I love the Bible story of the woman who had been subject to bleeding for 12 years in which no one was able to heal her. But, when she came up behind Jesus and touched His cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. 'Who touched Me?' Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, 'Master, the people are crowding and pressing against You.' But Jesus said, 'Someone touched Me; I know that power has gone out from Me.' Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and… told why she had touched Him and how she had been instantly healed. Then He said to her, 'Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace but you can notice three important things in this story: (1) She did something she'd never done before. She decided to try Jesus. Wise move! Faith means stepping into the unknown and the untried, finding God's grace at work in unexpected ways. (2) She recognized her moment. She knew that Jesus was visiting her town, and might not be back. There are 'God-moments' in life when you've got to overcome your fear and move out in faith. If you don't, you'll miss them. (3) She opened the door for others. I believe she became a trail blazer for others. Up until that time, no one in Scripture had been healed by touching Jesus' garment. So her act of faith opened the door for others. "People brought all their sick to Him and begged Him to let the sick just touch the edge of His cloak, and all who touched Him were healed. I believe God's still looking for people who are willing to break with tradition and just take Him at His Word.

William Balfour Mother.

One thing about most mothers, they will defend their children to the end. And Black mothers, man please they don’t give a rat tail they will stand by their children no matter what the circumstances are. The way William Balfour mother is acting tells me she have traveled this road before. Therefore I am not surprise that William Balfour is going off like this because he knows his mom is going to buy hook ,line and sinker of ever thing he says. But, what I don’t understand is why is she throwing other people names out there like that, I know she don’t want her son to go down but to throw so many other women children out there to take heat is not right. If the police don't have evidence against her son where's the evidence against the other mothers children? Listen to how she explains that one of Balfour girlfriends Shanta is a “mad black woman”. From what I am seeing she could make it worst for her son by running her mouth. Shanta better get her stuff together and be praying that she didn't have anything to do with this senseless murder. Because, mom is going to make sure someone join her son guilty or not.

Alcoholic Anthem!

My question for Kirk Franklin is how could you let T-Pain destroy a gospel song like that? How could you let him talk about alcohol as being the Silver and Gold? Some people will say so whats the big deal? The big deal for me is that during my early years of Christian growth that song was one of the most powerful songs I had heard. I would ponder those words over and over what a beautiful picture of our KING. Lyrics here:

Anyone who's familar with gospel music have heard the song "Silver and Gold" and understands what the song represents. The artist T-Pain did a remix of the popular song and leaked it to the Internet a few months back. Singing about the effects of blending clear and colored Patrón tequila together for consumption. "You'll be hanging, swanging, drinking two types of Patrón," he sings. "I done mixed up silver and gold/ I done mixed up silver and gold/ I'mma tryin' to get drunk before this party/ Somebody's gonna have to carry me home/ I done drank the silver and gold."

While T- Pain's fans ate it up Kirk Franklin wasn't having it. Kirk call T-Pain and wanted to no what was going on. Franklin debuted the original "Silver and Gold" on his 1993 Kirk Franklin and the Family album. The gospel version goes: "Silver and gold/ Silver and gold/ I'd rather have Jesus than silver and gold/ No fame or fortune/ Nor riches untold/ I'd rather have Jesus than silver and gold." T-Pain told Kirk that the song was leaked and it was not supposed to be on his album. Franklin said it wasn't no disrespect but he no how songs get leaked. He had it happen to him before. He said he wasn't a saint, and it wasn't like he never did nothing wrong. It seems as if Kirk has given T-Pain the OK to continue on with the song. Only if he changed the melody. He can still say silver and gold. Again, the lyrics to this song is very powerful ( Lyrics) even T-Pain knew that something was wrong with what he was doing because, he made a statement to that affect: I made it into an alcoholic anthem, which wasn't good. I guess in the end it's all about the money.

Sin Will Take You Farther Than You Plan To Go.

The Detroit News has reported that J Moss has been ordered to pay child support to a Georgia woman, after a court-ordered DNA test confirmed his paternity of her child to a degree of 99.9%. A default judgment was entered against the singer, who was ordered to pay $1,028 monthly in support of the son born in March of this year, based on estimated earnings of $50,000 monthly. [Legalese: when a party fails to show up to court to contest an issue, a "default judgment" is entered against that party.]

The Detroit News reports that court documents reveal that the woman, age 28, is unemployed, has a teenage daughter and is divorced. The documents also list J Moss as married with two children. In her court filings, the woman alleges that Moss offered to pay for abortion expenses. Read the full article here.

When I first read the article, I was upset. I was most upset with the fact that he’s married and with the allegations that he would offer to pay abortion expenses. The old adage says that our talents are God’s gifts to us but what we do with them is our gift to Him. In this song," We must Praise" J Moss sings the virtues of the same. It is about the beauty that comes with understanding that everything we have, we can use for something much greater than ourselves and to the glory of God. It is one of the most beautifully written songs that I have heard in a long time. I love worship music and some artists are great worship leaders. To me J Moss is one of them.
