This past weekend was great. As indicated yesterday, there was a church service I went to back home to (North Carolina) where they honored MY MOM. It was really great. All of my siblings showed up as well as other family members. Mom was thrilled. The entire service was great. On the way back to Atlanta, I was able to tune into different radio stations along the way. One station that I happened upon was a Christian radio station and the dj began to talk about her struggle with stomach cancer. She thanked the audience for their continued prayers and then she referenced one of my favorite bible scriptures:
◄ Philippians 4:6 ►
King James Version: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
After I heard this scripture, it made me think about one of my other favorite scriptures and it also made me think about how similar they are.
◄ Matthew 9:29 ►
King James Version:Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
Everything on this planet boils down to love and having faith in GOD. I don’t know who this is speaking to this week but I really hope it blesses you as much as it has blessed me. Again I am posting ” The Call” by Isabell Davis. This song really does it for me. I just can’t hear this song enough. Enjoy your week.
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY IN YOUR LIFE BY MADEA
Tyler Perry uses his character Madea (played by Tyler) to give poignant messages. Although Madea “acts” a fool, don’t be deceived. There is a tremendous amount of wisdom here if you listen and receive the message. This one above is no exception. Jump in and check it out!!!
Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.
George Bernard Shaw
Basically this is saying….BEWARE OF ALTERNATIVE FACTS…….lol
When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world. …Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I AM that is deeper than name and form.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.” “By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
Third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”
It requires wisdom to understand wisdom: the music is nothing if the audience is deaf.
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
I’m posting this more for myself than anyone else. This is a song I heard for the first time last year and I tried for the longest to find it or who sang it. I could not remember enough about it to even pull it up online. Last night I heard it on the radio and I gathered enough information to go online and find out more about it. The song is called “What They See is What They’ll Be” by Kathleen Bertrand. It is a very laid back gospel tune but I’m more impressed by the lyrics than anything else. It speaks great wisdom to all of us as we live our lives. You never know whose life you’re impacting each and every day. There are so many people, especially these younger kids, who are so impressionable. Just as the chorus in the song says…”What They See Is What They’ll Be.”
What are you putting in place for them to see???
