
So you have to let the cards unfold
Let your story be shown

Don't get wrapped up in the negative
Be happy with what you have been given
Live for today not tomorrow
Get up, get out and start living

Because the past is the past for a reason
It's been and now it is gone
So stop trying to think of ways to fix it
It's done, it's unchangeable, move on

"Getting outside of myself"..

I have a confession to make.  I have a crush on a guy.  I have wondered if I were too old to have a crush on a guy.  I am over 40 and I wish to be married someday.  I thought I was a grown up and as far as a number, I am.  However, there is a part of me that is still childish and self absorbed.  I tend to be a selfish person at times.  I often pray more for myself than I do for other people.  That is just so sad.  I am a Christian.  How can I be so self absorbed?  My real guess is that I have great difficulty praying for other people.  I am always in a hurry to leave.  I lack patience since it is not one of my virtues.  I want to learn and grow and finally grow up.  I have become too concerned with my own life and wrapped up in my own problems.  Ironically, I am writing about myself in this blog right now.  Not only is it time for me to stop being so self absorbed but to start seeing myself and the world for what it truly is and see people for who they truly are.  I have formed opinions based on romantic notions or on what I have heard.  Sadly I have realized that after all of these years that it is no way to live.

My life in my 40s

It has obviously been a while since I have blogged any entries.  Sometimes there comes a time in a person's life when one has to bite the bullet.  This is my moment of biting the bullet and create a few blog entries. I have just been exhausted mentally and just stopped caring.  I don't know if it has gotten mundane or something else.  I have been this way for a while now.  It has been a long while.  I have gotten older and wiser, but the truth is, I cannot change the past and there are things that I wish to have back.  What I'm saying is while I wish that I would have the drive and energy I once had, I don't want to go back to that nor do I wish to be less wise than I am now.  I finally realize that I am typing this, I finally realize what it means to, while I am still young, my youth is gone.  I am at an age where with age, comes wisdom and a greater confidence than I have ever known.  I want to be more committed to my goals and start caring again.  I am at an age where I have the best of all worlds.

"Walk Right Now" by The Jacksons



Here, when all my work is done, babe
She calls and she says
Dear, can I come
I say to her
That you know our love has gone
But agressive heart
No, really not the one
She comes to the door
Crying at my feet
Guilt shines in her eyes
As she slowly sinks in deep

You know our love couldn't last forever
Persuade your way
But you ain't clever
I close the door and I say never

(I don't care)
What you're saying
(Walk right now)
I ain't playing
(Love elsewhere)
For you I'm praying
(Don't look back)
You ain't staying

Here, I'm crying
I can't sleep
I sigh
'Cause I thought this would never be
I say ooh
I'm screaming out for someone
And now she's knochin' on the door for me
She just won't leave me alone
She wants to speak with me
And persuade me in her arms
And now she's calling on the phone for me
Oh, just won't leave me alone

Deep down inside she's trying to be clever
To love once more then leave me forever
I close the door and I say never

(I don't care)
What you're saying
(Walk right now)
I ain't playing
(Love elsewhere)
For you I'm praying
(Don't look back)
You ain't staying

(I don't care)
What you're saying
(Walk right now)
What you're doing to me
(Love elsewhere)
What you're doing to me
(Don't look back)
Wooo!

I try so hard to cope with you
I can't bear the things you put me through
To love as friends
No, I wish that we could see
But persuasive heart
Just won't let pure friendship be

You know our love couldn't last forever
Persuade your way
But you ain't clever
I close the door and I say never

(I don't care)
What you're saying
(Walk right now)
I ain't playing
(Love elsewhere)
For you I'm praying
(Don't look back)
You ain't staying

(I don't care)
What you're saying
(Walk right now)
I ain't playing
(Love elsewhere)
For you I'm praying
(Don't look back)
What you're doing to me

(I don't care)
What you're doing to me
(Walk right now)
What you're doing to me
(Love elsewhere)
What you're doing to me
(Don't look back)
Wooo!

No, babe

(I don't care)
(Walk right now)
(Love elsewhere)
(Don't look back)
(I don't care)
(Walk right now)
(Love elsewhere)
(Don't look back)
(I don't care)

"Mind the Gap" by Nabiha



Isn't it funny
I like to dance when I'm on my own
And whenever it's sunny, yeah
You know I don't wanna stay at home
I fly in my dreams almost every night
And I'mma be down with Miss Marple for life, eh
It's the incidental things
That makes me who I am

Mind the gap, mind the girl
Have another drink on me
Grab a seat, in the world
Yeah have it your way
I don't give a damn about the looks I bear
Even when it snows I'm wearing flowers in my hair
Mind the gap, mind the girl

Laughin' is easy
But I cry when I watch the news
Not everything's peachy, no
But just keep a good attitude
My friends know I always run late on a plan
And I like a good man with humor and warm hands
It's the incidental things
That makes me who I am

