Some people think it's all about waiting. While others do nothing while constantly complaining about what they want and what they don't have, instead of taking someone sad and just making them laugh. It's not so hard to wait on the Lord. Serving other people is what that means. Learning how to be a servant is a problem with people who only think about themselves. Always wanting thing to go their way instead of helping someone else achieve their goals and dreams. Didn't you know that your destiny is tied up with someone else's success? How you ask? By helping people reach the goals that God gave them to achieve. It's impossible in this world to achieve anything in this world on your own. If you're helping someone then someone is helping you. It's all about sharing the dream. Sharing the goal. Sharing the vision. God will place people in your life that have what it takes and what you need to reach the next level in life. But when you are all tied up into yourself thinking that you don't need other people or you're better than the next person, you will have a hard time reaching anything you put your time into because it's not about you, it's about God. Become a servant first. Things will start to work out for you then. Trust God. And wait on Him and His people. S friend of yours, JMic
How does one define love? Is it something that one can see? Is it something that you can feel? Can you smell love? Is love something can be tasted? What does love sound like? I'm asking all of these questions because I really want to know what you think love is. I've been told since I was small that phrase we all seem to know so well, "I love you." Does that mean that I should automatically believe that person can actually feel that way about me? Well, let's examine this, if you don't mind. Some one that I'm very close to told me the that I should know how much they love me. And I asked, "Why?' Without giving it much thought they responded, "because I told you so!" Interesting opinion, in my opinion because I honestly believe that you can't possibly know if anyone really loves you. Only if you take the time to realize that we are in fact surrounded by love. How is that, you ask? Allow me to explain. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Everything you see and everything there is was made by God. Everything there is on this planet was formed from the ground. Meaning that everything there is that you see, God made. Everything. God made the universe, the galaxy, the stars, the sun, the moon, the atmosphere, the air, the rain, fire & all the elements, you name it God made it and He made it all for us. He said after He made everything there is and everything we see, "that's good", meaning, He likes what He made. Notice that I didn't say "liked" and I said "likes". Why? Because it is still reproducing itself after He made it or is self sustain. The sun that gives us light has enough fuel to last for the next 100 billion years. The moon. that appears dead, still gives us light and it purpose seems to be to keep the waters on our plant in balance uses by earths gravity that keeps it in orbit. Which in fact He created them both on the fourth day. Then He made all the fish, all of the birds, all of the land animals, all the insects, millions of species of living creatures that were made to keep the earth in complete balance.
Then He formed from the dust of the ground man. He molded him, shaped him and once He saw that man was ready or complete, He breathed the breath of life into man and man became a living soul. Then He formed each animal, bird, insect and fish before man and man gave name to each thing God made. God, seeing that man was alone caused him to fall asleep. Then from one of man s ribs, he formed a woman. God told them both to be fruitful and multiply. He told them to take dominion and subdue the earth. And then He gave man a choice. To love Him or love the world He created for them. SO, my friend and I were discussing love and I simply asked, "how can you define love, as we know it, unless you believe in the love of God, for there is no love greater than HIs for us?" You really have to look all around you and see the imprint of what God's love is for us. What if He took the air away? I said to my friend, "if my thoughts can't in no way match the thoughts of a being that created all of this, everything I see, in my most impressively creative imagination; when as far as I can go is to have the intelligence to make a car, a house, a boat, a plane, a rocket, a pen, a chair, paper, tools, etc., from the ground God made there must be a purpose for it. Then it must be He, God who also gave me the intelligence to make whatever I need to sustain myself here on the earth that God made. I can't imagine why God did this nor reason with you why or how for that matter. In all of that, I'm supposed to know how much you love me? When we lie, cheat, steal ,kill, rob, and choose to do these things? If I cannot read a person's mind, how can I possibly tell how much a person loves me? Jesus said, "Trust NO man, for a man heart is sinful", "No man is good, only God in heaven is good". God can't lie. God predestined us. God knows us. God is everywhere. God can read your mind. God gave us a choice. Life or death, blessing or cursing. God also so love the world that He made HIs only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have ever lasting life. WOW! That's a lot of stull to accept and believe. If you're having problems with that, just look around and tell me what you see. Where did it come from? If it came from the ground, and God made the ground, the water, the clouds, the air, the atmosphere, the moon, the sun, the stars, the galaxy, the universe, for you; to me, that is the definition of what love is. God is love. A friend of yours, JMic
