My four favorites, current Christian worship, gospel, and Christian rap songs. 

Here are my four favorite, current Christian worship, gospel, and Christian rap songs, and what do they mean to me? 

1.  Blessings on blessings (The B.O.B. Bounce) by Anthony Brown and Group Therapy. This is a gospel song.  What this song means to me is that every time I turned around, God has giving me numerous of blessings that I can’t hold them all, lol. I should look myself as a blessing.  I am very blessed for the all the blessings that God has given me, whether they are tangible, people he has placed in my life, and non tangible; he is the source of all my blessings I currently have and blessings that are on the way.  To speak blessings over my life. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. 

2.  FaSho by Aaron Cole This is Christian rap song.  Do I have any Christian rap music fans out there?  FaSho means for sure in slang talk. What this song means to me is if I have a goal that I see in my mind that I want to achieve, I pray to God about the goal to direct my steps towards the goal. From there, I go out and work it. Don’t have anything or anyone keep me from looking back. Continue to pass forward towards the goal until it is fulfilled. 

3.  Just Jesus by Hillsong Young and Free This is a Christian worship song.  What this song means to me is I am content with just Jesus because he knows the way to take me; he is the way. He guides me in all truth; he is the truth, and he provides for me the abundant life; he is the life.  As I have him in my life, there is no backup plan, no rolling of the dice. Its just Jesus for me. 

4. Rattle by Elevation Worship This is a Christian worship song.  This song reminds me of a Bible scripture called the valley of the day bones, found in Ezekiel 34:1-14. What the song means to me if I have dead areas in my life, God can raise them back to life and make them live again. This song is powerful and energizing. 

I love all these songs; they are fantastic.  I believe you will love them as well. You can listen to these incredible songs on YouTube,  iTunes, radio,  or anywhere you listen to music. That is your encouragement for the day. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post, and it has encouraged you in any way.  Tell me in the comments below what is your favorite, current Christian or Gospel songs? Like and share. 

Have a fantastic day,

Air 1

Air 1 is a Christian music radio station that plays Christian worship music 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Air 1 is the radio station that I currently listen to, and I love it. I discovered air 1 during my church music fast from rap, r&b, and jazz. I loved the music that air 1 was playing, so; I listen to air 1 during my church music fast. When my church music fast was over, I would leave air 1 and listen to the r&b music station. I did this so many times. When I listen to air 1; it sets the atmosphere and makes it stays there.When I listen to the r&b music station, the atmosphere would be gone. When I heard the testimonials from other listeners about how air 1 helps them to be connected with God, to worship and praise God, to be kinder, friendly to people, to have their day run smother, etc., etc., etc. That encourages me to continue to listen to the radio station.

The everyday woman

The everyday woman is an amazing woman who you see in everyday life. You see her at the store, church, school, job, and in the neighborhood.

She lives a righteous life and is kind, hard-working, friendly, enjoyable, dependable, lively, and down–to–earth. She carries herself with class and takes pride in herself, her appearance, and her daily assignments.

She is an encourager and always encouraging someone with encouraging words. She treats everyone with loving-kindness, decency, and respect. She talks with wisdom and straightforwardness.

She doesn’t compare herself to others, and she is always herself. She doesn’t judge or criticize others. She believes in what God says about her, not humans. She is not a fighter, but she will kick your butt if you come at her wrong. She will not tolerate inappropriate behavior and activities.

She connects and understands everyday people who have the same problems and struggles as her. She loves to have fun and laugh with everyday people and engage in everyday conversations.

She knows she is flawed, not perfect. She is okay with that. She is not chasing perfection. She is pursuing improvement and excellence. She can effectively communicate with others; is responsible; she works excellent with a team, solves problems, and can work with other people in a powerful and friendly way.

She volunteers in the community and makes the community better. She is a positive example that anybody look up to. Her family and friends are blessed to have her. She is the everyday woman.

 

Keep moving forward,

Robin

Keep Pedaling

Kevin said to Sophia Grace, the time has come for you to ride this bike by yourself. Remember everything I have taught you, such as put on your helmet before you get on the bike, have both hands on the handles, put your feet on the pedals, etc. Kevin took out his toolbox. He got out his 15mm spanner to remove the training wheels off the bike. Kevin said to Sophia Grace to get off of the bike. Sophia Grace said, what are you doing? Kevin said I am taking the training wheels off the bike. You won’t need them anymore. Kevin said to Sophia Grace to get back on the bike. He told her, whatever you do, keep pedaling. If you fall, get back up on the bike and keep moving. Are you ready? Sophia Grace said yes he said 1, 2, 3 GO. Sophia Grace took off. She kept pedaling, pedaling, pedaling, pedaling as Kevin has said. She looked back at Kevin; Kevin yell back at her, DON’T LOOK BACK, KEEP MOVING. The further she went, the more Kevin was being left behind; knowing she will never see him again, he disappeared. That made her cry. She wipes her eyes. She remembers Kevin’s words to keep pedaling. She was pedaling very fast, faster than the speed of light. She kept going until she returned home. 