Mind the gap, mind the girl
Have another drink on me
Grab a seat, in the world
Yeah have it your way
I don't give a damn about the looks I bear
Even when it snows I'm wearing flowers in my hair
Mind the gap, mind the girl

Gotta do somethin' crazy
At least once a day
It's good for you baby
Sugar for the brain
Peace

C'mon y'all

Mind the gap, mind the girl
Have another drink on me
Grab a seat, in the world
Yeah have it your way
I don't give a damn about the looks I bear
Even when it snows I'm wearing flowers in my hair
Mind the gap, mind the girl

"That's Why" by The Party-MMC


Ha ha ha ha
Well I tell ya
How old are we again?

[Chorus:]
That's why (baby, baby, baby)
That's why I've got to see you again (see you again girl)
That's why (baby, baby, baby)
That's why I've got to see you again (see you again)
Sometimes I get lost in my confusion
It's something that I need to talk about
Old romance is just an old illusion
Don't you know we could have worked this out
I see your face - and not just 'cause I'm lonely

I can't erase the touch of your hand
It's you I need and you that I want only
I'm tryin' baby just as hard as I can

[Repeat chorus]

Baby if you'll only take a listen
To my heart then I know you'll understand
One moment is worth all the forgiving
I'll never leave you darling never again
I've reached out to wherever you may be now
Why you turn your back I can't understand
So now I'm searchin' for words to make you see how
I love you just as much as any man can

[Repeat chorus]

So listen to me girl - we've been around the world
And we still need each other desperately
I'll make it up to you - do what you want me to
If you will bring your lovin' back to me
I see your face - and not just 'cause I'm lonely
Just want to feel the touch of your hand
It's you I need and you that I want only
I'm tryin' darlin' just as hard as I can
Listen girl, I need you desperately
I'll make it up to you
So listen to me girl - we've been around the worldand we still need each other desperately
And I'll make it up to you - do all that I can do
If you will bring your lovin' back to me

[Repeat chorus]

Later on..

I have tried to consume a 1200 calorie a day diet.  However, that has been more difficult than I thought.  I would usually write this down in another blog, but I realize that it will be okay to write in this blog as well.  I do complain a lot and I was just too tired to fill in anything.  As you can tell from reading this, I am just too tired.  My brain hurts.  I will be okay though.

My life's plans

I have prayed about my life.  The truth is, I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.  I wish to plan out my life.  The sad part is that I have no clue where to begin.  I realize that life seemed to be past over.  I am woman in her 40s who still doesn't know what she wants when she grows up.  I am concerned about this.  This has been an issue with me for a while.  I realize that maybe I should have done this years ago.  Well, now is as good a time as any.

Personal interpretation of Deuteronomy 12:1-4

  1“These are the statutes and the judgments which you shall carefully observe in the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you to possess as long as you live on the earth. 2“You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess serve their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 3“You shall tear down their altars and smash their sacred pillars and burn their Asherim with fire, and you shall cut down the engraved images of their gods and obliterate their name from that place. 4“You shall not act like this toward the LORD your God."

I have not only shown respect to the Lord by the way I was acting.  I didn't realize that idolatry was a sin that I have committed.  I have since repented of that sin.  I didn't realize that allowing myself to be caught up in the things of the world would constitute idolatry, but it doesn't.  Not spending enough time could be an example of idolatry.  I am very guilty of that form of idolatry.  My time like other idolaters has not been spent on the Lord, but on whoever or whatever is in the world.  That whoever and whatever was a high place that needed to be broken down.  The altars wasn't' in my house but in my mind.  That was not about anxiety, so I won't use that as an excuse.  It was about a choice that I made, which did in turn, cause even greater anxiety.  The Lord wants the divided attention of all of us, no matter where we are at.  My hope is that I am not misinterpreting the Word of God.  Being sacred is about being of God, not of the world.  I have not kept some things sacred and I have since repented of this.  I take full responsibility of my sins.  This I am writing because the Lord is Jealous and wants not just our worship, but our undivided attention.

Make (ALL) America Great Again

My hope is that the President of the US will be led by the Lord.  I believe that he was put here for a reason.  Do the Russians really have anything to the fact that President Obama will be no more? How about us voters.  Didn't we have enough votes to elect Donald Trump.  I don't know how he will do, but my hope is that he will take his job seriously.  It is a thankless enough job.  I am leery of politicians, so my prayer is that Mr. Trump will truly make ALL of America Great Again.

Currently, I am...

Right now, I have some serious rib pain.  Okay, it is on my back, but still it is painful with some movements more so than others.  I am also watching the NFL Draft.  I wonder which team will choose which college player.  Who knows?  It will be interesting.  Whoever becomes the number one draft pick will be a lucky one.  However, that does not mean he will have a blessed career. Sometimes, it is about the luck of the draw.  Other times, it is about actually making the right choices in life.  They often determine which way each of us will go.  In eternity, there are only two directions: up or down.

