It’s literally 12 am.  I just came home from picking up food and Ice from the Huddle House. I’m so full. Lol But not so much from the food. My spirit is FULL!!! The past few weeks God has really been working on me. In a ton of ways.  I decided to cut out a lot of things and focus on God and His goodness.  His faithfulness.

Lately,  I’ve been playing gospel songs from my youth.  Man,  those songs have the best messages.  They’re so heartfelt. They have meaning.  The one I’ve been playing over and over is an oldie but goodie. I’m going to interpret the song in my own words. You’ll see how they effect me… This is Richard Smallwood’s “Center of my Joy”

Jesus, You’re the center of my joy
All that’s good and perfect comes from You
You’re the heart of my contentment
Hope for all I do
Jesus, You’re the center of my joy
(KB’s interpretation- Jesus is everything.  Everything that’s good in your life comes from Him. He will make you content. And He’ll give you hope in everything you do for Him!)

When I’ve lost my direction
You’re the compass for my way
You’re the fire and light
When nights are long and cold
In sadness, You’re my laughter
That shatters all my fears
When I’m all alone, Your hand is there to hold
(KB’s interpretation-when I’ve went my own way. When I tried to do things the way I wanted to,  He always guides me back on the right path. When I’m lonely and depression is overtaking me,  He makes me think of the good things.  When I feel all alone God is always there to hold and comfort me! Whew!  #WontHeDoIt

You are why I find pleasure
In the simple things in life
You’re the music in the meadows and the streams
The voices of the children, my family, and my home
You’re the source and finish of my highest dreams
(KB’s interpretation-Because of how good God is, I don’t need material things.  I take pleasure in the simple things. Walks, being in nature, listening to the wind and birds.  Hearing Brandon talk to me. Watching Chance’s videos. Laying in bed with my Mom.  Laughing with Darrick and Memo. Being spoiled by my Daddy. Enjoying my family! I know that He loves me and has my best interest at heart. What an awesome God!!)

Jesus, You’re the center of my joy
All that’s good and perfect comes from You
You’re the heart of my contentment
Hope for all I do
Jesus, You’re the center of my joy
(KB’s interpretation-He’s everything!!!!)
Jesus, You are the center of my joy!
Jesus, You are everything!

my joy,  in my sorrow and hard times when I’m missing my baby and I feel like nothing is going right.
You’re my hope for tomorrow!
When I’m lonely and feeling sad. YOU are the lifter of my head.  (like right this very moment)
You’re my music. You’re my song. You’re my joy all day long.

You’re the center of my joy!!!

I just want everyone to reflect on God’s goodness and faithfulness. Hasn’t He been good to you in spite of how you treat Him?  He’s awesome and I encourage everyone to know Him for themselves.  You won’t regret it. He loves you more than you can EVERYTHING imagine. Right now,  the devil doesn’t like me. And Satan.  I feel the same way. But nothing that you can try will amount to anything!!

Know God for yourself.  Your family name can’t get you brownie points with God. He’s going to ask about you and not them on judgment day. Something to Ponder. Is your heart right?

Make Jesus your center!! When man let’s you down.  HE’S ALWAYS THERE!!!

Goodnight and be blessed. I also ask for special prayers for a friend of mine.  I know that God is in control and that he loves you.  Everything will be fine and I can’t wait to see you in Nashville again…
