Book Review: Glory Days

Hi Friends,

Can I tell you how in my head, Author Max Lucado is my favorite Uncle?  This man is gifted, talented and anointed to write.

In my last book review I mentioned that I don't buy books, I normally get my books from the library. I am seriously considering buying this book and I wouldn't mind reading it again.

The book Glory Days is such an inspiration; Uncle Max uses such ease, humor, reassurances, and faith provoking illustrations to bring to life Joshua's story, as he lead the children of Israel into Canaan\The promised Land.  The book is arranged into manageable thought provoking chapters.  I could not read more than one chapter at a time because I was so blessed by each lesson that I had to stop and absorb, pray at times, and praise God at other times.

My courage, faith and confidence has been blessed by reading this book. There is no question Glory Days is a highly recommended read.

Greanleaf: Master Calling

I'm in LOVE with this song Ya'll... Have you heard this song before?!


Listen While you still can hear
Listen While you still can hear
The Master's call
Bow down while your knees still bend
Bow down while your knees still bend
The Master's calling

Seek Him while your eyes don't see...

Book Review: Seeking Allah_ Finding Jesus

I was interested in reading this book to to hear all about the Author's experience converting from Islam to Christianity.

As usual, I checked my local Library and they had a copy...Win for me since I'm not a book buyer.

In this book, the Author, Nabeel Qureshi, takes you on a journey into his immediate family's everyday life as a child growing up and gives a glimpse of his culture, upbringing and religious indoctrination.

It was while in College outside of the direct influence of his family that he was exposed to the doctrines of Christianity.  He shares his battle to accept the truths of Islam and a greater battle to accept the truths of Christianity.

The book is broken into several mini chapters that gives broad snippets into Nabeel's life experiences. If you enjoy philosophy of theories and reasoning's and all things Philosophy related you will enjoy his story on how he dissected and came to accept the truths of Christianity.  I had to skip a couple chapters since the "philosophysations"  were a bit much for me.

This book is an enlightening read if you would like to be taken on a personal journey of one who grew up in a "orthodox" Muslim home who found and accepted Christianity and the consequences and grace that followed.

Miracles

Hi Friends!

Hoping all is well with you and family.  I just realized I have not posted since September started.

Sometimes when I am unable to pen my thoughts, songs and certain lyrics that resonate best with the state of my mind. So encouraging and uplifting to me.

I promise you will read again from me.  I've started gathering my thoughts on a new series, which I am excited about. There will be a couple touchy/controversial subjects that will be explored in the mix of posts, so stay tuned!

Any how, more to come on that later.  Today, I'm singing about Miracles.....Are you looking for a Miracle?  Are you expecting the "Impossible"? Help me sing

This first song is one of my current favorite songs MIRACLE anthem......



Tasha Cobbs
 

and we continue expecting a miracle ...

 Clark Sisters


And to the only True and Living God.....You are Great, you Do Miracles so Great, there is no one else like YOU...



Lord I thank you, I appreciate you...You deserve ALL the Glory, ALL the Honor.  I may pout sometimes, I may be silent at other times, But one thing for sure, I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL to you; I acknowledge that if it had not been for you, my Lord on my side I would have lost my mind, I never could have made it, without you.  Thank you Father, thank you for your patience, your mercy and grace on me, I am nothing without you.

Cultural Expression: USAIN BOLT

My Friends,


Long time since I've posted a Cultural Expression post.  As expressed previously I am from the beautiful Island of Jamaica and I occasionally share posts related to Jamaica and Jamaicans.

Well, today is an occasion where I want to BIG UP Usain Bolt!!! Three time Olympic champion, holding several gold medals for 100 and 200 meter races. For the past three Olympic games and has won a total of 8 Olympic Gold Medals.

I truly enjoy his 'persona' as he plays and relates with others and certainly his 'showman' style as he celebrates his victories.

This is Usain's final Olympics as he plans to retire after the Rio games.  So very proud of his accomplishments and how he has represented Jamaica during his Career.



The song in the video below reminds me of how Usain has lived out his dream and accomplished his goals as a Track and Field Legend.

My Dream/Look at me now
Artist: Nesbeth


Blessings....Big Up Yuhself USAIN........Jamaica to the World.
