I’m Gonna Be Ready: Yolanda Adams | OFFICIAL MIME VIDEO was sent to me by loyal reader A. Renae.  I’ve always loved this song but this is the first time that I’ve seen this video and it’s awesome. Enjoy the rest of the week.


Matthew 5:14,16

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

 

WHITNEY HOUSTON’S DAUGHTER DEAD AT 22

After months of drama, Bobbi Kristina,  is dead at the age of 22.  Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s only daughter, was found face down in a bath tub  just days before the third anniversary of mother Whitney Houston’s similar death.  She had been placed in a medically induced coma apparently due to some swelling in the brain.  The cause of her collapse has yet to be determined.

It has been almost six months since she the bathtub incident and many have speculated about the cause.  All of that is irrelevant at this time and hopefully they will let her rest in peace.  Bobbi Kristina was surrounded by her family, at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia when she died.

 

DO YOU BELIEVE?

When I saw this clip, I definitely wanted to share it with you.  This ought to be a great series presented by OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network).  It talks about the one thing that we hear or face every single day of our lives; belief.  When we talk about the word BELIEF, certainly GOD is the first thing that comes to mind.  There are some that claim that they do not believe in GOD but I find that hard to BELIEVE.  Check out this example:

I once worked with a gentleman who heard that I was a BELIEVER.  this gentleman approached me one day and told me that he did not BELIEVE in all of this fairy tale nonsense that was in the bible.  He said that he could in fact do exactly what he wanted to do.  He said that he could get out in the street and kill 20 people if he so desired.  I told him that he could only do this if GOD allowed it to happen.  He said that it had nothing to do with GOD.  I personally choose not to argue with fools and I ended the conversation.

Two years later, I pulled in the parking at work and before I could get out of my car, the same man approached me.  This time, he told me that his young daughter had been hospitalized and that things were not looking good for her.  He said, “when you go down on your knees tonight, send one up for me.”  I asked him, “who do you want me to send it up to?”  He looked confused and I reminded him that he did not BELIEVE in
GOD and of course he again asked me to pray for his daughter.  I think that people are convenient believers.

Back to the series called ‘BELIEF’ that Oprah is having on her network in October.   It really ought to be good.  Let me know what you think.

THE WISEST THING TO DO

Just this morning I heard Donnie McClurklin talking about how God is in control. I then signed on to my computer and I happened upon this particular blog that spoke about the wisest thing to do. It all goes hand in hand.  Hopefully you’re encouraged and inspired today!

Success Inspirers World

“Fast runners do not always win the race, and the brave do not always win the battle” (Eccl.9:11).

The ways of God are very hard to understand. It is not uncommon for bright sunshine to be followed immediately by a down pour of rain. The answers are not always straight.

The Bible says, “Wise men do not always get rich, and capable men do not always rise to high positions.” (Eccl. 9:11).

You cannot say what comes next in your life. God alone knows. Trusting him with your destiny is therefore the wisest thing to do.

FORMER NFL PLAYER’S MISTRESS KIDNAPPED/KILLED HIS WIFE

Walter Scott once said, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.” That statement is so relevant when it comes to this situation.

Former tight end #84 Buster Barnett of the Buffalo Bills was married to Sandra Barnett.  Buster also was in the midst of a 4-year affair with Lisa Brown.

Brown, 49, from Lithonia, Ga., had previous run-ins with the law, police said.

“Lisa Brown was actually on probation for kidnapping out of the state of Texas,” said Clayton County Police Capt. Richard Gandee . “She had kidnapped her child that she had lost custody of, and the jurisdiction down there had to track her for like three days to find her.”

According to reports Sandra Barnett was on the phone with a friend when Lisa Brown showed up at the front door.  Brown was driving a Dodge Durango owned by Buster Barnett.  Lisa Brown kidnapped Sandra Barnett.

An alert was put out for the vehicle on Wednesday.  Carroll County authorities spotted the Dodge Durango on Thursday and began a chase on Interstate 20 that spanned into Alabama. Alabama State Patrol troopers joined in when the chase crossed state lines. It ended in Alabama.   Brown suddenly stopped the Durango.  She then pulled out a gun and shot/killed Barnett… and then herself.

Carroll County officials say kidnapping suspect and

FLORIDA CHURCH SENDS $1000 COLLECTION LETTER TO SINGLE MOM

If you need a touch from God today…. send me a check for $1000 and I will send you a touch… from God.  That used to be a joke that some people used to make years ago after seeing some of the televangelists’ on television and watching how they operate.  There was an article on this blog called “Money And Church In The Now…” where I talked about the current state of the church and how it has turned into big business but now this:

A single Florida mother said she recently received a delinquency notice from a church that she joined about six months ago.  Candace Petterson said she received a letter from her church, Greater Mount Moriah Primitive Baptist Church, asking her to bring her “account up to date” by contributing $50 a month along with other assorted fees, so that she could remain in good standing and also to be able to vote on church matters.  She was also asked to pay a yearly anniversary fee of $250 and another $150 fee for Mount Moriah Day.  Part of this amount totaling $1000, would be set aside to pay off church debt.  The letter, which originated from assistant administrator Ladreda Spencer and Pastor B.R. Fulton Jr., also indicated that Petterson’s 11-year old daughter was also expected to pay a reduced amount.

WFTS-TV is reporting that church officials are acknowledging that they sent the letter but they have offered no additional information.  Fot those of you who are wondering why some people don’t and won’t go to church….. START HERE!

MID-WEEK INSPIRATION

Isaiah 12:4 NIV

In that day you will say:

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=PaGQA_ryKvU My thanks to loyal reader A. Renae for sending me this video.  It is Georgia Mass Choir singing “Look Where He Brought Me From”.  The truth is: we really don’t have to look very far.  We are often bombarded with the storms of life and God has a way of protecting us because HE alone is sovereign.  What that means is that He is all-seeing, all knowing, superior, matchless, and the list goes on and on.  HE has our best interests at heart and HE takes us from glory to glory.  This is a topic that I can talk about for a while… but I won’t.  Just know that he has indeed brought us all from a mighty long way and he has major plans for each one of us.  Hopefully you are inspired to trust in Him alone.  Enjoy your Mid-Week Inspiration!

HOMELESS MAN PLAYS PIANO

This homeless man’s life has now changed.  If you listen to him play the piano, you’ll understand why.  He may have an unkempt appearance but the talent that he has is certainly spectacular.  There’s been over 2 million views of him playing a piano after this video was posted on Facebook a couple of days ago.  Even though he obviously does not yet realize his own potential, he soon will.  Just like the man years ago, named Ted Williams with the golden voice, someone will soon find him and turn this talent into a money-making opportunity.  One of the thins that I always tell people about life on this planet is that everything you see, is not necessarily what you see……….
