Wednesday Worship: Forgiveness

My heart remains heavy in light of the Travyon Martin verdict.  Honestly, I'm both saddened and angry.  Very angry.

I want this verdict to be a beginning, not an end.  A beginning of increased voter participation, increased eye on state legislation, increased civic duty by way of sitting on juries, etc.

I want the nation to go through the pain and agony that it will take to come to terms with its albatross of race relations.

I want to know my boys are safe.


I know what God is calling each and everyone of us who wants five minutes with George Zimmerman to do.  It's called forgiveness.

Forgiveness is hard.

It requires us to let go off our anger.

It requires us to accept the same imperfect humanity in ourselves in others.

It requires love.

I'm not there.  Gotta be honest.  That's the truth.

But this song from Matthew West, Forgiveness, reminds me what I'm called to do:

Don't know how long it will take.  Please be patient with me.

Peace & Blessings,

Wednesday Worship: Testimony

Can't nobody tell it like me,
Can't nobody say it like me,
You don't know the story like me,
It's my, it's my testimony

Can't praise Him like me, say,
Can't nobody praise Him for me,
He's given me the victory
And now I got a, I got a testimony.

Love, love the words of this song from Anthony Brown & group therAPy (their spelling), not to mention the bouncy groove.

Bouncing and testimony all wrapped up together?  Love it.  Because your testimony should lift you up, like a buoy atop the sea, and thereby lift others.

When I think of the goodness of Jesus and all that He's done for me...

Do you have a testimony?  Are you bouncing with it?

Peace & Blessings,

Wednesday Worship: Jesus Will

Who opens doors that I cannot see?
Who will make all my decisions for me?

He'll fight my battles,
If I keep still.

I know that He will,
Jesus will.

More from gospel singer Anita Wilson, a jazzy remake of a James Cleveland classic.

Isn't there some peace in knowing?

Peace & Blessings,

Wednesday Worship: All About You

Through Christ I can do all things.
It really doesn't matter if the enemy 
Tries to harm me, no weapon formed shall be able to prosper.
I will let my light so shine so everyone can see, not me,
But He started a good work in me.
He shall complete it.

It's all about you, it's all about you
It's all about you,
About you, about you

Riding in the car with Hubby and this came on via his phone.  Had to look it up.  Already an Anita Wilson fan.  Now more so.

Peace & Blessings,
