Fly Like a Bird

I posted Mariah performing Fly Like a Bird at the 2006 Grammys. I just love that song and I love that Mariah is at that point where she can sing about how she loves Jesus and have scripture in her song etc. and no one judges or talks about her for it. If she would've made that song when she first came out people would've written her off as a gospel fanatic and left her alone I am so glad she is taking advantage of her fame and spreading the word. My favorite part is when she says "I need your strength to survive" That is so true..His strength is the only way I can deal with things in life amongst all the tragedies in this world... I dedicate this video to the Virginia Tech Tragedy.

Out of the Miry Clay

I finished my novel Out of the Miry Clay and am now looking for a publisher. I am proud and happy that this work will entertain and educate young adults. below is my synopsis of my book:

It is about a girl in the inner-city of Chicago who dreams of becoming a singer. After a small break comes her way a stranger helps her to become closer to God. After this happens, many tragic things happen in her life as well as a nagging melody that begins in her head that she tries to ignore, but is always there. After she fails at trying to get her album together she finds words to this melody and these words directly contradict the ultra sexy, ultra violent lyrics she is required to sing. But she realizes that this is the true calling that God has on her life and it not only changes her in significant ways but changes others in her life as well.

Jesus is not just a belief

Happy Easter to all. Just remember that Jesus is not just a belief that He is the only way, truth and life and no one comes to the Father but through Him. I firmly believe nothing will change that. When we witness, we shoudn't just say, this is what I believe...We should say this is the truth and believe it! Jesus died on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, After 3 days He came back again in victory over Satan and now to be saved we have to believe in Him and He will come back some day. What I love to hold on to is this; Every Knee shall bow and Every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord and that is true so don't let anyone who turn you away for the faith, frustrate you!

We All Matter

This past Good Friday I was thinking about how Jesus died for all. The suffering, torture, whips, nails were all endured for all of the world. Not just the pretty Christian that crosses your mind. The Jewish also He died for and I pray that many Jews embrace Jesus and the fact that His word is merely the fufillment of the prophecies they so diligently study. I still believe they are the chosen people but we all became chosen when Jesus paid the price for our sins. God already chose you He's just waiting for you to surrendar all and choose Him. If you already accepted Jesus in your heart, continue to remember to share your faith to everyone because everyone matters and don't be afraid to put aside your pride and surrendar to Him each and everyday.
