God I Say Thank You

Another one of those sleepless nights but all I can do is thank God because I know he is still in control. For so long I ran from the plan and purpose that God predestined for my life for several reasons:
  1. Because I could not understand why he chose me.
  2. Wasn't sure I could measure up to the task.
  3. Afraid of what others may think of me. 
God continues to show me daily that it doesn't matter what others may say it's just important to stay focus on him. In writing my first book: A Praying Heart my purpose was to inspire others to understand the different aspects of prayer while developing a deeper connection with him. Through the whole process God has always walked with me. I haven't been feeling the best lately but my love for God continue to grow my spiritual life and that's why I continue to push myself to keep gong no matter. 

In the past few weeks God has really showed me why I can never stop writing because:
  1. I have a testimony that he will allow me to share with the world when the time is right.
  2. In order to be one a servant I must remain humbled in all that I do.
  3. Speak words of hope and encouragement to those that are struggling or just looking to grow closer to him.
There have been so many that ask how in the world to you keep going with all you go though. My only response is: because God has not given up on me and he has allowed me to live far longer than the doctors quoted to me. Don't feel bad for me just take and thank God with me because I am healed and delivered because of his love, daily grace and mercy.

You woke me up this morning to have a better day
Instead of praising you I disobeyed you and at times
I am not sure what I am supposed to do
The sound of your name rings in
My heart and I hope that
It never stops
Lord I pray that you
Forgive me for all my sins
Forgive me for passing judgement on others
Teach me to have forgiveness in my heart
For those who have mistreated me
As you lead me to the riverside
To leave all of my trouble behind
I look to the future instead of my past
Thank you for blessing me with
The talent to express my feelings
Through your loving words
Lord it took me a long time
To realize my gift
Now that I have I promise to
Use it to uplift your people
Thank you for teaching that I had
To fall before I would be able
To walk and stand tall
Lord thank you for being the lover
Of my soul and the joy in my life
When I was down you allowed me to
Sit on your shoulders until I
Was able to get up and stand on my own
Lord with all that I am I offer up this prayer
Today and every day to come in
You precious name Amen

Song of the Week: I Know Who Holds Tomorrow by Kelly Price

Kelly talking: why don't we do this, play that song that
Ma use to like to hear me sing in church all the time. (Piano
Plays) yea that's the one.
Verse 1: I don't know about tomorrow
I just live from day to day
And I don't borrow from its sunshine
For its sky's may turn to gray
And I don't worry about my future
For I know what jesus said
And today he walks beside me
For he knows what lies ahead
Many things about tomorrow
I don't seem to under understand
But I, I know, I know, I know
Who holds tomorrow
And I, I know
Who holds
Who holds my hand
Ooo yea,
Yeah yes
Yeah yes, who holds my hand.
