Good Music!

July 15, 2009

Here are some of my favorite Bible verses in song.

First up is one of my favorites, no matter who sings it! Better is One Day is an AMAZING song! Truly, better is one day in His courts than THOUSANDS elsewhere!!! I like this Kutless version alot! This song is based off of Psalm 84 – please read it here – and then listen to it:

The next Bible verse is Isaiah 40:31 – But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

This verse has special meaning to me and EVERY morning I wake up and turn on 104.1 to listen to the Yolanda Adams morning show it is the first song I hear!  They That Wait by Fred Hammond is just the song to start your day off right! It is also God’s way to remind me to go ahead and wait on Him! He has what is best for me and I need to trust and keep the faith!  Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – is also another one of my favorite verses that goes along with Isaiah 40:13.

Listen to the song here:

Another verse that makes you stop and think is Proverbs 26:11 – As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.  Think about that. Why do we return to the same sins, over and over again! because it’s comfortable? because we think we already know the outcome? I read somewhere the other day that “we can choose our sins, but we cannot choose the consequences.” That’s deep and resonates with me to the core. 

Check out Benjah’s Get Filtered; he references Proverbs 26:11:

Just had to share these songs with you! God is good to me and I LOVE my life! Through ups and downs, God is there no matter what and I am thankful He has blessed these artists with their talents to put the Gospel to song to reach us!!

Have a BLESSED day! I know I am!

Ciao, Ciao

*B*

P.S. – had to share this AWESOME picture I took the other day while tanning at the pool! Look at the cloud shaped like a heart and God’s love radiating around it! Oh, I LOVE it! Another sweet reminder from God that He loves all of His children!

How Great is Our God!

December 9, 2008

Life – wow…in all of its ups and more downs than I care to think about, one thing has always remained the SAME, just how GREAT is our God!

Nothing crazy wonderful happened to me today…unless you count waking up with a roof over my head, in a warm bed, with food in the refrigerator to make breakfast if I so choose, a loving family who encourages and suports me and so forth and so on!

Yesterday was a VERY rough day. I haven’t been sleeping for weeks, didn’t sleep last night either, but I just can’t worry about this stuff. God said to keep my eyes on Him and that is it. So that is what I will do. 

I could have gone off the deep end, so to speak, due to the current complications and circumstances in my life, but I know that would just land me SO many steps back that I may not be able to recover from that stumble.  In the face of adversity in the past I definitely would not have woken up, gotten on my knees to pray, then proceed to listen to Praise and Worship music to praise the Lord, but that is exactly what I did this morning and I am SO thankful!  Without these beautiful songs to listen to, sing along to, and praise Jesus to, my day probably would have started off a LOT worse! 

Life is all about choices and how you choose to handle different situations thrown at you. You can choose to let those situations overcome you, not deal with them, close them in, or you can tackle them head on, pray through it all and keep the faith.

I tell you what, I have been through some THINGS, but our Heavenly Father was nailed.to.a.cross for our sins, think about that.  There is a verse that takes new meaning with me:

Isaiah 53:7

       He was oppressed and afflicted,
       yet he did not open his mouth;
       he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
       and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
       so he did not open his mouth.

How often do we complain about, nevermind, scratch that, so many times I, Bianca, complain, grumble, whatever at “bad” things going on in my life, I am human, I do that. But thank goodness I have a God who is there through it all who will comfort me, protect me, provide for me no matter what situation I am in! For that, I can shout, be happy, thankful and SO blessed just to know that! That in the midst of a storm(s) of life, my God is there for me ALWAYS!!!

Anyways, if you need a pick me up or just want to worship the Lord for just how wonderful He truly is, check these two songs.  Have a blessed day!!!

My New Favorite Song, Remixed!

July 17, 2008

Jason Champion – Always!

Let me tell you something, don’t you worry about a thing tonight

I promise you that everything is going to be alright

Hold your head up high, look up to the sky

EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT!!

He’s everything that you’ll ever need (alright)

Just when you think it ain’t, it’s gonna be (alright)

Just call His name and you’ll see what I mean (alright)

Because He loves you UNCONDITIONALLY!

Forever, He loves you always, don’t worry, He’ll be there ALWAYS

And just because you had yourself a couple bad days, don’t mean it’s gonna be this way ALWAYS

Forever, Forever

No matter what you’re going through

And when you don’t know what to do

Don’t turn and run away, FALL ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAY

REMEMBER THAT HE’S WITH YOU FOREVER

He loves you always, don’t worry, He’ll be there ALWAYS

And just because you had yourself a couple bad days, don’t mean it’s gonna be this way ALWAYS

Allow me to give some UNDIGNIFIED PRAISE!!!

Destiny
by Stephen Hurd
My Destiny

What’s the plan that you have for me
The place you’ve called me to be
Some people call it destiny
Will you let me know

What’s the plight that
You’ve called me to
The thing I’m set aside to do
I trust you Lord to see me through
Will you let me look
In your heart

Lord hear my plea
Reveal to me
The mysteries
And the plan you have for me

This prayer is from me
Make known to me
The mysteries
And the plan you have for me

Destiny

Thank you (Thank you)
For showing me (For showing me)
And directing me (directing me)
To my destiny (To my destiny)

Tell the Lord Thank you
(Thank you)
For showing me (For showing me)
And directing me (Directing me)
To my destiny (To my destiny)

I know what I’m here for
Thank you
For showing me
Directing me
To my destiny
(4xs)

I know what I’m here for
I know what I’m here for
I know what I’m here for

Blah day turned FAB!