This short story is dedicated to the loving memory of my beloved tutor, Kevin ‘O Rourke. 

Much love and Many blessings,

Robin

Maybe

After all of this is over.


Maybe our complaining will lessenMaybe our appreciation increasesMaybe we will love more deeplyMaybe we will see that some things are just out of
our control.

Maybe we will realize that we have to rely on the Source and not our resources.
Maybe we will recognize no matter our backgrounds, we all are affected by COVID-19.


Maybe we will realize that one moment you can “have the world” and the next moment the situations of the world can have you.
Maybe we will appreciate our jobs, churches, hospitals, stores, etc.,  more.


Maybe we will understand our healthcare staff, truck drivers, grocery store staff, “essential workers,” call center staff, food industry staff, mail/shipment carriers, first responders, mortuary personnel, ALL factory workers, and educators/school staff more. 

Maybe we will realize the value of the right relationship.
Maybe we will know it’s the small things that count
Maybe we will realize that life is valuable
Maybe we will realize that life is fleeting, and we should live in the present at all times.

Maybe we will show more appreciation for those grand moments of weddings, proms, graduations, etc.
Maybe we will appreciate those moments to celebrate a life that was lived.

Maybe we will understand our own lives and the people who helped us along the way and the people we are improving as we move forward.

Maybe we will realize fellowship with one another, whether it be at a place of worship, restaurant, home, etc.
Maybe we will enjoy being able to come and go as we so choose.

And just maybe when this is all over we see with different eyes, love with a bigger heart, show empathy and compassion for our neighbors, and be more relational/connected (less distracted by the harmful noise, technology, and the things that just doesn’t matter)
This is my prayer.
Amen

Kindness

I apologize for the glance that is covering the letters ay.

I was given this button at church on Sunday, October 27th, 2019. It comes from the movie called a beautiful day in the neighborhood. The film is about kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After Tom was given the assignment of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor. This movie comes out on November 22nd this movie will give you and your family a valuable lesson in being kind. When you are kind, it makes you feel good as you are doing good to others. When you show kindness to a person or group of people, it affects them and you too. Kindness goes around. You never know exactly how huge of an effect a little act of kindness can have. Also, when you are kind, you have one of the fruits of the Spirit. After watching this movie, it can make your Thanksgiving and every day a little kinder. Read Galatians 5:22.

Keep your eyes on Jesus

Weistling, n.d.

When I was a kid, I was at this church for an event; I can’t remember what event it was. I was looking at Jesus, pulling Peter out of the water. My former choir director, said to me, what does it tell you about life? I didn’t know the answer to that question. She said, don’t ever take your eyes off of Jesus. I am saying the same thing to you when life is knocking you down, around, and all over the place, keep your eyes on Jesus. Read Matthew 14:22-33.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Robin

Live, Laugh and Love

Live, Laugh, and Love is one of the mottos that I live by. 

Live

Live means alive; I am blessed to be alive. I am living not just existing. It is a blessing to be living on the top of the grass than having the grass be on the top of me. I am in excellent health. I have the activity of my limbs. I am moving and breathing. I am in my right mind; I can think for myself and take care of myself, such as eat for myself, clothe myself, and bathe myself. Doing activities that interest me and that I enjoy.

Laugh

I love to laugh. I laugh at anything laughable such as a joke, funny thought, or comment that someone has said. I have an incredible time when I am laughing, laughing is so much fun. There is a quote that is on my Instagram page; it says, “Life is better when you are laughing.” That is so true because of the more I laugh; the more life will be better will be more enjoyable and will help me to deal with life’s struggles.

Love

When I talk about love, I am not talking about limited human love I am talking about agape love God’s love. A love that has no limits that are unconditional this love I have for God, myself, and my fellow human beings (Matthew 22:37-40). Love is about doing things for the individual and having an unselfish concern for them and wants the best for them. I do my best to perform this type of love for everyone, regardless of how awful they treat me. 

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Robin

Follow the Son

The sunflower is one of the most gorgeous flowers in the world. I always liked them, but I wasn’t interested in them until 2017. The sunflowers means adoration – a deep love for someone or something, loyalty – sticking with someone or something through it all and longevity – staying around for a long time. I want all three elements of the sunflower to be a reflection of my life. As you can see, I have a picture of a sunflower at the top of my blog and the top of this paragraph. A significant part of the sunflower is they are named after the sun the flower is extraordinary in that way can give energy in the form of food, and provide dynamic quality traits which reflect the sun and the energy that is supplied by

Its warmth and light. Sunflower is known as happy flowers, making them an excellent gift to give joy to someone’s day or your day. The sunflower is always following the sun where the sun goes the flower goes it doesn’t follow anyone else. We can apply that to our Christian life to always follow Jesus. Whoever you follow affects your life we follow Jesus; he affects our lives; this is shown in our actions, especially if they are right. There is no need to follow anyone else because he knows the way he is the way ( John 14:6). Let’s be like the sunflower following the son once we do that we will always reach our destination.
