Mistakes in the past STAY in the PAST

The family and I just watched Star Wars, The Last Jedi and let me tell you, we enjoyed every second of it.

SPOILERS (do not proceed if you haven’t watched the movie and intend to!)

A major theme in the movie is TO FORGET ABOUT THE PAST. The same can be said for life as a Christian. We all have things that we regret, are embarrassed about, and have done things we are not proud off. Being redeemed by Christ allows you to look at yourself in the mirror and KNOW that God love you!

Have a great day and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! PJSLB

Natalie Grant – King of the World

I love words.  I love how words can bring out emotions that just would not come up from a visual perspective.  Words allow you to use your emotions and imaginations.  From the days of my parents reading to me a bedtime story, to the days of reading my favorite author – Sidney Sheldon, words always captivated me.  Naturally, the words of the Bible is the biggest inspiration to me.  Just before the holiday season, I came across the voice of Natalie Grant while listening to K-Love.  King of the World is one of those songs that just connects you to God. The instruments in the background is soft and reflective…but its the lyrics and content of the song that got to me.

I tried to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I try to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I’ve designed
I try to pull you down so we are eye to eye

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Just a whisper of your voice can tame the seas
So who am I to try to take the lead
Still I run ahead and think I’m strong enough
When you’re the one who made me from the dust

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Oh, you set it all in motion
Every single moment
You brought it all to me
And you’re holding on to me

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget you’ve always been the king of the world
You will always be the king of the world

Just reading those lyrics give me chills.  In life, we try to make moves in our life to better our current situation and sometimes that leads us into thinking we know better than God; i am not innocent in that as well.  I think i know better and i try to “make moves” when in reality my “moves” are just making my blessings take a little longer.  King of the World  is a reminder that God is indeed the Alpha and Omega and in no way can i do ANYTHING without him

I could not find an official version of the original song but this acoustic version will give you just as much chills.

If you have Apple music, you can find the album simply by searching Natalie Grant – BE ONE.  For iTunes users can go here. Finally, if you use Spotify you can find it here.

Dont forget to follow Natalie Grant on Twitter.

Thank you Natalie for such a beautiful song that connects us to God and reminds us of his power and glory. – PJSLB

***Natalie Grant is also an author.  I will definitely have to pick up this book.***

Shawn Michaels (WWE) video testimony on The Resurrection of Gavin Stone

The more I read about The Redemption of Gavin Stone the more I can’t wait to watch this movie.  Too many times in today’s society we are surrounded by negativity and violence that when a movie comes along that inspires, we should all take notice.

It doesn’t hurt that one of my favorite wrestlers growing up plays a huge role in the film.  Shawn Michaels personal story is one that shows just how much our Lord loves us.
