Monday Motivation: It Is So….

Hi guys,

Super quick blog post today! I just wanted to share a song I have been jamming on for a few weeks and had on repeat today! The song is “It is So ” by William Mcdowell featuring Travis Greene. The lyrics in full are right here, but I just wanted to touch on one part of the song that really stood out to me:

Well, He is Alpha – AMEN!
And Omega – AMEN!
He’s the beginning – AMEN!
And the end – AMEN!
Through every trial – AMEN!
Tribulation – AMEN
He always causes His people to win

What a comforting feeling to know that no matter what I’m going through, there is a God on the battlefield fighting for me and with him on my side I will be a winner EVERY TIME! Amen!! ❤

Take a listen to this song and be blessed!
xoxo

Monday Motivation: Made A Way….

Monday Motivation: Made A Way….

Hey guys!

I hope this Monday is finding you in good health and good spirits. I am in extremely good spirits today!  I received some good news today from a friend! I won’t share the news here on my blog because my friend is extremely private but it is news I personally have been praying for for a long time! Today, I literally cried real living eye water boo hoo tears in the middle of my work day and could care less who was watching! Happy tears are the best tears and I was so happy to shed these ones! 🙂

Usually when a song resonates in my spirit,  I don’t usually know the reason why until later. The song “Made a Way” by Travis Greene has been on replay in my head ( and on my phone, in the car, on the Bose speaker etc.. lol) for the past few days. When this situation with my friend happened today  I understood why! Let me break down the song lyrics for you as it relates to me right now.

Made a way
Don’t know how but you did it
Made a way
Standing here not knowing how will get through this test
But holding unto faith you know that
Nothing can catch you by surprise
You got this figured out and youre watching us now
But when it looks as if we cant win
You wrap us in your arm and step in
And everything we need you supply
You got this in control
And now we know that

You made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because you made a way
You made a way

I have been in situations before where I was just about to throw in the towel. Literally didn’t see a way for whatever negative situation that was occurring to become positive. But this section of the song reminds me that even though I can’t see the big picture, God has my life planned out already and has everything in control! Sometimes its hard to give up control to someone else even the very person who created us! I still struggle with this sometimes but as of late ( and due to my stubbornness at times to give up control) He has just been taking control whether I like it or not! I’m learning slowly.. Pray for me ! 🙂

Now we’re here
Looking back on where we come from
Because of you and nothing we’ve got
To deserve the love and mercy you’ve shown
But your grace was strong enough to pick us up

I can’t ever speak enough about God’s love and his undying mercy! I literally should be dead.. and I’m not saying that to be cute. I shouldn’t be here today but for God’s mercy and his love and unmerited favour on my life I am here! He’s brought me out of some dark places and I am forever humbled and grateful.

You move mountains
You cause walls to fall
With your power
You perform miracles
There is nothing that’s impossible
And we’re standing here
Only because you made a way

You made a way [x4]

Don’t know how but you did it
Made a way
Don’t know how but you did it
Made a way

Don’t know how but you did it [x4]

Don’t know why but I’m grateful [x4]

Don’t know how but I’m grateful

I can say for my friend and the situation my friend was facing that there were times where my friend could have totally given up hope and accepted what man had declared. But my friend also has a strong relationship with the God I serve so I know that it is easy for my friend to relate to this section of the song. NOTHING and I mean NOTHING is impossible when God is in the midst! The biggest obstacle you are facing, He can remove it! Those mountains or that wall blocking the view of a brighter tomorrow , He can tear those down! Another ad lib ( impromptu lyrics) in this song says ” Strong holds are breaking” whatever has you bound, God will remove it!  How does He do it???!! In all actuality, I don’t know! I do know that He is God all powerful, all knowing and able to do all things!! The line that tops it all off and brings tears to my eyes as I write this is  “Don’t know why but I’m grateful” I am eternally grateful that God is still in the business of “making a way” for His people!  My heart is full! My spirit is full. God showed up today and through my friend reminded me that He is currently and will always make a way!!

Please check out this song “Made a Way” by Travis Greene! I hope it blesses your soul as much as it does mine! Actually check out his entire album ” The Hill”! This young man truly can relate the songs he sings. He was born as a stillborn baby and was resuscitated! At the age of fout, he fell from a four story building and was dead and was once again resuscitated! If that is not living proof that God makes a way, then I don’t know what is! How are you going to be declared dead 2 times and live and not sing  the praises of Almighty God! How Sway? How!! ( lol)

Whatever He has planned for your life, nobody nor anything can stop it!

Have a blessed Monday y’all!!

xoxo

Monday Motivation: All Things Are Working For My Good…

Monday Motivation: All Things Are Working For My Good…

Hey y’all!

Really quick blog post today ( I promise I’ll give you guys a substantial one tomorrow 🙂 ) I have just had this one song on repeat for the last 3 days. I can’t explain why. Maybe it’s just to remind me that God has a plan and He’s working it out for me… or maybe someone out there needs this word… The artist is Travis Greene and the song is called ” Intentional”

The lyrics are so simple, a basic repetition of the same message:

All things are working for my good
He’s intentional, never failing ( repeat)

All things are working for my good ( repeat)

Oh oh oh…….  ( repeat)

I don’t have to worry cause its working for me
its working for me, its working for me

He’s intentional ( repeat) 
Never failing

We serve a God that not only knows our hearts desires, but created that very heart and knows what is best for it. We may not always see or understand God’s plan but let’s remember what it says in Romans 8:28:

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

So stay blessed! Be at peace, hold on to hope and have a wonderful Monday! ❤

Here is the song! Please have a listen 🙂  Travis Greene is truly an underrated artist! He has a Mali music kind of vibe!