Feeling Overwhelmed is Nothing New by Yesenia Ramos

I get overwhelmed by the idea that
there are people much more successful, happier, and powerful than me
It makes me feel smaller than the smallest grain of sand in the big sahara
Because I can't be such things
I get overwhelmed by the idea of looking different, being a outsider
It's a helpless feeling
Like a fish out of water
Like a newborn baby
Like a deer in headlights
Lost, trapped, confined, unimportant, imprisoned

I get overwhelmed by the fact that my disease is life-shortening
The fear of imminent death stabs my mind and thoughts
It has me desperate to find a cure for this monstrous disability
Every faith-healer, I bet you I've gone to
Hoping I'll be one of those miraculous cases of people who turn out to walk; those cases that come on TV
Always in the end the bad starts to overwhelm me intensely
My mind fills up with thoughts of sadness
I want to be happy
But i don't know how to keep happiness permanently
Nothing in my life is permanent
Not even my abilities
I get overwhelmed 365 days a year

Jealousy and True Love

Psalm 31:23

"Love the LORD, all his faithful people! The LORD preserves those who are true to him, but the proud he pays back in full."

Love is something that is not jealous.  Furthermore, jealousy is about fear and about coveting.  I guess.  I am trying to be wise.  Furthermore, I am trying to be right about the interpretation of God's Word.  One of the worst thing anyone can do is to misinterpret scripture.  That I believe is why false prophets and false teachers are flourishing in the planet.  They deceive the flock by twisting the Word of God for often times financial gain.  Where is the love in deception, much less jealousy?  The only jealousy that is not about fear and coveting is about the Jealousy of God.  We are to not just be true, but to love God with all of our hearts, souls, minds, and strengths.  All of it.  God is a Jealous God who wants us to divide all of our attentions to Him.  After all, Jesus paid all of His attention to us. That is what I finally realize today.  We as Christians are to be Jealous for the Lord, because He is Jealous towards us.  That is what true love is all about.

I Have a Testimony


My Testimony:

Here is my testimony:
Hello, I have been writing a testimony about my life. I first became born again in 1994. It has been an interesting journey. I thanked God and still do, thank Him for saving me. My life has had many ups and downs. My testimony will be like many Christians who have been diagnosed with an emotional disorder. 

I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder on February 19, 1994. I was at first diagnosed with depression because of what has been going on with me. Within a week or two, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I was actually relieved. For a long time, I felt like I was going crazy. I had suicidal thoughts almost on a daily basis. My personality changed with my moods. My relationships with others suffered. My grades went down. I would walk out of class and oftentimes, I wouldn't make even show up for class. Not long before, I had never walked out of class unless there was an excuse such as a medical emergency. My grades were decent-I was on the honor roll. I graduated in the top 5 of my high school class. I was a happy 18-year old who enjoyed going to college. Life was good. However, I didn't know that depression during those days would be a precursor to my worst year ever.

Life became a total wreck. By this time, people began to turn on me. I have thought of elaborate ways that I wanted to die. I had a rough time dealing with what was going on around me. I began to obsess about a particular guy that I got along with. All of a sudden, a little crush turned into an obsession. I made a fool out of myself. The worst part of it was that others knew as well. Everything seemed negative. I did care about what others think. But then, I started praying a long prayer to God. What I didn't realize is that that prayer would be the beginning to a journey that would forever change my life. Things haven't improved, not until September 10, 1994. I prayed to ask Jesus to come into my heart twice on advice of a friend. I wasn't sure if He heard me. But that day was a miracle in itself. I didn't think I was well-liked or had many friends. But then, I realized who my real friends are. I am thankful that God showed me who they were that way. I really needed them then. 

What I didn't realize was that I needed God. It was around 1:00 or so that afternoon and I went up to a friend's room. I knew that she was a born-again Christian and I started talking to her about all of my problems. I met two other girls, one of them was a freshmen at that time. I literally cried a river and poured out my heart. I was a lonely young woman. I knew it. Then she asked me if I believe that Jesus died for me and that if I believed that Jesus rose on the third day. I told her that I did. Then she mentioned the word "friends". It clicked. That was all I remember from that question. However, I have told her that I will get saved later on that I wanted to go somewhere. Her warning was to me that tomorrow was promised to no one. These were not her exact words, but that is what she meant. I am so glad that I did not hesitate. I prayed with her to receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I saw a mental picture of cherub-like angels on a blue background. It was a mental painting almost. Everything seemed different. Things were brighter. One of the girls remarked that I even looked different. God took my pain away. He had started me on a new journey. And for that I praise God. Life is better. I still have my share of problems, but all Christians have their share of problems. Christians will be persecuted for their faith. I went from barely reading the Bible from reading and studying the Bible daily. I prayed mostly in need, but I pray daily. I have changed. Within a year from that day, I transferred to a new school and graduated two years later. I have learned how to handle my problems better. Over time, I have grown to depend on God daily. I have become interested in different things. I have become a different person. I have become wiser, and I thank God for that.

