There are different things in life that can rob you and I of our “joy” if we allow them to…be it financial struggles, broken relationships, “Religion” instead of spiritual truth, people not believing in you or your vision, feelings of unworthiness, physical battles “the cares of this world” etc….and the list goes on. BUT In those times, we need to take a deep breath and remind ourselves that GOD desires for us to WIN and He’s already paid the ultimate price for us to do so! Therefore, in different seasons of life, whether things are going great or if we’re experiencing challenging times, may the Lord grace us to COUNT IT ALL JOY as we get connected and STAY connected with Him…Knowing…if HE be for us “who or what” can stand against us!
…So before my hubbie Terrence of UrbanMultiTracks.com – R&B Hip-Hop Pop Urban-Gospel Beats and I headed out for our date night last week, we had to handle some Biz in the studio with our homie Donny D-MAUB Harper! He’s featured on my new Single “Joy, Joy, Joy” (On iTunes & Other digital stores 3/1/14) from my up coming CD “Diamond In The Making”. T, laced this joint!!! Meditation: True Joy is birthed by hope, sustained by Faith and expressed through Love. Such JOY serves to remind us that God is on our side! During moments or seasons in your life fam, when some level of disappointment or sadness is experienced- IF tempered with a confident expectation…realization that it “won’t last always” and that the sun WILL return in the midst of the “darkness” (situation)-you will be strengthened by “The joy of the Lord” (Neh 8:10) Trust God with your life and be determined to go after all HE has for YOU in 2014 and beyond!
I am so honored and just stoked about the way you all have responded to my SafeAuto commercial and jingle that won the SafeAuto Do The Jingle 2013 contest. A lot of you have commented via twitter and facebook as well as on Youtube to let me know that you wish that the song was available in digital stores for digital downloads, well I wanna to let you know that it is not only now available but its the full version and not just the shorter version that you hear on the commercial you know the full version, the one that gives you that (singing) “Stepped in the car heading out of town but before I hit the road I gotta strap it down. Mind at ease rolling fancy free cause I know I’m insured when I turn the key Cause I made a” (singing stops)…Well I can’t give you no more, I need you to download it (lol).
Serious though, I will love it if you would take a moment to download the full version of ”Got Me Covered” from iTunes Amazon or Bandcamp. Please also rate and review on iTunes and Amazon (no purchase necessary).
Thanks so much and you have a wonderful prosperous 2014!
I awakened to this “Winter Wonderland” this morning and thought “How Beautiful”…and was amazed all over again at the Sovereignty of God… the Ultimate Artist! I was captivated by the fact that even though the sun light is not shining (hidden by the clouds) and the trees are barren…His Glory is still reflected. This thought came to me in the form of a poem…
Winter…though sun not shining on this day and daylight slightly dim,
still trees with extended branches in awe give praise to HIM! Selah
See some times, things may seem “dim” in your life because the sun doesn’t appear to be shining, and there may be some things you’ve labored for…worked hard at, yet the fruit of those labors hasn’t fully manifested yet…in the midst just GIVE HIM PRAISE anyhow…KNOWING that He’s still in complete control!… and in due season YOUR harvest is sure to come! May we remember in 2014 (just like these trees with extended branches) to lift our arms…and give HIM the praise HE is so worthy of…simply for being who He is! #opentheeyesofmyheartLord
