Waking up at 4:30? And couldn’t really go back to sleep So I will do homework and maybe queue up some things for this blog. Listening to to some neosoul, I feel like today’s gonna be a good day.
Our capacity to make peace with another person and with the world depends very...– Thich Nhat Hanh (via oceanofmind) So true. You cannot bring forth what isn’t in you! How can I expect to give you bread when I can’t bake? If you ask for peace, it must reside within you.
Apart from Him, I am nothing, and after Him, everything else falls into place....– C.S. Lewis
To my new follows during this past week. I appreciate all of you, not just the new ones, because I don’t consider myself, by no means, so important to where I would have people read my material, yet you have clicked a mere button to peruse my thoughts and I thank you. I am nearing 800 posts, I didn’t know I had so much within…but I have much more to get out. :)
Silence is Golden They Say....
Just my thought for the day Silence sometimes is essential to life, there is a time and place for everything and sometimes speaking shouldn’t continually be your only option of reaction, your silence speaks a solace like none other. Strangely, some are more moved by your peace than by your fire. I had to stress this more than a couple times to some of my peers because our culture is so...
Soul receives from soul that knowledge, therefore not by book nor from...– Rumi
God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, Thou who has brought us thus...– Excerpt from Lift Every Voice and Sing An amazing adage! From the third stanza of the Black National Anthem, James Weldon Johnson writes this prayer, a prayer of protection and salvation. Recognizing the God who has been God from the start, through our trials and throughout the years is poignant,...
If thou wilt be observant and vigilant, thou wilt see at every moment the...– Rumi
I woke up this morning ready to work and ready to get on the move. You cannot succeed in anything until you become anxious and expectant to achieve and succeed. You have to want it!
Mindset Before Atmosphere
I deeply believe that if someone wants a good day, and has a positive outlook on what the day can bring, then you can have a good day. Sometimes we void our blessings because our outlook is not positive to reception and being open to what God can present to us. Open your mind and free yourself from negativity. If you want blessings, place your mind in the mode to openly receive blessings.
Just a Thought
I don’t belive that you can fully tap into your intellect, as a human being, until you learn how to understand any other human’s art as their own and find the beauty within. You don’t have to accept, and take up, that art or that action(s), but understand that there is more way than just your own.
Chile Miners Freed →
They call it extraordinary luck, I call it being extraordinarly blessed. It was truly the mercy and favor of God that kept them, so many would have lost their minds (or their lives) by being in the mine for nearly 70 days. Human perserverance is remarkable! Our strive for attaining life, and fulfilling it’s purpose, is one of the highest callings we seek. I wonder what the miners did during...
By the way...
It’s so nice to know that there are other young adults who see the same problems in some of the bull that is shown on tv. It warms my heart ha. I cannot wait to blog on these awards *writes notes on ignorance*
The BET Hip Hop Awards
I will be watching the award show tonight and taking notes to blog on it later on tonight. I may throw in something I’ve been meaning to say on the difference between expression and exploitation.
How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!– Psalm 133:1
Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him...– Hebrews 11:6 Amen, too many of us are just trying to go through the motions of church, going to services, half-singing, and half-ministering, when we should try to be chasing God and developing our faith. THEN our ministry will be effective.
Just Gettin In
I auditioned for a musical today and went to choir rehearsal, I’m kind of tired. The audition went well, Idk if I have told you all about my voice or not…I may do that tonight. I need to find a book to read…
One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house...– Psalm 27:4 (via iamlovedbytheking) Amen! But the sad part about our want to dwell in His special place is that we won’t follow His Will to get to Him. We’d rather choose our own way of finding God and doing what we want and line-item veto certain things we don’t like then to...
