“When I think of the goodness of Jesus and what he has done for me, my heart cries out hallelujah, thank God for his saving grace…”
When I was a child I used to sing this song quite often at Sunday school. But did I really understood what it meant? Not at all! I just sang because the rhythm was sweet, and I could get to dance.
Today, I was singing this song and realized that I was singing it with a different attitude and a more graceful dance. Today, I was singing and dancing with real meaning and deep appreciation. Appreciation for the beauty of his earth, and appreciation for having friends like you.
You see, when I am on the down low and darkness surrounds me he always reminds me of who he is by sending me sunshine to light up my heart and friends to lift up my spirit with words of inspiration and kindness.
Furthermore, when my heart is overflowing with sadness he sends me his love in more ways than one. Yes indeed, God is good, and his loving kindness is extended to everyone on this earth because his love is not partial.
Friends let us be reminded that we are surrounded by the goodness of God everywhere we turn so let us open our eyes and look, then praise him for it!
Every Thursday I randomly select a post to re-blog that deals with real issues, and the author is not afraid to tell it like it is.

Thank you as usual for your support.
For last week’s real talk we spoke about people who were ungrateful and their attitude. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, it’s not too late. Please read it here!

Seriously, when was the last time you really jumped for joy and it wasn’t anything huge that happened?
Many of us have not learned the art of jumping for joy. Maybe the only time we jump for joy is if something huge take place in our lives that was caused by external factors.
Don’t get me wrong now, there are many reasons for us to celebrate our external achievements but we should not be too dependent on them because we cannot allow our happiness to be dependent on things we can loose. Continue reading When Was The Last Time You Jumped For Joy?

Never be afraid to tell your story because you can never tell the tremendous things it may do. The stories that we keep locked away might very well be the ones that will motivate or inspire people to turn their lives around.
Moreover, our untold stories are too much an agony to bear inside. Let us unleash them and share them with the world.
