This week i am focusing on drawing my strength from God and learning to be still. Psalm 46: 10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” As i think about this verse i am reminded of the movie Jungle book where Mowgli and Baloo are singing ‘bare necessities. Baloo says to Mowgli, ‘ So just try and… relax. Yeah. Cool it. Fall apart in my backyard. ‘Cause let me tell you something, little britches: if you act like that bee at… Uh-uh. You’re working too hard. And don’t spend your time lookin’ around for something you want that can’t be found…
Sometimes it is easy to overwork like that bee and get tangled up in the everyday hassle and bustle of life. We buzz to the kitchen,buzz to school,buzz to pick up and drop off. We buzz to work and we buzz to church sometimes as if going round and round on a hamster wheel. Regardless of all of these things i am beginning to see that the word of God is my shield and my fortress in the midst of everything and i actually do not mind being like a busy bee as long as i know that Yahweh is the one directing my steps.
Father God i pray that you help me and anybody else reading this or searching for the truth to internalize that beautiful verse and to be still and know you are God in Jesus name Amen.
Wow it only seems like yesterday when Ja Rule released his first album Venni Vetti Vecci. Music is such a powerful tool in how it shapes our lives because every song brings back memories of friendship,relationships and even the weather…yes yes many moons ago before mamab got saved she occasionally went clubbing with friends and danced along to “holla holla”. As interesting as it all were, it is also nice to fast forward and see how God can change people’s lives into something more beautiful beautiful (like the song by Francesca Batistelli). I saw this clip the other day of Ja Rule talking about how he gave his life to Jesus during the promotional tour of the hit movie I’m in Love With a Church Girl where he plays the role of Miles Montego a high flying drug dealer who falls in love with a lovely church girl. The movie concludes with Miles becoming the pastor of a church almost like the opposite of life imitating art.
Ja Rule whose real name is Jeffery Atkins is has been married for over a decade and has 3 children with his wife Aisha Murray
Ja Rule is no stranger to getting in trouble with the law and some of his past legal issues include fire arm possession, assault and being caught with marrijuana. Despite his run in with the law it seems Ja Rule has surrendered all to the only one who matters…Jesus Christ.
The much awaited movie sonofgod has officially opened in the US today. The movie is about the life of Jesus Christ the son of God and the whole project was birthed by Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett who are also behind the Bible mini series which did amazingly well on the history channel. Son of God the movie stars Diogo Morgado as Jesus. This week Roma Downey and her husband appeared on Joni Table talk on Daystar to discuss the movie. It was so lovely to hear them discuss how they relied on The Holy spirit to show them who was to play the role of Jesus and when Diogo walked in the audition room they knew without a doubt he should get the role. i am so looking forward to seeing this movie and it is definitely something the whole family can watch.
