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

The Truth About Me

Standard

We are loved, no matter who we are or what we’ve done. Not just because our family and friends love us, but because the one who gave us life loves us.
It’s that simple and yet easily forgotten. We often look for the complex and hard things, but forget that God is often in the simplest of things.

But imagine if we wake up everyday knowing that God loves us.
Imagine if we see ourselves through the eyes of the creator.
Imagine if we see everyone we come in contact with through the eyes of the one who created them.
I truly believe it will start off a love revolution…the love of God.
So let’s not forget these little things

The song ‘The Truth about Me’ from Grammy award artist Mandisa (who is one of my favourite artists) is a very good reminder about the way God sees us.
I love the bridge which says:
“I would sleep better at night
Wake up with hope for another day
I would love even if it costs me
Take a chance and know I’m gonna be okay
I would dare to give my life away….
It would change EVERYTHING if only I believed the truth about me”

Grace

Standard

Just heard this quote
“What the law required, grace fulfilled”
It reminded me of the song ‘How He Loves’ – Kim Walker. I especially love Anthony Evan’s version.
My favourite lyrics are
“If grace is an ocean, we all are sinking”
“I don’t have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way He loves us”
So grateful for God’s grace and his love.
Listen and enjoy the rest of your day knowing that you are loved.

What other songs come to mind concerning the grace of God? Please share.
