I Ain’t Too Proud to Beg… for Jesus that is

So a friend and I were discussing over the weekend how we like to switch up secular lyrics with those of the word from Jesus.

I’m sitting in Starbucks getting some work done and I became inspired by a song that came on Pandora. “I Ain’t too Proud to Beg” by TLC.

Ok, I know your first thought is girrrrl… you were able to convert the lyrics of “I Ain’t too Proud to Beg” into words of light, love and encouragement from God?! I gotta finish read this!

Well, let me share with you. As the song came on, I began to tap my feet to the beat, nod my head in rhythm and while a grand smile emerged, I began to type out my inspiration. I thought of my current season. The bible states “to every thing there is a season” Eccl. 3. Two specific versus from this chapter stuck out to me that reference my current season.

“A time to tear down and a time to build, as well as a time to be silent and a time to speak.” I can’t help but take the words of TLC and change them as a cry out to God, boldly stating “I ain’t to proud to beg for God’s direction as I rebuild. I ain’t to proud to beg while I speak up declaring the promises He has shared with me. I ain’t to proud to beg for what God called my own!.”

Can I get a yes and Amen?

The definition of beg, is “to ask (someone) earnestly or humbly for something.”

I am earnestly and humbly asking God to strengthen me through the peaks and the valley. I humbly ask for Him to comfort me as my confidence is restored and boldly declare aloud those things He already promised me.

Told you this was going to be good. 🙂

The bible says “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7. I’m earnestly asking, seeking and knocking even in the midst of the storm, transition or simply stated “the world being the world.” Trust, I can find a message in just about anything due to the way my GODFIDENCE™ is set up. *BIG SMILE*

Have you ever changed up the lyrics of a song from the secular world to fit into #TeamJesus? I would love to hear your experience.

If you haven’t experienced it yet, look for the messages soon to come. Trust, when you are tapped into His frequency, it will come in anything.

Be Inspired. Speak Life. Stay Confident!

First Lady Michelle Obama on Janelle Monáe:

“First of all, I am honored to be the first Electric Lady. I got my letter in the mail — I framed it; it’s up.

I love that she is one of the young artists here who is making music that means something. She has a message. She has a voice. She has a power in her. And she understands the responsibility she has within her grasp to take these opportunities and just take off with them. She serves as a role model and an inspiration to so many young people. And I am happy to call her my friend. I am so proud of her.”
