“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Inspiration comes in many forms. It is meant to awaken in each of us a special drive and ignite a flame of passion. My quest is to highlight those people, places and things that inspire and transform. I seek to find the wonders that stimulate our minds, and whose beauty alone brings tears to our eyes. These reveal the miracles of life.
With the Holiday Season here one thing that I absolutely love is Christmas Music. Some of my favorite songs are Emmanuel, The Little Drummer Boy, and Mary Did you know. Some renditions of these songs leave me in tears. There is one piece that our college concert choir would perform every year and that was Handel’s Messiah. It is truly a work of wonder from the orchestral excerpts to the operatic etudes. Now, the piece is quite long but it leaves you full and inspired, in awe and wonder of this King of Kings and Lord of Lords. So if you get the chance and have adequate time just light a candle, find a comfy chair, get some headphones, close your eyes and enjoy the majestic sounds that point to the true reason for the season.
Yeah I know, I know…its been a long minute since my last post. Its actually been over 2 years. I have been through quite a bit. I’ll save you the details but just know that I hope to be posting more frequently and giving you some more content as the Lord wills it. Thanks for staying with me on this journey and you’ll hear from me soon.
I am like super geeked, got some plans and then again I don’t have any. Someone told me that I should just relax and enjoy the summer and that is exactly what I plan to do but I can’t help but feel like I’m a little too comfortable doing nothing. Is that weird?
So yeah, May had me so busy that I didn’t really post anything but Now that Summer is here I got all the time in the world. And this summer has been feeling a little different for me.
For one, I am officially done with undergrad. PRAISE GOD!!! I feel so free, but unfortunately my lack of planning has left me with not a thing to do this summer and of course Job hunting is not fun at all…smh. Not only that but I decided to take a year off before Grad/Professional School and yeah we can talk about that in another post.
Second, I moved back to my hometown, the city that I love with all my heart, I now attend my home church, which I also love with all my heart and God is allowing me to see it all with new eyes. Places, people and things that I didn’t notice before I left are now things that I am taking notice of and its all so exciting for me.
Third, God has been working on this heart of mine! Yeah some of you may not understand this but my desire to be with the Lord is growing stronger and stronger. I find myself waking up and rushing to His Word, or wanting to pray and talk to him about everything every second of the day.
Lastly, God is showing me that this is a season of opportunity for me. I’m fresh out of college with a degree in hand, a degree that gives me plenty of options, of which I don’t even know what to do with, and he is telling me to slow down and figure things out. But I can’t help but feel some type of way. You ever get that feeling that something big is about to happen? That’s exactly how I’m feeling right now. As I am chasing God, trying to get active at Church, and such, God is preparing me for something that I can’t even fathom. And all I can do is Thank God, for this new season in my life. He is about to take me somewhere and I just want to be in tuned into what He is doing.
Sometimes God allows us to wait for a while, to let us know that He is still in control, and that His plans are greater than our own. Don’t get discouraged, the whole world is moving ahead but what exactly are they moving ahead to? (that’s deep…) Yep I was comparing myself to other people, feeling bad because what I was doing wasn’t up to par. BUT what God has for You is going to be so great, and only for you. So don’t throw in the towel just yet. Keep waiting, and as you wait, Keep Busy in the Kingdom, Keep trusting Him, and Keep hoping in Christ Jesus until God’s blessings manifest in your life.
So yeah…Have a great summer folks! It’s a new season, a new day and I feel the fresh anointing coming my way!
