SUNDAY MORNING PRAISE

“He Has His Hands On You” (with lyrics) by Marvin Sapp is one of those songs that I could listen to all day. Listen to the lyrics and how masterfully this song is put together. The song has been out since around 2013 but this is a great song. Hopefully it will help to usher the spirit into your day….

Isaiah 48:13-14King James Version (KJV)

13 Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

JOY TO THE WORLD!!!

Christmas is in the air!!! Can you feel it? With just a few more days until CHRISTmas 2016, I thought I’d let Whitney Houston help usher the spirit of CHRISTmas in with her rendition of “JOY TO THE WORLD”. What are your big plans for the holidays? Hopefully each of you will remember the reason for the season is CHRIST!!!

10 MORE DAYS…

There are ten more days until Christmas 2016 and I’m celebrating by posting “JOY” by the GEORGIA MASS CHOIR featuring KIRK FANKLIN. Kirk looks much younger in this video and he actually sings on this one. We usually hear him talk through most songs but his vocals seem on point here. I wonder why he doesn’t use his voice more. Thanks to loyal reader A. Renae for sharing this youtube.com video. Hopefully you’re in the mood for some “JOY”. ‘Tis the season……………..
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!!!

GET REAL…

The above music is Donnie McClurkin’s “Great is Your Mercy.”  This is another one of those songs that helps to put life in perspective.  Too often there are those who think that everything is about them and what they are doing when in the big scheme of things it is God’s grace and mercy that even allows us to function daily.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5 NIV.  The song is several years old but it certainly has a timeless meaning.  Let me know what you think……….

GOOD FRIDAY


Yeah folks, this is the mood I’m in right now. Hopefully you can grove with me on this. Remember Oleta Adams? This is her version of “Holy is the Lamb.” Of course it is very appropriate today and really forever. Here’s hoping each of you have a GOOD FRIDAY. I’m listening to this song as I type and it is really awesome!!!

ON A MISSION…

TYLER PERRY AND “THE PASSION”

 

The Passion

I got this email from Tyler Perry this morning.  Check it out and click on the link below if you’re interested in going or participating:

Hey TJ,

So next weekend I will be hosting and narrating The Passion, live on FOX. When I was asked to do this I thought, “wait a second, FOX is gonna do what?” If you’re like me at that time, then you’re wondering “what is The Passion?” Well, let me try to explain. It’s not a musical like Grease or The Wiz, this is the story of Jesus Christ’s last hours on earth, told as if He were on earth today. It’s a biblical story told in modern times, set to some of today’s most popular songs preformed throughout and all around New Orleans. There will also be people, like you and me, carrying a 20-foot illuminated cross through the streets. Talk about letting your little light shine.

The reason I wanted to be involved was because I was shocked to find out how many people in this country don’t know the story of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. I was also shocked at the amount of people under 25 who don’t believe in anything. Our world has changed so much.

But The Passion is an amazing opportunity to retell this amazing story. My prayer and hope is that it opens a dialogue that starts a revival all over this country.

The Passion is about love, inclusion and compassion for all mankind. It’s for believers and also nonbelievers. It’s for all faiths and all backgrounds. This story doesn’t just belong to one group, it belongs to humanity. Love, forgiveness and compassion, those are things that are universal to us all. We all need them and The Passion will deliver it right into your home. When was the last time you can say you turned on the TV and that happened?

I’m calling on my audience and believers all over this country to help support this show. Please help us send a message to Hollywood that we want to see more TV shows that leave us lifted, inspired and changed. Shows that leave us hopeful.

I want to also say thank you to FOX and the creator and producers of The Passion. Thank you for bringing some balance to TV.

And I also want to say thank you to YOU. I hope you will watch and pray for us and this show. It can be quite special if we all get behind it in spirit and in faith.

If you want to see it live in New Orleans or help literally carry the cross through the streets, you can click on this link. Tickets are free here: http://thepassion.com/participate/

God bless,

Tyler
