Don’t Cry…

Don’t Cry…

“Don’t cry… wipe your eyes! He’s not dead…”

Happy Easter folks! Quick post today! I hope today you are surrounded by friends or family and that you take a moment to reflect on the sacredness of today!

There are very few songs that can bring me to tears instantly. To name a few;  “Grace” by Tasha Cobbs, “Destiny” by Tina Campbell and the one this blog post is based on “Don’t Cry” by Kirk Franklin.

It’s not even a dramatically interesting arrangement, to be honest, but the lyrics in their simplicity really hit home. The lyrics read as follows:

Why do you cry? He has risen.
Why are you weeping? He’s not dead.

Why do you cry? he has risen.
Why are you weeping? He’s not dead.

He paid it all on that lonely highway
And his anointing I can feel.

He shed his blood
For my transgressions
And by his stripes, we are healed.

 

Why do you cry? He has risen.
Why are you weeping? He’s not dead.
So as you go through life’s journey
Don’t you worry lift up your head.
Don’t you cry  stop your weeping
He has risen He’s not dead.
Don’t cry
wipe your eyes
He’s not dead.
Don’t weep
He’s not asleep
Jehovah
He’s not dead

We often go through life ( even as Christians) doubting the magnitude of who Jesus Christ is and the sacrifice He made for us on the cross so many years ago. Because of the choice, He made to give HIs life for ours, we have a hope that should surpass all doubt!  Although He died and was buried, three short days later, He rose again and in that event, left us with the hope that He will one day return for us- His people.

There is hope in Jesus Christ! Maybe you’ve tried things your way for a long time, and things just don’t seem to be working out. If you haven’t already made a choice to get to know Jesus, take a few moments and pray this prayer with me:

 

Dear God,
Thank you for sending your son Jesus. I stand in awe of the sacrifice made for someone like me. I have been trying things my way for a long time, and now I want to put my life in your hands. I know that I am a sinner only saved by your grace  Please come into my heart. Guide my thoughts and point my life in a direction that is pleasing to you! Amen

 

Don’t Cry!

 

There is hope because our saviour is NOT DEAD!
He already took care of the perils of today at the cross long ago!

Rejoice in the peace that the saviour has RISEN!

 

Be Blessed!

May your Easter season be filled with love, joy and peace!

xoxo

Monday Motivation: 123, Victory…

Monday Motivation: 123, Victory…

Hey guys!

Quick blog post today because your girl is TIRED( lol). Nothing would give me more joy than to jump right in some cozy pajamas and my bed and call it night, but I couldn’t do that without stopping in and leaving a quick message for you 🙂

This weekend I was listening to the song “Wanna Be Happy” by Kirk Franklin and I decided to stop by the ITunes store to see when Kirk’s new album was due to be released ( just out of curiosity because I love that song 🙂 … its due out November 13th ) While I was there browsing the set list, I saw that another track had been released. So naturally, I clicked on it and gave it a listen. The track is called 1 2 3 Victory… and the way that track spoke to me in that moment…. sigh..

I can’t even begin to explain how much I needed to hear the message in this song. As light-hearted as the track is, the message is so real! We sometimes forget when we are going through struggles, that we are not alone and !  Part of lyrics read, ” You waiting on God, He’s waiting on you, With all you been through, Now its on you, What you gonna do?’. A smart soldier never goes into a battle alone. God’s waiting on you to tag Him in! That’s what He’s here for! Give all your worries to Him and you will be victorious!! So God, I’m tapping you in!!! ❤

Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Check out the song and lyrics down below and have a blessed Monday!

xoxo

Chorus:
Hey Yo 1, 2 3
Get up we got Victory
No weapon they throw at me
You know it wont prosper, no

Verse:1
Just got laid off ( I’m doing good)
House aint even paid off ( I’m doing good)
Should be afraid but ( I’m feeling good)
All the time you say ( God is good)

You can calm down, down down
Don’t forget who’s in control
Walls are falling down down down
Get ready for the new Jericho

Chorus 2:
You waiting on God
He’s waiting on you
( so what you gon’ do)

Storms raging ( I’m doing good)
See the world changing( I’m doing good)
I know it’s not easy
But life can’t defeat me (God is good)

Chorus 2:

You waiting on God
He’s waiting on you
With all you been through
Now its on you , so what you gonna do?

Bridge:
The battles not yours
It is the Lords
Tried on your own
You’re not that strong
But greater is He
That takes up for me
And soon they will see
My names victory( 2X)
