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.”

 

 

Enjoy and share what you love about it!

Throwback Thursday Tribute

I’ve been speaking a lot on the importance of sisterhood and female empowerment. When I reflect back I loved seeing strong females come together to create something powerful and impacting.

This Throwback Thursday Tribute edition is dedicated to some of my favorite and fashionable girl groups of all time.

TLC-Creep

To kick things off I have to list my most favorite girl group ever! I said it before and I’ll say it again I absolutely LOVE the CrazySexyCool ladies of TLC! In school I wanted to dress like them, have swag like them and be as bold as them. They were the epitome of empowerment to me.

85363071-tlc-1-blog

Not one of the ladies stood out more than the other to me. I thought that each possessed a quality to we all desired to have. They were completely comfortable with who they were and owned their style! When record labels were selling sex they kept it loose and became playful with the message of safe sex through pinning condoms on their boyish styles.

LaBelle02

Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles were not only a rocking phenomenon they were also the girls group that initiated the wild and crazy fashion! Way before Gaga, these ladies dressed like space invaders and tin men. Known for the iconic and sexually suggestive song Lady Marmalade, this group was in a league of their own.

Diana Ross and the Supremes were sophisticated glam. This group empowered femininity and did it gracefully.

Who could forget the nails of member Coco from the group SWV?? I so did NOT like them but loved the sisters with voices!! I also appreciate her being bold enough to own her trend no matter what people thought of them. I still jam the mega hit “Weak”. Do you?

First Annual Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards

Backwards styled overalls, beepers and banging vocals… XSCAPE was one of my favorite 90’s girl groups. I will never forget a friend and I creating a dance to “Just Kickin’ it” Haha! They had such a hardcore image with vocals that were completely opposite you couldn’t help being drawn in.

En Vogue was another group I adored. They were sexy, strong, and fashion icons. Although I have many songs I love from this group one of my favorites was with the collaboration of another one of my favorite groups Salt N Pepa! The entire video for “Whatta Man” is fantastic! Both groups gave female empowerment with songs like “Free your Mind” and “None of your Business”.

These are also the only two groups I know that still tour today, look fabulous while doing so and still get along with each other:)

Lastly, I could not leave this throwback tribute without mentioning Destiny’s Child. These girls were always fashion forward and even sung songs written by some of the icons listed above like Kandi Burruss of Xscape! She wrote many hits for this group in the beginning such as Bills-Bills-Bills. From beginning to now, I grew up witnessing the rise. And being from Port Arthur, TX… I had much love from this Houston born group.

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Throwback Thursday Tribute

With the introduction to their biopic its only fitting to celebrate the number one girl group of all time… TLC!

Before Destiny’s Child, in the early 90’s there was the Crazy Sexy Cool ladies of TLC that everyone in my era aspired to be like. They wore what they wanted, spoke of whatever came to their mind and showcased a new female empowerment movement greater than ever been shown previous. I remember during the 90’s I wanted to be so much like T-Boz that I even did the L hair cut.

They were the first girl group ever to hit DIAMOND status and sell an amazing 23 million records worldwide.

As many of you know, with all the success they didn’t start off with multiple millions. I love the biopic on VH1 and thought the story was well displayed. Although we all are aware of the trials the group faced, it was great to see the behind the scenes most did not share prior to this movie. The biopic drew in 4.5 million viewers! This was the networks highest telecast!

I was and still am a HUGE fan of this girl group. Some of my favorite videos are below.

Thanks!!
