Great afternoon, happy new year. I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon. Affirmations are one of my favorite things to say. Here’s how to define affirmation. Affirmation is a declaration or indication that is something is true (Affirmation, n. d). When Pastor D told us to recite an affirmation during Sunday School, I started doing so. I have been speaking affirmations every morning after my devotion time since then. Confidence, believing in myself, understanding who I am, believing what God says about me, and not believing what the world says about me are some of the benefits I gain from speaking affirmations. 

When you speak affirmations, you state something true about yourself, believe in yourself, and encourage yourself. You have to keep yourself optimistic, inspired, and encouraged in a world that likes to throw shade, negativity, and discouragement at you. Start speaking affirmations and continue to repeat the affirmations until you believe them, and they become a part of you. Once you have done that, you won’t care about what the rest of the world thinks of you. You can find many affirmations online. Here is one to get you started. 

I am successful (Bokhari, 2020).
I am confident (Bokhari, 2020). 
I am powerful (Bokhari, 2020).
I am strong (Bokhari, 2020). 
I am getting better and better every day (Bokhari, 2020).

Have a fantastic day,

Hashtags to find Christian Content on Social Media 

Great afternoon. I hope you are doing fantastic this afternoon.  I love hashtags. If you follow me on my social media pages, I put hashtags under all of my content. I have hashtags on my Twitter and Instagram bios. I got introduced to using hashtags at an Avon meeting.  I use hashtags for people to find my content and to follow my page. If you don’t know what a hashtag is, here is a definition.  A Hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by the pound symbol. On social media, it serves as an indication for users that a piece of their content relates to a specific topic or belongs to a category.  Hashtags help make content discoverable in social media searches and effectively reach more people (Olafson,  2021). If you are on any social media sites and looking for great Christian content to encourage you in your Christian faith. Here are three hashtags to find great Christian content. 


Under this hashtag, you will find numerous of  Scriptures you can read every day. 


Under this hashtag, you will find various people that have posted links to their blogs. 


Under this hashtag, you will find numerous of scriptures and quotes. 

You can find the content of these hashtags  on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. That’s your encouragement for the day. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post and encourage you to look for Christian content under these hashtags.

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,

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.

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,

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.

This is from Natalie Waterman
