Wishing all my followers a massive HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Every turn of a new dawn we make promises, make resolutions and set goals, but how man of them do we actually carry out come December? This is yet another opportunity to do this but take it all the way. Lets not build reputations with our mouths, but rather our actions. It’s now another opportunity to speak to that person who’s been on your mind, climb that wall you’ve been staring at for so long, apply for that job you’ve been dreaming about and take that we’ll deserved holiday.

Lets Go!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

The Greatest Artist

God is the greatest artist
To whom no one can compare,
Streaking sunsets very beautiful,
Painting rainbows in the air.

Brushing green the hillside scene,
Blotting blue the sky above,
Splashing flowers ‘cross the ground beneath,
Shading white clouds with His glove.

Of the wonders God has made
There is none that is so fair
As the smile He paints upon your face
When you realize He’s there.

“… I know from whence my help cometh. I do know that. And I know that it’s strong within me. If ever I get low, I get weak, I know where I can turn to. I love the spirit of God so much that I’m not willing to trade that for anything. I’m not trading that for nothing. For nothing. Because I feel joy that I can’t even speak about. And peace that passes all understanding…

…I was by myself so much during those years in L.A., and I would just sit and I would read the word and I would stop and I would think, “What do you want me to know?” The Holy Spirit would speak to me and it would guide me. And I wouldn’t know how I would get to this place or that place. Or how I did this or how I was go into the studio and sing again. But I did it…” – Whitney Houston

Reason 4da Season…

Hey guys and girls, I would just love to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Its crazy how quick this time of the year comes around so quick and once again we’re probed to remember why exactly we celebrate it. I was once told that, CHRISTMAS is not all about the exchange of GIFTS or EATING, but more so about us reflecting on the past year and EVALUATING our actions and coming up with ways to make ourselves better. Its the time of year when we RECOGNISE the birth of the LORD JESUS, this symbolises new LIFE, new BEGINNINGS and thus should encourage us to renew our minds for the coming year. The story of the BIRTH of JESUS is one of ‘rejection by many’ and ‘struggle’ but the ultimate outcome is a new KING, a new example/role model of the potentially an AMAZING life we can all endeavour. It shows us that regardless of our struggles and rejections through out the year, there’s always a turning into a better more fulfilled life. We have to experience valleys in order to climb mountains, we have to be presented with the word ‘no’ in order to appreciate the word ‘yes’, but our hardships are not for long because GOD’S MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING!

Also, we remember that this is the time of year when after months of searching The 3 Wise Men finally find JESUS and present him with PRECIOUS gifts. The exchange of gifts is symbolic to the love we should have for others and should this exchange should really be carried out in this fashion, but CHRISTMAS has been commercialised so much that we DISREGARD its entire purpose and rather made it all about GREED and who can give and receive the best material things. The WISE MEN gave Jesus gifts because they knew he was a KING, people will BLESS you because they know you are WORTH MORE THAN RUBIES and DETSTINED FOR GREATNESS. Like Jesus, the Wise Men knew him before he was born, the same way God knew you before you was conceived and the love that he has for will be manifested in blessings upon your life. But please remember that we are blessed accordingly so now is the time to reflect and establish how the coming year will be different from the present, what will you do differently?

Finally, we remember CHRISTMAS to be a time for family! We spend time with loved ones we haven’t seen for many months/years and once again we can build on or start to build a relationship with them. RELATIONSHIPS are extremely important and should not be taken lightly. Jesus was born to be an example of how we should be in relations with GOD. He demonstrated this through his relationships! Eight out of the Ten COMMANDMENTS are about our relationships, how we treat God, our Families and our Neighbours, therefore it is very important that we are humble and in one way or another bless everyone who crosses our paths. Love your family, because they are the only thing in life that you do not get you chose, God has a purpose for why he placed you where you are!!!

I wasn’t planning on preaching this morning, but hey, God is still good!!! So with all that said, Have a Wonderful Day!!!

London’s Burning…

A riot is the language of the unheard…” – Martin Luther King Jr

 

Monday Morning Workout…

‘I Got The Heart Of A Winner…’ – Dappy

Hey Hey Hey… Hope all is well with you guys. Hope all is well, I’m sure you all had an eventful weekend, especially us living in LONDON. Saturday saw the uproar of a riot and LOOTING stemming from a protest in relation to a killing of a North London resident. Well, the current situation in London is WW3, but I refuse to entertain the situation because I feel that the RIOTS and looting are now being carried out by OPPORTUNISTS who are just taking advantage of a horrible situation. What those involved fail to realise is that the GOVERNMENT want them to react like CRIMINALS because that STEREOTYPE has already been issued, its sad you see young children throwing their lives away just and being followers rather than leaders in a society where we lack STRONG BLACK LEADERSHIP! There are so many opportunities where we can actually rise up as a people and prove everyone wrong, but instead we fall into the trap and labels that the government has given us. Instead of getting up and being proactive, people are just following the majority, but they fail to forget what will happen to them tomorrow.

So I say to all those who do not condone violence and and require better things in life. We need people in SOCIETY who are willing to step outside the box, not jump on the BANDWAGON and do their own THING. Having FAITH and BELIEVING that you can achieve far greater than what’s being offered is a good place to be in. Being an INDIVIDUAL and being YOURSELF is all you can ever be, if you believe the total opposite of the crowd, you’ve already achieved a lot.

Live your life your way and with NO REGRETS…

Monday Morning Workout – My Condolences…

 

Hey guys, hope all is well…

I wanted to dedicate this weeks workout session to some we lost over the weekend. AMY WINEHOUSE was definitely in a league of her own and it’s a shame her life ended so soon.  I know everybody has their thoughts surrounding her death but lets just go beside the point and admire her the kind of person she was, she was PASSIONATE, UNIQUE and laid out a platform for artists such as ADELE to really make a mark on the music industry.

It’s amazing how sometimes when we look at celebrities, may wish that we were in their shoes, but the actual fact is the grass is not always GREENER on the other side. There are pressures and demon involved with FAME, if you do not have a STRONG foundation, you will never be content.
