Songs…

…I liked while working in DCB(Dylan’s Candy Bar)

“It’s not unusual … to see me cry…” by Tom Jones, Written about the time of the 1960’s.

“…if it’s love that you’re feeling, I second that emotion…” : Song by: The Miracles Song: I Second That Emotion. Release date: 2010

“…I don’t want nobody, if I can’t get you…” Song by the Bee Gees. Release Date: 1979

I laughed at these songs when I heard the lyrics. Having asked a coworker what decade the music is from she said the 80’s. Time to search to see if it’s true. Having searched, one song was released in 1979. The others I’m not completely sure about. It was a quick search. Lyrics that were so interesting and clean in a way, compared to today’s non-Christian music.

Music: If You Aint’ In It – Danny Gokey

I learned in a difficult matter this year that if God is not in it, whatever it is, won’t work.

“…everything will just fall apart if You ain’t in in…”

Don’t forget God in whatever you do or you will end up losing something. Either losing that thing or your soul, I don’t know what you may lose. Just remember that all sin results in death. [For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 NKJV]

This is a cool song though. The lyrics are on point….

Here’s a lyric video. The spelling of the word “right,” is “write” which I believe is incorrect. Yet, this video has the gist of the lyrics.

Music: Your Great Name Todd Dulaney

This song reminds me of my home church which I have not been to in such a long time!

Jesus has a great name. Hallelujah! It gives me joy praising Him and praising Him with this song. Despite what I’m thinking about, joy comes when I focus mainly on the Lord, my Lord.

*T has a relationship with music…it is growing. 🙂

I’m free when I call You Jesus

I’m free when i call Your name

Hallelujah!

Tuesdays Devotional

Today’s devotional was a funny one. A king who is said to be filled with pride says a command to have his chair be placed near, very near to the tide, without getting wet. He then commands the tide to not wet him or to not wet him, BUT the tide keeps rising!

The rest of the devotional is pretty much written like this. However, in the end we read that God is the master of the oceans, the waters, the skies, the sun and the stars; He is even master over the clouds and certainly master over us.

The Our Daily Bread Devotional for March 7th 2017 was titled Ruler of the Waves with scripture Job 38:1-18.

I tend to see this part of Job as a humbling section of the Bible. Truly, I believe only God has the answers to the questions He asks Job.

As I wrote this I choose to include a song from YouTube. Enjoy 🙂

You Are My Master by NYC’s Finest, Whatz Good Entertainment

Brian sang this song live and a cappella when we were at a charismatic Christian (Catholic) conference, it sounded better then how it is heard in this video.

Music: Cast My Cares by Finding Favour

Based on Scripture verse:
1 Peter 5:7 “…casting all your care upon Him for He cares for you.”

K-Love Behind the music:

Song with Lyrics:

It’s seems so easy to post on Facebook or any other social media platform about what’s bugging us. Sometimes we may pray about the situation, yet still feel an urge to post. For me it’s knowing it will be seen (or heard). But I realized just because what I post is seen or heard by others doesn’t mean that’s the way God is going to take care or solve the problem (unless the Holy Spirit says to do so).

For instance, I could post an article about why my boyfriend should buy flowers for me, he may see it and perhaps start buying flowers for me but it may not be a lasting change. If I cast my care to God, God may show me the bigger picture and he can work in my boyfriend (or me) with what’s going on in his heart (or my heart). My point is sometimes we take things to social media to vent or be seen or heard or to try to fix something, but God says to go to Him with every care.

(Think about this: Can Facebook really handle our cares?)

It may seem like our prayer falls on deaf ears, but that’s when we have to remember God’s Word(He hears our cries, He cares about us, is willing and able to fight for us) and repent for our sins (just in case. Isaiah 59:1,2).

It took remembering God for me to not post about the personal things that are an issue to me and won’t be solved right this minute as I wanted them to be.

Remebering God encouraged me today. Praising Him for His goodness allowed me to be patient and wait on Him to solve the issue without my intervening or show me what to do next.

I pray this song encourages you when you need it, in Jesus’ name.
Much love, be blessed. 🙂
