Mourning Into Dancing

Mourning Into Dancing

Hey everybody,

I hope your day was fantastic. I had an extremely busy day at work ( will do a detailed blog on my busy work life soon ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and as I was sitting here catching up on my devotional, the scripture Psalms 30 came to me. It reads ( from the New Living Translation) :

1I will exalt you, LORD, for you rescued me
You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.
2O LORD my God, I cried to you for help,and you restored my health.
3You brought me up from the grave,a O LORD.You kept me from falling into the pit of death.
4Sing to the LORD, all you godly ones!Praise his holy name.
5For his anger lasts only a moment,but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night,but joy comes with the morning
6When I was prosperous, I said,โ€œNothing can stop me now!
โ€7Your favor, O LORD, made me as secure as a mountain.Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.
8I cried out to you, O LORD.I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,
9โ€œWhat will you gain if I die,if I sink into the grave?Can my dust praise you?Can it tell of your faithfulness?
10Hear me, LORD, and have mercy on me.Help me, O LORD.โ€
11You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,
12that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever!

Verses 5 and 11-12 are on replay in my mind right now!

ย Verse 5 serves as a reminder that things may seem tough right now ( weeping my endure for a night) but there is always light at the end of the tunnel.( joy comes in the morning)
Verse 11-12
are verses that show that God will turn all of our mourning into dancing or in otherย terms, turn an unhappy situation into a pleasant one. I am pleasantly reminded to give thanks to God for everything! I won’t be silent! I’m forever grateful

I don’t know who this message is for this evening, but I hope whoever is reading this is encouraged! Even If you don’t believe in what I do, remember that any day above ground is a good one! So take your lemons and turn it into lemonade!

We sang this song at church a few weeks back! Enjoy ( this isn’t my praise group but i’m not a huge fan of the Ron Kenoly arrangement…sorry )

Mood Music: Today I’m Jamming On….

Mood Music: Today I’m Jamming On….

A few songs have been ย on repeat for the last few days! So I’m jamming on them and decided to share ๐Ÿ™‚ ย The first one is an oldie but a goodie! It is James Fortune and Fiya, ” Holy Is Our God”. I just love this song and no matter how many years pass by, It always finds its way back in to my rotation!

The lyrics read:

Holy, Holy, Holy
Holy is our God
Holy is the Lord of Lords

You are the Lord of Lords
You are the King of Kings
You are my everything
So I give myself to you

Worthy, Worthy, Worthy
Worthy is our God
Worthy is the Lord of Lords

Faithful, Faithful, Faithful
Faithful is our God
Faithful is the Lord of Lords

You are the Lord of Lords
You are the King of Kings
You are my everything
So I give myself to you

My worship belongs to you
My praise belongs to you

Yes, Yes
Yes, Yes Lord
This song is exactly what is in my heart right now โค
***************************************************************************************************
The next song is “Fill me up God” originally by Jesus Culture, but this week I have been listening to the Casey J rendition. ( Tasha Cobbs also does an amazing rendition)ย 
The lyrics are simple:
You provide the fire
I’ll provide the sacrifice
You provide the Spirit
And I will open up inside

Fill me up God
Fill me up God
Fill me up God
Fill me up

Love of God
Overflow
Permeate
All my soul

I want more
I want more
I want more
I want more

Less of me
More of you
Less of me
More of you

Pour it out
Pour it out
Pour it out

This is my testimony right now and right now as I type this the tears are flowing freely. I know I am nothing without my Creator and that’s whyย forย everyday I am granted life, I need to make it my duty to serve and honor Him! โค
Be Blessed!
xoxo!

Monday Motivation: Sunshine After the Storm…

Monday Motivation: Sunshine After the Storm…

Hey guys,

Short post today:

Today was a gloomy, damp rainy day here in my city and that definitely reflected my mood. It was just one of those blah days. Ironically, as I sit here and reflect on my gloomy day, the sun has peeked his head out and the birds are chirping, serving as a reminder that there is always sunshine after the storm.

It may not look like you are going get through your situation. Your journey may seem long, dark and never-ending. But remember, you are on your journey for a reason. You may not understand the reason, but trust your journey. Take heart in the fact that there is someone greater than you working on your behalf! There is always light at the end of tunnel, despite how long your tunnel may be!

  • โ€œThe righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.โ€ (Psalm 34:17)

  • He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.โ€ (Isaiah 40:29)

Tell your storm to pass!!! Its time for the sun to shine!!!! This song is truly my testimony today. Be blessed!

Even though your winds blow
I want you to know
You cause me no alarm
Cause I’m safe in his arms
Even though your rain falls
I can still make this call;
Let there be peace
Now I can say go away
I command you to move today
Because of faith I have a brand new day
The sun will shine and I will be okay
That’s what I told the storm
!

I told the storm to pass
Storm you can’t last
Go away – I command you to move today
Storm – when God speaks;
Storm – you have to cease
That’s what I told the storm!

Winds stop blowing!
Floods stop flowing!
Lightning stop flashing!
Breakers stop dashing!
Darkness go away!
Clouds move away!
That’s what I told the storm!

Death can’t shake me!
Job can’t make me!
Bills can’t break me!
Disease can’t take me!
You can’t drown me!
My God surrounds me!
That’s what I told the storm!

xoxo
