This is a song written by my campus minister’s best friend and we sang it at a conference last weekend and I haven’t been able to let it go since… I just had to share it with everyone else cuz it’s a great song

Consume my Worship- Eboni Speight

You are, You are the King of Glory
Worshipping You only
I bow before Your throne
For you are God alone

Consume my worship
Consume my worship

Let the fire on the altar never go out, never go out!
Let the fire on the altar never go out, never go out!

So I was feeling good today and I began to think about a few of my favorite things and felt the need to remix the entire song 🙂

My church’s worship and Sunday night football
Sounds of the ocean and the colors of fall
Beautiful pretty butterfly wings
These are a few of my favorite things

The Pittsburg Steelers and dancing for Jesus
Reading Sue Grafton NOT riding the bus
Listening to gospel artists sing
These are a few of my favorite things

Watching good movies on the big screen
Sharing the gospel with those around me
Writing ‘bout scriptures and them how I see
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

Remix of: Sound of Music- Favorite things

So I have a problem with complaining. When something goes a way differently than I think it should go I get upset about it, moan and groan, and probably go into the thoughts of my life sucks and nothing ever goes right.

In trying to Do the Word that I KNOW and take every thought captive (from motivation of Darla) instead of sitting here and continually mulling over the bad day I am experiencing I’m going to do the opposite and praise God for what I didn’t get.

So instead of complaining about the fact that my professor cancelled class with no notice to me causing me to ride the bus to school for 2 hours and waste my time and money…
I will rejoice and Praise God that I have the privilege to be in school, the ability to learn, time to spend with God and doing the things of God, and the money to pay for my transportation.

Instead of complaining about the fact that I lost my headphones and can’t listen to my music from my mp3 player…
I will rejoice and Praise God that I have my hearing and ability to praise and worship God freely.

Instead of complaining about the fact that I possibly lost $20 and can’t get lunch or anything to eat right now…
I will rejoice and Praise God that he supplies all my needs and that I am not currently starving but have food in my cabinets and refrigerator @ home

Psalm 9:1-2

I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
       I will tell of all your wonders.

I will be glad and rejoice in you;
       I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

So here I am @ 4 am awake, writing another blog… I have sleep issues and I need to get that fixed…

So I took a poll about what I should blog about and apparently the few faithfuls would like to hear my opinion about Obama and the black church surprise surprise LOL…

So yeah… I don’t even really know how to start this post… I want to say I’m not dissing Barack Obama, nor am I down playing this historic event. I’m happy that Barack Obama’s skin color did not prevent people from voting for him but I also hope he was voted for, for the right reasons. That’s not why I’m writing this post however.

I’ve seen and heard some disturbing things regarding the Black Community specifically the Black Church and Barack Obama and I just wanted to put my opinions out there about it. I was on the way home from bible study listening to talk Radio and the guy, Austin Hill was complaining because he attended a church on Nov. 9 that he believed was worshiping Barack Obama with a huge picture of the President Elect and his family. He urged listeners to just to search google about Barack Obama and the Black Church and see how many results we’d turn up. He had callers infuriated because he was condemning the Black Community for their actions. I for one agreed with him (and I rarely agree with his views)… it was wrong for people to put someone so high that it borderlines worship; for God himself said

“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before [a] me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me

Now I did what he suggested and it disturbed me… Now this one takes the cake too… I heard that there were people singing a song… the song In the Name of Jesus… and replacing the name of Jesus and inserting Barack… Now that is just wrong…. I just suggest that we check ourselves whether we are worshiping Barack Obama or something else… because it is a sin…

Side note: Barack Obama has done nothing yet… Just wait and see what he does… Also… you can’t compare him to Martin Luther King Jr. cuz he’s NOT him for one… and he’s not working for the same cause Dr. King was… Martin Luther King paved the way for this history to occur but they are as of yet… incomparable…

I’m not saying Barack Obama won’t do great things or achieve greatness… I just think people are holding him on so high of a pedestal he can do nothing but fail your expectations. You’re setting him up for failure so remember… if you’re upset don’t blame him… blame yourself.
