Overcomer Monday: Good Day

Standard

It’s Overcomer Monday!!!! 

Just want to encourage you guys because I know Mondays can be a bit tough for most people myself included. But we are all overcomers like we said last week! So lets face this week as overcomers knowing that all things are possible once we’ve got God at our side! He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Psalm 5:11-12 (NLT)

But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy. For you bless the godly, O Lord; you surround them with your shield of love

No matter the day, no matter the time, make up in your mind to take over your life and choose to be successful

Go ahead and have a good day!

Good Day – J.Moss

Valentine’s day

Standard

I love Valentines day! it’s one of my favorite days of the year. I believe that Valentine’s day should not just be a one day thing, but we should shower our family and friends with love everyday.

I usually spend most of my day dreaming and praying about the future and of course listening to my Valentine’s Day playlist. So I have decided to share with you some of the songs on the playlist.

To the couples, have an awesome day showering love on each other. To the singles, have a fabulous day loving yourself and the folks around you, hide your love away and get your white boots ready!

And most importantly let’s not forget the one who gave us life and the reason to love…God.

JOHN 15:12 (KJV)
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

MATTHEW 22:37-39 (KJV)
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I’ll also be tweeting the rest of my playlist, so follow me on twitter @unicalasa and don’t forget to like my Facebook Page

Speak Life

Standard

When you spoke this morning, did your words have life? Did they lift someone’s spirit up or did they bring it down

Words have tremendous power on people and even on ourselves. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21: The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (NIV)

You can change your world by changing your words… Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue. – Joel Osteen

So speak life or don’t speak at all!

Two songs come to mind when talking about the power of the tongue: ‘Speak Life’ – Tobymac and Words – Hawk Nelson feat Bart Millard (of MercyMe)

Enjoy the song, let me know what you think and share with me your favorite lyric. You can follow me on twitter @unicalasa and like my facebook page. Be sure to check in tomorrow, I’ll be sharing with you my Valentine’s Day playlist! You guys are awesome!

“Lift your head a little higher,
Spread the love like fire,
Hope will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the words you say.”

Speak Life – Tobymac

“Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts or put it out”

Words – Hawk Nelson

Album Review: You Have My Heart – Anthem Lights

Standard

What I love most about the album is the honesty and the sincerity. If I could describe the album in a sentence it would be “Great vocals, deep lyrics with an important message and honesty all rolled up in one”

The album starts off strong with the title track “You Have My Heart. The song is a prayer acknowledging that all we need is God. The next song “Follow Your Heart” seeks to correct the notion that all we need to do in this life is follow our hearts no matter what, when in fact we should let God lead our hearts and not the other way around.

The song “The Unknown” is a great reminder for someone like me who worries a lot about the future. I don’t need to know what tomorrow holds, when I know the one who holds tomorrow. “Turn Around” really displays the guy’s vocal talents and harmonies. I also love the simplicity of the song.

“Coming Home” is my favorite song on the album. It’s a song on repentance and a great reminder that I can always come back to the loving arms of my Savior”

In a nutshell, the album is AWESOME! You should get it. And I’m not the only one who thinks so because the album is currently part of the top 10 Christian Albums on Itunes. Great job guys!

You can get the album here

I also added 2 lyric videos of two songs from the album. So enjoy! When you listen, please tell what you think!

Overcomer Monday

Standard

On this blog, every monday will be “Overcomer Monday”.

An overcomer is someone who battles and fights to the end no matter what task is ahead. An Overcomer not only regains strength from his weaknesses but also sees life in a way others can’t

1 John 4:4

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

As we start a new week, I want you all to know that you are overcomers. Have an awesome and fulfilling week.

Stay in the fight till the final round!
