R.I.P to Jason Hudson and Darnell Donerson as our hearts and prayers go out to Jennifer for this tragic loss. I pray that the lord will stretch forth his arms of mercy and give her peace in the midst of this storm. I pray that God will arrest the kidnapper of Jennifer's 7 year old nephew Julian who has been abducted since friday. Holy Spirit take over Hudsons situation and comfort her like only you can. I posted this video as I think the words are so suiting. This is one BIG MOUNTAIN!!

Soooooo here I go with my apology again! but the truth is I forgot my password!lol and I didnt want to have to go through registering the blog again!! So, now that I am back in the mix do forgive me.
I posted this video because I totally love this song even though some may call it "wordly" the words are great. Search within and stop looking so far. Everything you need that pertains to life is within you. YOU are the greatest.
You might listen to this and think of someone who is dear to you or was special at some point in your life BUT this for me was self reflective. I AM THE GREATEST, I ALWAYS SHINE!!! and this is all because HE LIVES IN ME and is "THE GREATEST" (JESUS THAT IS)XXX LOVE YA'LL. I SHALL RETURN..
"Not unto us oh lord but unto thee give glory" Psalm 115:1

I was listening to this song by Lauren Hill "Tell Him" and it really describes how I feel right now. I feel her singing my life with her words. *wink wink* Especially how she says "tell him"... kinda like, Lord I know I'm so unworthy, so I am asking someone to speak for me, I want you to know I love you...
Excerpts from the song:
"Let me be patient, let me be kind, make me unselfish without being blind"
"I know I am imperfect and not without sin"..."Tell him I need HIM"..."Its gon' be alright" oh my she is killing me softly with her words for real!
Lesson Learned this week:
I have stopped trying to be what I thought HE wanted me to be. I am now coming to him as I am so he can PURIFY ME like only HE CAN! I no longer know, I no longer go, instead, I ask and then I follow!

It has been a while since I have show cased a hero/heroine. VOLAR! Here is a short clip of Ayaan Hirsi Ali whom I describe as an "anti-islamic radical". She describes herself as a "Muslim Athiest" and I admire her bravery and her overt stand against the Islamic radicals. The mass killings and urges of violence towards those who do not believe in "Allah" is increasing as the days goes by and the death rate is alarming. She takes a stand against the quotes in the Koran that encourage men to "beat disobedient wives", "Jihad" (to fight) "Kill the unbelievers, ambush them and take their property" and makes educated arguements against staunch muslims who believe the Koran is not "all bad". She wishes not to be a part of domination and killing sprees,denounces any affiliation with "Prophet Mohammed". She is a voice for young women, Christian and Jewish minorities and it is unfortunate that her life has been threatened for a number of years. Although she has not confessed Jesus as her lord and saviour, I do consider her a "motivationalist" if there is such a word. I pray that God will continue to protect and guide her. Even though she is yet to admit what she believes in, I believe the spirit of God is working in and through her and she does not even know it. I cannot tell you the unimaginable things I have heard that has been done in the name of Islam. I was in a NYC taxi the other day and the driver (from Pakistan) and I got into a conversation about the suffering that civillians in Pakistan have to endure. He came from a christian family (mind you he was not a preacher, nor was he evangelising) the day the authorities found out.
They kidnapped him and tortured him for months. He showed me his wounds,his disfigured left arm and fingers which had been sliced off. I cringed and heeved after each sentence. As squeemish as I am, I couldn't ask him to stop because I really wanted to hear his story. He somehow managed to escape-picked up his left arm shoved it in his pocket and tied his fingers together with some cloth and wood. I know God will reward his faithful servants. "Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness sake for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" Matthew 5.
I do not condemn or speak against Muslims but I only ask that the radicalists respect the choice of free will. I end with this to my fellow believers in christ:
"God has given him a name which is above every name that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
and that every tongue should confess thatJesus Christ is Lord…"

My prayers go out to the Wright family as they mourn the loss of Betty Wright and their grandson.
I have the full report here frm the daily news:
Brooklyn pastor known as the “godfather of gospel” was critically injured and his wife and grandson killed when a wrong-way driver hit their vehicle in Pennsylvania, police said Saturday.
The Rev. Timothy Wright, 61, was hospitalized after the Friday night crash that killed his wife, Betty, 58, on Interstate 80 in Greene Township, about 160 miles west of Manhattan, state police said.
The couple’s 14-year-old grandson, D.J., died at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville on Saturday evening, a hospital spokeswoman said this morning. She said the pastor remained in critical condition.
The wrong-way driver, John Pick, 44, of Lewisburg, Pa., was also killed in the head-on collision, state police said. Police said they were awaiting a toxicology test to determine whether Pick was driving under the influence of alcohol.
Wright has released more than a dozen gospel recordings and is pastor at Grace Tabernacle Christian Center in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
His album “Come Thou Almighty King” was nominated for best traditional soul gospel album at the 1995 Grammy Awards. His latest CD, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,” came out last year.
Grace Tabernacle parishioners gathered at the church’s doorstep Saturday night and placed candles in front of a photograph of the pastor’s wife. Inside, they covered her chair with a shroud.
“I would have to say she was a jewel,” said congregant Phillip Culver. “She was right by her husband’s side and gave so much support to the church.”
While mourning Betty Wright, the parishioners were thankful to learn their pastor had opened his eyes.
“I’m believing in God now,” said Cynthia Boone, 43. “I’m relieved now that everything is okay.”
The Wrights were driving home to Roosevelt, L.I., from a church conference in Detroit, parishioners said. They were married for 37 years and had five sons.
Bishop James Gaylord, a prelate with the Church of God in Christ, said he would visit his friend today in the hospital. He expected the pastor to be hard hit by his wife's death.
"They were like a match made in heaven," Gaylord said. "She will be a tremendous loss to the community as well as to Christendom."
The church plans to hold a special prayer service at 5 p.m. Sunday
Life is short and nobody knows tomorrow so let us praise him while we still can.
