God’s Promises & Your Heart Desires Vs Your Dreams

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will grant you your heart desires” (Psalm 37:4). “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all other things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). Careful observation shows that your heart desires are often connected to the talents that are inside of you; that’s because God didn’t just bless you with those talents, but He supplied the heart desires to go along with them. What typically remains to be discovered is the path to take in life, and the direction to follow. Being human, there’s the tendency to pick the obvious sociocultural option that is most popular. For instance, if I love music and I can sing, then God “must” be calling me to be a music artist who will turn superstar someday; if my school’s theater director tells me that I’m a “natural” and excellent in plays, then God “must” be leading me to be a big time actor who will be recognized with accolades across the world someday…and so on. Fortunately for us, …

Album Review ~ Worthy Of It All By Jeremy Gibson

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date May 4, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review Worthy Of It All breathes gentle power—the very nature of our loving Father! So there couldn’t be a more befitting way to worship God, especially when the atmosphere is filled with such humility that it inspires surrender in the heart of a listener. This is Jeremey Gibson’s unique way of worshipping God. There’s a steady confidence that flows and soaks into the soul of a surrendered listener, so that the true power of worship is displayed in the abounding joy that overflows in the midst of worship. It’s interesting to note how the conventional contemporary worship style does well in reminding the old believer of the good old days, while remaining thankful for the newness of the present. The Worthy Of It All album, though titled after one of the tracks, is everything that the name evokes. God is good, faithful, mighty, and worthy of all our praise! *Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and …

Album Review ~ Cliff & Antoinette Murray

Category Religious/Christian Genre Urban Praise Release Date April 20, 2018. Rating 4.5 Stars Review There’s a quintessential loveliness to the manner in which Cliff and Antoinette express their music, such that simple but deep melody marries the beautiful complexity of rich singing. As they aim to do one thing—bring down to earth the glory of God—their passionate voices ring to heights that are clear, true, and inspiring, accompanied by an organic ambiance from the sweet native sounds of the piano and semi-acoustics. This album—self-titled as Cliff & Antoinette Murray—is a classy combination of the ever dependable contemporary, the enchanting impressiveness of classic music, with a lovely twist of semi-Acapella tucked in all the right places, and in such a way that celebrates and showcases the striking progressive nature and journey of music from the past to present. This is what music is all about! And the Murrays—a dynamic duo—don’t hold back from start to finish, so that the soft smoothness with which Antoinette opens the album is rightly matched with a powerful close that would …

Article ~ Your Best Days Are Ahead Of You

Some of the most difficult and confusing days to live as individuals are the ones where we believe that we’ve finished living out our purpose; that the best we have to offer has already been given, or that we haven’t even been allowed the chance to do so, but our lives have already been cut short. Typically, people who fit into this category include: those living with a terminal illness, those who’ve had their dreams or desired career prematurely cut short through a painful and catastrophic event, the old and retired…the list could go on. In this new place, you may feel useless and wander into a state of despair and depression, even pondering on why God has kept you alive past the days where you “mattered” to the world. Let me say this: whether you believe it or not, your best days are ahead of you if you let God lead you on this new path. There’s a season for everything under the sun. There’s a season for your glory days and to build, …