Take me to the limit; try my heart Lord. Repeatedly test me as You do and try my heart Lord. You're making me stronger from within to without any excuses; I have none. You're giving me so much to bear, so much to say, so much to share. You've tried me over and over before I knew You were; before I could see You were there, before I knew You. You're everywhere all at once. Everywhere with all of us. Because Your love causes You to care to indwell with us to freely share our joy, our pain. Our sunshine, our rain. Our good days, our bad; nobody could ever survive the extremely bad day You had; for us. You know me. You made me. To think of You Lord, constantly. Wherever I go, no matter where I'd be; You're right there to fight me for me. Fight my pain and make me see You've lightened my way so I could see Your face in everything I see. I feel Your love shining over me. Watch what I do, You see me Daddy. Play with the toys that You've given to me. To share with the world You made for me. To subdue and replenish like You've instructed me. Show me how Lord by guiding me. Towards Your throne, Your majesty. I'll bring my friends, who'll follow me, to meet my Daddy, then play with me. We'll run and sing and praise Your name the day won't end and it won't rain. No shadow cast ever again for You are light an eternal flame. Sometimes I shy away from pain when You push me to it to try again. You pick me up from falling like You did when I heard You calling in the midst of the whisper soft as leaves floating to the ground where I lay my heart You were drawing to choose. To win or to lose. To do or do not. To live or to die. Blessing or cursing living truthful or lying. Not denying my heart is all broken down from the battles I wedge looking to gain but an edge just to please You. No longer afraid, no longer in pain, no longer dead. Try my heart Father again as You said to give me hope so we can break bread as You promised. My mind is in awe, I run to the call, I hurry to You to once and for all find my peace. My joy. My life.My love. My God. Now as pure gold I stand before those saint who then they foretold of a boldness, provoked by the Word. I believe what I heard. Try my heart Lord. A friend of Yours, JMic
It seems my time here is done. I've done everything, I've seen everybody, I've been everywhere etc., and in all of that I've come to realize one thing, there's no place like home. Home, where I was born, you know? Home, where I first got a glimpse of what life was like. Home, where all my real friends and family are. Home, where everything I do really matters. I've enjoyed my life here in Texas, don't get me wrong. I've met and have broken bread with some amazingly talented people. But there is something about being in the NYC that brings me to a place in my mind that nobody can remove. So, since I am an Artist, since I am multi-talented (I've earned and developed my gifts and talents) since I've really got something to say to the world, I might as well go home and say it. But, all have to say right now is, I'M COMING HOME FAMILY! If NYC is the center of the world, I should be where my gifts and talents are needed and will be appreciated. Where I can be myself and strive to achieve each and every goal, dream and purpose God has set before me. I've heard that "Chance favors the prepared mind"; more over, it prefers a prepared mind. Because what I am and what I have to offer is not for me, it's for those out there needing encouragement, motivation, inspiration and focus. And most importantly, I have a word from the Lord that I need to share. And the basis of that word is this: Jesus loves you and so do I. So get ready, cause here I come! And I'm bringing that GOOD with me. Peace! A friend of yours, JMic
Ready or not here it comes; a variety of issues that seem to be thoroughly throwing you off your mix. Bringing new meaning to frustration. New faces start popping up, trying to get into your business. Especially when you've made an art form out of minding your business and keeping people out your business. You just can't table this unseen distraction designed to floor you. What's up? What is it? You tell me.., because without wondering if it describes you, I've got my own challenges to contend with; you dig? Keeping it real though, God never lets you know when He's about to change a season in your life. I guess, if you've been through enough of them, I mean, actually knowing what they are; seasons. But rest assured He's training your resolve and your faith. Because I guarantee it's going to take every ounce of faith you have to get through your season. I know. So do you. Peace! A friend of yours, JMic
Too many times in life we find ourselves looking for answers from individuals who really don't have the slightest clue. And often we make the mistake of trusting untrustworthy people. People with no influence, no experience, no resources and no plan. While within each of us the truth exists. I spent most of my young life searching for an alternative bedsides what my parents taught me. Thinking maybe there was someone smarter with abetter solution to actual pain I was causing myself through my own disobedience. Not merely rebellious disobedience towards my parents but, rebellious disobedience towards my God. Especially when I was of age meaning an adult. Like being 18 or later 21 really meant something. I was young and foolish, immature and destructive. Drugs and all sorts of immoral acts lead me down a path that should have killed me before now. The streets I once depended on became along with myself my greatest enemy. You name it, I've done it. From overdosing to time in prison, I've done it. So, what have I learned after all the pain, rejection, conflict, embarrassment, neglect that I caused myself, my family and everyone who once tried to help me? Honesty? Nothing..,Because if a person does not learn from life who is he? What is he? Why is he? So, I finally did the one thing I always knew would work but was too stubborn to try. From my heart I turned to God. He was right there waiting for me to turn to Him. He didn't let me die in my sin, He rescue me from it. Are you willing to let go of your past and turn to Him? Are you willing to forgive others who hurt you or willing to forgive yourself for what you've done to your life? God is waiting. He loves you. He wants you. He needs you. To acknowledge His love for you. To give you a hope and a future. To give you a brand new life. Are you willing? A friend of yours, JMic Whyzgi