Random musings

I am now listening to Sia's "Chandelier".  This has been my song this past weekend.  I get to ramble and ramble on.

Seth Rollins is so fine.  Too bad he has become a mere distraction.  I never thought I would have a crush on him.  I sound so rude, didn't I?  Sorry, but he is still fine.

I am okay with my weight.  However, I have to admit that I need to do more work before 9AM all day.  Sure, I'm not a soldier, so to all soldiers, thank you for your service.  You are the reason why our country is still free.  Thank You.

I am still listening to Sia's "Chandelier".  Where have I been?

Today is Easter.  Thank You, Jesus, last, but certainly not least.

Prophecies about Jesus

"From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life."
Matthew 16:21

"When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men."
Matthew 17:22

"He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again."
Mark 8:31

"They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him."
Mark 10:32

"Who has believed what he has heard from us?1
And to whom has hthe arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For he grew up before him like a young plant,
iand like a root out of dry ground;
jhe had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 kHe was despised and rejected2 by men,
a man of sorrows 3 and acquainted with4 grief;5
and as one from whom men hide their faces6
he was despised, and lwe esteemed him not.
4 mSurely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
nsmitten by God, and afflicted.
5 oBut he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
pand with his wounds we are healed.
6 qAll we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
rand the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
syet he opened not his mouth;
tlike a ulamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, vwho considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
9 And they made his grave with the wicked
wand with a rich man in his death,
although xhe had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet yit was the will of the Lord to crush him;
he has put him to grief;7
zwhen his soul makes8 an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
athe will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see9 and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall bthe righteous one, my servant,
cmake many to be accounted righteous,
dand he shall bear their iniquities.
12 eTherefore I will divide him a portion with the many,10
fand he shall divide the spoil with the strong,11
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
gyet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors."
Isaiah 53:1-12

9 I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11 which said: “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis,Philadelphia and Laodicea.”
12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstandswas someone like a son of man,[d] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars,and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
19 “Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later. 20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels[e] of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
Revelation 1:9-19

"A Girl Like You" by Edwyn Collins

  "A Girl Like You" by Edwyn Collins 

I've never known a girl like you before
Now, just like in a song from days of yore
Here you come a-knocking, knocking on my door
And I've never met a girl like you before

You give me just a taste so I want more
Now my hands are bleeding and my knees are raw
'Cause now you got me crawling, crawling on the floor
And I've never known a girl like you before

You made me acknowledge the devil in me
I hope to God I'm talking metaphorically
Hope that I'm talking alegorically
Know that I'm talking about the way I feel
And I've never known a girl like you before
Never, never, never, never
Never known a girl like you before

This old town's changed so much
Don't feel that I belong
Too many protest singers
Not enough protest songs
And now you've come along
Yes, you've come along
And I've never met a girl like you before

Grant me patience, Lord.

Right now, my mouse has the nasty habit of freezing up.  I hate when I have to fix up this issue.  It is a necessary evil, but it has to be done.  I realize that despite that, I have a few problems of my own.  I mean, a few other issues that I have to contend with.  Lord, I could use all of the help I can get. I ask that You would grant me the patience that I so very need..

Blondes with dark skin








It may be hypocritical of me to even have an opinion on this subject.  I am a black person who would love to have blonde hair, even for a little while.  There has always been a person of color who has often been accused of self-hatred because they dye their hair blonde.  As I wrote that last sentence, I notice the hypocrisy.  Should it matter if a woman of color with dark skin dye her hair blonde?  No, it shouldn't matter.  If blonde hair, like any other color looks good on her and if it doesn't "wash her out", then nobody should say anything.  Since when does blonde equal only one race or color?  There are Arabs and other Middle Easterners, South Asians, Melanesians, Australian Aborigines, East Asians and those from Africa who are blondes.  I use this to add to what I believe is true.  These women are not white and I feel that because they are black women who dye their hair blonde does not give anyone the right to pass judgment or criticize.  No blonde of color should have to justify dying their hair blonde.  Blonde is a hair color, though largely inherited, but it is only a color at the end of the day.

Last night's WWE Raw after Wrestlemania


















Those are only parts of what has happened last night on RAW.  Because of this, I look forward to Smackdown.  Unlike RAW, Smackdown only lasts two hours instead of three.  Hopefully the crowd would be as raucous (for a lack of a better term) as they were last night.  The crowd was live last night.  Either one loved the crowd or hated the crowd.  One thing is for sure: nearly all of them hated Roman Reigns.
