INTERRACIAL LOVE SONG

britt nicole, lecraeWhite Girl:

I tried to cover my shine
I’ve tried stayin in the lines
I, I, I, don’t wanna hide
No not tonight
 
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want you to look me in the eye, eye, eye
 
Ready or not here, here, here, here, here, I come
I’m about to show you where the light comes from, oh, oh
Ready or not here here I come
This is who I am I won’t hide it
I’m a take it all over the world
To the young, to the old every boy and girl
Ready or not here, here, I come
I’m a show the world where the love is
 
I’m not ever selling out
Love and God is what it’s all about
Give him verything to see the lost get found
Yeah it’s goin down
 
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want u to look me in the eye eye eye

Black Boy:

Refuse to keep this buried deep inside of me
Yeah this little light of mine
It’s time to let it shine a bit
Cause there’s no point in hiding it
It’s everything I am
The source off all my hope
And it’s the reason why I stand
I pledge allegiance to be somebody real, there’s no more holding it back
I’m showing them how I feel
Cause love is more than a word
It’s a noun and a verb
And hiding it is absurd,
Ya Heard?
 
How many knew this song is actually the top 2013 Christian hit called Ready or Not by Nicole Britt aka white girl and Lacrea aka black boy?
 
I changed the title because I was listening to the song in my car the other day and I kept thinking these two are talking about themselves more than God. Beside the single reference to God, you get lost in coming out. I thought they were coming out to tell the world about their interracial relationship. She’s saying not tonight and he’s saying cause there is no point in hiding it. Hiding what? Anyway, someone help me out here. 
 

WHAT HAPPENED TO LOVE?

MLKjrDo you love me? Do you desire the best things in life to happen to me? Do you want to see me prosper? Are these questions making you uncomfortable? Why? When is the last time you put aside your pride and need to be above and not beneath to show love?

Not some anemic substandard love, the love that causes an inner movement. Not some ungodly lust, but your tongue filled with words that edify.

You have been hurt. I know. You have been lied to. You have been cast aside by someone in the church. You think because you have been hurt that closing the doors to love is the best policy. No, no. Not so.

There is nothing in life more precious than love. There is no greater power and motivation on earth. A man’s love for a woman can be so powerful that he will start a war with a nation. Ask Samson. So powerful that fear looks at it and fears. Love is relentless.

When executed properly it will destroy burdens and remove sickness. When executed properly, it will melt the hardest heart and break into tears the strong man.

God himself is love. You will never be more like God, then when you love your enemy as yourself. Remember, God rains on the just and unjust. The secret to having love is simple and hard. I have found that when I worship God in song DAILY, the anointing of God falls and empowers me to love others. It is only when God is the object of my affection that I will have the expression lived out in representation of my conversation.

Lovers Only

WORRY?

dsc00960Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up. Proverbs 12:25

It is easy to say “don’t worry be happy” but without a cheerful word the saying becomes useless. “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” Philippians 4:6

When worry visits you? Remember this blog and pray “Lord Jesus Christ get the devil off my back and tell him to cease with his words and open my ears to your message that says I can do all things in your name that strengthens me.”

*Note: worry is cancelled through prayer + praise to God, whose Spirit fills and settles down the believer.