"If you are ashamed of Me before men, I will be ashamed of you before My Father" are the words of Jesus Christ. Today when given the opportunity to stand and declare my true heart, my true feeling about my life and what I consider my ministry, I chose. Joel Osteen asked the congregation whom wanted to receive Christ and whom wanted to re-dedicate their lives to Him. While pondering the question I thought, "I know there have been problems and issues in my own life. I know that I really need to get some things straight with the Lord before I move forward in my life and ministry. I know that I sow into the lives of those who follow me and try my best to be the man God called me to be. But, do I?". That very moment I stood so Pastor Osteen could pray for me. Knowing that I have issues in my life I need to clean up. Knowing that I want God to take seriously my efforts to not only please Him but. to sincerely reach those who need Him. I have to humble myself and allow my heart to be lead by the Lord and do what's right for me right now. Not next week, not tomorrow but, right now. I chose to stand up for God. I chose to stand up for righteousness. I chose to be an example for my children, my friends, my followers. Why? Because God has blessed me with so many opportunities. With so many gifts and talents. With so many chances to truly change. I am free now. No more worries about my past mistakes. Free. No more headaches about my future. Free. Free to live free of everything that was holding me back from a real relationship with the God that I claim to be mine who blesses me so much. He woke me up this morning. I had no excuse why I couldn't be in Church today. Cool thing is, He knew I would make the decision I made. He foreknew my heart and my desire to completely follow Him. Pastor Joel said, the very moment I stood up, my past sins and mistakes were wiped clean. I was in fact "FORGIVEN". Friends, I am going to stay that way. "FORGIVEN". The sky is the limit now. No holding back, no going back to what kept me from the true blessing of God. I encourage you to do the same. Watch the short video on my Twitter page and find Jesus Christ for yourself. I have been through so much in my life. So have you. I found peace today that I never knew. You can find it too. You be the leader that you need to be for someone else and God will bless you.

Too many times it seems that the ones you love the most break your heart. It's okay. Because though nobody's expectations are the same, still it hurts to see what we do to ourselves. Some of us are kind while others are rather mean. Some show astounding compassion towards people while some are heartless and hateful. Some people help his brother or sister while others could care less looking to see you fall rejoicing when you do. Maybe it's because what we're all exposed to daily. So much violence in the world. So much hatred. Is it so hars to love one another when the most important thing most human beings want, need and search endlessly for is love? Christ gave us a new commandment. He said to love one another. It's easy to love those who love you but, love your enemies. Those who hurt you. Those who use you. Those who hate you. Love them; there you will receive your reward. We are ALL family. We are ALL human beings. Sinful and imperfect. God's love for us perfects us through believing in Him for He is love. Once you accept that, you will be too. I love you! A friend of yours, JMic
I started playing the piano at the age of three. Everyone was so excited it seemed for me but, what it really was they were excited for themselves. I instantly became an entertainer. It seemed to me at the time that my family was more interested in showing off my newly discovered skills than thinking whether or not it was something that I really wanted to do. Practice, practice, practice. I was always having to give up part of my day, weekend, friends etc., for the next recital, show or performance. My recording were paraded around for everyone to listen to totally embarrassing me in the process. Meanwhile, my skills were being polished and refined into something that I couldn't see as a child. My late Grandmother paid for all of my music lessons. Her and my mother bought all of my instruments. They invested good money for me to become whatever I wanted to become and I hated every minute of it. I didn't see the bigger picture. I loved my piano, my drums, my guitar, my bass and I've been singing ever since I can remember. But, I hated the attention. I was extremely shy. It seemed whenever I practiced music, all of my friends and most of the neighborhood would find themselves in my yard trying to see me rehears and dancing to my music. There was always an audience. I now realize that God was preparing me for something greater than myself. Not everyone has the ability to entertain others. To make people happy, to make people smile or feel good about themselves. Not everyone can sing, dance, or play instruments and make a difference in the lives of people. It is a gift from God. It is so relaxing watching LeBron James play the game I love so much. He's amazing. Or watch Serena Williams play Tennis. She's a super athlete. Tiger Woods is the best Golfer I've ever seen play and I don't like golf. I will watch him play though. To see individuals perform at those high levels is very inspiring. But, without the support of their fans and the people who sowed into their young lives to become something special, they wouldn't be. Without you guys and whatever support that you bring to the table, the stars of today wouldn't have the confidence to complete their goals to be the best. We all are supportive to those who can. In that same breathe, who has been supportive of what you do? How many followers do you have on Twitter? How many people you never knew support you on FB, YouTube, Vine etc.,? The dreams is us as a people being supportive of each other. Doctors support Doctors, Lawyers support other Lawyers, Police officers support Polices officers, Musicians support Musicians and ordinary people support ordinary people. When God said replenish the world and subdue it, what did He mean? I'll tell you. I believe He meant for us all to work together and build something that works for us all. He has inspired each of us to do something that is helpful to the next person. We as a people need each other. Sometimes we need Doctors, right. Sometimes we need Lawyers, Police officers whether we like them or not and that ordinary person just hanging out; sometimes we need them too. We need each other. So, I don't take lightly the support I receive from any of you. Jesus said to love one another. That was a brand new commandment He gave us. Why? So we learn to work together to build the dream.