February 5, 2008

Hola! So, it REALLY sucks at my job because I can’t even log onto to WordPress to post! WHAT!!! Yeah, the internet is on SERIOUS lock here; IT’S CRAZY!!! So anyways, I stayed up WAY to late last night, for no reason other than that. I think I was anxious about something, but I couldn’t figure it out, so finally at about 2:30 am I slipped on my sleeping mask and lights out!

Ofcourse I overslept and hit my alarm for…AN HOUR! lol! I’m crazy! So I get up, pray, don’t read my daily devotions – tsk! tsk! (I need those in my life to start my day off right, so I already knew!) I’m rushing around, getting ready etc etc, listening to my Yolanda Adams Morning show, WISHING I had read my devotions, but no time – sad right? I know! UGH! So I’m feeling all kinds of blah – it’s foggy and rainy – I can’t stand it! Get in
my car and think to myself, “Self, let’s go get a Venti Caramel Apple Spice with EXTRA Caramel at the Starbucks drive through!” LOL! Stupid idea THAT was! The drive through line was MAAAAD long, so I backed out, stomach grumbling and all, and went on my merry way to work!

I finally get to work, STARVED! – see I belive in eating breakfast within 45 minutes of waking up so your metabolism is set! But, because I was running late…anyways! I’m sitting at work, BLOWN that the internet is on SUCH lock, more so than before – I mean I can’t even log onto ThisNext to do my fashion stuff! – BLOWN! so clearly I’m NOT in a good mood, I’m cranky, annoyed, just, I can’t stand to be at work at this moment. So I
call my mom – lol! Poor woman, I call her all the time and complain! She’s like, “Chile, what do you want me to do about it! At least it’s a J-O-B! Go to the library and get a book!”

FAB advice mom! So I did just that and turned my outing into a fabulous one! I looked up the book I wanted to check out, Conversations with God, called and had them put it on hold for me.  So where I work there is a plethora of Luxury stores – Tiff’s, Hermes, Louis V, Saks, Neimans, Gucci etc… I quickly plot my outing – go to check out book, go to Starbucks, finally, and go to Hermes and Louis V to check out bags[that I have no
business buying.]

On the way to the library, I get side tracked and go to Trader Joes! I LOOOOOVE this store! I had a ball in there! Such a cute little Organic store! I like Whole Foods, but it’s MAD expensive so me and Trader Joes just became good friends! So I finish in Trader Joes and head to the library, pick up my book, then it’s off to Hermes!!! Only, I had spent so much time at the libary and Trader Joes that I only had like 10 minutes left and ten minutes is NOT enough time to peruse the likes of beautiful Hermes bags in depth!

Either way, my frown has been turned upside down – good thing, I don’t want to get frown lines – and today is going to be a BEAUTIFUL, GOD BLESSED DAY!!

Love HIM Like I Do

December 27, 2007

Hello world (read, those few of you who stop by 🙂 ) Just wanted to post this song by Dietrick Haddon, “Love Him Like I Do.”  I absolutely love this song!!! If you don’t live in an area where you can get Praise 104.1 I feel sorry for you! It’s the GREATEST station EVER!!! 24/7 constant Gospel music! I don’t listen to anything else, ever! Ever since It came out, my radio has been tuned to 104.1.  It’s got those songs that you need to hear, right at that moment! 

This morning they played a mix for me lol! A medley of “The Storm is over now”, “Trouble Don’t Last Always”, “Love Him Like I Do” and a few others. I mean, come on, how could you not be inspired and feel the love of God from those songs!  I’ve been going through IT and I appreciate having 104.1 to turn to during the day and night; it truly gets me through the days sometimes. 

I truly hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!! And I pray you all have a prosperous New Year!!! I for one can say I am glad, no THRILLED to see 2007 go away and am excited for all the new possibilities for 2008!

 *besos*, B

Love Him Like I Do 

I had to tell you first
The Pastor of the church
My folks and friends
Listen to these words
See GOD save me (yeah)
From myself when no one else was around
And it was only by his grace
His mercy is favor
Cause I know I don’t deserve
All the love he shows (oh)
And how he let me know (oh)
He never brought me side
That’s why I love him like I do
I Love him like I do
I Love him like I do
That’s why I love him like I do
I, I

See I got a testimony how to save my soul
For hours just sinner left in the floor
Give me a second chance
Save me from myself
Came to my rescue
When I needed help

You want to know why, I love him the way I do
That’s when the enemy said I was thru
He took me from the bottom
And put me on the top
He laid his hands on me
That’s why I can’t be stopped

That’s why I love him like I do
I Love him like I do (my my my)
I Love him like I do (I do, I do, do do do)
That’s why I love him like I do (I love him like I do I love him like I do)
I, I

Somebody told me we overcome by our testimony
Bet you wouldn’t believe how doubt and fear use to paralyze me
God’s hand let me thru the test
And he brought out the very best of me

And now I never forget
Gonna tell the world what you mean to me (ye… ah… yeah

That’s why I love him like I do
I Love him like I do
I Love him like I do
That’s why I love him like I do
I, I

Let me tell you why I love
Because he been so good me
He takes care of me
He keeps love me yeah
I love him
I love him

I Love him like I do
I Love him like I do
I Love him like I do
I Love him like I do
